->Now, I'd like to discuss what I consider to be ''YandereSimulator'''s biggest game design flaw. Most of the elimination methods currently available in the game require the player to have knowledge of exactly when and where they need to stand, what item they need to have equipped, and what skills they require, in order to pull off a certain execution. Presently, this information can ''only'' be obtained by watching my Website/YouTube videos. That's poor game design.

->''Wow.'' How complicated can it be for an {{Atari}} game? Let alone that this is one of the few Atari games you can actually beat, whereas most of them are just about trying to get a high score--and when I say "it ''can be beat''," that's hypothetical because honestly I think it'd be easier to '''find the real lost Ark'''! Just the fact that you have to feel around secret passage ways and stuff it makes you feel like...Indiana Jones. [[LifeImitatesArt Well, it got me there.]]
-->--'''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd''' plays ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' for UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}}

->But unlike the rest of the spells in the game, this one has a secondary function. There's a certain spot that seems like a dead end. You use the spell '''here''', and it makes a temple come out of the ground! How are you supposed to know all that unless you read NintendoPower? The townspeople don't help that much; they might as well just say ''"Get the power! Nintendo Power!"'' Yeah, it's classic hidden cryptic Nintendo horseshit!
