|A famous and excellent platform game which consists of 50 levels in total in which you must destroy the balloons which bounce around the playfield.|
Pang, also called Buster Bros and Pomping World, is single player or a cooperative two-player arcade video game released in 1989 by Capcom. The Buster brothers must finish a round-the-world quest to destroy bouncing balloons that are terrorizing several of Earth's landmarks and cities. Each location has a unique background that shows the areas most famous landmarks. The stages contain a different layout of blocks, some that disappear after being shot, others that do not, and still others that are hidden and can reveal bonuses.
The game-play is very fun and addictive, and soon enough you will be playing so much that you will be seeing pierced balloons when you close your eyes.
The graphics on CPC+ and GX4000 are marvelous, very similar to the original (in lower resolution of course), having smooth animation of the bouncing balls and colorful level designs with the most famous landmarks at the background. To be honest this is a near perfect arcade conversion! The sound is fun too featuring the original intro music theme and some of the (also) original music scores from the arcades.
