MonkeyPaw has been bringing various PlayStation One titles to the PlayStation Network for a while now. We first started covering these games a year ago, with the likes of Yakiniku Bugyou and Rapid Angel, but now the big kahuna is here. Yes, the publisher’s most requested game, Tomba!, has finally found its way to digital platforms. Originally produced by the now-defunct studio, Whoopee Camp, it’s a game well worth that exclamation point in its title (especially due to how much money copies of the game sell for today).
The story revolves around our titular pink-haired protagonist seeking revenge upon some particularly mischievous pork. The evil pigs have robbed Tomba of his grandfather’s bracelet, so he seeks to defeat them by collecting the appropriately named “Evil Pig Bags” to lock them away and retrieve his valued possession. Along the way, he’ll run into old men, dwarves, and various other jungle dwellers that help him along the way. It’s not the most compelling story in the world, but it’s silly enough that it works.
I only had the demo from a magazine for this when it came out and I absolutely LOVED it. Honestly, this may have just convinced me to buy a PS3. No kidding. With the last of us coming up, the uncharted series to check out and Tomba! I think it might be time…
Haha, welcome to the party then, T04ST 😉 The PS3 is enjoying a quality end-of-generation.
Love this game!!! 😀
