If you haven't read my review of the first two games in this set, Homestar Ruiner and Strong Badia the Free, I recommend you do so. To avoid repetition, I won't go over the background of the series here. Here's your synopsis: Strong Bad is lovable and fluffy, in a rude, arrogant and stupid sort of way. Although this is a standalone game, I advise players unfamiliar with the story and characters to start by reviewing the first episode.
What I like about this series are the intuitive interface and simple menus, tutorials with every episode, the customizable map, the minigame (in this case a blatant ripoff of Defender called Hot Babelian Odyssey), and the trophies and other useless items. The humor is crude but not too vulgar. I had no technical issues with gameplay, audio or graphics in this episode. Player ranks were funny and related vaguely to glam rock, such as "Spandex Screamer" and "Big Hair Wailer." Heck, even Strong Bad's parody of Judas Priest's "Breakin' the Law" in the menu had me rolling ("Save and the Load, Save and the Load!").
At the beginning of the game, Strong Bad is playing Hot Babelian Odyssey on his old Fun Machine console when it spouts smoke and fries, just like in every gamer's worst nightmare - or at least in mine. Since the cost of repairing this ancient artifact involves a large sack of cash, and his favorite band "Limozeen" featured prominently in the minigame, Strong Bad comes up with the idea of staging a Battle Royale of the Bands (which he must then win) and using the profits to repair his plastic altar of 256-color gameplay."
