ROSS'S GAME DUNGEON: DEATH'S HANGOVER

Welcome to the late Halloween episode that I’m actually okay with being late! This wasn’t the original plan, but this past month has been a series of mild crises + rapid plan alterations. I feel like Halloween this year for Game Dungeon was a solid fumble that was recovered.  Here’s the result!

I remember seeing this one a long time ago in a Jimpressions episode from Jim Sterling, and a big "NOPE" passed through my head when I saw it. And this Game Dungeon ended up reinforcing that feeling.

 

Not just the mean traps like those holes in the side-walls, but the "humor" of this game also made me cringe a bit. I can take crude humor, but this game writing makes Duke Nukem 3D look like Monty Pyton in comparison. I laughed not from the attempts of humor from the game itself, but from Ross's delivery of the lines and his own jokes and references, that were spot on unlike the game.

 

This game also reminds me of Wizorb, which is another indie Breakout clone. And since I've discovered that Death's Hangover came YEARS after Wizorb, I would not be surprised if the latter served as a inspiration for it, especially since it also tosses other elements over the "Breakout" formula like abilities and bosses.

 

I think Ross should cover Wizorb in a future Game Dungeon, it's not perfect, but I think it's a really solid game.
