I had poor expectations coming into this game. For starters, it’s Beast Wars, man. They aren’t really Transformers… All kids get today are crappy knock-off like Beast Wars… sigh… And the other thing that gave me bad expectations was it being a fighter for Gameboy. How many moves can you do with two frickin’ buttons? And how good can the animations be?
Well, I was pleasantly surprised. The sprite graphics aren’t terrible, and though the moves are mostly random button mashing, they do look neat when you do them. The action is pretty fluid, and the super-duper fancy lala moves you perform when you’re charge meter is full are actually kinda impressive.
This game just might be worth a play. Even if it’s Beast Wars…
Well, let’s see, this patch hasn’t been updated in almost two and half years, and it’s been a year and a half since Six Feet Under updated his site. That, and I haven’t seen him around in at least a few months. It’s probably safe to deem this flatlined.
The patch only translates some of the menus. None of the pre- or post-fight banter is done, and neither is the intro. Or even the main menu. But the last thing isn’t really Six Feet Under’s fault. The main menu was compressed. However, he was able to translate it in a NO savestate (because the menu is uncompressed in RAM) which he enclosed with the patch. Of course, you need a registered version of NO to run Gameboy Color games, so if you don’t have a registered version of NO$, you’re outta luck there.
