Review: Unknown Game 1974
A long time ago, after getting burned by a weak Starfox clone, I swore that I would never again download a fangame. I cannot explain what posessed me to download this, but I can say that this game has once again strengthened my resolve to never download fangames again.
Why? Because frankly, most of them suck. Like this one. But it doesn't just suck because its a fangame...there are reasons for it. Reasons which I will now go over.
First of all, the Graphics and sound. Almost every single graphic is ripped, mostly from one of the SNES Mario games. As a matter of fact, I can only think of one original graphic: a tiny, circular red dot. I'll get to that later. In the end, the graphics aren't that bad, it's just that it's all ripped. So while the game does look fairly good, I'm taking points off because none of the graphics are HIS.
The music is standard-fare Mario MIDIs. There are virtually no sound effects save for a really weird noise you get when you shoot enemies.
Which brings me to gameplay. The gameplay is shallow, there isn't enough of it, and what's there ain't too good. The game consists of shooting or avoiding enemies as you jump across platforms to a clipart flag. That's right, you shoot a little red dot at enemies, which disappear instantly upon being hit. You don't jump on enemies at all. This is supposed to be a Mario fangame, right? So why can't I jump on the enemies?
Actually, now that I think about it, it's pointless to even worry about them, since they take off so little health that they're virtually no threat.
You'd think that the game was easy then, no? Actually, it's not, due to horrid play control. The control is twitchy, hard to control, and inaccurate. You will die many, many, many times in this game from falling off tiny platforms. This game, simply put, is not fun.
And at the end, what lastability can we give this game? A healthy, full-fledged 1. There isn't anything of much value here. The graphics we've all seen before. The gameplay is meager and incredibly not fun due to bad play control.
Note to all newbies: A good game ripped graphics and no gameplay do not make.
I'm sorry to have to give such a low score to this game, but it demands it.
