Rather unique cutesy vertical shooter in which you control a triumvirate of young lads flying over the landscape. One button fires, the other rotates between the boys, and of course each has a different shot: spread shot, tracking banana shot, and light saber.
Graphics and sound aren't the greatest but they get the job done, and the game zips right along nice and smooth-like. In fact the game wouldn't be that hard except that the enemies move so darn fast. Yet they have a certain childish charm to them and the bosses in particular show some creativity in taking everyday objects of childhood obsession (race cars, trains) and turning them in to foxy bullet-shooting opponents. Once you get enough powerups your kids become quite the death-dealing trifecta, blowing up everything in sight in a satisfying way.
