Spinmaster (Neo Geo AES / MVS review)

Developer: Data East
Publisher: SNK
Released: 1994

Spinmaster is a run 'n' gun title that was re-released on the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console in 2010.

+ Gameplay usually includes masses of enemy fighters and explosions at the same time, yet there's no hint of slowdown.

+ Each power-up is a blast to use and being able to shoot upwards helps even the odds.

+ Mine cart and raft sections are fun diversions to stop the action from becoming too repetitive.

+ Graphics are simply gorgeous with plenty of neat background details and smooth animation.

- The game is very short and after you've spent 20 minutes completing it there's little reason to return.

- The three possible endings depending on which treasure marker you choose pre-credits consist of a singular image each.

- Bosses can easily be defeated by spamming the attack button rather than forcing you to employ skill and pattern recognition.
