The Great Protoon has been stolen! The universe's harmony and balance is breaking down because it's gone — Electoons are being scattered throughout the world with the loss of stability because of the Great Protoon's capture. Now it's up to Rayman, with your help, to save the world and hold off the destruction until the Fairy Betilla has time to regenerate from her defeat at the hands of the evil Mr. Dark.
Sound familiar? If you are an original Rayman fan, it should. Ubi Soft Entertainment has pulled together a collection of games and products associated with this popular character. More than three million copies of the original Rayman have been sold worldwide and with the release of Rayman 2: The Great Escape, Rayman Forever gives fans an all-in-one package of previous titles.
The titles contained in the compilation include Rayman, Rayman Designer and Rayman by His Fans. In the original game, you help Rayman fight the many freakish and hostile beings who are grabbing every Electoon in sight and try to fend off the strange occurrences caused by the Protoon's kidnapping. The game consists of an animated cartoon world with imaginative environments and uniquely designed powers for Rayman's use.
The other two titles are add-ons to the original game. In Rayman Designer, fans were given the tools and opportunity to create their own levels for Rayman as well as 24-new designer levels. In the new levels, Rayman must get through the levels that span six unique worlds, each with different traps, enemies and puzzles to solve. On each level or map, he must gather 100 blue tings before the Exit sign appears but often the way is blocked by obstacles that require a number of specific items in order to continue progress.
The third part of the package is Rayman by His Friends which is a compilation of 40 levels created by fans. Additionally, there is both a Mapper for creating or editing maps and an Events Editor designed to allow unlimited creation of new Rayman adventures. Finally, the game ships with a digital video on The Making of Rayman 2: The Great Escape. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
