Wetrix, 11.99 n64gm176 - Developed by Zed Two Game Design Studio and Published by Ocean Software Ltd., "Wetrix" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System in June 12, 1998. This is another solid effort by Ocean featuring a hiqh quality 3D puzzle game that stands tall against its N64 competition, Tetrisphere and Bust-A-Move. If you like those two games, you'll love Wetrix. Wetrix is a puzzle game that goes for a unique premise. In an age when software companies would rather give us retreads of old scenarios or rewrite and reboot safe rather than develop original games, it is so refreshing to see offerings like Wetrix come upon the scene. The objective is to move and stack falling pieces to form walls and enclosures to trap rain water droplets of all shapes and sizes beneath a 3D surface. They begin dropping on your playing field and you have to be sharp to build barriers on the arena to stop the water from leaking out. Build the walls as high as possible to catch the falling water. Of course, if you don't build your wall dams just so, you'll fracture the whole thing and cause chaos that will reverberate and leave you in deep trouble. Too much and you may start an earthquake. Wetrix features ice blocks falling to freeze the water, Bombs dropping leaving holes in walls, and fireballs vaporizing the water. As far as graphics goes, I can tell you that Nintendo 64's Wetrix offers some of the best graphics that any home gaming system to that point had ever seen. They are very impressive, with the fluid dynamics and realism second to none, and even the waves on the menu system are eye popping. There are different impressive backgrounds for each of the levels in each mode. The gameplay and controls are solid, and the audio and music are quite spectacular. You can play Wetrix in practice mode (outstanding music), play it alone or play in multiplayer mode against your friend. I don't normally like puzzle games, but Wetrix for the Nintendo 64 system offers hours of enjoyable game play that is not frustrating, but challenging. Once you get the grasp of how the game is played, Wetrix is not only a gem, but a fabulously entertaining game that is hard to resist. The more you play, the better you become at Wetrix and the more you'll want to play. This might just be one of the most addictive puzzle game in years. Excellent choice for whole family participation. On another system this game is called "Wetrix+" Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included.
