Description

I’m going to start this review by pointing out how fitting the title is for What the Heck, Dude? because within the first five to ten minutes of playing that’s exactly what I was thinking. It’s an odd game to say the least. With no real explanation to why you should be playing it. The AI is shoddy, the controls are off and you could spend hours doing not really anything of note.

I’m going to start this review by pointing out how fitting the title is for What the Heck, Dude? because within the first five to ten minutes of playing that’s exactly what I was thinking. It’s an odd game to say the least. With no real explanation to why you should be playing it. The AI is shoddy, the controls are off and you could spend hours doing not really anything of note.
Let’s explain.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The premise of What the Heck, Dude? is that you’re tasked with killing everyone in each level. Why, I have no idea. But from what the description on Steam’s store front said you’re drunk and so everyone has to die, as you can tell in terms of story it’s certainly up there with some of the greats. All sarcasm aside, there isn’t really all that much to What the Heck, Dude? You punch people with left click, which causes all the zombie like people of the level to waddle toward you, groaning and farting as they go. You have to then spend a fair amount of time trying to kill them and not get yourself killed in the process. It might sound quite straightforward, but sadly the hit-boxes seem off. Sometimes you might be standing directly in front of the enemy and somehow miss them, usually resulting in a quick death. The best strategy, and use that word very loosely here, is to hit and run. Basically punch one enemy and then let the rest of the horde form an orderly queue behind you. It’s like a really rubbish conga with no music, no dancing and lots of death.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So far I feel like I’ve slagged off the game, with good reason. But I’d like to point out that What the Heck, Dude? does have something going for it, the graphics. The colours and textures are very simple, but it’s a welcome thing. The geometric shapes used for the various objects and player models are pleasing to the eye, along with the bright colours. If graphics were what made a game then What the Heck, Dude? would certainly have gained some positive feedback.
Also there’s a bit of variety to each level. From prisons to graveyards to office restrooms, they all contain different assets and area sizes, making it a little more difficult to create the desired conga affect.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sadly though the sounds and gameplay, if that’s even what you can call it, really knock What the Heck, Dude? down.
There may have been some big idea behind this game, but clearly the transfer between paper and actual application differed a fair bit. What the Heck, Dude? literally feels pointless. I, alongside many other people, might’ve overlooked the point to the game, but it’s unlikely. A lot of time and effort might’ve been put into making this game and I credit the developer for that. But I doubt there was any actual testing involved.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall I’d have to say there’s very little I can say to big up this game. The graphics are quite nice, but that’s not exactly a selling point. Unsurprisingly I found it drunkenly clawing it’s way out of the depths of the Steam store. What the Heck, Dude? is glaringly a very pointless game. There’s no real reason to even play it. The controls are awkward, the sounds are weird, and the story, well let’s not even go there. Good Day!
