Turok returns to the small screen to crush the craniums of cold-blooded carnivores. A companion pak to Turok 2: Seeds of Evil for the N64, Acclaim's side-scrolling adventure for Game Boy Color captures the prehistoric spirit of the hunt.
Turok 2 is similar to Turok for Game Boy, but colorful graphics make Seeds of Evil a more impressive visual experience. Purple Velociraptors, orange Raptiods, and green Drones scour the Lost World, while each level has its own unique color scheme. Character graphics are big and bold, so battling Bionosaurs has never been easier on the eyeballs.
Turok's main mission is to wipe out the Incubators of the Bionosaurs. A seemingly simple task becomes much more complicated as Turok must battle through an army of predators, find hidden switches, and back-track through the levels to find exit points. Just because Turok is hunting on Game Boy Color, don't expect his moves to be limited. Turok can run, swim, climb, crawl, jump, and flex his trigger finger on many different types of weapons.
Turok spends most of his time jumping and shooting through side-scrolling levels, but there are variations in the game play which will keep you on your toes. When Turok jumps on the back of a Velociraptor in the middle of Level 2, you'll find yourself jumping gaps and struggling to shoot oncoming enemies. We're not sure how Turok tamed a Raptor, but it would be a cool addition to a future Turok adventure! Later, the camera slides behind Turok and the game transforms into a vertically scrolling shooter.
With nine levels, Turok 2 tests the determination of even the most seasoned dinosaur hunter. Your progress is saved with a password feature, but the game records the number of lives you have when you reach a specific level. If you beat a boss with only one life remaining, your password will start you on the next level with only one life. This makes the game more challenging, and encourages you to replay completed levels until you can beat them without losing many lives.
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil looks wonderful on Game Boy Color, but you can slay dinosaurs on Game Boy Pocket, Super Game Boy, and the original Game Boy as well.
