it could be good if the RPG was fixed up and the graphics were redid. but for now.... EEEWWW!!!
Pure Funk. Truly a game that will stay in my memories forever. Maybe I love it. Maybe it scarred my mind so very, very deep and brutally. Maybe both! But no matter, here's the POOP.
Take on the role of a young lad, donning his most dapper suit and strapping on his dancing shoes, for a night of debauchery at his girlfriend's party! But when he reaches the front door, a smart young fellow with a smart mouth decides it's time to teach you who the real lord of the dance is.
Now is a good time to explain the Dance Battler engine. It's your typical "RPG" engine, as seen in older games such as Legends of Jaconia 3. You select one of three dance moves, one damaging your opponent's "Dance-o-Meter", one damaging your own, and one...er...that does one of the two, again. All the battles seen in the game are exactly the same, so things get a bit repetitive in this section.
Eventually, you use your dancing shoes to prove his <3 belongs 2 u. He backs off, intimidated, and you enter your girlfriend's house! But what other fiends will hinder you? A good few!
The music is lacking. The graphics are even moreso. The gameplay is a true atrocity. But what makes this game so good? Exactly what made the classic movie PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE good!
...Well, not that good.
You get the idea!
PROS: -Comedy Factor -GOZWALD THE SCHOOL RUFFIAN and YOUR GIRLFRIEND have the exact same face!
CONS: -Nonexistent Gameplay -Poor Sound -Poor Graphics
There's only two ways to rate a game like PURE FUNK: give it a 1, or give it a 5.
In my dictionary, Pure Funk means 'Don't Play Me.' OK, I have no idea what I'm talking about but this game is pure shit. Sorry to be coldhearted, its just I don't have a heater in my house. Anywayz the RPG engine totally sucks, just like commodore 67 said so, and Maushi goukansha piro sez its pure crap and so do I unless I ain't talking about my life that is. My advice, download this if you think you're sexy, yet again I have no idea why I said that. Actually don't download it -- better, jump off a cliff.
I played this game after reading piro's review, just to see what it was like to be so bad. Well I advise anyone from pursueing that course of action. The game has no puzzles, no pitfalls, nothing that could pose a challange and therefore nothing that you can have fun solving. The only conflict you have is three dance scenes set in RPG format. Soup must've had no concept of the #lock command because you can touch your attack object five times before you are attacked once by your opponent. Over all I think the worst part of the game is the txt file that acompanys it. It says basically that they will take legal action if you steal portions of their game. They also saw it necessary to lock the game. Some people...
Pure Funk? Hah. More like Pure Crap. This game was a game made by a (hopefully) dead ZZT company, Soup. You play as some guy who goes dancing, for no reason. It was obvious that little skill or time went into this game, but, no matter. I am only typing this out of boredom, anyhow.
