Bad Game Friday –Kill H1N1

Remember a virus that caused such turmoil in 2009 and ended up being almost nothing…
Somebody got the "brilliant" idea a making a game out of it.
Sometime these "brilliant" ideas should stay where they are, in a cave filled with man eating lizard.

Enter Kill H1n1

The only thing you will kill with this is your will to live.

The game start with a scene with Michael and is girlfriend Marianne.
Marianne tell Mike to call her later to hangout.
Micheal call her later, her dad answer the phone and tell him she is really sick.
She has the H1N1 !!!!
Micheal go the is lab discover how to make an anti-virus vs the H1N1 (he’s a really smart kid)
Now He got the go around the neighborhood and cure everyone before going to Marianne to give her the antidote.

No you pervert, Micheal not staring at her boobs, he's just playing the doctor with her...

The controls are atrociously bad, you walk with the key pad and use the spacebar to give the remedy to them. That not that hard at this point (except for jumping) but when you give the anti-virus to someone, you go in another mode, where you got to move the drop of you miracle blue solution (that how they call it) to unhealthy cell to cure them.

If you think that giant blob is ugly wait until you try the control of playing in that blob...

The control in that mode is a nightmare and to had to that fact (and that playing that mode is really boring) is that if your touch anything else than an unhealthy cell you’re done…

I didn’t get to the point where I actually succeed the stage I actually got 750 and decided that I wasted enough of my time on this game.

So for those who tried it, how boring did you found it ?

I just noticed what the best feature of the TKO 2.6 upgrade is.

Look at the heroes screen : 


You can now upgrade directly from the left list and you see all your heroes that need to level up.

I LOVE that feature.

A little close up if you don’t see it :

level-up close

So what is your favorite “new” feature of the version 2.6

There will be an upgrade to v2.6 on most server on the 22th of march, I think S1, S47 and S48 already got that upgrade.

There many nice feature to keep the game interesting even though I was king of losing interest since nothing was happening on my server.
If you want a detail review you can check this post on the Koram forum.

There a lot of nice thing there my favs are probably going to be the hermit house, the super field and the capital outpost.

The Hermit house:

Finally a way to get epic without paying,  you can recruit them in the hermit house and you have to do quest before recruiting them.
Note : You could get epic heroes by fighting epic guardian too but I think you already knew that…

Super field
There will be new field spawned around the map, 18f (like the item we talked about here) 17f and 16f. They are heavily guarded (min of 50k of troop there).
The number is really limited, and I think that suck because you will have a whole server fighting for them and I think that stink for the gold player who paid a boat load of money from the previous event to get a 18 farm fields city.

Capital outpost

(more in this post : TKO update Preview III:Capital Outpost )
This upgrade was almost necessary since the number of city is capped and not everyone was able to get those capital city.  There a forum post that explains well how it work.

There other bunch of nice stuff in this upgrade: new unit, better unit management, league features,  etc …
What did you like and what do you hate about this upgrade ?
