Flat out, this is going to be one of the most simplistic, non-graphically impressive games I will play all year. I don't think there is any question about it. I mean seriously, look at this logo to the right! That is a legit "screen shot", actually what the game looks like. I wish I was kidding, too.
So this game is called Boredom, and it was recommended to me by a good buddy of mine earlier today while he was helping me with a top-secret project that I am putting together that hopefully I will be able to share with all of you soon enough. Anyway, he recommended this game with the hopes that I record myself while playing it, because he thought it would be hilarious.
Little does he know, though, that I don't quite react the same way that a lot of gamers do when playing frustrating games. Sure, I get upset and all that jazz, but I tend to bottle it up and not portray it out loud. So I figured if I tried to record myself, I would reacting just for the sake of the camera, and honestly, what would be the point at that point?
Anyway, this game is pretty straight forward. Advance your stick figured through the hand-drawn world full of spikes and other obstacles using the arrow keys on your keyboard. It gets harder the farther along you get. Sure, it's frustrating like any good near-impossible platformer, like Super Meat Boy or anything like that. But it's not groundbreaking by any means. However, it is free, so it has that going for it.
Actually, to be honest, the writing acting as the narrator is pretty clever and got a few chuckles out of me. But yeah, that's about all this game has going for it. Sure, it's a boredom killer, but killing your character over and over again in boredom isn't exactly my idea of true fun.
