Chupa Chups and the sidescroller platformer genre!
McDonalds had done it
, some other companies had done, so why not Chupa Chups? After all they had all the right, given that they had had their brush with the world of art (and some would argue games can be art, as well). After all none other than Salvador Dali had designed one of their iconic lollipop wrappers, so, making a game, while at the same advertising their gobstopper goodies wasn't that much of a jump. Well, thankfully, the game itself is not half bad. It's a bit of a generic kind of beast, seemingly paying tribute to oldies of left to right exploration such as Metroid
, and most certainly some others. Thus, it is a fun, heavy on platforming and less so on the shooting, kind of unimaginative in terms of diversity, but fun. If you can enjoy a relaxed but aggressive at the same time sidescroller (aggressive in that it can be quite fast at times) Zool can play that role exceptionally well. So give it a try, it's worth it. Do it for Chupa Chups, and for the world of lollipops, brand or no brand, heheh!
