PsychotronicTasha's GameI'm not going to write anything funny about Tasha's Game, because it's already a game about a woman rescuing her friends and co-workers from evil black tentacles with the help of her magical flying cat Snoopy. It hardly needs embellishment. I will tell you that Double Fine Games—who are responsible for crazy 3D platform adventure and cult hit Psychonauts—are somehow involved, so expect oddness.

Control Tasha with [WASD] or the [arrow] keys, and move Snoopy with the mouse. Collect floating icons with your cat cursor, and you can use them to create platforms out of thin air. If you make a mistake, you can use the [-] key (minus) to zap back in time to just before you placed the last platform—a very nice feature, if not entirely ergonomic.

True, Tasha's Game is relatively short, but I pretty much decided it deserved to be featured after a rosy-cheeked tree in the game complained that I was standing on its head. The platforming controls are simple but smooth, there's a full bevy of hats to collect (they're actually called "Pointless Unlockables", in case you're still wondering how seriously the game takes itself), and the shocking final boss encounter is, frankly, amazing.

Also, the title is randomly generated every time you play, so reload the page a couple of times for extra value. I played it while it was called "tasha's final karate zero", which, logically speaking, makes me the coolest person alive.

Anybody else having trouble getting the [shift] key to do anything? it seems like it's important for the gameplay, but on my mac it's doing nothing.

peter - the shift key is for pausing and using the useless unlockables. You don't REALLY need it to finish the game.

fun game...you were right, psychotronic, the boss was definitely awesome.
I was kind of confused about the random faces on things...at first i thought i was supposed to jump on them, only to realize that they weren't really there...
Loved the backwards-in-time button, that saved me a bunch of times...

Pretty easy, but really enjoyable. I think the concept could be pushed further, although I only found two unlockables which does hint that I missed a lot.

The final boss encounter is definitely the best part of the game. Which is great, because often the final boss is a let down after playing the actual game.

"Tasha's double misadventure of rage"

How can you top that?

And my vote is that Tasha is indeed a woman. Even though Raz says "help me, man" (or something of the sort), I've heard girls be called "dude" before, too. ;)

Heh, I was playing around again and noticed that the "Pointless Unlockables" show up on your character portrait during dialog. Nice touch.

Yeah, at the end of the game when she wakes up from bed I'm pretty sure that thing protruding past her arm is a breast and not bad art. :) Also, I assume the poster on the wall behind her is Michael Phelps. Not sure about the guy in the photo frame (maybe a boyfriend).

I played through it again to pick up more of the "Pointless Unlockables". Again they could be a bit harder to obtain (many times I figured out ways to save up platforms to build long bridges out to nowhere where there was... nothing at all), but it's still a really fun game.

My only complaint is when you die, you go back to the beginning of the level. Would be much easier to have death function as the - button. Would mean I don't have to guess place of it when I'm about to cease to be.

Simple, easy, and fun! I think the ending shows the reason behind everyone's faraway, dazed expressions. I disagree with the game in that the unlockables have a point: if they were truely pointless, then they'd just end up as checkmarks on a background or something. (Or am I confusing "pointless" with "useless"?)

Also: Tara's craft romance rage. Why do I keep getting the bum end of random number (title) generation?

I like the concept, but I found the gameplay unnecessarily fussy -- since Tasha can only jump a few pixels, it's often a pain to place the platforms correctly, especially with those elevator blocks -- and so doing it in time with the chase scene just became too annoying for me.

Especially since, after passing the chandeliers, I kept missing the jump up the stairs for no obvious reason that I could see. It looked like I was on top of the next step.

And since it sends me to the beginning of the level every time, I don't feel like finishing it.

Cute kitties, though.

Perfect casual game, over in a day of coffee breaks, put a smile on the face. Only real complaint is that it should be obvious that your progress will be saved when you exit (unless I missed something, you only find that out when you go to exit). First time, I spent twenty minutes at it for fear of losing my level before I had to stop dodging work and exit the game.

A tip for better platform placement:

Whenever you click and hold, everything in the game stops until you release the mouse button. So have Tasha jump, then near the top of the jump, place the platform right under her.

I think the computer I'm playing on is giving the game a glitch. I'm SO close to beating the final boss:

I have the E platform, which when placed says EXIT, but the first time I tried to place it, Tasha vanished, and the second time I tried to place it, IT vanished.

Am I missing something?

Octochan:

The hat after space helmet is the "Hero's Hat" (looks like Link cap). On level 4, go up into the clouds. Go to the right of the temple. Use a platform to drop down into the second gap between the clouds (where the rainbow ends)

I feel a little odd after typing that sentence with complete seriousness :) Great game.

Tasha's deluxe escapade plus.

This game was funny, especially:

the beginning of level 6, where Snoopy says, "I can sense the evil in the air," and the screen turns black

I couldn't help laughing every time another person was captured by the tentacles. Am I sadistic?

and

the villain turning out to be a cat who wants Tasha to pet him

The two last unlockables on level 9 are hard to find; not because you have to make a leap of faith to find them, but because everything is so rushed:

For the first one,when you get the trampoline platform, jump as high as you can, then hold-click and place it close underneath her at the peak of her jump; when she trampolines upwards, have the cat cursor at the top of the screen to find Vampire Tasha!

For the very last one,

when you're escaping in the long hallway with the period of not needing to jump, jump anyway and keep looking up to find it. The "Psychic" hat... Well, it's pretty obvious.

This game made my day. Even though I got like 5 unlockables. Seriously great.
But I think it's kind of funny that people are saying "the concept could be pushed further" when

the villain is a disgruntled kitty cat

and

there's a flying cat in a wizard's hat that casts magical platforms.

Honestly I don't think pushing it was the point :)
