The comp.sys.sinclair crap games competition 2015 -

it's crap! In a funky skillo sort of a way.

Optical Illusions

Two reviews in one day? Anyone would think I’d been moaned at for the lack of updates. Right, I’ll make this (mercifully) short then.
OpticalIllusions
It’s a game by Simon Ferré that doesn’t feature pirates (although oddly enough, Simon’s covering email was written in pirate language). You have to work out if the optical illusions are optical illusions or not.

If you want to experience the full slow loading horror then turn fast loading off in your emulator. And, erm, that’s more or less all I’m going to write, because I’ve still got nine more games to review, I’m being shouted at from upstairs because I haven’t poured out the gin and tonic yet, and I’m about to watch some telly. So you should go and play the thing for yourself, shouldn’t you?

Score: ∞ out of 100 (Who are you – M.C. Escher? Ed.)

  1. It says that all responses should be one letter. So when I saw “Can you tell what this says?”, I resolved not to be tricked, and typed “Y”: yes I can see. It said I was wrong 🙁

    1. Ha, I did the same. 50 sqijillion bonus crap points to Simon!

    2. Very nice graphics for the horizontal lines and duck/rabbit. Again, I also entered Y for the reading test and failed!!
      Typed in the full sentence and won. Bonus points for that error.

      Surely not a keyword challenge game though.

      1. Correct, it’s not a keyword challenge game. It’s, erm, for another challenge which I haven’t set yet. *hastily removes Challenges tag*

  2. There’s nothing like confusing instructions to make a crap game even crapper (if that’s a word).
