Coma – Weekly Flash Boot #1!

Coma

“Coma” is a flash game that has a strong [knytt-like] feeling to it. A bit more linear in terms of game flow, yet, with quite the atmosphere, almost equal, kind of. I would have been really fond of the game if it wasn’t for various little disappointments:

My lunch is ready, but I have no TV!

I don’t really mind if a video game doesn’t have an involving plot. However, what I’ve learned from this game is that I really dislike it when games try to play around the plot with that aspect in mind,all in all while trying to set up a stage for something completely uncalled for. From my own perspective, I would have enjoyed this game a lot more without the dialogue, only the mere sounds from the characters alone.

Day and night, the Bunneh Men from the Depp Webb are stalking me!

A little after the start of the game, you are bound to reach a part that will test your platforming skills. How many tries would you need to make that simple jump? One? Two? Five? I don’t know! How does the whole jumping initiative works in this game? No,really! How? Regardless of position or running momentum, I haven’t found a single clue as to why sometimes my character gets to jump higher and sometimes lower. Honestly, it was not all that much of a problem, but it really mislead me into thinking that I might be missing something in order to progress. I guess I did! My ability to recognize a bad jump control![?]

Coma DONE!

My girlfriend is trying to learn how to cook a Jalapeño…

Onward! Yes! Set me that sweet, creepy atmosphere and ruin it completely with those dumb writings all over the place! This game has its instances of going a bit over the edge, without the particular need, really.

The thing about games that try to give us a feeling of uneasy and creepy is that they are a one-shot bravado gun. Their result is solely based on the success or failure during the first player run. Any replay value is lost, without additional new fresh content, which happens rarely. And still, even with that, there is a limit as to how long you can pull the strings until the doll drops on the floor and mutters:

“Ugh!”

Despite giving this game 4.5 out of 10, I do not really hate it! It’s likeable, but it needs fixes to grab me. However, I am not the only person existing on planet Earth, so there you go!

177 – Special Valentine’s day event! How cuddling and hand – holding saved the life of my pet fly Humphrey!

How could I even say “Yes” to her? She might have stared at me in disapproval with her chestnut-brown dark eyes, but it was me who was truly disappointed! If she is unwilling to travel to the center of the Earth to find my corpse and mourn about my death, I am not really expecting her to fight the giant cyborg-monster later either! I mean, come on! “They” put a lot of effort into stealing and using my brain to bring that pile of garbage into motion! Then again, it’s just easier for her to close both eyes, sigh and go home! That won’t solve anything though! If anything, she is bound to keep her title of being an old lady that nobody likes, let alone LOVE! What awaits her within’ the burning depths of her hellish home is just more dirty underwear all over the place and week old popcorn,scattered like a pack of sheep on the floor.EXTRA BUTTER!

Her cat is not even going to come and greet her! The cat is death. It killed itself because it hated “her” so much! It was to be expected, as suicide cases tend go in high numbers around people who can’t acquire all 200′ “chests”. Yes! That’s right! You go and look at yourself in the mirror! Who can admire those disgusting slabs of meat-flesh, mainly your “Adventure Island” pair of eggplants?! If you think that you have a sexy legs and a nice ass, then I have news for you! You are absolutely right! But one can see just as much at the stare of the vile Medusa! “Hello, Medusa? I’m sorry about earlier… How about a cup of coffee and some “Jason X” tonight?” is what she thought I would say. And I did.

177-done

There is a hook and bait for every fish and fish for every bait and hook. The reason why you are alone on Valentine’s day is because you value the life of every fish and you would rather let them back in the water. I won’t though! They might drown!!!

Happy Valentine’s day everyone!

Toilet in Wonderland + Some rambling regarding exploration RPGMaker games in general

toilet

This is a game that I played a few years ago and I remember enjoying it a lot! I had great time with it back then and I was even willing to name it the best exploration RPGMaker game that I’ve ever played! However, my whole opinion on it changed when I decided to replay it for the LR19’s vault. It downgraded to a certain extend,  enough for me to remove “Toilet in Wonderland” as a potential “the” top-ranked title in that genre. I would say, this game is good at giving great first impressions, but it lacks an actual replay value. Don’t get me wrong, I think this game has a lot of good pointers – Enjoyable and fun cast of characters, fitting soundtrack  and neatly built worlds/maps overall. It’s solid regarding the requirements needed to be covered for an exploration game to be a blast! But you know, a blast does not long last! As much as I like the macho-butt man and walking around collecting laxatives, the obscure jokes and events won’t have the same effect on me as they had the first time. Perhaps I’ve grown out of my butterfly shell and became a simple worm.

A worm residing underground who wanders in the darkness around.After a certain time it manages to craw out of the ground.An illuminating light, then perhaps, a fitting reward called [death]. Otherwise, back to the darkness it goes! If I had to describe what “Toilet in Wonderland” lacks, which other games of the same genre have, then this is it! As stupid as it might sound, this is my ultimate opinion regarding what a good exploration RPGMaker game feels like.

I was pretty impressed that this game was made in just few days. It also got second place in some RPG Maker make game make Japanese event. Overall, this game has flavor for tasting, so please, by all means, try it out! Even if it has recycled sprites from other projects, even if its plot about curing constipation sounds silly, for all you know, it might just end up being your thing!

Personally, it was my 7.1 out of 10 game…
