That's a damn fine game for a fiver. I'm about eight tenths of the way through it and loving it.

It was OK but I must admit this happened to me:

Yeah. Mind you, if that's the boss I think it is (who frustrated my uber-hacker character), what you have to do is get him to blow himself up on the FPS-standard explodey barrels.

So long ago now I can't remember completely well... It was the first boss battle. My frustration was (like the Penny Arcade guys) born of the fact that the game had to that point let you develop a character who could sneak about, hack computers, dodge behind things and generally not be seen but you were suddenly forced into a one-on-one fight with someone who wasn't that fooled by the stealth and with no opportunity to use your other skills.

It all depends on how you'd designed your character to that point really. Some people would have a pretty easy time of it... for others (like myself) then yes, you're going to have to run like a scared girl while occasionally lobbing barrels (but he can soak up a load of them).

Apparently the sections there were outsourced and a late-game inclusion hence their "weird" feeling. The designer since apologised.
