How do you play retro games?
The game's title screen follows a short animated sequence showing the Great Valley in the rain
The main menu
Starting a new game. After the player enters their name there is a short sequence in which Mo asks the gang for their help
The character selection screen. The left/right controls rotate the camera to show a different character
The start of the first level. There is no difficulty setting, no time limit, no set number of lives. Just run & jump and get to the end collecting those tree stars along the way
The end of the first level and the game automatically saves the player's progress
After completing one level the player advances to the nest, or they can go back and replay an earlier level if they wish
There are tree stars that actually hang in the trees. These are too high to collect by jumping but they will fall if the tree is struck
The third level is a challenge. The player must complete this course faster than their friend on the opposite bank
Petrie, being a flying creature, doesn't do the runny, jumpy, platform things his friend does.
This is Petrie's game. It's a sort of jigsaw that uses pictures which the player unlocks as they progress through the game. If a piece is placed in the wrong place there's a nasty sound.
in-game movies are also unlocked by the player's progress. Two are available from the start. 'Rain in the Great Valley' is the opening sequence while 'Mo is Lost' plays at the start of a new game
