Zatchbell: Mamodo Fury for Nintendo GameCube
Based on the anime series Zatch Bell, Zatch Bell!: Mamodo Fury's single-player "Story" mode revolves around the tale of Kiyo and his mamodo counterpart, Zatch. Kiyo and Zatch are one of 20 human and mamodo pairs that are available for multiplayer action, and each group has it's own spells and special affinities. For example, Kiyo and Zatch prefer lightning attacks, but all pairs will use up-close, ranged, and barrier spells. In "Story" mode, Kiyo and Zatch explore their environment in a quest for royal awareness while battling enemies, unlocking bonus goodies, and leveling skills along the way. Players rely on Zatch's magic for most of the battles, however, Kiyo holds the spell book for Zatch and can be used for close combat if Zatch is out of range. In a "Vs." or "Arcade" multiplayer game, up to four gamers can get together for a two-on-two match, or a battle royal with each player taking on enemies. Cards will appear during a brawl that alter such attributes as life and size.
