The premise behind the HAL-developed Pokemon Snap is simple: Players roll through 3D environments (on rails) and try to snap the very best possible pictures of various Pokemon characters. The game features seven big levels and more than 60 Pokemon.
Adding strategy to the process, players need to accomplish a number of different tasks before certain Pokemon will respond and pose for the camera. For example, in the game’s Beach level, Pocket Monster Snorlax sleeps peacefully as players cost by on rails, unable to take a decent picture of the giant Pokemon as he rests on the ground. The only way to wake Snorlax is to play him a song on the Poke Flute, which isn’t attainable until much further in the game. Therefore, players must build points, advance a few levels and grab the flute, at which time it’s possible to come back to the Beach, play the flute for Snorlax , wake him up and snap an award-winning photo.
