Spectacular. Super simple concept and artwork, and yet it flowed perfectly. Excellent fitting soundtrack that was just lighthearted enough to go along with the sillyness of the story, and yet not be so annoying that it made you want to shut it off. Gameplay was fluid and responsive so I never felt as if i was fighting the mechanics in anyway that would detract from the overall story and idea.
I cant stop thinking about this game.
Its just so damn sublime and perfect. One of the few games where the story was truly an integral part of it. Everything made sense, and with the twist at the end was given more profound meaning. There was the perfect amount of challenge, the pacing was flawless, the music fit spectacularly, and everything just felt right.
As if my carpal tunnely wasnt bad enough you had to go make this game that makes my hand hurt as well as cause severe dizzness. Wish there was something a bit more to it, some flash lights to add seizure to the list of side effects.
Was laughing my ass off
I found the biggest challenge was to stop laughing at this thing, made it hard to concentrate. Nice fresh new take on an old genre that was becoming stale. The extra weapons were kind useless though.
Buggy, and I'm not just talking about the bees
The animation and artwork is the best part. The music is nice but does get a bit repetitive after a while. However the biggest flaws is in the gameplay. I have no problem with the game being simple in concept, just run and jump over stuff, but when even that simplicity has bugs and glitches it gets annoying.
There are times where getting hit is unavoidable. Some of the cacti you don't even have to touch, you just get near and get hit. Certain pickups are too low on the screen and cant be grabbed. And in nightmare many of the health packs dont do anything.
While the med packs in nightmare instantly draining your health to 1/3 is fine, but cheap, its annoying when they dont even work to heal you.
Fun as hell
Great physics, really fun. If you are planning on future installments i would love to see more destruction and violence, as well as bigger rocks that can really smash the crap out of stuff.
But the controls took a hell of a lot of getting used to. Also the bright flashing.... everything... made seeing your character rather difficult at times. Other than that its one hell of an amazing game, the physics and controls just need a bit of tweaking.
The graphics are simple yet work perfectly. The difficulty is spot on, not to hard that you get pissed off and give up, but not so easy you just run through the game. The story is great, nice take on the classic tale, the twist at the end really had an impact. And the soundtrack, flawless. The music set the mood and intensity just right and the 8 bit bleeps and bloops fit the overall look perfectly.
Excellently executed. Amazing idea that really forces you to think outside the box. Its just way to short. Just as i felt i was getting the hang of it, it ended.
Screw playing this in two player....
I found that its much more of a challenge to try to do it all by yourself. Really flexes your brain. And when you do it right it feels like you are one of those guys who can write different words with both hands.
