The first thing you will notice about this game is how
sickeningly cute it is. The colors are as bright as the
wallpaper in a baby's nursery. Lots of pink and powder blue. It
is enough to make you gag or put some Barney music in the
background. But if you can get past the color scheme, you have a
pretty good game.
(Attack of the Killer
Blue's Journey (with no relation
to Blue's Clue, except in the cute factor) is a typical side
scroller where you have to go from left to right to finish a
level. There are your customary villains, with a wide assortment
of beasties including dinosaurs and some creatures that look
like giant chicken nuggets. Honest! I didn't know if I should
hit them or dip them in some sweet and sour sauce. One neat
feature is that once you whack a bad guy, you can then pick them
up and toss them at other bad guys.
(Is that a pink dinosaur? You
have got to be joking!)
Want to know how cute this game
is? You start off hitting the bad guys with a flower. Really!
Flower power at its best! You later get some more manly bombs,
but that is after alot of pansy pummeling.
As is the case with many side
scrollers, there is the shop where you can buy stuff to aid you
in your journey. You can get tougher flowers, things to heal and
containers to hold all your pretty weapons. Of course, you pay
by picking up flowers which seem to be the currency. My guess is
that FTD would be the richest company in this world. That would
make Merlin Olson some kind of deity, a very scary thought .
There are also the usual end of
level bad guys, who need alot of hits to defeat. They are also
quite cute, which makes beating them up all the harder. Give me
a tough bad guy, not some cutesy tootsie. Don't let them looks
fool you as they pack a wallop and will hurt you bad. So don't
giggle at them, instead start battling as they will not stop for
So if you like side scrollers and
don't mind bright colors and fighting with flowers, this is a
pretty good game. It has a ton of challenges and keeps you on
your toes. So go ahead and download it, but make sure you wear
some manly clothes to offset all the cuteness.
