Octomania screens

Already available since this summer in Japan, the puzzle game Octomania is confirmed for March 30, 2008 in the United States for the Nintendo Wii. An important fact is that this production allows you to challenge friends online while players try to align colorful heads to eliminate them from their grid (and fill up the adversary's one) with the help of the Wiimote pointer. Two coop modes are also available - story and survival. No european release date has been confirmed.

Isn't that a bit much? It looks like it could easily be a Wiiware game... Or a really bad XBLA/PSN game ($4 max).

Looks like a neo geo game. Normally that wouldn't be a bad thing, at least not if it WAS a neo geo game.

It could have been a SNES game by the looks of it, a little too colorful for Genesis/Megadrive. The art isn't so great, the character in that forth shot looks really poorly done. Do the background characters at least animate some? If it was a NeoGeo game it'd have that at least.

Yeah, not exactly the highest quality or original game, is it?

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (12 Hours ago)
