After the price, the best thing about Star Sweep is the translation. It's so bad, it's good. Especially the manual--tears were streaming down my face as I read the game's story. It's hilarious. Of course if I'd paid any more than $10 for this game (yes, I bought it) I'd be railing it for the stunted translation. Characters are all cute anime-style good and bad guys. The game itself is a tame puzzler with a few big gameplay problems. First of all, garbage blocks drop while you're placing pieces; that can suddenly make areas where you were going to put a piece inaccessible. Since all the pieces are the same size, you'll be stuck with lots of areas too small to put a piece. Then the screen fills up and--bam!--you're screwed. You can't move the stack up from the bottom to possibly give you more places to put them, either. It moves up by itself and not at a constant rate. So you might be ready to place something at the bottom that'd make stuff disappear, only to have the stack move up at the last second. A decent puzzler that's frustrating on higher difficulty levels.
