Description of Zool 2

Zool and Zool 2 are above-average 2D platformers from Gremlin that are quite obviously ri....err, I mean, “inspired” by SEGA’s best-selling Sonic games.

Instead of the quirky hedgehog, you control a similar-looking cartoon character: Zool, the “Ninja from the Nth Dimension” who must – what else—rid his world of an evil mastermind. Your goal for each stage is simply to collect goodies and beat the “boss” monster to progress. Although the premise is passable and the graphics are quite nice, both Zool games are unfortunately very repetitive: despite having a good number of levels (18 stages spanning 6 worlds), the levels don’t look very different from each other. Nowhere near as imaginative as Shiny’s Earthworm Jim, for example, although the monsters are quite imaginative. The games do have some neat power-ups (including one that gives you a doppledanger who’ll replicate your actions a few seconds behind), and nice variety in Zool are three hidden sidescrolling shoot-em-up bonus games, although they are very difficult and almost impossible to find.

Zool 2 is a much better and more varied game because you can control Zool’s female sidekick named “Zooz,” who can break grounds beneath her while Zool can only break ceilings above his head. This means there are 2 completely different paths you can take to finish the game, so the game is worth replaying at least once. They are also quite difficult games, but fortunately you can change the difficulty level to make life easier.

Overall, I find Zool games little more than a better-than-average title despite some nice ideas. They are decent Sonic-style games, but without the “just one more level” quality. Worth a look if you like cartoon-style platformers, but they are no Top Dog in my opinion.

The easy way to play this game is to use the "DOSBox Pure" core in the Retroarch emulator. Just load the ZIP file and you're good to go.

Zool 2 Atari Jaguar version resembles the PC version,only it's zingier and has the Amiga style sampled audio with game effects mixed together,Amiga ports are solid,ECS lacks background due to hardware limits,AGA has the full fancy scrolling backdrops and Zool And Zooz eyes blink,they also differ from Dos and Jaguar characters,which isn't a bad thing,Dos version has the adlib sound,just a shame there's no Atari ST port.

I don't understand why you can only choose between music & sound fx? Having both like the Jaguar & CD32 console versions would of been much better, I wonder if it would be possible to create some kind of custom music CD for the DOs version using sound from the CD32 version?

Here's the Amiga CD32 Soundtrack.

Very good platform games for the atari st and amiga. The ST version is very nice with its smooth scrolling levels. Well worth playing on an emulator if you like platform games and jumping about the great graphics in the game.
