Dr Maybee and The Adventures of Scarygirl

Dr Maybee and 
The Adventures of Scarygirl
Aug 16, 2011

Dr. Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl is based on a graphic novel, Scarygirl, by Nathan Jurevicius. I am not familiar with the graphic novel, so I can’t share any connections between it and the Mini. Actually, this Mini first appeared as a Flash game a few years ago. Unfortunately, the game went offline and has been replaced by a news snippet about its Minis version that points the reader to the game’s page at TikGames’ website. I am not certain if Dr. Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl is a direct port of the Flash game since there’s no way to confirm. This project by TikGames is rather new for them, albeit weird. They are known for well-made clones (very well made, I’ll say) like Rocks N’ Rockets, Panda Craze and Shapo. This time, TikGames is in with an original title, which is radically different in spirit compared to its previous endeavours. Dr. Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl is a little niche title, leaning more on being fanservice than gaining new fans. The graphics on the PSP are, to put it bluntly, hideous. They are stretched, muddy and pixelated. Given the phenomenal artwork and vibrant color scheme of the source material, it’s a shame it does not translate well. I don’t know what is wrong with the game’s graphics, but they do give me a headache. The way the background “moves” against the moving Scarygirl is nauseating. You control Scarygirl, a zombie/octopus/pirate-looking girl in search of Dr. Maybee to help her with the mysterious man of her dreams (literally). So, you begin by jumping inside your room collecting fish. The various fish in this game are important. The blue fish in this game provide rudimentary healing; the huge pink fish give a healthy boost. You can also collect jewels floating around everywhere and break eggs that may or may not contain fish or jewels.
