LOL the box have copies of E.T. for atari
it gave me a fuckin head ache
This game has some small issues (I caught several errors in the dialogue and I think the code could benefit from some refining and optimization), but overall, I love it. The plot and technically-oriented gameplay are very appealing, as are the visual style and soundtrack.
I appreciate the difficulty level - it's challenging, but not to the point of frustration. Some of the level designs are quite creative and perplexing at a glance (the game definitely lives up to its name), and the ongoing communications between the player, scientist and bomber make the experience even more engaging (not to mention humorous). The boss fights are a welcome break from the puzzles, but I very much like how they all require a bit of strategy and thinking ahead nonetheless.
As I mentioned earlier, I think the code could be improved upon. Everything seems functional enough and I haven't encountered any game-breaking glitches, but different levels run at markedly different speeds depending on how many and what type of objects are present in them. The computer on which I played is somewhat dated, but considering the graphics (only raster images to which relatively simple transformations are occasionally applied are used as far as I can tell) and gameplay (it doesn't look like there are any particularly code-intensive operations required), I imagine it's possible to make everything run significantly smoother through adjustments to the program and game structure.
Having played through the entire game only once as I write this review, I feel inclined to go through everything at least one more time to see the other side (literally) of the story and try to pick up on details I may have missed during my first run; I think I'll happily do that not too long from now.
All involved in this game's production did a swell job; the fruits of the developers' labor are almost as sweet and juicy as the fresh, green grapes I ate yesterday.
Thanks for the very thorough review!
Update: went through a fixed all the typos I could find
This game kinda reminds me to time fcuk
Too hard, and it hurts my eyes. There's a reason the gameboy color was invented.
