Some habits are hard to break. Like reaching for a light switch after it’s removed or trying to jump on the bouncy boxes Crash Bandicoot Games. That is exactly what the new cell phone is crash Game wants me to do. I hate it. I hate it sooooo much.
Our own Mike Fahey covered the release of Mobile Runner Crash Bandicoot: On the Run, the newest crash Game. It’s perfectly fine! It looks great and makes all the noise and noise you would expect from a good one Crash Bandicoot game
But what really annoys me, what makes my blood boil and my eyes twitch, is the fact that this game expects this from me Interruption Bouncy boxes. It goes against every fiber of my being and feels wrong. So so wrong.
Officially known as jump cratesThese boxes contain the coveted Wumpa fruits. Many of them, in fact. You can break them by twisting yourself in them like a boring normal box. But that’s the wrong way of doing things. The ideal way to deal with them is to jump and hop on them a few times and collect more precious wumpas than if you had just hit them like a monster. And for (check the release date of the original game …) over 20 years
Then Crash Bandicoot: On the run shows up and insists that I just break it … like any other box. Folks, I’m trying to do this. I really do. But I want to keep jumping on these things because that’s the right method. Hurling these jump crates feels like petting a dog from back to front in the wrong direction. It ain’t right you know And because you can jump in this game, I keep trying to jump on them. But nothing.
Every time these jump boxes are destroyed, part of me dies a little. I can see a younger Zack looking over my shoulder and watching me play. And every time I break one of them he says, “What are you doing ?!” I dont know. I feel terrible.
Likewise, get ready for 2020 young Zack. Seriously.
