hmm gonna try it out
maybe it's a fun game
Another Disney/Pixar movie?
Ah well.. they all have been fun.. so.. I'll check this one out as well.
I give a fuck about the game. But the nfo made my day.
ILSA GOLD RULEZ ! Back to 94, and pop n E.
It's amazing that almost noone knows about this one. I don't know how, but I've been looking forwards to it since... forever. The game, I'll try too.
i hope its not the adventure style like new super mario bros where u can only walk to the left or right
nuts, the youtube clip has been removed? So, any screenshots for us to look at?
I'll see about screens in a sec on no$gba if I can. According to some people on a rom site, it's a 3D platformer. Will confirm in a few minutes.
EDIT- is indeed a 3D platformer, but appears to be a bit linear. Possibly like Crash Bandicoot.
Appears to control well and have decent graphics in my limited emulator testing. I'll write to my card later and play a little. I'll be open minded here.
cool, thanks granville.
Wow thats a stunner. The graphics look decent yeah..... Its one of the few good movie games like Monsters vs. Aliens huh?
No problem. I also tried Ratatouille and it was pretty fun as well. I'll definitely play this some more in case there's a gem hidden underneath.
And was the DS Monsters VS Aliens good? I heard it wasn't. And was it full 3D as well? Not just sidescrolling, I mean real 3D.
well, its more like a bunch of minigames together, that giant girl and the fishlike dude seems more towards your usual side-scrolling platform.
While, the bob would cater to the more stealthy variant.
And then, there is the insectsaur which is basically just walking around in a 3d environment crushing stuff.
and then, there is the coachroch section which is a bunch of laser puzzles.
But then again, i only completed the tutorials before i stop playing.
Well, thanks for the info. I'll try to play a little of Up DS and give impressions tomorrow. If I remember that is!
haha, thanks for the review (coming soon to a post near you by granville)
:/ WTF is this? How can anyone hate the concept of a 2D platformer? What are you, like nine years old?
Doesn't look too bad for a Disney game IMO.
The Ginormica levels were okay, but the rest of it was pretty poor. The Wii version of Monsters vs. Aliens, however, was surprisingly good.
Ok I tried a couple of levels of this and really didn't like it. It's very linear like Lego Star Wars on DS, but without the fun. It uses the same engine from Tak Great Juju challenge DS and Meet the Robinsons DS. That means decent 3D graphics and smooth framerate. Too bad the platforming seems bland and the levels duller than they should be.
And I'd wait for the movie if I were you. This game will likely spoil the story and not in a good way either.
Carl is the old man and Russell is the fat boy scout kid. They can both double jump and move around normally. Switch between them with X. They follow each other until one separates from the other. Attacking uses up a special meter below your health. It recharges fast in a few seconds. Carl attacks with his cane, Russell with his bug net. Carl is ironically the only one who can climb up ledges even though he walks with a cane. He has to pull Russell up to get him on a ledge. Russell is the only one who can swim. You can break rocks to unearth bugs which Russell can catch in his bug net. I believe the bugs are for purchasing gadgets. The one gadget I have found so far is the hearing aid which I will explain in the next paragraph.
POSSIBLE MOVIE SPOILERS-
Apparently, these weird dogs are after you. I don't know why really, but I suspect the movie is going to explain better. Anyways, after the first level, you will fight a dog off in a pseudo-boss battle. From then on I suppose, you will have a meter on the bottom screen that slowly empties. It is supposed to be the amount of time until the dogs find you and attack you. If the meter empties, you will enter a battle between several dogs. I didn't worry about the meter after this as the battle was easy as pie. But there are two ways to avoid the dogs: 1- you can stand still for a few seconds and the meter will deplete. 2- you can use the hearing aid as an amplifier which seems to confuse the dogs. This also depletes the dog meter, but at the expense of your quickly regenerating attack meter.
Overall, this game is average. I didn't find anything truly amazing about it, but there's also not much wrong with it besides having nothing that hasn't been done before. I guess I give it a 6/10. It's ok, but there are far better games out there. The one thing this game has going for it is the 3D engine. It's really smooth and animates fairly well. But the engine has already been used in two far superior games- Tak Great Juju Challenge and Meet the Robinsons. The sound is nothing to write home about at all. No voices either, just text.
old dude looks like henry hatsworth, though the game itself does not
Awesome, I needed a new casual game to play. I don't play NDS much anymore but this game looks like fun to play when I'm bored.
