Reviews

“...to understand how excellent Bad Hotel is, you need to play it. And you need to hear it...I like Bad Hotel so much I'd buy it for you. Get it. It's wonderful.”
Kotaku

“Completely awesome...Lucky Frame, keep this kind of stuff coming.”
Gamezebo

“Bad Hotel is, in short, the stuff of wonderful nightmares: an eerie soundtrack, a menacing palette and an all-pervading sense of inescapable doom. Yet it's also one of the most original and atmospheric tower-defense games we've played all year...”
Modojo

Über dieses Spiel

IGF FINALIST 2013
BAFTA WINNER 2012
TIGA AWARD FINALIST 2012

1. Build Hotel.
2. Make Music.
3. Stop Tadstock.

An insane hybrid of a tower defense game and a procedural music toy with tons of bullets (and healthy number of Wu-Tang references and credit crunch satire).

The hit game for iOS now available on Windows and Mac! You are a budding entrepreneur, whose hotel is rather unfortunately located within the territory of Tarnation Tadstock, the Texas Tyrant. Your only defense against Tadstock’s army of seagulls, rats, yetis, and more is to build your hotel as quickly and intelligently as possible, using an array of increasingly sophisticated weapons.

The beautiful artwork, quirky storyline, and frantic gameplay all work seamlessly together with a generative music system, which creates original music depending on the player’s actions and decisions. The player becomes a composer, creating complex musical structures to defend their hotel. A vast variety of music can be generated, from delicate beach chillout to country banjo techno.

Get the BAFTA-winning game that Kotaku said was "wonderful" and The Guardian called "an unlikely work of minimalist art".

Bad Hotel ist ein kleines Spiel das von Smartphones auf den PC portiert wurde und das mehr schlecht als recht. Im Grunde wurde gar nichts portiert außer das das Spiel auf einem PC läuft und mit Maus und Tastatur bzw. mit einem Gamepad gespielt werden kann.

Das Spiel erzählt eine kleine belanglose Geschichte über einen mächtigen Hotelinhaber der seine Konkurrenz ausschalten will.

Ansonsten ist das Spiel wirklich wie ein Mobile Game aufgebaut und spielt sich auch so, es bietet kaum Tiefe oder Anspruch.
Im Spiel baut man sein Hotel aus verschiedenen Räumen auf, dabei kann man sein Hotel in die Breite oder aber auch in die Höhe bauen. Am Anfang baut man immer erst einmal ein paar Wohnräume, denn die bringen Geld das man für die Anschaffung von weiteren Räumen und deren Upgrades braucht. Nachdem man ein paar Wohnräume hat wird man diese schnell mit Verteidigungstürmen umbauen, denn die ersten Gegner lassen nicht lange auf sich warten. Die Gegner sind unterschiedlich und haben unterschiedliche Angriffsmuster, man hat aber schnell alle Gegner gesehen. Die einen Gegner fliegen einfach starr auf den ersten Raum im Blickfeld zu, andere ziehen Kreise über dem wackeligen Hotelaufbau und lassen ihre Geschosse ins Mauerwerk krachen und wiederum andere lassen wie Bomber große Bomben über dem Hotel fallen.
Im Laufe des Spiels schaltet man mehr Gebäude frei und kann diese auch immer weiter upgraden. Aber auch die Gegner rüsten schnell auf. Entweder liegt es an mir oder das Spiel ist wirklich verdammt schwer, denn ich komme nach dem ersten Bossgegner kaum noch weiter. Durch diese Frustration und eine mangelnde Erklärung des Spiels habe ich das Spiel schnell wieder links liegen gelassen.

Die Level wiederholen sich schnell und es schleicht sich schnell eine Art Monotonie ein da man einfach schon alles gesehen hat, das Spiel wird einfach immer nur schwerer und schwerer.

Das Spiel hätte einfach ein Mobile Game bleiben sollen das man mal 5-10 Minuten spielt und es dann wieder bleiben lässt. Am PC funktioniert dieses Spiel nicht wirklich gut, aus dem Spielprinzip hätte man aber mehr machen können, es gibt viele andere gute Tower Defense Spiele. Falls man also nicht auf Mobile Games auf dem PC steht sollte man von diesem Spiel die Finger lassen.

Bad Hotel is a very special kind of tower defense game which gives players a lot of room for creativity and imagination. There is basically no rule of how you should build; you can try any combination you like and build up your own oddest hotel to beat monsters. The game is not long, yet the difficulty is well-balanced that may take you some time to beat the whole game.

A cute light game. =)

Shovelware ♥♥♥♥♥how with a more monotonous soundtrack than 95% of the original Gameboy library. It is really easy to just pick up and play though, so at least that's something.

I found this game to be extremely hard and unforgiving. However that's what made it so much fun. It reminds me of the classic NES era of gaming where games were hard, and often could not be beat in a few hours, yet alone a few days.

If you want a unique take on tower defense that is both fun and challenging you should buy this game.

It's not good. It's not good. It's bad.

Really bad.

This game is repetitive and boring, to the point where I altered some files just to get achievements faster. It's really quite a grind, and the bosses are so unfair to a point where I wanted to just give up. (#GottaGetThemAchievements)
Another annoying thing is that you actually don't have to do the levels. You can just skip straight to the bosses, which is a stupid idea.

Don't get this game. Even if it's on sale.

I would actually give this game 8/10 for innovation.. but seriously.. must it be really that hard? I look for fun in games. The first few levels were OK, quite entertaining.. then the difficult seemed to shoot up by ten times.

There are a few hints on what to do.. so a little experimentation is needed. This caught my eye... but did not keep my attention for long.. Can't recommend it..

At first I found the music so bad I deleted the game. Then I came back to the Bad Hotel with the summer event to get some extra trading cards... I tried it with the sound off. I started to really enjoy the manic tower defense. Then I turned the sound back on. Finally, it started to make sense. The sounds correspond to your building. Now, I play to make great logistical towers & interesting -if experimental- music. Don't underestimate this lil' game. It's not bad at all.

Bad Hotel

Passender hätte der Name für dieses Spiel kaum sein können. In diesem Geschicklichkeitsspiel von Lucky Frame geht es darum sein Hotel vor angreifenden Vögeln , Schlangen oder Wolken zu schützen. Zur Auswahl stehen uns allerlei Räume, die leicht per Drag & Drop an das jeweilige Gebäude angesetzt werden können. Einige Gebäude geben uns mehr Geld, andere wiederrum haben Abwehrmechanismen.
Die Level sind dabei sehr kurz gehalten und der Schwierigkeitsgrad variiert ständig. Auch im weiteren Spielverlauf ändert sich merklich wenig. Für die freispielbaren Errungenschaften benötigt man ebenfalls kein Talent.


+ einfache Steuerung
+ die musikalische Klangwelt

- sehr kurze Runden
- wird schnell eintönig, trotz neuer Elemente
- Bugs

Bad Hotel ist ein wirklich sehr bizarres Spiel in jeder Hinsicht.

Ein Tower Defense Spiel versteckt hinter einem Musik- Experiment, ist Bad Hotel eine Anwendung die durchaus auch den Spieletitel "Kuriosität" tragen könnte. Man fragt sich die ganze Zeit, was soll das, was muss ich machen damit ich den Level gewinne - denn Hilfe biete das Spiel kaum dem geneigten Spieler. Aber man muss wohl die Kreativität und Originalität des Schöpfers bewundern, der dieses bizarre Spiel programmiert hat, so wie es ist und auf einen wirkt.

Verteidige das Hotel durch Angriffe von Vögeln (die mit Bomben bewaffnet sind!), Wolken, Bienen die Projektile schießen und anderen merkwürdigen Kreaturen. Durch platzieren von "Räumen" als Turm Mauer sollen wir das zerstören des Hotels verhindern - ob das klappt?

Wenn sie sich jetzt am Kopf kratzen, sind sie nicht alleine. Dem Autor dieser Zeilen geht es ähnlich.

In der Rolle als Eigentümer eines neuen Hotels ist ihr einziges Ziel, die Verhinderung der Zerstörung Ihres Gebäudes durch bauen neuer Gebäude- Blöcke. Es werden Wellen von randalierenden Tieren (Selbstmordattentäter) ihr Bestes tun um Sie scheitern zu lassen. Um den Angriff abzuwehren, müssen Zimmer (die kosten Bargeld) und Geschütztürmchen (die entgegenkommende Feinde vernichten) gebaut werden, die an Ihrem Hotel wie ein Flickenteppich verbunden sind und einen neuen Sound Happen zum "Soundtrack" hinzufügen.

Die Levels sind schrecklich unausgeglichen und erfordern vom Spieler eine nahezu Perfekte Bauform. Wie man das anstellt - darüber schweigt sich das Spiel aus. Wenn man einen Level bewältigt, stellt sich aber keine Genugtuung ein beim erfolgreichen Abschluss einer Ebene. Man hat das Gefühl das es alles andere als Glück war das man den Level gemeistert hat. Diese Freiform- Strategie der traditionellen Tower Defense-Spiele zwingt den Spieler seinen Plan ständig anzupassen wie man jeden Raum platziert. Es ist einfach unbefriedigend und verstörend, die "Musik" nervt, die Gegner sind zu abgedreht und unpassend und jede Motivation weiter spielen zu wollen wird untergraben.

Warum sollte ich mir das Spiel noch weiter antun wollen?

Die Musik, die durch die verschiedenen Klänge von jedem erbauten Turm erklingt ist alles andere als melodisch, eher wie Signaltöne, wie man sie von einem 56K-Modem her noch kennt. Bad Hotel verursacht nach kurzer Zeit schreckliche Kopfschmerzen und der Griff nach der Mute-Taste ist schnell getan. Optisch ist es ebenso unorganisiert und hässlich auch für ein zuvor als Handy-Spiel entwickeltes Spiel. Die Umsetzung für den PC ist eher schlecht.

Fazit:
Es gibt liebevoll gestalltete Tower Defense Spiele, die spielerisch als auch Musikalisch begeistern und experimentelle Wege gehen aber Bad Hotel tat nichts dergleichen um mich bei Laune zu halten. Für den Preis eindeutig zu wenig Spielspaß.

You know how sometimes you play a game and you call it "experimental" and it's really cool because it stands out and there's nothing like it and you're glad someone is doing neat, innovative things? And then other times you hear the phrase "experimental" said, but you've got a different tone of voice and it's more of a "I feel like my wallet and my time have just been vivisected" fashion?

Yeah this one's the latter. Your hotel has a core you defend at all costs, every "world" has its own sound patterns per block, and a beat rate the game matches with all the little rooms you build onto it. Some give you more cash, others fire at enemies, some are kamikaze or healing rooms, and every 5 levels there's a boss. That's it. Nothing else. It's modified tower defense but your towers are basically a music tracker. Not even a challenge mode or endless play for when you finish the rather-short campaign. (The closest you get to this is the later worlds all have a gimmick "no weapon/kamikaze-only" stage which, overall, is less fun than it sounds.)

Also the music sounds really interesting in the trailer, right? Yeah, nothing you make in-game is going to sound so cool and trip-hoppy. It's instead going to sound like an auditory seizure. On the subject of music: do you like the Wu-Tang Clan? Get ready to groan at a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of references to their songs in the between-level text. Which... isn't even on every stage. The game couldn't come up with 25 single-sentence lines of dialogue, that's actually the perfect metaphor for how this feels more like a gimmick than a game.

Bad Hotel is bizarre. Not the sort of bizarre that makes you marvel at the creator's creativity and originality, the bizarre that leaves you scratching your head as to what you are playing, why you are playing it, and how it came to exist in the first place. A tower defense game hidden underneath a music experiment, Bad Hotel is an apply named oddity which seems to want to do nothing but be different no matter how detrimental it is to the experience.

Taking on the role as the owner of a new hotel, you are besieged by your greedy competitor whose sole goal is to destroy your building piece by piece, sending waves of rampaging animal suicide bombers (parallels could be drawn to terrorist attacks, but I highly doubt the developers were aiming for anything that heavy). To counteract the attack you must place rooms (which give you cash) and turrets (which destroy oncoming enemies), which connect to your hotel like a patchwork quilt and add a new sound bite to the "soundtrack". Despite sounding novel on paper this is where everything starts to unravel.

Levels are terribly unbalanced, with certain ones requiring near perfection to complete and others offering no difficulty whatsoever. Completing a level successfully never felt like anything but luck to me, and by altering your arsenal each level the developers remove the free-form strategy of traditional TD games and all but force you to follow their plan for how you place each room. This subliminal linearity makes it aggravating to continually fail a level and unsatisfying when you eventually, a combination that sapped any motivation I might have had to continue playing.

The music created by the various sounds of each tower is anything but melodic, more akin to a skipping CD or a telephone booth with various beeps and buzzes all combining into an awful mess of sounds and clashing time signatures. I would consider myself open minded when it comes to music but Bad Hotel did nothing but give me a terrible headache and reaching for the mute button. Visually it is just as disorganized and ugly even for previously being a mobile game, and the art and interface have had little if any work done to them for the PC version (a trend that seems to be happening more and more often).

I absolutely love tower defense, music, and experimental games more so than I can say, but Bad Hotel did nothing to keep me interested and everything to drive me away, despite how much I should have liked it. There is a decent amount of content here for the price, but I doubt many will bother to see most of it as it isn't enjoyable to play. There is something to be said for trying to do something unique, but this is a perfect example of how badly that goal can backfire. I cannot recommend playing or purchasing Bad Hotel in anyway, and can only hope it doesn't take too long to wash the awful taste it left me with.

Music & Audio: 3/5 ♥s

In writing this review, I'm assuming that most people who are drawn to Bad Hotel were wowed by the haunting music and surreal experience they saw pictured in the trailer, as I was. In short, I'm here to regretfully inform you that the truth behind the matter is that the only thing "insane" about this tower defense hybrid is its learning curve. It's almost safe to say that if Bad Hotel were an RPG, the creators of Dark Souls would be taking note.

-Gameplay & Controls-
Bad Hotel plays out in a rather straight-forward fashion: as the manager of a hotel in an unexplicably hospitable vacation destination, you must strategically construct rooms to keep your building intact for a specified period of time. Certain rooms garner certain abilities, with some giving your hotel an increased source of income while others come equipped with missiles or gravity-defying mines to blow away any miscreant who happens to attempt an assault on your futuristic space Marriott. Although the first several levels serve as a basic and relatively easy introduction to the room types, the player is subsequently dropped into a boss fight with rage-inducing difficulty, forced to watch their pastel pixelated polygons repeatedly destroyed over and over again without any indication as to how you are supposed to be constructing a "sound" hotel. (That pun was entirely unintentional, and I only recognized its genius upon rereading that sentence.) Assuming you decide to keep playing after this point, you'll find several more sets of levels during which one's annoyance with Bad Hotel will range from that of watching the Star Wars prequels to being forcefully confined to a small room where the only source of light comes from a television playing Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on loop for 24 hours. If that sounds like your cup of tea, then by all means, go ahead; it is still a playable and fully functional game, but I think I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed my time with Bad Hotel.

-Graphics & Visuals-
Graphically, the game isn't much to look at. As previously mentioned, the game is basically comprised of pastel shapes over a background with a slightly unnerving pallet, whereas the enemies in Bad Hotel largely seem to consist of pixelated gulls and some very aggressive clouds. It never quite gives off the effect that one originally perceived it would have from the trailers, instead going for a manner that not only neglects to fully please but fails to live up to the hype. However, what graphics there are do appear to compliment whatever misunderstood direction the game actually takes, so I suppose that counts for something.

-Audio & Music-
This is my biggest gripe about Bad Hotel. If there were ever a case of false advertising by companies porting questionable mobile tower defense games, then this would be the one. What I neglected to mention earlier in my review is that this game serves a dual purpose in that it is also a procedural music generator. What this means for the consumer, however, is that the haunting, chilling tones from the game's trailer which made it sound so deliciously appealing in the first place are nowhere to be found, instead replaced with a selection of noises that in Lucky Frame's perspective better suited their pixelated amalgamation. Still, I did find myself on occassion putting more effort into creating vividly pleasing sounds than attempting to clear a level, so some points have to be awarded for ingenuity. While the creation of musical undertones through the building process is actually rather rewarding in its own way, I can't help but feel that Lucky Frame regrettably missed the mark on this one, if simply because Bad Hotel gives away an entirely different experience than the one that had been promised.

-Final Thoughts-
Well, there you have it -- my two cents on Bad Hotel. While I admittedly have not spent a large portion of time on the game, I feel that the impression I received was strong enough to justify such opinions. If I happen to play the game for a longer stretch (although I'm not quite sure how anyone could spend a considerable amount of time on the game, as despite its difficulty it appears rather short) and decide that any part of my initial review is unjustified, I'll reexamine my editorial. Until such a time, however, I leave you with the final statement that I ultimately was more entertained watching the trailer for Bad Hotel than I was actually playing Bad Hotel. If that impacts your purchase, than so be it.

Bad Hotel is pretty bad. It's a hectic game, with not enough breathing room between waves and a stupidly weird difficulty spike at the end of world 2. Plus, simplistic, childish graphics do not equal 'art'. It's a weird idea, and let me tell you that weird games can be some of the best games out there, but this one just doesn't work. I can see it working on an iPhone (like it originally did), but for us PC gamers there are so many other tower defense games out there that are just so much better in its execution.

This game is very unplesant to play. It might be more fun on a tablet, but on a PC, it's awkward and confusing. I do not recommend this game.

It's bad enough that it's the first and only time I ever asked Steam for a refund.

They politely declined. :-/
