Review of 'Dr. Maddo'

Rating:1 User: WhenIWasCruel

It starts with appalling graphics, but we know that graphics are not everything and can hide a greatly playable game, so we go on and play Dr Maddo and we find that it's appallingly unplayable too. There are jerkily animated gorillas on the top of the screen throwing lethal white dots at you, maybe the most stylized possible way to depict cocoanuts, you are this barely human sketch of gametic matter, tormented by a fly or butterfly constantly entering the screen from the right side, while you shoot dementedly at a sort of door with an arrow drawn on it, that you must destroy pixel by pixel, dozens of them, in order to get out of this nightmare. Of course I KNOW what else awaits me through that door: more rooms with more doors to be destroyed pixel by pixel while you're harassed by more despicable creatures. I gave up before I could get out of the first room. There's only one thing this game is good at: being bad.

p.s. Ok, the loading screen is nice in a psychedelic/warholian way:
