You Are Not A Banana reviews and comments

I "love" this pixel game ... Unfortunately again with a big BUT http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=645973852 I feel transported back to my Childhood and early Adolescence. I passionately Chose Zak McKracken, Paperboy and Last Ninja to play at Copping 64. And "You Are Not A Banana," that Gem on Steam, is a Bow to those game times. The Soundtrack is great, the simple Humour captures the Zeitgeist of the time and the Puzzles are stupid at times, but it was the same back then. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=646098108 I really Enjoyed the Game. And.. Once again ... And slowly I'm tired of writing this, too short, REALLY too short (even if it costs only €2). I would award the following Rating, If I leave out the Time Factor: (Retro) Graphic: 8/10 (Retro) Sound: 9/10 Gameplay and (crazy illogical) Story: 9/10 Beautiful (Retro) Reminders: 10/10 (preliminary) OVERALL rating: 9/10 BUT, I reckon the 30 minutes of Play time One I needed for the full Story, then unfortunately: Game circumference: 3/10 Price performance: 3/10 final therefore: * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 5/10 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * But only 30 Minutes if you don't run your way in the Cemetery (then the Game can take Hours) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=646097950 Excursion: Ready Player One Btw. recommend in this Context (if you liked the 80s and also the First video games back then) the Book "Ready Player One" (2010). The Book is set in a dystopian Future of 2044. The Exploitation of fossil Fuels completely destroyed the Earth, with the Result of a global energy and economic Crisis. In this bleak Reality, Humanity is escaping into the virtual Reality of OASIS. The late Inventor of this "Game world" has promised his Inheritance to those who find their "Easter-Egg" in the VR. But after Decades, there is not yet a single Success to solve the many Puzzles, of the Game and 80s fans, of programming. Until the Book'S 18-year-old main Character suddenly makes a Discovery ...
