Canis Canem Edit - Minigames

PS2 Feature | PALGN goes back to school.
After a short break, we're now back with the final segment of this Canis Canem Edit cover story. We've got three more articles taking an in-depth look at specific aspects of the game. Today we examine the minigames in Canis Canem Edit.

Bullworth Academy prides itself on rigidly sticking to the curriculum at all times. If anyone is caught for consistent truancy, severe punishment will follow. The esteemed staff of the Academy, though occasionally questionable in their recreational habits, ensure that the pupils have a firm grounding in the key academic subjects. Alongside the strict principles of loyalty, trust and ruthless ambition that are ingrained in every pupil in the academy by the principal Dr. Crabblesnitch, core subjects include English, Gym, Shop Class, Photography, Art and Chemistry. Each subject comprises a series of five tests that ought to be passed with flying colours. Of course, on passing each test, a due reward (in the form of gameplay features) will be earned by the player. Bullworth Academy’s educational system is facilitated through a host of mini games to accompany the main storyline of Bully.

Chemistry: Chemistry classes involve the creation of complex chemical compounds through intricate button combinations pressed in a timely manner. Through the school year, Mr. Watts will test students in the lab, with good marks earning them the formula for items such as firecrackers, stink bombs and itching powder.

Art: Bullworth Academy imbues students with as much hunger for cultural pursuits as they have for academia. Art classes provide the students with the skills to produce works eligible for adorning the most prestigious of gallery walls. Such works are likely to impress those who have a taste for the finer things in life. A refreshing take on a much-loved classic puzzle arcade game fits the bill perfectly for this class.

Gym: Gym class is the perfect arena for Bullworth Academy students to develop the grit and determination needed to claw their way to the top of the pile. The highly finessed and easy to use combat system is gradually unlocked through some serious wrestling matches and passionate games of dodge ball.

Photography: Advanced photography techniques can lead to Jimmy being equipped with the latest technology to take snapshots all over Bullworth town and increase his ability to take photos for the school yearbook. That, and there is always a great photo op around Bullworth; it just needs to be found.

English: With 30 years of teaching under his belt, Mr. Galloway feels confident enough to let his classes run themselves through challenging word scrambles from which the player must create as many grammatically precise words as possible to expand his vocabulary.

Shop Class: Only by understanding how machines function can we truly grasp their value to humanity. Focusing on the mechanics of the BMX, keen attendance at shop class can amount to significant improvements to one of the player’s prime modes of transport.

Just judging by these features it seems this game is just going to have so much to it, the funny thing is only a few months ago we knew nothing about it and now it just seems like the game is going to take through Summer to complete everything...

What premise? Free roaming sandbox game from the creators of GTA? Minigames, living breathing world and fun minigames?
