I remember when I was a kid and I found out about ezone.com. I mean spider solitaire and mine sweeper were entertaining enough on a rainy day, but a variety of free online games? Yes, please! Now if only the DSL would have been fast enough to play all the time. I still have no idea why FatBoy Raids the Cookie Factory was so much fun. Maybe it fulfilled a hidden inner desire to be a lawless renegade … and have all the cookies. After all, who doesn’t like cookies?
FatBoy definitely loves his cookies, want some too?
I love the storyline of this game. This poor guy tried to take the law abiding approach and get his Nabisco fix from the corner store, but alas his hunger grows strong and there’s no inventory to satiate his need. There’s obviously no other alternative than to break into the cookie factory and begin a life of crime. He didn’t even have the time to take his tie off first or change into something more comfortable his need is so great! Spandex really would have been a more crime appropriate outfit choice since this factory is like Fort Knox. With all this security, it seems these cookies must be causing mega cravings for a reason. Clearly there’s a very “special” ingredient that must be guarded closely.
I think whoever was creating the game must have lost some of their creative spirit halfway through designing the game. The fifth level’s description of “more offices” seems like a total cop out (pardon the pun … I couldn’t escape it). The game also teaches an important moral lesson, that crime doesn’t pay. Unless of course you can fizzy burp your way out of a tough spot and evade law enforcement. So … crime does pay as long as you don’t get caught. I don’t know about you but I’m keeping a can of soda in the car in case of a traffic stop. Maybe fizzy burps can get me out of my next speeding ticket. 🙂
