Flametail (DSiWare)

Game Profile

The year is 2099, and the solar system is littered with space junk.

Our best hope for a tidier cosmos is to send the Flametail incinerator pod from planet to planet for a little fiery cleanup. Take control of the Flametail pod and start winding your way through obstacles, then watch as your flaming tail ignites blocks of troublesome debris and eventually eliminates them. Be careful not to work yourself into a dead end, and don't let the hazard line that follows you catch up to your tail or reach any leftover garbage.

Luckily, you can find useful items (such as bombs or score multipliers) along your path and earn special power-ups (like radar or a missile) by collecting letter panels to spell particular words. Effectively burn up the floating garbage in the game's two modes - Space Tour and Time Limit - and earn new graphics and other surprises as you progress. The straightforward controls make it possible for anyone to take on the job of restoring space to pristine condition. Do you have what it takes to make your way to the outer reaches of the solar system?

A nice piece of tail

Flametail began life as the "Square" bit of the rather unique WiiWare release MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade. Instead of a straight port of the game, the developers chose to not only give the game a nice little visual facelift but also a host...

One-third of MaBoShi reborn on DSiWare

If you've played 3-in-1 WiiWare game MaBoShi, then you'll recognise Moyasu Puzzle Flametail as the "Square" game -- you know, the one that wasn't played with a single button press? The gameplay in Flametail is largely the same as MaBoShi's Square, but there have been some graphical enhancements and the addition of power-ups and a new play mode..

Considerg that the game doesn't even have a PAL release date, the article name should be at Flametail (which is in both the North American and Japanese name), it's the PAL name that is odd.

Ok, downloaded this tonight and have played it... only thing I don't like about it is having to play with the control pad and the A button whilst having the dsi turned sideways. I hate having to do that, just doesn't seem natural to me. Anyway, I give it a 5/10 for being colorful and different, and I like the sound effects. hehe... Seems like it could have been much more. Is it just me or does that seem to be the problem with most dsiware games?
