i escaped school for this
Thank you so much for making this fantastic game, everything from the funny tone, the incredible plot twist, the simple yet memorable and funny characters, the simple art style and, the perfect ending makes this one not one of my favorite games, but of my favorite Newgrounds series of games.
One of the best things about the Riddle School games is its humorous tone and this game lives up to it greatly with bright, yet not overly contrasting colors. Its tone is also supported by great jokes like the alien sports pizza fanatic and Phil's criticism of the Eat-D Cream-E Cook-E poster and as others I won't spoil.
The game-play of this series hasn't really changed that much, for good reason, it works. This game follows the usual point and click adventure format of clicking objects to collect them and using them to solve puzzles and progress. What makes this fun is the puzzle solving aspect it brings to the table, you'll always be looking around attempting to solve puzzles that are hard yet not cryptic. The game does this by leaving clues for some of the more difficult puzzles.
This game's plot has always been very simplistic with Phil at school, attempting to escape and this game also has the simple plot of aliens abducting Phil and his friends to power a lazzer to destroy Earth. At the end of the game their is an fantastic plot twist that puts a new layer of intrigue to a straightforward story. (I won't spoil it!)
Another great thing about this game is the characters, Phil the lovable protagonist, Smiley the only kid who actually enjoys school, Zach the kid who is always cold and, Phred, Phil's best friend who hates school and always does the least he can in life. These characters in this game remind me of the book Sideways Stories From Wayside School, like this game it also has one-note gimmick characters, but I digress.
Overall this game series has been an incredible experience, and I suggest it to anybody who hasn't played it.
Why Isn't there a reset Butonn For the puzules
I've always loved this series and this was a great conclusion. I don't know why i didn't give it a review until now. Love your work man.
Great game, a nice "end" to a great series. SHARK!
