Xexyz Review Rewind

The space action adventure you couldn't pronounce -- until now!

Every now and then, game developers like to mix it up a little and create a game that pitches together several genres into one, like Xexyz (pronounced “zeks-zees”) on the NES -- a rarely seen attempt to blend elements from the platformer and shoot 'em up genres, with just a pinch of RPG/adventure thrown in there for extra measure.  Released by Hudson Soft in 1990, Xexyz proved that fusing three genres together can work quite well.

Tour de 64: Bomberman Hero

What does it take to be a hero? An endless supply of bombs pulled out of thin air, oddly enough.

As if Hudson finally came to a decision, Bomberman Hero is a full-blown platformer featuring the iconic white bomb dispenser. Playing the role of intrepid hero, Bomberman must blast, bomb, and explode his way across five planets with a dozen or more stages each, to rescue Princess Millian from the evil clutches of Bagular and his minions. It lacks the traditional multiplayer battle mode found in most Bomberman titles, which will likely disappoint many fans of the series.

Tour de 64: Bomberman 64: The Second Attack!

The second time is a charm.

Continuing the genre confusion of the first Bomberman Nintendo 64 title, Bomberman 64: The Second Attack! is also an action game with puzzle elements. This time around, pieces of the classic Bomberman formula are combined with the new conventions of the first 3D title.

Tour de 64: Bomberman 64

Cue obligatory "It's a blast!" pun.

Though sometimes listed as a platformer, Bomberman 64 is essentially an action/puzzle game. For those unaware, Bomberman is a long-running series which got its start on the NES. It stars little pudgy dudes with oversized round heads, who have an unlimited amount of bombs which they pull from... somewhere. Bomberman 64 brings the series into the third dimension, and features a single player adventure with some wonky puzzle elements.
