 We love Virtual Console but man fuck writing a full review of something we just paid six dollars for. Have a Quick Hit instead.

Why yes, I'm proud to be the first to review a DSiWare title on Lardpirates. Why do you ask?

An NES-styled game created to promote Dark Void, a third-person shooter for the Xbox which, aside from a tragically underused gameplay element of hijacking alien UFOs in mid-flight and then getting into UFO-on-UFO dogfights, was pretty damn bland. Thankfully, Dark Void Zero holds up much better, being built as a nonlinear sidescrolling shooter with some puzzle solving elements. Think Blaster Master or the old Duke Nukem platformers for DOS and you've got a pretty good idea of how this game operates. The only downside is its short length - while it will take you a few tries to get through, the fact that there are only three stages still makes it feel a bit short.

A rare instance of a promotional game being better than the game it was created to promote. If you've got 500 DSiWare points and you're looking for some retro shooter action, I say check it out.
