About the cartoon where you take revenge on your teacher!
Don't Whack Your Teacher game was designed by Box 10 and is not associated with the cartoon series by Doodie cartoons. However the game shares very similar features to the likes of Whack Your Boss and Whack Your Computer by Doodie.
In Don't Whack Your Teacher your aim is to find all 13 ways to hit the teacher. Objects are placed in various locations around the teacher's office and you must locate all 13 to complete the game. The game is fairly easy to complete and you should have it mastered within 30 minutes tops.
The animations of the various ways to rake revenge on your teacher marry up well with that of Doodie cartoons with graphical details of various objects being used and even a sequence where the teacher is forced out of his office window by a swarm of bees and a flying kick from his student!
The white washed backgrounds and heavy grey lines are similar to the doodie cartoons except with a slightly higher level of detail.
Considering how difficult it must be to create a teacher game similar to well animated doodie cartoons, Box 10 have done a great job of making some of the sequences very enjoyable to watch, they certainly match whack your boss for entertainment value. Also some new original objects are used that do not appear in the Whack Your Boss game. For example the jar of bees, the insect repellant sprayer (my favourite) and the kettle will stop your annoying teacher's relentless jabberings.
The baseball bat sequence has to be the most comprehensive way to whack your teacher.
I think one thing that is really missing from this game (and this is a real shame because the rest of the game can't be knocked) is a good annoying rant from the teacher. In the whack your boss game the boss' constant jabberings at the employee do actually make you feel angry and you can empathise with the employee's reaction of killing his boss. The boss' speech goes on for a while and is cleverly written about the classic slave labour job that many underskilled americans unfortunately have to do every day (the overworked and underpaid scenario). You almost get the urge to want to kill him yourself. But in the Don't Whack Your Teacher game the teacher doesn't really say anything to make you or the boy you control feel angry. He murmers all the way through the game which is a bit of a disappointment. A bit of witty and demoralising language would have gone down a treat with fans of the game. With the speech virtually non existent it leaves players feeling a little neutral when choosing a weapon by which to whack the teacher with. This is something where whack your boss most definately has the upper hand.
Hopefully Box 10 will bring out another version of everyone's favourite teacher game shortly with better lecturer dialogue and plenty more objects to use in the office to take revenge on your teacher with! Enough rambling about the game, why not try find all 13 ways to whack the teacher and if your struggling to get them consult our guide here.
