I haven't played this all that much, but it's got some nice aspects. In particular the bold spherical high-res 2D art style is gorgeous here, a nice surprise after I couldn't bear to play the earlier Puzzle & Action on the Saturn due to the horrible sprite jaggies and rotation or whatever the heck they were doing back then.
 
Haven't been able to get in to Bonanza Bros' gameplay so far. On the one hand it feels very limited and claustrophobic going through these buildings stealing things, and on the other hand... Wait, I only got one hand on this one.
 
The remade Puzzle & Action seemed like it might be another Gacharoku (entry 92) at first, with four-player freestyle 2D minigame action, but many of the games are curiously annoying. It's funny 'cause they seem like good games and all and not that much different from Gacharoku, but somehow they're frustrating rather than envigorating. Definitely doesn't help that a lot of them require one player to win three times in a row without screwing up, and until that happens the game just goes on forever. I haven't played it all that much through so maybe we just got the not-so-hot among the minigames.
