I submitted the game 23:20 GMT, but the competition page says it's already over. Sucks a lot since the rules said 23:59 GMT! Oh, well. Onto the game.

Welcome to Mondo Agency!

You are AGENT-65386. Your superiors believe that someone is plotting to kill the president, but they have no idea who or why. And for some reason, the president seems vital to the world's very existance. It's your task to find out who it is that seeks to destroy everyone so that you can save the world from it's pending doom.

For those who played Mondo Medicals: This game is a lot easier and very different from it's younger sibling. Takes a while to beat, though, but mostly because of cutscenes. Which is also why I haven't been able to bugtest it too much. I hope it's fine.

Dang, I thought you were going to release that platform shooter for the competition D:

Oh well, onto my review:

The menu was very well done, and apart from some grammatical errors (which I'm sure were on purpose) it was very easy to navigate. The static effect at the beginning was very well done, and all the little touches like the weird gray blobs, shaky screen, and even the gradient all added to the atmosphere, and were really nice touches :P. A complain of mine would be that the mouse is centered, and if you minimize the window (like I'm doing now), you cant move the mouse away from the center of the screen. Maybe disable this when the window isn't in focus? Meanwhile, I need to find some way to press the post button :P

I liked it, but 2 things kind of got in the way.

1) Was a bit too sensitive for me - maybe add a function that can alter it.

2) The fov was very narrow, made it kind of difficult on the jumping level.

Otherwise I liked the atmosphere and the randomness of things.

As it is 2:33 on the day before christmas I was only patient enough to play to the jumping bit (frustrating!).

This game has awesome presentation! Its so mystical and intriguing. This really shows that game maker can make 3d games too. The graphics, techically, are really bad. I mean, all gray and white. No colors, not even much contrast. But still its one the coolest looking 3d games ive seen made in GM. No shader could make it better.

This is classic cactus.

ruined the game... :P

The game would have been genius, and I would have said this was the best game on the GMC, but now I am unable to, because of that STUPID GLITCH. I tried twice and the game kept glitching on level 7...

This game is absolutley amazing. Ive never seen a game quite like this game before, it has a very unique style of gameplay. The graphics almost seem to take advantage of GM's bad 3d, and it gives the whole game a very surreal feeling. Throughout the whole game I felt like I was in Tron :P . Please, continue making games like this, because this is now my favorite game on the forums and I hope I can see a sequel of it. Also, the sound was excellent.

Oh, and I played through the whole game and it seems completely bug free.

Strange...well maybe to get the game glitch free try doing a zcheck+bounding box check on the enemies in level7, if they are out of bounds then delete them.

Anyway, the game was very surreal, the storyline is very deep, original, dark, and was really a new plane of game.

Once again an excellent and exciting game from the creator of Mondo Medicals. Who'd have thought out that ending. Still, it's not my fault the president wasn't listening >.>

Graphics - 8/10 (+1) - Confusion and Scary feeling, and the graphics add to that. The natives really freaked me out, especially on the level "Massacre". The +1 is for the fact that it's 3d, which not many games have

Sound & Music - 6/10 Sounds were arcade style which was funny (shoot a native) Only downfall is that there's only the credit music and nothing else. The scream of the president really shook my ears!

Gameplay - 9/10 - Once again, my senses and mind is tested. At least it wasn't as bad as the Mondo Medicals. The level "Terminal Illness" reminded me of the flood in Halo. Good thing I had a gun with me!

Storyline - 5/10 - Although there isn't much storyline, you can kind of piece it together as you go along. Is the person who you play as in Mondo Medicals one of the natives?

Atmosphere - 9/10 - The atmosphere of confusion and fear is kept during the whole game.

OVERALL RATING - 8/10 - You've done it again :P GJ on making another addictive game. Maybe you should think about making them a little bigger. Then you could sell them? :P

Keep it up!

Yeah, don't play the Yoyogames version, it's got a bug... I can't fix it because that would be cheating. The download mirror has an updated version that is greatly improved over the other version :P

In the competition rules, where does it say that fixing a bug is "cheating"?

Good job on the game though :D

I liked this game. Are you going to do more Mondo games? The story didn't make sense, which is cool, and I liked the graphical presentation and platforming. I got stuck on that level with the lifts and the tall building that spins. I pressed the button and went back to the portal gate an there was no portal :(. What else do you do on that level?

Anyone, I love the feeling the game has... it's spooky and weird.

The engrish is very funny too, why did you make it engrish? Lol.

I can't bring myself to pass it. It's just so.... stupid, to be frank. Frustrating, a tad buggy, and bland, boring graphics. The sound was good, though, I must admit.

You've definitely made better games in the past, Cactus.

I expected a little bit more.

I liked the film noir effect, but I got bored in the first level, as there seemed to be transparent walls that I could not walk through. It felt like I was playing the GM 3d tutorial on a shoddy monitor.

The story was comical as well:

If the world dies, the president dies!

or something to that effect. I think I'd be more concerned about the world.

It would be nice if you could switch out of full screen mode, as I have a monitor with a fairly high resolution and it made reading text near impossible.

EDIT: And best game on the GMC? That's entirely subjective.

amazing! had alot of fun. the graphics werent awe inspiring, but fit well. i really liked the touch with shifty feeling of the menu and screen.

do not play this game for more than an hour or so straight, or it is guaranteed

YOU WILL GET A HEADACHE


do it anyways, its worth it

btw, instead of actually dealing with all the natives and creepy blobs that jumped out of one of the robots head, i jumped ontop of the tower with the status screen, and kept shooting. very realistic
