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.

"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".

Very clever, not so fun..

I thought the game was unique and clever although as I'm sure you observed from other reviews, people get bored of it quickly. 5 stars for the creative metaphor, idea and pleasant presentation but not entertaining enough to get any more than that and at the end of the day that's what games are all about.

P.S. In Solidarity with our Greek comrades!!!

Dear Romeomustdie:
Why do you believe this game is such a huge insult to your country of origin? I say country of origin because you claim you are Greek but you have the ignorance and short-tempered attitude of an American. Did I nail it? Anyway, the creator of this title was not insulting your culture, he was making a political statement. If you are not aware, Greece is in a state of civil unrest because of the debt that is being made the responsibility of the working people. Debt that was accumulated through the irresponsibility of the Greek government in loaning money from the EU and in dealing with organizations like the International Monetary Fund. This burden is being placed on public services that the Greek people depend on. That is where the comments on "capitalism" come from that were used in the game. The characters in the game were taken from a console game, "God of War", which is based off of Greek mythology. Hence, The Hydra (Capitalism) is killed by Kratos (The Greek people) but then regenerates itself and once again rears its ugly head! Pretty creative metaphor, huh? You see, if anything, the creator of this game was honoring the Greek people and showing his support and solidarity with the people of that wonderful country. Those people that would be ashamed for you to be counted among them. I just thought you would like to know that you are a fucking moron. Maybe next time you should consider doing some research before you let hateful, nationalist bullshit spew from your lips.
Sincerely,
The motherfucker that just put you in your place.

I really don't get who this game is "attacking" it's just a god of war parody in game and watch style. Some of you people are way too sensitive.
The game itself was....pretty boring.
