2022/09: Trip World (E) (Game Boy) - TerraEsperZ
« on: August 31, 2022, 08:13:37 pm »

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to TerraEsperZ's Trip World (E) (Game Boy) maps.

In Trip World, peace is maintained by the presence of the Maita Flower on Mount Dubious, where Yakopoo and his grandfather live.  One day, shadowy beings attack Yakopoo's grandfather and steal the Maita Flower, causing Trip World's inhabitants to quarrel.  Yakopoo uses his shapeshifting abilities to traverse five worlds to recover the flower and restore peace to Trip World.

This game, however, never made it around the real world, as it was only released in Japan and Europe.  That means many of us missed out on this great Game Boy platformer, with gorgeous graphics and sweet music, created by Sunsoft in their prime.  Thankfully, TerraEsperZ has captured all of Trip World for us to appreciate visually.

The game is similar to Gimmick!, another Sunsoft platformer from the same year that North and South Americans also missed out on - which TerraEsperZ also mapped!

(Some Trip World trivia: Yakopoo also appears in other Sunsoft games, including Galaxy Fight - as a "mirror match" opponent - and Blaster Master Zero 2.)

So to recognize the effort put into sharing Trip World with the world, TerraEsperZ's Trip World (E) (Game Boy) maps will be known as VGMaps.com's Maps Of The Month for September 2022.
