Hop For Your Life In Dork
7:31 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The Slacker's Guide has released another review, this one focusing on the unusually named Dork. Similar to the classic game Frogger, Dork puts you in the role of an insect attempting to collect items and avoid enemies while hopping his way across the map. The Guide recommended the game, noting Dork's well conceived level design and enjoyable gameplay.

Albeit simply designed, Dork is well crafted with regard to level design as well as graphics and sound. The levels themselves, though not adorned with 3D graphics and particle explosions, become more interesting as the game progresses. Where just a few moving ramps and platforms greet the player in the initial stages of the game, later stages will embody moving ramps, rotating platforms, obstacles such as fire pits, additional wandering enemies and a network of rubberized walls for the player to bounce off of as they attempt to reach new areas of the map.

The graphics are understated, easy to understand and practical, while top-notch audio work makes the game fun (noises like "Hep!" as the player jumps, cool scarfing sounds and brief yelps when the player is eaten add to the feel of the game). What's present may not be on the marquee level, but it blends together well and makes for a fun game to kill some time with.
