Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel
The nemesis of everyone's favorite spunky bat (Aero the Acro-Bat that is) breaks from the evil Edgar Ektor for his own adventure! Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel has the same "feel" as the Aero games, but not so much that it feels like an imitation or the same game with a new face: Zero requires skill, technique, and patience. However, once you fully master the character (there are several areas in the various stages that are specifically designed so you can practice his nosediving and other techniques). Zero also has throwing stars and nunchakus to keep the nasties at bay, as he tries to defeat Jacques Le Sheets!
A great action game with a unique character that actually does more than just run-and-jump.
Zero has his own game, so who will fight Aero the Acro-Bat?
When Zero falls into the gravel-munching machine and has his skeleton spit out!
I really enjoy Zero. It's very rare that a game combines great graphics with lots of technique. Zero is a consistent challenge throughout, and even hard-core gamers will be hard pressed to win it. I especially like the diving move. It's innovative and it goes well with the excellent control. Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel stands out as one of the best action cartridges on the Genesis. A must-buy for Genesis owners.
It looks as if Aero the Acrobat is in for some trouble now. Zero is simply too cool. There's a never-ending array of techniques you can use to get through the levels, which are huge by the way! The background colors are very vibrant. It seems that companies are learning how to get around the Genesis' color limitations quite nicely. Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel is a definite must-have for every action game fan!
Zero is a surprisingly exceptional game for the Genesis. The graphics are detailed with a great color scheme. Zero, although able to kick butt, still looks cute. I like his little Bruce Lee animation when he clears a level. Pretty amusing. The sound is cool too, but the standout feature of the game is its play mechanics. Yes, he's got the standard action moves like jump and attack, but his swoop looks cool! Zero plays great!
Just when you thought there was nothing left for a mascot character to do ... along comes Zero. He is definitely a fresh little guy with all the moves of Bruce Lee, all the attitude of Sonic and some original techniques of diving and swooping. To complement the great technique is some very colorful Genesis graphics and sounds. Truly an exceptional action cart, this is right up there with his nemesis Aero!
