About

The game genre is described as an “adventure.” The creators of the game claim that the game is a combination of the creators' favorite literature, movies, and cyberpunk, noir genres. Plot The game develops on planet Earth, in the ordinary world, in the atmosphere of the 50s, in the fictional location of Japanada. A top-secret espionage agency operating out of an abandoned subway station. The player controls Polyblank performing several missions given by the head of the organization. Missions are almost always bizarre and nonsensical. For example, all of them begin by ingesting a dose of prescription medicine. Missions include degaussing and smuggling pigeons, assassinating cowboys, cross dressing, killing a piggybacks, and photocopying. Gameplay The main content of the game is exploration and comedy over puzzle-solving. Each mission has a main goal, but the player can freely explore the world of the game, which is filled with many creatures and objects. There are also many mini-games. Managing a character is organized quite simply. Player can use the keyboard to move in all directions, jump, cycle through the player's inventory, and interact with highlighted objects. The mouse allows to manipulate the camera and look around. Bonus game mode "Wedding Quake» mode allows players try to shoot AI-controlled enemies with wedding-themed weaponry, like wedding cake, roses, champagne corks, in a Quake deathmatch-style contest.

JAZZPUNK It's hard to describe what JAZZPUNK is and why it's so good. This Article is, for me, arguably the hardest game review I've written so far, because it's about Humor, an Area that's traditionally hard to convey. Even if I can't offer an original Entry point, I hope you read this Review, because JAZZPUNK IS definitely the best, funniest and most interesting Game in recent Years for me. So Let's Start with what you can say about JAZZPUNK. It is a First Person Adventure From 2014 by the Developer Necrophone Games. You play In it the Agent Polyblank, who has to complete various Missions in a Cold War setting. One moves in quite open Levels, which have a lot of Side missions and Secrets to offer away from the Main Plot. The Graphic Style is minimalist, clear, symbolic and a little pop like. The Controls are just as simple and are limited to Mouse, WASD, SPACE key And ' E '. JAZZPUNK plays with the 4th Wall and usual Game Design Rules and offers many Allusions to game Classics and Agent Movies. Missions are usually started in the Office of its Director, who describes the Details of the Case, then gives one The tablets called "Missionol" and says goodbye. Taking these Tablets you are thrown into the Level you can explore and where you have to reach the Mission goal. After that, you leave the Level and return to the Director. What makes the Game so great in the process is its Humour. Unlike Games like Borderlands or Saints Row, it not only relies on pop-cultural References and pubertal Jokes, but above all offers plenty of absurd Humour. JAZZPUNK ALWAYS manages to surprise one. I'm bringing a few Examples now to express the Joke of the Game. I've compressed them as Spoilers, as some don't want to read it many times. I promise, though, that these 3 Paragraphs maximum Teases, which IS what JAZZPUNK DOES and don't rob you of the Fun of the Game, or give too much away. For example, after a Mission Meeting, the Director disappears behind his Desk, with the Statement "If you need me, I'll be in the Wine Cellar," even if there is obviously no Staircase. Another Time, the Mission goal is not hidden at the Beginning of the Level, and the Moment you run against it, the Writing disintegrates like a Glass Panel. You go to the Movies, where you can throw popcorn at Other Guests. You enter a Room through a Window, overturns, followed by a Tusch. You look at a Security Camera and that asks you what you look at so Blues. You eat a Pigeon, throw Shoes in a Waitress's Face, make a stamp in a Guestbook, open a BP Borehole in an Aquarium, play Mini-golf with a Football and a Billiard Queue and turn his Supervisor into a Crocodile. It's hard to Convey that now, but the Game is super witty and insanely absurd. Believe me, even if you have the Game in just over 2 Hours through, you have no regrets about spending £14.99on Steam. And it's always Funny to let friends play through It or play it again. The Game doesn't need a lot of Hardware, but you should be able to Speak English.
