Conclusion: I enjoy a challenging platformer, but only if the controls are tight and consistent. Failure should be a matter of making mistakes and success the result of correcting those mistakes, and No Time to Explain fails on both counts. In the end it's all frustration and no fun.
Conclusion: We have gone full circle and again we are in a golden age of indie game development with indies producing some really amazing alternative and original content that the likes of EA and Activision just don't know how to do.
Summary: Ok, so No time is brilliant and manic, go buy it. That is all… Nah I am Just kidding, and I shall explain why. The game is brilliant, it will keep you on your toes guessing what is going to happen next.
Conclusion: No Time to Explain is insanity at its finest and funniest, with plenty of ludicrous scenes throughout the game. But the fun and fast paced gameplay is brought down by imprecise controls and hideous boss fights designed to test your patience.
Excerpt: Sometimes a developer is so eager to get their game out to the public, they can be a little too quick on the draw. When the trailer for No Time to Explain was released in early 2011, and gathered huge interest online, studio tinyBuild Games had a game on its hands that wasn’t really fixed up very...
Pros: Pretty funny at times. Lots of neat ideas thrown together.
Cons: Rather buggy. Controls aren’t great. Rubbish boss battles.
Excerpt: If I were a lesser being, I’d introduce this piece about No Time To Explain with some sort of joke about how I do indeed have time to explain, and I’ve done exactly that below. But I’m not. I’m the even worse sort of being who writes it anyway, but pretends he’s above it.
Summary: A small indie team by the name of tiny Build GAMES was able to rather successfully fund a hardcore platformer using Kickstarter. In fact, they did such a good job at bringing in funds that they are now able to work on No Time To Explain post-launch and create a story-concluding second season.
Excerpt: I really don’t but I thought I’d post something just as a filler for today. I’ve been on quite a roll posting on consecutive days and I didn’t feel like letting it go just yet. I’ll tell you why I’m unable to ramble on and spend my time writing to my heart’s content.
