I saw Nanostray going cheap on Play.com and I thought I must buy it as this type of a game will be well suited for the DS format. There are 3 difficulties settings that you can choose from which are Normal, Advanced and Super. I found normal to be a little tricky to start with and also found myself wanting better weapons, but still managed to complete the levels on my last life just. As I flicked through the instruction booklet and came across the weapons page which tells you how to change your weapons on the touch screen. This made me laugh as there I was struggling a little to complete the levels on normal looking for weapon upgrades etc.The graphics on Nanostray are excellent and very smooth running. At the end of each level you have a boss battle and once you have completed that level you then open up a high score tournament mode. Overall this is a good retro style shoot'em-up which could do with more levels and still a better selection weapons as Super Aleste had a massive display of weapons yet was still challenging.
