But such is its quickfire structure and moreish appeal that petty gripes fall by the wayside and concerted practice kicks in.

Painful childhood memories aside, 99Bullets otherwise pays great homage to that era of arcade shooters – and intriguingly takes their focus on achieving high scores and actually makes it the win condition, while further keeping you on your toes with a restricted amount of ammunition. This is another in the line of quirky, interesting hybrid-genre concepts that have found their niche in the DSi Shop. And its 99 bullets are well worth 500 of your pennies to own.Leer análisis

99bullets is about learning rather than doing: each run-through of arcade mode starts at the first level, so replaying layouts and learning to perfect them is the cornerstone of its design. There is a level select to practice any previously completed stage, but this could have done with something smarter – a randomly generated endless mode, or at least some online leaderboards. As it is, 99Bullets is a smart idea, executed in a very controlled fashion, but could do with letting its hair down occasionally.
