Hannah Samuels is playing her KoKron’s Revenge game on her PlayStation 5. She is about to start level 1 – she has just bought the game. When she presses ‘PLAY’, she feels her body tingle as her cells become pixelated and she shrinks. The screen expands and wraps her into its glowing folds. She has been sucked into the game!
She finds herself armed with an axe. A voice speaks to her. “To escape the game, you must complete this level and defeat Moro. Do you accept your quest?” “Yes,” replies Hannah, as she can see no other way of getting home.
Hannah regrets buying this stupid game but she has no time to think as a kangaroo starts throwing boomerangs at her. Hannah ducks under the boomerangs and wallops the kangaroo, with her axe, before the boomerangs return. The evil creature collapses on the sandy ground. Hannah continues forward and scales a cliff by jumping across narrow, rocky ledges, defeating three biting mountain goats by stomping them into submission.
Then comes KoKron’s minions, the Totoninis. They sit on a mountain peak like stones. Hannah leaps onto the top of the cliff, alerting the Tototininis. They are short people armed with bazookas. Hannah weaves around the missiles, walloping one Totonini after the other. She is aching all over. Hannah stops to catch her breath, just for a second. A missile hits her, destroying two hits. Hannah notices a checkpoint and activates it. She defeats another Totonini. It squeals and falls to the ground.
Another missile hits her, shattering her first life and a hit. She scuffs her boots on a rock jutting out of the meadow grass as she falls down. Hannah defeats the rest of the Totoninis without being hit again. Out of nowhere, Moro descends onto the peak. “MORO FIGHT!!!” he roars. Moro is a giant troll with a small patch of hair on the very top of his head. He is wearing a green shirt and a belt loaded with red hot chillies – they are his weapons. Moro throws a chilli missile at Hannah. She sprints sideways and climbs Moro’s boot by grabbing onto the decorative buckles. Our hero makes Moro scratch his head by throwing a bit off shirt fluff up there. She hitches a ride on his hand. Our warrior then shuffles down to Moro’s neck. She pushes her axe against Moro’s chin. Moro’s head juts up and Hannah falls to the ground. Moro pounds the ground and throws chillies at Hannah. In return, she gets up and attempts to restart her climb. This time, she chops Moro’s hair off.
Hannah is looking for a sensitive spot – Moro’s legendary head lump. Her axe quickly makes contact with it, so Hannah pummels the lump with her fists. It eventually disappears. Moro roars in pain and plucks Hannah from his head. He throws her into his mouth, where she has to battle plaque ghosts and toothpaste devils. She throws saliva on the plaque ghosts, rendering them frozen. As for the toothpaste devils, Hannah covers them in the remains of the plaque ghosts. Finally our fierce warrior smashes Moro’s teeth with her axe. He spits her out and collapses. The ground rumbles and cracks under his titanic weight!
Some more text scrolls down the screen. You Win! Hannah feels that she is being stretched out as she realises she is returning to the real world. Her mum comes in. “Are you enjoying your game?” she asks. “Yeah,” replies Hannah, “It’s a really realistic one”.
