January 24, 2007 - Nintendo's DS has certainly played home to quite a load of unique, 'left-field' games, and Grasshopper Manufacture's Contact - one which fits into this category - is set to hit select Australian stores from tomorrow, January 25.
The game's a conceptual RPG that'll see you take control of Terry, who's become caught up with a stranded Professor from outer space, while you as the player are included in the adventure to free him from his plight as well. Two graphical styles, each on their own screen, blend to create a deep adventure, with a real-time combat system and a wealth of items and abilities to discover. And, there's Wi-Fi connectivity to top it all off!
We'll have our full verdict once we've spent enough time with the game, but if you're looking for an unusual production that's only possible on Nintendo DS, and if you appreciated Grasshopper's work on Killer 7, then this is definitely something worth checking out.
More details can be found at the game's website, here, and you can look out for it at EB Games, JB Hi-Fi and some independent stores for only $49.95.
