Game Cube Pal | 2003
An amazing side scrolling beat em up from Capcom that brings the genre of the 2D
beat em up into the modern times of gaming. The game uses modern cell shaded
animation and other effects to create a stunningly unique looking game as well as
some great music.
You play the character of Joe. He is a fan of old Japanese-style superhero films
starring Captain Blue. One day whilst watching one of these films with his girlfriend
Silvia, the screen comes alive and she is kidnapped by one of the movies monsters.
Joe goes peruses and the game begins.
Joe battles through hordes of weird enemies and bosses to reach his girl and having
a few super hero powers comes in useful. Use slow motion and speed-up special
moves to shatter enemies.
You can get some goodies and play mini-games etc from the offical Viewitful Joe Websites.
Website at Capcom.
Capcom had a launch website for the UK version at http://www.viewtifuljoe.co.uk but it has since gone offline.
