In the PS2 Digimon Savers game, Daimon and Agumon lead the cast of characters with Fujieda teaming up with her Raramon and Tohma is coupled with Gaoman. The original storyline in "Another Mission" follows the adventures of the heroes as they tackle the machinations of the Seven Great Demon Lords. In Digimon mythos, the Demon Lords are comprised of Digimon which represent the Seven Deadly Sins of man: Envy, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Pride, Sloth, and Wrath. Players start the game with Daimon and Agumon who are trekking around on a sunny island where dangerous enemy Digimon roam and attack in randomly generated encounters. The first battle is against a purple tadpole. «NCS G-Notes»
The game mechanics are fairly routine with players controlling an airborne hero who battles wicked generals which are all capable of morphing into mighty demonic alter-egos. The "O" or "SQUARE" button blows out shots while the "X" or "TRIANGLE" button swings a sword. The sword may be used to reflect and deflect enemy shots right back at them for a added bit of strategy and high scoring tactics. «NCS Game Notes»
● Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, Uryu Ishida, Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado,
The sequel adds four more fighters as follows:
● Byakuya Kuchiki, Gin Ichimaru, Toushiro Hitsugaya, Kisuke Urahara
for a total of ten fighters at the outset of the game. Bleach 2 features a standard 1-on-1 fighting where players choose a fighter from the aforementioned 10 possible combatants. There's also a 13th Corps Team Division mode where one fights through the ranks of top shinigami captains and lieutenants. The shinigami use Soul Cutter sword attacks as well as Kido or magic spells to topple foes. Before each battle, the camera pans around the surroundings to give an idea of where the encounter is taking place. Chain combos are available where a sword slash is followed by more sword slashes or a punch and a kick. Chain them close enough together and the game will keep track of how many hits have been dealt. For those who need a little help with which combos are available to a character, press the "START" button and then highlight "Combo List" to view the special attacks. Guarding in the game is automatic - stand still and your onscreen champion will guard against all oncoming physical blows. «NCS G-Notes»
Enterbay's debut product series BRUCE LEE Game of Death utilizes its proprietary newly designed BL-1 type body. The main objective of the newly designed BL-1 body was to simulate the actual muscular physique of Bruce Lee while the aesthetic representation of Bruce's physique is important, during the design and development phases, the consideration of a harmonious balance between representing the aesthetic and the joint-articulation of the BL-1 body was essential. All the BL-1 bodies are individually serialized with matching numbers along with the certificate and the packaging.
Enterbay also made the revolutionary effort in designing the Interchangeable-Eye System (IES). The design eases the control of the eye placement by simply removing the hair unit. Enterbay also went through extensive research to replicate the most accurately represented models for the accessories. The Nunchaku and Shoes are both made from realistic materials to enhance the overall realism. The bamboo stick (Bako) and the adjutable bracelet which Bruce wore in the movie were also replicated, along with a laser etched wooden diorama for display.
