I want to thank EVERY SINGLE PERSON who emailed me supporting Bob from the day he was released unto the world early 2005, right up until the release of this remake; also not forgetting those who've played, commented and voted for it here on NG. You're the reason this game exists, so give yourselves a pat on the back!

I hope you all enjoy playing the game as much as I enjoyed (re)making it, and be sure to comment and let me know what you think! I do try to reply to everyone who posts a coherent comment.

Also, if you liked the game and think it's worth a buck or two, please go ahead and click on the 'Donate' link in the title menu, or the advertisement in the preloader, and help feed a starving indie game designer :D

really good



Rated 3 / 5 stars


I'm going to be honest here, the game wasn't all that great. It was somewhat fun to play, but had little replay value, due to the monotonous manner in how the game is played. There were also some potentially game-breaking glitches. For one thing, I noticed that I couldn't parry the heavily armed enemies in combat, unless you intended for this to be, in which case I think is utterly ridiculous. I also found that on some occasions, after a while of fighting the heavily armed red soldiers, I couldn't damage them; my sword became obsolete against them. Also, when I got too close to some of the normal enemies, I found my shield useless, as I'd still take damage from the enemy's attack on those occasions. And sadly, I didn't need much of a reflex response to parry the normal enemies' attacks. All I had to do was spam the attack button, and that made my character bound to parry 80~90% of the attacks.

It was an OK game. But you could improve upon these faults in the gameplay.
