A few more AOU videos – Gaia Attack 4, Jigsaw World Arena, Puzzle of Ocha, Speed Rider

February 21, 2010

Just a few more videos from AOU I’ve found featuring things to round-up the weekend.

Taito’s Gaia Attack 4. It’s good to see it in action – they used video of real world environments and have overlaid them with 3D  graphics. There’s an interesting Ghostbusters style mini-game at the beginning of this video.

Jigsaw World Arena. This is another new puzzle game that uses the PGM2 hardware for solid 2D performance. This is a four player title that looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Puzzle of Ocha, the other PGM2 powered puzzle game that we had spoke of recently. Nice to see it in action.

Speed Rider by IGS.

While Taiwanese company IGS is mostly known for their work with 2D games, they are slowly exploring the 3D realm with titles like their upcoming racer, Speed Rider. Some information on SR was seen at JAMMA and now IGS has launched a website for the game and it was even seen on location test recently. According to the website, it appears that the game will have a configuration where you sit on a motorcycle controller but at both JAMMA and the recent location test the game was shown off in a modified Taito Vewlix cabinet that featured a motorcycle steering mechanism but not a seat.
