Rated 3 / 5 stars

I think this game has a pretty solid engine, however, there were quite a lot of things that bugged me. First was the long pauses in dialogue. They are not needed, they just make you want the dialogue to end more quickly. Second was the walking speed. It's insanely slow and makes progression really monotonous. You could fix this by adding a run button. Third was the graphics. I guess I'm not the sort of person to critique this but they could have used better contrast and maybe a bit more color. The in-battle spites were very lazily upscaled as well. The battle system is pretty impressive. However, it severely lacks an escape button for how often you are going to get into a random battle.

It's a nice engine, but could be pretty refined, so I give it 3/5 stars.


mixceed responds:

Thank you Joshsouza. I really appreciate the time you took in playing our game and writing your comments up. This is a engine we look forward to fine tune with feedback.

- I am grateful that you mentioned the pause part in the dialogue, as it does affect flow.
- We hope to increase the walking speed in the next update or adding a run button like you and others have suggested.
- The escape is done through pressing shift in the attack commands to find it because I wanted to emulate how Final Fantasy 7 was done. But we see now how that isn't a very good idea, and should just add an escape button instead.

Once again, thank you for your suggestions.

Nice Animation

This sort of looks like it could turn into something great. The engine is fine but the layout is very sloppy. I love the animation when attacking but there's no running or walking animation sequence, instead, the character just moves to the right or left without moving this feet. This has potential for a future game but I think you already discussed the main bug in this.

The art is fine but when you are going to officially make the game, try making the layout looks less sloppy because right now the buttons are un-aligned like you did it in 3 minutes. Try not to use the default font too because it looks very un-professional. if you need an extra artist too, PM me... because I am bored. the game engine is decent but has some known bugs to it which you explained.

Overall, the test is pretty nice. Contact me when the game is finished.

Oh god no...

Nice sort of tribute.. thing.. to OCD+ as if that hasn't scarred and traumatized me bad enough. But was pretty neat, it really gave me the same effect I got when I was playing OCD+ and such like the same type of music at the beginning and the same menu layout. I admit though, it is way too hard. Like when you have to memorize the Binary.

I think you should add medals to it so we get more than a couple days wasted. maybe contact an Admin.? I don't really know how the medals system works. I think it would be easier to make the Binary level in flash then solve it! It kind of sucks that you have to play EVERY game to get the passwords though, not really knowing what it will accomplish in my pathetic life of nothing. takes a lot of time too... unless I cheat and screen-cap the code like a little butthole.

The radio game is very hard too.. and it even says to just press random buttons. And as for the "trap" game, I won't even mention. But overall pretty witty of you and a very good sequel to the original. Just maybe work on the variety on the games and how the difficulty is set on them.

Another Awesome Job

I have to say that this is an awesome game and I really thought that the Gnomergeddon one was actually the main game but it's cool how this works. I barely gotten past act 1 yet but for the title music, it reminds me of Sonny 2? I love how there is so much medals in the whole thing though and it really gets my medal score up even though I am not that big on the whole medals feature but it's really good anyways. I give DavidORR credit for the music, he did an awesome job which is why I think it reminds me of sonny, he made the music for Sonny,

I thought the first scene in it was good with the lip-syncing but why didn't you do that for the game? Oh well, it would be weird if you did but it's not a serious thing. The art and gameplay was amazing, as for the first cut-scene which was wonderful and the lips moved naturally not like it got cut around as I do it so really great job on the animation there. It would be nice to tone down the difficulty a bit because on easy, I can't beat the first boss but maybe it's because I just really suck at playing the game.

The controls were a bit weird and maybe it could be the "f" key to got a new weapon because it is easier like that. I like how you put the arcade versions first so it makes you want to play it more. Oh wait, I just saw the options. Well anyways, you did a very great job on the series and I can't wait for the next one in the series. Lots of games though!

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my review and keep up the awesome work!

I thought the game itself was pretty fine but kind of got boring and repetitive because it is one of those trade in games where you just end up walking everywhere and talking to people but it is cool how it all leads up to the most important thing Kee needs but Kee IS a weird name. Did you know that?

The art was fine with the pixels but I think it needed to be a bit more detailed a bit to help it a little because it is just a bunch of colored pixels mixed into each other but then again the waterfall was pretty god but just make more things to make it seem a little less repetitive. The story was pretty generic though like "I will give you this for that" until you find the stupid gem to replace the eye and boom, you're done with that shit.

The audio was pretty cool but no sound effects? ;( Jk it's pretty good and fitting for a game like this but did you make the music or did someone else write it or uh compose it. Then I see it was a guy named bob. I think you showed some effort into making this and it is a quick 5 minute game you could just play when you are supa bored so nice job altogether.

I really don't think there is much else to say then putting a bit more animation into it because I only saw people arms moving and Kee moving and the waterfall moving and the statue and that was it in the whole thing so work on that and all of the other crap that I told you about and I am going to play number 4 when it comes out so bye!

I thought this flash was pretty good and I really enjoyed it but the instructions were all weird because all of the connectors looks like something you should avoid but the name was pretty witty.

The art was really good and decent but I think it could be a bit better but the high scores table was pretty good too and it was good to do that. I think the animation was good too like the train coming and the warning for the train coming was all pretty cool plus everything else like that but why was the intro like not animated because it would be pretty cool if you did that.

I think you spent lots of time and effort onto this but it was pretty underrated to me because it looks like you spent a lot of time on this but the power up things was pretty cool too but the story wasn't that good and it is just a generic train chase but is there an end to this game because it's pretty stupid to have a game without an ending to it whatsoever unless there's a free play mode but it was a bit challenging to me.

Overall I think this is a pretty good game that needs a bit more attention on it because it looks like a pretty good game to me and I found it saddening that I didn't see it in the portal when it came out but it's pretty cool and I think you should keep up the good work.

It's a highscore game so there's really no real ending to it. Get as much points as you can. But I felt that adding some sort of a story was still important. It answers the question "why am I doing this" for people. It may seem little silly but people find it important to understand the game like that. It gives reason for playing.
Thanks for your review.

I thought this was a nice little game but it was really just breakout with an Explict song playing. So I will start now:

ART 4/10

I didn't really like all of the gradient and it just told me that you were too lazy to put in much art in it plus the ball is all gradient too but it would be nice to have a better background though.

AUDIO 5/10

I guess since the audio is one of the main points of the game, II guess I have to give it an OK score but why did you put the song in for a breakout game? It doesn't really make much sense nor does it explain anything. But It would kind of be cool to put a bit more sounds into it.

GAMEPLAY 6/10

I thought the fast ball was kind of cool but I think it should be more challenging because really? 20 lives! that's kind of overdoing it so be sure to fix it once you get the mute button in. That's another thing, the mute button should be easy since you just have to put only 1 or 2 lines of code in to do it so be sure to fix it.

ANIMATION 5/10

I gotta say it was cool to made this fast pacing but the only animation I could find was the ball moving and the blocks disappearing but at least the thing worked and oh yeah, the rectangle at the bottom moving.

OVERALL 6/10

I think this could be a good game if you put in powerups and stuff into it and make it more challenging and a bit more artwork because I kind of lost attention at the second level but remember, try to make the game addicting and make people want to play it!

Thanks for the review man. The incredible amount of gradients were because I have no artistic talent. Not quite lazy, it actually took me a large amount of time to get right, lol.

Thanks for the suggestions and the review though man, I appreciate it.


ChatterBox Chat Room v2.0 ChatterBox Chat Room v2.0

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Simple

Seeing that you probably put a lot of effort into this, I gave you seven stars because there is already a couple of chatrooms on Newgrounds and the other IMing websites but Chatrooms aren't really that now popular since we have forums and other ways of communicating even though this got a pretty good score and I am glad that people are still using it not including the Chatbots Alice and Generic NG User but the bots made it pretty cool and if I didn't see the description, I would have thought they were real people!

The concept isn't that original like I explained in the first paragraph including the originality but do you get paid for the ads or something? Because I saw a NG ad and some others on this but you should have more options instead of just creating a user profile you should make it like a draw and chatroom or something more original. I don't know.

I think this has some room for improvement and it was just too simple for a good chatroom. You could at least put some emoticons or something because it is pretty boring even though the ideas I said might have spamming but It is weird that nobody spams here even though there isn't a "Ban" feature.

So overall, well just look at paragraph 3 sentence 1 to see my overall from this review. You have my word for it! ;)

A little Laggy and Needs Improvement

It was OK and I will take all the GOOD criticism and put it into a good review so here it goes:

You didn't have a good choice of music because I had to press the X above before I started writing this because it is THAT annoying.

Also It made the page laggy for some reason and I waited like 2 seconds for the button to know that the cursor was over it which is weird because this game is only 2.7 MB of space or it might be my computer even though it doesn't do this for games and movies that are like 20 mb in size. Oh well!

The art was pretty decent but didn't go well with the cars that are driving by. Also it was cool that you could hold the space bar until the car came to make it easier but why did you put medals? It doesn't really do anything and there is only 4.

Also what you should add is a high scores table from Machi media or something because this kind of game should have that. You also need to make the buttons bigger and like make a good menu screen because it is just text and two buttons with a light blue backround.

You need a little skill to play this like timing because I only got through like two cars. But I feel sorry for you that you got Zero-bombed when this was on the front page I mean, that's harsh. gave this game 5 to help you get it back and if favoriting this game helps bring up the score, I will do that if you reply to this.

Also it was kind of repetive the way it was the same car just zooming by so you should find a way to make it you know, more original then a plain reactivity test but I do not agree with Stannous' review at all. I had a lot of time to react so he just probably sucks at playing it.

I liked the backround in it because that pretty much saved you from me giving this a 5/10 on this review so good job for that. I see that you have edited this a lot and I can't believe that I didn't see this because I'm been patroling Newgrounds for the past 2 months every day! Oh well, you are lucky that you posted this on the review request club even though they didn't accept it.

I will keep voting 5s on this every day to get your score back because it seemed to work for me on my game even though those were all my votes. LOL. I saw all of Crimsonskullfuku's reviews and I am sad to say that he zero-bombed every one except his latest which must suck for you. But don't worry, it is only one jerkass you have to deal with. (Omg I sweared! That's only happened once on my Reviews!)

I can't figure out what else to say but I spent more time on this review then playing this so overall it needs a little improvement and here is the overall score:

Art 8/10
Funitude 6/10
Originality 5/10
Concept 6/10
So I put all of the REAL criticism the douchebags said and put them in a good manner and into this review! (Omg! I sweared again!)
I hope you are lucky to get one of the Big Josh Souza Reviews and good day to you.
