Jan 5th 2018- Battletoads

*Image is original artwork (also pulled from gamestop.com)
Hello, and today I am doing a review on Battletoads. You may be wondering hey, why the HUGE delay. I honestly forgot where I put my laptop in my room. Come when school starts up again I’ll probably find it in my locker or satchel. So you also now may be wondering what is he doing this on. My phone. So sorry if quality is bad. (*Post edit, halfway through I found my laptop.)

Battletoads is an old game by rare in which you play as Rash or Zit. It’s a old beat em up that is easily a classic. I recently beat it last week, and holy cow is it tough. But it is fun.

If you ask any 80’s through early 2000 kid about a beat ’em up, most will think about Battletoads. It has good graphics (For its time) and very solid gameplay. It is a very fun game, but, however there is a major bug that makes this game hard to beat completely (so I would recommend the Rare Replay version, as it fixes the bug and makes this game immensely easier) but still playable to the end (Keyterm end if playing non Rare Replay). This games gameplay is solid, and the music is addicting (a little too addicting, I got it stuck in my head) . This game is overall a pretty good game, so I would recommend this to everyone, but I wouldn’t recommend a completionist play through, but a beat it play through. Overall I would give this game a 3.5 out of 5. That’s all for now-

Decembers mobile game of the month- Gardenscapes- December 1st 2017

Image found at google play

This months MGM is Gardenscapes. Gardenscapes is a game I play a lot. I mean a lot. It is a little concerning how much I play. Well anyway, Gardenscapes is a game where you get a house, and you renovate and revamp a garden. You play connect and match levels, which get progressively harder. I know that for a fact, because I’ve played enough to get to level 341 (that is the level I am currently on). I would recommend this game to anyone and everyone. This game is beautiful, and you can just stare at it for hours. That’s all for now-

If you follow my twitter, this was seen coming from a mile away. This game is a very addicting game. I find this game very aesthetically pleasing, and relaxing. I’ve played this game for hours at a time, because of how well it is made, from the beauty and ambient music. If I was rating this, it would be a solid 10. This game is extremely addicting too, as it has elements of cookie clicker (ignorance is bliss for this, as cookie clicker is one of the hardest games to pit down). I say get this game for yourself, as it is free to play. Thats all for now-

August 21st, 2017- Metroid other M recommendation

With two new Metroid games just around the corner, I am here today to review Metroid the other M and recommend it to just about anybody. First of all I would like to say this game is both 3D and 2D at the same time. This offers for some very interesting gameplay mechanics, as you can go from a side-scrolling section to a completely explore-able area. Now on to the main chunk. If you like Metroid fusion, then you will either really love this game or hate it. This game in its core is how I’d like to say a re-imagining prequel.  Some people might be going “What in the world does that mean?”. Basically it feels like it was heavily inspired by Metroid Fusion, almost to the point of a remake (Which would be awesome if Nintendo made a remake for Metroid Fusion), but it is made in a way that the plot is completely different, the gameplay is extremely different, but it is extremely similar. I love this completely. This is a game in which its plot is one of its strongest points. Many people might not like this game (To my knowledge), but it is extremely fun. You even get to see bits of Metroid 2 and Super Metroid. This is also one of the few games where you even get to learn some of Samus’ past. That is why I give this game a 9.9 out of ten stars. So go play it, and get ready for Metroid Samus Returns, and that is all for now.

July 25th, 2017- Kid Icarus 3D remake review

Kid Icarus

After a really long hiatus, I am proud to review the 3D remake of Kid Icarus. (Sorry if this is one of my more sloppy works, it has been a while) Now before fans of the series go get their pitchforks and go,” Really, recommend Kid Icarus, that is basically giving a baby a hand grenade,” yes, that is what I’m doing after so long. This game is insanely hard, but this series has as much love from Nintendo like the Joker and Harley Quinn. But this game is insanely fun once you get past the wanting to throw your controller to the wall. On to why this game is so great.

Plot (5 out of 5)- In this classic, you play as Pit, an angel from Greek mythological times, trying to save Palutena, the goddess of light, from imprisonment from Medusa, goddess of darkness. Pit is a young angel who can’t fly, and one day Medusa turned all angels but him into stone because he was a crippled angel. This is one of the darker plots of Nintendo, so overall I give it a A+.

Difficulty (-5 out of 5, aka difficult like there is no tomorrow)- In this game falling means instant death, getting hit too many times means death, and you have to start the stage all over if you die. To be completely honest, the reason it is so difficult is the first level. You start out in the underworld, and guess where the hardest enemies are. They put Reapers left and right, but to be completely honest, if you beat the first level, the rest of the game is a breeze.

Game play (5 out of 5)- The game mechanics are overly simple. All it is is jump, platform, shoot, pray you don’t get killed, duck occasionally (Do not do this on clouds, this can easily get you killed) and occasionally switch to hammer to free centurions during fortresses. That is all there is to it.

Summary- Kid Icarus is a fun classic you can easily get from Nintendo on the 3DS. I would highly recommend it, and overall I would give it a five out of five. If you can beat it, then any hard game might become a lot easier. That is all for today.

May 11th 2017- Super Meatboy recommendation

Warning, do not play this game if you are easily offended, or a kid(without parents permission, so parents, play it first). But what is it with little kids playing games not intended for their age group. Also this can be a rage inducing game, so don’t direct your anger at me if you “accidentally” or purposefully throw your controller against your screen or punch your computer screen.  Other than that, have fun. -P.S. One of the games soundtracks songs does have a vulgar name, and it does feature you going to the underworld for a while, so that is why I have to give this a warning Sticker. I would say if anything it is rated T. Also the games antagonist doesn’t have a fully appropriate name.

Today I am going to recommend a game called Super Meat Boy. Super MeatBoy is a quick paced platformed where you play as Meatboy (or one of the other unlock-able characters in the game) who’s girlfriend has been kidnapped by the games antagonist.This game makes you feel both nostalgia and rage at the same time, mostly for the fact it feels old school, but isn’t. It can be next to impossible to beat for most people (except me, no, I’m not bragging, this is just my favorite type if game), let alone get 100%.

Plot (100 out of 100 and 50 out of 100)- This game has an extremely easy to follow plot that is not hard to follow at all.  For that reason, I’m giving both a 100 and a 50, because it it has a plot that doesn’t make you confused, it’s cut and paste what happens, so for simplicity I give it a 100. The 50 part is this game has no complexity, and I personally like complex plots, but since my opinion is not of every ones, I’m giving it two grades, just to be fair.

Music- (100 out of 100) – I would give the music to this game an A+. I feel as if its one of the best things about the game because you will be stuck on many levels, so it’s at least gotta give you good music. My favorite song is the one of the underworld, but I do try to keep these reviews G to PG, so I can’t say the name. Look it up if you want to, but do it of your own accord. (This is so I don’t get in trouble if you get in trouble, so please don’t blame me if you look up the song name).

Gameplay (90 out of 100)- This games gameplay is repetitive (mostly for the fact of what type of game it is), but it constantly adds new elements to not make it monotonous (It’s not like running you over with an 18-wheeler, it gives you new elements at a steady pace). Most of it is figuring out what to do by yourself, but it is almost painfully obvious what each thing does. It even some times fires what each new mechanic does at you.

Rage inducing ((this scale is the more rage inducing it is, the lesser the score, just to make a game not a perfect 10 out of ten where it makes you want to throw the console out the window, also adds and additional 100 just in case of being too rage inducing) 35 out of 100) – This game can make you madder than the mad hatter, buts it not from being a crappy game. This game is legitimately hard and frustrating from good game play. Although this can make you go, “I should’ve made that,” it is still almost always the player who messed up.

Graphics-(75 out of 100)- The graphics of this game are good, but not great. I would say the games graphics are mediocre, but then again this game was released in 2011. So 75.

All in all, I would give this game an eight star rating (7.9 and 2/3 to be exact)(that’s the average of the two scores put together, from one category having two scores. Ones 8 and 1/3 and the other is 7.5) This amazing game is 15 dollars, so go check it out for yourself. Until next time- The Firemoon Gamer
