I made it to level 2 in Twinbee.

I can't even pass half the first level in Gradius

So, yeah.

Gradius is fun but difficult at times.

I'd probably go Gradius > Xevious > TwinBee imo.

Got to say, Gradius is a bit more fun and a tad more challenging. Finished it on Christmas, great fun....
Twin bee I've made it to 1-5 or 1-6. You need the shield and the 3 way shooter bullet power ups and the game becomes much easier.

I do prefer vertical shooters, even though Xevious is the king of smups in my opinion.

Both are great though!

I say Gradius.

TwinBee is a lot of fun with it's unique bell power-up system though. I beat the 99,999,000 score limit somehow. Took like 2-3 hours though. xD

TwinBee. It's a lot of fun and has a pretty good power up system.

I'd say Gradius but its not emulated properly on the 3DS.

Sound effects get cut out all the time.

TwinBee > Gradius

The original Gradius is just really meh IMHO, while Twinbee is always fun, ever since the first games (juggling with bells really add something to the basic schmup).

Though, if they finally release NES Salamander, it would be

Salamander > Twinbee > Gradius.

Salamander is my all time favorite NES schmup.

Life Force / Salamander is great.
