WTF?! I SPENT THE LAST FEW WEEKS TO CREATE THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE AND NOW ONE OF ITS MAIN PROTAGONISTS IS SIMPLY DEAD? THANK YOU USA, YOU SCREWED ME OVER!!!
.
SO HERE IS WHAT THIS GAME IS ABOUT:
.
"Have you ever wanted to be a terrorist like the other cool kids in school but didn't have the money to catch a flight to Pakistan? Well, your trouble is over because this is MUJAHEDIN (the game) - the first online recruitment program of the Taliban! So make your diploma now and be the bomb! (literally)"

One mission is not enough

OK, I live in Pakistan and I get the jokes in it, but this game could have been better.

A few corrections:

It is Allah Hu Akbar. If you do not know what it means, it means, "The God is great". Basically Allah is arabic for The God.

Secondly, spelling of Alcohol is wrong

Thirdly, If Muhammad did actually know what Taliban are doing, he would probably disown them from the religion.

Finally, the 72 virgins is a myth, no reality attached to it.

I however loved the art, but the moving animations were a bit clunky. It would have been better if the guy tripped on something and he went kaboom, and you had to jump over it. Similarly many obstacles before he actually reached the US compound

Geez, it's satire. No need to feel offended.


If you praise Allah inside the building, you automatically teleport outside.

rather ironic

that the games release was the night before osama died, anyway i think this game was more of a joke than an actual game. if this was supposed to be an actual game than please report this as abusive



Well, look at the bright side.

With the official announcement of Osama Bin Laden's death all over the news, at least your game will get plenty of visits.
Both good and bad scores...more or less...And alot of Osama is dead competition...
But hey! Look at the bright side...um...err...Allah Akbar!

SCORE: 5/10 & 3/5
Funny dialog +1
Funny death scene at Allah praising +1
Shortness of game -1
Lack of controlled abilities -1 (ie. No shooting, jumping, grenades, ect.)
Base 5/10 +2 -2 = 5/10

PS: Maybe you could make a game thats actually about the Mujahedin fighting the Russians during the 80's.
Maybe a skinny Afgan with an old rifle going up against tanks and helicopters. lol



An Attempt At A Non Biassed Review...

Ignoring all the controversial game content for a second... the game itself is TOO SHORT.

Too bad because I was hoping for a puzzle type game where you have to destroy the most bases/soldiers in a certain number of steps or something. ENTER key could have forced the nearest enemy to shoot at you, but based on your positioning maybe shoot a barrel or something, so a little bit of strategy involved. Good concept, just not taken far enough.

I like the certificate, but again not reaching it's possible potential. Should have gone to <game content into consideration now> heaven or something, because your character gets what they wish for in the end. Or maybe just hell, so you can make a statement about terrorism.

Speaking about statements... I understand your point of doing satire but that alone won't shield you from your creation. You missed a chance to say something a bit more here... story could have been about a kid trying to get to <insert controversial country here> and taking terrorism lessons and in the end goes for the final boom! But maybe it was his own brother on that final base! :O OMG TwIsT 3nDiNg! I'd play that on my phone...

But still on a technical/coding level, it was good. Visuals were pixel perfect, nice effects and it's a short but fun distraction in the end... I replayed it a couple times even but that's about it, not memorable so 4/10. I'd like a sequel... make it Osama's ghost guiding this young grasshopper or something. Lol!

good ideas. too bad that i suck at programming. for example: i thought about placing a banana peel on the street that could make you slip and die. but then i didn't know how to make it possible to let the player jump.

the next thing is, i didn't want to make it deep. i rather wanted to make it stupid. but thanks for the long review.
