That’s a bit the fate of all villains Peter 'Darksheer' Grey encounters.They appear, do their half-arsed crazy stuff, are either beaten or disappear in a puff of smoke and the protagonist, aided by his female sidekick, has to take care of his wounds after that.Only one more time, so that makes two in total, I was genuinely surprised by a shock scene.
Unfortunately also the story is nothing but a cheap mockbuster.
The game combines live-action scenes, with several actors of B-movie fame, set in a cartoonish world - Mary Poppins for adults, if you'd like - but the story soon becomes pretty moronic.
This 1994 game was fished out of the abandonware sewers last year and given a new life, for all those classic gamers who want to revive some of their VGA dreams on Windows 10 machines and as such it was given some attention in magazines and blogs.
Some of these early avid fans were even infuriated because this new release got rid of a couple of bugs, including one that got you stuck on a level if you didn’t carry a certain item in your inventory.
Luckily there is a swimming pool in the game that magically heals all problems on a whim.
The erotic aspect of the game looks like it has been devised by a fourteen years old pimpled adolescent for a target audience of other fourteen years old pimpled adolescents.The first villain Grey meets is an old acquaintance.She is not a TV commercial vampire but a demon who has taken possession of a nun’s body.Immediately after that a 'Twin Peaks' kid offers the man a package that catapults him into the world of his favourite comic strip, where he takes the role of Darksheer.Darksheer is a cheap Batman clone and all villains he will have to fight look like Aldi versions of Gotham city crooks.The game is build around loose ends and it takes two very long monologues to explain the What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.
