B.L.U.E. – Legend of Water is an action adventure game that allows the player to go in underwater ancient ruins and artifacts to discover and explore in an aquatic environment.

The main character is a seventeen year old girl called Maya, whose adventure starts off with a helicopter trip to the marine research station where her father, Halbert, is working. Maya is fond of the ocean, and soon spends her days swimming around with her pet and trusty sidekick, a dolphin called Luka. Eventually, she stumbles across ancient ruins on the ocean floor, and she’s drawn into a whole new world of underwater exploration and mystery…

BLUELegendofWater-01dObviously, the game puts you in the role of Maya. You swim around with Luka, trying to solve the various puzzles and figuring out the mystery of the submerged ruins. In an attempt to add depth to the gameplay, Hudson has made Luka vital to solving many of the puzzles by making him obey simple commands such as push, stay, or swim away.

But the most crucial point is the gameplay, and this is, to an extent, B.L.U.E.’S saving grace, the sense of wonder and mystery is there. It may be buried deep within the core of the game and require a bit of work to get at, but it’s there.

World Soccer Winning Eleven (also known as Goal Storm in the export version) is the first game in the acclaimed Pro Evolution Soccer series. All of the World Cup games are represented in World Soccer Winning Eleven, and respond according to actual team performance. For example, Brazil is much better than, say, Canada. The game looks good, even if the players are a bit simply designed. The control is solid and relatively intuitive, the only major problem being the placement of the defensive tackle and goal shot on the same button. There’s even the obligatory announcer, calling plays and adding that much heralded element of realism to the game, very popular in today’s sports games.

From the creators of the comic adventure Earthworm Jim comes Wild 9 for the PlayStation. The game follows the story of Wex Major, leader of the Wild 9, a team made up of individuals with offbeat attributes, personalities (multiple ones, in some instances) and powers. Unfortunately, eight of the nine members in Wild 9 have been kidnapped by the evil Karn, and it’s up to the remaining member, Wex, to rescue them and dispose of his nemesis once and for all.

Wex’s special weapon is a “rig” attached to his arm. The rig is essentially an electronic grappling hook that can be used to climb up ledges or lasso enemies. Once you have the enemy captured, you can slam him back and forth on the ground until he explodes. If that’s too simple a death for you, you can drop enemies off of cliffs or send them into spinning fans, flames and grinders.

Wildroid 9, (SCPS-10080)Wild 9 is a side-scrolling platform game with 3D modeled effects in the foreground and background. While you can venture into and out of the backgrounds at specific points in the game, most levels involve jumping from platform to platform, rescuing one of your teammates and fighting the occasional boss. Secrets are hidden throughout the levels, and collecting 100 Wild 9 coins will earn you an extra continue at the end of each stage.

Beyond your wildest expectations. The developers of Earthworm Jim bring you an intergalactic battle of good vs. evil guaranteed to re-ignite your passion for video gaming. Continue reading ‘Wildroid 9, (SCPS-10080)’ »

Whizz was an Amiga and PC game created by Flair and ported in 1997 to the PlayStation and Saturn in Europe and Japan. Also called ‘Akupyon Game Whizz’ in Japan. Whizz is one of the few 3D platformers to use an isometric viewpoint. The controls reflect this, with moving the controller to the right actually moving the character down and right, moving it down and right moving the character down directly, and so on.

Whizz-01dEach level is played out against a time limit, and the paths through the level aren’t always clear-cut. There are four different types of doors, each of which needs a particular icon to pass (the icons represent the door type, such as ice or bricks, rather than hot water or a key, or anything you’d logically expect to clear the path). You can avoid the baddies, which may be the best option, as killing them costs you some energy this reduces the significance of the points system. Take control in this unique isometric 3D platform game as you race against the clock to find your way to reach the level goal.

STORY:
This game is about a race between Whizz, a bunny with a hot air balloon, and a rat with a zeppelin. Even though the game doesn’t really show the rat often, the first intro cut scene shows that the rat is cheating by shooting Whizz down with his shotgun. Now Whizz must search throughout the land for another hot air balloon.

GAMEPLAY:
Whizz has a mushroom as a health bar, collects flags and gems for points, and gains an extra life after getting 10,000 points. He fights with a spinning attack which can kill some of the enemies and transform them into mushrooms that can add some health to the mushroom health bar.
Unfortunately, to perform such a spinning attack he uses Continue reading ‘Whizz, (SLPS-00939)’ »
