I got blasted out of space in the third planet.

Tank suit?  I've only seen the sewer and shotgun methods of the last minigame.

Has anyone H4XOR3D a version with more liberal use of chances to save the game? D:  Doing the landing pad and space battle over and over on the first planet starts to wear out the magic.

This game looks so fun but I haven't got past landing... I tried like 20 times and always burrowed or was shot. My ship is hardly responding to any keys I press...

At least I have no problems with space battles, no problem killing patrollers and satelites, my only death in space was when I tried fighting a Dreadnought and got one-shot-pwnt... ;)

I keep forgetting the "Curses" section isn't the Liberal Crime Squad exclusive section.

I'd have to dig it up off in a closet at my parents' place somewhere.  I'm not sure where it is.

Yeah, LCS deserves its own forum. At least a sub-forum of the curses forum.

ArrowThunder gestures!
The Star Zoo thread shudders and begins to move!

I am necroing this thread because it seemed silly to create a new thread for a topic when this thread is (as far as I can tell) the totality of the conversation on Star Zoo on the internet.

Anyway, I was poking around and found Star Zoo, and I thought it was fun enough that I went and beat it! I did savescum, as per Toady's suggestion, but I got pretty good at it by the end of it. I think my record for contiguous clears was like 6 or 7. Each of the minigames is fun (and the math game earned quite a few laughs), but there's a trick to them too. With one exception (as far as I can tell), every tactical choice is viable but some are harder than others. For the record, there are 25 assignments, not 20 and not 40, although Toady's 20 was closer. The story was engaging enough to drive me to keep going, but wow that ending. I still have questions... why the nightmares? Why did they stop, why did they start? What's up with the defenses guarding these specimens?
If anyone wants them, I did start logging the story and saves partway through. Some of the animal names are amusing.
