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

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.

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.

BrokenVoice responds:

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

You Have To Burn The Rope You Have To Burn The Rope

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I understand that its just a jokey game

..and I like that, but it needs more.. It's just such an anti-climax when you win.
Just 2 more levels of different bosses (with different things to burn or other piss easy ways to defeat them) would have helped stop this game being so frustratingly short.

Rated 3 / 5 stars


its kinda too easy to carry on til forever on this game, so the game ended for me when my phone rang.. which is a bit of a flaw in a game where you try to get the highest distance if you can just keep your distance going by keeping low and constantly using the fanta bottle boosts that you pick up as you go

Its not a stolen game, stolen idea, stolen concept

It's a FLASH REMAKE. The concept behind the other games being thrown about by other reviewers have been reproduced in an entirely different format, which has allowed the type of game to be more widely available.
Also, most of these games that I have been able to find are only prototypes... and so the author has managed to complete what the others haven't, and into a flash game.
By stating that this game is stolen and should be removed, or is cheap or amateurish of the author to "copy" ideas, the whole video game remake collection ( /videogameremakes) should receive similar criticism, which is like claiming something like Ultimate Flash Sonic as cheap and stolen.

*sigh* Ok, moving on.

This game is greatly interactive, theres so many different ways to complete the levels and the only way to try these different ways is to think up what else you can do, and then draw it, which I love. I love games which are based solely on your input, like the line racer thing games or whatever they're called.
I feel the game needs some kind of touch up in places such as the menu and the appearance of the levels.. in some levels its difficult to tell the difference between objects and background. The weird fluffy texture isn't always practical on some of levels for example, for precision with the level of the ground or whatever.
Overall, great game. Looking forward to sequel with more levels and different game types (so please consider doing one).

Party animal :)

Some obscure questions, I wonder how reliable this quiz is.. Yet my result was probably most true to me.
I guess the questions which you think "I don't want to answer with either of these" you just need to answer the one which is not the one you think "it's really not that one".. which is how you will show what type you are.
..I think..

Brilliant series

I love these games, just about hard enough and the commentary is rather entertaining too :P

But I've just hit a problem!
During the "lag" level I used the key things to make the stairs.. got onto the black cross thing.. got the key to get onto the next bit while in the black cross (I do hope your following this ok) but then fell.. woops. After this I was stuck. I could shift under the first steps I had made and climb them.. but as the key thing had swung round for me to get onto the next bit (not expecting me to be able to fall down such a short jump :P) it was now in the way for me to be able to jump back and so I couldn't get back onto the black cross to continue :/
There was no way to kill myself to reset it.. and so I lost the decent time I had :(
I'm pretty sure I cant get out of this.. you may want to re-create what I've done if you think your levels are fool-proof (hi, your fool is here :/) as I may be missing something.

Either way, a suicide button would be handy.

But yeah, love the games :D

What actually counts as the tower falling over?

Because it seems to think its fallen over for no apparent reason for me, I'd like to know how I can avoid this.
Other than the problems I'm having (probably because im trying to create too much obscure buildings) this is a decent game :)

VoidSkipper responds:

I keep getting reports of this glitch, but I've been completely unable to recreate it myself. I'm very sorry I haven't been able to fix it, but I can't even see it happening to figure out what's causing it.

PALADIN: the Game PALADIN: the Game

Rated 3 / 5 stars

So far

I see this game has great potential. However the practice with the dogs is the most badly judged part of this game at this point. Ok so its a kid with a stick fighting zombie dogs.. but that doesnt meant he has to attack that slowly! Why is there such a blatent gap between a swipe and a swoosh? I don't understand how that can be called a combo when its not really combined, its separate attacks with gaps in which you are competly vulnerable..
Ok so the combo speed is probably about to improve.. but until then i cant actually kill these dogs efficiently without just kicking them to and through.. and then dying with the two dogs at once and starting all over again.

I know people will think this rating is unfair as i havnt finished playing the game yet, but this is a major flaw.

Il hold my vote until I complete it.

-Great graphics and story, good potential
