Moero! Twinbee: Cinnamon Hakasei wo Sukue is a cute
shooter and is the second episode of the Twinbee series
released by Konami for the Famicom System.
The scientist Dr. Cinnamon has been kidnapped and it is the player's duty
to bring him back home safe. No less than three pilots are up to the challenge :
The now familiar blue Twinbee, the pink Winbee girl and the green Gwinbee.
Interestingly, a three simultaneous player mode is available and
all three pilots can be played at the same time !
This option was sadly taken out of the American cartridge version...
All the traditional twinbee elements are reunited here. Our
bees can shoot enemies up in the air or drop bombs on the ground.
Floating bells (they look more like jingle bells here) can
also be cracked open and release all sort of power-ups. Interestingly,
this episode also features horizontal scrolling stages which is
really unusual (and unique) for the series.
