UPDATE 05-14-2010: you can now CAPITALIZE up to 4 medals!

"Greek & Wicked" is an experiment like "Tuper Tario Tros." was, not a big game.

William started to think about the differences between old and modern games : what are these differences ? Mostly better graphics and sounds, but in term of game mechanics old and modern games can be very similar. So, what if we take modern games elements and reduce them to their most simple form to create a very old fashioned electronic game like a Game & Watch.

When we started working on it, Guillaume was playing a game that was the perfect modern and AAA game reference we needed : God of War.

We had some difficulties to finish this game, and in the same time daily news were (and still are) really hard too. We thought the fight of our little greek character against an invincible hydra was really close to modern fights. That's why William integrated a little scenario connected to recent european events.

FUCK!

Game over, again!

Ah, man. I love this.
It takes me back to the days before the first gameboy.
Game & Watch style games with the bleepy sound effects and the choice between two game-modes.
Seeing a good, popular game being remade this way was actually quite refreshing and original.
The controls were flawless, the game itself was challenging.
(I still haven't managed to beat the hydra seven times in a row, but it's the genuine frustration it creates that is part of the charm of the whole thing, if you ask me.)

In short:
Charming sound effects and graphics.
Fluent controls and gameplay.
Interesting depth through messages in between levels.
Challenging story mode and additional mode keeps you coming back for more.

Worth a 9.
Had to mark you down for making me rage so much.

God DAMN it.

(I'm never able to be brief. And for that, I apologise."

Oh, don't apologise :) We like reading interesting review, so thank you.
Killing the hydra 7 times in a row is quite challenging but not impossible.

Best graphics ever.

This is one of these games that needs to be sold in stores, not the horrible shit like Red Dead Redemption, Bad Company 2, or Lost Planet 2.

"Hilarious but the gameplay too repetitive"

I laught a lot when I discovered the game. The reference to old electronics games is a good idea. But the concept is too much repetitive to get all the medals. I killed the hydra wo times and that was enough. So I give a six...


SwingSwing responds:

Yeah, you're absolutely right about the repetitiveness, but it's the basis of an electronic game: it's repetitive :)
The only variation we introduced between the repeated killing sequences is the speed factor.
The scene became more and more tricky to complete in story mode. And the only reward is to discover more sentences between scenes and figure out that there is a message hidden in this simple "game".
