Games to Revisit: Tomba! 2: The Evil Swine Return

Before I start this post, I’m very excited to say I’ve done my first guest posting on A Safe Space for Curious Minds Blog. If you’re interested in serial killers, murderers, haunted places stories be sure to follow the blog along with the two creators who made it Lise and Karalee.

Now onto the main topic of this post …

The game centers on the exploits of a pink-haired feral child named Tomba as he attempts to rescue his girlfriend Tabby from a race of anthropomorphic and antagonistic pigs.

I’ve been obsessed with this game during my schooldays, I remember getting it from my cousins. The game is a platformer with a three-dimensional perspective in which movement is performed on predetermined linear paths. Whenever Tomba reaches a point where additional paths intersect with his current one, a set of flashing arrows appear above his head. At that point, Tomba can move in any direction that the arrows point. Some areas in the game enable the player to explore them in a top-down view, allowing Tomba to move around freely.

I recently played it using ePSXe which is a PSOne emulator, using more refined and smooth settings. I feel this game deserves a remake as it goes hand in hand with Spyro and Crash Bandicoot. When I played it couple of days ago, I finished it in 7 hours which was shocking to me because I remember I spent days even weeks trying to finish most of the side quests along with the story-based quests.

I confess that I played it at work since I wanted to waste time till I could go home and it was a time well spent, I really love this game. I highly recommend trying this game if you’re into platformer type of games and miss the nostalgia when those games were on the raise back then.
