“This is a game about killing, but it's a fun, lightweight game about killing that mostly succeeds by blending cunning logic- and physics-based puzzles with a great sense of humor.”
7/10 – Gamespot

“While it’s not right to seek vengeance (Romans 12:19), as a parent, I don’t mind letting a tree fall over and kill this guy.”
80% – ChristCenteredGamer

“Si vous voulez un puzzle game joli (épuré, mais joli), sanglant, marrant et conséquent (les niveaux bonus sont vraiment chouettes), Kill the Bad Guy est un bon achat.”

About This Game

I - KTBG: the original single-player puzzle game
II - Gangs of Bad Guys: the new multi-player mode (beta)

I - KTBG


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 each level, you’ll have the chance to splatter and destroy the Bad Guy using various weapons and traps. It’s up to you to make sure he ends up in the wrong place at the right time.

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!

“Until your mission is accomplished we don’t exist. If you fail, you’ll be the only person at fault, and we’ll deny ever knowing you.”

Features
TRACK YOUR TARGET in 60 levels, each one more original than the last, and unlock 6 completely off-the-wall bonus levels.
USE YOUR IMAGINATION as you take out the criminals one by one. Find the opportune moment to act, and make it as bloody as you can!
BECOME THE AMBASSADOR OF DEATH and make full use of all the different traps available. Sabotage vehicles, transform daily objects into deadly weapons, or combine different elements in order to create new ones.
WORK IN THE SHADOWS. Don’t draw attention to yourself. Cameras, pedestrians, cops and the Bad Guys’ bodyguards mustn’t suspect you. No one should ever doubt that these deaths are anything but unfortunate accidents.
TRY, TRY AND TRY AGAIN as you take advantage of the game’s replay feature. Get the top score, fulfil the secondary objectives, find new ways to kill each Bad Guy, and work on your murder skills.
SOCIAL SHARING. Show off your killing prowess and achievements to your friends, and prove that you are the world’s top justice seeker.

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 ...

Interesting concept and quite fun for a few levels. However, two things kinda ruin it:
- the lack of camera rotation
- the inability to turn off moving the screen around by holding left click

Especially the latter is irritating, since you activate stuff by left clicking as well, and many objects require a precise dragging motion within a specific area. The later puzzles require some absurdly strict timing and it's way too easy to miss and move the screen by mistake, making you restart and shout profanities at the screen.

Note: This review was written and published before the inclusion of the game's multiplayer feature and thus it is not mentioned throughout.

Watching over a man in a garish yellow jacket and a bullseye mask while rigging various death traps conveniently placed into his path, one might feel like a god. Granted, a god that will ultimately be faced with ending the life of a being lesser than itself in order to proceed, but a god all the same.

That's the basic premise of Kill The Bad Guy. It's a game where you'll be doing little else than what it says on the tin.

Certainly there's some degree of enjoyment in the act of killing what the game builds up to be one of many comically exaggerated abominations toward humanity. Whether it be smashing them with an oncoming vehicle to see their body flying off into the distance or diverting their path so that they just happen to pass beneath a sign sharp enough to decapitate them. The array of options afforded to accomplishing the core goal varies from level to level, with some feeling almost depressingly empty at times.

What the game lacks in an abundance of diversity, it attempts to compensate by offering a stylized presentation and a (sometimes dark) sense of humor.

The spare use of color in the world opens up the possibility to have memorable death tableaus, with the previously white surroundings often becoming awash with the blood of a given bad guy. Think of it as a literal take on the opening credit sequence from the film adaptation of American Psycho. Much of the game's intended humor comes in the form of flavor text provided for each of the game's 60 or so bad guys. Many are parodies of real world figures (Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Justin Bieber, etc.) with equally fictionalized takes on their criminal acts or atrocities, as the case may warrant.

For all its style, humor and simple yet deceptively complex premise, Kill The Bad Guy suffers from a number of flaws. Chief among them being a woefully inadequate and frustrating camera system, an interface that often hinders more than it helps and AI that seems prone to random outbursts.

Overall, Kill The Bad Guy is interesting, violent to an absurd degree and often challenging (though at times for the wrong reasons) but becomes repetitive far too quickly. Some questionable design choices and lingering bugs aside - you have a game that, once finished entirely, won't leave you with a strong desire to replay it.

Even though I do not recommend this game, I do recommend to those who find this appealing. I highly recommend buying on sale as stated price does not feel worth it.

Kill the Bad Guy has been on my wishlist for a while. I like games where there is an overhead view of everything and seemingly anything can be manipulated. Kill the Bad guy is a puzzle type game where the player can use one or more objects (by combining them) to eliminate the target. The game doesn't change in any sense beyond that, you are buying a puzzle game where you will have about 60 levels of killing the target in certain scenarios given certain objects. Adding a steam workshop or some sort of community involvement probably would have added another layer of re playability to this game.

Objects are selected and have to be moved by clicking the move icon (obviously). It's not quite drag and drop, but more of click, click, and try clicking over here to see if they combine. The indicating icons above objects help diversify what can be connected with what. What is neat though is that multi-player was given in the game. Once the game is done, there isn't really much else, but from time to time multi-player is worth coming back to. Just sucks if your friends don't have it because there is a shortage of players.

The game is good by premise, but I feel it could have been better. Adding a community mod behind it, allowing for customizable levels (or a level builder), maybe even custom items would have been interesting. Mini-games even could have made another impact. Multiplayer definitely does give it a backing now and makes it worth a second look. Re playability isn't critically high, but it's somewhat there.

As a standalone game the rating is 6.6/10, as an Indie

Rating : 7.3
