Forget-Me-Not, as if I could

Review #33 – Free Video Game

Forget-Me-Not, as if I could

Let's keep the arcade vibe going, shall we? After all, it's still Dazzling March!

Today's item comes from an unknown dimension. I may have set a precedent of playing things without fully grasping their rules, but this time it's not my fault. In Forget-me-not, you (and up to another player) run around a Pac-Man-like maze, trying to collect all the little flowers and securing the key to the exit. The problem is, there are so many different (and randomly chosen) enemies that I'm still finding new ones!

The difficulty here comes in two flavors:

The enemies interact with everything in a lot of weird ways. Some can destroy the level around you (making it possible to shot yourself in the back, thanks to warping screen borders), stealing your key, eating the flowers (making the level end faster, while making you earn less point), killing each other (fun, until they multiply and/or explode), and a lot more stuff.
Keeping track of everything is pretty hard without even taking into account that...

A direct confrontation with most enemies is impossible. Really. Even the most basic enemy will eat (quite literally, you'll see) at least half your life bar before dying.  And that's just the little ones.

You will find yourself having to employ interdimensional marksman tactics to kill them before they kill you.

Given that the enemies are randomly generated and that the difficulty is pretty high, it will keep fresh for a long, long time. Enjoy.
