tokyo day 4 001

The Half-Life 2 arcade game. I played through the Ravenholme level. It is weird in that there is a chair and the controls are kind of like a bulldozer or something (and that it is yellow and orange and black also gives it a feeling of heavy machinery). There is a control on each arm rest. One for basically the equivelent of the WASD keys and on the right is a joystick that you can twist to turn left or right, pull forward or back to look down or up and with a trigger to fire.

 

The game itself is broken into levels and in the attempt to make it more like House of the Dead or one of those rail shooters they put labels and arrows on the bad guys. As far as I could tell there isn't a gravity gun and so all the puzzles that require it are either gone or shown in cut scenes. There are a lot of cut scenes. Each "level" is broken into 3 areas which are the highlights of the level. In between is the physics stuff or the switching from a vehicle to on foot. Alex and the other NPCs don't seem to exist.
