A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Any positive messages overshadowed by insults, manipulation, and misdirection.
Positive Role Models
Main characters, Kyle and Mel, are good friends. Kyle's superhero dreams make them accomplish some good things, but they're snarky, slobbish college students who use people and break the law to get what they want.
Ease of Play
Simple point-and-click controls. Some puzzles unnecessarily obscure.
Violence & Scariness
Comedic violence with characters getting bonked on the head by falling objects, but shown in a cartoony way.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Supreme League of Patriots is a downloadable adventure game containing adult themes. The title features characters who, while pursuing dreams of becoming superheroes and sidekicks, employ any and all means to use people and also break the law to solve their needs. Gameplay is easy to grasp, though some puzzles are needlessly complicated. The game's dialogue, while clever, contains many curse words such as "s--t" and "bitch" and is rife with adult references related to things such as sex, drinking, racism, and homophobia.
Is It Any Good?
Supreme League of Patriots is a really fun episodic adventure that's well-constructed, surprising, decidedly un-PC, and full of laughs. It manages to simultaneously honor and poke fun at the point-and-click adventure genre. For example, references are made to adventure-game standards (such as sliding-tile puzzles and torn photographs reassembling) solely to recognize them for what they often are: unnecessary padding. Supreme League of Patriots (or "SLOP," as it's smugly referred to in-game) relies solely on situations and mature character interactions for its puzzles, an approach that works, most of the time. Of course, some players could be offended by these responses since the dialogue often gets raunchy, with sex talk and toilet humor.
Where the dialog/puzzle system breaks down is where you know what you need to do but can't without talking to someone. This means you sometimes end up talking to people for no real reason, hoping the conversation lets you move forward. Also annoying is the inventory system, which doesn't delete items you've used, making you think they're meant to be used again. Although SLOP suffers from a few minor flaws, it makes up for them in style and wit. The game looks great, and its cast is full of lively caricatures, such as a Russian ex-KGB agent, a testy Peruvian receptionist, and a flamboyant homosexual superhero. Each is distinct and memorable (everyone has his or her own theme music) and, thanks to clever dialogue and great voice acting, holds his/her own against the outrageous protagonists. So long as you aren't too easily offended, Supreme League of Patriots is a first-rate edgy adventure for mature audiences that doesn't take itself seriously.
Did we miss something on diversity?
