PostSubject: Rayman Series   Thu Oct 14, 2010 10:02 pm

Rayman 1 is a platformer and the first game in the series starring Rayman. It was originally released in September 1995 for the Atari Jaguar and the MS-DOS. Two months later it was released for the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn. It was supposed to be on the Sega 32X, but it was canceled.
The evil Mr. Dark steals the Great Protoon and defeats Betilla the Fairy. The Electoons are scattered around the world and Rayman must find them and defeat Mr. Dark. The Magician helps out Rayman during the journey by offering special minigames. Tings are collected for extra lives and new powers are earned, such as using Fists and The Helicopter. There is some speculation as to whether or not the setting of Rayman and of Rayman 2 are the same, or even related.
edit Development

Originally the plot of Rayman was very different. Many magazines had things like: Join Jimmy, a 10-year-old who escapes reality by entering Hereitscool, a fantasy kingdom he has created within the realms of his computer. When an evil power takes over Hereitscool, Jimmy becomes Rayman, a super hero who must save his friends before it's too late! But it was scrapped for obvious reasons, and Rayman is his own being in his own world in the final version. There were a few comments in the story, such as "Sorry folks, this appearance can't last. Do you want to play or what?", but they were cut for the final version. It is because of this game that Ubisoft is as big as it is today.
Rayman is a traditional side-scrolling platform game. The object of the game is to free all the Electoons and defeat Mr. Dark's minions across five worlds: Dream Forest, Band Land, Blue Mountains, Picture City, Cave of Skops, and Candy Chateau.[1] Only when every Electoon is freed will Rayman be able to enter into Mr. Dark's hideout in Candy Chateau.[2] Otherwise, the player must traverse the levels and reach the goal (a signpost with an exclamation mark on it) at the end. But usually, since all of the levels in the game are divided into several parts, said goal post usually acts as a transition to another part of the level.

Scattered around each level are little blue spheres called Tings. If Rayman picks up a hundred of them, he gains an extra life, but they can also be used to pay The Magician, and enter a bonus stage. When Rayman dies, he loses all of the Tings he collected.[2]

As well as Tings Rayman will come across a variety of other power-ups and bonuses, among which a golden punching fist, a faster punching fist, power to restore Rayman's lost life energy and flying blue elves that will shrink Rayman down in size. This is one of the most best rpg games out behind legend of Dragoon and more.
