PSP Fanboy review: Downstream Panic!

Don't let its saccharin sweet exterior fool you. Downstream Panic! is one hardcore, ****ing difficult game. The colorful LocoRoco-esque presentation will easily trick gamers into thinking this is for kids. However, when you see your fish friends explode in an amazing display of blood and guts, you will think again.

The basic gameplay of Downstream Panic! is simple to grasp, and the game does a terrific job of teaching players the core essentials throughout the game. Like any good puzzle game, the game is easy to learn, but hard to master. Like in Lemmings, players must use the various tools at their disposal to safely create a path for the adorably helpless fish. Players will have access to bombs, spears, growing plants, and more in an effort to safely navigate the shark-infested, trap-riddled world of Downstream Panic!

Downstream Panic! is too happy!

Atari's upcoming PSP exclusive puzzle game, Downstream Panic! is a bit too happy. We love the art style, but the music is certainly going irritate a number of people. Although the game is rated E10 for ages 10 and up, we wonder if the game is largely aimed at those under the game's demanding age requirement.

Downstream Panic! looks hopeful

Do you happen to remember Downstream Panic, announced by Atari a few days ago? The premise involves having to rescue fish from a cyclone that has launched our delicious aquatic friends into the hemisphere. A bit silly, if you ask us, but the art style has us convinced.

With bright colors and highly animated environments, Downstream Panic has us surprisingly hopeful for it. Could it be the next LocoRoco? With its over-the-top premise and beautiful art style, it might just stand a chance.

Protect fish in new puzzler, Downstream Panic!

Atari announced yet another puzzle game for PSP -- this time involving fish. Players take the role of a "sea-creature preservationist" that must save the world from a cyclone that has blasted the earth's fish into the atmosphere. Seriously. By using various tools, they must protect the fish from land, predators and other obstacles, lest the world lose all its omega fatty acids.

"Fans of fast-paced puzzle games will fall in love with this new twist on the fish-out-of-water idea," said Donny Clay, producer, Atari, Inc. "We are thrilled to deliver this fun and interesting spin on the puzzle genre and look forward to publishing this title for the PSP system."

The game will feature over 80 different levels and additional downloadable content. Developed by Eko Software, the title is currently scheduled for an early 2008 release.
