Game Freebies: Cartman’s Authoritah

Introduction: Since jkOnTheRun pointed it out, I’ve been having a bit of a rummage through the freebes on offer at the Windows Marketplace, including quite a few free games. They’re mostly demo versions, with just the first few levels, or racing games with just one type of car and track, but they’re generally small enough to download (takes a while on dial-up, but still do-able), and if you’re not really into gaming much (I’m not), the first few levels might be enough for you. Many of the games are quite old, but if you don’t have the latest PC specc’d up for gaming, they might be as much as you can run anyway.

What Is It?

A little platform game, where you play the part of Cartman from South Park. Very old-fashioned, and very simple.

Worth Downloading?

If you’re feeling nostalgic, or you’re a fan of South Park, maybe. The graphics are pretty poor by modern standards, and the gameplay is very simple. It only held my attention for ten minutes or so, and I’m not that difficult to impress usually. Kind of fun, though, and should run well on old PCs.
