What is it?

Rocket: Robot on Wheels is a game developed by Sucker Punch and published by Ubisoft for the Nintendo 64. It was released in November of 1999. You take control of Rocket (a robot who is on a wheel) as he tries to save his creator's amusement park, Whoopie World, from destruction by an angry second-string raccoon mascot, Jojo. When released, it was marketed with the advanced (for its time) physics engine the game used, as well as marvelous other features! Check out this time warp for more!

Why play it?

RRoW was over-looked by many people due to its lackluster appearance when compared to superior, similar games like Super Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie. However, it has merits of its own and is definitely a game worth showing off. I'm not claiming to be the best Rocket player in the world, but I give it a fair shake.

Plus, it had a red cartridge.


Format

Dodd the Hammer will be joining me again for this video LP and many discussions will be had about the reality of the amusement park in the game. I'll try to keep it at 2 videos per week.
