About This Game

You may already know Strong Bad from his regular appearances answering emails and doling out not-so-useful advice on Homestarrunner.com. Now he's the star of a five episode comedy series, Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People. With all new storylines co-written by the guys from Homestarrunner.com, you'll feel like you're inside Strong Bad's world. (You may even start to talk like him!) Each episode has a different theme and you get to hang out with with Homestar, The Cheat, Bubs — the whole crew. It's like a Strong Bad cartoon on steroids. As Strong Bad would say, what the crap are you waiting for?

Includes all 5 episodes:

  • Homestar Ruiner: When a practical joke goes awry, Strong Bad has to get the loafing Homestar Runner out of his house.
  • Strong Badia the Free: Join the Homestarmy and help Strong Bad bring down the corrupt King of Town.
  • Baddest of the Bands: Hurting for cash, Strong Bad turns to the gods of rock and roll for some divine inspiration.
  • Dangeresque 3: Strong Bad lands the role of a lifetime in this blockbuster movie event.
  • 8-Bit Is Enough: Trogdor's on the loose! Send the dragon packing and restore balance.

If your a Homestar Runner fan, get this game. If your not a Homestar Runner fan, watch all the Strong Bad Emails (by the way there are 204 episodes of Strong Bad Emails), Everybody to the Limit, and this years april fools toon. THEN get this game. Every episode is like a really long interactive sbemail (Strong Bad Email) and I love it! If I were to choose my favorite though it would be a tie between Strong Badia the Free, and Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective. I hope very much they would make a Season 2. In Conclusion, this game was worth every penny out of my dad's credit card.

If you're an adventure game lover that enjoys TellTale's other works, or you're just a web nerd that loves Homestar Runner, this game is a good one with a lot of detail and care put into it.

An excellent game for anyone who's a fan of the Homestar Runner universe and old-school point-and-click adventure games. If you like either of those things, this game is definitely worth it. Otherwise, you could probably skip it.

Really doesn't get enough love. Most of Telltale's pre-The Walking Dead games don't, really. It's actually super great, and I'd highly recommend it. Especially if you were on the internet back in 2006 and have fond memories.

Oh man, this entire series. I've probably been aware of the Homestar Runner cartoons for at least half my life now so there's already a mild degree of nostalgia here. And Telltale really delivers on the concept; the characters and writing all match well with the cartoons and it's just as funny as ever. I've always liked that comfy spot between "kid humor" and "adult humor" that they found, it doesn't show signs of either's stupidity but keeps the good parts of each, making it humor that basically anyone can enjoy.

As for the game itself, then. It's a competent point-and-click adventure. The only real moon-logic puzzles are for the optional collectibles, while the main storyline is generally easy to progress with only mild experimentation, and usually the plot guides you in the right direction. Plus there's a hint system if you really get stuck, so the game should easily be completable on its own. I used a guide to look up collectibles but little else. It's certainly fun and clever about what you need to do. The minigames in each episode are also all pretty diverse and interesting; they all bear a degree of stylistic suck and aren't too terribly complex nor difficult but they're worth the 15-20 minutes I tended to spend on them, and a nice diversion from the puzzling and slower pace of the main game.

For the episodes themselves; it's not really possible to buy them separate I think? But they're all pretty interesting and unique in their own way. The first episode is very straightforward and vanilla and a good introduction to the series. The second's theme is strong as well as inducing plenty an amusing moment, and also contains my favorite of all the minigames (and really the most content in general). The third is a bit weak on the first half but the second half returns to form (plus the music being played is just... special.) The fourth is more linear than the rest but has an entirely different atmosphere that basically necessitates this; it's probably the funniest out of all the episodes too. The fifth also has a strong theme and provides a satisfying finale for the season. Even if they really all have nothing at all to do with each other, since each episode is, like the cartoons, pretty much standalone.

All in all though I'd highly recommend this for fans of the cartoons and still would consider it worth checking out even if you know nothing about Homestar Runner.

It's quite amazing with all the amount of stuff they were able to put into this. It feels like a long series of actual episodes put into a game which counts itself as five. The puzzel solving plus the point and click aspect makes this a great title. Most people probably have a problem with the $20.00 price, but considering the length that the first episode has during your first playthrough (times that by 5) it's worth the price. I recommend this to the people who grew up with Homestar and who love point and click games. It was made by TellTale, who made The Walking Dead games, so you gotta know it's good.

Homestar Runner.com has been quiet for a long time but you can relive the everyday life of strong bad, homestar runner and all the other characters in this easy point and click adventure game.

If you were a big fan of Monkey Island, Sam and Max or Day of the Tentacle, You'll well understand the gameplay and creative thinking required for this adventure. Your HUD is simple too, You have your inventory of strange random objects that you pick up along the way, There is some collectables along the way for those who wanna get that 100% completion rating of the game. And just your mouse pointer which helps you choose where to walk, and what to intereact with.

Theres a lot of cut scenes and character interaction, So those who arent familar with the website or the characters, you will learn quickly the personalities of the cast in this game, There are some funny moments and some sneaky comments for the mature audience every now and then, Some dialog will have you laughing or smiling, But all of it will definately keep you entertained.

During the course of the game, you're welcome to explore the area as it grows and even play some mini games. I had a lot of fun with creating my own teen girl squad comic, but other mini games exist too. And of course, There are going to be some cryptic puzzles that will have you frustrated, trying every object in your inventory on everything, twice or three times just to be sure. And you'll have puzzles which are clearly given away or hinted by conversation with NPCs.

I bought this game recently, on my wishlist for a very long time because I didnt like the price but I ended up with like 5 episodes. Maybe I didnt read the store page correctly but I'd understand now why its 10 bucks, Im happy to play on and curious to see what happens next, It's highly colourful game and sticks well to the websites trademark look accompanied by it's fun music too...

so if you're a fan of the website, Then the game is clearly a must, however if you're not familar with the site, as I mentioned earlier, You'll still enjoy this game and learn what the cast is all about.

Ultimately, It's a point and click adventure and we haven't see a lot of these in a long time, but here's a good one.

Get it.

Amazing. A combination of two of my favorite things: Homestar Runner and Point-and-Click adventure games. I recommend this and any other Telltale game.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive people is a ncie point and click game. Each episode is very unique. As an adventure game you may find yourself stuck at times. Other times I swore up and down I had done everything then I redid everything and it turned out I didn't.
If you like the webseries Homestar runner there's a lot to love here. You learn a lot about the characters and they're each well represented and voiced.
The games aren't exactly hard, but more on the average scale. Poking around for missed items and clues will sometimes yield a special item. I don't remember if something special happens when you collect them all but you might get an attaboy. The only collectible quest I really tried on was one with Teen Girl Sqaud because you could make your own TGS comic where you kill them all. They're also voiced.
It's not really like Telltales' more recent efforts, it's closer to the Sam & Max series. That probably sums up whether you'll like this series.

This one is one of my favorite point-and-click adventure games. And it's made by Telltale Games and the guys behind the Homestar Runner website. You control the main character and main icon of the show Strong Bad as you destroy people's days, the Strong Bad way. 5 episodes are made, including the long awaited Dangeresque 3. Give it a try if you're into point-and-click adventure games and Homestar Runner cartoons.

And for the PS3 users, I recommend you should play the entire season of this game for plenty of trophies and achievements.

If you're a fan of Homestar Runner (not that anyone's a fan of THAT guy) you'll really enjoy this incredibly convoluted game, filled with in jokes, sbemails, and the Poopsmith. Because he's in there.

Point-and-click sabotage, old-style. Definitely recommended if you loved the HSR cartoons, although you don't need to know anything about HSR to play it - but it'll definitely help.
