A very fun little game and it’s a shame it was overshadowed by bigger titles like Super Mario Bros. Hopefully now, it will receive the attention it deserves!
Puzzle fans should take new notice of Wrecking Crew now, even if they've avoided it before by thinking it's more of an action title. And if they did, it's not surprising – this game hasn't been properly presented in the past. But if gamers who loved Tetris, Bejeweled, Dr. Mario and Puzzle Quest jump on board and give this one a fair amount of downloads, we might also be blessed with its sequel.
Mario, Nintendo's ubiquitous mascot, has appeared in dozens of games of differing nature since the company started developing video games decades ago. Best known as the portly plumber who battles turtles and androgynous egg-launching pink dinosaurs, Mario sets his plunger aside for a trusty hammer in the oddball NES title Wrecking Crew, now available for the Wii's Virtual Console. What starts off as an unremarkable game of destruction quickly proves to be an addictive puzzler that keeps you busy with tough but doable levels and a rudimentary level editor.
"Wrecking Crew" gehört leider zu den am wenigsten beachteten Spielen des Mario-Franchises, was vor allem in Anbetracht des enormen Spielspaßes, den diese sehr anspruchsvolle Rätselei bietet, aus heutiger Sicht nicht einmal ansatzweise nachzuvollziehen ist. Vermutlich ist dies nur dem Fakt geschuldet, dass es einfach in der Flut an anderen hochkarätigen Spielen der Zeit untergegangen ist. Hier sollten alle Fans von Puzzlespielen zuschlagen.
The longevity is also marginally improved with a rudimentary level designer, which allows you to create and save four of your own creations for solo or two-player fun, a feature previously exclusive to the Japan-only NES Data Recorder. It's a decent time-waster, in a sort of sub-Dig Dug kind of way, though it mostly reminded me of the early Jon Ritman hit, Bear Bovver. I can think of more worthwhile ways to spend 500 points of pretend Nintendo money, but it ain't bad.
