Mr Creosote (2004-04-25) [hide]

Avatar A local radio station is holding a competition: answer five questions about (male) rockstar 'Alex X. Pose' (for the younger readers: the singer of a then popular band called Guns 'n' roses was called 'Axl Rose') to win a romantic candlelightdinner with him. Our (male) hero is keen to be the chosen one. Yes... you'd better ignore the homoerotic elements of this story. Anyway, let's just say our protagonist is a huge fan, ok?

The questions all refer more or less directly to the singer's new album and his current live tour. Off to the local music store... damn the racks are a mess! Asking the clerk doesn't help much, either - she's just annoyed and unhelpful. Good thing there are alternative sources to buy new CDs...

This is where the advertisement comes in: Backstage is promoting the 'Liveclub'. That's one of these stores in which you have to become a member before you can buy things. Members can then imagine to get something 'cheaper' than elsewhere - at the price of being forced to regularly buy something. And if you don't buy something 'voluntarily', you'll get something nobody else wanted automatically...

This club, of course, directly and indirectly helps you to solve all the questions. Sometimes it's products from their vast collection, sometimes you utilize the tons of gifts you get from them. What have we learned today? Liveclub = great, all others = bad.

Backstage is made in the same style as Snackzone: you'll immediately feel at home with the joystick controls and the graphics. It is, however, a 'purer' Adventure. You can't die, there is no action at all. Puzzles aren't much better than in Snackzone, though, so on the whole, Backstage isn't fully on par, yet still an entertaining little game.
