Thank you Steady Mushroom Ltd. for sending us Hello Pollution! to review!

Hello Pollution is a game where you help people dispose their trash. They will tell you what they need you to get rid of and how you should do it. There are a few different people who want you to get rid of their stuff. To lose a level, you have to fill up your attention bar. Your attention bar fills up when you do something wrong. There are a lot of different types of levels. Sometimes there will be levels where all you have to do is bury the trash. Other times you have to bury it in water. Occasionally, you can burn some things, and bury the rest. Often you will get a level where you have to bury barrels of toxic waste, and if you break the barrels, then your attention bar goes up.

Hello Pollution!
Highlights:

Strong Points: Entertaining
Weak Points: The price high for the number of levels available
Moral Warnings: Violence, gore

There are 14 Steam achievements that you can unlock, but most of them are pretty easy to get. The reason that I said “most” is because there were some achievements that I never would've gotten without using a guide(there are some guides on Steam). For one of them, you had to spot a soda can behind a bush and click on it(I know that sounds easy, but there is only one level that has the can). There was another one where you had to grab a bird and hold it for a while until a scarecrow falls from the sky, and I wouldn't just grab onto a bird for no reason, so that's what makes it hard.

This game had 38 levels, and I don't think that is enough for a 13 dollar game. The levels don't take very long to beat, too. I think that it should have at least 50 levels and more achievements, and if it did have that, I would probably be happier.

The game itself doesn't have a story, but every level has it's own sort of story. The characters would tell you how they got the junk and how to get rid of the junk. For example, there is an elderly woman named Christina Weebforth who says that her husband died and wants you to get rid of all of the junk that her husband left behind.

It has fitting music, but it is not amazing. The controls are simple and easy when you play on a mouse and keyboard. When you play with a controller, on the other hand, the controls are horrible. The graphics are not bad, but it is just a 2D physics game so it does not need incredible graphics. I did not experience any bugs or crashes, either.

Hello Pollution! is violent. There is a guy named Jimmy the Red Shoe who is a robber, a murderer, and a criminal. There was a level from him where he wants you to bury snitches. When you bury them, they are still alive, and are moving. You also can burn them with acid, which is what you are supposed to do. There is also one where the research laboratory accidentally creates flesh-eating zombies. In order to beat the level, you have to put the zombies in a meat grinder and then burn the remains. There is another zombie level towards the end. In this one, you have to put them into a pool of acid and wait until they burn. Jimmy the Red Shoe also has a level where he gives you a bunch of money to hide. If you burn the money, your attention meter goes up. If your attention meter is full, then Jimmy shoots you and you die. There are a couple of levels where there is a dead body as one of the items that you need to bury, which does not help matters at all, either.

This game is pretty fun and time-consuming, even though it does not have many levels. Though you are breaking the law and stuff like that in it, I still think that anyone older than 10 should be able to play “Hello Pollution!”.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
