Have Game, Will Play: Kill The Bad Guy

People who have committed awful crimes have gotten away with them. This does not sit well with a disembodied narrator and, possibly, you. The narrator has either bestowed or simply recognizes your ability to set up situations where these terrible people meet a gruesome death.

Levels in Kill The Bad Guy typically begin with a target walking along a path and it is up to you to scan the environment and created a situation to take them out. Each stage can take place over a period of days, which are more like turns. Days pass when the bad guy gets to the other side of the environment alive and well. You fail when you mess up a key objective or when a target runs away. Players are rewarded for taking out the target in fewest amount of days along with meeting other objectives. Finding a hidden passport and, upon their demise, catching the marks tooth will satisfy sub-primary objectives.

Setting an adult magazine on the ground, waiting for the target to become distracted by it and impaling them with a spear is a good example of a level. Launching a grand piano with a slingshot made with a tree is an even better one. Kill The Bad Guy has its share of brutality. While many of these levels are great others are insanely frustrating. The flexibility was often lacking, levels with seemingly one obtuse solution were quite vexing. There wasn’t really a flow for the difficulty and that periodically assassinated my enjoyment.
