Thingio Side A: Let's Go! Thingio!
preview
By: Tech Wing
Let's Go Thingio is a gem that's been in development for well over a year now, and while you may not see it, it becomes evident as the game progresses. It has become our brainchild, and a staple name on the forums, almost appreciated solely due to it's sporadicness, and "pseudo quality". The game was originally developed in two parts, and as such the two games are seperate files. Together they would be over a whopping 20 MB, so we're releasing the first half of the game as one file, and the second half (that's not yet finished) somewhere down the road.

BEWARE: If you're looking for a game exuding quality, this is not the game for you. It's random, random and more random. Thankfully for our picky fans (if we have any) there's an option allowing to toggle on and off annoying noises (if you're sensitive to loud noises and horrible voice acting we suggest you turn the noises 'off', although the game slightly loses it's charm as such), found in the OPTIONS menu.

Please send messages of any glitches to the Someguy & Kaepora account. Some have been left in to allow the later part of the game to stand out in quality, however, if any hamper gameplay too much, they shall be fixed.

Author Summary Score
Genogenesis7 Well, it's a great game. No doubt. The dudes who made Raving Rabbids said that you couldn't make a good adventure game out of a bunch of different gameplay styles, WELL THEY WERE WRONG! 9 / 10
Shybomb Thingio is a game which uses it's weaknesses as strengths. And it works. This unique ability is what separates it from the the other mediocre games, and makes it not-so-mediocre. 5 / 10
Giga Gamer I say once more, this game is random, which makes it one of the best games on MFGG. Final score is a... 9 / 10
SMBMadman FABULOUS! YAHOO! WHAT AN EXCELLENT GAME! I CAN'T BELIVE MFGG HAS A FUN GAME LIKE THIS! I hope you can make more of those fun MFGG combinations. 10 / 10
MarioMastar Yes, this is a fascinating game. I loved most parts of it and I really wish I could make games of around this quality. Way to go! 10 / 10
adan It's simplicity, enjoyability, nice graphics and sound is what makes Thingo an MFGG classic. Regardless of what anyone else says. Nice Job! 10 / 10
Lemmy Koppa A novelty game with little plot and an insane amount of screaming that's sure to induce laughter. Download if you're bored and want something to do. 7 / 10
Ultramario This game tries to be funny, but fails horribly. 3 / 10
Gr8Goomba88 Let's Go Thingio (part 1) is a very unique and pretty good game. However, it's not your average Mario fangame. Some of you might like it, some may not. But once you try it, it's pretty good. 8 / 10
Zero_Hero789 In a world where entire paragraphs worth of dialouge is compacted into "A DOOTLE DATADOE", in a world where there are totally original ideas, in a world with a really weird soundtrack, the unthinkable has happened. Mario got lines! 10 / 10
Bobomb99 This game is so funny, it inspires me to make something like it. It's also fun to play. Download it now. 9 / 10
Parakarry Thingio Side A could have really been a lot more. Random is fun, yes, but not when the gameplay is comprimised. 4 / 10
Mario Gamer Congratulations. The randomness might've been funny on Melatonin but on this game it's just boring and annoying. If this game wasn't made by Someguy & Kaepora I don’t think it would’ve been as highly rated. I put down this game before finishing it. It was a mess and wasn't any fun at all to play. Sorry guys, I just didn't like it. 3 / 10
Pressstart Thingio has tons to offer, ranging from funny to epic and sometimes just plain weird. Don't let the minor setbacks stop you from enjoying in full this conglomeration of video game history. 9 / 10
Techokami The legendary Thingio! has finally been released... well, at least half of it. If you don't mind a bunch of random humor instead of a serious "OMG BOWSER TAKE PRINCESS" fangame, then this is a must-download. 8 / 10
Kamin Ukiki Altogether, it can be a fun game. Sure it'll hardly make sense at a few times, but then again, what DOES make sense? %D 8 / 10
ShadowMan A series of unpolished and generally bad minigames that tries to pass itself off as a cohesive gaming experience. I appreciate the humor, but as a game rather than a parody, it's awful. 2 / 10
MegaTailzChao If you're looking for a game with calmness, peace, and a large amount of boringness, keep looking. 10 / 10
bigmariofan1.0 Download it if you beleive randomness can be fun, if you think that a random game wouldn't be fun, then read my review and see if you change your mind. 9 / 10
Black Squirrel Let me be straight; some of you will love it while some of you will hate it. Overall this is the most random game on MFGG, and certainly one of the best. 8 / 10
Average Score 7.6 / 10

this game looks wicked!!!
 
maariodood Aug 17 2006, 3:30 PM
Veeeerrryy random game xD but pretty good.
 
Parakarry Aug 17 2006, 4:21 PM
Holy christ, what a mess. A fun but weird mess. I thought Melatonin was an acid trip..
 
Red9378 Aug 17 2006, 4:37 PM
Yes! Side A is Finished!
 
MegaTailzChao Aug 17 2006, 4:53 PM
This game is awesome. It's fun, strange, wicked, and just plain freaking hilarious.
 
Red9378 Aug 17 2006, 6:58 PM
YOU THINK THIS GAME IS BAD?????
 
Kamin Ukiki Aug 17 2006, 7:12 PM
Truly, one of it's kind. It's really enjoyable. (And Side B ain't that bad either.)
 
Fifth Aug 17 2006, 7:59 PM
It certainly is a unique experience...
I encountered a bug of sorts, though. After just having fought the MSpaint Roller in the triathalon, I wandered off to the right, and ended up falling right off the platform and off the screen.
Rather annoying, to say the least, as I couldn't continue without restarting completely.
 
Kaepora Aug 17 2006, 8:39 PM
There have been more than a single error mentioned to me personally and on the main site. I suggest that people don't download the current version of the game if they want to be confronted with these glitches - they will be fixed, as most of them hinder gameplay.
 
W.A.C. Aug 17 2006, 8:46 PM
Please fix the glitches. Before I was about to fight Wario, I fell off the screen. Also, please add save points.
 
Tech Wing Aug 17 2006, 9:59 PM
The next version of Thingio will get rid of the falling off the arena glitch, when you lose in the arena you will only go back to the previous battle until you run out of mushrooms, I will hopefully fix the excape scene glitch, and you will be able to save the current segment you are on and your current HP/secret status/silly noises setup at any time in up to ten save slots, as well as (if I can hopefully get it to work)an autosave for whenever you close the game.

Rofl i laughed like hell! XD Great game, really random and fun.
 
superluigibro Aug 17 2006, 11:01 PM
One word. Random.
 
Edgar=) Aug 17 2006, 11:22 PM
fUN,WEIRD PROGRAMATION,AND COMMEDY.ESPECIALLY THE VOICES
 
Kaepora Aug 18 2006, 2:02 AM
Okay, Someguy submitted the update. it just needs to be validated by the administration and it should be a go.
 
ShadowMan Aug 18 2006, 2:52 AM
I have to say, even though I gave it a negative review, I really liked a lot of the humor. I laughed, and I enjoyed it, but it's a pretty bad game.
 
Ultramario Aug 18 2006, 7:16 AM
This game really seems weird.
 
FinalFantasy11Royru Aug 18 2006, 7:24 AM
most games aren't random but... this one is...weird
 
Reinhold Aug 18 2006, 8:57 AM
Kaepora,I'm stuck on a level on the beach and play with a fake Mario.But I don't know what to do.Can you tell me what or can you at least tell me the password to skip that level?
 
FAKER - bowser11 Aug 18 2006, 4:30 PM
Weird,i lol'd sometimes(expecially The Legend of PEACH...LOL!).But i don't like it cause it screwed my computer
 
KING PIRANHA PLANT Aug 18 2006, 5:57 PM
I can't get past The Legend Of Peach level =/
 
Someguy Aug 18 2006, 6:05 PM
The first Legend of Peach area, go off the top of the screen. I figured people would think to do that, like in Zelda games, where the screen would scroll normally.
 
Kaepora Aug 18 2006, 6:18 PM
Also, I'm sorry people are still having trouble with the Geno glitch. If you do get stuck, use the password "glitch" to advance to the next frame.
 
Yoshimaster Aug 18 2006, 8:40 PM
Someone needs to explain to me why this doesn't suck. =/
 
Edgar=) Aug 18 2006, 11:20 PM
What are the bowser´s for in the first level.(Mail me)

Pretty awesome, but very glitchy...

It's mostly collision errors.

Wow, this game is weird. In a GOOD way.

Ah, well yes, the game was developed mostly back in Someguy and myself's early days. Most buggy stuff like that was left in intentional for charm purposes.
 
Com Aug 19 2006, 3:27 AM
Dusturbing, yes, but charming, yes, charming. A modern version of Paper Mario World, and although this game had me on the floor many times, with the funny voice acting and all,
(like I said, Paper Mario World) I would enjoy seeing you two work on a more serious and clever game, for you have the talent to do so.
 
Someguy Aug 19 2006, 3:30 AM
We have several game ideas with partially done engines scattered about my hard drive, such as the one seen in Cowabunga, the Super Mario Land style one in the Thingio demo(Which is really a demo of the beginning of Side B), and even a Wario Land style engine! It just comes down to whatever I end up feeling up to working on at the time really...
 
Kaepora Aug 19 2006, 4:14 AM
Currently the Wario Land one is where our fuel is going into most of all, but we have plenty of other projects on our plate as well.
 
superluigibro Aug 19 2006, 8:20 PM
more random than i even thought
 
FAKER - bowser11 Aug 20 2006, 11:34 PM
Even though my computer crashed,this game is pure,pure,pure RAMDOMNESS!

The variety is great. It keeps you gessing.
 
Fat cat Aug 22 2006, 1:06 AM
Awsome game I like it a lot fun funny and stupid. awsome game.
 
Bobomb99 Aug 22 2006, 8:26 PM
Very funny voices in this game."THAT DOSENT HURT ME YOU MORON!"
 
Zero_Hero789 Aug 23 2006, 11:10 PM
I like how they have loads of tracks from Sonic. And the track from Soul Calibur 2.
