A game that has been available for the iPhone for a while is now the subject of a port to the PSN minis range of games thanks to Grip Games and SuperMono Studios.  MiniSquadron is best described as and old school flavored 2D shoot-em-up that is contained within a few screens worth of space and has you going back and forth knocking down wave after wave of enemy planes.

MiniSquadron is a frantic shooter involving lots of little planes vying for the supremacy of the skies! The player takes control of one of his airplanes and has to battle for the victory, using crazy weapons and incredible aerial stunts!

minis Review Blimp: The Flying Adventures

Recently Craneballs Studios released Blimp: The Flying Adventures on the PSP, and even though I tried this game out on the iPhone first, I was interested to see how the game stacked up on the PSP. But before I do that, first let me bring you up to speed on what you’re getting yourself into. A long time ago in a galaxy pretty far far away, there was a planet called Solbot, it was a great strategic outpost in the galaxy and so the power hungry aliens from the planet Tarra who by the way look a lot like the Helghast, well except they have green eyes not red attacked it. The current inhabitants weren’t having any of it so they drove them back with the help of Zed Pelin. Zed Pelin did what he could and because of his help he became a captain.

Official Review: A Space Shooter For Two Bucks

Let’s get things going with a message from the makers of this Two Dollar Bills project:

Since time immemorial, through eons of time and dozens of game consoles, one thing has remained true: humans love hopping into a spaceship to shoot up hordes of alien invaders! In A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! (a game with perhaps the most straight-forward title in history) you get to do just that. Take control of Commander P. Jefferson and go on an intergalactic shooting spree, hopping from galaxy to galaxy in your attempts to wipe out hordes of swarming alien baddies. With over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek humor from the game’s wide cast of colorful characters (all of which are fully voiced-over) and loads of bodacious power-ups to ensure your ship has a fighting chance against the sea of enemy ships and bullets, A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! gives gamers everything they could ask for in a space shooter!

With that as our starting point, we can now dive deeper into this new release. Since the game is only $2, how great it can be, right? Well, I’ve had more fun with it than with some $40-$60 retail releases so that should initially give you an idea of how good I think it is.
