Them's Fightin' Words
    When I saw Life as a Dilevery boy I thought I would be getting myself a great game that had something good to do with the show it's based on, Futurama. I watched the show and though I would be getting a good game, the only game I think ever to be thought of based off the show.
But after playing I realized that wasn't what I was going to be getting.
    Ok, some things in this game look pretty nice, but the rest completly sucks. The transportation tubes, for example, look 3D like they should. But then all the buildings in the town are 2D and look like something from an atari game. One good feature I noticed in this game were when you talk to a character from the show like Bender, I shows a picture of them. Nice job on that. But I think that the creator had to do that so you wouldn't have to look at the horrible NPC animation. Fry the character doesn't even take steps when he walks. Just horrible.
    There isn't a story here at all. The game is based off the show, but you just do errands for the professor until the demo ends. People who have never seen Futurama would have no idea what the heck was happening on the screen, and people who have seen the show would wonder what was going on. I know I did.  
    One word: Boring. You just take passages and retrieve packages the whole enitre game. There a few battles inbetween, but they are not fun. Not something you would want to tell anyone about, unless you are describing how bad it is.  
    There is nothing here! The characters you get only have one attack each. There are hardly any battles that must be fought to proceed into the game more.  
  Map Design
    It looks completly ransomized. Whoever built the maps for this game was not watching the show. You are sent to the most awkward spots. I remember one mission where I was sent into a corner of the map, through narrow bush like things. There was a green ball there. It was just sitting there wandering around. I had to get around it, but all it said was: Beat my evil cousin. I had to get pass the ball to get to the evil cousin. Did this game's maker even play this to see if that worked out?  
    There is too much wandering around for no reason in this game, and too little fun boss fights. Hardly, if any fun. Too much boring stuff ruins this game.  
    Since my computer's sound card can't play Sound cards I can't mark down this games creator for this. Too bad...  
    I've said it plenty in this review and I'll say it again: There's too much boring crap in this game. I was eager to see what the game was like in the first five minutes of gameplay. The map design is so horrible I just wanted to turn off the computer and take a walk.  
Final Blows
    This game is horrible the way it is. It needs changing, badly. It's for your own good to not download this game until the errors are fixed. It sounds like a good idea, but this is the outcome of fangames gone wrong.

Final Scores
Graphics: 5/10.0
From the lack of buildings that have rooftops, to just plain atari style buildings I must knock down this score.
Storyline: 1.5/10.0
Absolutely sucks! There isn't even one here to review.
Gameplay: 3/10.0
Clever idea, but that don't earn very good points with me cause the rest of the gameplay is just off the walls.
Music: 5/10.0
Can't review this, but I'm guessing it has Futurama tunes. I'll give a fair rating with a 5
Enjoyment: 2/10.0
Do you want to know what I enjoyed? I enjoyed turning this game off and playing something better.
Overall Grade: F+
Final Thoughts
    This game is a disgrace to Futurama. By downloading this game you are wasting plenty of time you can never have back. This game could be improved, but the game's creator has already realized what a mess he has made.
