USA VC Update: StarTropics II
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
What better way than to close the year with another Nintendo-developed game? Sure, it's just one game yet again, but at least it's another good one.
Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II is, naturally, the sequel to StarTropics. As you might have guessed from the title, the villain from the first game, Zoda, is back - He is trying to steal the Tetrads, ancient puzzle blocks (Yes, they're Tetris blocks), which are rumoured to hold an ancient power. The catch is that these blocks are scattered throughout various time periods - Mike will have to travel through time to stop Zoda this time. Along the way he'll meet people like Sherlock Holmes and Leonardo da Vinci, who will aid him in his quest. The control in the dungeon sections is also much improved, for those who hated it in the original - You can now walk in 8 directions instead of 4, and you can jump anytime you want!
