This afternoon, Jared and I sat down with SuperCock [$0.99]. It's a 2D, side-scrolling action game in which you play as a man dressed up as a rooster. Also, you kill zombies. We're not sure of the whys and wheres and hows, either. But zombies.

What caught our all-seeing eye -- outside of the title, of course -- is its slick, no-button core action mechanic. Unfortunately, its simplicity might be also be a downfall, as the game doesn't have a lot to offer outside of mindless bashing.

Of course, a lot of free-to-play functionality compliments the moment-to-moment action. When you beat a level you earn currency that you can use to level up your character and add new spells to your repertoire. You can also buy characters, but you'll probably need to spend real money on the fake money in order to do the latter -- unless you're really into what this game has to offer.

Anyway, there's a solid look. We don't recommend this game straight-up, so check that out and see if it clicks with you.

    I hope there are other mechanics thrown in for good measure... it looks like a button masher without a button :(

    With games like BattleHeart, Final Fight, X-Men Arcade and that Simpsons beat-em-up, this game is going to need something extra to seem like a viable $1.99 purchase.

    After playing with SuperCock, I just can't seem to put it down. It's definitely a solid 10!

    • agentblank

      Wow that is wrong.

      Just curious was that comment intentional or did you not realize how funny it was?

      • ExcaliburEdge

        The world may never know...

    They really need to consider changing the name. If it wasn't a bizarre non-English speaker's mistake, I suspect it was a marketing tactic.

    I played this game for a while

    there are zombies massively appearing. it helps you get rid of stress by punching, explosion of powerful skills.

    it seems the difficulty of the game depends on the distribution of
    skill level and status that you give to your character so, i guess
    someone can easily clear a certain stage but another can't

    The name looks like the best part of the game.
    Again, another game where you play -- and it's not that fun -- and then you shop for stuff that lets you play a sub-par game with 'new enhanced abilities'.
    Since when is going to the shop for upgrades considered fun gaming?!?!?

  • regkilla

    I have superCOCK. Fun to play. It's BIG!!! :D

  • tim240

    So is the game too easy or too HARD?! (I had to say it)

    Hope Super Pussy is in the works!  A flying cat or something?

    • agentblank

      Haha that would be hilarious if they really did that

  • ExcaliburEdge

    I'm really surprised there hasn't been more comments on this game. I suppose a lot of them might have been removed by the mods...
