Odell Down Under (W16)
|Odell Down Under|
Odell Down Under is an educational game that takes place in the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia. You control various forms of sea life all the while hunting for food, avoiding predators, and trying to remain healthy. The game includes a lot of information about a wide variety of ocean dwelling flora and fauna. Unfortunately, you experience everything the game has to offer in a matter of minutes. The game is a sequel to an earlier MECC title, Odell Lake.
Rob Wallace composed a nice Caribbean-theme soundtrack for the game consisting of eight songs and one fanfare.
Although Wallace wrote a unique song for each major section of the game (as seen from the titles in the metadata of the MIDI files), the developers chose to take a less-calculated and rather sloppy approach to the music. When playing the challenge, tournament and practice games, you must first pick your fish, so the music plays the information song. The first stage of each of the games continues the information song, even though there is a special song for each. As the player advances to the next stage in the challenge and tournament games, a random song is chosen. The select a fish song is not played when you select a fish, and the Level Promotion fanfare is not played when you complete a level.
