(Wii Virtual Console / Neo Geo)

Blue's Journey (Wii Virtual Console / Neo Geo)

Game Profile

The planet of Raguy has been invaded by the Daruma tribe, changing it from a beautiful and peaceful place into one filled with pollution. Released in 1991, this horizontally scrolling action game tells the story of an insectarian named Blue and his quest to save the planet and keep its inhabitants from being turned into slaves. Use Blue's main weapon, a leaf, to flip enemies onto their heads and then throw them at other members of the Daruma tribe, defeating anyone in your way.

Additional weapons, such as bombs and boomerangs, are also available, or you can collect flowers to purchase other special items like honey or swim fins. Blue also has the special ability to change his size at will - if he's too big to fit in a particular area, then shrink him. The bright, colorful graphics, combined with lots of hidden items to find, ensure an enjoyable experience with plenty of replay value. Help Blue muster all his strength and eliminate the Daruma tribe.

The planet of Raguy has been invaded by the Daruma tribe, changing it from a beautiful and peaceful place into one filled with pollution.

The Neo Geo is known primarily for its fighting games and the occasional shoot-em-up, so it’s good to come across a cutesy platformer on the system. If you are familiar with Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES you’ll have an idea of what to expect from...

Never heard of this one before. Looks to be an interesting traditional platformer.

A platform game from Alpha Denshi, a former 3rd party company (now part of SNK Playmore) responsible for World Heroes and the classic Magician Lord. This must be interesting...

2 stars is way too harsh. Easily deserves a 3 (mind you, if the stars went up to 10, I'd only give it 6, if you see what I mean).
Worth it for a rainy afternoon. Much easier then Magician Lord, mind.

I really do not understand all the bad ratings for this game. It's a solid platformer with responsive controls, excellent graphics, and a decent difficulty curve, lots of hidden extras, multiple paths etc etc etc. The music is cute but original and it fits the game perfectly.

I can see why people would think that a 2 star review is a bit harsh but personally, I feel like I got pretty burned on this VC purchase. In fact, it was because of this game that I sought out a place that reviewed VC games before I purchased another. At least I can thank Blue's Weak Ass Journey for leading me to this site...
