Them's Fightin' Words
    I've been told this game was hilarious. And true to the word, it was. In some parts it didn't make sense at all. From a piece of toast having sex with a cat, to fighting a gaint ummm.... butt. This game is crazy and is constantly screwing with your head. Trying to decipher the text to make sense of it and find out just what the heck is going on was perphaps the most difficult task. But once you did, you couldn't help but laugh.
    Now this is one of the most screwiest things I have ever seen. Sometimes the graphics can look so horrible it looks like they were simply thrown together and have no detail to them whatsoever. And other times, they look so awesome it makes your jaw drop in awe. But basically, what I got out of it at least was that Arfenhouse people look and act entirely different from "Normal" people and that's the reason for their graphical difference. Anyways, the graphics look good at times, and bad as poo in others. The animations for things were so awesome too. Like the spaceship place with all the glittery and flashy stuff, now that was so awesome. It looked so cool!!! And the NPC animations were astounding. Like the commander, he always shot out some sweat from stress because of Dog. Crazy!
Billy is trying to take over Arfenhouse, and the keeper of this wacky house is defending his house with the most oddly taken characters I've ever seen, and I've made Mr.Triangle (enough said hehehe). But, as a fellow funny character designer, I took respect for their peronalities. Evil Kitty was awesome. A cat with no friends until a piece of toast falls in love with him and they have sexual relations. That was perphaps the funniest part in my opinion. That was sick in a way. I mean, think about it, a piece of toast and a cat?! What the heck was going on when this kid thought of this stuff? Anyways, you go to Billy's Caslte and face Billy and what appears to be his family until you get to the final Billy. Then you fight to save Arfenhouse!
    The gameplay was needless to say funny. Yet there were some downsides to all of this laughter. And in the following sections I will describe my thoughts of what I thought was good, and what I thought was bad...
    Battling was horrible... The hero graphics and backdrops were aweful. The creator must have used a digital camera to take pictures of his family and stuff, and those were pretty much the backdrops. But aside from that, the worst thing was that when you got a hero, they had all of their final abilities they would ever need/get. Evil Kitty/Good Kitty was the cheapest character of them all... His Bat attack did more than anything in the game. Very cheap... And on top of that, battles were very drug out... But all the same, the animations look pretty funny. Like the waddling cat head. Hehehehehe. Oh yes, and thank goodness for the F4 button! That thing saved a lotta time from some dopey battles.
  Map Design
    Maps were either good or bad. And if you've played this before you understand where I'm coming from. Like the spaceship I told you before, it looked so great, I didn't think it could get better than that. But it did (in the end). Other times, the maps looked aweful, but they were very well designed. Like the area where you find the Arfenhouse sword. That was incredibly well designed. Awesome.
    I look for balance. And this wasn't balanced really. First of all, there are no shops that I am aware of. And like two items in the whole game. Which that's aweful. And on top of all that, Evil/Good Kitty is as said, the cheapest character of them all. He can cure/revive everyone with 0 MP. And he has a whole buncha HP. Making him incredible. *Don't let the cat die!* Well, the battles were sometimes balanced, other times redicouslly hard. Didn't like that too much.
    Lots of music. Most all of it that I am aware of was ripped. And despite the game's weird nature, it suited it quite well. The title screen music was nice. It had a humorus tune to it as well. Every fight pretty much had a different tune to it as well. A nice touch if you ask me.
    I enjoyed it mostly because after the cat having sex with the toast part, I thought it would get funnier and funnier. To a degree, it did and it didn't. But all the same, I see how this game got to be so popular.
Final Blows
    This game is weird, sick, stupid, and alltogether awesome! I loved it. I just wish you could've understood the Arfenhouse people talk... That's my biggest beef with it. Yet, it's amazing. Everyone should give it a try. Even if it's only to see the cat and toast sex scene! hahahahahahahaha!

Final Scores
Graphics: 8/10.0
Good sometimes, bad others. But somehow, it all worked out to look great. What really got me, was that Pikachu didn't look too much like Pikachu. I mean, where's the lightning bolt tail???!!!
Storyline: 10/10.0
Crazy, and gets crazier as the game goes on. I loved that. The game took a complete turn in my opinion when HouseMaster fell in love with Evil Kitty. That was sick! But hilarious!
Gameplay: 8.5/10.0
Not entirely balanced. But for everything else, it rocked! I loved it. There wasn't that much gameplay to play though. But a lotta stuff happened in what little time it was.
Music: 6.5/10.0
Ripped, but fit the environment quite nicely!
Enjoyment: 8.5/10.0
Not the best game I've played, from a length standpoint. But it was true to it's rumor, it is the funniest game (next to Mr.Triangle) on CP. And unless Misteroo makes another, it might be the best one.
Overall Grade: B+
Final Thoughts
    Kids are getting drugs earlier and earlier in the generations, and this game is a prime example of that.
