Informace o hře

Spoiler Alert is a video game that tests your platforming skills… in reverse. It’s a comedy platformer that you play backwards.

When you pick this game up, it has already been beaten. The big bad boss is defeated, the coins are collected and the princess has been rescued. Why, oh why?
Unraveling this mystery takes you through the entire game, from the last level to the first. You must uncollect the coins, revive the enemies and avoid nasty time paradoxes. In other words, you must uncomplete the game by playing it backwards.

Everything in this game is so familiar, yet so different and new. You have played it a thousand times before, and at the same time, you have never tried anything like it.

Spoiler alert je nenápadná indiovka s docela dobrým napádem- hru začináte na samotném konci a vracíte se v čase zpět a Vašim úkolem je v celkem 3 světech na dohromady 90ti mapách procházet předepsaným způsobem a nevytvořit časové paradoxy. Herní obsah není moc velký celé se to dá projet i s bonusovými levely tak za 2,5 hoďky, ale i přesto jako chvilkovou zábavu doporučuju...6/10.

Spoiler Alert is a one-trick pony that wears out its welcome long long long before you reach its very short conclusion (beginning?)

The idea, short-burst reverse platformming, unfortunately is far more clever than the execution. Uninspiring levels with no room for player creativity leave players repeating 10-second chunks over and over to master the exact sequence of split-second moves the game intends.

It would have been slightly less annoying had the devs thought to include an option to turn the music off separately from the sound effects. After about 14 repetitive levels of frentic midi-accordion mariachi hell, I chose to play in silence.

The only reason to pick this game up (hopefully for free or very cheap) is to get the relatively fast achievements. Spoiler Alert is mercifully pretty short, I spent longer idling cards than playing.

"OK" i thought "this sound's interesting and one i would like to play" but i was to find out that even though it sound's good on paper OH DEAR this game has one gimic and it outstay's its welcome long before you finish its very short story mode (to be honest half of my play time was actually waiting for the trading card's to drop).
Now you do unlock other mode's of play like an extra world and a speed mode,but all these do is add a little extra play time to what is a very mediocre release.

Ok on to the bread and butter of the game and first of the story,well you can call it that but really it doesnt have one other than you play as a spicy chili pepper knight and have to finish the game by getting back to the start and unsaving princess tomato (yes you read right princess TOMATO "SAY WHATTTTTTTTTTTT").
So the story doesnt really matter or play any part in the game and thats ok in some release's but lets keep going and see why that would have helped this game rise above what it is.
Ok next up graphic's,now lets be honest graphic's dont make a game (they never have and they never will) but sometime's when playing a game you really do feel that better graphic's would have helped and this game is one of those exception's,and to be honest for me the art style was a bit of a turn off.The graphic's smack low budget and even if this was intended for me it was a real low point and to be honest i have seen better in game's that you can download for free.
So next up sound and spoken dialogue,well there is no spoken dialogue so onto the sound in game and "AARRGGHHHHHHHHHH" it does get on your nerve's so much so that you will turn it of whilst playing (well i did as it was driving me NUT'S).
The game play mechanic of going backward's to finish the game is a clever one but as i have said it out stays its welcome very quickly and is'nt as clever as it like's to think and beleive it actually is.I mean to be honest and fair to the game it is'nt an expensive one but whilst you play you realise that it is going to be one game you finish rather quickly and after you have it will just be another game gathering dust in your library of title's that you will never (and i mean EVER) play again.
Anyway here's a video to show you the gameplay and just how long it will take you to actually complete the game from finish to start (DONT WATCH IF YOU DO WANT TO PLAY THE GAME FOR YOURSELF) -

Would you want to play this game and will you get any enjoyment out of its short play time,well answer the following three question's and decide -

1 - Do you want to play a game that has one gimic that outstay's its welcome way to quickly ??

2 - Are you looking for a game who's music will make you want to seek medical help if you listen to it for to long ??

3 - Is there nothing else you want to buy,are you really sure of that REALLY ??

So in closing not a game i would reccomend to anyone in a bundle of even (sadly to say) for free,i know there will be some who will enjoy this game but i personally found it both a chore and a bore to play through,and to be honest i really hope the game never gets a sequel but i will let Steve Carell have the last word on that point!!!!!!!

Spoiler Alert manages to cram more tedium and stress into 30 minutes than most games tens of times longer.

Looking over the concept it seems solid enough: beginning at the end, Spoiler Alert plays in reverse as you run backwards attempting to recreate your past movements as you go. It’s not all the different from what the excellent Retro/Grade was doing a few years ago, but where that game used time reversal as an interesting hook to wrap a rhythm game around, Spoiler Alert betrays its concept immediately and seems to really just want to watch you fail while wagging a metaphorical finger in your face.

It traps you into an auto running cage and then expects you to somehow predict when you need to jump (your only means of interactivity), which is easier said than done when your character moves like a blob of jello, your window of opportunity is seconds small, and hit boxes are all over the place. The simplicity of level designs and how they get more difficult the closer they are to the start of the game also helps to destroy the impression that you’re playing through a game backwards instead of just a really boring runner that decided to be edgy and go left. No game would ever design levels like this, but somehow Spoiler Alert seemed to forget its most fundamental concept in every way that actually matters.

I legitimately burst out laughing when I exited the game to find I had spent only half an hour clearing every level in the game, as I could have sworn I had been stuck in Spoiler Alert for days cursing its cheap kills and Casiotone Christmas themed mariachi soundtrack (which is every bit as horrifying as it sounds). If Spoiler Alert is a joke it’s one nobody is laughing at, not even the game itself. If anything it felt like Spoiler Alert had come preloaded with its own self contempt, begrudgingly going through the motions as quickly as possible so I’d leave it alone and we could both get on to better things.

Spoiler Alert is a nice little game and sort of refreshing. Basically, you are a chili pepper fighting aliens and what have you. However, you start at the end and work your way back through time to the beginning. Other than that, it's basically like Super Mario as far as gameplay, only you are obviously doing things in reverse, which often entials intentionally missing enemies and coins rather than trying to gather them. The very beginning (i.e. the end of the game) is kind fo funny and makes the hour long journey all worth it lol.

Very nice, game with seamless gameplay. Does what it sets out to do in stellar fashion.
