TrickyNotebook Wars 3: UnleashedGotta say. As fun as the game is, you have to believe that Francisco Ferreres missed a prime opportunity with his newest installment in everyone's favorite loose-leaf shooter series. True, Notebook Wars 3: Unleashed features twenty brand new levels of vertical-scrolling action, and kicks the speed and challenge up considerably. But what the heck's up with that subtitle? Surely they could have come up with a paper-based pun to kick off the proceedings! How about Notebook Wars 3: Marginalized? Or Notebook Wars 3: Hole Puncher? It's a good thing that the game so begs to be played, since this reviewer could be here all day making suggestions.

Fly and fire by moving and clicking the mouse, or, if you prefer, with the [WASD] keys, with [K] for shooting. Whether keyboard or mousing, you'll still use [E] to drop screen-clearing bombs and [F] to turn on autofire. Controls are re-mappable. Defeat enemies and pick up coins to be spent between levels for upgrading your plane. Each level features Easy, Frenetic, and Hard modes, and achievements can be unlocked for success on all three levels of difficulty. While Notebook Wars 3: Unleashed is definitely an expansion pack rather than an entirely new feeling game, it's a well-thought out one with new features are nicely integrated into the existing game. Sure, it kinda boils down to new levels, gameplay improvement and more polish, but the overall course of the series has always been the continued refinement of the killer idea at its core: taking the sketchy warfare pencil doodles of classrooms everywhere, and bringing them to life. Since Notebook Wars 3: Unleashed keeps doing that, and doing it well, it should keep players quite happy.

There appears to be a glitch level 7 which does not allow you to get three stars for any of the missions. I've replayed the level probably a dozen times now and I am confident I have destroyed every enemy and still I cannot achieve three stars. Normally I wouldn't care but it's kind of annoying when I've managed to get three stars on every other level.

Significant bug: The best ship in the game the Triplane, I suppose was supposed to be sold 63,000, but it can be bought for just 6,300. Sort of breaks the game...

Oh, and @hothotpot, I get the same thing. 93 enemies, no matter what I do. The funny thing is, the map screen says it's 93/95 enemies, and the level completion screen says it's 93/96 enemies. So like above, it might just be a typo in the code.

Really annoyed that any add ons I get don't carry over. It seems like big waste of money if your going to pass up it for something better later.

@hothotpot: I was able to get a perfect set in lv 7 on all stages. Try hanging around after you win. I think there is a delayed enemy that will die once it appears.

@Hotspot: I had the same issue, but I was finally able to get them all using homing missiles. I had to do it a few times.
