Quoted from Maboshi's Arcade Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Maboshi's Arcade reviews & previews
"Judged purely on its ideas and gameplay, MaBoShi comes highly recommended to anyone with a taste for Japan's oddball puzzle games. And yet there's still more to unearth through dedicated play, including replays of your best runs that you can send to your Wii Friends, as well as the ability to download a smaller version of the game to your DS - completely free. And all this for just 800 Points. Such thought and generosity puts most of the WiiWare line-up to shame."
"I'm a huge fan of many of Nintendo's "simple but creative" WiiWare games like the recently released ArtStyle series, and Maboshi's Arcade fits wonderfully within this initiative. It's a game design that offers simple controls and challenging gameplay in a presentation that's refreshingly unique. Some parts are more addictive than others, but the whole package makes for a much recommended download on the Wii. And thanks to a cool connectivity feature, it's a much recommended DS download, too."
"Maboshi's Arcade is an addictive original puzzle game with three separate gameplay modes that all interlock for a fun multiplayer experience. Even though I dislike Square, the other two games more than make up it."
"MaBoShi is a very strange and unique game. Perhaps it is not one that will keep you glued to the screen for hours at a time, but it really is addictive and will have you coming back often to try to better that elusive high score set the day before. With friends around, the proposition is even more attractive. The game is complemented by a surprisingly excellent soundtrack and the Nintendo DS download version is the icing on the cake. Nintendo made a good choice in publishing MaBoShi outside of Japan, which is a testament to the potential they saw in it. If you fancy something completely different to experience on WiiWare, this might just be the game for you."
