Averting the End of the World (in 5 minutes), November 8, 2009

When I tried my first SpeedIF, chosen at random, I didn't know what to expect. Now I do: SpeedIF entries are quick, basic, and, at their best, a great five-minute diversion.

The Onion of Destiny is such a diversion. It rises above many of the other entries in this batch by giving the impression of existing in a larger world. To avert the end of the world, the player has to cut an onion with a ceremonial knife at the top of the Eiffel Tower before 10. It's a humorous set-up and feels part of a larger Ghostbuster-esque narrative.

A solid game for being made in an hour.
