Those of you with a long memory will recall the blue blob star of classic Amiga game, Putty. After 18 years, he is set to make his return to gaming in Putty Squad from System 3.
Stretching his way onto the PSP Go, PS3, iPod Touch and iPad, this unlikely hero is charged with a quest to rescue his friends in an old-school platform adventure. Putty has the following abilities:
The Stretch: Putty can stretch left, right, up and down in order to reach items and drop down to areas below him.
Lie Flat: What better way of avoiding enemies than simply lying flat against the ground?
Absorb: Items can be absorbed and used at a later date.
Attack: Think thereâ€™s nothing more shocking than a fist made of putty? Well, there is. Throughout the game Putty will be able to upgrade his attacks, which range from a simple punch through to electrifying prods and putty darts.
Inflate: Everyone knows that if you pump putty full of hot air it rises. Putty can inflate himself in order to scale otherwise unreachable heights but he can only hold his breath for so long!
Putty Squad is due later this year.
