fun times!

Good platformy goodness - I mean, I'll have to do forever without being boss or king, but after getting everything else I can say this is a lot of challenge without being so crazy that I want kill you. My least favorite feature is how I keep hearing the double-jump noise right after I jump once and realize I'm going to die because it decided I held the key too long or something. My second least favorite feature is that no matter how well you do, some places the worm catches up anyway, which is like punishment for doing well in the last little bit. But mostly those only affected levels 17 and 18.

As for the name - I don't understand the comments which are like "why is called that?" Why the frak not? The name won't change your enjoyment of the game. The total non-sequitur ending which "explains" the name was random and funny and a reminder that sometimes story isn't going to change the game's fun... some games are about story, but usually they aren't platformy shooters where you can change your face dozens of silly faces (which blows away any concept of your character consistently "being someone").

I really liked blasting things with the laser. I didn't get the point of the golden gloves, though - by the time you can get them, you only have one slot to fill. The skeleton gloves were much better since they stack with the freebies, so basically they mean, "never have to worry about powerups again, because you're pegged at 3 whether you live or die".

Going back and getting the coins with the acid boots was fun - the levels are so much easier with top equipment that even 17 and 18 were breezes to run through, which is part of the ingenious design. So, congratulations.

Wow, thanks for the in-depth review! The gloves you're talking about were implemented before we had the power orbs in the game (so you lost all your powerups each time you died). I guess we forgot about them!

Also, laser gun + fast fire + lotsa enemies = :D

Discount Mayhem

First and foremost, "hard" is a severe understatement. This game is a nerve-punishing test of willpower. It gives very little wiggle room, and as it progresses it tightens down further and further on you.

Most developers are entirely unable to pull of "ultra-hard". They make it hard not via intense challenges and situations but via stilted or even broken game design. Somehow, you pulled it off. This game is slick, intricate, simple, tricky, challenging, terrifying, energetic, exciting, and visually splendid.

The level of polish on both the art and the controls is fantastic- love and effort were put into both to make this a genuinely gleeful run-and-gun time trial. It works. With virtually no story and very little reason, Discount Mayonnaise is regardless an absolute gem.

The music, while somewhat standard, fits perfectly with the panicky frantic nature of the gameplay. It is typical, but it works here exactly as needed.

I award this a well-earned 5/5 and 10/10 for creating one of the most blatantly entertaining titles to hit this site in quite some time.

Thanks! I agree with you - games with "cheap" difficulty are annoying and I don't play them for very long. Games with tight controls & challenging level design are much more fun and rewarding
