Go Doeo!

By Kieron Gillen on April 22nd, 2008 at 9:23 am.

Destroy them. Show no mercy. Your country depends on you.

Inching into the day after accidentally not remembering to sleep, Simon Parkin points me at Doeo - a piece of flash-distraction-science which has helped me gently reintroduce myself to life. It’s basically whack-a-mole with Katamari Damacy’s aesthetics – the titular Doeos appear and you have to move your mouse over them. It’s as simple as mechanic as you’ll find, but it goes about its task of making Doeos appear from unexpected places with as much imagination as you could wish (And with hypercute anarchistic tendencies). Doeos destroy cities! Doeos decapitate people! Giant sinister Doeos staring, ever staring at us! Who will save us from the Doeos?

(Answer: You)

    Thanks for adding my game! But could you possibly link to http://www.kongregate.com/games/raitendo/doeo or possibly
    http://www.shockwave.com/contentPlay/shockwave.jsp?id=doeo&brand=GameShare
    instead? that way I get a share of the ad revenue the game generates :)

    Awesome game!

    OK people time to put up your scores.

    I got 32180 on this go but I swear [scouts honor] I hit 40k odd on my second go!

    I seem to be getting worse.

    I love the style, even as it bites hard on the katamari junk,.
    It is sotra fun, but i suppose I played more just to listen to the good music and see all the wunderfull art,. nice work!

    Why is there no, even a tinny, sound when a doeo gets got ? would provide user feedback and make the game feel more like you are playing it ,.

  9. PleasingFungus says:

    That was fun. Hard is pretty hard.

  10. Matthew Gallant says:

    That was good fun, the art style warmed the cockles of my heart.

    Cute ‘n furry, although simultaneously quite horrific. Muchos funos.

    Note the point where they decapitate that guy, then become his face. Sideburns et al.

    56200!
    Take that milfs.

    There’s also the Moai series of games. More crazy, slightly less pretty:

    http://tower.of.moai.fizzlebot.com/
    http://www.shockwave.co.jp/games/arcade/actiongame/moainosu/play.html

    I think I probably prefer this one (Go Doeo!), mostly for the art style.

  14. Down Rodeo says:

    Oh God! There are so many of them! :o

  15. Chris says:

    I think I prefer the original SKT version(http://www.skt-products.com/flash.html), but this is fun too.

    Gaah. Nothing on shockwave.com plays on my computer. Just sits at “clicking on this ad will not affect download and a black box. That’s in both Firefox and IE.
