Party games are often where franchises go to either die or try to make an easy buck. Pac-Man Party doesn't seal Pac-Man's future as dead, but it sure makes us hope this isn't where he plans to stay...
We don’t know what’s more surprising – that people turn up in their thousands to watch lumpen men in shiny shirts throw needles into a tiny target, or that they do so as far afield as Blackpool and Las Vegas.Beer probably accounts for a lot of the darts’ appeal, hence its traditional location in a mouldy corner of every pre-Wetherspoons local pub.
Aren’t we over the whole ‘which random cool people are better?’ thing? Pirates, ninjas, zombies, aliens – they’re all here in this self-consciously ‘wacky’ dodgeball game. And if the premise of blathering on about how cool pirates and ninjas are is a bit tired, the game itself isn’t much better.
Pirates in general are awesome, unlike this initially promising but ultimately drab and one-dimensional watery shoot ’em up. Shame, because we like pirates (couldn’t you tell?).
Quick, Jeeves, to the local supermarket and fetch me some aspirin. I’ve been playing this bally puzzler that makes no sense. My wrist aches, and it’s driving me further and further into a pit of despair with every passing second!” If only we all had a butler. You could remove the final ‘t’ from this game’s title and it would give a more accurate idea of what to expect.
It may be a kiddy game, but PokePark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure is quite decent as far as Pokemon spin-off games go, if you approach it with the right mindset. You play as Pikachu, and your adventure consists of exploring the park and unlocking new areas by playing the various attractions (i.e. minigames) and making friends with all the Pokemon. Compared to the core Pokemon games, it's ultra simplistic and often repetitive, but the pretty graphics and Pokemon fanservice make it oddly compelling, despite the minigame-heavy formula sounding terrible on paper...
There’s a special corner of hell for frat boys, and in it they should be forced to play Pong Toss.
On the face of it, Pop is a game about bursting bubbles. Delve a little deeper, however… and you’ll find it’s a game about bursting bubbles. Hmm. But despite this most simple of premises, it’s actually a rather decent, pleasingly colourful and curiously addictive little shooter. And shooter it is. You aim a set of crosshairs at the screen and blast away at wave after wave of different coloured bubbles in search of a
In the ancient art of matching coloured shapes, the tiles are usually dropped in from somewhere off the screen and the player has to get rid of them before they reach the top. In Samegame the screen starts out completely full and no more tiles are introduced. You can’t switch them around either. You’ve got to get rid of what’s already there by looking for two or more of the same colour, moving the cursor over them and pressing a button to make them vanish. The rest then shuffle along to fill the gaps.
