Is Battletoads in Battlemaniacs Naff?
In terms of sound, the game is infatuated with nice music that goes well with the levels and that gives flavor to the action. Without reaching musical heights we still manage to listen to them with pleasure (so enjoy the music of the last level). The sound effects are very limited, we can hear a few paf pif pouf here and there but nothing more and of poor quality.
In addition to being fun and engaging, the game offers a 2 player mode (A or B mode to allow “friendly fire”). The challenge is then much higher because the two of us often have to organize ourselves. Already alone we have trouble so I’ll let you imagine together!
In terms of graphics the game is not doing too badly. The sets are somewhat stripped down but given the speed of the frame that there is too much detail would have made the game too crazy. We still have some nice visual effects on the checkers game, and well-drawn characters with well-done shots. On the other hand the animation remains very basic but we do not really pay attention to all this, that is not the objective of the game.
The atmosphere of BattleToads in BattleManiacs is still very special. A mixture of action, rock, humor (what puppets these toads then) and stress. Yes the game is stressful, in addition to requiring a great concentration which is often seen rewarded by a game over, one undergoes fast, difficult levels, which put us fingers to the test, in short a nightmare for the tense ones.
The game has a well made intro that plunges directly into the game all to accompany a nice story. The graphics are fairly stripped down in terms of the scenery but the characters are well done. The animations are rather disappointing, the characters move sharply but we don’t pay much attention.
The game has one big flaw, it is extraordinarily difficult which will quickly make players flee. If the game will quickly tire some players, the more experienced will want to finish it all taken and there I wish you good luck. The pantheon of players who have finished BattleToads in BattleManiacs is very, very limited (on console I’m talking about emulator not to finish it would be heresy). So the lifespan remains low because most of them will stop playing quickly, as for those who play on an emulator, they will finish the game quickly and will not play it again (but be careful, even with the backups, the game is hard)
This game has everything to please, if its high difficulty scares some then I’m sure they’ll have enjoyed the first few levels at least.
