Link: Legends of Kong
Genre: Action Platformer
FlashMush Rating: 8.5/10
Nerdook is back once again! The guy who brought us games like Cat God Vs. Sun King and Dreamsong Catcher once again brings a great game.
Legends of Kong (I can only assume he's talking about Kongregate here) is an action platformer. Aren't all platformers action oriented? Well yeah, but I decided to throw this combo genre up here as it really applies for Legends of Kong. Basically the crazy plot Nerdook cooked up for this game is an evil corporation basically made the city full of mind controlled zombies. You must brave the danger and destroy the eleven transmitters. Along the way you can find or "buy" weapons to fight off the "zombies", find survivors and generally try and save the world! A neat thing about this game is you can play the game without actually killing the enemies and actually their are incentives to not. So love the game for that alone, the ability to play it how you want. Sneakily or maniacal.
But, as with everything, I must commit on flaws. The biggest thing I find about Legends of Kong is the difficulty. It's not that the curve is skewed it's just a hard game. And while the randomly generated levels and rooms are neat and vital for it being a good game, that at times can make it harder. Also, I must comment on the "uniqueness" of it. While I know I bashed on one of Nerdook's latest games (Dreamsong Catcher) for being too unique to the point it was too hard to play, I find this game to just be a hodge podge of all the games Nerdook has made. So while it's good, nothing is too ground breaking.
Overall though I loved this game and it has great replay value. Must play for all flash game fans!
