Bloody Fun Day
What would Death himself do if he were surrounded by ultra-cute critters?
That is the question that has been boggling our minds for centuries, well finally that has been answered by 'urbansquall' in their flash game 'Bloody Fun Day'.
The game is a new take on some old puzzle based games and can be said to be similar to a bejeweled type of game. In the game you control death, use your scythe to kill the 'cuties' as you can see the picture on the left there are 4 different colored 'cuties' red gives you health or more turns and the other colors give you special powers. You can only move one tile in 6 directions per turn the aim is to survive for as long as you can and get the highest score.
The game play is overall good, however, it is a very repetitive game that after a short while you lose interest in, you will end up just randomly clicking on the closest tile not really caring about whether or not you survive. The game has been given a lot of positive reviews on other sites, a 4.08/5 on kongregate and a 4.26/5 on newgrounds. Don't get me wrong the game is good and i recommend playing it I just dont think it deserves much higher than a 3 or 3.5, that is why i have decided to give the game a 3.5/5.
Overall the game is a good new take on an old idea.
you can play it here at newgrounds.
