9th Impact Studios have announced that they are bringing their mobile racing title, The Danger Games to the Nintendo Switch. Previously available on Android and iOS, the app is based on British kid's TV series Danger Mouse.
I loved Danger Mouse as a youngling. Somewhere I still have a plush toy of the anthropomorphic secret agent, which was knitted for me by a dearly departed grandparent. Danger Mouse was an easily digestible, funny and cool British cartoon from the tongue-in-cheek studios of Cosgrove Hall, also responsible for other 80's stalwarts Trap Door and Count Duckula.
The Danger Games is based on the 2015 relaunch of the series, and features the Greatest Secret Agent in the World competing in various track events alongside friends and enemies such as Penfold, Colonel K and the villainous Baron Greenback. There's also a new gal character, Jeopardy Mouse, who wasn't in the 80's version, and as such appears drawn in a oddly different style to everybody else.
The game sees characters running through the streets of London, collecting power-ups to waylay each other's efforts to reach the finish line. Even for a kid's game, it looks kinda bland and weirdly slow, particularly when DM gets in his famous Danger Car and appears to travel with less speed than he did on foot. Perhaps my jaded, old-man's-eyes are missing some magic that'll work on the youths.
Danger Mouse: The Danger Games is coming to Nintendo Switch soon. The trailer below features footage from the game's mobile version.
