Amazing game, remember playing this back in 2010. Love bringing back memories
sorry the kickstater didnt work out
This game is a classic for its time. Despite having the appearance of a shittier-looking version of Dick Figures with less color, I kinda love it for being just that simple. It compensates its simplicity and short gameplay for giving this feeling of uniqueness through its humor, its dialogue, and Johnny Rocketfingers himself.
Johnny here acts and experiences the world around him in a way that makes him one of the most unique characters I've seen in any story, despite this game looking like an ebauche. He acts and talks serious like he's good at everything, even though he can screw up at times, which I can compare the similarities to Mai Minakami from Nichijou.
Because this game is a simple point-and-click adventure, bugs are, as I theorize since I'm too friggin lazy to test EVERYTHING in this game, virtually nonexistent, so that adds another star.
The story meanwhile is simple and linear. Whatever dialogue you choose, it doesn't affect the story that much, even if you either have the prostitute suck Johnny or make him go to sleep. The way it ended is really funny, because Johnny gave the prostitute the wrong child (I don't even know if that abomination is even a child) and took the money from the aforementioned prostitute and left.
Overall everything in this game is entirely perfect in its own in my opinion. It's both unique and excellent. I hope Johnny Rocketfingers 3 gets released, sorry if I couldn't pay you but I hope it will get released. I also got the message about JR3 from you via DeviantArt.
Keep it up.
Thank you for the thoughtful review. Unfortunately JRF3 will never be made if funding is unsuccessful. I don't know if people are realizing this or taking it seriously. Only 15 days left to make this happen and we are only at 36% of our goal.
Just relived this game as I'm going through all the oldies on Newgrounds. Still as good as i remember first time round :) yeh!
haha oh wow, i can't believe i didn't find this before, amazing art visuals and gameplay!
