One of the reasons for the DS' amazing popularity is arguably its great lineup of quirky, yet amazingly fun titles. The PSP really hasn't had a lot of those, that is until WTF (Work Time Fun)
, is released. For those who don't know, WTF
is much like Nintendo's Wario Ware
franchise - full of short mini-games that test your reaction time, math skills and precision.
But what sets WTF
apart from some of the games that came before it is the game has great Adhoc multi-player features, and IGN's Jeff Haynes recently stopped by D3Publisher of America's
office to try them out.
How the Adhoc mode will work is players will enter into the Hell Cantina, one player will select "hiring job" (or set up a multi-player match) while another player selects "apply for a job" (or join a multi-player match). Then, players will be able to select from one of five different games. IGN played the following games:
- Cliff Race 2000 - Players are on a cliff and try to get as close to the edge without falling off;
- Copycat 2 - Players play a burping Simon Says game; and
- Lumberjack Challenge - Players try to cut logs without chopping animals that are sitting on top.
Sadly, it doesn't look like the game will feature an online mode, but if the game is as good as it looks, I won't complain. I'm sure Work Time Fun
will have plenty of WTF moments, and for that, I'm extremely happy. Look for the game to be released Sept. 26.
