I thought about starting this review countering all those negative reviews talking about money, controller support and the ****......but it is not fair. I'll start talking about this fantastic old game....which not every mind can evidently sustain.
This is a labirinth game. it is designed to make you lose your way, confuse and upset you. As every labirinth ever constructed (and deserving the name) every corridor appears the same with few changings (mostly traps).
This is the goal of the game....NOT LETTING YOU OUT! so why should it help you?
No, you're going to try and navigate this infinite dedalus, dodging traps and collecting utilities along the way, until you can find the solution for the riddles behind every door you'll find (or die trying, which is funny in itself! never laughed as much with any other game over).
Naturally is an old game, and pixels dominates everything....wait, what are you saying? 2014 was the year of pixel art? how STRANGE. (graphics = useless) at least for this game type, go take a look (and play) "Papers, please" for instance: pixel art at it's best, a new game, fun and challenging. Only difference with Litil Divil, that is NEW, this is OLD.
Obviously is and old labirinth game, so if you're looking for action, explosions, people screaming and nudes, turn around and don't come back. please.
All the reviews complaining about the controller support, about how this game is too difficult or "too old to be fun (wut?)"
Even about how there's NOTHING to help you along the way.
And i almost died laughing. Let me explain why:
Seriously, this game is OLD. Ever since the OS (every OS) evolved, thus leaving this (as another hundreds of games) behind, i've wanted to play it again. Now some gentleman decided to use DOSBox to convey it on steam. Well, i say CHEERS, thankyou!
Now, the reasons behind my perplexity:
1) MONEY - Awww poor you, 10€ for a challenging retrogame is too much! better spend 2€ on candy crush, yeah? ......or 50something on COD for that matter right? shoot shoot shoot.
2) HELP - Seriously? where did the real gamers go? OMG no weak glowing spot to shoot/click/aim/look at, we're DOOMED! finish this game you explosions addicted braindeads, i dare you.
3) CONTROLLER - and so you played on amiga, fine! last time i checked the controller doesn't make the game....so use your damned keyboard, spoiled brats!
This game is funny, relaxing and challenging....at least until you undersand it. but you need to try, that's all.
