Bomberman 64 (Rom)

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Bomberman 64, known in Japan as Baku Bomberman (爆ボンバーマン, Baku Bonbāman?, lit. “Explosive Bomberman”), is a video game developed by Hudson Soft and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64. The game was released in Europe on November 27, 1997 and released in North America on December 1 of the same year. The game is rated K-A by the ESRB. Despite being released after Star Fox 64, it is incompatible with the Rumble Pak.

Bomberman 64 is the first 3-D game within the Bomberman series. It also implements a different single-player mode by incorporating action-adventure and platforming stages, instead of arenas in which enemies or other elements must be destroyed. The game has spawned two sequels on the N64: Bomberman Hero (1998) and Bomberman 64: The Second Attack (2000).

Body Harvest (Rom)

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Body Harvest is a video game for the Nintendo 64 video game console developed by DMA Design (later renamed Rockstar North after the highly successful Grand Theft Auto III). It was originally intended to be an N64 launch game but was delayed due to its original publisher, Nintendo’s issues with the game’s adult theme, and eventual dropping of the title, leaving DMA to find a new publisher. It was eventually published by Gremlin Graphics in October 1998. In Body Harvest, players assume the role of a genetically engineered soldier, Adam Drake, who must investigate and eliminate an alien attack force who possesses the ability to travel through time. Possessing this technology himself, Drake must battle in five areas over a 100-year period that covers World War I-era Greece, World War II-era Java, United States in the 1960s, Siberia in the 1990s, and the near future. The game is non-linear, players can go anywhere and do anything according to game’s boundaries.
