    I'm not a big fan of the Cotton series, so I wouldn't know which one to choose. I was going to include Star Parodier, but decided against it, as it's quite an obscure game that doesn't get mentioned much. Twinkle Star Sprites at least gets mentioned quite often, so lots of people are fond of it.

    But if someone wants to say a Cotton game, or maybe Star Parodier is more their cup of tea, that's fine. I just make these threads for a bit of fun and to create interesting debate.

    Cute em ups are by far my favourite sub-genre

    Out of all those Pop n Twinbee is obviously the best choice ... and as fantastically cute as Twinkle Star Sprites is, Id have probably gone for Harmful Park instead. Star Parodier and Magical Chase are pretty awesome too.

    Not listed, but I think my favorite is Star Parodier. The only cute-‘em-ups I currently own are Parodius Da! (GB) and Magical Chase (GBC).

    Mine too. There's something about cute shoot 'em ups that puts a smile on my face.

    I could easily create another cute 'em up thread.

    I've featured Harmful Park before, so decided against it. Star Parodier is great, so I was going to include it. I forget about the excellent Magical Chase. Thanks for reminding me.

    I sunk so many hours into Fantasy Zone when I was a kid, it was one of the games that really made the SMS stand out above the NES (for me at least).
    I'm sorry to say I've never played any of the others on that list.

    You should add this disclaimer to all your Retro Arena threads as there's always one!
    Keep up the good work as they're a good laugh and, for me, an excuse to try some classics I'd missed.

    Star parodier, havent played that in years. Used to have that one, loved how all the powerups were console addons felt satisfying powering up. Shame i never completed it as my laser on my briefcase unit barely worked.

    Has to be Parodius for me. So fun and charming. Has that early Konami charm.

    I'll go with Pop'n Twinbee on SNES great game, back when Konami were at the top of their game.

    It's definitely a SMS system game that lots of people have fonds memories of. The really bright, colourful graphics are full of charm.

    I was going to put a disclaimer, but I think most people realise these threads are just about me pitting 4 or 6 games against each other. It's not about listing every game in any particular genre. It's fine if someone wants to choose an alternative game, as that makes the discussion more interesting.

    I remember loving it back in the day. The graphics are full of detail and charm, the music is uplifting brilliance, and it plays really well. Konami really knew how to make the SNES shine.
