This is the first time I've played these all the way through. Forgive the lack of a proper review format; I'm doing this in a running commentary style.
PART ONE (By TwinHamster)
Midnight. The time to pursue greatness. I agree. I begin my quest exiting a "Shup," baffled by spelling errors but amused by the silly plot.
I watch my hero jump onto a random animal, reminding me of Adventure Time. I can forgive the horrible spelling errors just because of that one thing.
So far the graphics are great, but the spelling is really irking me.
"Goodness Damn" will be my new way of referring to Goodness in vain.
I'm amused by the situation our hero is in at the registration station, and love the deus ex machina with the Warp spell sending him to an UNKNOWN LAND. I'll take this moment to point out that the graphics have been great so far, if smooshed; particularly the animations.
"If you stay here too long, you'll grow a beard. A truly untameable beard." Classic OHR line right there.
I like how the knight takes Martin's sword and teleports away without offering to teleport him in return (which is what the player is seeking to do in the first place).
The first half of the game is a perfect adventure game parody; none of the clues or items make any sense, but it does not bother the player, who is hopefully amused.
The sound effects are stupendously awful, but were only funny the first time. These are the weirdest Zelda-style battles ever. I feel like if the game had been completed, it would have been better than it is.
I think that this Chapter would have been better off as a pure adventure game, with none of the battle elements. Those felt really tacked on and irrelevant. Still, it leaves me wondering what will happen next.
-Chapter 1 Evil Number Scores-
Good stuff, especially the animations. Weakened by the OHR's screen resolution, but I can't hold that against the author too much.
The sound effects are awful, but the music fits pretty well. Some good stuff.
Excellent for what it is, but the lack of proofreading is readily apparent. One of the best parodies of the adventure game I've seen.
Gameplay mechanics: 5/10
See plot. The adventure game parts were great, but the second half of the game is just on the wrong track. Still, a fun way to kill 15 minutes.
-Chapter 1 Band Comparison-
Some people will love it, some people will hate it. The ones who hate it are the ones too stuck up to remember how to have fun.
Stay tuned for Part Two
