Wunda Flossy and Ork Attack are two quality entries in the One Switch Competition. (Actually, Ork Attack was not finished in time for the competition, but it was the author's intent to enter it). Wunda Flossy finished second, and I'm sure had Ork Attack been finished in time, it would have placed in the top five as well. |
As one-key games, both are extremely easy to learn. In Wunda Flossy, your job is to guide a cow named Flossy across the landscape, avoiding obstacles and collecting enough coins to clear each level. There are multiple difficulty levels to choose from, and the game has plenty of humor reminiscent of Llamasoft's classics like Yak Attack.
Ork Attack is not original but a superb remake of an oldie Amiga freeware game of the same name, which seems to have been inspired, in turn, by Activision's classic Kaboom!. Your goal here is to drop rocks off the rampart to kill the climbing orcs before they get to you. The game has seven stages spanning four levels, a bonus minigame between levels, two bosses, and a lot of blood. Both games are well-designed coffee-sized underdogs and perfect diversions between more serious gaming sessions. Thumbs up for both.Reviewed by: Underdogs
