I got to the vertical stage twice and lost all my lives each time. That flippin' ball thing just flies straight at you.

In fact, if push came to shove, I'd say that Kosmic Kanga is the best game I've ever played.
That must have been one hell of a push :o

That's all very well in the horizontal levels, but it's a real shitshow on the vertical ones.

I agree. That vertical 3rd stage gets me every time. I'm better off spending all my time in stage 1 and 2 to rack up as much points as possible.

So, just channel your inner marsupial, embrace the spirit of the "mighty Kanga" and conquer that pesky 3rd stage :) (avatar changing is optional)
Wait, what? There are other stages?! :shock:

*mind explodes*

Say what you will about Kanga, it definitely is the most talked about game of this HSC and a board-wide trend. That's gotta count for something!

BONUS GAME BONUS GAME BONUS GAME BONUS GAME BONUS GAME BONUS GAME BONUS GAME

So this being Marmite Round, we will of course stay in this spirit for the Bonus Round.

And what's a better candidate for that than a roguelike?

Ernesto's Adventures (2019, NedoPC Group & Outsiders)

It's a game from the last year's Yandex compo. One of this genre's staples is learn-as-you-go, so there is no handy manual, but it ain't rocket science either. If you're really stuck though we can always hash it out here.

I think you win the game if you get to level 5 and find that "cave king Maraken", so that's one of the aims. We can also see who amasses most money/experience. The problem is that once you die it all disappears, so maybe take scr$ when you're feeling flush.

:twisted: Have fun :twisted:

Kosmic Kanga - This game is horrendous and I hate it. The fact that my best score was only 400 and summit has nothing to do with how much I hate this game

I can see I've chosen the wrong hobby! Perhaps I should take up knitting?
