Wow. Just wow. This game is scary. Very well executed.
The game definitely contains many types of "scaryness". Anticipation of somethhing happening broods and develops throughout the course of the game. When something does happen, sound effects don't always accompany the event. Finding the teddy bears and the keys isn't -hard-, but it is a challenge. Claustrophobia, the unknown, darkness and anticipation all might cause someone to turn back and go back the way they came to avoid progressing through the game.
A lot of LP'ers I have watched play this game miss a lot of the teddy bears because they aren't looking hard enough (maybe it's the fact they are stupid or legitimately scared that prevents them from looking hard enough) to find a lot of the teddy bears.
I have to say I was most impressed after you found the "last" teddy bear. All of that anticipation is built up, and the game nails you in the stomach with all of it and then some throwing jump scare after sequence after sequence.
Well done. 8 out of 10. More points if the TV scanlines were dropped and some of the jumpscares had higher resolution textures.
I didn't play the original renegade.
The voice acting was pretty bad. Characters' mouths didn't move when they spoke. AI was dumb. Sometimes they wanted to kill me, sometimes they just wanted to stand there and shoot the breeze and sometimes they shot at my teammates.
Bad AI, bad voice acting, great graphics, fun gameplay and decent sound effects (though you can tell that almost none of them came from the C&C series). Despite the bad voice acting, they had a very good EVA. Overall, 7/10. More points if it was longer.
Adventure Apes and the Mayan Mystery is an alright game. My main beef with the game are as follows:
1) Some enemies are way too frustrating to kill, e.g. bats
2) I don't feel a motivation to play it.
3) No gamepad support
4) Too convoluted, many of the rooms feel the same.
I do feel that ScaryPotato does have a lot of promise as a developer, and I do look forward to more games by them.
I really appreciate this game, as it takes traditional platforming and forces the player to take a new perspective on platforming. It's quite painful at first, but it presents a new and exciting challenge. Turtle Cream was very thoughtful in placing their checkpoints, and making the challenge present but not overwhelmingly difficult. It's really fun, and I enjoyed playing it.
This mod adds so much. The only problem i had was that the kauruva campaign didnt work properly. But thats being fixed soon so it doesnt affect me. I love this mod. I love the new units an factions. the new look. the new camera. Everything is as perfect as i could imagine it. And its awesome. I cant wait for the next update. goodjob.
