In Tonic Trouble for the Nintendo 64 you take on the role of Ed, a bumbling alien who spilled some mysterious Tonic on the ground and must now clean up his mess before the trouble gets any worse. Not only are harmless vegetables being turned into ruthless killers, but the Tonic can is now in the power of the insane Grögh the Hellish!
In order to make amends, Ed will have to traverse 12 3D worlds to solve puzzles, find his way through mazes and dungeons, and survive lava canyons and cliffs. Each world also has a specific objective, from collecting six stones in the Canyon to sliding down the Ski Slope without falling off. Along the way he'll have help from Doc, his girlfriend Suzy, and the mysterious Agent Xyz.
Ed can also use his blowpipe (refillable with bees found in beehives) against enemies, fly using his bowtie, explore under water, and even bounce his way out of trouble with a pogo stick. By stepping on a chameleon stone, Ed even has the power to transform into various creatures! Find a popcorn machine and Ed will change into Super Ed, a much stronger persona to turn the tables on the bad guys. He'll need all the help he can get against Grögh's awful Helling Guards.
Ed can also pick up extra lives and Mercury Drops to increase the points in his life meter. Grabbing ten Thermometers will increase his life bar one segment, up to a maximum of 14 from its starting point of four. Doc has some requests as well: he needs Ed to find various objects in order to build devices that will give your hero special powers. Additionally, if Ed collects 80 percent of the Antidote icons, he can access a bonus world.
Players can save their progress and come back to the game later if they have a Controller Pak inserted in their controller. Tonic Trouble requires at least 41 free pages in order to create a save file. It should be noted that the game does not include support for the Rumble Pak or Expansion Pak peripherals. ~ All Game Guide
