'Roogoo' (NDS/Wii) Multiplayer Details - New Screens

by Rainier on April 29, 2009 @ 4:08 p.m. PDT

Roogoo tasks players with guiding meteors in the form of shaped blocks though a series of rotating disks as a means of saving the planet Roo and the entire Roogoo race. If aligned correctly, the disks allow the blocks to reach the ground and scores are awarded. However, it’s not as easy as simply rotating the disks to form a neat tunnel. Various obstacles and enemies will impede the blocks’ transit and with the flow of meteor blocks steadily increasing as the game progresses, players will have to think on their feet to save the Roogoo and rack up seriously high scores.

Save Planet Roo and all its citizens from the evil Meemos by guiding differently shaped meteors that sustain and feed life to the planet. Rotate floating land masses to allow meteors to pass through safely. Use quick reflexes to navigate obstacles and complete the levels.

Roogoo Twisted Towers will bring the most content ever to a Roogoo title with new elements like puzzle boss fights, living environments, and full-game co-op play. Roogoo Twisted tower offers several new advanced gameplay mechanics and modifications. One example is levels in Roogoo Twisted Towers are played not only on a vertical axis but the horizontal axis as well. With the unique features of the Nintendo Wii, Roogoo Twisted Towers will be more out of control than ever!

Roogoo Twisted Towers brings intense and fast-paced action in over 100 unique levels such as the belly of a whale, under the ocean, and sky shape diving. Easy to pick up and play and challenging to master with an appealing artistic style, Roogoo has something for both casual and hardcore gamers. Roogoo Twisted Towers is ideal for both single player adventure modes with co-op play and additional four player party play modes.

Roogoo Twisted Towers Multiplayer

Split-Screen Race

In this mode, two players race to see who can finish the stage in the shortest amount of time. Obstacles such as rotating platforms, butterfly platforms and Meemoos will attempt to slow the player and knock off his or her meteors, and each level is more challenging than the last, with faster falling meteors, more obstacles and larger stages. Along with the obstacles in the stage, players will gain power ups to use against one another as the match progresses, some power-ups include: summoning Meemoos, covering your opponent’s screens in frost and placing parachutes on their falling meteors, slowing them down considerably. The winner is declared when one player reaches the bottom platform and clears all of their meteors or, if the other player fills up their lose meter.

Party Mode

This mode supports up to four players in total. Players work together to complete a stage and continue on to the next. During a stage, players have the ability to catch butterflies and throw hammers; the difference here is that players will randomly be selected to control different platforms during a stage, which will be indicated by their profile picture next to the active platform. Though this mode is all about teamwork, everyone’s scores are separate, and at the end of each stage all players’ scores will be tallied and the one with the highest score will be “crowned” the winner of that stage.

Story Mode

You are able to play with up to four players in Story Mode. Only the first player will be able to rotate platforms while the others are able to catch butterflies and throw hammers. During skydiving levels, all players control their own characters as they try to collect as many meteors as the can while avoiding Meemoos and other obstacles as they make their descent.

Roogoo brings intense and fast-paced action in over 100 unique levels such as Meemoo City, Roolands, and sky shape diving. Easy to pick up and play yet challenging to master with an appealing artistic style, Roogoo has something for both casual and hardcore gamers. Roogoo Tower Attack is ideal for multiplayer and head to head competitive challenges.

Roogoo Attack! Multiplayer

Roogoo Attack! features a single multiplayer mode - the Split-Screen Race. The basic gameplay follows the same format as Roogoo Twisted Towers, but with some key differences. Roogoo Attack! can accommodate up to four players. Also, players don’t gain power-ups by making combinations and completing their meteors, but instead by collecting electric blue stars. The blue stars will give players special attack abilities that they can use to foil their adversaries. Also, like in Roogoo Twisted Towers players still win by reaching the bottom platform and clearing all their meteors, but now in Roogoo Attack! Multiplayer they no longer have to worry about losing too many meteors. The lose meter has been removed and players can put their full concentration into using speed to win the match.

NDS Features:

  • World map overview for showing progress of levels and difficulty
  • Both Single and Multi-card play featuring 6+ different multiplayer attacks such as Meemoo Attack, Anvil Attack and Meteor Shape Color Attack.
  • Charming art style and fresh, innovative gameplay
  • Use your left and right bumper to guide the shapes through platforms
  • Butterflies, bats, and other flying creatures take your shapes backwards in reverse gameplay
  • Entertaining short story segments
  • Connect the DS version to Roogoo Twisted Towers for Wii to unlock additional levels in all 10 environments on both DS and Wii versions.
