El Ballo Reviewed
8:20 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macteens recently posted a review of El Ballo, Ambrosia Software's adult side scrolling adventure game. The game follows the exploits of El Ballo as he attempts to save his home planet of Testicular from the evil Doctor Cough. The game's humor and gameplay helped to give El Ballo a score of 4 out of 5 stars from Macteens.

From the review:

How can Ambrosia sell this game you might ask? Well, they do offer a Parental Control option, that lets you set a password to unlock the nude content when the children are sleeping (we know that you want to). This also renames some of the characters and places, so that it isn’t as dirty. The only problem with this is that if your child knows anything about Mac OS X, such as how Preferences work, they can simply delete the preferences while still retaining their game saves in order to gain access to the “exclusive” content. Really though, all the seemingly “adult” content is more humorous than dirty. Being what some might call a “fickle youngster”, I absolutely see no problem in someone over the age of 12 or 13 playing this game. I saw much worse than this in Nintendo Power or National Geographic when I was 10. I didn’t ask my parents any awkward questions.
