What would happen if you crossed the stealth gameplay of a 2D Metal Gear Solid with everyday office work or trying not to get fired? Moving Player‘s Level 22: Gary’s Misadventures is that quirky little game.
Do you remember the Merry Gear Solid games featured in Christmas 2015 games special, Part II? Level 22: Gary’s Misadventures is very reminiscent of these, even if it’s not for free. The idea of an office worker who oversleeps after a drinking night and has to get to his desk before anyone realizes he’s late again is ingeniously funny, even if the humor might not be to everyone’s tastes.
Using old donuts to distract security, laxatives to keep colleagues away, manipulating photocopiers or vending machines are only a few of the creative ways how to slink by. Crawling through air ducts and of course Solid Snake’s No. 1 hiding place in the form of a cardboard box are available as means of finding one’s way through various floors undetected.
Arcade-like visuals and music add to the fun. While it might not have the greatest story or memorable characters, it sure looks like a fun attraction to while away the boring office hours or (more safely and recommended) play after a hard day’s work.
