Finished the first half of HeartGold with a time just shy of 70 hours. Lyra is the name I'm using, and is the name of the female character if you play as the male character (who is called Ethan if you play as the female, which I did). This is the team I beat the Elite Four with ☺️. Now on to the second half of the game!
Tombi (aka Ore! Tomba! In Japan and Tomba! in the US) is an action platform game developed by Whoopee-Camp in 1997 and released for PS1. Created by Tokuro Fujiwara, the creator of Ghosts and Goblins, it's a particular game.
Tombi is a classic platform divided in quests (called Events)with some soft RPG element.
If you clear events, you will be rewarded with magic energy, and proceeding in the game will be rewarded by adventure points, that will allow you to have power ups, like life bar extension and so on.
In Tombi! the villains are strange pigs, that invaded the Tombi's homeland.
The graphics are good for the times. The style is manga-super deformed, the pigs are very funny to watch, the main character is well animated.
The sound is aldo great, but this is not an exception, in the era of the CD tracks.
The Events are over 100, and will keep you busy for a good amount of time.
In conclusion Tombi is a very good game, and is considered a must have. I consider it a funny game and a very interesting and particular game, but inferior to other PS1 masterpieces. Strangely enough, it was printed in a smaller number confronted with other games in Europe, and it was never reprinted in Platinum edition.
