There's not too much to say about this one, but it's not as hard as you might think. You don't even have to think about the puzzles that hard, they can all be solved very easily, and it's not like a rubiks cube where you can get really close to the end, but if you mess up you have to backtrack, for this game, you can get really far and even if you mess up, fixing it is extremely easy.
I gave it a 5, and it almost deserves a 10/10, but since the puzzles weren't that hard, I feel like there should have been 2 more. But perhaps there will be a sequel?
I'm not sure what to think
It was interesting, I think some people think the main game is deeper than it actually is. It should be obvious to everyone that this is how a desk job works.
However, there are interesting parts to it; like the homeless man taking you to the cemetery, "where it's quiet". So I followed that by jumping off the building, so I could be where it was quiet. To my surprise, I woke up again the next day, but then I decided to go to work with no clothes on, I was fired and woke up in the morning and my wife had left me. I went to work again with no clothes, to see what it was like there, but the place was empty, presumably went out of business according to the graph, but then when you keep walking right, you see something strange, I'm not sure if it is existential or an out of body experience, or what? I'm not sure what to think...
This is fantastic!
I just stumbled upon this game while going through the other mounds of crap on here, and oh my god it's amazing! It really makes you think and use your brain in a way that it is not often used for.
I'm not sure what to say, it's just great; although there are some problems with me knowing the shape but forgetting the word for it, lol. But it's not much of an issue yet, I'm at level 47 right now and I think I'm just going to bust my balls until I beat it.
Totally amazing and what an idea, hats off to you.
This is a great game, and people should have no problem winning even on hard (I recommend playing on hard, you get some pretty cool cheats that way, and then you only need to play through once), because I believe that hard in this game is easier than the standard mode in Gnomergeddon.
Here's a small walkthrough for the bosses:
The Mage Master: IMO he's the hardest one because there is no set in stone strategy for him. I recommend picking up one of the powered up weapons earlier in the game to help beat him (throughout the first part of the game I used a sword +15, then later picked up a blade +20 poison), just hit him over and over with a fast hitting weapon to make sure he can't let out any attacks.
Every once in a while he'll summon some fist gnomes or some meteors. The gnomes are no problem, and they'll usually drop a health power up to help you out; the meteors are pretty hard, you can sometimes see the shadows of them before they drop so you can avoid them, but if you are too far up on the screen, they'll blend in with the background.
Anyways, just keep hitting him and you'll win eventually.
The Boar: He's extremely easy once you know how to beat him. Just dodge his first attack and he'll go off the edge of the screen. Now go down to the very bottom and wait to hear him trampling towards you, now go up to the top of the screen and walk either left or right, he'll pass you and throw a spear at you (which you'll have dodged from moving). Pick up the spear and wait for him to come trampling by again, he'll usually appear after 4 or so 'tramples', if you know what I mean. Throw the spear at him to stun him, and now pick up your weapon and start bashing him, you can keep hitting him when the boar rears up, but before his hooves hit the ground, jump up and away. Go back to the bottom of the screen & repeat.
The Freak: Very easy as well, start off by picking up a piece of fruit (make sure you're far enough away so he doesn't OHKO you), throw the fruit at him, now pick up your weapon again immediately and run at him and get in as many hits as possible. He'll jump up, and appear on either side of the stage (the one you're farthest away from) and start charging at you; sprint towards him and then jump over him. Rinse & repeat, he is very simple.
The Gnome King: The second hardest boss, but he's easy as long as he doesn't OHKO you (he will if he jumps on you). Start off by running back into the room you came from and hit some of the jars & barrels, an invincibility power up should be in there, run back and get some free hits in. Once invincibility runs out, keep hitting him for a bit and let him hit you to charge up your rage meter; when you get low on life, go back into the other room and pick up another invincibility (ignore any ordinary healths you see for now), run back and start hitting him. Whenever your rage meter fills, make sure to use it because you're invincible then as well. Just keep doing this over and over again, and make sure not to get jumped on (he doesn't do it that often, so it's not much of a worry); you'll defeat him eventually.
Hopefully that wasn't too long or too boring or too hard to read. Anyways, good luck with the game, remember; play on hard!
P.S. It was a great game.
The controls are unbelievably crippled
The game itself is very good, but the controls are unbelievably crippled. The hardness does not come from the challenging jumps or mind bending puzzles, or even the memorization of patterns, it's just that you move WAY too much. The second level of the salt factory in particular suffers from this, because if you tap the left arrow key for .0001 seconds, you'll die from the salt on the right, and if you tap it for .00015 seconds, you'll die from the salt on the left, so you have to hit it for .000125 seconds, and then steer to land properly.
It's an excellent game, but level 15 is glitchy, you can't go anywhere near the left boundary or you loose control of the paper clip ball. Besides that, it's an excellent game.
Pardon my review on your other game, I don't know why, but that one doesn't work for me.
This one however did, and was very good. Although then again, I switched to firefox instead of using opera, perhaps there is a problem with this game running on opera?
Anyways, very good, I liked mixing the potions the best :)
What the fuck?
This game doesn't even work, I did what I thought I should do, but it didn't work. I then tried again twice, but nothing was working, all I could do was pop the cuccoon, squish the berries, and click the tongues, but that was it. I was puzzled for like 15 minutes, then attempted your walkthrough. Wouldn't you know it, I did exactly what your walkthrough says to do, and I also attempted various other methods, but nothing works, whenever I click on that asshole reemus, he's just like "Hmmm... I have no idea what you want me to do..."
What the hell? Is this just some kind of bug? I can't even progress through this at all, I dunno what's up.
You didn't list this as a bug, so I'm letting you know about it, but damn, it's quite a big one.
I thought it was great
People who say it gets too hard too fast, I agree, it is hard, but only really the second level. The levels should be changed into this order (roughly): 1, 3, 4, 5, 2, 6, 7.
Anyone who can't beat it must be 7 or something, because it's really not that hard, in my opinion, the only hard level is the second one (the sixth one is too, but if you can beat the second, you can beat the sixth).
I thought it was refreshing to see a new type of defence game that is actually a challenge and requires some thought instead of just placing any tower anywhere. the awards system was quite clever too, and they're very useful (especially the rewards you get for getting stuff to level 10).
To those having trouble with level 2: place a bunch of cannons really close to your castle and make sure to take advantage of their range and the way the paths are shaped in the level.
To those having trouble with level 1: play a different game.
It was a great game, and you are able to play effectively right from the start.
I liked the story, the art was good, the notes were funny, everything was great.
Although some things were odd, some weapons were clearly better than others, though you unlocked them earlier.
Best weapons: Uzi, Shotgun, Barrett (Pardon the spelling).
Were there any secrets? If so, I did not unlock any. I was gonna see if there was a secret if you beat the game with 100% health, but I was reloading my gun when a fat-fast person came out, I was able to shoot them once before they hit my gate, but they survived the barrett and hit me once.
It was a great game though, truly deserving of #1.
