Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi: The Genie & the Amp (DS)

This game was super cheap at Play Asia, so I bundled it in with another game. I love Puffy (the band), but am not keen on Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi (the cartoon), so it was a bit of a split decision to buy the game. Cheapness won out, though. As usual.

And, well. It’s very odd. Imagine crossing Streets of Rage with Guitar Hero. And then coating it in Viewtiful Joe and Alien Hominid stuff.

It’s a side scrolling beat ’em up, where you fight bizarre baddies through different periods in time (including The Day Before Yesterday) by strumming guitar strings on the DS touch screen. Strum differently for combos and stuff. There are UFO catcher machines for unlockables and collectables, and buy stuff from vending machines. Yes, it is strange.

I completed the first level and am now halfway through the second. It’s a bit repetitive, but fun at the moment.
