Review

Wind Jammers is another game, like Flipshot (although this came 4 years earlier) that is very much like pong. This time though, you throw a frisby instead of bouncing a ball back and forth. The aim of the game is to score points by hitting the net behind your opponent. You score different amounts of points depending on where you hit the net, and everything is under a time limit. The person with the most points wins the set, and each game is played over three rounds. After every couple of matches you get to play on a bonus stage to score more points, these range from ten pin bowling with the frisby, to throwing the frisby and controlling a dog that you must make catch it.

This game is O.K graphically and everything does its job well. There are some nice special effects for your special moves, but there really is only so much that can be done with this type of game so don't expect anything amazing. The sound also falls into the same category, it suits the game well, but isn't anything special.

This game is nice, simple and easy to get into and can be fun for a while, especially in two player mode. Even thought this is 4 years older than the aforementioned Flipshot I personally prefer this game slightly. Give it a try anyway.
