is this download the demo or the full version
Link is to the full version. The whole post is about the game now being free…
Enjoyed the humour and graphics, but for me the difficulty curve was a bit off a it was a little frustrating.
Definitely a game I would pay for – but $20 is too much in my opinion. I’m not sure about the amount of content, but because there’s only the story mode I would price it somewhere around Â£5 (~$8). Big reduction I know, but’s it only reason I can think of as to why it didn’t sell more.
Finished it. That was seriously awesome. I hope that it’ll be ported to other systems when Studio comes out! I’d love to play that on my PSP 😀 The humor and everything was great, and the graphics were amazing, but I did notice the slight compression on everything. It should be rereleased without compression, for a small fee of course 😉
I loved the humour in this game.
Such a high-quality game. A shame it didn’t sell too well. I think the problem was the price; if it were $5 – $10 and it were marketed more heavily I think it would have done better.
I was never able to buy it, but I loved the demo… now I can play the full version! 🙂
