An underrated gem
This is a very fun, unique game, not just for kids either. Although most of the story isn't difficult to beat, collecting everything and getting all the fire flyers will be a challenge for even hardcore gamers, but yet it is still accessible to younger/casual gamers. The story is good and has a nice little twist. The graphics are also good, especially the cut scenes which look fantasic, along with good voice acting. There is local 2 player co-op which works out well. The gameplay is good and controls well. There's a time limit on all levels besides the boss levels though. There's a decent amount of variety between the regular levels and the boss levels. In regular levels you are growing your tornado by destroying things, and as you get bigger you can destroy bigger things. The goal of each level is to collect at least fire flyers which are hiding in various items in the enviroment. In boss levels you have to first race making a high vortex going through targets, then you approach the boss while you have to avoid light and other things, and then you battle the boss by attacking him which is just hitting him before he closes. All in all this game is fun and definetly a nice break from other games as there isn't much out there like this. I think more people should give this a try.
I picked up this game simply becouse of the price and the fact that its something differnt. Upon getting it up and started my 11 year old daughter took to it and has a great time playing it. Controles are simple story is simple but its fun! Great game for the younger gamers! highly recomended!
Looks very fun
I can remember a time when that was all a game needed to be. Oh well... This game seems to have the same 'flavor' as Konami's other simple-yet-fun game Elebits. This game will probably end up just as under appreciated as Elebits.
