Well folks, I can’t even install this pile of crap. It asks a registration code which should be displayed at the flipside of the box (it isn’t), so it will not let install itself. Therefore I can’t tell anything about this game.
I’ve tried everything, but this won’t install at all. And no, there is absolutely no mentioning of Gavin, or this website (on the cover that is).
If someone still needs this game, I can send it to him, maybe he could crack it up, or something, but with my knowledge, I can’t install the game. There is no registration code on the backside, so the dear authors svindled me out of mah money above stealing Gavin’s work…
Well, the problem is with me then…if there is a really distant target, I simply cannot hit it with lasers. It’s take 20-25 attempts to find that angle and elevation, where the laser hits EXACTLY the target. By that time, you get funkinated 3000 times…
It depends on the current method you’re using a crapshoot on yourself.
– If you just bury yourself, sitting under the hill, and laughing at others, well, that’s so lame. Dirtin’ yourself, and waitin’ for the turn limit to expire is a dumb thing to do. Don’t be surprised when everybody shall target you once you ran out of crapshooters.
– If you tend to use the dirt as a shield, that is not lame and judgeable. It is a tactic. Especially when you’re sitting in a crater, and rollers are approaching. It’s fine enough to use a clod, or a small dirt when you’re in a plain, and you’re aware of rollers and such (in a pit, a Dirt clod cannot do anything but waste your money and shot).
This is why dirt weapons exist. Since you cannot kill anybody with them, their duty is to bury someone – including you! If this is the only way to survive a Funky bomb, well then, you should not say it’s bad.
Of course, the laser attacks might be annoying, but lasers are weak (even Heavy lasers), and very inaccurate, especially for long distances.
I also love to use this tactic, especially when everyone around me is going crazy, and shooting each other with Funky bombs, and Death Head missiles, which a shield could not deflect, not even the strongest one. And it’s really not guaranteed that you’ll survive that way…but definitively better than sitting in the open, admiring the beautifully animated water, and waiting for a Funky to stop by.
Dirting yourself can be also your doom, if you cannot unbury y’self to continue the battle. Riot charges are crappy, Riot blasts are better, but the riot bombs are the best for this.
All in all: if you use it with meaning, and skillfully, it’s not lame, and definitively a nice tactic.
