Craz'd! is a downloadable game by Hubol Gordon of Terrible Productions, released on December 4, 2009 after nine months of making it. Hubol himself compares it to having a baby.The story is as follows: You are a small rodent-like critter who constantly glitches out, and you are exploring the vast world around you. Over the course of the game, you will fight weird bosses and monsters, gain awesome power-ups, and eventually unravel the secret of why you are here.raocow has done a Let's Play of this game here.A Spiritual Successor was released in 2014, dropping the Craz'd part of the name but keeping the numberTwo.Compare to An Untitled Story.
Craz'd! has the following tropes:
An Ice Person: The Chilly Pepper, gained from defeating Mr. Fridge, functions like the Hot Pepper (see Playing with Fire below), but instead you burp ice. Burning ice.
Apocalypse How: Planetary/Species Extinction, engineered. Loon's kind are apparently one of the few surviving species.
Color-Coded for Your Convenience: When most bosses turn red, they become vulnerable to the protagonist's jump attack. Then there's the triple boss of the Jolands, each part of whom has a colored face vulnerable only to like-colored shots that it spews out.
Dual Boss: Shock and Horror, the punctuation brothers.
Fetch Quest: After defeating the Doctor, two of these open up, and both task you with finding ten valuables for certain people.
Fission Mailed: The Doctor creates a disease that sucks out Loon's sanity energy for its power, causing Loon to die. However, in this case, Death thinks that was cheap, and allows Loon to come out and face off against the final boss.
Hold the Line: The first and third parts of the final boss battle.
In Memoriam: This game was made in loving memory of Amanda Shoemaker.
Kaizo Trap: The player can still be damaged during boss cutscenes, so it's possible to finish a boss, only to get taken out by a stray projectile as the boss is giving his dying speech. Fortunately, you can still move around during cutscenes, so the player can still dodge.
Red Herring: After the Doctor harnesses the power of the Disease in the last stage of the boss fight, a trio of large arrows start pointing to the left, suggesting that you need to outrun the ensuing blast. But if you do, you'll just wind up trapped in a dead end with nothing to do but get killed. Instead, you're supposed to hold your ground and shoot the Disease before it fires.
