So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Job Island Screenshots



Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced Job Island – a stunning collection of mini-games set within an umbrella theme, which has been created by Hudson Soft and will be released for Wii in March 2009.

Job Island was formerly known as Hard Working People, but has been renamed following the huge success of Hudson Soft’s similarly-themed Sports Island, which also used the concept of fun-orientated mini-games to such good effect.

A series of huge meteors are heading to Earth, and only the diligent, hard work of those enrolling for Job Island can save it! Only by raising cash by being successful at 50 jobs, can the player buy the items needed to prevent the meteors from ending all life as we know it. Thus, with three game modes on offer, Job Island steps up as one of the most ways to save the planet that you are ever likely to see!

In Story Mode, the player is charged with taking on a diverse range of jobs and out-performing those around you to accrue money. Players browse the in-game ads to find jobs they are interested in, with careers ranging from body-building, cooking, cameraman, ER Attendant, deep-sea explorer, stunt person, make up artist and so on. Each chosen profession has three difficulty levels and enjoys a dedicated sub-game where players compete against friends, with the most successful awarded the day’s pay.

These earnings can then be spent on items to further enhance your chances in later career choices – uniforms, useful items, etc – or to put towards the anti-Meteor devices needed to save the Earth. Job Island thus becomes a tough juggling act, with later stages adding ever-improving players out to win the money, while the pressing need to destroy the meteors acts as an ever-present time limit.

Job Island enjoys the same quirky, ever-entertaining gameplay of its sister title Sports Island, and demonstrates Hudson Soft’s skill at producing fun, competitive games for the family. The two-player game will see friends go head-to-head, while a series of Training modes allow users to hone their skills in the various career paths on offer. A total of 30 mini-games are accessible in the single player mode from the beginning, with more challenges being unlocked through the Story Mode.
