Wetspot 2
(Enhanced Creations)


"Bubble Bobble has just gone the way of the dinosaurs"

2000 QB Gaming Gold Award Winner for Best Arcade Game and Game of the Year

Cuby and Coby are two pretty peeved crabs! Monsters have trashed up all the places Cuby and Coby love to hang out, and now everything's a mess. There's only one thing to do when monsters put everything to shambles: Take REVENGE!!

In Wetspot 2, you're gonna have to use Cuby's strength to take down the monsters, in ten worlds of arcade-style action. Battle ghosts, penguins, and other horrifying baddies. Or, grab a buddy and get in on some 2-player action!

Graphics (n.)
The use of animation and visual effects to stimulate the senses
Wetspot 2's graphics are top-notch, make no doubt of that. You immediately get an impression of just what calibur of graphics you're going to expect through the game's introduction, which shows the marvellous Enhanced Creations logo with the help of three green balls that bounce around and eventually dispense. Then Cuby and Coby are introduced in an arcade-style flurry. Immediately you get the feeling after that intro that you're ready to play a good game.

Wetspot 2 doesn't disappoint later in the graphics department either. Each of the game's ten levels rotate around original tilesets that are carefully rendered. The action, which takes place on a birds-eye view, is smooth and flickerless. I like the pixel-by-pixel movements a lot, and I'm really surprised by just how many enemies flutter around while all the action happens. Very arcade... very nice.

Sound/Music (n.)
The smooth blend of atmospheric sounds and original harmonies
Bubble Bobble sound effects and 80s/Disney music work together to keep players into the game. This can be a good and a bad thing for Wetspot. Hearing familiar arcade sound effects like those in Bubble Bobble took away from the individual feeling you come to expect of game's from Wetspot's calibur, which is already pretty inspired by Bubble Bobble in terms of gameplay. It's also questionable if original music would have captured the happy, party-like feel that only Disney music can deliver.
Gameplay (n.)The precision of control and involvement of character within its universe vvvv
(Very Good)
Let's consider the options on this incredibly versatile Puzzle/Arcade game. Joystick support, excellent level design, and 2-player simulataneous action. Aren't these the kind of options that should get you 5 stars for gameplay? Apparently not!

I hesitate because the items and concepts in Wetspot 2 come straight from Bubble Bobble. Wetspot 2 works as an arcade game/puzzle game hybrid... your task is to defeat enemies by crushing them within blocks. Crush them and you will find fruit for bonus points. Make sure you get all the enemies before time runs out... (Bubble Bobble and Pengo veterans among you will see that this gameplay formula is just a little too familiar.)

However, Wetspot 2 does deserve some credit in the sense that it did combine ideas from Bubble Bobble and Pengo, to form a sort of arcade giant that suffers none of the gameplay flaws of its inspirations. The two-player action is also a real help, as it gives a cooperative element to Wetspot 2 that other QB games simply do not have. 

Story (n.)
The creativity and presentation of the game's critical plot
Average. It would have been nice if this game had some demos to explain the action, but in the same token that would take away from the game's arcade feel.
Replay Value (n.)
The timelessness of the gamer's delight, such that the experience can be repeated again and again
The one-player mode is somewhat okay. It does get pretty lonely playing alone though, and the two-player action is the real reason why Wetspot 2 gets perfect replay value. Wetspot 2 seems to cuddle up to you. Installing the game is a breeze, and getting all the bells and whistles of the game to work is also a cinch as long as your hardware is compatible. The joystick support is the finishing touch, giving you and a buddy an opportunity to just enjoy the arcade experience.
Challenge (v.)
To strike the mental nerve in such a way as to stimulate human thought and reflexes
I was one of those people fooled into believing that beating level one was an indication that you are a Wetspot master, and that the levels would never get any worse. But Enhanced Creations was fiendish, creating levels that are well laid-out for maximum thumb-twiddling and engineering a group of wicked enemies that vary in intelligence and in attacks. Each level offers a new surprise if you have the skill to pass them, and teamwork between Cuby and Coby plays a special role in taking care of the latter worlds.
Fun Factor (n.)
The overall entertainment value as maintained throughout the adventure
Games like Wetspot 2 are as fun as you want it to be. This isn't a game that you can or is even worth solving overnight, since the game does offer a password system to keep you in check. But if you have the determination (or at least a willing friend) to ready yourself for one of the most popular challenges that QB has to offer, then it's time to swear some revenge in Wetspot 2.
