Emergency Mayhem Announced
The city is falling apart, and it is up to you to put it back together! Codemasters has announced Emergency Mayhem, a disaster game that puts the player at the helm of the three emergency services in a race against time to hold together Crisis City. Exclusive to the Wii, the game will feature driving sequences with arcade mini-games, letting players control police, fire service or the paramedics as they dash around the city from one emergency to another.
There will be over 30 missions in the game, having the player rescuing people from burning buildings, defusing bombs and more. Interestingly, emergencies will be of a slapstick nature, as crazy situations will have banana-hurling monkeys, using a trampoline to bounce escaping prisoners back into custody and even more.
In Emergency Mayhem time is your enemy, relentlessly counting down as you take charge of a fire truck, ambulance, or police car to speed through the city’s eight different districts to the next emergency. Have you got the nerves necessary to beat the clock and save the city? Find shortcuts, such as making use of the city’s underground railways lines and even sewers, to get there on time and save the day.
When you reach the scene of the emergency play switches to one of over 30 mini-games which take unique advantage of the Wii Remote to solve crazy crises. Using the Wii Remote, you’ll have to pump the to practice CPR, point it to direct water from a powerful hose, mimic a wrench to bring bursting water-hydrants under control and aim it to fire tranquiliser darts into on-the-rampage monkeys!
Emergency Mayhem is due out during Q2 2008. More information and media can be found on the game’s website.
