Ratings and Reviews
I don't know
I really liked the free trial but I'm a little hesitant to spend 5$ on the whole thing.
If we're being honest here though I probably will buy it.
Alas, my will is soft and easily broken. Curses. And thanks.
Best choice game ever
This was absolutely the best choice game I have ever played. It had a great plot, a lot of funny moments, and lots 'o' lovely characters and choices to make. Although I wish there were a longer story and maybe more choices. Also I wish it weren't that easy to kill Dr. Arachnus. I'm going to download more choice of games games and I also purchased the rest of the story with no. Hesitation at all. Thanks you!!
Not serious enough for me...
Don’t get me wrong, great idea! Getting to be the bad guy of your own world? Brilliant!
But with this? I don’t feel like a villain... I feel like another edgy teenager that wants to be taken seriously.
This is mainly in part as to what choice you have, besides having some be completely pointless, most just feel silly... and I’m not talking ‘The Joker’ kinda silly, cuz with him he’s still scary as his silly antics lead to a dangerous outcome... this, however, fails to make me feel like a threat.
Still a good game & a beautiful concept... just- a poor execution.
