Indie Wonderland: Megabyte Punch

Megabyte Punch, by Reptile Games. Another game that I don’t really have anything interesting to say about in advance. It was gifted to me by my occasionally-fellow-writer and always-fellow-awful-punsmith X2-Eliah as a Christmas gift, and placed in my ever-expanding backlog for a rainy indie day. And hey, guess what kind of day this is!

Alright, that’s a little harsh: I was actually a little interested in Megabyte Punch upon first getting it. The name intrigues, summoning images of either computerized brawling or an awful, awful pun-off. Or both! Maybe it’s like insult sword fighting, except with really bad computer puns. “Mice to meet you”, that sort of level. “You’re about to USB defeated!” “I’ll drive you so hard you’ll run crying for your motherboard.”

It probably won’t be, but a man can dream.

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, low. Mechanical, medium.)

After the break: turns out I was actually partway right! Not about the brain-searing puns, though, *luckily*.
