Epic Combo is like an evil, reverse Lemmings. Instead of trying to save tiny, helpless creatures from certain doom, you’re trying to setup an arena where you can score a 10,000-hit combo against them. In this case, the tiny creatures are turtles and also happen to bounce if you hit them hard enough.
But the arena itself is just a bare room, with a pipe ejecting turtles at one end and a turtle exit at the other. The secret is to spend your money from successful combo hits to buy traps such as buzzsaws, explosive mines and laser sentries. These can be combined to send turtles flying and bouncing around the room after your initial strike with a hammer.
Epic Combo is a fun little exercise in creating controlled explosions, which is why it’s such a fun little Flash game. It also shows a fun example for the Lemmings genre: Instead of carefully guiding them across pitfalls and puzzles, you instead carefully plot the trajectory of their explosion. As a fan of explosions, I heartily approve.
Why You Should Check this Out: Epic Combo is a fun, simple game of controlled mayhem and carefully placed traps. Tons of tiny little turtles all bouncing around the screen, all triggered by your character swinging a comically oversized mallet, are very satisfying. A quick little diversion to brighten your Friday morning.
