I don’t know that there’s much to say about RunMan’s Monster Fracas except that it’s about running away from a big monster and it’s pretty endearing. And that the music is great.

Oh, and that sliding down slopes feels good.

And that it’s a pretty old game, so the online scoreboards aren’t working.

And “cucumber nipples.” I don’t know what that has to do with the game, but I thought I’d say it to see how it felt. Felt pretty nice.

(Thanks, moshboy! From the “”">Unpolished Gems" thread on the forums.)

    Cucumbers with nipples, or nipples that resemble cucumbers? :O

    Hey, this game is brilliant. It would kinda qualify for the B-Game contest. It surely has its own style and the jumping animations look cool. I suggest more designers take over the multiple-animation approach – this makes a game so much more fun.

    I think it could be cucumbers that resemble nipples. Or would that be nipple cucumbers?

    haha this is pretty fun! a tad on the shallow side but the basic pieces are all really great :)

    The word “Fracas” is not used nearly often enough in gaming and this title is a stern reminder to developers everywhere that they should be using it more often.

    Two thumbs up.

    I was wondering how long it would take TIGS to cover this.

    One of the most underappreciated ‘small’ games I’ve ever played. It’s impossible to play without having a giant grin on your face.

    try putting slices of cucumber on your nipples, go on.

    Truly, “fracas” is right up there with “calcavade of mediocrity” when it comes to underused language.

  • Indiepedant

    The important difference being that ‘fracas’ is a word, while ‘calcavade’ is not ;)

    You say cavalcade, he says calcavade …
