Save Professor Cinnamon! When aliens from the planet Attackon kidnap the inventor during their invasion of Earth, two TwinBee Stinger jets (armed with boxing gloves) are unleashed to rescue Cinnamon before the aliens turn the Earth into a giant ball of cotton candy!

In this vertical and horizontal scrolling shooter, blast away unusual creatures and even more bizarre bosses, while collecting power-ups and super weapons. By repeatedly shooting bells that come out of the clouds, these bells will change colors, each color giving a different ability. Getting shot down releases a ghost of Stinger, which can be recollected to gain the jet's powers back.

In the two-player mode, if TwinBee (cyan craft) and GwinBee (green craft) align their flights (one behind the other) they can turn their guns into a ripple laser. The Japanese version features a three players mode, with the addition of WinBee (the magenta craft, which was removed from the US version).

Cover art

Though the NES version had WinBee (the magenta craft) removed from the game, it still appears in the cover art, which was based on the Japanese one.

Regional Differences

Other than the Famicom version allowing 3 players instead of just 2 for the NES version, the Famicom version also has opening and ending screens showing the three grandchildren of Dr. Cinnamon. The Famicom version also offers difficulty level options.
