Über dieses Spiel

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
  • Classic platformer gameplay mashed with simple controls
  • Beautiful handdrawn graphics
  • Original soundtrack by Roland La Goy

Spoiler alert! At the risk of ruining everything that has built up to this moment, I’m going to reveal this game’s big secret: You kill the final boss in the first ten seconds. That’s it, game over, credits roll.

Wait. What’s this? There’s more after the credits? The game is now going… backwards? I just un-saved the princess? I just un-killed the final boss? Hold the phone, something’s up here!

Spoiler Alert by Megafuzz is a platformer in reverse. While auto-running backwards through time, your goal is to ensure you do not cause a time paradox while undoing everything our hero did on his way to save the princess. This means putting coins back that you had previously collected, un-killing enemies you had previously defeated, and catching fireballs you initially launched at foes.

Pro:

+Unique concept

Contra:

-Too short
-Little variety

The idea is fun but Spoiler Alert doesn't explore it enough. The game feels like it could be so much more if the devs had put some more time into level design.

The developers behind the game recently addressed the shortness of the game in a post on Steam. They indicate that they understand the game is short and do not intend to launch the game and forget it, but rather will add more content later. They also mentioned their hope that the community will develop custom levels using the level editor provided. Will a game as easy as this one inspire players to push it further? Time will tell.

Einfach ein geiles Spiel !

Weltklasse Idee alles von Rückwärts zu spielen!
Man muss alle Coins oder Gegner wieder "beleben" um kein Paradox zu erschaffen.
So beginnt man nicht wie in all den anderen Games von vorne, sondern von hinten. Auch mit der letzter Welt. Einfach genial.

Super Grafik und Soundtrack. Wunderbar einfache Steuerung <-- der Xbox 360 Controller freut sich über das Game :)


Nur leider ist das Game ein Tick zu leicht und zu kurz.
Habe alle Errungenschaften und Levels/Welten in 1-1,5 Stunden durch

Für 1-2 € ganz nett. 1,3 Stunden und schon war ich komplett (!) durch - mit Bonuslevel.

Pros:
+ Grundidee: Man spielt das Jump'n'Run rückwärts - vom Abspann bis zum Intro, ebenso Endbossfights
+ Eingängige Steuerung (fast nur Maus benötigt)
+ Jeder Level ist irgendwann schaffbar

Cons:
- Arg geringer Umfang
- Automatisches Rennen
- Leveldesign zu karg
- Trial and Error

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.
