I thought it was a new storyline but it isnt. From counting down the best consoles ever to revealing the best use of fish heads in a videogame, this is where it's at. I think that this game is fun and can get addicting although the the camera and bad controlling makes the gae less enjoyable and annoying. Plus, I spend more time repositioning the camera than actually playing the stupid game. Some idoits may tell you it is just the same as the first, but being a die-hard Ape Escape fan I know its different. Players also control vehicles throughout the game, including a rubber raft, which allows travel over water, and the water net, which assists in traversing underwater. The first game released on the PlayStation 1 system to require an analogue controller, it mixes a fun combination of platforming and an intuitive control scheme to make a real gem.
The powerful device, which can increase a human's intelligence, has a disastrous effect on Specter, transforming him from a sweet, mischievous monkey to a power-hungry monster who has his heart set on ruling the world. The analog stick control is awful. Specter and the monkeys escape to a nearby laboratory where the Professor, who created the Peak Point Helmet, is working on his latest invention, a time machine. The adventure begins when the player takes on the role of a brave young boy named Spike, a friend of the Professor. I just got it and I love it! When a trouble-making monkey named Specter gets hold of the Professor's Peak Point Helmet, chaos ensues. They added a whole new level, redid other levels, updated the audio and visual, added new minigames duh , changed monkey descriptions, and replaced most Specter Coins. The music is boring and never changes.
Taking control of the laboratory, Specter and the other monkeys use the time machine to escape into the past. The game might be ok if the controls were not so terrible. Its arrival on the PlayStation marked an upswing of innovation and finely-tuned game mechanics. Gameplay Players traverse several different environments to advance through the game. Every week we'll feature the top ten games, characters, fashion statements or whatever else we can think of that in some way relates to gaming and its history.
I just got it and I love it! Catching and walking is fine in my mind. Players use various gadgets to pursue and capture the apes, such as the Stun Club, used as an offensive measure against enemies, and the Time Net, used to capture apes and transport them to present day. Spike's mission is to pursue Specter and the monkeys who have fled to the past in order to prevent them from changing history and taking over the world. The graphics are average and the sound really fits into the game but you find you put it on mute after a while as it gets annoying. For most of the game, players control Spike a boy tasked with pursuing and capturing the apes across time, preventing them from rewriting history. The inverted slingshot controls etc drive me nuts as well as the terrible camera control. Join Specter and his friends at the Ape Escape Academy and see if you can be the best monkey you can be! Currently one of only two platformers on the system, Ape Escape: On the Loose brings you back to the original PlayStation game, only updated with a series of extras.
© 2005 Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Wait for this one to hit the bargain bin -which should be pretty soon. But that was then, at a time when 3D platformers suffered from design malaise. Here are the official details from the publisher on Ape Escape. The power of the helmet enabled Specter to break free from his cage while also allowing him to free hundreds of other monkeys at the zoo.
Ape Escape is a registered trademark of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. This new version features several changes since the initial release. Some idoits may tell you it is just the same as the first, but being a die-hard Ape Escape fan This is awesome. Specter has failed over and over again in his attempts at taking over the world, all because of a few bungling monkeys. .
Loads of replayability and a lots of hours of gameplay, this is certain to be as memorable to new players as it is those who cherish it dearly. The new adventure begins when Specter—a monkey-turned-monster—and his army of monkeys travel back in time to change history and take over the world. To rectify his problem, he decides to form the Ape Escape® Academy, where he, serving as principal, will train monkeys to follow his will. I thought it was a new storyline but it isnt. . . .
