Reviewed by Capt'n N Plok was made in 1993 by Tradewest. It was a claymation game, starring a little orange and red guy. Who throws his body parts at enemies, and wears special suits. He travels through at least 4 worlds in the land of polyesta. I remember seeing this game advertised on a Burger King quite a few years ago, so I got it. The story goes that Plok loves flags. One day, he wakes up to find his special orange flag has been stolen. So he looks all over the place, finally sighting it on nearby cotton island. So begins Plok's quest.

Graphics 8 out of 10

The graphics in this game are relatively good, at some points even rivaling Yoshi's Island. The frame rate is excellent, and the backgrounds almost look 3-d ish. But there are still a few problems. For one, each level has 3 layers of backgrounds. But the one in the back never moves. You won't notice it at first, but you'll eventually notice in a few later levels. More importantly, the game is touted to be a clay mation game, while if you look closely, it really isn't, though it does a pretty good job of replicating one. But overall, the graphics are slightly above average.

Music and Sound 10 out of 10

This game just has excellent sound. I usually judge only on the quality of the tunes, but this time I have to say that the sound quality itself is almost 32 bit-ish. The tunes never get annoying, and as I said, are CD perfect. The sound effects are humorous and in perfect synchronization. There is a different tune for each level.

Game Challenge 8 out of 10

When you play this game, you will doubt it was intended for 8-10 year olds. It's hard! Even though there are two challenge levels, "child's play" should be renamed "hard", and "Normal" should be "Insane"! "Normal" mode contains one extra level, Legacy island, while "CHILD'S PLAY" goes on as if this level never existed. Strange... On normal mode, you probably won't get past the third level of polyesta. The latter levels are extremely long.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

This game would be near perfect if not for the difficulty. You die too easily and frequently. But the gameplay is great. The early levels are the best, though the challenge gradually increases. If you consider yourself a slightly above average gamer, you'll get many years of fun out of it. But if you can beat it, call yourself the next wizard. A great game, overall.

Frustration

The most frustrating parts of this game are how every time you shoot a target, you lose a body part. Then you have to go to a hangar, and get it back. Another is the extreme difficulty. Plus, later levels have invincible(yes, invincible) enemies, and levels taking an hour to defeat. Have a good time on legacy island, if you know what sarcasm is. In that level, there are THREE Bobbins brothers, and you've got to nail them all to get the amulet.

Replayability 8 out of 10

This game is good because you do a little better every time you play. You probably won't beat it in the first sitting, so its a good thing to practice a lot. The levels are a pleasure to see and hear, making this game very addictive. It's fun to solve the puzzles. Be patient.

Game Value 10 out of 10

This game is worth the money, if you are good enough. I would buy it for 15 bucks. It will be worth it.

Overall 8.5 out of 10

This game is a good, hard game that scores A-. It is a pleasure to play, and has good quality. It will appeal to Yoshi's Island fans, and is often under estimated. It will appeal to gamers of all ages.
