Review of 'Cookie'

Rating:4 User: The Dean of Games

I really had a love/hate relationship with 'Cookie'. I loved every single thing about the game, but boy was it hard!! A couple of years ago I discovered somewhere a simple follow thru routine that gets you past each level easily without the aid of infinite lives. I tried it and it worked.

I completed the game in minutes. At the end I was so happy and at the same time infuriated for 2 decades of repressed frustration, that I shouted my lungs out with the phrase: In your face MF!!
It took away years of therapy from me. Thank you Cookie.

Moving on...

Cookie is a very simple game, very straightforward. Everything happens fast and it gets you hooked quickly. The cute looking characters set the style for almost all Ultimate games with the eyes of the main character being almost a trademark for every game made by this company. It's hard, very frustrating. I bashed my keyboard several times on account of this little game. But it's also lots of fun.

Decidedly not the best game from Ultimate games, but it's nonetheless a great game and classic of the early days.
