Daxter (video Game) - Gameplay

Gameplay

Due to his new job, Daxter is now equipped with an electronic bug-swatter, which acts as his melee weapon, and an extermination tank, which sprays bug spray (Which many have been confused with Green Eco) to stun enemies. The tank eventually receives several modifications (which can be activated by pressing the left and right directional buttons), including doubling as a type of jet-pack that allows Daxter to fly, flamethrower capabilities, and an ultrasonic attachment. The flamethrower modification allows Daxter to hover higher and longer in jet-pack mode. With the ultra-sonic attachment, Daxter can shoot a projectile resembling a blue grenade that causes high radial damage, but uses one fifth of the player's maximum bug spray. When the player finds a small space where Daxter's normal stance cannot squeeze through, the player simply presses the triangle button for Daxter to crouch. The game also features levels where Daxter navigates vehicles to move around massive areas quickly. The player can also double-jump in order to reach great heights. There are also minigames in the game called "Dream Sequences" where Daxter lies onto a bed, and dreams up remakes of famous scenes of movies such as Braveheart, The Matrix, Indiana Jones, etc. The Dream Sequences also give you either leveled-up health, or new fighting abilities. A sub-game also is included, called, "Bug Combat" where two insects (one of which you acquire in the game) do battle, each with special abilities. You can also acquire items for Daxter in the game by winning Dream Sequences, or destroying pictures shown in hidden areas. The player can also climb certain areas by using Daxter's ottsel abilities. Daxter can also ride on a zipline, jump onto a trampoline to reach great heights, jump from netting to netting and enter portals to other areas. There are also the traditional Precursor Orb collectibles (1001 in number), which unlock videos about the game. The game also has a new collectible known as the Golden Bug-Gems, which can be acquired immediately when you kill a bug, excluding the bosses and Haven City termites. His health can be regenerated by receiving health packs, and the extermination tank's bug spray can also be regenerated by absorbing Green Eco.
