B.L.U.E. Legend of Water, (SLPS-01459)
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…
Obviously, 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.
