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.

Excellent game if you're a fan of Homestar Runner! Probably confusing if you're not!

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.

Overpriced comedy. I bought all these on WiiWare and had a blast, these games are full of humor and charm like only Homestar Runner and Telltale could bring. Sadly, the price is way too high for a game that's 5 years old. If you are willing to make an investment to play one of the last Homestar Runner adventures, I wouldn't doubt you for a moment.

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.

So much to do. Modern adventure games, look at this. Look at this and know that it is ok to not be on rails.

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.
