N.E.U.F.O
In Brief
N.E.U.F.O is a short retro platformer.
The Game:
N.E.U.F.O is a short side scrolling platformer with retro looking graphics and is another of those cheap £0.79 games that you'll find on Steam and released by Nekyau Games. There is no main menu or options, just a New Game and Exit button. Once in game the only way to exit is via the icon in the task bar or by ''Cntl - Alt - Del''; then close via the task manager. The only review of the game, (which 'unsurprisingly' is negative) is in Russian. The reviewer scored the game 0 out of ∞ (infinity) and went on to say that even the most dexterous person would be unable to finish this game due to bugs and the broken nature of the game. Basically we have a game similar to the game given away by the same developer six days ago called Run, Run, Monsters! except N.E.U.F.O is set in space, where you jump from asteroid to asteroid collecting miniature galaxies and exit to a different galaxy via the milky way. Above the exit galaxy you will see how many mini galaxies you've collected.
Along the way you may be attacked by weird looking cloud like structures that move in a pseudo random nature. If you are touched by one of these structures they send you to the beginning of the game. If you fall (yes, we have gravity in space in this game) into the abyss, you also start from the beginning. According to the Russian reviewer, if you fail on any of the later levels you also start from the beginning. I became extremely bored of this game very quickly, but persevered for around 20 minutes of game play and still hadn't made it out of the first level due to the poor level design. I deleted the game as it gave me no positive vibes. You can see the only review via Steam HERE. As it is in Russian, you may need to change your filters to see the review, I used Google translate to read the review.
Control:
You can use the following keyboard keys to control your ship

↑ = Jump
← = Move Left
→ = Move Right
Despite my repeated dismounts from the same platform, there really is no challenge to this game and it becomes boring very quickly. You can see a couple of videos of game play via the Steam store page HERE and Falcoware HERE.
The Steam description (see link to Steam above for reference details), says:
''The action of this platformer takes place in distant space, among the stars and comets. You play as a fun alien, the task before which is not easy - to surf the expanses of space and collect for your planet small galaxies, In the open space is full of danger - meteorites, mysterious black holes and terrible cold. It will take considerable courage and dexterity to collect all the constellations and return to the ship. Gather all your strength and agility into a fist and help the stranger to get home!'' ...... and is tagged as an indie action adventure game. Seriously!!!!
The gamer installs to C:\Program Files (x86)\N.E.U.F.O by default. If you choose not to install the games desktop shortcut, you'll still get the four Falcoware shortcuts installed, but these can safely be deleted.

Another of Steams infamous asset flip/clones that we keep getting here. Not worth wasting time on. Personally I wish Steam would ban developers who do this, but that's not a matter for GAOTD.

JDP, Totally agree with yuo on this; Nekaua Games and others that are releasing games that IMO don't even qualify as being a game (when you get a bug filled game with only one level, made with a free game engine such as Construct 2 and with free assets, and most of which usually retail for £0.79. This trend started wh4en Valve started to sell cheap game engines such as the RPG Maker engines.

Valve used to say they were 'gamers for gamers'. All they seem to be bothered about now is profit. (nothing wrong with that per se), but when it comes to selling utter rubbish, then it matters. Each developer pays around £140 to get their game added to the Steam library, then for every sale Valve get a decent cut of the sales. From their behavior over the past few years since these dollar games started to be common I would say that gamers for gamers statement is no longer true. Also, Valve are taking advantage of the growing number of gamers who seem only to be interested in numbers for example I was on one of the Steam sites that quotes the top Steam community members for various reasons, for example the highest number of achievements etc. One lists the top steam community members with Steam game and another one is the number of total hours you've spent playing games via Steam. Some players actually run literally hundreds of games in the background and rack up thousands of hours of game play every week. Some players have over a million hours of game play (1million hours is approx = to 115 years of constant playing, lol). If you worked out how many years they had been playing it would be a lot more than Steam has actually existed.


p.s. i used to be one of those game counters. At one point i was number 4 in the world and number 1 in the UK. when I counted up how much I'd spent on games (over £40 000) i stopped buying at around 11600 games back in late summer 2017. Really crazy and also very embarrassing.

p.p.s. I did use games as distraction therapy for chronic pain, so felt justified at the time for spending so much, but the more I thought about it, the more I realised what a waste of money. Some community members have over 18 000 games in their Steam accounts now; but most of those have never been played, or at the most for a few minutes. Valve is like a cancer, spreading insidiously, with its constant sales.

pps 'scuze the rant

Whiterabbit-uk, rant justified. I found I spent more time shopping for game deals and trying to win free games, than I do playing them. Funny thing is, how easy it is to just stop looking at so many sites. I never spend more than a few dollars on any game, because by the time I get half-way through my backlog, that's all it will cost to buy the newest, hottest games of today.

As for today's game, developer should be embarrassed. Steam also.

I just had to try this and agree with WR. Booooooring.
Besides I could not et out of the game even pressing ESC did not work. Done it by Ctrl/Alt/Del. Removed in less time then it took to write this.
