Using their individual skills, guide the characters of South Park out of each level.
When I first played this game, a few years back, I was struck by the graphics (plain) and the gameplay (complex) but thought there was enough for a review. I filed it away and forgot about it. Then, recently, remembered it again - all of a sudden I realised that its not plain or complex. In actual fact, its a very well designed game.
OK, so the graphics are still plain. Nobody can deny that. But the thing is, the game is deviously clever. You control Stan, Kenny and Cartman individually. They can be selected with the 1, 2 and 3 keys. In turn, manoeuvre them around the levels and use their individual skills to reach the goal.
The skills are thus: Stan has a gun, it can switch otherwise unreachable switches and can also dispatch enemies. He also has a bionic arm. This can also reach otherwise unreachable areas and, furthermore, can swing across gaps, etc. with it. Cartman has a shield which - obviously - works as a shield. When holding it above his head, he can glide with it. Finally, Kenny is the only character with the ability to jump.
Using these abilities in turn and together (if the two boys are behind Cartman, his shield protects them all) the cleverly designed levels will be at your mercy. This game is very smart and will require lateral thinking combined with trial-and-error, and despite its plain graphics, there is enough substance here to make it worthy.
