Reviews for "They Live: The Game"

Brother, lifes a bitch, and she's back in heat.

me likey.

I love the game, but I thinks there is a bug, maybe it's intentional but when I leave the bank and the black guy start talking, suddenly Nada get killed off screen and the old man speach start, then I learn that I died and I have the death penalty.

It's kind of frustrating cause I go all the way up to a 5K score and then I end up with a 250 score.

Anyway, very good tribute to rowdy and to John Carpenter and nice gameplay feature with the combo system.

To those that say you are having trouble getting money, keep these tips in mind:
- leaving the bank before getting killed removes the death sentence point subtraction
- putting on the sunglasses and killing guys builds up the combo meter
- the enemies cannot go all the way up the available space for you to move, meaning you can camp out at the top of the screen and wait for the enemies to get close, shoot them, and then quickly move back to safety.
- the resistance upgrade allows you to wear the sunglasses for a longer time period, giving you the chance to build up a bigger combo.

And to you Deathink, very well done. Once I figured out how the game worked, I had a good time. It was small and simple, but effective. I only wish that there was more content available or that it was side-scrolling platformer. I also liked the control setup (not too many games have such a control scheme. It was also smart to have the "use glasses" option at W instead of the other buttons, as the others are ones you'll need for instant combat and dodging, while the glasses can be put on in safety before charging out. I also liked the spacey, retro music and sound effects. Really looking forward to your next release and again, great job!

This is really fun! At first it was a bit grindy, but if you take the time to earn a couple upgrades, you get used to the controls and the where to take cover.

I guess my only critique is that you can sorta herd the aliens into the corners on the far right and left sides depending on where you roll around. I can rack up bonus points by just continually herding them into a pile and blasting them -- but maybe that was an intentional thing.

EITHER WAY NICE WORK - your games are brutally challenging but they're awesome.

Those that haven't seen the movie yet, go see it. It's a fitting tribute and you'll probably love it, it's a classic.

And for those who say the game is too hard... here are a couple of pointers:
- The aliens/enemies can't go upstairs/behind the column/behind the desk. Use that to your advantage;
- Combos are only possible with the sunglasses on. Beware, though, you can only wear them for so long before you get dizzy;
- You can avoid the penalty for dying by simply leaving the bank through the door. Beware of the glitch, though: you can still be killed while leaving and the static is playing. Leave if you're sure you won't get hit OR there are no enemies in the entryway.

Once you learn all of this, the game becomes much more enjoyable and even easy. Very nice tribute IMO. Rest in Piece, Rowdy Roddy Piper.
