This guy seems to be in charge of turning the big key.
They don't seem too happy about them though. Or maybe the girl's just wondering if that's an actual diamond, and the guy's thinking 'Where the hell's my gemstone? How the hell am I gonna get any cash for this crap?'
There's not many attacks available. In fact there's only really two that I can find. Hit them, and hit them slightly harder. The trick seems to be to get in the right place to hit them, then jump somewhere else before they can hit back.
When enemies are killed they turn into animals, in this case dogs. Then I can collect the animals for bonus points! I'm not sure if it's a Sonic the Hedgehog thing where they started off as animals and were transformed, or if this stick just turns things into animals.
First boss fight... it's ON!
Seems it's up to me to find the key then.
It's actually really helpful to have the shadows or reflections, because they help me see where I need to stand to be in line with the enemies. If I'm not lined up right, my attacks aren't going to connect.
Time to move on to level 3.
Okay, what the hell happened to this game? I mean it was pretty weird to start with, but it was regular video game weird. Not... this.
I'm not even gonna comment on that background. I'm not even seeing it.
I think these enemies are awesome by the way. Not so much the way they keep hitting me, but their animation and design. There's another version of them that pulls out a straw and starts sucking up water from the cup that makes up their torso, so they can spit it at me.
Some nice music on this level I reckon. It goes well with the creepy monochrome background of the frozen town.
I'm just going to go. I'm going to take the game's advice, hit a couple of evil flowers, and I'm going to go.
This guy's actually going down pretty easily. Well, easier than I was expecting anyway. I might actually have a chance of winning this.
And that was Pu-Li-Ru-La. A very simple game, with awesomely weird artwork. To be honest I think I enjoyed watching it more than actually playing it, though it probably gets better with a second player on screen.
Well I didn't think it was much of a game, but I have to give it a gold star anyway. It's just so... unique, and imaginative and well made. I can't imagine I won't want to play this again at some point.
