HyperBound (Earthbound Hack) Review by: bazboydJourney to the Center of the consciousness
Yay! Another Earthbound hack review! You will not believe what trouble I went through to write this review. First, I couldn't think of anything to say, and then I pressed the backspace key, and the page went back, losing all 250 words I had written. I was mad, but not mad enough to not make a review for this. But enough about my screw ups, lets get to it. Hyperbound, an Earthbound Hack where you try to find out who you are.
The graphics aren't changed all that much, but the map layouts are drastically changed. Intricately designed, they change the game a lot. There are also the garbage blocks, which happen when you pick the wrong way in your brain. Yeah, it's just as weird as it sounds.
No reason to address it, due to the fact that it is unchanged.
This game has quite a lot of playtime, despite not being a full game hack. The Game world is huge, with plenty of Npcs to talk to.
The story is an interesting one, with plenty of characters, each unique in its own way. In Hyper bound, you play as an unnamed protagonist with amnesia. As you talk to people around you, you find out that you were found washed up at the shore of a beach. The doctor says that there is a specific procedure that can allow you to regain your lost memories. That's where the "going through your brain" mechanic. As you walk through your brain, you will find people you have met that seem to be significant to your lost memory. When you talk to them in the "brain world", they will give you hints on which way you go to unlock your memories. If you go the wrong way, you will be sent back to the doctor. Do this enough times, and parts of the world will be r
eplaced with garbage blocks, and the dialogue will be screwed up. Oh yeah, the battles are taken out too.
There is a lot to do in this game, unless you power through your brain. Wow, never thought I would say that. There really isn't a lot to say about the depth, other than the story gives a lot to find in this game.
The game isn't really meant to be played as a game, more or less like a story, making it a rather easy game.
If you ever have time to play this, do it. It is definitely worth your time.
