Asher is quite mistaken, this game is really good.
As Business Bob, your job is to, well, get a job. After that, anything goes!
I've played the original version of this game, and it was good, as well. But Viovis's enhanced edition really rox0rz teh sox0rz!
Why is this not a Featured Game?
I didn't like this game too much. It was too random with no real point and even with the graphical update it still doesn't make up for the not-so-interesting gameplay. It doesn't live up to its "business" name. I actually didn't even finish it, it was so boring.
it didnt make much sense but it was very fun. i liked the tribute to robin. the graphics were flashy and that somehow added to it. i liked the characters too.
... this game is too random to say much else about it.
I remember playing Robin Miller's classic Business Bob way back yore or something, when the plum blossoms opened up and the Vietcong were still carpet bombing my house.
But I digress. The original Business Bob, despite its yellow borders and lack of STK, had a certain charm. I can't quite place it. Perhaps the off-the-wall slapstick atmosphere. Perhaps the sheer lunacy of the Bob family. I honestly don't know.
Viovis's retooling of the game includes ass-kickular graphics and some nice tunes, as well as creative use of slimes and a few other nice programming tricks (that can sometimes cause lag, but oh well). Sometimes it borders on trippy, but it's all good. Yet, Viovis preserves the original Robin Miller charm.
I especially liked Viovis's idea to replace some object conversations with art boards with text for the speech. This inspired my idea to make a programming-less game.
