Kill The Bad Guy Review

May 15th, 2017 by

Kill the bad guy 001No one likes bad guys, right? Well… Apart from like Darth Vader and Magneto and The Joker… ok, maybe people do like the bad guy a bit; but what if you were one of those people who liked Luke Skywalker more and stuff? Wouldn’t you like to.. y’know… kill the bad guy?

That’s the idea behind Marseille based Exkee Games ‘Kill The Bad Guy’

It’s loosely implied that you’re some kind of assassin and the only person for the job, given a Dossier on your nefarious target, usually pastiches on real life nefarious types (everyone’s least favourite cheeto gets a nod)

Gameplay is simple in Kill The Bad Guy but mildly infuriating. you’re given a finite window to fire a dead dog at your target using a tree and some rope (no really) set them on fire, launch a car at them or the good ol’ piano on the head! While all these things are great, carnage filled and funny, controlling them is fiddly, and will take a bit of getting used to.


The game itself looks a lot like simulator levels in old games, lots of white, black lines and red for highlighting. I’m a big fan of minimalist visual styles as I’ve mentioned before and I found this one quite pleasing on the eye.

There isn’t a lot in the way of sound effects, and the music is frankly a bit bemusing, some kind of weird, shouty hip-hop / metal bastardisation , it wasn’t bad… but it was very very silly…

Kill The Bad Guy is very much a game you can whack on with a little time to kill and find you’ve spent a lot more time on it than you’d initially hoped! That being said I don’t think that’s because of its challenge or its scale or scope, it is a very simple game to switch off to, and sometimes as gamers we really bloody need that.

I’d say pick this one up if you’re after a palate cleanser, it’ll do the job nicely
