A Look at Roogoo Twisted Towers Multiplayer

SouthPeak reveals an in-depth look at the multiplayer modes featured in their upcoming Roogoo game for Nintendo Wii

For many Wii gamers, most of the fun associated with the system comes from getting a group of friends together for some multiplayer, party-style action. For those gamers, SouthPeak and developer Spidermonk Entertainment have revealed the multiplayer modes to be featured in their upcoming Wii title, Roogoo Twisted Towers. The modes are described in detail below. Roogoo Twisted Towers is set to release exclusively on the Wii this June.

Split-Screen Race

In this mode, two players race to see who can finish the stage in the shortest amount of time. Obstacles such as rotating platforms, butterfly platforms and Meemoos will attempt to slow the player and knock off his or her meteors, and each level is more challenging than the last, with faster falling meteors, more obstacles and larger stages. Along with the obstacles in the stage, players will gain power ups to use against one another as the match progresses, some power-ups include: summoning Meemoos, covering your opponent’s screens in frost and placing parachutes on their falling meteors, slowing them down considerably. The winner is declared when one player reaches the bottom platform and clears all of their meteors or, if the other player fills up their lose meter.

Party Mode

This mode supports up to four players in total. Players work together to complete a stage and continue on to the next. During a stage, players have the ability to catch butterflies and throw hammers; the difference here is that players will randomly be selected to control different platforms during a stage, which will be indicated by their profile picture next to the active platform. Though this mode is all about teamwork, everyone’s scores are separate, and at the end of each stage all players’ scores will be tallied and the one with the highest score will be “crowned” the winner of that stage.

Story Mode

You are able to play with up to four players in Story Mode. Only the first player will be able to rotate platforms while the others are able to catch butterflies and throw hammers. During skydiving levels, all players control their own characters as they try to collect as many meteors as the can while avoiding Meemoos and other obstacles as they make their descent.

Roogoo Attack! Multiplayer

Roogoo Attack! features a single multiplayer mode - the Split-Screen Race. The basic gameplay follows the same format as Roogoo Twisted Towers, but with some key differences. Roogoo Attack! can accommodate up to four players. Also, players don’t gain power-ups by making combinations and completing their meteors, but instead by collecting electric blue stars. The blue stars will give players special attack abilities that they can use to foil their adversaries. Also, like in Roogoo Twisted Towers players still win by reaching the bottom platform and clearing all their meteors, but now in Roogoo Attack! Multiplayer they no longer have to worry about losing too many meteors. The lose meter has been removed and players can put their full concentration into using speed to win the match.

Wii/DS Unlockables

Unlockables reward players with extra bonus stages for beating all levels in a world successfully in both Roogoo Twisted Towers and Roogoo Attack! The stages can be unlocked when using the local wi-fi connectivity function between both the Wii and DS version of Roogoo. Roogoo Twisted Towers has 10 unlockable stages while Roogoo Attack! contains 28 unlockables.
