Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Attractive People – Episode 4 (Wii): COMPLETED!

I only started playing it this morning, but already it’s completed. It wasn’t shorter than previous episodes, just a little easier and I had quite a bit of play on it throughout the day.

It was different to previous episodes in that you’re acting out a film that Strong Bad has made, called Dangeresque 3. A badly made film, of course. As a result, all the usual locations in the game have been repurposed as bits of set, and all the characters are new characters. If you see what I mean.

It was as funny as previous episodes, and I’ve downloaded Episode 5 ready for next time! Looks like that’s the last one though, which is a shame. Boo! At least there’s Wallace and Gromit and Sam and Max here or almost here to fill the void!

I’ve actually had this installed on my Wii since before Christmas, but hadn’t played it as I was goingt o use it as a baby-in-one-hand, controller-in-the-other last resort sort of thing, since it only requires one hand to play.

I started it on Friday, and it’s nice to play Strong Bad again. It’s funny, like before, and each episode so far has been vastly different, so although all the characters and locations recur, it’s not a rehash of the same stuff.

The aim in this episode is to organise a Battle Royale of the Bands, and so far I’ve managed to create the world’s most awesome album cover (so I could win the prize to get some crusty old rock band to come and judge the contest). Next up is finding the bands to take part!

And quickly, too. It seems that reading the Help that comes with the board game thing actually helps, as it tells you that a fight that results in a draw means the opposing side can’t move. With this, I used The Cheat to prevent Strong Mad from moving, Homsar to ground Strong Sad, Coach Z to distract Homestar, and The Poopsmith to hide The King of Town every move.

In 9 moves, I’d won both the battle, and the game. Hurrah!

OK, so I managed to convince both Pompom and Homsar to join my country, leaving Homestar and Strong Mad. Strong Mad had me puzzled for ages, until I realised what to do with my sword, and then he gave me something I could use to rig the Draft Wheel making Coach Z join the Homestarmy.

So, with the army assembled and all the countries joined as one, I became King of Town!

Only now I don’t want to be any more, so I have to play a board game to make the old King win, so he comes back to the castle. Or something. But I can’t win it as it’s too hard.

Yes, I downloaded Episode 2. After Episode 1, I couldn’t just leave it, could I? No, of course not. The plot of this one is that everyone in town has set up their own country. It seems that I have to get them all to become part of Strong Bad’s empire – Strong Badia. I’m yet to manage this though, having not persuaded anyone to join.

It’s still funny though!

I love point and click adventures, and I had a load of spare Wii points from when I bought Mega Man 9. So it was only a matter of time before I bought SBCG4AP (as the game refers to itself as).

And? It is amazing. Very few games are genuinely funny, and fewer still are actually hilarious, but this? This is real actual side splittingly funny. I was aware of Strong Bad (the web “thing”), but knew very little about it, so was surprised that it wasn’t just full of in-jokes. Of course, it may still have them, but the dialogue, characters and references are plenty to be getting on with.

So far, I’ve figured out I have to win The Race to the End of the Race, and have managed to dress myself up as Homestar. I’ve rigged some of the race, but Pompom still keeps winning. Hmm.
