Hurry through a big number of 5-second silly microgames and watch cutscenes now and then.
GAMEPLAY: Mostly just press A or a couple of directions to beat 200~ microgames. Many are very creative and it’s a blast to play!
AUDIOVISUALLY: Paint-like drawings mixed with low-quality photos. It’s charming and timeless. The audio is creative, but not as memorable as in the sequels.
STORY/PRESENTATION: Some of the little cutscenes are funny, but all in all I’d rather be without them. The structure is pretty great and it’s simple fun to pick up and attempt a high score at any time.
MULTIPLAYER: You unlock a few 2 player mini-games that only use one button each. They’re quite fun once or twice! But taking turns playing the main microgames is more fun.
Ahead of its time with microgames like these, and it really is a lot of fun even today! It’s over very quickly if you’re decent at it though, as you’ve experienced it all within 2 hours.
