Über dieses Spiel

What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...

Key Features:

  • Two full length campaigns: the original award-winning "DLC Quest", and the brand new "Live Freemium or Die"
  • Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy (or two) to defeat. You like that stuff, right?
  • Over 30 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry
  • Over 20 achievements to earn and make you feel reasonably satisfied with yourself
  • Online leaderboards

Das spiel ist schnell zuende, macht aber in der kurzen Zeit viel Spass.
Das mit ingame Münzen kaufbare "DLC Level Up" system ist spassig und sorgt für abwechslung in dem kurzen Adventure.
Für den Preis auf jeden fall eine Kauf empfehlung

Mach definitiv Spaß, allerdings sollte man die Finger von diesem Spiel lassen wenn man keine Satire versteht.

Simply brilliant.

Short, but also really cheap. Achievements are easy to get; most of them at least.
These factors alone make it ideal for those achievements hunters out there.

Amusing music, and suitable graphics. But don't expect too much in the technical department.
Its core, of course, are the hilarious references to the industry. References which -far from tiring- gave me an enjoyable and funny ride through the entire game.

And when you have gotten enough, leaderboards add competitiveness for enhanced replay value.
It seems the first campaign can be finished in less than nine minutes!

Given the price, achievements, trading cards, and laughs I can't help but recommend this title!

Not a bad game, but humor is not brilliant and the gameplay itself is worse. Back in the day joke games of this type were free.

I like how it plays out. I want to see more developers do something like this, but then again, we have Sims 3. Recommended.

Score: 7.7 - Worth Checking Out.

Very simple and short game. Worth a couple bucks for the jokes. Recommended if you like platformers, and remember games before they nickel and dimed for everything.

It's a nice play on the current video game market and it has some great humour,
however, after finishing the game there's no feeling of accomplishment or anything.
It's a game you install and play once and never touch again.

TL;DR

Funny humour, but not worth your time.

A nice funny little game, which offers good gameplay for the short time it takes to play and finish it. It's a good game, especially for the price.

Fun meta-game. It is funny and has an interesting point about the state of video games today, presented in a light-hearted way! Does get a bit boring towards the end so I didn't bother with the second campaign thing. 6/10 - but because it is so damn cheap it i actually a pretty good deal!

Got this game for two bucks. Still question that decision. Thought this game was interesting and possibly funny when I picked it up, which I would argue it might have been, if I had a different type of humor. I really like the idea of it, poking fun at DLC, but really poorly executed, like, proper gameplay-wise. Short, too.

I've spent similar amounts of money on waaayy better games

A one-note joke that tries to carry itself for a full song. Should've been a dumb 2 minute flash game.

The hell did I just play?
Oh wait, it's a parody game. And an apt one. Because everything these days is DLC. Good DLC, bad DLC, microtransactions. Frickin everywhere.

Was it worth $1? Maybe. Or you can buy me half of a cheap beer and hear me rant about DLC for two hours.
3/10
