least best room

I do declare that Tim W. has been chosen as the Prophet for the Great Wazoo, Kenta Cho. All hail Tim! All hail Kenta Cho!

But yeah, Timmy found a very early version of a very unconventional Flash shoot em’ up, called Least Best Room. (I wonder what the name means. I imagine it has something to do with math? Or is it just the lack of space?) I really like the basic mechanics of the game, which have you squeezing past red “balloons” and dodging mines. You can press “z” to inflate the balloons and burst them. All the while you must replenish your green energy bar up top.

The squeezing concept and the ticking timer do a good job of inducing panic. It hasn’t felt this good to make my way through a crowd since Dead Rising… I’m looking forward to v1.0!

    Music’s a bit repetitive, but otherwise that’s mighty good.

    thanks. You have no clue how long it took me to summarize this game. I got the crumbled up pieces of paper gathered around my trash bin with the basketball hoop attachment to prove it.

    it’s The *Grand* Wazoo, Derek dearest.

  • Derek

    Hey Ugh, I like the “crumbled up pieces of paper gathered around the trash bin” metaphor. It’s probably a good way of describing your life, too, you boring, cowardly piece of shit.

    This comment section is so much more entertaining than the TIGsource articles themselves. It’s like visiting a daycare.

  • Derek

    I wish it were like a daycare. ‘Cause then I’d get some free juice. AND I DON’T SEE NO FREE JUICE IN FRONT OF ME. >:(

    I have no idea what yar talking about.. must be some american thing..

    This section get interesting only when one person comes to comment.. :)

    No seriously i have no comment on the game but i have to admit Kenta Cho is a great coder.

    FireSword, and others – it would make my life a lot easier if you guys didn’t reply to or comment on posts from Named Trolls. I have no problem deleting their posts, but it makes me uncomfortable to delete yours. In the future, I will, but it would make it easier if I didn’t have to.

    Also, your acknowledgment of them just gets them off, so yeah! Please. I know it’s fun, but… last week was like the Battle of Helms Deep or something.

    (*EDIT:* Btw, I’m speaking as much to myself as to anyone else.)

    OK. i don ‘t understand but i will respect your wish, i will never post comment anymore on your site.


  • Derek


    No, I didn’t mean that, FireSword! Just don’t reply to comments that have no purpose other than to snipe at the games or the people on this site.

  • Rz.

    Derek, am I a named troll? just curious ;___;

  • Derek

    No, man! I think it’s really obvious who they are. :)
