Comment: Ogre Bounce is one of GameOgre’s ogre games, and is a 2D arcade-like game. In my opinion, Ogre Bounce could be better, if it was better developed, but as of now, it isn’t something that entertains me at all.In Ogre Bounce, you control an ogre. What else. It’s a very simple game where you move, using the arrow keys. This is, however, not explained anywhere in the game. Instead the game starts off instantly. Even though it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out how to control your ogre, I still think that it would be better that it could at least say somewhere that you play the game through your arrow keys.
At first, Ogre Bounce only had two levels, although now there are four of them instead. I do think that it’s nice that they have added more levels to the game; however, I think the levels added are quite unnecessary. The game isn’t hard at all, and all of the levels are of the same difficulty. The game is way too easy in my opinion, and can be completed in just a minute if you are fast.
The point of the game is to simply get to the door at the end of the level. To pass a level, you will have to gather the key, placed somewhere. Once you’ve collected the key, you can go to the door, to pass the level, and proceed to the next one. There are also coins that you can collect, in order to get a higher score in the game. This is very easy though, as all of the coins can be seen clearly, and are very easy to collect as well.
The graphics of Ogre Bounce is solid. It got some nice textures as well as a colorful background. But it’s nothing advanced, and is rather simple. With other words, the graphics aren’t bad, but they aren’t something special either. It’s something that we have seen in many other arcade games. There are also minor bugs in the game. Sometimes it seems like the ogre is floating in the air, like it somehow got wings. It might not be anything that affects the gameplay, but it can be annoying for the picky person. There’s nothing to discuss about the sounds though, as the game is completely soundless. No sound at all, which is a little dull.
Overall, Ogre Bounce is a simple game. It’s too easy and it takes too fast to complete it. There’s just not much to it. You collect the coins, easily, and finish the level. Once you’ve completed the game, it shows your final score, however the score is quite useless to be honest, as it’s not saved (not like it needs to, since everyone will probably gain the max score possible). IF, Ogre Bounce would have had more levels, where the difficulty would actually rise from level to level, it could be a decent arcade game. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like that will happen though.
