Lots of fun stuff begins with P - pizza, pop, pasta and Pikmin too! Here's all you need to know about the Pikmin are up to on the Gamecube.

Ok, here's the story. You're Captain Olimar of the busted spaceship Dolphin. You've just crashed on a planet and you have to fix your ship before your spacesuit runs out of air.

Pikmin to the Rescue!

Pikmin are a bunch of plant people that you can get to help you rebuild your ship. You can command them to move stuff, gang up on hungry alien beasts and help you solve puzzles so you can get your ship fixed and go home.

Pikmin Fun Stuff

The graphics and music are really cool - they're bright, cheerful and perfect for Pikmin. The puzzles in the levels are addictive and fun to solve. There's even a lot of cool strategy to play with. The best thing is that the controls are really easy to use.

Pikmin Final Fun Facts

Pikmin is an awesome game, the only bummer is that it's a little short. Bonus levels or multiplayer Pikmin contests would've been wicked add-ons.


How Hard Is Pikmin?

It's easy to learn the controls and the game won't strain your brain too badly.

    Recently on Friday of this week Super Smash Bros for Wii U has been released. If you thought broken game releases on the PS4 and Xbox one were cool. You don't know what your missing from Smash Bros on the Wii U. For starters it's 60 frames per second and runs in 1080p. That's a plus when you look at recent popular games like Call Of Duty Advance Warefare (PS4) which runs at 1080p and the frame rate drops down dramatically on campaign. But those frame rates and graphics resolutions aren't holding the game from show casing over 40 fighters to chose from.
