Gals Panic – Gamer Zone
To talk you about this videogame we´ve to go back a few years ago, and to give a review to the Arcade nostalgia. Those times when every bar or food store owned an Arcade among their usual furniture. Tobacco smoke that hides other not better pleasant scents, and finally a crowd of youths (as me), which thronged around one screen with a joysticks on which we wasted a few coins we´d stolen to daddy… and how we enjoyed!
Now, with the Internet, it´s easy to enjoy those ancient videogames without the need to put an euro in, and thanks to MAME (to not initiated, the initials of Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator), we can beat up these Arcades in the Pc without limits.
Gals Panic is one of these arcade which besides issuing the typical fun of else game, adds an extra “hot” attractive. The game is enabled both for one as two simultaneous players, and apparently with a simple goal, we´ll find many troubles to complete it succesfully. Based on another videogame called Qix, owned by Taito group, dated from the year 81 (so you can imagine about the rudimentary of its graphics).
Gals Panic added improved graphics than its predecessor and youthfully japanese girls which were making lighter their clothes as were completing the levels. At the initial menu, we can choose among the different levels which belongs with the sweet face of a student, a secretary… you can choose. Inside the game, each player has a diamond of a colour in each top of the screen, and in the beginning, we only can view a silhouette at the bottom from the girl we have choosen. Our target is to draw the girl´s outline avoiding to the round´s main enemy, a monster which can kill you in the proccess. While we´re drawing the outlines, which non visible base is getting form and colour, and when we reach 80% completed, the level ends and we can see the whole girl, and each time with less clothes on. When we end three times the level (each one with a different enemy), we also pass the main round, and the game rewards us showing now the real model´s photography behind the painting, this time without any clothes covering her, and a insinuating voice that shows gratitude for helping her to get naked.
The game also has had many sucessors. In “Splash!” we have a similar gameplay, but instead little diamonds, we control a paintbrush which colours the girls (this time explosive blondies), and they also can shoot to the enemies, but with the same spicy aspect which makes you melting a bit while gaming.
