Slacker's Guide Takes A Look At Kill Dr. Cote, Lugaru
7:56 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
On Friday the MacObserver posted a new Slacker's Guide feature, this time taking a look at Kill Dr. Cote, by Justin Ficoratta, and Lugaru, by Wolfire Software. According to the guide both games are a good way to spend a hot summer day away from the scorching heat.
True, the idea may not be completely original, but Ficarrotta recreates a classic almost to perfection. Kill Dr. Cote even drew enough attention to draw the adoring glances of the monkey-lovin' Freeverse Software, which tapped him to help create their Kill Monty shooter using his work as a template. Overall game play is both fun and challenging and tactics become critical as players must learn to control a veritable tide of opponents rushing towards them via limited means. Strategies may range from confronting the mass head-on to aiming grenades towards the center mass of the mob to a movement pattern that strafes around the edge of the screen and focuses on remaining alive...The entire article can be read at the link below. Demos of both games can be downloaded from Macgamefiles.com.
MacObserver: The Slacker's Guide
...Unlike anything you've ever played, Lugaru uses an adjustable camera system with standard movement and control keys to allow players to move across the terrain, grab weapons, jump and initiate combo attacks against opponents. One of the most technologically advanced shareware titles you may ever see, the game features fully detailed models, intricate textures, extensive levels (which come in handy when sneaking around a group of enemies or in luring individual opponents out for one on one combat), extraordinarily precise rag doll physics (mistime a landing as you jump onto a slanted surface and the character will fall) and a sound system that makes you glad you bought your external speakers, Wolfire has done their homework and it shows.
