We will be seeing the long-awaited followup to Ken Griffey Jr. GB next
month! And boy, what a great month it will be. Look at the rich color of
the grass. While the specs of the Game Boy Color say that only 52 colors
can be displayed onscreen at once, the Software Creations developers have
found a way to display tons of colors on the screen at once. Must be some
pixel-blending or something. (RE GBC must be using this method as well.)
In the game, all the MLB teams will be there, and the real MLBPA players
are there as well! This is good, compared to the made-up names of the SNES
series, which got annoying after a while. You can play a 2 player simultaneous
field game, or you can play with 4 friends during an alternating Home Run
Derby. In addition to the derby, there are stat sheets, season games, play-off
games, and exhibition games.
Batter slides for base... and he's safe! The game will feature short FMV
scenes as well.
While the AI can be tough, you can trade any tired player with
the CPU for an extremely good player and get away with it. (You scoundrel.)
Some players don't play ball as well as other players. Lots of the characters
have their own characteristics and, depending on them, they may not run
as fast or jump as high. Some batters even have their own batting stances.
In-built in the game are short FMV sequences like the ones found in MIB
and MK4 for Game Boy Color.
While not too much is known about the rest of the game, you can
be sure that DMG Ice will post it here as soon as it becomes available.
