While a great effort at a platformer, the game could have really used some more vigorous testing before uploading. The edges of each ledge seem to have weird hit detection which caused me to fall through though I definitely landed on the platform. Also, playing Montgomery's challenge was quite a pain because the drill-like objects cannot be ducked under very effectively due to the character's height - I ended up just walking through them and taking damage because my health was plentiful and the dodge was far too difficult.
There's also a bit of a snaffu with working the switches, sometimes they work perfectly, sometimes they have to be clicked multiple times to operate, which I found odd.
With more polish I honestly think you can churn out a very responsive game. The running and jumping felt very natural and tight in my opinion.
Yep, I totally agree the collision detection's not that good. Also, Montgomery's challenge is meant to be pain and you aren't really supposed to be able to pass under those. I've done it only once in testing.
The switches are really quite weird, mostly due to not actually using hit detection and instead checking the distance between you and the switch.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll definitely consider it for The Floorsland 5!
You got the style practically perfect! It's a very well done tribute. Graphically it's smooth and attractive, the gameplay is fast-paced and fun and it controlled with no delay. I enjoyed this game very much.
The only negative thing I would say is I couldn't exactly tell when I was being hit which led me to dying prematurely (when the game is so fast-paced it's a bit risky to check your stats), but that's a very minor gripe which is overshadowed by the positives.
Ridiculously addictive game go out here.
I couldn't get past Lv21 but I added it to my favourite to get on tryin'.
Nice music choice too!
You can thank brewbeer for the music.
Wow, that was so challenging. Or maybe I'm just a noob. You feel smart once you figure stuff out! Took me half an hour to complete. And ugh YOU TEASE with the ending! Haha.
It was really fun. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Can't wait for the next one.
My lame self can't even get 30+
Good game you got here. Maybe the concept has been done before but it's worth protecting, I guess.
I'd play more, but the highscore system will make me look like a loser.
p.s. the last review was unfair.
thanks =p lol how can ya not get 30+? xD you could just hide under another name so nobody would know the bottom half of the table is all you, I had to do that when it was in beta xD
It wasn't that great, but it wasn't bad either. Better than some of the quizzes that pass through judgement.
You said you would add better features if it passed judgement; I think you should have added them regardless. They might help you pass through judgement easier.
There were a few spelling mistakes. Trust me, spelling goes a long way if you want your flashes and games to look professional. My advice would be to test your games first [on a friend etc] to see what they think before submitting. They can help you check for mistakes.
You had a clever way of making the gamer read the instructions. I liked that.
Overall, it could have been better. And you're right, it was tough.
I got a crappy 3 points...
Thanks, i am working on the spelling mistakes now, I did test it on friends, but none of them are really any good at constuctive criticism.
I hope this wasn't stolen from zodiac-games. I really do. Because this is a pretty good game, and it would really annoy me if it has been.
I voted to protect, though, just in case it wasn't.
I hope you know the term 'raghead' is extremely offensive to that culture.
The game was basic and needed to be cleaned up. There was a bug, also. Some bullets just passed through the enemy.
Also, although not to do with the game, your attitude and the way you talked to the previous reviewer in your response and uncalled for, with yet another racist term.
Keep trying, though.
You seem to have some outlines for potentially good games/flashes. You just need to take time over them.
To what culture? The terrorism culture? Honestly I don't care if any terrorists are offended.... and sure my attitude is fucking horrible.... especially towards people that accuse me of being racist and a thief.... so IMO I think it was totally called for with yet another racist term. ah well about the game.... yah it could use some cleaning/deletion w/e i think it sucks.... so until I get some huge text book on action scripting I probably won't be making another game and just stick to my animations
The welcome text was very accurate.
It was far too basic, lacking in most aspects. You have the outline of an addictive game, you just need to clean it up.
Also, there were a few glitches. There were times when I didn't touch the black line, and I was sent back to the start.
thanks for the review. i'm going to make a new one and take more time
"The internet screwed the PSP"
It did in my case =P
