Would be better with female boxers in my opinion, but otherwise it's an overall improvement!
I actually really like this game (My inner masochist is showing, but whatever)
The only thing I would change is the lack of count outs and TKOs. Maybe make the fights shorter by decreasing the starting health and stamina.
Besides that, if I was the developer and not you, I'd make this women's boxing instead, but again, that's the inner masochist coming out.
Anyways, all that aside, I like the game a lot. It's not realistic or a simulator, but it's good.
I quite enjoyed this game.
The only problems were that A) These fights seem to go on too long and B) That often times the blocking feels awkward.
One thing, and I feel disgusting just for saying it... I lost because of the jiggle physics. Not a bad thing, keep that shit up!
Wow. Just... wow.
This game is the bomb, for real.
The story, great. Gameplay, great. Length is iffy, but still, great!
I'm telling you now, if you're reading before you play, do not pass this up, this game is definitely worth every star I'm giving it. Yes, this one of two fives I am giving, and I don't really review generously.
I cannot tell you much in the way of story, but you get lost in the woods, which means either rape, murder, or creepy sh*t is going down, and I can tell you, you will love every second of this game, if you're into this kind of stuff.
Personally, I'm not one for 8-bit games, but this is a great 8-bit. My only gripe was with the fast running enemy towards the end of the game, it was hard to get past, took me a few tries before I realized what I was doing. After that all the other mistakes were my own.
One thing I loved was the music, and how it degraded in tone throughout the game. I was actually so creeped out by the music towards the latter part of the game I had to turn on an 8-bit version of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" to keep with the theme but not scare myself.
This game is a perfect example of how video games are art. No other game I have played has even come close in terms of "Art-ness"
Don't miss out even if you don't like MLP, just know what a "cutie-mark" is, and listen to Thriller in 8-bit when you're scared.
TL;DR : Simply Beautiful, 5/5, best non-shooter I have played.
This game is very good. Not the greatest ever, but it does well for itself.
First off, if you played the Last Stand before, you'll notice this: This game does not follow the Last Stand formula of staying in a fixed position waiting on waves of zombies, then scavenging for supplies. I do not see any resemblance to the other Last Stand games besides art style. Not worth losing anything in the ratings, but just know it's not what you think if you are familiar with the Last Stand, but that does not mean it's worth passing up.
Now, for the game itself, I was personally not blown away, but I didn't hate it either. The side scrolling is definitely not in my formula for a good game, but it does well for itself here. Along with the side scrolling you can enter buildings, which are often either empty in terms of items, or full in terms of zombies. If they aren't full in terms of zombies, just be careful where you step, and always make sure you are close to the door. Also do keep an eye on special items which you can find around, like special weapons or quest items.
I dislike the companion system. I was actually pretty upset when my companion(s) died, and I couldn't revert to an earlier save. With RPG type games like this, you can feel responsible for the deaths of a companion, I know that's how it was with Dogmeat in Fallout 3, I would revert to an earlier save. Also, if you pass up the opportunity to have a companion, you are not allowed to recruit that person (Which could be good for their sake.) But still, that option should be available.
Another gripe is that the mission specifics... are just not specifics. I cannot even finish the game because I can't remember what was said, and cannot have it repeated to me. The flashlight has no purpose except to attract zombies, and when you are over-encumbered, it's not like Fallout where you can't run, you can't even MOVE, which is frustrating as I cannot carry a weapon to a equipment box for later use because it's "Too Heavy." I understand that heavy things are hard to carry, but if we're trying to shoot for a good realistic experience, which is what this game seems to be striving for, don't do that, plain and simple. Sleep is also hard to come by, because you have to venture out of your way to find a safe-house, and then you may get mauled in the process.
Now, of course, there are many things that are good, it has a great story, and a wide variety of items. If only I could carry them all...
Don't pass up this game though, play it first and see if it's your cup of tea. I went out of my way to play this and I wasn't to thrilled with it. It doesn't live up to the other two games success/ fame.
TL;DR: This game is good, but it may not be that "perfect" game for you. If you want a great zombie game, play the earlier Last Stand games, they seemed to offer much more to their titles.
I am actually liking this game.
While I have never played Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, I can assure you that this game follows the beat-em-up style, and the dinosaurs.
There is not much to be said about this game, it's pretty normal, but with dinosaurs, I like it. 4.5/5 only because it has no replay value.
This has to be my favorite shooter game on the internet. No doubt about it.
What I like most about it is the achievements, they made me want to spend hours playing this game to get them. An also greatly appreciated bonus was the addition of female avatar options.
The game is good because it adds great graphics with great game-play, although, two concerns were the lack of game modes, and the mysterious "Artifact 19" which, when you look at the game guide pretty much says you need experience with the weapons.
Well, I got my achievements, I am "experienced" where is this "Artifact 19"? I did not have it even after re-booting the game many times. So I fear it may either be lost to me, or maybe it's a bug which makes it so that I may never know what this mystery weapon does. That is a great dissapointment. It's like half-a-star worth's loss, because I spent hours playing for that moment.
Another thing I briefly touched on was the lack of modes. I Thing-Thing Arena 2, you had more than enough modes to try, Zombie mode, Stinky Bean mode, stuff like that made the second game fun. So, I'm asking, why not here as well? You have all this great stuff, new character options and graphics, but yet you couldn't add one more mode? Half star gone.
I hope there is another Thing-Thing game in the series, but since it's been dormant for a few years, I'm not quite sure we'll ever get more than this. If they did add the multiple game modes, and made it so the special weapon wasn't so hard to obtain, I would absolutely love Thing-Thing Arena 4.
TL;DR: Game is great, but it has these little holes in it that prevent it from being the perfect shooter, 4 out of 5.
I love this game, everything about it is great. My only hope is that you include more customization options, maybe being able to play a female?
Also, more guns couldn't hurt, definitely more shotguns, a pump or double barrel would be bad-@$$.
And my only real gripe is that achievements don't seem to work. The only one I have is for beating all the missions, and I've done all the other ones.
This game is excellent, keep up the GREAT work!
