Station Silicon Valley ©
the distant future two space marines find themselves embarking on a
journey through space. There space craft is piloted by Dangerous Dan
and Evo the robot, they are in search of a lost mad made space
station which was built more than 1000 years ago by earth and shortly
after it's launch it vanished into thin air. It has since been
spotted and is heading straight for earth, and if it hits it will be
the end of Earth as we know it unless Dan and Evo can stop it.
opening intro to the game is fabulous, it showcases Dan & Evo
fighting over what music will be played during there trip through the
galaxy. There ship then smashes into an asteroid and falls hopelessly
into the lost Silicon Valley, then they crush a dog named Roger who
is on the Space station and is about to show his love for Flossy the sheep.
in turn die's and Evo presses his eject button which catapults him
into the ceiling of the space station and smashes him to pieces
nothing but his microchip core staying in tact, the chip makes it's
way over to the corps of Roger the dog which brings him back to life.
here is where the game begins.
graphics have been done in a cartoon style to suit the game properly,
they are very bright, colourful & humorous. The levels look
stunning they are also very bright and a lot of effects have been
used such as the smoke effect which really makes it hard seeing past
certain parts. Overall the graphics are equal to that of Banjo &
Kazooie, and it is definitely some of the best eye candy you could
see in a game.
sound in this game was great, I especially liked the foreign tongue
that everyone spoke in the intro and through out the game aswell. An
interesting thing in this game regarding the music was that there are
speakers setup around the space station that you can see when you get
closer to the the music gets louder and if you are far away from them
you can hardle hear any music.
the gameplay which is where this game really shines and stands out
against the rest of the games in it's genre or any genre. You are the
microchip core of the robot Evo and you have the ability to takeover
the bodies of the dead and make them came back to life. The earlier
levels in this game are quite easy and can be finished in a number of
minutes, yet others like the level where you take on the role of a
rat who must make his way through sewers and activate switches to
open doors. There are tons of levels to play on so you won't get
bored anytime soon and the game isn't a push over, so there is lots
of fun to be had with Space Station Silicon Valley.
Space Station Silicon Valley is probably the most unique game on any
platform and the makers deserve a lot of credit for taking a gamble
on the likes of a game as unique as this. It's the type of game that
you will either hate or love, and quite frankly I loved it.
Adventure, and one definitely giving a look if you don't mind the
