What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? 2. Yeah, that’s really the name of this game. I was so excited to get it. It looked like a lot of fun. The premise is simple enough – you build a dungeon by digging out the earth and creating monsters to help the villain avoid the heroes. Sounds easy enough, right?
Wrong. Totally, completely wrong. This is the hardest game I’ve ever tried to learn. I started by going through their numerous tutorials, but I could barely pass those. This game requires you to start, develop and maintain a very delicate ecosystem below the ground. Your basic monsters are eaten by the next tier, and so on. But you can’t run out of nourishment for them or you won’t have any future growth. No matter how much I tried, I just could not get it and pass more than the first few levels. I tried A LOT.
This game came with the original on the UMD (disk), so I tried that as well. Failed there, too. Only on this one, I can’t get passed the first level. I have looked up tutorials online, but the consensus seems to be that this game is just stupid hard. Here’s the thing, though – it’s still a really fun game! There’s some sort of satisfaction digging in a large area and trying to thwart the hero. The game uses humor very well, too. I would definitely recommend that you try it for yourself. Maybe you’ll think in a different way and be wildly successful.
