Back in the early days of Nintendo, they released a franchise called the “Star Fox series”. These games are headed by Fox McCloud, a highly-trained ace pilot that is set to protect the galaxy.
One of the popular games in the franchise is the Star Fox 64 Game for the Nintendo64. I will talk more about this game in this article.
The story of the game begins when Andross, the game’s main antagonist, was driven to madness. Because of this, he nearly destroyed a planet using his biological weapons.
Due to Andross’ actions, General Pepper commanded that he be exiled to a remote planet called “Venom”.
Andross was silent for five years but after that period, there is a strange activity that was found on the planet.
General Pepper then assigned the original Star Fox team, headed by Fox McCloud’s father, James McCloud, to investigate what’s going on in the planet where Andross is being exiled. James is accompanied by Peppy the Hare and Pigma Dengar.
Upon their arrival on the planet, Dengar betrays James and Peppy, prompting them to be captured by Andross.
Peppy was able to escape Andross but she leaves James McCloud behind because she cannot find the means to release him.
In his last moments, James wants Peppy to tell his son, Fox McCloud, about his fate and that he is proud of him.
A few years have passed and Andross is already carrying out his plan to rule the Lylat Systems. General Pepper then assigned the new Star Fox team consisting of Fox McCloud, Peppy the Hare, Slippy Toad, and Falco Lombardi.
Their mission is to go to the different planets in the Lylat Systems and stop Andross’ Henchmen. In fact, Andross also employed the aid of Fox McCloud’s nemesis, Star Wolf.
After defeating Andross Henchmen, Starfox and his team went to Venom to see Andross and to put a stop to his evildoing.
Star Fox 64 Game for the Nintendo64 is a 3D Shooting game featuring Fox McCloud and his Starfox team.
Most of the time, Fox will be in his trusty ship called the “Arwing”. During his time in the Arwing, players are presented in a corridor-like interface wherein you can control the Arwing and navigate it towards the end point of the corridor.
In the “Corridor Mode”, players will have to reach the finish line by also maneuvering the Arwing and dodging any obstacle that comes in your way.
If there are enemies present in the scene, you can also deflect enemy fire by using the Arwing’s “Barrel Roll” ability in which the Arwing will roll forward immediately to avoid getting hit.
During the course of the game, there are certain power-ups that you can get. Some of these power-ups are smart bombs, shields, wing repairs, and laser upgrades.
Also, on a certain level, there are three golden rings that you can get. If you are successful in getting the three rings that are present in that level, the Arwing’s shield gauge will increase by a bit.
Join Fox McCloud and his crew to stop Andross and his evil plans. The Star Fox 64 Game for the Nintendo64 is a great and enjoyable game for all ages.
