SailorMoon SailorStars Balloon Puzzle Game
(Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SailorStars - Fuwa Fuwa Panic 2)

The sequel to Fuwa Fuwa Panic, this time released on the Bandai Sufami Turbo accessory.  Sufami Turbo was designed to allow games to be produced at a cheaper rate with lower development and production times.  Some Sufami Turbo games also allowed content sharing between cartridges since the unit had two cartridge slots but this wasn't utilized with the SailorStars game.  This game is yet another quick thinking strategic exercise that fans of Bust-A-Move will enjoy.  Balloons can only be destroyed if they are inflated and touching another inflated balloon of the same color.  The more balloons popped at once, the more lead balloons will flood your opponents screen.  While the action is fast, control is a little sluggish.  This is a bit of a shame since this game is essentially the sequel to the far superior Sailor Moon SuperS balloons puzzle game.  Some of the backgrounds are pretty cool and the over all presentation is very nice.  However when it comes down to gameplay, I'd much rather stick with the SuperS version.  I can't put my finger on it but something just doesn't feel right about this game, something that the SuperS version nailed.

Selected Screen Shots:

The character selection screen is nice but why not feature everyone from the previous game as well? I really do love the background on Sailor Venus' stage, it's a Three Lights concert.

Single player challenge modes are back and this time they can be very challenging indeed. For the most part though, it's a game we've already seen.  Did this really need a sequel?

Let's book it!
