I agree with Redazrael. I am down to just the robot and the tough guy. based on what the robot says I assume he is supposed to be used as a weapon. I can't find the command maybe I missed one but the only things that seem to work on him are splash and sploosh and nothing seems to work on the tough guy.
(SPOILER!) To defeat the others:
"Crash" the hobo and blue suit first
Chick with gun: "splash" robot then "crash" her
"Crash" everyone else.
That will leave you with just tough guy and robot. And the guy in the window whom you can click on but I can't get a bubble on him.
Yeah I have wasted enough time trying to figure this out. There are too many commands that do the same thing, and some of them don't make much sense. I think that the difficulty in this game is that you threw in a ton of useless commands with the 5 or so that you actually need. Otherwise I think it is fun. It could just be better. And I would really like to know how it ends, but I don't want to win by silly trial and error.
Thank you very much to you and to the others who showed interest in my "experiment".
Since you said you'd like to see the ends, here a couple of hints (SPOILER):
robot: you're right about splash but, just after using it, you should get rid of the guy who re-activate it...
tough guy: he's really tough, almost unvulnerable...but if you could fire?
good comic... maybe try animating next time
I really loved the concept of this game, and the art is well-done; very much like a comic book, and I love the addition of the text boxes. It took me a few tries to figure out what the 'help' guy did -- I kept trying to click him before the game actually started. I figured out the robot and the elephant on my own, but once I'm down to the robot, the toughie, the alien, and the SWAT guy, I'm lost. I haven't tried *every single command*, but it seems that whatever I choose, it's wrong. Is there a 'negotiate' command...? :p
Anyway, I really do like the game; I think it's an excellent concept that you've executed very well. My only complaint is that once you get stuck with certain characters, you have to redo the entire things over and over and OVER until you either figure it out or get frustrated and give up (which I did, after about the eleventh or twelfth attempt).
Perhaps if you could give subtle hints as to how to take down the more challenging opponents...?
Amazing games getting submitted today, this was brilliant, can't think of any other comic book words though, origonal idea well executed.
Original but needs work.
You have a very original idea here and I would like to see you do more with it. I think your biggest problem is that the gameplay is not balanced. Half of the enemies can be taken out by a simple punch. A few require you to try to apply the words to their intended effect and the rest are trial and error. Keep Trying!
