  • Abstract: BIG BANG SHOW

    Big Bang Show is an exciting and challenging game of skills featuring Albertus the mad scientist and his latest discovery, Sparkie, a bouncing ball of energy.

    For 1 to 2 players, Big Bang Show is a 2-module game package:
    - The "main module" is an arcade action game, with 100 screens and a rising level of challenge,
    - The "question module" is the Time Quizz, comprising 1000 questions on the historical periods the player travels through:

    Only when the player collects the right items, avoids the traps and answers Albertus' questions, can he hyper-space jump into another period. This requires reflexes, speed, knowledge and memory.

    More than just a game, the host Albertus adds warmth, humour and personality, presenting realistic adventure for the participants to experience.

    Big Bang Show offers a rich graphic environment, including computer graphics for all game screens, digitalized images to illustrate the five periods, video sequences for Albertus' appearances, a sound element for the sound of the ball in movement or in collision with objects, and an original musical accompaniments to the game.
