Bad news everybody!

Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Wacky Funsters is a fun tongue-in-cheek game from Tsunami that is entertaining, although lacking in long-term play value. There is even a semblance of a plot: King Wacky of the Funsters gaming realm has summoned you, the nerdy gamer, to help rescue the land from the evil Duke Waynington. To do so, you must compete in 5 mini games, each of which is a parody of well-known games.

The five mini games range from enjoyable to downright abysmal. At the lowest end of the fun spectrum, Ping and Steroid are repetitive, bland, and simply very boring. Big Guys with Muscles is an okay fighting game that is very easy, but manages to keep the player's interest with innovative weapons and humourous attack moves. Rambi (from Rambo + Bambi) and Roadkill (variant of Sierra's Frogger) are by far the best of the bunch, as each of them features funny characters, challenging gameplay, and entertaining commentary.

The designers obviously wanted Wacky Funsters to be a funny game. The result, however, is a mixed bag due to inconsistency in game quality. Between the games, you can go back to visit the King for some humorous interludes, but after a while, you'd wonder whether this empire is worth saving after all. Fun for a few minutes, until you discover the much better sequel Geekwad Games of the Galaxy or Bloodlust's action games.
