Nintendo DS

This is the box for Nanostray

Nanostray is a shooter. You shoot things. The goal of the game is to win and not die, just like Final Fantasy 7.

Graphics: 8/10
The graphics are pretty good for a portable system. The graphics are better than any of the current shooters on the PSP by far. There is some slow down and even some flicker, I swear.

Here is a game screen for Nanostray.

Sound: 7/10
The game does not seem to have as good a stereo effect as most DS games do. The music is probably the best on the DS, but that's not saying a whole lot. Sound effects are fair.

Here is another screen for Nanostray.

Gameplay: 6/10
There are horizontal shooters, vertical shooters, and meandering shooters. Nanotstray is a meandering, meaning it goes all over the place without purpose, just like Raystorm. These are by far my least favorite type of shooters. Game has 8 stages and is fairly easy. You collect coins and shoot things. Stuff unlocks when you beat it. Stuff nobody cares about. The touch screen is useless. Stick with a single weapon through the entire game (the 3rd from the top). The 2nd screen and touch screen are a complete gimmick in this game and actually detract from play. Game is pretty fun for a non-Japanese programmed shooter.

Here is the last screen on this page for Nanostray.

Wrap up
This is a shooting game for the Nintendo DS.
