Game Journal April 22a: Kim Possible 2: The Demise of Dr. Drakken

So far this is the only Kim Possible game for the GBA in Europe, since they skipped the first one and the 3rd one hasn't been released yet...

Since I played a KP for the Nintendo DS yesterday, I'll compare them when I think it's noteworthy...

The first I noticed is this 2D game looked smoother and stylized that the 3D DS one, the gameplay is mostly the same even controlwise...

The levels and enemies are more varied, are larger and have more to explore, mainly because you can search the level for some collectible cards, which images of Kim Possible characters, not my cup of tea, but a good reason to extend the overall game length...

The game is much better than the DS sequel, it's more challenging, much more than I expected, but still quite beatable...

The moves are the same as the DS (OK, since the DS was released later, it's the other way around, but you know what I mean), except you don't start with all the moves and gadgets, at the beginning you have no acrobatics moves, and only you grappling gun, and gum lipstick, but as you advance you can do cartwheels, wall jumps, and you get hot sauce, a mirror to reflect lasers, and a stealth suit, too bad you don't really need them that much in the game...

Rufus is in the game too, with the same minigame than the DS one, except he looks MUCH better here!

It actually has some replay value if you want to collect all the cars, but you don't get anything if you get them all...

This game is good enough to actually satisfy a non-KP fan!

Game Journal April 22b: Rub Rabbits!

This is one of those games that make you say "what the hell did you put in my brownies?", it's just... INSANE!

This is a zany mini game madness game, although I guess you could call it a date sim since the hero is trying to seduce a girl? I'm not sure since we don't get those jap date sims over here...

This is a touchscreen only game, although you have to use the mic at some times, but you don't use the buttons at all!

The game has improved since it's prequel Project Rub, the game is still challenging, but never as frustrating as the original, instead of having to play the game on an impossibly hard level to unlock everything, you now gain points by beating each level, and they get unlock as you reach a certain number of points...

Guess what you unlock? COSTUMES! Geez! Do all games come with a dress up mode or what? Oh well, it's doesn't matter...

The mini games you play are not random, they do have to do with the plot, but since it's a zany plot, it's hard to tell...

Since a game about a couple falling in love, there are many "romance" mini games, which are a bit of cheesecake, like rubbing alcohol on a wound on the girls leg, and many other games with rubbing...

And the girls moans a little, so if you play the outside, people might think it's a "naughty" game, but since you spend the whole game rubbing, touching and blowing, you shouldn't play the game in public... The game actually warns you to not play this game in public...

It also has some replay value, because even if you don't feel like unlocking the costumes, you have an alternate storyline...

The ending was rather disturbing...

Speaking of disturbing, one of the features is called "Making Babies"....

The defining moment of the game for me was when I played this seemingly impossible minigame and discoverd a trick to make it much easier, I went from wanting to throw the game away to utter bliss! XD
