Hillbilly Whack! Review at Download.com

"This program's humorous subject matter amuses us much more than its simple gameplay does. In this backwoods adventure, you must rescue your beloved from the hands of the evil Clem McSnide, by performing a number of tasks while avoiding your foes. For example, in the first story, you must rebuild your shack while avoiding enemy henchmen. If you get hurt, you can punch-out mules and pigs to reinvigorate yourself. Hillbilly Whack isn't particularly challenging, as we managed to complete the trial version's three levels without expending much effort. We were just as disappointed with the game's crude, blocky graphics, as we were with its virtually nonexistent feature set. We would have at least liked the ability to mute the sound. Although it's good for a quick laugh, Hillbilly Whack probably won't be an engrossing option for anyone but younger children."


Heh - we'll take it. It's nice to get 3 out of 5 for your first title. On reviewing the review, the next version will have loads more gameplay elements, and yes you'll even get to mute the sound. It's amazing me to me that people don't often get the "blocky graphics" and miss the Classic Gaming angle. Expect the game to be a bit more challenging in Hillbilly Whack! Zombie Attack! as well.

Overall - getting the game out, having people in general really like it, and hitting the mark with the humor - we are really happy. Oh yeah - and 125,000 downloads can't be that bad right?
