You Have to Burn the Rope

Post by Caprizant on 4th July 2015, 9:19 pm

Welcome, everybody, to my newest let's play! Yes, it's the impeccably titled... You Have to Burn the Rope! I decided to do this Let's Play because it's Independence Day and everything, and there's fireworks everywhere, so... I wanted to at least do something semi-related. And this involves fire. :B

This is a full-featured platform-adventure game made entirely in Adobe Flash. I'm not gonna say much more than that; it's a bit like the Mousetrap, where you're not supposed to tell anyone else the plot after you've experienced it yourself. As such, if you want to get the full experience, I would suggest you play the game before reading this Let's Play.

And in relation to that, I would suggest ALL discussion of the plot be put under spoiler tags. No matter how minimal it may seem. Nay, I do not suggest that: I command it. Just trust me. :B

And don't worry, this won't interfere with Zelda Oracles' schedule! This LP will only be updated on Saturdays.

Without further ado, let's begin!

Part 1—You Have to LP the Game:


Okay! *clicks*



We're dropped into a tunnel and some really ominous music plays. Spooky...
Unfortunately, I don't think this song is available online, except in the game itself.
Also, nice hat. I bet he was named after it.



I took some cues. The ominous music; the long, largely featureless corridor; the sense of foreboding oozing from the brick walls.



Oh.



Well, that seems straightforward enough. How hard can it be?



Okey dokey!



By the way, once you drop down that ledge, there's no going back. It's too high to jump. So if you have anything, you, er... need to go back for... yeah. Too late.



When we reach the end of the corridor, we reach a giant room, and the wall seals behind us. Gasp!
Wait a second...



Ooooh. OH god. OHHHHH GOD.



IT'SGONNAEATMEIT'SGONNAEATMEIT'SGONNAEATMEIT'SGONNAEAT



IT HAS FRICKIN' LASER BEAMS WHAT THE FRICK




If you're playing along, you throw axes by pressing the spacebar.
And look! The game lied! He can be hurt by my weapons! >:V



...Except he regenerates health faster than you can hit him.
RUN AWAY!!!!!



Passing by this torch gives Kirby a flaming stick.
That's how torches work.



Over here...



Up here...



Shit, I fell.



Man, this game has such a difficulty spike with these jumping sequences.



MADE IT!



ohnoohnoohnoohno



OHSHITOHSHITOHSHITOHSHITOH



YES



COMEONCOMEONCOMEONCOMEONCOMEONCOMEON



YEEEEEES! I MADE IT!
Hey, isn't that a rope?



HYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA



Now that's what I call rope burn!



SHIT



Remember kids: Fire works!







YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Spoiler:



Man, I'm sure glad that's over...



Wonder what's next...?




what's next:




Oh.



WELL.



Nice job, dood!
(By the way, I'd suggest watching the video for the song here. It's amazing.)



They designed the addition in this game.



Umami gets an ULTRA-SPECIAL MEGA-COOL SUPER-RAD THANKS from the developers!



Yes I am!




Yes, I did!



Aww, thanks, guys.




Celebrating America! WOO! GO AMERICA!



But my data cap Chuck




Hey, there's an idea!



I kinda figured.




Hey, laziness! There's the American spirit I've been looking for! Dunsparce Approves





You know, I like your honesty. You get a cookie. An Internet cookie.
Aaand it goes through the chorus again.



Alrighty! Next update, I'll be going over some bonus content, posting some cool fan art, and exploring the areas we haven't already! See you guys then!

Cap, shooting for the record of shortest text LP in our history.

Spoiler:
I thought it'd be a fun little thing to do. Silly
That bonus episode is real, though. Expect it soon.

Also, references to the length of the game should be spoilered, just to preserve a bit of mystery. Silly

You Have to Burn the Rope (Part 2—You Have to Explore It All)

Post by Caprizant on 4th July 2015, 10:30 pm

It's still Saturday, and thus still update day :I

part 2—you have to explore it all:


Time to explore the areas we haven't been to yet!
As you can see, there are platforms up by these windows.



And they've got some pretty nice views!



I've gotta move fast here, because Kirby blinks when he takes damage, and I can't have that when I'm taking screenshots.



Hello Ms. Chandelier! Thanks for helping us earlier~! Yeah!



G'bye Ms. Chandelier! Have a nice day! KM Says Hi!



image:



Hey! I can see my house from here! :O



And we're through!
Now to the side of the room we haven't seen yet!



Torches working fine.



But as you can see...



...it's all exactly the same...



...as before.



Still, if you wanna be a WICKED PUNK REBEL, I guess you could do it this way.



And you know what?



I WANNA BE A WICKED PUNK REBEL.



TAKE THAT YE DEMON





Now to show you guys the bonus content!



Remember these instructions?
You'd think they'd just stop at number three, and all. I mean, three is the only logical number of instructions for there to be. It's obvious.

But actually, if you right click, you get a special fourth instruction...



YEAH.
REALLY.
YOU CAN'T DIE.

Anyway... now for the fan art! :D

click the images for their sources:
town under siege:

evil hero?:

hardest boss fight ever:

now you're a hero!:

cover art:

And that's it! Thought I'd give you guys a fun little present. I literally got the idea to LP this game a few hours ago, and I thought, "Sure why not?"

Believe it or not, I actually had to play the game through four or five times to get the right screenshots, cuz I didn't think it was necessary to record the gameplay for such a short game...  Why. But other than that, it was incredibly fun. Back to Oracles on Tuesday!

Archiving this now!

lp talk:
This was a fun little experiment, I'm happy with how it came out. I might do one of these short, fun LPs every once in awhile. Not too often though.

But anyway, back to Oracles!
