Merry Christmas everyone, hope you’re having a great day and have received many gifts and eaten many fantastic meals. Last year I gave away four copies of Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, so I decided to bring some more beautiful beans to the community.
Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine is an americanized clone of Puyo Puyo, which was the first game in the popular-in-Japan series. Instead of fighting various demons of Satan you end up battling Dr. Robotnik’s robots in hot puzzle action.
While the Puyo Puyo series has done numerous things to modernize the series, I still find the rules of the original to be the best. It’s basically a frantic rush to bury your opponent. No reversals, comebacks or anything like that most of the time. It’s the puzzle game equivalent of a six-shooter duel except you have to set up Mouse Trap to fire the gun. I love it.
So why would I give out copies of this game? It’s one of my favorite Genesis games, and I think it’s a pretty fun twist on the puzzle genre. Also Scratch is in it, the best robot chicken ever. (Sorry Seth Green). Last but not least, I’m PRETTY sure no one else is giving out copies of Mean Bean Machine. So there’s no chance of people going “Oh I got this from Aunt Jenny.” Fuck that, Aunt Jenny wouldn’t dare touch this mean bean majesty.
So here we are again, I’m giving out 10 copies of Mean Bean Machine to the first ten people to post. In your post please put down your steam ID (example: http://steamcommunity.com/id/recspec ). From there I’ll add you and gifts will be delivered! First come, first serve, once they are gone, that’s it!
It’s been a fun year here at Giant Bomb, here’s to an awesome community. You all are the best.
