Mr. Monar (Shoot'em'up) by Tailzone

screenshot 1 screenshot 2

Someone has been taking some class A's while programming this one. You play a blurry green cat floating past an ascii background drawing, shooting oranges and strawberries with purple and yellow faces. Sound crazy? Ok, just a little.

As a shootemup there are a few unusual elements, like you can only shoot the oranges with yellow faces, and the strawberries with the purple ones, but unfortunately it doesn't really work too well as you can just hold down both A & B buttons at the same time and blast through anything that gets in your way. The screen is completely littered with enemies, so what you don't shoot, you will need to avoid - hit something and the cycle starts again until you run out of lives.

The musical accompaniment is a scarey score that loops very quickly, and adds to the bizarre nature of the game. High scores are saved to SMC so you can always compete against your own score. I can't recommend this for anything more than the novelty factor I'm afraid, it's just too damn wierd!
