Corin's Mystery Massacre
« on: October 20, 2006, 03:37:00 pm »

I downloaded this game and wanted to comment on how much fun it was.

Anyone want to spoil some of it for me? I still don't really get the u's.

Does anybody remember what a u is?  Is it the letter mu?  That you can drag around and place, but does nothing?  Those are walls.  They'll stop the ooze from overwhelming you long enough for your towers (capital Pi) to take care of them, though they get damaged over time.

Yeah, it's a very fun game. Gets kind of difficult too early, and the only way to overcome that is to wait at the end of the first level and buy a bunch of c's (I have found out what most of them do. But that's for me to know and you to tediously find out!).

My highscore is three beaten levels...

Yeah, I think I topped out around three as well, then I just die.  Of course, if it got more interesting after that, it would...  be more interesting after that.

Corin's Mystery Massacre.

You're not supposed to know what's going on. You're just supposed to lose.

I beat my first sector today, somewhat of an overkill because I'd been building lots of fliers and units. I still don't know what most of the color's properties are, but I've gotten much better at surviving.

This game could REALLY use a save feature. Just something to freeze the game for when you come back. As it is, if you're going strong and suddenly have to quit, exiting the game means you don't make it on the high score table (which isn't really a big deal to me, but it's sort of fun to read the stats on my current run).

I'm not sure placing walls is worth the time. In all the games I tried that, I got overwhelmed, but in my recent game I didn't bother and was able to clear a sector.

Anyway, props to Toady. I started off completely confused by this game, but after figuring out enough to play decently, it's pretty fun.
