Is it too late for "Flash Friday"? How about Psycho Bondage Bunnies, and the sequel? (NSFW, obviously)

The clip after you lose makes it more than worth it.

I feel I have seen this here before. That is my vague perception.

Never mind. It was only a comment link.

Yes, but not for "Shockwave Sunday", and this would appear to be shockwave content, not flash. I'll have to wait until I'm on a windows or OS X machine to look at it, there's no plug-in for this platform.

Is it too AskMiFi: to ask about the differences between Shockwave and Flash?

And B_B, I think it's supposed to be awful.
The music for #2 is inspired.
And say what you want about the gimic, but the game design is mighty good.

Jenovus: my apologies.

Richard: If you want an awful/good game design gimmick, try this one.

Wow. If only they used their power for good.

What's with commenting as Steven C. on your own post?

Ugh, the game design is awful. The controls are unresponsive and gameplay is uninspired.

Sock puppet, or double aliases.

No need to apologize.

Er, have you tried the second game?

1) Controls
Er, unresponsive Controls? The only issue I had was learning the jump system:

You have to be in motion in a direction to jump in that direction, else you'll just go up and down. That, and you need to re-tap the direction keys after you get hit, you can't just hold them down.

2) Gameplay
Uninspired gameplay? Maybe. But it's obviously not supposed to be Darwinia. On the other hand, it does some things better than the competition I'd compare it to.

specifically, in PBB, most punches have both a minimum and a maximum range, whereas in D'nM you can just get directly on top of your victim and bash your heart out.

In PBB, if you're too close to your target, you can't hit them with most of your punches. This makes an in-close punch (like the normal uppercut) more useful than its slow speed and short range would otherwise.

Moreover, the game's emphasis on jumping as the means of dodging and movement fits well with the bunny theme. You can walk, but why would you want to?

Admittedly, the shower level is lame (if you get that far), and the game as a whole suffers from a lack of better minibosses, but awful and uninspired? What are you objecting to exactly?

p.s.

Especially considering it looks like it was completed in 2001.

The first game is boring and not at all fun. I agree that the controls are awkward, the sound is repetitive and annoying, and there is an overall lack of interest and variety.

The controls are bad because when I played I found that it wouldn't always respond and most of the time it won't respond on time, which is really bad since this is a game that requires precise timing to hit enemies.

The game design is bad because it is boring and simple. 3 enemy types jump over the obstacles and move to the right. Compare that to N

Also, the art is kind of neat, but the Japanese are better at horrifyingly cute. Leave that to them.

Oh and that game you linked to (dad and me) is better than the bunny games.

I don't know what disturbs me more: the juxtaposition of hardcore BDSM and...bunnies?...Bunnies???... or the fact that it's urbane, conservative Mr. den Beste presenting it to us. I'll never view USS Clueless' author quite the same way again.
