Reviews for "They Came From Nam"

Fun time sink with to little to do.

The game itself is fine, I feel like if you had a week to fully flesh this game out it would be something really cool deserving of a front page mention. Maybe some upgrades health pick ups or whatever.

For a 72 hour challenge this is just about what I would expect, just a bit above average I'd say. Not that I could do better.

The black birds are a bit ridiculous for a second level enemy, but whatever.

All and all this is a great game, and of the challenge games this is the only one I'd actually like to see fully fleshed out at some point. Good job.

Thanks for breaking the bad review streak! :D

Not bad...but I have played better.

For something that was started from scratch and completed in 72 hours it's not bad. Don't know why people complained about needing a mute feature since I personally liked the sounds for the game. Despite how generic the "story" is I fell the game could have been better if you had more time to work on it.

Manly-Chicken responds:

I agree with this review.


It functions. It's nothing entertaining enough for me to play it more than 5 minutes and never really have a desire to play it again. It doesn't matter wheter it took you 72 hours hor 72 months, this game isn't very fun. The sad thing is that it's on the front page. It's just a bit boring and I don't know how you could really improve it.

But I suppose you did all you could in 72 hours with the basis of a giraffe Rambo Jesus killing Vietnamese paper airplanes. What a weird concept.

Manly-Chicken responds:


this game sucks

for an example to make a good game in 72 hour go play cows anttena co

Manly-Chicken responds:

And why does it suck?

This Game Is So Good At Being Shallow And Boring!

It gets four lousy giraffes out of ten, and what lousy giraffes they are.

This game is as generic as they come, and despite trying to hide it behind the ridiculous (and un-imaginative) story, fails at being anything more than a freshman's computer programming final.

first off, the whole animal schpiel is getting old, I'm already used to it, so trying to seem original by throwing a giraffe in there isn't working, even if said giraffe shares his likeness with a certain Big Boss. The name is also quite dumb, Sgt G Rambo Jesus? really, you should work on a name for more than three seconds.

Then there's gameplay, oh the gameplay is so mediocre, so mediocre it hurts to think about, and the bosses are garbage and I hated this game sO i'm just done writing

bottom line it gets a four out of ten because it may suck, but at least it works, but other than that, it has nothing going for it.

Manly-Chicken responds:

:,( you do realize we had to do this from scratch from a random idea in 3 days, right?
