I really liked this. It is quite different from any ball and paddle game I have ever played before. I played the hell out of this game on my Turbo Express and I am looking forward to finally playing it on a big screen. This (along with Devil's Crush) is right at the top of my VC want list and I will download both the day they are released!

This may be due to nostalgy, but I really like that game. The music is really simple and repetitive, but pretty good. The story is also quite interresting for a paddle game. If you are into this kind of game or feel intrigued by it, you should give it a try; you may like it.

For anyone wondering about the Majical Drop music you only have to look as far as the developer to get that...

Data East made both games. Looks like they recycled the only good thing this game had going for it :P
