DescriptionRandy Balma: Municipal Abortionist is a disturbing game in which very few clues are given about the goals and the background. In the beginning of the game, an old, half-naked man is shown, telling how he is completely drugged up. This is followed by four gameplay segments with an unusual design.
In the first part, the player controls a bus from a top-down view on a highway. While the camera rotates around the road, the player needs to follow the direction of the arrow. While driving, the controls constantly reverse, causing the bus to crash into the side of the road (drum sounds) or into one of the many red cars, which then explode into large, coloured clouds.
In the second segment the player steers a clock tower through the skies and eventually space, hitting objects highlighted by arrows, such as huge iron pipes and satellites. With each hit, a bottom part of the clock tower disappears.
The third segment takes place on the clock tower's clock. The player controls a small yellow man that needs to take out three coloured balls. Movements is characterized by the lack of gravity, causing the player to constantly move in a straight line with only limited control to correct the direction. The man bounces off the sides of the clock, but by landing on circular baby faces, he can move around them to launch into a new direction.
The fourth and final sequence has the player control a baby head, with octopus-like arms consisting of mouths and small hands. The head needs to be steered into the direction of other baby faces, while a background of yellow, red and blue spins at a very high rate, making it almost impossible to focus on the screen.
The game contains flashing images which may cause photosensitive epileptic seizures. The game is entirely controlled by arrows on the keyboard and joypads are also supported.
