Super Broque Monsieur: Blitty Hunt is an upcoming Mario spinoff game for the Wii U, and a spiritual successor to Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, as well as the first game in the Super Broque Monsieur Series It follows the adventures of Broque Monsieur and his faithful pet, Broggy, as they hunt for a rare Brock species called Blitties. Chronologically, this game takes place before Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.
One faithful day in P'illo Island, the protagonist, Broque Monsieur, and his pet, Broggy, are taking a walk in Mushrise Park when they hear from Brickle, the proprietor of the park, that a rare species of Brock called Blitties are being found all over P'illo Island. Broque, fascinated by this new species, decides to go to P'illo Blimpport to take a blimp to Mount Pajamaja, where the species is being found.
Upon arrival, Broque and Broggy scale the mountain, and at the top they find a whole litter of Blitties. Beside himself with excitement, Broque decides to take a Blitty with him as a pet. However, a large screw-like monster captures the Blitties, with the desire of eating them! When the monster makes his way away from the mountain, Broque, with the help of Broggy and his new pet Blitty, whom he named Blitsy, must stop the monster from hurting the Blitties before it's too late!
Blitty Hunt is a very interesting puzzle game. In the levels, the player is faced with a large grid of different colored blocks, and enemies on the top screen. Using the Wii U GamePad, the player has 5 seconds in each turn to tap as many blocks of the same color as possible, to attack enemies and advance through levels. Enemies can set attacks on the player by doing things like dulling out blocks, altering the grid, and even preventing Power-Ups to be used. Power-ups like Fire Flowers, Vacuum Blocks, Snack Baskets, and even the legendary Dream Stone can be activated either when they randomly spawn in the grid or by buying them using Coins. Coins can be obtained by getting a high number of blocks in a turn or by defeating enemies. Each level must be completed within a certain amount of turns, or else it's Game Over. Some levels have other objectives, too, like having to get a high enough score.
On the right of the grid is the Bonker Meter. The player can fill up the Bonker Meter by breaking blocks in turns; the higher the block amount, the quicker the Bonker Meter fills up. When it reached to the top, Broggy appears under the meter. By tapping him, he suddenly appears on the grid, slamming down on it and breaking all of the blocks in the center, which does massive damage. This attack is called a Broggy Bonker. Use it wisely!
The basic gameplay mode. Here, you play through either a randomly generated puzzle or a puzzle done in the Story Mode. You have access to no items or boosts, and your goal is to finish the puzzle's requirements as fast as possible. The time is recorded onto the Wii U system. These scores can also be spoken about on Miiverse.
|Broque Monsieur||Our favorite French-speaking block is the star of the show! Broque is an aspiring collector, and jumps at the first chance to find the rare Blitties. He's very protective of the species, considering the journey he par takes in to rescue them from Torkscrew. Make sure to match the blocks for him to win the Blitties back!|
|Broggy||A cuboid Brock dog, and the faithful, rather rough pet of Broque. While he looks and acts threatening, he's really a big softie; after all, why else would he have a giant bandage on his back? By raising the Bonker Meter, Broggy can pull off a Broggy Bonker to help take out enemies in a snap. Use it well!|
|Broque Madame||A female, French brock, and Monsieur's love interest. She decides to help Broque save both the Blitties and Pi'illo Island from danger. Before a puzzle, for 50 coins she can "make a prediction", in which she tells you which power-ups are helpful and what strategies are helpful.|
|Blitsy||Broque Monsieur's newfound pet Blitty. Blitsy is very sleepy, and is often found snoozing inside Broque's bag. However, he is very determined to rescue his siblings. If the Blitsy Blitz Power-Up is used, Blitsy will run across the grid, taking out an entire row of blocks. If more of his siblings are found, however, more rows are taken out.|
|Blitties||This cute Brock cat species is a whole litter found in game. All of the Blitties, with the exception of Blitsy, are captured by Torkscrew at the beginning of the game, and must be rescued by Broque and co. When more are collected, it can be used to power up the Blitsy Blitz Power-Up.|
Each of the supporting characters (with the exception of Popple) have their own "missions", tasks the player can perform to gain extra money, items, and even special prizes!
|Boss Brickle||The gruff proprietor of Mushrise Park. He bosses all of the other Brocks around, but he really has a heart of gold. His missions are incredibly simple, but have an incredibly low pay. But then again, that's expected.|
|Kylie Koopa||An aspiring Koopa photographer with a big ego. Her missions are incredibly basic-like, for example, defeating certain enemies-but each mission has its own unique twist that makes it either a large pushover or an infuriating challenge.|
