One of two early-GameCube titles created under the guidance of master Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Pikmin offers a new style of gameplay in a brand new game world. In this strategy adventure, players take the role of an unfortunate space traveler who crash-lands on a strange planet that is teeming with plant life. The crash seems to have scattered parts of the spacecraft across the land and the hero will have to find these and bring them all back to the landing site if he ever hopes to make it back home.
Luckily, the planet is populated with strange but friendly plant-like creatures called Pikmin. When the spaceman plucks these creatures from the ground, they will gratefully scurry after him and follow his instructions. Different sorts of Pikmin have different abilities and can be developed in different ways. The player can control the little creatures individually, in small groups, or en masse. Pikmin can perform lots of useful tasks to help the hero rebuild his ship, such as clearing paths, moving items, and battling dangerous enemies. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
