the worst reviewer the worst reviewer

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Oh you got me, you got me good.

I just spent some time reading my old reviews of when I used to type like that.. so I really did think it was me when my name popped up.. but only for a split second. But it made my stomach lurch like OMG WHAT DID I DO NOW EVERYONES GONNA HATE ME.

In return to your trick, I've decided that you will now blink manually.

Neo v Smith Neo v Smith

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Brilliant!

I really love when artists use sound and improvise their work around that, it just seems like so much effort was put into it and works really well! Even better that you used sprites which is even more limiting than working around the sound! Great work!

the YuYu the YuYu

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I may have decided that this is the best one

Which is probably because its most exciting.. and it just looks so amazing with the fields and everything race past with the music that is perfect for it.
I love the series.

Sonic Flash Engine[alpha] Sonic Flash Engine[alpha]

Rated 3 / 5 stars

pretty good!

well done on building this engine so far!
im going to state the obvious things that i feel need altering, not neccesarily bugs
firstly, obviously you need to make it so its either megadrive sonic, or gameboy sonic sprites, not both. (personally id prefer to see megadrive sonic just to differentiate it from ultimate flash sonic more ;) )
you could do with closing in the camera when sonic moves to the edges, its good that the camera isnt just fixed on sonic but it moves too much straight away, it would be good to have the camera slowly pushed that far to the sides when hes at maximum speed (if he has a maximum speed) but not when hes only just starting running.
gravity could do with decreasing a bit, so that he stays in the air at the peak for a bit longer
when you jump and change directions, the sprite changes to skidding

thats about all i could think of, i look forward to seeing this completed!

First off, thank you very much for the constructive review!

The sprite thing is a leftover, i do intend on using the megadrive sprites, the gba ones dont fit the feel of the engine at all. The camera has been a beast to deal with from day one, im planning on tweaking it to be more like the extended camera like the one used in Sonic CD.

Gravity, oh god... I made the mistake on not commenting my code when i started, ive been tweaking with with for two weeks :)

Speed is capped at 20 pixels advancing either way i plan on increasing the speed cap once i get the camera sorted out...


Know Your Tequila Know Your Tequila

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Where was the salt?

I couldn't see the salt so I couldn't answer that one correctly :(
Also, on the drag the ingredients into the blender one, I had it wrong but it only let me continue until I put the lime into it (as I had already put in the tequila) so I was just dragging them all in. ie, it didn't tell me I was incorrect when I dragged two bottles into it that weren't lime and tequila.
But yeah I like this quiz, as said before it 'wasn't just a reel of questions with buttons to click on', it was creative with asking the questions, and I liked that :)

Sorry, the salt is a bit hard to see. It is on topof the hand holding the lemon. With the blender question you are allowed to make 3 mistakes before you get it wrong.

Thanks for the feedback.


Platformer Game Maker v5 Platformer Game Maker v5

Rated 1 / 5 stars

You really need to test these games yourself

Theres such serious bugs. Obvious bugs. Test the game yourself before you submit yet another version.

It's been said countless times you dont need to submit a new version everytime you change a tiny part of the game, as your still lacking in many other areas.

Test the game yourself and you'll see whats been going wrong, and until you can create a FINISHED bug free game, you shouldnt submit again.

This may have been said before and you are yet to come to it like many other suggestions put forward each time you submit a "new version", but from version 1 i've always found it irritating how you move the character around in order to create the game in the first place, and having to put the character back to the beginning before testing your game. You've created a goal, now create a starting point. Use another method to scroll, something that moves faster too.

Now put some more time into version 6, go through the other reviews and answer to the suggestions, and make sure you are fully happy with the flash yourself before you submit another one.

Ok, I think I got all that, thanks for the big review!
It is a bug free game, look at the commentary...
