Pallurikio Action Platformer Announced For WiiWare-1.052009-11-28 05:07:05Maura SIndependent Italian video game developer Playstos Entertainment* has today announced Pallurikio for WiiWare™. They describe the game as an “action platformer”, in which a young boy, Jimmy, and his dog are transported through a dimensional vortex when playing a mysterious board game that they’ve found. On arriving in a “mystical and wondrous” world, Jimmy turns into the round, bouncing Pallurikio. Bad for him, fun for us. Players can make Pallurikio jump and roll his way through over 50 levels, including Bakumbala Jungle and Palluro Prime, simply by pointing their Wii Remote™ at the screen. The game features classic 2D platform gameplay across Adventure and Time Attack modes, as well as collectable cards and space rockets. To learn more about the game, visit the official website. Pallurikio will be available for download on 11th December on the European Wii Shop Channel for 1,000 Wii Points™. The North American release date will be announced soon.
