Posted on April 15, 2008, Stephany Wacky Emergency Mayhem Ships for the Wii
Coming to the Wii this Friday, April 18, is Emergency Mayhem. Emergency Mayhem puts the player at the helm of the three emergency services in a frantic race against time to hold together Crisis City, a mad metropolis falling apart at the seams.
Combining chaotic driving sequences with arcade mini-games, you’ll be controlling the frenzied police, fire service or paramedics as they dash around the city from one emergency situation to the next. With over 30 missions, you’ll be rescuing people from burning buildings, defusing bombs and more. However, in this city, the emergencies are of a decidedly slapstick nature. Crazy situations will have you hurling bananas at out-of-control monkeys, using a trampoline to bounce escaping prisoners back into custody and herding penguins to safety with hilarious consequences.
In Emergency Mayhem, time is your enemy, 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. Find shortcuts by making use of the city’s underground railways lines and even sewers to get there on time.
When you reach the scene of the emergency play switches to one of over 30 mini-games, where you must solve the crazy crises. Using the Wii remote, you’ll have to pump the trigger 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 tranquilizer darts into on-the-rampage monkeys.
