The TwinBee series came from Japan where it was pretty huge, but yeah this one managed to make it over here. I can't imagine anybody would forget playing a unique game like this considering all the insane items and characters. Refresh your memory and try it out again. Who wouldn't want to fight a deadly seed-spitting watermelon?
I should also mention this game has one of the best power-up theme songs EVER
Also worth noting: I like Stinger so much in fact that I did a spoof on the watermelon boss battle for one of our big Halloween stories a few years ago in which you have to throw Cheetos at him while avoiding his deadly seeds. You can play it at the bottom of this page:
