I don't know if the shortness of this game is on purpose or not given the theme of an addicted stereotypical gamer neglecting everything from his own health, home, and pet to play. We could either complain that this was very short or go outside do something, clean up, make sure our pets/loved ones are cared for. With that I'm off to take out the trash.
At first I groaned thinking that it would be another swap this for that puzzle game that I could mindlessly luck my way through. I've played enough of the same game only with a different look. But this may look the same it's rather different, I find myself taking much longer pauses to actually look over the puzzle trying to find the spells and trying to predict which move will get me the spell that I need/want.
The strange thing is in most of these escape games the mechanics and puzzles used to escape are strange and a bit far out given you're escaping a normal room. With this once you understand the concept the methods to escape makes more sense.
Somehow or another I got clipped into one of the blocks. A close save point near the first steep wall climb would have been wonderful, after getting past that I frantically searched for one while being careful not to die which nearly happened. The final wall climb feels like a cheap difficulty spike, not really creative. I think combining it with more of the blocks and buttons as you went would have been a better way of incorporating everything that we've done so far to that point.
After getting all of the upgrades then traveling over 1mil miles I became a bit bored. There's no goal other than gaining achievements and it became dull after traveling so far with no real change of scenery to make me feel like I was advancing somewhere. It's not a bad game in the least but it wasn't long before I would just launch the little guy and wait for him to stop with no assistance on my part.
Usually I avoid these zombie games but this was rather fun and before I knew it I was done. I saw myself realizing how I could have done one thing different to maximize destruction of enemies with one shot. It was fun to see that they weren't all out to kill me but were enemies to one another as well, it was nice to lead one enemy to the other and let them battle it out and save the ammo on destroying just the survivor. That was a bonus help when it came to the boss.
Replaying once again and I noticed that it's 1234597 for the secret items. At first I thought it was a typo but then I realized the bat is hanging so the 6 is upside down. Little details like this is why I love these games.
Things started too quickly in 'getting aged' chapter. In a blink I had a wife but then she disappeared, the achievements appeared at the same time, then I was attacked while trying to read what I was suppose to be doing. I don't even know what happened.
