Clipsqueak: Not So Massive Action Game

You know what's a nicer name than grappling hook? Gapple hok. Think about it.

Free indie action game Not So Massive Action Game is altogether too hard for a Wednesday morning, and I am sorry, but we could never shun it for that reason. The thought of it! Our reputation… In NSMAG players are tasked with completing various challenges, like surviving an assault for two minutes, or planting a bomb, or protecting a girl, all from a zoomed out perspective that makes you feel like you’re stood in the eye of some kind of war-storm. Features include two player co-op on the same keyboard and using your grappling hook to pull the pilots out of helicopters. Footage of this madcap action after the jump.

Thanks to the blog for the tipoff. Thanks, I mean it! Because how I really like to spend my Wednesday mornings is howling in venemous anger at tiny sprites.

    Hmmmm… Contra with undecipherably tiny sprites and annoying 4chan humour.

    I’ll pass, thank you.

    Looks like showing enemy health as a single digit number give games a “puzzle-ish” feel.

    I think that ‘hook’ is the better word. In fact I think it should have more ‘o’s the larger the hook is.

      Oh you could not be more right. In fact most words in English should have at least three sizes, depending on the quantity of vowels. Like, gun, guun, GUUUN.

    • Kommissar Nicko says:

      In Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan, the size and scope of a conflict (a war, in Modern English) was displayed in the text through the use of three sizes of the word:
      “war” for normal sized conflicts,
      “warr” for 2x sized conflicts, and for when that didn’t do,
      “warre” for those larger-than-life conflicts.

      True fact!

      This is not a true fact.

      “Battle Angel Alita” is a great anime.

      I might be oldschool (26 now), but I prefer an even easier, but clear, language.

      In the case of hooks: hook, plushook, doubleplushook.
      in the case of guns: gun, plusgun, doubleplusgun.
      in the case of war: war, pluswar, doublepluswar.

      You should be able to do it yourself now.

    • AndrewC says:

      Hook, Doublehook, Megahook, Hookspree.

    Robert, that’s called Newspeak, and it’s from 1984 by George Orwell. Though you probably already knew that, and I just sound like a jack-ass.
