* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The whole [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalypse]] theory is usually horribly overused, but Wally's trip to his uncle's house involves castles, decrepit ghettos, guys randomly throwing bombs, and a subway system that passes right through an underground snake fortress. Despite all of that, the ''only'' thing observed as weird in this world is substance abuse problems. At the very least, this is some sort of bizarre CrapsackWorld.
* WraparoundBackground: Courtesy of a very repetitive tileset, the game's levels tend to lean towards this effect without even trying.
