So I've been playing a bit of Mole Mania on the GameBoy recently.
The cart I have is pretty battered but I love it all the same.
As far as GameBoy carts this can be one of the trickier ones to get hold of nowadays. Probably down to the fact that its a Miyamoto game and it increases its popularity. Released in 1996 ('97 over here) too, so pretty late run indeed !!
Whats handy is that its available on the 3DS eShop for a few quid, so is accessible to all, as it should be.
Anyway, its a cool little screen puzzle game.
You are tasked with rescuing your family of wife Mole and baby moles, from a very Bluto looking nasty dude called Jinbe. Swine.
The game is a series of maze style puzzles, where you have to navigate from one end of teh maze to the exit.
Along the way are a series of obstacles, baddies and items.
The cool bit is that Muddy (you) can dive down into the soil and move about in a separate plain, to reemerge above ground, ideally circumnavigating the obstacles above and getting to the exit.
It's very satisfying and compelling to move about and try things out.
It's a perfect commute game, I can just bust it out and quickly do a few map before I need to exit the train. It also saves per screen, so there's no real progress lost issue.
Well worth a look if you want something a little less up-tempo, cute and satisfying puzzle game.
