Hello fellow Ranger fans! Long time, no see! I’m finally making my return to reviews by reviewing the various-handheld Power Rangers games, starting with Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue for the Game Boy Color.
First released in 2000, Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue was released on multiple video-game formats, including the Game Boy Color, the Nintendo 64, the PlayStation, and even a PC format for Windows/Mac users. The Game Boy Color version is a side-scrolling game, while the Nintendo 64 and PlayStation versions had a 3D game-play and featured better graphics. Sadly, the PC version was more an “activity center” than a real game.
Official product description:
The Power Rangers have decided to take a more active role in their hometown of Mariner Bay. They have redesigned their Zords into rescue vehicles including a helicopter, ambulance, and fire truck providing the city with a powerful response team. Choose your character from among all five Rangers, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The spandex-clad heroes must travel through 20 levels in an attempt to save people from fires, floods and other natural disasters. Every Power Ranger must search through the levels for all of the tools needed to make the rescue, as well as find the proper path around the destruction. However, the evil Diabolico dispatches his henchmen to block the Power Rangers at every turn while they also must contend with Mother Nature. Take control of the Rangers and save the day in POWER RANGERS LIGHTSPEED RESCUE.
