Why is Buzz Bombers an Affront on Nature?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Even back in 82/83 - we knew pollinators were important. Why a game based on preventing them from pollinating? The hell?

 

EDIT: I got this in the mail yesterday and played for the first time. It's a head-scratching concept.

Not to mention poisoning hummingbirds for the crime of simply getting in the way.  Maybe that's why the idea of a Raid cross-promotion got a "cool reception."

Also what's up with killing rare species like winged dragons in AD&D?

Or what about disturbing pristine islands in Utopia?

Or depleting the ocean in Shark!Shark! ?

What about all the CO2 polution from cars in Bump'n'Jump?

 

CANCEL!

I'm not saying this game and/or those games aren't fun as hell. 

 

But what i AM saying is that maybe the PC way to play Buzz Bombers today is to lose on purpose as quickly as possible.

Also, cmadruga, your point is moot. Buzz Bombers is a game in which success is tied to eradicating bees and failure is defined as pollination manifested as new flowers on the playfield.

And Armor Battle then?

 

To not talk about Dracula, killing as much innocent people as possible...

 

And Las Vegas games??? Gambling is addictive!!!

And no one really no one cares for droids, aliens, monsters, animals, and whatsoever.

It was a problem in my family back in the early '80s, "why do you always have to play war?" (war in a wider sense)

Why should one see it like this, yes you spray those poor bees to dead, but it's a game does a child ever care to kill in a game?

Nope!

It's us parents who start to think different about that and aren't able to differ between fantasy and reality and not the kids.

 

Tom Morton who started Pioneer Space Sim mailed me once: "do you have always to play war and does your ships really all need this phallic extensions?"

Erm , YES! "Tom even Chess is a game of war but who is arguing about killing in this game?"

"Poor peasants" yes goddammit poor peasants!

 

I like Buzz Bombers and play it from time to time, it's a challenging shooter game.

 

"Vampire Hummingbirds" ohkeh now i understand why to some Zebras are painted Horses, Orang-Utans actors in fur dresses and Hummingbirds are robots.

Lathe26 when it comes to find the weirdest stuff in web you lead for sure.

 

And now i will get me some buzzing in my head...

Yes perhaps bugs would have been the better choice, "splat bugs just like in Starship Troopers!" - poor bugs!

talking about PC and a quite innocent shooter on Intellivision?

Well, we have much to learn from our friends/rivals, the Atarians...
