I love games that turn things upside down. Like being the dungeon master in an RPG, being the healer in a party instead of the hero, stuff like that. And this game turns things upside down. You are an INTERN! in a company that runs a video game. So on your first day, you get a caterpillar costume to wear and are not only responsible for letting the hero kill you and drop health if they need it but also when he is going filling in the coin slots or filling up the chest again. Without the hero ever seeing you do that or even seeing you jump… you are a caterpillar… you can’t jump!
In Super Intern Story you see your progress while doing your internship at this company and you get more complicated and challenging tasks the further you get. It has a lot of humor and in almost all stages you can get fired if you do your job horribly… Screwing up a little is okay, as long as you’re not as bad as Jim… :P. BTW Never trust Jim.. take it from me… I have worked with him and he has bad ideas ;).
While I had a lot of fun with Super Intern Story, it has very hardcore achievements. and I know I won’t be enjoying trying to get all of those myself. They are just too crazy and too far out of my comfort zone. A lot of them aren’t hard and are just fun. Like seeing you getting fired at every job (with chapter selection you can always go back and get fired, or if you did.. do a better job and not get fired). Or find a few hidden rooms or tricks to get around the building. However, there are a few of them that are just crazy. As an example: there are those different mini-games for every different costume, they are a lot of fun but can be challenging. In each of them you have 3 lives and most of the time you can get hit 1 or 2 times before you lose a life. After you have finished them all you get the ultra challenge option to do them all back to back with only 4 lives… this sounds doable but would already be out of my comfort zone… but then there is an achievement for finishing the ultra challenge without losing any life? :'(. I know myself well enough that that would only make me angry and hate the game. So I decided for myself not to go for those and not ruin a good game for myself while trying to finish all the achievements. If you’re up for a real challenge… this might be the game for you.
TLTR: I had a lot of fun with Super Intern Story; the humor is great and the game is awesome, but if you don’t enjoy hardcore challenges… don’t go for all the achievements in this otherwise great game.
