SummaryA great shoot 'em up that too few Westerners have played
The GoodJapanese game design is all over Coryoon. The storyline takes it away from the space setting you get in most shoot 'em ups. There's a great variety in the enemies you face, with wall-mounted moving spiders and their webs, penguins, firing sea-creatures and loads more. Everything is surprising and imaginative throughout.
The use of fruit gives you something to aim for, and ensures that the game has an inherent cuddliness and a light-hearted feel (it makes a change from burgers and hot dogs as energy recharges anyway).
Graphics and sound are extremely impressive, controls are responsive and the difficulty curve is well-judged.
The BadThere are occasions where the amount going on makes it difficult to tell where the enemy bullets are, so you will find yourself losing lives surprisingly at times. Fortunately the difficulty level isn't excessively high, and you still have every chance of completing the game.
