THE HD ADVENTURES OF ROTATING OCTOPUS CHARACTER
face it, Ringo usually got the kiddie songs in The Beatles. But if
you’ve assumed an octopus’ garden – whether shaded or not - to be
all breezy-easy, then you might wish to engage in another ponder.
How, you may well also ponder, can we be so confidently
confident in this assertive assertion? Well, we’ve been playing
extensively in an octopus’ garden – or, more precisely, an octopus
character’s garden (and city, desert, festival and more, too) - and
they’re abundantly abundant with perilous perils! Really real nasty
nasties! Horrible horrors! Nefarious, umm, nefarities? OK, we’ll get
on with it...
In this simple, yet alarmingly challenging,
two-button arcade puzzler, you control the destiny of Rotating
Octopus Character, a bilaterally symmetric cephalopod mollusc on a
mission to save bubba octopi from such perilous perils and nasty
nasties, etc, as big barking woofer dogs, rampaging police helmets
and... Well now, that would be telling!
Some 70-plus levels
feature to increasingly baffle the tactical neurons within your
cerebral cortex (or whichever part of the bonce in which the bit
that handles strategic planning is encased – seriously, do we sound
Poindexterical?!). All you have at your disposal is the ability to
jump or change direction, which of course is governed by where
you’re placed within your spin cycle at any given time, for this
eight-legged groove machine doesn’t have the word ‘Rotating’ in its
name without justification.
Unless you’re all genius-like
you’ll start off wondering “WTF?!” or even “WTFF?!” Mastering the
ways of the spinning skeleton-free personality takes much skill, and
you’ll likely have the poor thing going splattity-splat all over the
shop for a while before things get all clicky.
they do you’ll be happier than a Ringo with a royalty cheque. Warm
below the storm in his little hideaway beneath the waves, natch.
