Wikipedia article of the day for July 22, 2016

The Wikipedia article of the day for July 22, 2016 is Mischief Makers.
Mischief Makers is a 1997 side-scrolling platform video game, the first for the Nintendo 64, developed by Treasure and published by Enix and Nintendo. The player assumes the role of Marina, a robotic maid who grabs, shakes and throws objects in her journey to rescue her creator from the emperor of Planet Clancer. The game is presented in 2½D, with pre-rendered 3D backgrounds behind 2D gameplay. A 12-person team developed the game over two years as Treasure's first title for a Nintendo console. It was first shown at the 1997 Electronic Entertainment Expo and released later that year. The game's reviews were mixed: they praised its inventiveness, personality, and boss fights, but criticized its brevity, low difficulty, low replay value, sound, and harsh introductory learning curve. Retrospective reviewers disagreed with the originally poor reception, and several highlighted Marina's signature "Shake, shake!" sound bite. In 2009, GamesRadar called it "possibly the most underrated and widely ignored game on the N64".
