Game Profile

Take an unusual journey into a microscopic world in this unique action game from the genre-redefining Art Style series.

As a tiny tentacled organism, you have one simple purpose: to grow. Swim through the primordial ooze, using your tentacles to absorb other organisms whose colour matches that of each tentacle. Match the colours correctly and the tentacle grows; mismatch and you lose a life – and some of your tentacle.

Control your organism by simply spinning your way through the ooze; however keep a close eye on your flailing tentacles to avoid absorbing the wrong colour of organisms around you.

This is one that I am definitely interested in picking up. I really enjoyed the first three Art Style games but there were a few things I think that could have made them better. I mean, Rotohex especially just was so empty. They could have at least added online scoreboards.

It's coming on June 21, 2010. I thought it would be out a week or two ago, but at least Nintendo got Rotozoa in there on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere.
