Excerpt: Pet Alien is based on the short-lived Cartoon Network series of the same name. In the TV series, Tommy is a 12 year old boy who lives in a lighthouse who befriends five odd aliens who crash land on his lighthouse. However, the game takes the action away from the setting in the cartoon series and moves it into space, which may, ahem, alienate fans of the show.
Excerpt: Ã¢â‚¬Å“5 levels, 5 bossesÃ¢â‚¬Â� ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what it says on the back of the box. Its more like 80 levels and 5 bosses. Each level is a simple puzzle that you need solve and the boss fights are like a puzzle themselves. After you fight each boss, you can unlock a mini-game. The game is meant for young children, so the puzzles arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t that challenging to an adult gamer. Throughout the game, you play as one of 5 aliens.
Excerpt: Aliens have long been a theme in video games, although usually as the bad guys. As an exception to that norm, Game Factory Pet Alien, a puzzle game obviously aimed at children. I am not familiar with any movie or TV show by that name, but then again, as a twenty-four year old, I don’t follow shows for young kids that much.
Excerpt: Cartoon Network fans kender måske allerede de fem rum-kæledyr Dinko, Gumpers, Scruffy, Swanky og Flip og deres menneskeven Tommy fra tv-serien (nix beklager – Red.), som på dansk hed Rum-nørderne – inden serien blev droppet pga. lave seertal. Ikke umiddelbart et oplagt grundlag for at udgive et spil, men det er alligevel, hvad The Game Factory har valgt at gøre.
Summary: Herhjemme kendes de nok bedst af de helt unge TV-seere som Rumnørderne. Ikke desto mindre får spillere i alle højder nu mulighed for at fornøje sig med dem på Nintendo DS under navnet Pet Alien.
