CoD of Duty Shoots Fish in a Barrel

CoD of Duty Shoots Fish in a Barrel

A hilarious take on the popular shooter franchise points out the obvious: a cod is a type of fish.

CODBLOPSII(Call of Duty: Black Ops II) is one of the stupidest acronyms of all time. A cod is, of course, a kind of fish, and one enterprising fan has built an entire game based around this fact. Introducing CoD of Duty, the premier shooting fish in a barrel simulator.

The CoD of Duty "campaign" should take you about ten to fifteen minutes to complete. This is a deliberate move on the part of the game's creator, Ryan Evans, who likens the short and ultimately unfulfilling game to a standard FPS' single player campaign.

"A lot of the 'joke' is how I feel about the standard FPS single player campaigns. Short, not terribly interesting, and completely over the top with their story elements."

You'll start off shooting fish in a barrel with a pistol, but as the game progresses, gun-toting fish will enter the fray, and your arsenal will expand to include an assault rifle and a rocket launcher. It's not a particularly challenging game, but it's somewhat satisfying to see the fish explode in an exaggerated torrent of gore after you so much as graze them with a bullet. Evans indicated that he wished to include an underwater level and a co-op mode, but felt that the joke might have gotten too old if the game dragged on too long.

The game was made as part of the one game a month game jam for indie developers. You can play the game for free, either in-browser using the unity engine plugin, or via a free download for Windows, Mac or Linux. You can even download the game's full source code, if you wish.

This game is racist against fish, and where's the multiplayer!?!

It needs a multiplayer, with several "maps" which consist of a single room in different colors (brown, tan, white, and grey, of course) with spawn points in each corner, and all characters by default spam grenades every 2 seconds unless you hold a key to make them not do that.

Those fish are n00bs, barrel-camping like that.

Who cares about single player campaigns, doesn't this person know that all games these days need to have a multiplayer competent tacked on to be considered good?

Jokes aside, it's cute commentary.

Best. Game. Ever. That final boss was awesome.

This is what hardcore gaming is all about

Daaaah Whoosh:
Best. Game. Ever. That final boss was awesome.

Yeah. I played it a couple days ago when it came up on RPS, and that ending is pretty much perfect. It's not really much of a game itself, but it does a great job of poking fun at other shooters and is totally worth the 10-15 minutes it takes to run through it.

Those fish man, those damn dirty fish!

That Endboss is really hard to take down. Seriously Epic Fight!

Anybody else have problems with the controls? It seemed like I spent half the time just trying to get my damn cursor lined up.

Wait this isn't an official Call of Duty game? I couldn't tell the difference.

Best Game 2013. Masterful soundtrack, beautiful graphics, perfect story direction. 423/10.

It's obviously not an official game, it has the colour green!

How in the hell has this game not been made already? It is so obvious.

You wasted a one-month game project on a low blow against CoD? Dude, get some new ideas, this one is overused.

Sylveria:

Really? The lack of quicktime events gave it away for me.

This man deserves a medal.

And another one for the Minecraft-esque graphics. Pretty sure that's just the limitations of whatever he was working with, but I find it adds some charm to his work.

I want a cat mod for it, as in you are a cat eating the fish.

Also all of those rooms have to come in separate $15 DLC packs.

Goddamnit. That cat avatar and the premise of the game is making me want this right now.

I can see the guy turning this into an iOS or Android port and making millions off of the guys in the iOS camp. I can see it happening!
