[Budget re-release] If you've never played Parasol Stars before (a) why not? and (b) you really ought to. For a very reasonable slice of dosh a game can be yours that brings untold hours (well, three or four) of supreme enjoyment into this sad little game of ours we call Life. (Ahem.)
Oh dear. This description doesn't really seem to do the game justice. You see, Parasol Stars is brilliant. It's reminiscent of Bubble Bobble, but fortunately has much more going on. The graphics are well up to Rainbow Islands' standard and there are plenty of catchy Bubble Bobble-ish tunes, too. The beautifully-drawn and animated nasties follow you around smoothly, and there's never a hint of poor collision detection or substandard movement routines. Each screen is packed with - er, things and it looks and feels absolutely great.
