The early nineties franchise of the Power Rangers may not have been a wild craze for long, but it is still popular on cable and satellite channels aimed at children. Although it does now have a lower profile, the spandex-clad amongst us will no doubt be looking forward to the GameBoy incarnation of the next in the series, cleverly titled Power Rangers: Light Speed Rescue.

While obviously in 2D (due to GameBoy limitations), games don’t have to be super real to be a lot of fun to play. The basis of the game involves you taking control of any of the five Power Rangers available and navigating your way around many hostile, flame-ridden environments, rescuing any citizens you find along the way. There are the basic kick and punch combat skills, but also a special attack that allows you to somehow punch through solid walls. Levels take place in both urban and industrial environments, but before you can progress you must rescue all specified hostages in a level. Although quite sparse, levels are vast, making it quite easy to get lost, and as a consequence, increases the amount of necessary playing time.

Light Speed Rescue doesn’t have as much combat as you might expect, but the level of puzzle solving required is compensation enough, making this a great challenge.
