About This Game

Congratulations, you’ve just been cast in your first slasher movie! You’ve been given your big break by the notorious Director X. His methods have produced some of the finest grindhouse films ever committed to celluloid. Famous faces and big names are not what this director is looking for. Fresh faces are all Director X casts, and with your embarrassingly empty resume you’re as fresh as they come!

But seven other hopefuls are also in the running, so you’re going to need to prove your worth if you’re to hit the leading credits. You’re going to have to scratch, claw and strike to slash your way to the top. This job’s going to be murder!

Developed by Outerlight, Bloody Good Time takes a new and irreverent approach to multiplayer shooters. The game runs on the Valve’s Source engine, known for classic multiplayer shooters such as Half-Life and Team Fortress.

Key Features:

  • Be a deceitful bastard! Flush your enemies in the toilet, crash their heads on their plates when they eat, do whatever it takes to maim and kill other competitors in nasty and unexpected ways!
  • Use a full arsenal of wacky weapons including guns, a baseball bat, a frying pan, and even an exploding remote-controlled rat to transform the movie set into real mayhem!
  • Clash with up to 8 players online in a zany, first-person shooter, multiplayer experience like no other.
  • Choose from a variety of stereotypical B- movie characters, including the bikini beach babe, the stoner, the creepy clown and the super jock.
  • From Spring Break Beach to the Horror House to the Vegas Hotel, discover what’s behind the Hollywood set in these unique multiplayer maps.
  • Developed by Outerlight, best known for their work on The Ship and the Half-Life mod of the Ship. This Scottish-based developer brings a great combination of humor and quality game play to Bloody Good Time.
  • Running on the Valve’s Source engine, Bloody Good Time comes from the same pedigree of classic, online multiplayer shooters such as Half-Life, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike.

Bloody good time is a good FPS PvP or PvCP. 8 characters to select to play as and 3 good but small maps. The whole aim of the game is to kill people without being caught by security guards. Use five star weapons to have the most stars out of other players or bots and win your match. There are in fact game modes as well, only a very little though. There are really good guns. I mean if you like assault rifles or sniper rifles this game has it. How about syringes for people who want to be a deadly doctor/nurse? What about a katana for those who wanna be one of those samurai's or ninja's? How about the flamethrower or flare gun for those who want to be a pyro? Or rocket launchers and TNT's for those who wanna be destructive? Then thats the kinda game you want to get.

Do you remember The Ship? A game that put you a cruise with weird owner who started strange competition where people hunted each other? It's practically the same. It just looks like a silly cartoon with stupid weapons and characters. The Ship looked similar but rather serious. This is supposed to be cool. It's a fun game, but has exactly the same
mechanics - you have to satisfy your character's needs and you have various weapons that give different amounts of money on kill, so kill your prey, don't get caught (guards/cameras) and don't get hunted. Simple as that. The only problem with this game is just 3 maps (yes, three). It has 5 games modes and what is very important in the light of no human players online - it comes with decent bots. That's it. HF.

A pretty innovative game (although see also The Ship and a couple of others in the same ballpark) that has its flaws, but can be pretty fun once you get the hang of it all. Basically you play an actor that needs to kill the other actors in the movie so you can be the star.

Although there are a few game modes, the core is The Hunt - you have one opponent to kill, while someone else is tasked with killing you. So essentially you have a FPS version of Chompy Chomp Chomp and you rush about collecting weapons and items to help you, heading to where your target is on the minimap (or you get regular notifications when they move to a new area of the map), while trying to avoid traps and other people who might be out to kill you themselves.

The learning curve is pretty steep - you really need to know the maps intimately, including what each area is called, and what the quickest routes to get there from where you are is (there are usually dozens of routes as there are ladders, stairs, doors, corridors - pretty much every room/area has 4 or 5 ways out, and many have 10 or more. You also need to know where the weapons and traps are and how to use some of the more esoteric weapons like the rat bomb (and when to use it), and how to best use the bonus items which can be game changing when properly applied. Plus you need to know where all the traps are, and critically where they can be triggered from so that you know when it is safe to pass through. And then you need to track which weapons are currently good to use, as well as knowing the ins and outs of the different game modes, which will be switched every few minutes.

The weapons are not really balanced, but this is kind of as designed - this is mitigated somewhat by the scoring system - the good weapons usually get enough use they rarely ascend to a being a high scoring weapon after the first round, but in practise getting an easy kill for average score beats a strategy of trying to successfully use every awkward weapon in a cycle as they get to 5*. Another issue is the Blood Money round, which basically scores way to highly, such that most of the rest of the game often becomes a tie breaker between the people that did well in that one round.

Once you have the hang of it, and have some friends who also do, things finally click and you will probably start having a Bloody Good Time, but I can see plenty of people deciding that getting to that point isn't worth the payoff, as even then this game is quirky, flawed and not particular well balanced.

GameScore:7.5(out of 10)

这个游戏最好玩的地方是联机,有时候甚至比某些大型游戏联机还好玩,大家一起欢欢乐乐的,如同游戏的名字,good time。之所以给7.5分,是因为两个原因:一个是优化并不是特别好,一个是地图太少。还有一个比较致命的缺点,游戏里只设置了8(或者9?)名人物,但联机可以16人,我相信你懂我什么意思。总之,朋友买来联机可以,如果你买来为了联机而没有好友有这款游戏,千万不要买,服务器少的可怜。

This game is the most fun place to be online, and sometimes even more than some of the big game online is also fun, everyone gladness, as the name of the game, good time. The reason to 7.5, for two reasons: one is the optimization is not particularly good, one is a map too. There is a more fatal flaw, the game is set only 8 (or 9?) The name of the character, but the line can be 16 people, I'm sure you know what I mean. Anyway, a friend bought online can, if you buy online with no friends to have this game, do not buy, servers pitiful.

このゲームは、オンラインである可能性が最も楽しい場所であり、時にはオンライン大物のいくつかよりもさらに、誰もがゲームの名前、良い時間のように、喜びも楽しいです。二つの理由から7.5への理由:1は最適化であるが1があまりにもマップであり、特に良いではありません。より多くの致命的な欠陥があると、ゲームはキャラクターのわずか8(または9?)名を設定されていますが、行は16人とすることができ、私はあなたが私の言いたいことを知っていると確信している。とにかく、友人がオンラインで購入したあなたは、このゲームを持っているのない友人とオンラインで購入した場合、、、哀れなサーバを購入していないことができます。

Ce jeu est l'endroit le plus amusant d'être en ligne, et parfois même plus que certains le grand jeu en ligne est aussi amusant, tout le monde la joie, comme le nom du jeu, du bon temps. La raison de 7,5, pour deux raisons: l'une est l'optimisation n'est pas particulièrement bonne, on est aussi une map. Il ya une faille plus funeste, le jeu se déroule seulement 8 (ou 9?) Le nom du personnage, mais la ligne peut être 16 personnes, je suis sûr que vous savez ce que je veux dire. Quoi qu'il en soit, un ami a acheté en ligne peut, si vous achetez en ligne sans amis pour ce jeu, ne pas acheter, serveurs pitoyable.

Nice fun game, it's always a pleasure to kill your friends over and over in many ways in video games, but it needs to be so people with routers can host servers to play with their friends online too, because there are almost no servers online and you can only play with friends on your LAN or if you don't have a router you can actually host a server and people can join you, and yet again there are still connection problems, this game should be fixed of all the problems, bugs and errors it has and add new features like new gamemodes and new player models, a customizable character would be a very nice feature and it sure does need a lot of advertising so many people would buy it and play it, a free weekend would be nice to gain the interest of gamers because as more players play this game, the more people will buy it.

Amazing game, but the lack of players is the biggest downside. If there were more maps, I would be happier too, but the maps that are already here are amazing, so no big complaints.
Overall, buy this so there are more people!

Such an joy to play.

The basic premise of the game is centered around the idea that you (tha player) will be controlling any actor from the movie that you like, altho the vast majority of them tend to be pretty generic in it's own sickening way, there are some than can actually get a couple of laughs out of you (such as the clown ironically enough).
As you enter to different maps that are diverse and unique you begin realizing that the idea of the game is to murder everybody in different ways in order to get more stars, the stars serve as points, more points, more score, therefore resulting in you, beating all your other opponents.

Basically you keep finding weapons around the stage that even tho after a while they may get repetitive they're still fun to use, besides, there are so many of them.
There are certain weapons wich cycle as you play the game in real time, What their cycling? You may ask, the level of stars you get when you kill other player with them, again, more stars, better for you.
There are also traps wich you can use to even get more points (let's call them points from now on), sadly a lot of the traps don't work nearly as well as some may expect, but it's a minor complain in such an enjoyable game.

I must say that i was pleseantly surprised that i enjoyed my time with this game as much as i did, i wasn't expecting it to be a joy. It's like a more complex Team Fortress without really sacrificing much of it's charm. Oh, it has a bunch of options for pc and runs extremely well in case you're asking.

Simply put, this game is a better, more polished version of The Ship with a different theme and gameplay twists that make it fun.

The only drawback is that there aren't many people that play. :/
