Personal review
The Twinbee Famicom Disk System version could only be obtained via the Disk Writer method where you bought an empty disk and could copy a game for a small fee at certain copy stations. A regular version with box and manual was never available. The game of course is identical to the Famicom version which appeared two years earlier. Twinbee is a colorful and well playable vertical scrolling shoot'em up game. Technically a few steps below the arcade version but still a well done conversion. Gameplay reminds a bit of Xevious with switching between shooting airborne enemies and bombing ground targets, but TwinBee looks and sounds better and is more varied. Power ups are gained by finding and collecting bells in clouds after shooting them until they change to a certain desired color. The five implemented stages are rather short. Only the last two levels are relatively difficult. Beginners will like the easy first half of the game.
