Review of Flash Game:SkinnySkinny is a delightful blend of the movie Coraline and thegame Limbo, rolled into a short flash game. The game starts with the maincharacter, a shadowy robot named Skinny, looking for his son’s marbles.
Afterhis son’s marbles have been returned, Skinny looks for the batteries stolenfrom mother’s children by a strange little boy named Felix. As the gamecontinues and gradually becomes more difficult, it is up to you and Skinny tofigure out who the real antagonist is and who is the hero.”Dad! Look! The dolphins are jumping out of theclouds!” One of the “children” says after you return itsbatteries. The children are an interesting and creative aspect of the game.
Some of the things they say before and after their batteries are returned is alittle twisted and a little amusing, much like the game Coma, which is createdby the same developers. The music and graphics also help make the gameenjoyable. The music is fun and quirky, just like the sayings of the children.The graphics and world are impressive. The black and green colour scheme, helpsto create the unnatural world that the player finds themselves in.
The strongstoryline adds to the creation of this world. There is not only an air ofmystery, but also something sinister about this world that mother has created.The graphics and story line are also negative features ofthe game.
This is one of the few flash games that might actually becomeunplayable on a few systems due to the massive graphical demands.Every once in a while the game’s controls freeze up. Thecontrols make the game a little more difficult than it needs to be. For howbasic and few they are, it would be simpler to use the arrow keys. The storyline turns into a negative at the end.
The game stops, with no conclusion,leaving the player wondering who the real villain is and what lies in the nextpart of the game that does not exist yet.A few tips for beating the game:Listen for the spiders. They make a unique sound. It willsave you a lot of time not having to steal your batteries back from them.Watch which crystals inactivate which lasers, and for howlong.
If you’re not careful, you can get stuck when the laser returns.Practice double jumping a lot. You will need to be good atit by the end of the game.
