Posted: 4 months ago.
Author: Andy Robertson.
In order to progress you free Electoons from their cages. Each level has hidden areas that require repeat play through to find all the collectibles. It follows a story about the Glade of Dreams being overrun by Darktoons. You command Rayman and Globox in a mittion to restore peace.
Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. You play on the same system with a shared screen. Players can join and leave as they want. Only console versions offer multiplayer, the 3DS or Vita version don't have this.
PEGI rated 7 for Fear and Violence.
ESRB EVERYONE 10 for Comic Mischief, Suggestive Themes and Mild Cartoon Violence. As players run, jump, and fly through each level, they must avoid hazards (e.g., fireballs, lightning bolts, lava pits) and defeat a variety of creatures (e.g., birds, shrimp, fish, robots, dragons). Most enemies disappear into puffs of smoke when hit. During the course of the game, players must rescue female nymphs that wear revealing outfits (e.g., moderate amounts of cleavage). The dialogue occasionally contains comical remarks and/or references to bathroom humour.
The Wii has a few helpful settings, like disable rumble, but you have to use gesture controls for most games and the system menu. Windows has extensive accessibility features. Some, like colour correction, work with games. Lots of accessibility software can be used with PC games, from voice recognition to input device emulators... read more about system accessibility settings.
