Finally, my entry for Hidden Jewel 2 is done. (TWEWY is abandoned at this point.)
Background: Mischief Makers is a 2D action platformer made by the best video game company, Treasure (also responsible for Gunstar Heroes, Wario World, and Stretch Panic). You play Marina, a robot trying to save her creator, Dr. Theo. To do this, you traverse platforming puzzles, compete in the Olympics, and ride a flying ostrich while dodging missiles. The game is weird. Super weird. The makes use of a "Grab and Shake" mechanic, by which Marina grabs objects, and can shake them for various purposes. This can make projectiles stronger, propelling yourself forward, and grabbing and throwing enemies.This mechanic is really funny (The signature "Shake!, Shake!" is amazing) and dumb, but it's so ingeniously used in the game, you can't help but love it. The game received mixed reviews upon release, but many reviewers have retracted those reviews and stated that the game is masterpiece, and it has gained a cult following.
