Glover is a 3D platformer developed by Interactive Studios and published by Hasbro Interactive for the Nintendo 64 and PC, and by Atari Interactive for the PlayStation. While the N64 and PC versions have been praised as good games, the PlayStation version was critically panned.
A wizard rules a kingdom through his castle. He makes potions with the help of 2 magical gloves. One day, one of the gloves shakes the wrong potions, and when the Wizard puts it in, the mixture explodes, making the gloves fly off. One flys out the window and the other one flies into the potion, which turns the wizard into a statue. The glove that fell out the window is named Glover, and after finding out the green crystals started to fall, he turns them into bouncy balls and all of them land in the different worlds. The other glove in the potion, was Glover's brother, turned into an evil glove named Cross-Stitch, and he wants to stop Glover.
Why It Sucks
(NOTE: This only counts for the PlayStation version)
- Poor FMV opening. Not to mention it is somewhat different to the rendered intro seen in the Nintendo 64 and PC version.
- Horrible graphics compared to other versions of the game.
- Long load times which were also absent in other versions of the game
- Clunkier Controls
- Runs slower compared to the Nintendo 64 version.
- Mr. Tip is replaced by simple hint areas.
- Aiming the ball (No matter what type it is) is a pain due to the poor controls.
- The new intro does give us a glimpse that Glover's Brother started the events of the game on purpose (He shook the potion with an evil look on his eyes, and then winks at the audience when he is on the Wizard's hand.) instead of the wizard accidentally putting in the wrong potions in in the Nintendo 64 and PC intro.
- Reuses the remixed music from the PC version of the game.
