The Good: Hilarious, lots of boobs, funny art style
The Bad: Poor animations leads to cheap deaths, no hints on what to do
Robin Hood is a game that doesn’t care. It does what it does and doesn’t let anyone stop it. Hero of Hope is a very risque take on Robin Hood with flash drawn still cut scenes, amateur voice acting, and lots of boobs. While it makes the game sound cheap it actually works with the game and it’s quirky sense of humor.
The game plays relatively easy with a left and right arrow to move Robin around and you can aim your bow by normal aiming means. You can duck and use your sword for close quarters, and it all works well…for the first couple of levels.
Thanks to the game’s cheap animations it makes judging doges and ducks hard. The game has a tendency to know give you any hints on how to beat bosses, and there are endless waves of enemies and no checkpoints. You get three lives and then you die and have to start the level all over again and after awhile I just gave up. You will get through endless wave, lose two lives, then proceed and lose your next and you have to start all over again.
The voice acting is amateur and done by the developers and their friends, but it compliments the animations and makes the game really funny. I just wish the game play was more solid and it wasn’t so difficult to do the simplest things. Is it worth a purchase? Sure for a dollar you good a good game, but just expect to restart a lot.
