Them's Fightin' Words
    Bob Surlaw (or Walrus Bob backwards) is on the... quest for color. Once he finds it, trouble brews for the Flying Team consisting of Bob, Salom, Glob, and a few other characters. Whether this game is meant to be both intended for humor and for headaches, I won't know for sure, but you'll probably find yourself having a few chuckles while gripping your head from a growing migraine.
Graphics
    The graphics are intentionally bad. If you've played Walthros: Return of the Crystals, you can get a good idea. The graphics are incredibly blocky, and anything done out of the OHR are usually backdrops, involving either animals or anime women with large breasts. The seemingly random backdrops and square like heroes and enemies clash, and don't expect your eyes to be very pleased (unless you like 256 colored hentai like Salom).

In fact, at times you'll find your eyes hurting; like in Raspberry Heaven where colors flash and hurt your eyes and make you want to get out of there as soon as possible. This supports the idea this game must be meant to not only humor, but also torture your senses.

The graphics fit the game for what it is - but that doesn't mean the graphics are good. If you've played any of PHC's other non-serious games you should know what to expect.
 
Storyline
    The storyline has already been explained above. It does not make much sense, and that is also intentional, as you are automatically told GO SOUTHEAST AND FIND TREASURE!!!1 as well as being automatically teleported all over the place. The story has a random enemy popping up for each new chapter (there are five in all, you won't be able to wait for it to be over) after you obtain color in the world, and you go through the linear maps as seemingly random things occur and attack you.

This game has intention to be funny, and in the first chapter, you will find yourself entertained a couple of times. However as it goes on, the funnies start to decline, as you start to wish it'll all be over. There are a few funny bits to it, like Salom being a temperamental gangsta to a bug eyed head of Donatello.

Don't expect the game to make sense, just expect it for what it is. It's meant to humor and annoy and not make sense, and perhaps even make fun of other newbie OHR games that don't really make sense themselves.
 
Gameplay
    Gameplay is extremely linear. You follow the paths that are set for you and you are "discretely" instructed to go through, and just go with the flow of the game. That is all there is to it. Follow through each chapter until you reach the final one, and then it'll all be over.  
  Battle
    The battles are spacebar mashers - you hold down the spacebar and defeat the enemies in one or two blows.. or just run, as there is no purpose to any of them, aside from one or two which you must go through. You'll fight a few sprites such as Excitebike and Godzilla, but that is uninteresting and merely cameos, perhaps one of the only things you'll get out of these linear fights. You can also get a glimpse at Walthros R and a few other surprises.

Other than that, just run if you can, don't waste your time. It isn't meant to be enjoyed.
 
  Map Design
    These maps are all one way and extremely simple. Most of them are jagged paths you follow through until you're teleported to the next map, which is the same thing. Purposely crappy, the designs are not well done. Just don't think about it.  
  Balance
    You'll get through this game without dying, it's all severely tipped in your favor which is something to be thankful for, for one wouldn't want to have to have uphill battles to progress through.  
Music
    The music is absolutely horrible. You will want to turn your speakers down, because eventually all the short pieces will start to hurt your ears and make them bleed. It was kind of funny at the beginning, but after a few minutes, you'll get the idea and turn it down.  
Enjoyment
    I found the beginning funny, but by the end I was glad for it to be over.  
Final Blows
    I don't feel I understand this game's purpose (or purposelessness) fully, or maybe I have. Either way, download this game if you have nothing better to do or look at all the random backdrops, or maybe if you liked games like Afrenhouse. It's a game made crappy on purpose, with a few bits of humor here and there.

Final Scores
Graphics: 2/10.0
Some of the backdrops are okay, and it was nice to see a screen shot of Walthros R, but it's mostly crap. Expect pain at Raspberry Heaven.
Storyline: 4/10.0
Sometimes it was funny, but most of the time it was not. It will depend on your sense of humor and whether you get it all or not.
Gameplay: 1.5/10.0
It's all linear. It's like playing a horrible newbie OHR game... made horrible on purpose.
Music: 1/10.0
Please kill me.
Enjoyment: 3/10.0
A little bit of humor and a few screenies... that was about it for me.
Overall Grade: C
