MORON frees the King

The Good

I like the humor of all games. Original ideas were remade, and now games look like different solutions of modern problems. There are educational elements implemented in trivia and players can test their knowledge in aerospace area of sciences.

The Bad

There is only one word (MORON) to solve and CHEAT as cheat word. This game for one player per program. If other player start the game, it begins from point left by previous player. After freeing the king you don't need to do anything but play five games until you are tired. To avoid this problem you have to delete the save file and, consequently, all records you have made. So player can challenge only himself, or other players must be not interested in freeing the king.

The Bottom Line

The game is very good for all, who liked Arcade classics Frogger, Defender, Invaders, etc., but already tired of their original idea and want a fresh one. It isn't hard to make a record higher then default high score and to free the king, so players as every arcade player must be interested in beating their scores. For those, who want to test their knowledge, trivia is presented. The questions are interesting and sometimes correct answers shock player's imagination. The game is good for ego-player and his alter ego also.
