Here is its eulogy, a collection of the kind words written about it while still among the living. They shall live on forever in its place.

EDIT [12/22/2010]: It's a well-known fact that the requirements of the 100 point medals are very difficult to complete. But don't get discouraged! It's possible to earn every medal. :)

Don't believe me? Check out these videos! (Remove any spaces that appear in the links.)
Ahnimal's game: http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=BS_TFYhqvsc
Stickman91's game: http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=2lVLMvcjcDE

At some point, I may upload videos for the other two games as well, but the two I've covered strike me as the most "controversial."

*****

Do you love destroying enemies with a turret? Have you an affinity for puzzle-solving? Are you enticed by the prospect of dealing drugs? Does dodging bullets and lasers make you feel great?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, you're sure find something enjoyable in this small collection of minigames. And if you answered "no" to all of those questions, you ought to give it a try anyway. :)

Each minigame in this collab was created with a big limitation in mind: Only simple shapes - such as squares, rectangles, and circles - could be involved in the gameplay. Text was also allowed.

Despite that restriction, four artists managed to design and create four entertaining minigames that challenge players in a variety of ways.

Enjoy!

By the way, constructive and honest reviews are VERY much appreciated. Expect to see responses to all of them! :)

Reviews

Drug medal is impossible... Always get caught while waiting for a day to pass in order to sell it over for a profit.

The others are hard but not impossible, in fact, the second (puzzle) is absurdly easy (it's just a simple puzzle...) and the defense can be dealt by 1-never stop shooting and 2- memorizing each enemy HP. Space shooter is hard and drug deal is impossible, or incredibly hard as it depends on massive RNG luck.

U In Stickman91's Space Shoot Even Sphere Boss Fires Beam At Ship!

Really hard, really, really hard.

At first when I looked at all the medals but one being worth 100 points I was like "ooh, nice, sweet medals to get"
But then I tried getting them, and I couldn't even get the 25 point one because I couldn't beat a few of them.
Nicely done, I love how it's just simple shapes making fun, addicting games.

The 100-point medals are indeed very challenging. But the difficulty shouldn't prevent you from getting the 25-point medal; all you need to do to earn it is select "Play All" from the main menu and play every game in the lineup; it should unlock after the last game finishes.

Anyway, I'm glad you had fun; thanks for the review!

Decent for a medal game

This was a good game, but it did get frustrating on several occasions. The hardest was the cocaine level where I did not even know how to lose! This was still decent because the other games were nice. My favorite was the first shooting game if only because it was the easiest. It seems like Newgrounds might want to have a section in "Games" devoted to submissions with mini games. The second one was simply impossible.

I guess there are some puzzle games I was never meant to solve. The cocaine level just feels like it could have had a lot more detail. I would like to get a walkthrough to learn how to fail just so I could get past it and collect a single medal! Most of the games were fairly standard and had a fair amount of detail in them. The music variety was good and I liked the choices.

<deleted> responds:

Thanks, glad you liked it! :)

In the cocaine game, you can only lose when a new day starts (i.e, when the coke price is updated), and whether or not you lose is determined purely by chance. The more cocaine you have at the start of a new day, the greater the chance you have of being caught.

Hope that clears things up!

Nice group of mini-games

This was a swell collab of fun little mini games,the concept of the games were simple yet very fun & addicting,i found some easier than others but the one that was very annoying was the drug selling one with me working the tactic of buying 10 grams than selling right after getting all the way up to $46,000 and then get busted all of a sudden and the next game getting busted right off the rip for just 2 grams after 1 day so it seemed very inconsistent with getting busted,the other 3 games were great & challenging in a legit way,overall i think you guys did a nice job on all your mini-games. :)

Awesome, thanks for the review! :)
