Vsauce on youtube brought me here... and I like it!
I love the concept! MAKE MORE!
old concept flashed!
you need to fix the momentum of the ball so when it's moving foward and drops, it doesnt lose that foward momentum. thats just not how gravity works.
other then thay, brilliant concept based on an old game from the early 90's. will be wating this designer eagerly to see what he makes.
I know only now, in 2010. But it's too late, as I don't have the source fla now [:(
all these goddamn snakes on the god damn plane!!!
Ok, seriously though, this game has been overkilled too many times. when i see a game like this that has been done repeatedly, i expect to see somthing new and diffrent, however I assume that your learning flash so ill be gentle :)
I score based on 5 criteria- sound, graphics, gameplay, storyline, originality.
Sound- 2 The big blocky sound goes well with this game, draws me
back to my younger days playing it on the apple IIe (yes i am
Graphics- 1 the graphics were ok, could have been a lot better though-
even the original game had a head on the snake.
Gameplay-2 gameplay was bug free, controls were simple. scoring
system worked well, although I would have liked to have
seen a high score server.
Storyline-N/A Had to score you with a N/A on this one, I know snake has
no story per-se, but just remember to keep a goal in mind.
Originality- 0 Again, I had to score you low purely because its all been
done before. If you make a number two, try looking for new
ideas to add, i.e. a jump button, walls, enemys and so on.
All in all not a bad attempt at an old classic, but think you could have done some simple things to improve gameplay and the general shine of it all. 5/7 total, so considering the N/A ill lift it to 8/10.
Ok, I dont mind reviewing works that are "out there", but when someone says "this game is about the message" Then there better damn well be a
message. And it better be somthing that we dont already know.
giving people a message that you can win or lose is like saying theres day or night. dont try to do the obvious things, try teaching us somthing.
now, as for the game itself. i break the 10 points up into sub catagories- originality, sound, gameplay, storyline and graphics. tahts a total of 2 points per item.
Originality- 1 Platformers have been and gone, they need to be really good
to stand out.
Sound- 0 simply was none, so you scored zero
storyline- 0 again there was no storyline, just a message noone seems to
be able to figure out.
gameplay- 1 the gameplay itself was simple to control, however a lack of
depth of gameplay meant that you scored low .
graphics- 1 the graphics are too simplistic. walking around with a black
square is not eye catching nor entertaining. the level itself and
the doorway scored you one point.
so, all in all, a fairly poor effort. I think you can do a lot better, and dont let these bad reviews put you off- learn from your mistakes, and come back with a new, fresh game- I will be waiting.
Turn on your speakers.
ok...the gameplay itself was very interesting and unique for a flash game. the big pixelly graphics are very reminisent of the old days of the atari and the repetitive music suited this theme well.
with all this in mind, i think the storyline could have been done without- due to the fact that the older games had no real storyline, you just kinda played. that and the story was just plain wierd.
a good concept but i dont think this will be a winner for you. take what you learn from this and use it to develop a better game.
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!!
What an amazing, cute game!
now normally I am into the more adult violent games, however I found this game's storyline to be quite unique and hilarious. watching little wheel run around getting things working was highly entertaining indeed.
the music set the mood perfectly, the overlaying of simple black graphics over toned backgrouds was a fresh approach, and the interface was simple enough for a child to use.
My only complaint about the game, is the length- I wanted more! with that, I really hope you will make a number 2, it is sure to get front page.
a great simple game that the whole family will find entertaining and funny whilst filling in time. :¬Þ
My favorite game on NG bar none
i think the title says it all. best strategy game on NG. period.
great storyline, good gameplay, however, no music....you need to find some music to suit the mood of the game, not just for the menu. at some points i could see where no music would be good for dramatic effect, but you still need music to make that dramatic event, i.e. seeing his wife hung.
I am very keen to see your next game, I think your on a winner here.
8 out of 10 because of the problem with the music
hmmm....ignore the last few comments....
im not giving you medium rating, because i asssume you were testing somthing out, or were you looking for some advice?
if you were making a program for actual use, maybe include a reset option and a function to count down, and some sort of alarm at the end of it...just an idea.
and to the people who made the rude comments, not all flash has to be games and movies...sometimes people want to make somthing of use, for example, a counter.
