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.

cool but short

Is this inspired by the pocket Mario bros game (the one where you have to make packages in a factory)? The style is really cool.
What i don't understand, i did the story mode, beat the level, and just started the same level over??? That's kinda weird. If there would be more variety this would have a 9/10 or so, now I'm giving it a 7.


SwingSwing responds:

The Game & Watch games are "repetitives", so is this game :)

interesting experiment

To really get a good feel of if the mechanics a the same or different this needs to be longer, at least have a level leading up to the boss. Aside from that its a fun and it seems very little has changed from the previous eras, in regards to boss fights-- at least.

nice

Reminds me of my childhood ;)
I think the difference between old and new games is, beside the better graphx, that todays games always "HAVE TO BE" in 3D and are less creative.
Be hones to yourself: in modern days not much is left of good old Commodore-creativity.

Oh, and a bit more hint what to do in this game would be cool.


SwingSwing responds:

Oh, we are not that pessimistic :)
Modern games are great too, and some are really creative.
