First and Last – A Game of Greed

LAST WEEK I explained the first few rounds of first of FIRST AND LAST and how hard it is to play logically early on but with the game progressing, you can slowly survive through skill and not just through dumb luck.


The last round is the money grab and is all about getting the most money out of the BBC. And the strategy of this can be just as interesting. (PS: I know this is 6 days late)

First and Last – Non Random Random

When I watched FIRST AND LAST on the BBC, I wasn’t really expecting to be impressed as its effectively a series of games that are completely random chance of getting the right answer.

But how does the title link back to the game itself….?

Bendy and the Ink Machine – Build Our Machine

But WOW!  Bendy and the Ink Machine took a massive gamble in rearranging some of the early game maps as well as changing some of the objectives.

Now while I think it was a bit of a con to force you to play through the entire game to save it.  I wouldn’t have seen the new stuff if I hadn’t so I’m glad I did and this is why I believe they did it.
