Just when you thought you were safe in the other thread...
I downloaded Orbz 2.1 from Garage today. You get 60 minutes play time with the demo - brave, on their part. Can they convince me in an hour that I want to play their game? (I know of people who've played my game for days and not completed the demo).
, I was hooked on Orbz after about 15 minutes. I played it right through until my time was up and I was just really enjoying myself
. Those clever sods!
What is it in Orbz that makes it so fun
? It's got lame graphics that could easily be done in J3D
, and atrocious MIDI music. It doesn't even perform particularly brilliantly on my midrange laptop - I can see it regularly dropping below the magic 50fps.
But it's just... strangely addictive.
(Reading between the lines you can see that I'm impressed by Orbz, and I might just have to buy it)
So go on: let's analyze Orbz and break out its constituent parts and find out why I want to buy it.
