Agatsuma Entertainment's rubbery platformer hits the US PSN today, with its unique ‘Rubbering Action’ physics-based puzzle platform blasting out of Japan. You play as a 20-year old backpacking Japanese sushi chef armed with a fishing rod, a rubber fishing line and a fishing hook.
You have to avoid fish-like enemies, conveyer belts, spikes, watery pits, time travel and more, with a range of more challenging puzzles and solutions, and the greater the time pressure becomes as you venture further in. Along the way, look out for shortcuts and secret exits and unlock bonus levels.
As a special bonus for fans, the first ever title in this gaming franchise ‘UmiharaKawase’ has also been included. UmiharaKawase was originally released way back in 1994 for console. It is the elasticity of Umihara’s rubber fishing line that has always set this franchise apart from all other rope games, giving unprecedented levels of mobility and discovery. Tightening the line or giving lots of slack can be the difference between success and failure.
The game runs at a slick 60 frames per second and is down as $19.99, there's an EU release in the works too, currently listed as "soon".
