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.
