Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 1 Review by Happyhead

I didn't even know this game had been released on Wii Ware I long ago gave up checking Wii Ware releases as they were so abysmal. As soon as I saw it was a point and click I immediatly downloaded it (I say immediatly but it took me over an hour to download it on my super slow connection).

I have never seen or even heard of the flash cartoon (?) the game is based on, as a result a lot of the jokes feel like they were passing over my head a bit, I'm sure they would mean something to people who have heard of Strongbad before. Despite this the game still made me laugh out loud in places (for example, the training montage).

The characters were all weird, but entertaining enough, and everything was nice and colourful. The locations were quite bland, especially the outside locations which were really sparse. The music was terrible mostly, entirely forgettable, not even doing its job as background noise.

My main complaint with this game would be the length and ease of it. I know episodic games wont be as long as normal full games, but I breezed through this in just over 2 hours, not getting stuck even once. I grew up on a diet of PC point and clicks, so after spending hours working out I had to hypnotise a monkey so that you could use it to turn off a waterfall in my youth, puzzles such as using a plunger as a makeshift platform presented no challenge whatsoever to me. I just don't think the game was worth £7 (1000 Wii points).

I really enjoyed the game while it lasted, it has replay value with collecting all the awards, and the side games, but I just am hesitant about getting episode 2, especially if it's so damn easy and short as this was.
