Over dit spel

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.

  • 100 Levels in 4 worlds
  • SpeedRuner Mode
  • Start playing at the end and make your way back

The game is fun, simple platforming. The graphics are humorous, the music's good, and the concept and progression are funny. I was also pleased that the game supports the 360 Controller and to see that when I fail, the grumpy background objects with faces cheer up.

I had three problems with the game:
-The trophy system. You get a gold trophy for beating a level on your first try; silver for second; bronze for third or beyond. But when you fail a level, you go right back to the beginning of it to try again. You can beat a level after 3 fails and get a bronze, then restart it immediately, win it and get a gold. I just felt frustrated and didn't want to go through levels again to get trophies that I felt I'd already rightfully earned.
-The collision checking is off; I had many times when my character didn't touch an enemy but the game determined that I had and I lost the level. (To those who known GameMaker, the character's collision box appears to be a rectangle; it's not precise)
-I would've preferred for jumping to be precise too; when you press the jump key/button, you jump as high as you possibly can; how long you hold down the button doesn't affect the height of your jump. This meant that many times I jumped over enemies and items I didn't want to.

It's still worth playing, though. Very short, so don't expect to get more than an hour out of it.

I got this as part of a Humble Bundle and didn't realize I had it, so I think that would count as getting it for free...
I wouldn't recommend spending the full $3 on it, wait for a sale if you get it.

A fun little game with simple rules. Not very challanging or long; you can complete the game 100% in about an hour or two and you can play through the entire story in about 1/3 of that time. With that said, it leaves much to be desired and can often just feel like you're doing nothing to influince it, especially since it's all autoscrolling.

Is it worth the $3? Maybe wait for a sale to get it, but when you do get it, complete it.

It was really fun and entertaining, not frustrating hardcore indie game at all. But it was very short. Keep in mind buying this game on sale sometime.

Who knew playing a game backwards would be so fun?
(Mirachiworld is best world 10/10)

I'm not usually one to play platformer games, but this game caught my eye and was 75% off so I thought, why not?

Took me just over 1 hour to finish it and get all the achievements and throughout, I was enjoying myself. I did get a tad frustrated at a few parts, but that's just part of playing a game like this.

I definitely recommend this game, especially if it's on special.

I have gotten perfect ratings on all 90 levels AND all the "bonus" mariachi levels, and have all the achievements, a feat which took probably less than an hour of total playing time. And it was... sort of fun. But the game is not good. The controls aren't tight, the hit detection is awful, and the level design makes NO sense as a "game in reverse" - if you were playing these levels "forward" they wouldn't work at all. It's just a platforming puzzle (and I use "puzzle" loosely) set up to be done backwards. And the level design is uninspired, to the point where even 90% of the way into the game they're still throwing in levels with only one or two jumps / obstacles in them, no tougher than the stuff at the very beginning.

There are some promising ideas in here. But I played all the way through it not because I was having a great time, but to see if there was anything better further in. There was not.

This game is way too easy and way too short. After 44 minutes I have 100% achievement progress; I beat the game in just under half an hour. Watching the credits is the most time consuming achievement.

The longest level of the game takes about 12 seconds to complete, there are several levels where you just need to jump one or two times to complete it.

You get a gold medal if you beat the level first try, but you can easily reset the level via the escape menu, so every try counts as first try. Since there are no checkpoints, there is no difference except in hearing the first 20 seconds of the music over and over again.

The idea for the game is nice, but it is not enough. You are automatically running backwards and mostly just jump over obstacles. It's a very bad and very easy version of Bit Trip Runner. In the whole game (including bonus stages and everything) you just use the Up-Key to jump and in about 30 levels you use the Z-Key for "actions". The actions are NEVER challenging. The hardest parts of the game include about 3 pixel-perfect jumps, you have to master. But because the levels are so short and you can restart them as you want, you will get these jumps by luck or training within one minute.

For achievement hunters like me, this game might be quite acceptable, since it is an easy 100% in less than an hour (10 achievements total).

But if you want to play a game for fun and/or challenge, you should rather play Runner 2. And if you like the concept of playing a game "backwards", try out Braid. It's not exactly that, but it has many elements of what is on your mind.



To be constructive, what the game needs:
- More challenge (e.g. don't have one "action skill" at a time, but have them all, so you use more than just 2 keys)
- Better level design and longer levels
- Another concept for getting Gold medals (e.g. don't have a time paradoxon, but give Gold to those, who can undo every object of the level)
- I think, this would be nicer, if you did not auto-run; although you then had to rethink the whole concept of the game
- Make more things, that make the game "backwardsy", like: A very high jump move, with which you can reach high platforms (from which the character originally fell down), but if you don't reach a high platform with the jump, you have a paradoxon

All in all: Don't buy it for more than 1€ or $. It's not worth it.

PS: There might be Workshop-Userlevels, that are better than the games original levels, but I rated the game here and not usermade content. The game itself should be good enough for a play and the userlevels should be an extra.
