(Moero TwinBee - Cinnamon Hakase o Sukue!)
Moero Twinbee is a cute shooter and is the second episode of the Twinbee series released by Konami for the Famicom System. The scientist Dr. Cinnamon has been kidnapped and it is the player's duty to bring him back home safe. No less than three pilots are up to the challenge : The now familiar blue Twinbee, the pink Winbee girl and the green Gwinbee. Interestingly, a three simultaneous player mode is available and all three pilots can be played at the same time ! This option was sadly taken out of the American cartridge version... All the traditional twinbee elements are reunited here. Our bees can shoot enemies up in the air or drop bombs on the ground. Floating bells (they look more like jingle bells here) can also be cracked open and release all sort of power-ups. Interestingly, this episode also features horizontal scrolling stages which is really unusual (and unique) for the series.
