Too challenging for some
Chu Chu Rocket is a puzzle game with a deviously simple concept - guide the mice to the rocket using arrow panels but keep the cats away.
The presentation is severely disappointing, with some simple animations and sounds that don't do the GBA much justice. Gameplay is another matter.
Puzzle mode is the best. Place a set number of panels and then run it to guide all mice to rockets without error. Very addictive and fun.
Next is Challenge mode. It features different challenges such as Cat Soccer. Each gives you 30 seconds only. Fantastic and very difficult.
Now the battle and team battle modes. Compete for the most mice. Special mice when collected cause a random effect to occur. Frantic action as you fight for the lead.
Finally the options to create your own stages and characters to replace the mice and cats is excellent. Also the changable control system is perfect.
Some people may find the difficulty too much, especially on the later levels as you try to frantically race around guiding up to 100 mice to the rockets.
Overall a very addictive puzzle game that would be an excellent addition to your collection.
