Two great games starring bizarre, French, limbless hero Rayman are on offer here in this bargain double pack - the original 2D platformer Rayman and its 3D sequel The Great Escape.
In the first of the two titles, Rayman has to free the imprisoned Electoons to re-establish order in his world. For each level, there is a medallion with six empty spaces, each of which corresponds to a cage of Electoons, which Rayman has to find. Each time you free a cage of Electoons, one space in the medallion is filled. Upon completion of a level, the stages available will be highlighted on screen. In order to reach the Candy Chateau level, all of the Electoons in the first five levels must be set free. Considering that there are no less than sixty levels to get through, you realise you’ve got your work cut out right from the off.
Rayman 2: The Great Escape is an action platformer that requires you to think on your toes. The evil pirates have enslaved Rayman’s planet and, to make things worse, the core of his world has exploded, releasing 800 Lums of energy. It is essential that Rayman collect these Lums to return peace to the land.
