Price$ 79.95 (AUD)
Gigantic waffles and an ocean of acidic syrup. Chickens that shoot lasers Cyclops style, llama farms, and massive hamsters. Best of all, a flame-thrower that launches fiery toilet paper. Sound enticing? Well, you got it all in the fabulous world of Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil on the PSP. Death Jr. 2's unhindered creativity, amazing art direction, and dark humour make it a unique PSP experience.
Death Jr. and his quirky buddies are back for another adventure in this up and coming game when they accidentally release a Hulk-like evil spirit. Unfortunately, this time, the spirit takes Evil-Plus supplements that make it especially formidable.
The game smoothly combines FPS elements with platform action for fun play. The updated camera system allows you to rotate views and get a better view of your enemies and surroundings. The graphic elements are top-notch (especially the flashy particle effects). Added to the vivid artwork of the course layouts and a groovy soundtrack, Death Jr. 2 is a treat to the senses.
Unlike its predecessor, Death Jr. 2 now has the improved option to play the game as either Death Jr. or Pandora. This allows for a two-player mode where each player can pick one of the two. The game experience differs depending on which character you choose. Pandora carries a whip as a melee weapon and can nimbly cross narrow paths while Death Jr., with his multi-purpose scythe, can swing across gaps and slide down ropes at a faster pace.
Both characters can learn multiple melee attack combinations as well as create their own long-range weapons depending on the materials you collect in each level. There are a total of eight weapons for each character. Weapons are diverse and include freeze guns, flamethrowers, gas mines, electric guns, and rocket launchers. As an added plus, both Pandora and Death Jr. can perform hover jumps. By pressing X twice, they can twirl their melee weapons in the air for a long distance leap.
Death Jr. 2 is definitely a game that works for those of you who just love hacking at things. Levels spawn swarms of enemies with complex AI that keep coming at you unless you attack their regeneration area. The creative randomness of the enemies is delightful. After all, not too many games have llamas, chickens, hamsters, gorillas, possessed trees, gigantic centipedes, and mechanical spiders going for you all at once. These situations give good reason to master the attack combinations gained through experience.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
