Night of the Scarecrows
This is the kind of quirky-scary artwork that I so enjoy.
The game is worth downloading just to see the opening scene and the you-lose scene.
Gameplay itself is your typical arcade game / match three. Burn the matching scarecrow groups (one click, no swapping or dragging) before they get to the farmhouse. Unlike most of these match-group games, though, the scarecrows come from the TOP of the screen.
Bonuses in the early levels include:
A crow, which you get by matching groups of seven or more. When used, the crow will carry off all of the matching scarecrows in that vertical column.
- HINT: Click on the scarecrow you want to remove, but click the one LOWEST in the column to get the crow to carry the matching scarecrows off.
A billy goat, which will wander out of its pen now and then. Grab it and use it to remove one horizontal column.
- The scarecrows' faces are so funny when the billy goat is on the way! lol~
This is a typical arcade game in that once you "die", that's it, game over. Unless you like fast gameplay, this game probably isn't for you. The cut-scenes (which are SKIPPABLE) are SO awesome, though! I will be using up my demo watching the cut-scenes over and over again. Mahaha~
There are many options for gameplay, including difficulty level, music (which was so-so), sound effects (funny), animation, HINTS and full-screen.
I recommend downloading it for - if nothing else - the giggle. The scarecrows are coming for you!
