A young Gérard Depardieu on the cover?
No, that's Steve Irwin
Crikey! Did they take the stingray barb out for that photo?
When was this first released?
I think I made a mistake, I'll look for the correct cover...
EDIT: I found this one:
Bet Irwin never signed up for that one...
Played this on my way to work this morning, it's not too bad. Imagine it's probably taken the concept from a flash game or something but it's not a style of puzzle game I've played before. Yeah, Steve Irwin features in the game but his contribution seems to be just being splashed across the title screen and the bonus tiles having the word "Crikey" emblazoned on them. You get a grid with various different animal tiles and you have to tap matching, touching tiles in order to chain them and then tap the last one of the chain again to make them vanish. The crikey tiles and freeze tiles are wild and give you bonus points or freeze the timer if you make them vanish. There's a "sickness timer" and if you let it get to the top without making a chain it makes some of the animal tiles 'sick' and they block your chains or something (Never happened to me yet). After each level you win a nice photo of an animal and some facts about it. Might be an OK game for kids.
it's like a tribute or attraction or something
Game is based on bejeweled is it?
Erm is that cause hes dead
First ever post-humous game for the DS? I think so!
I wonder if there's a very tasteless "Kill Steve" minigame in this. The Stingray (you) has to touch Steve with its barb (the stylus).
Guys can you show a little respect.
He was on television for years and years dicking about with animals, I think it was obvious that his death would undoubtably be animal-related.
Besides, I'm fairly sure everyone is taking the piss. Everybody loved Steve Irwin (except for maybe PETA), so all the comments you think are negative should probably be taken with a huge pinch of salt.
Zoo Keeper clone?
WANT. If anyone was wondering what kind of homebrew game to make, this is a brilliant idea.
Come on now, he wasn't such a bad person. He love all the animals and got 'personal' with them, jungle fever was in his blood.
they taped a pen to his dead lifeless hand and moved it for him.
p.s. this game looks... interesting?
Great marketing trick having Steve Irwin on the cover. Made me take a look at the game. 4/10: Fun Bejeweled-like (Bejeweled is better) gameplay, but waaaaay too easy and lacking a method to track your score (there's no completion time, points (well there are points, but you will always and up with the points cap because that's when you've beaten a level), chain length record, etc.). The animal pictures and information is a good reward and can teach children and maybe even adults something about the animal world.
