Sonic the Hedgehog has a lot to answer for. When the Sega mascot debuted in 1991, the wild success of the game saw all developers under the sun rush to create their own cartoon pet platform game. Wow, there were some stinkers: who else remembers Boogerman? Cool Spot? Even McDonalds had Mick and Mack: Global Gladiators.
Zool was far from the worst of these games, but he’s not terribly good either: the magazines of the time gave him outrageously high scores, no doubt why he sold well, but his main asset was always to look good and take advantage of the maximum The Amiga color palette for stunning visuals.
Sumo Digital has announced that Zool Redimensioned will be released soon, a project of its Sumo Academy, and is a kind of remake and half not. It is said to have been "rebuilt from the beginning for the modern audience", but from the trailer it seems to be the same game in HD. I admire how, optimistically, he tries to turn Zool's worst element, the ridiculous difficulty, into a selling point: "Zool's old-school platform action will challenge the strongest players!" I mean yes, it will be. Then you will play something else.
I'm sorry, I'm sick of an ant that probably doesn't deserve it. There are elements of the game that are seemingly changing, including new secrets in the levels, and for some reason the Mega Drive version is included. Zool Redimensioned came out sometime this month and you can wish it here.
