I liked this game alot the graphics are good same with everything else the jokes are FUNNY dammit. the game is puzzlely alot.
After the entertaining Wartorn and the tremendous Burger Joint, people's expectations were incredibly high for this game. Consequently, its release resulted in claims by almost everyone that it was Matt's bast game, and one of the best ZZT games ever made.
But, of course, almost everyone is STUPID and WRONG, as you will see.
The basic set-up of the game (you're in prison for stealing food) is thrown out the window almost immediately, and replaced by two alternate storylines, neither of which is really as funny or interesting as the programmer seems to think.
The first is a spoof of Titanic, except even less funny than what you're imagining right now. For example, the ship is called "Dietanic". Get it? Because lots of people died on the Titanic, and it rhymes with "Titanic" and everything! Guffaw! And the girl's name is Nose! Because that sounds like Rose!
I'm not making this up, you know.
The second plot is a parody of various things, including the Wizard of Oz, and ends with the player talking to the creator of the game himself. What comedy! Sorry, that should read "What? Comedy?
Okay so it's been pretty negative so far. Anything good? Well, the graphics are quite nice. Yup.
Right, that's out of the way, back to tearing this to shreds:
The dialogue is lame, and characters have no personality outside of their accents. The gameplay is pretty much nonexistant. Aside from the odd action scene it's just a case of wandering about talking to everyone and hoping the "plot" progresses soon. *The jokes, as I've mentioned, are awful.
Still, the game is only 33% what MadGuy originally envisioned, so I guess we lucked out on that other 67%.
