Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Before a third fight can break loose between the the Bear and Bird duo and their arch-nemesis Gruntilda – who both seem rather unfit for the task – their endless squabbling attracts the attention of the Lord Of Games, an all powerful being behind the creation of all video games who wishes to settle things once and for all. He proposes to transport them to a land of his creation, Showdown Town, which plays host to the impressively sized game worlds of Nutty Acres, Banjoland, LOGBOX 720, Jiggoseum and Terrarium of Terror in a final game to end their constant feuding. The winner of this contest will earn the deed to Spiral Mountain, whilst the loser shall toil in the production line of LOG’s Video Game Factory for the rest of eternity.
In a remake nearly twenty-four years in the making, Jetpac Refuelled sees itself the brilliant successor to the first Jetpac title on the ZX Spectrum which marked Rare‘s very first steps into the gaming world back in 1983. In this intergalactic tale of strange worlds and hostile alien forces, Jetman is tasked with piecing together his ship with the far-flung components and stocking it up with fuel found in a disarray on the planets surface. With Jetpac Refuelled packing itself full of impressive planetary visuals, stellar sound score and extra goodies like weapon power-ups and achievements, the fundamental gameplay for the first Jetpac title remains intact, managing to hold on to its timeless legacy to this day.
Kameo: Elements of Power
After a great struggle between the Elfin Empire and the brutish Troll Army, the Elfin Queen Theena imparts the fabled Elements of Power with her youngest daughter, Kameo, which allows her to take the form of several Elemental warriors and utilize their unique abilities. Not seen celebrating is Kameo’s older sister, Kalus, who in a fit of jealously sees her way to releasing the previously cursed King Troll Thorn from his binds where chaos ensues. Still possessing the Elements of Power, Kameo will have to use her varying forms to ramp across spanning chasms, scale straight up crumbling castle walls and shower the ruthless Troll Army in a steady stream of fire, water, ice and rocks to restore order to the Elfin Empire.

Perfect Dark Zero
Predating the first Perfect Dark title by three years in the year 2020, Perfect Dark Zero follows the exploits of Joanna Dark prior to her joining the Carrington Institute as an agent. After her father is taken captive by dataDyne forces, Joanna attempts a ill-advised rescue mission that sees her father killed at the hands of Mai-Hem, son of dataDyne founder, Zhang-Li. Marking her personal vendetta against dataDyne, Joanna Dark soon finds herself immersed in the extraterrestrial world that was hidden from her, and the budding agent-in-training attempts to intercept the megacorp and botch their plans to use the alien devices for corruption. With her fathers death driving her ever onward, dataDyne is all too unaware of the perfect match it’s made for itself…
Recruited into the game to nurture an abandoned garden back to life, players take their place in the story of Piñata Island and its task of supplying only the best and happiest Piñatas to parties around the world. Shovels, seeds and watering cans, romance dances, tinkering and online crate deliveries would all became vital parts of the adventure. Of course every story needs a villain, and Professor Pester and his gang of Ruffians were only too keen to step up and cause chaos wherever they could. Sour Piñatas also made a nuisance of themselves, but at least with some effort a sharp gardener could rehabilitate those wayward souls.
Viva Piñata: Trouble In Paradise
When Professor Pester and his meddlesome Ruffians compromise Piñata Central’s electronic records, chaos ensues as the wiped data halts any outgoing Piñata’s to be shipped to their respective parties along with any knowledge of the Island inhabitants irrevocably damaged. Already in quite the predicament, players are tasked with revitalizing Piñata Island by growing their own gargantuan garden, and rebuilding the Piñata database as new residents move in. With a little gardening know-how and a little luck, you might manage to restore Piñata Island – and the extensive Piñata Central database – to its former glory.
