II - Gangs of Bad Guys: the new multi-player mode


Does everyone deserve a second chance? Can crimes ever be forgotten? Hiding behind the mask of the average man on the street, and furtively blending into the background, many war criminals, ex-Mafia members and other criminals have been literally getting away with murder, or worse. That is, until you turned up to ruin the party. As part of a secret and mysterious society whose members have sworn to rid the world of these Bad Guys, it’s your responsibility to make sure justice is served in the bloodiest possible way, using your unpredictability to your advantage.

Track the Bad Guys, be brutal and smart in your planning, and eliminate them one by one. But bear this in mind: each criminal’s death has to look like an accident.

In this ingenious puzzle game in which physics plays an essential role, you’ll need to keep a cool head and your wits about you. Show no mercy as you set out to kill the Bad Guy!

I really wanted to like this game, it was so much fun at the beginning then it got more complicated and i like that, i see people complaining about it which is dumb, they wanted this game to be easier which is ridiculous but anyways my main issue is that the game has some bugs in order to get some achievements and that it's really frustrating, the worst achievement is the one where you have to play the game 35 hours, i completed the game with all the stars before that time, that was fine, i had to farm the rest of the achievements, i finished farming the achievements and according to steam i have 40+ hours, ok ok, ill try to get a better score in some levels but now i been playing this game for 47 damn hours!!! no achievements, im sick of this game i wish i never bought it!

+ Stylish graphics
+ Fun to kill targets in all kinds of different ways
+ Plenty of scenarios

+/- Certain traps can only be placed on certain spots, no complete freedom
+/- Pathfinding problems can result in frustration; not always clear where a target will go to when he's alerted or when a trap is placed in front of him

- Secondary objectives not always clear
- Collecting teeth is an useless objective which hardly requires any effort
- The music, oh my god, the music

The concept is neat, but each scenario is samey, and difficulty is derived from trial and error that comes from floaty and kinaesthetically displeasing physics. Menus are fine, and the visual style is neat, but audio is best muted. Kill The Bad Guy is about figuring out exactly what the developer wants you to do, and no deviation from this course is permitted. Don't let me completely dissuade you, though - if you're genuinely interested, download the demo before you buy. I'm sure there's some audience out there for this, but I am clearly not it.

TL:DR - Game starts good but after first 20 levels game turns into frustrating experience mainly because of the camera.

Game got a neat idea - kill the baddie and makes it look like an accident. There are some original(use tree as catapult and load a dead dog on it) and generic(run them over with a car) ways to kill them. Art is neat. With black are marked the stuff you can use and civilians,cops and cameras for which you have to look for. With yellow is baddie and rest is white. Game offers 66 lvls in total(60 story,6 bonus lvls) . So far so good.

Now when comes to the bad stuff ... well.

Camera ... camera is terrible. You can't change the angel,you can only zoom in and out and often because of that you will often encounter miss calculation or missclicks.

Controls - well I used mouse only while playing and can say that .... some stuff is way to sensetive to clicks which may force you to restart the level. When you click on your "catapult" you cant cancel it to do something else . It's just like chess, you play what you touch.

Line of SIght - Well, every cop,civilian and camera got wall hack. Even though there is a button to show the line of sight of everybody it doesnt really matter when comes to buildings. Hell, cops and civilians can sense stuff from quite a far while the baddie barrely sees whats right in front of him..

Fast reflexes - some puzzle requires quite a lot of precision and fast reflexes .. well gl with that , its doable but after a lot of fails...

Humor - game tries to be funny but falls flat with just few of the baddie's description that may make you giggle for few seconds , rest are just blant or taken from LotR,SW and the likes universes just to fill the spot...

Overall if you got the nerves go for the game, else skip ...

Kill The Bad Guy is an indie puzzle game that revolves around assassinating targets using objects in the environment whilst remaining undiscovered and depicted in a simple, understated artistic design with plenty of dark humour. Though the game suffers from some key issues you’ll still manage to squeeze a few hours of good old fashioned puzzling fun out of it even if it is an incredibly slow starting game. This is a puzzle game that puts you at the heart of revenge murdering individual targets who are more often than not based on real life offenders.
The objective of the game is rather self-explanatory. In each level you must kill a bad guy in various, unusual ways. The game comprises of 60 of these bone shattering, blood splattering levels. For every level there are ways in which you can manipulate objects within the environment to bring about your target’s doom. At the start of every level, a fairly amusing profile about your intended victim which tends to include details of their crime and a name that vaguely points towards somebody in real life like ‘KimDotKom’, in reference to Kim Dotcom, or ‘Oscar’, in reference to Oscar Pistorius. After reading your target’s profile you’re then dropped into a white environment with black objects such as cars, ropes hanging on walls, steam vents and pianos that you can pick up, rotate and combine. You’re given very little guidance on what to do from here, except for the first few levels, so instead you have to work out what will kill the target. By selecting dark coloured objects you’re shown a large array of arrows that point to where you can place objects, such as atop buildings or anywhere on the ground. Objects that can be combined are coloured green picking up one of the constituent parts so it’s not particularly challenging to work out what goes with what.
There are very few controls other than picking up, rotating and combining items but after you have managed to pull off your mission, camera controls allow for a cinematic execution of the target. The camera can switch angles to get the best shot but it does come across as a rather pointless feature. During actual gameplay you can, rather helpfully, pause the game and look around the area but objects cannot be manipulated meaning that, when you decide what you’re going to do, you need to do it quickly.
As you progress through the levels you’re not just exposed to new challenges like the police and cameras, there is also a pretty significant increase in the variation of objects you’re given to assassinate targets. It must be said, however, that the first ten levels of this game are by far the worst of them all. Truthfully, I was amazed that I even progressed beyond them and discovered that the game actually contained something challenging and interesting. The initial levels are intended to be tutorials that ease you into the mechanics of the game. Instead, the experience is painfully dull and excessively lengthy. Never has a ‘tutorial’ chapter dragged on so slowly and uneventfully.
Thankfully the game opens up after a couple of hours play and you’re exposed to more than one way to kill your target as methods gradually become more complicated. The animations of your dying target do become a tad more varied in that they fall over when they are electrocuted but overall there’s not much difference between driving a spear through your target’s head, dropping a car on him and crushing him with a wrecking ball as, either way, he ends up as a bloody smear on the pavement. In a game where the method in which you kill your target is designed to be the be all and end all of the gameplay I would have expected more death animations such as a crushed, flattened body or some pierced limbs.
The game has some degree of re-playability as each level have secondary objectives that offer some basic tasks: catch the tooth of your fallen victim, kill them on the first day and find a hidden passport. The only interesting additional objective is to kill your target in a specific manner as the rest are repetitive and restrictive. The passport tends to be in locations like beneath cars or objects and hidden within buildings that become transparent as you pan over them. By completing these unimaginative challenges you gain stars which count towards unlocking a bonus level at the end of each chapter. These bonus levels are, ironically, quite a bit more interesting than the main game.
As a final note I found that the game’s humour often borders on the tasteless as there are sometimes very graphic descriptions of real life crimes such as those perpetrated the Columbine killers that some, if not many, may find uncomfortable. Generally the profiles of your targets are humorous covers of less invasive crimes such as fraud and embezzlement but when the game describes in graphic detail the crimes of the monstrous Albert Fish then the vibe of what is supposed to be a carefree, slaughter orientated romp is very quickly killed and is instead turned into something much darker and not at all light-hearted.
Whilst the game starts off slow and simplistic it quickly develops into a more robust murder simulation with some fairly imaginative solutions to the dilemma of how to discreetly kill your target. I particularly enjoyed the rather difficult task of luring your target to a particular spot or changing the path they were following by quickly putting obstacles in their way without them noticing. The level of difficulty scales as you play but even when the game becomes more complex there are moments where it comes across as pointless and repetitive.I would recommend waiting until the price has dropped but if you enjoy flippant murder simulation games with stark graphics and environmental manipulation then perhaps you’ll enjoy this more than I did.

Although there is a lot of blood and killing, this game is really a pretty tricky puzzle game. There is very limited freedom in your options how to kill the guy, most often an obvious and a less obvious solution. But when you solve it it's very satisfying to see the guy splattered all over a wall, floor, car, whatever.

The puzzles can be pretty challenging and sometimes a bit unclear. To fully complete a puzzle you probably need to retry it a few times, especially to get the second objective. Which can be a bit annoying.

+ Original style / gameplay
+ Splatter bad guys all over the place
+ Lots of puzzles
+ Dark humor

- Puzzles can be a bit unclear
- Obnoxious soundtrack in menu (personal)
- Pricetag a bit high

All in all a funny puzzler with a very original style.

Fun...But Not for Too Long
The idea that you can manipulate the world around the bad guy to kill him is amusing. However as the levels progress, they get somewhat repetitive and it feels like you are doing the same this over and over again with little variation. However, for all those that enjoy the game and are not bored within an hour or so there are plently of levels to complete which provides for a substantial gameplay time.
There are gameplay elements that make this game somewhat frustrating to play. For example the camera doesn't rotate and you can only zoom in and out and this makes it hard for timing and perception purposes.
For the full-price that this game is asking for i would say that this game isn't worth it however if you get it discounted and you are interested in this sort of game then it is just a little bit worth picking up.

Kill The Bad Guy is a strategical action game where your main goal is to kill the "bad guy" .

Well when you start a single player in this game, you will find here a lot of levels to complete. The levels are grouped in some "stages" after complete a that stage levels you will find that a difficulty a bit grow more than before, for example you will find cameras what should avoid etc. Every level you can complete in different ways, but try always do even more bloody kill to reach a bigger high score. Also you will find here a collectible things like a passport or tooth and secondary objectives. Also in a game you will find a multiplayer feature with 4 different game mode: Serial Killers, Capture the flag, Godfather and Gang Supremacy.
The game graphic looks simple, but the style looks nice and well fit to the game. You will not find in a game too much sounds, but hey are okey.

So my verdict

+various possibilities to finish level
+interesting "bad guy" bios
+simple but nice graphic
+steam cards and achievements

-sometimes second objective can be too foggy
-not the best camera views

So i think if you are looking for a some fun and you are like that games where you should thinking a bit, also you fell a challenge to beat even bigger score, this game for you. A base price a bit high, but at sale when its get a bigger discount can be instant buy.

Fun concept but gets a bit repetitive after a while.

Interface is clunky and can be quite annoying.

Some nice jokes in there though.

It's one of the mmost brutal puzzle games I have played. Strategy game is not something I would call it though. The game is simple kill the bad guy. You get a scene with some options. These options can be combining stuff or be creative with some stuff to either impale, smash, run over, burn and a lot more the bad guy.

Interesting art style
Decent game play
Blood and gore could have been made a little bit better and more intense. I mean it looks good, but its to bad that there is so much blood and when you look at the body it has taken no damage.

I would recommend this game to people who like puzzle games. To people who is more for the action thrilled game with intese combat and that kind of stuff. THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. Feel free to use my video to see if this game is something for you. :D

I usually enjoy puzzle games, but this one was just a pain.

The bad guy's behavior is inconsistent(maybe a timing thing?) which really screws you when you need to make him walk to a specific part of the map. Sometimes he'll see a barrier and walk a different direction, but sometimes he'll notice it and still walk past it.

The camera is another big issue for me. Click and drag moves the camera, but it also does all your interactions, so you have all these conflicts when it gets to the point where timing is key. I'm sure you could do something about it, but I just don't have enough interest left to try anything.

Nothing is all too intuitive. You end up spending a majority of your time going through trial and error until you find something that works.

I didn't even bother with the multiplayer mode, so I can't speak to how that is.
