The far North of our planet is one of the most perilous environments in the world. Take on the role of either a young Polar Bear or a Walrus growing up and trying to survive in the wild. From eating to fighting off predators, almost every aspect of the animal's life is presented to the player. Learning to live in this world is vital as they go from the regular dangers to the extreme threats. Experience the thrilling, interactive look at the walrus and polar bears that roam the vast world of the Arctic wilderness. The gameplay will evolve as the animal's age over eleven stages that take the player from snowy mountains, across turbulent ice sheets that are ravaged by blizzards, and into the frigid oceans that are patrolled by deadly killer whales. The stages alternate between free-roaming areas containing several mini-games to travel zones, which involve the player taking actions to get from one area to another. The travel zones could be anything from descending a cliff face from the mountains to the ice sheets below or surviving in the open ocean as a storm rages around you.

Arctic Atrocity (fun for 30 minutes or less)Typically, you’d think that maybe a budget title like this is automatically garbage. Well you’d be 1200% correct in saying that. Though with its barren wasteland and lame “level design” I’ve had a good half hour of fun with a couple of friends for only $2. The only gripe that tarnishes its already laughable experience would be the movement having you point your arm out at the wii sensor bar, rendering your arm tired (though I’ve combatted this by switching off who plays). Anyone looking for a game to simply enjoy its terrible-ness, this is an awesome pick!
