You're in the charge of a giant machinegun weilding steel mammoth What else do you need to know?
When I first looked at the title I thought, "Sounds like mammoth. I hope this game is about a steel mammoth." I didn't get my hopes up, though, as abstract titles aren't unheard of. Fortunately, I was elated when I loaded it up and the first thing I saw was a giant steel mammoth. With machine guns. Oh, yes.
At first, its hard to control the guns, until it becomes clear you don't control the mammoth. It just keeps going. Then controlling the guns becomes easier and the game reveals itself as being dull. The first few hundred points are really a gimmie. They're not hard to avoid getting, which makes the difficult sections just a bit after the boring bit.
That's sad, because the game clearly has potential. With a few more enemies and some actually changing landscapes, this would be nothing short of a hit. Unfortunately, it seems to have been released a little too early. It plays well, don't get me wrong, it just doesn't live up to other giant destruction titles like Crush, but it is a neat game of its own. Not too violent or difficult for children.
