Summary

Boo! Greedy Kid is a clever idea, Terrorize old people by showing your ass or by screaming at them, Well the gamer got my attention and to use my own voice via a mic, Well now we are talking. Playing the game is easy enough and it has enough levels to satisfy anyone but adds Steam workshop just in case you need more. I liked what I played and it soon stopped being about scaring people and more about beating the system in a weird alternate reality 2D Metal Gear Solid stealth VR system. That said I did grow tired of the base game and luckily there be a few talented people out there so you can simply grab more levels and have fun. It’s a cheap game and worth a play even if you don’t stay for the whole journey.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
