Stolen Pixels

Stolen Pixels #173: Riddled




The Joker is the kind of guy who will come up with a plan to kidnap a scientist and have them create a super-pheromone that will attract little old ladies to a warehouse so Joker can feed them into a woodchipper and use the resulting paste to make counterfeit money so he can buy fuel for his ice rocket that will freeze the entire city which will cause everyone to flock to his beverage vendors who will sell them hot chocolate laced with a mutagen designed to drive everyone insane.

But as messed up and crazy as they are, his plans are a lot more straightforward than anything Batman does in Arkham Asylum. The side-quests in the game come courtesy of Riddler, and if you try to work your way through his checklist you’ll spend far more time on his scavenger hunt than you will helping the hapless people of Gotham.

It’s fun, in a self-destructive, obsessive-compulsive kind of way.

Shamus Young is the guy behind this website, this book, these three webcomics, and this program.
