Opoona is a strange beast. Not the character Opoona. The character Opoona is a strange little egg-like boy. No, the game Opoona. It's an intriguing blend of action and lifestyle RPG, all wrapped up in a lovably kooky design by Shintaro Majima.

So, Opoona has gone and crash-landed on the Planet Landroll after his spaceship was involved in a mysterious accident. He's been seperated from his family and forced to live alone. As a result, he's having to do what all responsible adults must do - get a job. And search for his missing siblings. And defend himself and the people of Landroll from a group of nasties called the Dark Rogues. Luckily, the young chap's descended from a line of warriors called the Cosmo Guards, so he's pretty much good to go.

The action combat is handled using the Nunchuk to manipulate Energy BonBons as they're flung out into the ether. In fact, the whole job lot can be controlled by the attachment, creating a single-hand control scheme for the game.

Fighting Dark Rogues won't do it alone, however. Opoona must also adapt to his new environment, meet new people and make his way through the world of work.

Poor guy's got a lot on his plate...
