Rayman Origins for Wii
Rayman Origins is a platform game developed and published by Ubisoft for PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. The game was released on November 15, 2011 in North America, November 24, 2011 in Australia and November 25, 2011 in Europe for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii. It will also be released for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita on a later date. The story follows Rayman, his friend Globox and two teensies as they fight Darktoons and other evil creatures that have infected the Glade of Dreams.
Rayman Origins is a side-scrolling platformer, simultaneously playable with up to four local players who may drop in or out at any time. Players can choose to control either Rayman, Globox or two Teensies, with additional costumes available as the game progresses.
Players travel through each level, fighting enemies and rescuing imprisoned Electoons. As the game progresses, players gain new abilities such as running up walls, gliding in midair after jumping and shrinking in size which will allow them to reach new areas. Certain segments also sees players riding a mosquito, where players can shoot enemies or suck them up and fire them. If a character is hit by an enemy or obstacle, he will inflate into a ballooned state until another player can bring him back into the game by slapping him, similar to New Super Mario Bros. Wii, although players can collect hearts that will protect them from one hit. However, if all players are inflated simultaneously, or if a character is hit during single play, play returns to the last checkpoint. Throughout each level, players can collect gold-coloured Lums, and when a character collects a "King" Lum it temporarily doubles the smaller Lums value.
In order to progress through certain parts of the story, players need to free Electoons. Each level has hidden puzzle-like segments where players must solve varying difficulties of puzzles in order to free the caged Electoons at the end. More Electoons can be earned by collecting a certain amount of Lums within a level, with players being awarded a medal if they collect all the Lums. After certain levels are completed, players can access a time trial mode in which they must race through the level as quickly as possible to earn more Electoons, with trophies available for the fastest time. Players can also unlock special 'treasure chest' levels, in which they must chase a runaway treasure chest across a dangerous course. Completing these challenges gives players ruby colored "teeth" which, when players have collected all of them, grant access to an additional world, called The Stars of the Livid Dead Tour.
