You are a rude boy surfer dude named Greendog just out catching some surf. Then, a totally radical wave dumped you into the sand. Gnarly! Now you've got this totally excellent gold pendant hanging around your neck. Bummer, it won't come off! Babelicious Bambi, your bikini clad buddy, tells you that the pendant's there to stay until you find the lost Aztec treasure. What's more, dude, no more riding the waves until the treasure's found.
Ya, mon! In this one-player, side-scrolling action/adventure game, you're gonna have to search six Caribbean islands (each with two areas) to find the six pieces of the missing Aztec treasure. Cool, cool, cool graphics and a hint of a Rastafari beat in the tunes give this game an island feeling. Jolly, mon!
Everyting es copasetic with game play that's kind of hop 'n' bop, but Greendog doesn't do the bop. On the different islands, you'll have to swing from vines, hop across rivers, explore caverns, skateboard around dangerous obstacles, and scuba dive in an aquarium. To travel between islands, you fly a pedal-copter.
- Sometimes your path is blocked by a stone wall that's guarded by a monster- head statue. Toss your frisbee into the monster's mouth and the path will open. Watch for decoys.
Much respect, mon! All you've got to protect you is your flying disk. The pendant tells you where to go, but it also drives other living creatures bezerk-o when you go near 'em. On every island there's a hungry hoard of wacked-out creatures, like piranhas, crabs, starfish, and voodoo witch doctors.
But hey, dude, the gods are smiling on you. You'll uncover power-ups when you peg stone idols with your flying disk. For example, an Umbrella Cap gives you invincibility for a short time while you wear it. A Golden Frisbee spins into autopilot and automatically hits enemy characters. Even better, chow down on food power-ups, such as soft drinks and burgers, to restore your health.
- To beat the wall of rotating stone heads at the end of the first island, use your flying disc and fire rapidly at the head shooting at you. Dodge their fire and knock them off one by one.
Jah Be Wit You, Mon!
Although each radical island's gorgeous and offers a mondo number of different challenges, some stages in Greendog are easy and seem more fun and comical than challenging. Other stages (like the Aquarium) present some unique situations, such as scuba diving, that give Greendog a cool twist.
- In the Aquarium; if you get sucked up into a vacuum pile, you'll find yourself hack at the beginning of the stage. Wait until the vacuum turns off, then jump and shoot your flying disc at the same time. (Perfect timing is critical.) You can tell when the vacuum is switched off by watching the seaweed under the pipe.
What this light-hearted action/ adventure game has are superior graphics, cool character animation, original game play, and upbeat music that keeps you rockin'. Beginning and intermediate gamers will find enough challenge to keep them entertained. Advanced gamers will find the game's graphic and humor elements more entertaining than the obstacles. Check it out! You just might find yourself feelin' irie in a skankin' style!
