Steve is keeping seasonal and really fancied a pumpkin spiced helmet for Halloween. I told him, that...
Merlin, a very powerful and wise wizard needed an apprentice; to help around the house. He used his powerful magic and created his apprentice from some old armour. At this moment, Steve was born. With no flesh or bones holding him together, Steve was impervious to pain and could regenerate, should the worst happen. Merlin was experimenting with spells such as inter-dimensional portals and even time travel. However, even with his great wisdom, Merlin’s experiments went horribly wrong. He had torn a huge hole in the fabric of space and the worlds we know and love, crumbled and broke into thousands of shards. As Steve was not part of the mortal realm, he was not affected by Merlin’s spell and the fate of the world rested on his shoulders. With the crumbling of the worlds, grotesque and hideous creatures were spawned out of evil, outer-world dimensions. Along the way, Merlin was managing to send notes to Steve to give him hints and enable Steve with powers and abilities. Steve has to collect all of the broken shards of the worlds and fix everything before it was too late. You play as Steve. Can you be the hero, the world needs?
Steve has been blessed with some serious powers, that can be upgraded throughout the game. He has the ability to shrink down and become just a hand! This enables him to get into smaller areas and gain extra power-ups or collect items that were otherwise out of reach. He can jump very high and not once, not twice, but, three times, in succession! After completing the third jump – if timed properly – Steve can then perform the most powerful attack he has; the Super Smash (imaginative name, I know!). Steve is also impervious to pain and can regenerate! Pretty cool eh?
In the game Steve can perform multiple jumps, one after the other! Not once, not twice, but, three times! Triple jump! Never before has the world seen a triple jump (don’t mention Mario 64!). Timing is key with the jumps, however, you need get the most out of the jumps height and ability to cover long distances.
Steve can perform three attacks, the most powerful of which is the Super Smash. This upgrade increases the distance in which damage is caused. So, the more you upgrade the ability, the more on screen carnage there is! Sound good? Great. Move along.
Yeah, I know, turning into a hand, woohoo. Who cares. Anyway, lets just get on with this. Steve can turn into a hand, gets into smaller areas, limited time, blah blah and the rest. This upgrade increases the amount of time you can spend as the rat…I mean hand. AKA, not a dinosaur…..pft.
Collecting the gems in the first few worlds will be tricky and you will have to be super precise! This upgrade creates a ring around the gems, meaning, when Steve gets within that ring, the gem moves to him. The more you upgrade, the larger the ring becomes! You will be the Pied Piper of gems. Beautiful.
Ever needed to know how many times you have died?! Worry not, young traveller, for I shall tell you.
Crushing enemies is fun, but, boasting to your ‘friends’ (you don’t have any) is more fun.
Kind of speaks for itself this one. It shows…..how many…..gems, you get the picture.
