Mesopotamia is an original and cute platform game by Atlus. Player controls a weird looking creature that moves by sticking one of its end to walls, in a way similar to a caterpillar, or more precisely like those metallic string toys that can go down the stairs. The game is based on Zodiacal elements and counts twelve big stages with a nasty boss at the end of each of them. Many other weird creatures are also scattered around each maze and are there to stop the player. The caterpillar-like creature has an extra ring in its middle which can fire back at those annoying things. To increase the challenge a little, the player mush reach the exit of each time within a time limit. When destroyed, some enemies drop special power-ups, like extra life, shields, the priceless super-speed or bouncing-shots options.

Mesopotamia is an interesting and somehow entertaining platform game. The string like creature is very well designed and the fact you can also stick to the inside of the maze adds an incredible depth to the game. However, some stages are quite large and it is very easy to get lost and I personally hate the fact that boss fights are included within the time limit - This makes the game much too hard... I however love the super-speed option allowing you to more the tinny pink slug at super-fast speed through the mazes. All in all, you will probably have fun playing Mesopotamia, the game is far to be a milestone in video game history, but it features some nice surprises and a ‘one of a kind’ gameplay.
