North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtToxic spill cleanup has never been so much fun. In this zany game, you play an extraterrestrial goofball named Ed who mistakenly spills some space goo onto the Earth, changing its vegetable inhabitants into fierce monsters and generally turning our blue planet into a trippy, psychedelic play land. From the same kooky minds that brought you the incomparable Nintendo 64 rendition of Rayman 2, Tonic Trouble swirls together the run-and-jump action of a platform game with exploratory and puzzle-solving elements. Responsive controls, physical gags, and varied gameplay solidify the positive experience in this expansive, kid-friendly title that's challenging enough for adults. The game has an interesting system for gaining new attributes--players gather found objects and bring them to a mad doctor, who uses them to build gadgets worthy of James Bond. Skills acquired from the gadgets include flying, pogo-sticking, deep swimming, and shooting bees from a blowpipe. Get into Tonic Trouble and help Ed get out of it. --Jeff Young Pros: Brilliantly colored graphics Hilarious player design A massive game that keeps you guessing Cons: Camera angles can be problematic Occasional polygon seams show
