Get down and boogie with three more wacky minigames.
The fun never stops with Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, which offers more than 50 minigames for you to shake your booty and Wii Remote at. We had the opportunity to share three of these with you last week, and this week we get to unveil another three crazy rabbid games: Jungle Boogie, the Garden of Weeden, and Rabbid Wrestling. These hyperactive, overly caffeinated rabbids have hijacked the airwaves, so it's nonstop wackiness each day of the week. Be sure to have some friends on call, because up to four players can take turns or play together in TV Party, and party games aren't meant to be played alone.
Similar to last week's Trick Me, Dancing with Dweebs: Jungle Boogie has you waving that Wii Remote and Nunchuk in the air to the beat. Instructions will show up on the top screen, where a stickman demonstrates the appropriate move. It would've been funny if the rabbids were the ones giving the commands, but the stickman does make it easy to see where your arms need to be positioned. The higher the difficulty, the more moves you'll have to bust out, and you can play against friends to see who can put on the best show. The rabbids at the bottom of the screen provide visual feedback, so if one of them is snoozing, that's generally not a good sign. The instructions fly by from right to left, and an indicator at the end of the screen lets you know if you're on beat or not--and if you're not, your Wii Remote will buzz. At least, that's what we assume the buzzing means, since sometimes it buzzes even when we feel like we got the moves right.
The Garden of Weeden is a minigame in which you can use the Wii Balance board to pour weed killer on overgrown vegetation. You stand on the balance board and lean left and right to aim the hose, and tilt forward and backward for the angle. This one is easier to play with the Wii Remote, where you just aim left and right and tilt it up and down for distance. When you're on the balance board, it seems that the strange orange concoction you're spraying isn't as accurate, because the weeds end up completely out of control in a short amount of time--but you gain points for trying. It's a relatively simple game that can get a little hectic, but because you take turns playing, it's not as fun as some of the others.
The best of the three is Rabbid Wrestling, where you try to push rabbids around with a plunger in a wrestling ring. You wiggle the Wii Remote to poke the other rabbids and use the analog stick to move around. Points accumulate as you stay in the ring and try to push your opponents. Large, beefy wrestlers also jump into the fray, so you'll have to dodge them while lunging at your opponents with your toilet tool. The goal is to not get squashed, so you'll want to avoid the shadows of the wrestlers and try to prod the others into the unsafe zone. Rabbids who get squished stand outside the ring but can still hit you with the plunger, so beware.
There are plenty of games to cover in TV Party, so stay tuned for more silly rabbid minigames next week. Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party will be released on November 18.
Wow, a party game?! I've never seen that idea before. Pure genius. I think the designers should win an award for such an original and innovative idea!...
Looks really sweet can't wait to play. anyone know if it's going to be the same sort of thing as the first 2. it looks like 2d ish
i like the rayman raving rabbids franchise.lets get drunk and slap some rabbids one whole weekend with friends.
Those "plungers" sure look like wrenches in the picture. I love these games. They are great fun to play with a group of friends (especially after a few adult beverages).
