Twin Bee Yahhoo! Fushigi no Kuni de Dai Abare!! (c) 1995 Konami.

Twin Bee Yahho! differs from Detana!! TwinBee in that the player can adjust their playing style before starting the game to suit their preference. The player begins by choosing between three difficulty settings: Practice, Normal, and Special. Practice course is the game's easiest setting and lasts only three stages, whereas the Special course is the hardest setting and is recommended to expert players. The player will then select between four different charged shots. The regular Charge Shot from Detana! TwinBee is selectable, along with a Charge Punch, a Charge Split (which will cause the player's ship to shoot duplicates of itself), and a Charge Explosion that fires at eight directions at the same time. The player will then choose between two control styles: one which fires the gun with one button and drops bombs with the second, while the other style shoots and drops bomb at the same time with a single button (either button can be used).

Like in previous Twin Bee games, there are two kinds of power-ups: bell power-ups obtained from the sky and land power-ups that can be retrieved from destroy ground enemies. The bells can be changed to up to six colors this time (yellow, blue, white, green, red, and pink), each with a unique attribute. GwinBee returns as well as a power-up item, along with the twin attacks that can be performed with GwinBee or another player.

Twin Bee Yahhoo! was released in April 1995.

The subtitle of this game translates from Japanese as 'Uproar In A Mysterious Land'.

The J-Pop song played in attract mode (make sure that get it via the dipswitches) is called 'Bokura no Suteki' and is sung by Mariko Kouda. Here are the Japanese lyrics :
kanashimi no mori o, sama you kimi wa -
futo sora o mite, uchuu o omou -
ikutsumono ginga -
IMEEJI shita, sono mune ni -
umareru yuuki -
yume o mite, aruki daseru no wa -
bokura no SUTEKI sa, kimi to -
mirai e yukou -
soba ni ite, sasae au koto wa -
inochi no SUTEKI no hitotsu -
kodoku ni ochinaide.

Here is the translated version :
You are wandering about the sorrowful woods -
See the sudden skies, think about outer space -
A lot of Galaxies -
On that imagined chest -
The courage to be born -
See the dreams and we can begin to walk -
You are lovely to us -
Going to the future -
It's in the side and supports each other -
The one lovely life -
Don't fall alone.

King Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Twin Bee Yahhoo! Original Game Soundtrack - KICA-7681) on June 7, 1995.
