Conclusion: DLC looks like it might be in the game's furture because it's menu has a option for DLC. Conclusion: Help this hidden game gain some popularity. Try the demo/trial. It will give you a REALLY good representation of the game. If 800 MS Points is in your budget, and you like it, I would unlock the full game. If not, you can wait, and it might drop in price again. Personally, I enjoyed it, but it's probably not for everyone!
Summary: At 800 Microsoft points " Lazy Raiders " offers a lot of easily accessible play that could appeal to anyone looking for a more active puzzle experience. Just powering through the eighty levels took me around four hours, but I would not claim to have been trying for high score.
Excerpt: A game with a different slant. If you ever felt that the world revolves around you, then this is the game for you. Lazy Raiders uses a revolve the game world around the character in order to make it through the mazes and obstacles. A wild and crazy concept that may not be new, (think way back with the whole tilt a box to move a marble through a maze concept) but it is the coolest thing I have ever seen in a game world. Simple , yet unbelievably enticing.
Excerpt: Dr. Diggabone isn’t much of a self-starter. It makes you wonder how he ever got into the field of archaeology. With a name like Diggabone, you’d figure he was born into the role of a plump Indiana Jones impersonator, although he contradicts this image with a delightful mustache curling away from his pear-shaped face.
Excerpt: Lazy Raiders is a game that's all about doing one thing well. Instead of trying to include a story that stands out from the crowd, a striking visual style, or a variety of game modes, developer Sarbakan has focused on taking their unusual idea for an action-puzzle game and crafted it into something simple and fun. The game tells the story of Dr. Diggabone, a treasure hunter on a quest to get rich with as little exertion as possible.
Conclusion: But is it all too subtle for some? We think it could be. Lazy Raiders is not a game for those who obsess over glitzy presentations. Nor is it heavy on the graphic action. Moreover, although it nicely ramps up the challenge as you plunge deeper into it, it does tend to feel a bit repetitive. Maybe that has something to do with the clock—or rather the lack of it. There is a clock, actually, but defeating it isn’t a life and death thing. It’s just a bonus.
Excerpt: Indiana Jones has been raiding tombs since 1981. Lara Croft got in on the action in 1996. Nathan Drake half-tucked his shirt and headed underground in 2007. And now, in 2010, it's Dr. Diggabone's turn. Other than his desire to locate lost relics, the rotund hero of Lazy Raiders has very little in common with his forebears. He doesn't have a gun, he's not athletic in the slightest, and he's too lazy to walk or run anywhere even when his life is threatened.
Pros: Novel take on ball-in-maze concept, You won't ever get so stuck on a level that you can't pass it, Colorful and pleasingly detailed art style, You can play as and unlock items for your avatar
Cons: Occasionally confusing visuals, Levels don't consistently get more challenging as you progress
Summary: Overall a fun experience and nice twist on the tilty maze concept. Lazy Raiders is fun to play, but can be off-putting when you can't quite make out your character's position on the screen. It's full of neat little touches (injure yourself during the level to finish wrapped in bandages) that keep the fun coming. The level design is inventive and there's more treasure than you'd find in a Cash My Gold envelope.
