Hahahah

Technically, it's not very good, however, it made me laugh.
The animation needs some fluency as well as certain object seem cut so they lack either lines or even whole pieces of body.

Not bad

There could be more things happening simultaneously, though.

Laser Battle Laser Battle

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Okay, the gameplay is actually a little different than the original Pong. I see, the ball doesn't disappear when someone scores a goal. On the one hand, it's a great solution since it makes the game more dynamic, without waiting until the new ball is shot. On the other hand, I was a little afraid to give big speed to the ball since I knew, it would return to me after getting a point. Still, I like this idea.
What I don't like is the fact that there seems not to be any sound - it's worse than the original which actually had some sound effects. Also, what the game really lacks is multiplayer - it would be awesome to play with a friend since the AI opponent isn't well... very intelligent (yes, I know, this would require changing the controls).
Nothing more to say... nice try but like you've written... nothing really fresh.



Gravity Box Gravity Box

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Mmm... Not much to say... The general concept is awesome and it has potential to draw attention. However, I was hoping for something more than just a few levels. The game is awfully short - it ends before it gets chance to become harder or more complex. I believe, it needs at least five times more levels than it actually has. Nice try, though.
Btw, I like its minimalistic graphics and the way they work with music :)



Chick Survival Chick Survival

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

My first impression about the game was quite neat - good music and very pretty illustrations. Even the plot is not that bad compared to other games about the zombie. However, the gameplay itself isn't this nice. First, the graphics - the main heroine and her animation look terrible, no anatomy, no grace (and she's said to be beautiful!). The stage music is not that bad but it completely doesn't fit - I'd rather see this kind of soundtrack in a pet simulator or kind of this.
Now, the gameplay itself - well, my main thoughts about this are that the main character is so slow that she could be a zombie as well. Also, it takes forever for her basic attack to launch and fire which can be very frustrating (however, I have an impression like there was no launch time when I was jumping... strange). In addition to this, the power spheres didn't always deal damage even when they actually hit the foe - something must be wrong with collision detection. This thing was especially annoying when I was fighting the skulls. It's like it was a matter of luck whether I hit them or not. On the other hand, it's good that the game favors some strategy. Simple running towards an enemy and shooting leads to certain death. Teleport was very useful but the ice shield doesn't seem to do much. In fact, it only slows the gameplay since I can't shoot through it as well. As for the special attack, I don't get why it's actually weaker than regular one. In most of cases using it was simple waste of magic energy. I think, it needs to become stronger to make it sensible to be called SPECIAL attack.
As for the enemies, well... no intelligence at all, but it's understandable, after all, they're zombie. However, it's quite irritating when they spawn just behind my back or... exactly in the place where I've just teleported. Furthermore, once, I had managed to hit a foe before it even became visible - that's a little bit bizarre. The bosses seem not to be more clever than the fodder. While the first one was relatively forgivable (though simple walking towards my character all the time isn't what a major threat should act like), the second guy was just stupid. What's the point of creating floating platforms on the boss stage if he can't even jump on them? This level design made an awesome opportunity for camping.
Another important thing - how do I return to the main menu? Right now, it seems, the only sensible way to do this is to kill myself three times.
I also found a few minor glitches. Once, I fell and died, then teleported and I was still alive. I wrote about some spawning issues before, so I won't repeat myself.
Overall, the game looks like a beta, not like a final product - it's playable but character slowness and spawn glitches make it frustrating. Before you make some new chapters I suggest correcting the existing ones.

Dark Flight Dark Flight

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Nice, but still needs some improvements

I kind of like this track - it's very varied, so it doesn't get boring to listen. The things I especially like, are drums in the beginning and pitch-changing notes.
Nonetheless, I still believe, this music needs work - the bass is rather slightly audible (and the song just asks for strong one) and the drums become less interesting after the beginning - they take away the whole power from the music.

Very nice, though simple

Very simple bass and drums combined with a melody which would make a good music for children song. Good job (even though I don't think, it wasn't a big effort to do it).


satyre responds:

Thanks for the review.

Yes, it was meant to be played in an childish environment.
For the effort: I worked 1-2 hours for this, and i think its pretty much work. I'am not a pro at composing music, so thanks for the high score :)

It's not ambitious

I can notice, this took such a short amount of time. The same sound set repeating over and over again is tiring. However, there are some minor add-ones which save the song from being just bad.

Nice design

I really love those sleeves and scarf. However, the clothes could be more detailed since now, they seem simple.
The face has weird expression - I think, you would be able to change it by making the pupils bigger.
All in all, the design still looks good.

Touching

There's something moving in the picture.
Even though the colours seem to be a little pale, I still like the highlighting. The background is not very ambitious, but it fits to the picture.

Interesting

I really like the manner, the background is made. It resembles Space photos to me. Also, the shadow composes well with the whole pic (even though it's hard to state how such a construction can keep standing). As for the idea of the pic, it's not very special, but it's kind of rare one.
In general, it's a nice piece of art.

Thanks~ I was going for that. ^__^
