Okay, my beef with it is the same as the GB bonus levels. Color palette swap (and that looks pretty good), but what about the other half of the aesthetics? If we really want to get all CGA, the music and sound effects really need to be crappy PC speaker sound effects. High and low-pitched beeps.
Oddly, playing Mudds really makes me want a new Commander Keen game...
@TriforceBun I'm playing it. Trying to win the Links tournament.
Good luck! I just managed to eek out a victory in that one yesterday, after several days of trying it. Thankfully, the practice (and leveling up my drive) paid off in the end, but it sure is easy to botch up your score with all the heaths and OB areas.
For a game that's insipration is retro-gaming (8-bit and 16-bit), the throwback levels as a whole disappointed me from an aesthetic standpoint, which was a big downer to me (I'm very into aesthetics in game). That doesn't make Mudds a bad game (because it isn't), but it could have been better.
@TriforceBun I have been playing the hell out of Mario Golf since last week. Beat Links a few days ago, still need to travel to the Mushroom Kingdom but I want to level up some more before I do. I miss the N64 connection, you can level your character super fast by using it.
@anon_mastermind I picked up LM yesterday and played the first level. As a lefty the game is a little difficult because of the controls. I have to tap the lower screen with my finger and it makes the aiming a little difficult. The graphics are well done and the game plays well, more impressions later.
I bit on Liberation Maiden and Nightsky. Both of them seem pretty awesome for the money. My early impression is it is the most true-to-genre game Suda 51 has ever made since his insanity has been unleashed.
I've been really busy with work and social stuff lately, but I'm finally downloading Liberation Maiden, before Sandy hits thank goodness, even if all my power goes out I'll still be able to play like 3 hours before my 3DS dies!
