Ripten Review: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People - Episode 1: Homestar Ruiner

Ripten writes: "Let me make this quick. If you like the quirky humor and nonsensical shenanigans of Strong Bad and Homestar Runner enough to pay $8.95 for a point-and-click episode of the web series, this game is right up your alley. Everyone else, save that money and go buy a yo-yo or a lottery ticket. It'll keep you entertained far longer.

Bottom Line: 2

Hit the jump to see Strong Bad get a taste of his own verbal pummeling.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People isn't a bad game, for one simple reason. It's not a game. What it is, amongst other things, is an exercise in futility, a journey into the heart of boredom, and a nearly pointless waste of time. I say nearly pointless, because the 'game' is a point-and-click escapade, in which players direct Strong Bad around the Homestar Runner neighborhood in a quest to "pummel" the titular armless white guy. Along the way, Strong Bad encounters other characters from the web series, and can choose to converse about heady topics such as the war in Iraq, this year's election and the state of the economy."
