Not Ruble Trouble? Rubble Trouble Moscow

This is how the Russians do it.

I do like destroying things. Buildings, hope, people’s lives. So I’m immediately drawn to Nitrome’s Rubble Trouble Moscow. You may remember the original Rubble Trouble in Feb last year, and apparently there was another one between then and now. This one is Russian themed, in so much as the characters are wearing hats, and the music is a bit Russian. The actual game is still blowing up buildings using a constantly changing arsenal of strange weapons. Now including tanks, dancing bears and gymnasts. And it’s still good fun, apart from a frustratingly drifty camera, and a game in a box which doesn’t capture your cursor. Which is annoying. But fortunately the rest of the game isn’t, and is infuriatingly morish. Even though I’m currently stuck on a level and getting increasingly frustrated.

    Level 17 is officially a pickle.

    It’s a fun little game and the Russian theme music makes it more interesting than the original. But I had to comment because I was presented with a bear sliding down some snow with an overexcited child talking about it. It was not Horace (as the child would have disappeared and the bear was not endless), but still funny.

    Nitrome is just wonderful. Did you see their “Nitrome Must Die” or whatever game? The game play wasn’t great but a funny little self aware title.

    Plus the games where you play as a fighter fat cat, a killer giant worm, and a steampunk traintank are some of the most fun I’ve had on the internet without babyoil.

    God Nitrome’s background keeps me away from their site.
