The 20th anniversary of Nintendo’s pocket monster license is proving to be a success and no wonder. ‘Pokémon GO’ is the sensation of summer, and the arrival of ‘Pokémon Sun and Moon’ at the end of this year will be a finishing touch. However, there are many more ways to join in the celebration, and the Uranium Team celebration has taken over nine years to complete.
As we have in VidaExtra, ‘Pokémon Uranium’ is an entirely original game made by a group of fans based on the first installments of the saga. But what distinguishes the game itself are its novelties.
Its artistic section is strongly inspired by the installments that appeared for GameBoy Advance, returning that wonderful mix between pixel art and zenith shots of the series.
On the one hand, an entirely new type of Pokémon is added, which is that together with the fire, electric, or ghost-type bugs, we can capture and train nuclear-type Pokémon. To this, we must add that more than 150 original species have been created for the occasion, and indeed many of these designs will fill the eye of fans of the license more.
In addition, the game adds more complex elements to the plot. The first thing that strikes the occasion is its setting, which is inspired by various locations in Rio de Janeiro. In addition, our protagonist will take the adventure as a job due to the plot context, leaving aside the innate passion of the previous games.
The game is fully playable from PC and can be downloaded from its official website; the download file occupies about 263 megabytes, allowing the combat and exchange of Pokémon through the internet. I cannot say if the initiative will manage to go beyond this weekend, especially on the issue of trademark rights, but the work of the Uranium Team is commendable.
