YMMV / Another Code

  • Earworm: The music, while quite good, repeats over and over and over and over...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Related to The Legend of Zelda series. The first game was made in 2005, back when the Zelda timeline was very confusing and all over the place. The protagonist Ashley can find a book in the library: "The Legend of Zelda Timeline"... but you aren't allowed to read it. Fast-forward six years later, the Hyrule Historia art book is released, which might as well have been that exact book: it explained the whole timeline up to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
  • Iron Woobie: Ashley. She goes through a lot of emotional trauma and just keeps at it.
  • Moe: Ashley, especially when she's feeling sad or happy.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Take your pick with Ryan. Was it manipulating Bill into killing Sayoko in the first place? Threatening to Mind Rape Richard if Ashley didn't cooperate with his plan, and then doing it anyway when he thought she was taking too long and making Ashley break down in tears? Trying to screw with her mind and make her choose between her own memories and her mom's to further his goals? Or how about when he decides to just shoot her when she doesn't play along after that? And all of this just to get back at his dad for not only erasing his memories as a kid, but also possibly didn't do anything to save his mom from her death possibly as well as Richard, Sayoko, & Bill for participating the memory erasure project with him as the test subject & even possibly Ashley for having a mother that was still alive & giving the motherly love to her as a toddler.
  • Nightmare Fuel: If you fail to get the good ending in Another Code, D will be doomed to haunt the island for the rest of his afterlife. He will never find out how and why he died and since it's very unlikely that anyone would ever visit Blood Edward Island after the events of this game, he will be completely alone. For all eternity. Doubles as a Player Punch, as getting the good ending can be a real Guide Dang It!.
  • Player Punch: Non-lethal version in Another Code R: You're forced turn around manually for the first time in the game rather than just pressing a button and swiveling 90 degrees to see the ghost of Matt's sister, Kelly, after he tells you to look. And then you realize that Matt doesn't realize she's dead and thinks she's really standing there.
    • D's fate in the bad ending when you get just how bad it is for him.
  • Tear Jerker: A few times, notably when Ashley's mom is revealed to be dead and the "good" ending.
    • Another Code R. Chapter six. Kelly. The fact they suddenly play the "reunion theme" from the first game when Matt remembers doesn't help.
  • That One Puzzle: The puzzles aren't terribly difficult, but the 15 Puzzle is this by being the most annoying.
  • Toy Ship: Ashley is a day shy of 14, and D was somewhere near that before he died. That doesn't stop them from being perfect for each other!
