Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

From the creator of Mega Man and Ghosts 'n' Goblins comes Tombi.

You must help Tombi, a prehistoric boy with a skill for jumping platforms, swimming and generally escaping from trouble, as he attempts to save his beloved homeland from the dreaded Koma Pigs.

Tombi must locate special items, which he can utilise to clear a problem area or remove threats ranging from wind clouds that block the path, to troublesome birds that attempt to grab you. Of course, Tombi wouldn't attempt this heroic deed unarmed, and utilises a powerful ball and chain to knock out approaching enemies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't knock this until you've tried it! 4 Sep 2005
By A Customer
This is an exceptionally rare game to find these days. I picked it up second-hand about a year ago after playing Tombi 2 (brilliant game!). Looking at the screenshots, you'd think that it was a kid's game but the story and gameplay is up there with the best of RPGs. I know that the bubblegum graphics may put a lot of hardcore RPG gamers off buying this but its a nice gap filler between now and the next Final Fantasy or Grandia. The 2D aspect takes some getting used to but you'll soon grow to love it, especially as Tombi can jump between the foreground and the background of the screen (as can your enemies). The music is quite nice and appropriate, although it doesn't match the orchestral heights of Nobuo Uemetsu's scores in the Final Fantasy series. If ever you find this - BUY IT! You definitely won't regret the 30 or so hours of your life that it'll take up. (By the way, you also need this if you want to fully complete all the missions in Tombi 2).

5.0 out of 5 stars Pink is the new Black 23 Jan 2010
By Gunny
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Known as 'Tomba' in the US, Tombi was one of the most understated and overlooked RPG/platformers from some thirteen (woah!) years ago. The story follows a young, pink-haired wild boy in search of his grandfather's lost golden bracelet. To do this he must go through hell and high water to battle the 'Seven Evil Koma Pigs' who have an apparent facination with golden objects. Wacky? Most definately, but such is the charm that this game brings!

The gameplay is 2D and follows the basic platforming principles of running, jumping, collecting, swimming, swinging, killing bad guys, and helping talking monkeys find their pants. All in a day's work, eh? The RPG element of the game comes in the shape of events that help you go from one stage to another. Tombi stores all the items he collects (in his stomach!) and you are able to use them at specific points to help you advance, solve puzzles and aid friends.

The visuals on this game, I have to say, are absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful, strong colours form the backdrops of forests, jungles, villages etc. The music is also a big thumbs up. I still end up humming some of the tunes from this game when i'm out and i'm sure you will too. Very catchy, and suit the scenarios wonderfully.

This classic game is very family friendly and is most definately a great ice breaker for anyone new to the gaming world. The length of the game is relatively short - however, hunting for all the different items and clearing all the events makes up for this, and whenever you replay this game, you normally discover things you didn't realise the first time around. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tombi 13 Aug 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Although I have never played the full game (As I have it only on Demo disc), It has to be one of my favorite games. Yep thats right! I've probably played the demo more then any other of my PS1 games back when I was young.
The game is about a small pink-haired boy, who live in the wilderness. Everything is going good for Tombi, until the evil swines come and take Tombi's bracelet (which belonged to his gandfather), after he tries to fight the pigs away. In search for his grandfathers bracelet, Tombi must travel into the village, and on the way make new friends and help them out.
In my opinion, Tombi is a great game. With it's colourful anime styled graphics, and exciting storyline. Anyone can enjoy it!
This game is definatly worth looking out for at car boot sales. ^_^

5.0 out of 5 stars Tombi 7 May 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this game is SO good. it looks like a kids game but it really isnt. i dont own the full game but the demo is really good as its so long and you can get quite alot done. i'm still looking for a cheap second hand so if you own one and want to sell it please tell me :] its almost impossible to get a new one now and if you did it would probably £200ish probably more expensive than CastleVania Symphony of the night (which i do own and approve of HIGHLY)

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS GAME! 3 May 2006
By Oz
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first played Tombi when an hour-long demo was given away with the Official Playstation Magazine. It hadn't been released in the UK then and I waited patiently, never to actually succeed in finding it; now aparantly it has been practically discontinued and is damn near impossible to get hold of. It's such a shame because the bright colours, cheerful music and highly amusing gameplay is unbelieveably addictive and enjoyable. You play a little pink-haired cave-kid who is out to find his grandpa's gold bracelet that was stolen by the Koma Pigs (the bad guys) who are collecting gold everywhere and spoiling the natural beauty of the land. Sounds like kids stuff but I promise, anyone who plays this game will get hours and hours of delightful enjoyment.
