Conclusion: With some friends, this game could be fun for a while, particularly if you are a fan of board games. Solo, it’s a great way to spend 15 minutes, then it will grow stale. That is, if you can convince others to play. While it is fun to play a German board game that is new to most people, there just isn’t a lot of substance to Oxygen’s title to make it a lasting investment.
Pros: Interesting new board game, Great stylus control, Functional multiplayer play
Cons: Bad menus and instruction, Overall weak graphics, Total lack of sound, Lack of content for a full game
Excerpt: is instead a modest title based upon some German board game I’m not even going to try and spell. It presents players with a grid full of pits and challenges them to get three of their four hedgehogs to the other side before any of the other teams can. Along the way, you need to try and push your opposition’s hedgehogs out of the way (and, ideally, into pits) while trying to navigate the safest route through the obstacles and opposition.
Excerpt: Tous les ans, quand le printemps apporte ses premiers rayons de soleil, les cadavres de hérissons viennent fleurir les abords de nos routes. Mais pourquoi ces petites bestioles à pics viennent-elles finir leurs jours sous les roues du premier semi-remorque venu ? Cette grande énigme est sur le point d'être résolue grâce à Hurry Up Hedgehog ! sur Nintendo DS.
