The Adventures of Shuggy is a 2D platformer containing a variety of different levels with a leaning towards puzzles. There are over 100 levels connected through a gradually unlocking map screen ensuring there is always a variety of levels to choose from. Various different mechanics give each level a fresh spin with Shuggy travelling in time, swinging on ropes, rotating levels, turning to a zombie, shrinking, growing, flying, teleporting and more. The game takes place in an old Scottish mansion recently inherited by young Shuggy, a cartoon vampire. To clear the mansion of evil spirits he must venture through the five different areas of the mansion, The Dungeon, The Boiler Room, The Gallery, The Graveyard and The Clocktower. Progress through the mansion is punctuated by comic book cut scenes and the occassional boss encounter.
I've knocked a point off of this game because it is the only game in my collection which the program "Joy2key" does not work on. It seems that it is somehow hard-coded to only respond to an Xbox joypad and nothing else.
Pity. I use joy2key on at least 25 other games and they accept it fine.
