Downstream Panic!

Playstation Illustrated
13 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Downstream Panic! is more than just a variation on Loco Roco or other recent games like Patapon that feature simplified, graphic elements and gameplay. There are common themes such as the jaunty music and the visual style, but games like this are more about reacting against super-realism than...

  • Excerpt: Apparently a tropical storm has sucked out the entire collection of fish from the oceans and it is up to the player to safely get them back, avoiding sharks and other dangerous objects… It takes just a few minutes to figure out what you are supposed to be doing, then it clicks in this strategy game.

  • Summary: Based on nothing more than screenshots and a short description you may think that Atari's newest portable puzzle game, Downstream Panic, is nothing more than a LocoRoco rip-off. After all, this is an adorable 2D game that requires you to guide a bunch of happy-go-lucky characters to safety.

  • Excerpt: being pleasantly surprised by games, and that goes double for games that one would normally discount as being mediocre based just one concept alone. There were ample times where could have faltered or broke out of the simple rule set that it created to try to do more, but instead it sticks rigidly...

  • Excerpt: Puzzle games and handhelds. Like peanut butter and jelly, the two have always gone hand in hand with one another. Thanks to the overwhelming success of Tetris and the GameBoy, puzzle games always seem better suited on handhelds, as opposed to consoles.

  • Conclusion: As an overall game, "Downstream" is a fun and addictive experience. It is challenging with a lot to offer and pretty good replay value. With eighty stages out of the box, that's a lot of gaming. The developer advertises at least ten hours.

  • Excerpt: Są gry, które oferują najpiękniejszą grafikę i muzykę, jaka tylko może się przyśnić. Są też i takie, które nie prezentują wielkich osiągnięć audiowizualnych, jednak fabuła i przedstawiony w nich świat powodują, że nie jesteśmy w stanie się od nich oderwać.
