You stand over the guard's body, grabbing frantically for a banana. You're not sure if the other guards heard his muffled scream. Just a few weeks ago you were on a reconnaissance mission of extreme importance. You were to infiltrate the fortress and find the plans for Operation Bad-Boon. Captain William J. "B.J." Blazkowicz, you've got a big plastic ball and eight floors of hell to get through. Good luck! RETURN TO CASTLE MONKEY BALL YouTube demo (CW: Nazi imagery, portrait of Awful Person)

A content waning isn't useful if you don't actually say who the person or persons you're warning for.

Yeah, I think I did that badly. There is very little actual Nazi content in this, it was more in recognition of the graphics' source in Castle Wolfenstein. And even then, on closer inspection they don't use the swastika texture from the original game, and Hitler's face has been changed out. I think the warning basically caused people to ignore the post, maybe thinking it was going to be edgelord material, when it's really just a light and fun homage to two very different kinds of game.

I hate this. I am impressed, but I hate this. And I love this. id software kinda made my supermario bros, and now I'm playing a shitty mario party game that makes me feel nauseous. I love this.

Honestly I think it'd play better with analog controls. Maybe in the next version?
