Screen Shots


Squashed is a platform game starring Maru, the loveable ninja character that has appeared in other Jaleco games, most notably the Ninja Jajamaru series. He was thus the only character at Jaleco's disposal that could conceivably be developed into a mascot to lead a successful series. Maru's appearance was fleshed out for this game; for instance, his size was increased and his cuteness was turned up a notch compared to previous games. Maru was ready to take on any new worlds, enemies, and gameplay techniques that the game's designers could dream up; however, instead of crafting a new adventure, Jaleco took the easy way out and liberally borrowed ideas from other successful action games.
