Recess at Last

Gerald Aungst (2008)

Recess At Last is short game in which you play a fourth grader who can't go outside due to not turning in your homework. The goals are clear, and the implementation is solid, but the game play is too easy. There's not much here, just a few puzzles that have no real challenge. Also, it didn't feel like fourth grade; everything was sterile. None of the kids were picking on me, no classmates were throwing spit wads, and there weren't any children playing around behind the teacher's back. It wasn't humorous, and the ending left me flat. Maybe if the game made some sort of point it would have worked better for me, but that's kind of hard to do in a fourth-grade setting. This one probably isn't worth your time.
