      Highly addictive puzzler....

      Super Pang is a Japanese animated puzzler that owes much to the like of Tetris and Bust-A-Move in that you must work against the clock to achieve an objective across several levels of increasing difficulty. But with Pang you don't have to get combinations of colours together to earn points, instead the basic idea is fasr simplier! Here, balloons fall from the sky and you, playing as one of two characters, must run back and forth with a gun making them all pop. Think a combination between Tetris and Space Invaders and you might be getting a little closer....but be warned, every time you pop a balloon, it makes several smaller balloons and every time you pop them.....

      Super Pang collection gathers together two of the best play-modes from this addictive puzzler on one disc; as featured in many of the arcades up and down the country once upon a time. Oh how well I remember playing this when I was in my teens, fumbling in my pockets for another 10p so I could get that little bit further.....

      Your play options here are either Panic Mode where the bubbles fall from the top of the screen at increasing speeds or World Tour which, like in Bust-A-Move 2, features levels based around well recognised locations such as the Taj Mahal and The Great Wall Of China. Each has its own appeal though, Panic Mode can be a little short-lived and can get really quite manic at times with you relying on special balloons on most occassions with which to clear the screen!

      World Tour sees you moving across a map, travelling all across the globe. At the end of each completed section, you get to choose where you want to go next and on each level, you can pick up alternative weapons to aid you in your quest such as the Uzi or a grappling hook that is actually quite effective in clearing away the screen!

      But like most games of this genre, be warned because this simple game can quickly become very, very addictive! If you do pick up this piece of nostalgia, you may want to practise the phrase "just one more game..." because you will be saying it a lot!
