I've found a typo - There's a extended bonus, gruelling level inside a gigantic worm, in which lies an extremely rare instant-kill knife

The order of words is a little awkward, too. Perhaps There's a gruelling extended bonus level inside a gigantic worm... or some such might work better? And it eliminates your typo!

This, though, is a great review, dealing as much with the game as justifying sense of obsession some games seem to curse you with. I guess you'll have to retire your bio now and employ "used to fumble lucky wins on FIFA" instead.


For us. For them. For you.

Thanks for reading/subbing, and good spot there with the typo! I've used your suggested rewording, because it's (annoyingly!) better than what I had.

I was a bit worried I went into too much detail in places, so I'm glad you liked the review. You're right, my bio needs updating now. I'm thinking... "gets kicks from beating Gary at FIFA".

I have a pretty good idea of how hard and silly the game is based on your review, so I didn't think you went overboard with the details. As EmP said, it's definitely a solid read.

Wonder if this is the same Derek Yu that used to make submissions to the Video Game Museum site, back when I used to post regularly waaaaay back on their message boards? Well... until I was shunned and almost banned for what I thought was a harmless joke >_>. Anyway, it's good seeing him succeed with games such as Spelunky, if it is him.

Thanks! I appreciate the comments, and I'm happy the review worked for you as well.

I'm not very familiar with Video Game Museum, but Yu also designed Aquaria - another indie title.
