||Decent backgrounds, but honestly. For only having 8 enemies in the entire game you'd THINK they could make them look decent. Okay, an extra point for Evil Fisherman Sammy, but that's it.
||Surprisingly good music, I admit. Too bad the voices in this game are roughly eight times as loud and much less good (assuming you've got MAME32 0.74). Just let yourself listen to the sound test and nothing more.
||The gameplay isn't any better than the graphics, more need not be said.
Okay okay, so I haven't talked about it once- here's an idea- you have absolutely no new non-boss enemies after stage 1. All of your attacks can be interrupted. Your special move takes off life depending not on whether you hit,
but HOW MANY enemies you hit (even though it hurts non-bosses a LOT, you can lose up to one-quarter of your life if you hit seven guys). ALL enemies after a while absorb insane amounts of punishment before dropping. You get no weapons.
The game itself is boring. The only thing it's good for is the sound test.
|Character design penalty: Minus 20000 points
||When I was seven, I used to have about the worst drawing skill of any human alive. When I can confidently say that my drawings from back then are far better than 90% of this game's
sprites, believe me, it's one helluva insult.
|Strange flukes in the ROM: 1
||I don't know how or why this is triggered, but sometimes the ROM just quits on me after a certain amount of time. Seeing as I am usually, for some reason, trying to beat the
game, I guess my computer is a whole lot smarter than I am.
|Proctologist visits by main characters: 1
||Just LOOK at Bobby's walk animation, and leave it at that, okay?
