Cream Cream

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Pretty much a perfect snapshot of the "west" right now. Things were going well and then BAM, we're forced into chaos for pretty much no reason whatsoever. The environment being methodically destroyed when the world was going green, governments shoring up mass hysteria for more wars (likely WW3 very soon) when multiculturalism and peace was rampant....

... terrorism enabling, forced economic and medical crises etc. etc. etc. This pretty much sums all that up: from perfection to disaster in no time flat just because the elite want to keep their hands in every pot, and for the pot to keep boiling over into their pockets.

Road of the Dead 2 Road of the Dead 2

Rated 1 / 5 stars

This guy hates long and helpful reviews, so I'll get to the point for his sake: it's even worse than the original.

How did he even manage that?

Anyhow, this review's getting a little long.... here's a one out of sympathy.


Evil-Dog responds:

That's a pretty pathetic attempt to insult me....worse than...the original? You realize it's still in the top games of all time on newgrounds...right? That I won awards with it?
I like constructive criticism, not long opinions about why someone hates the game, if you don't like the overall design, it's not like I'll go "oh dear...let me change everything about the game to please you"
Now if you like the game but some things could be better, than I'm all ears, notice how the game is already at version 1.09? it's not like I'm just sitting on my ass, pondering about how great me and my games are. I'm WORKING on them, fixing what can be fixed to make it better and more fun.


Pork Must Arrive Pork Must Arrive

Rated 5 / 5 stars

An absolutely great, smartly done (for the most part) defense game. Definitely worth five stars, but there are still some problems, MAJOR ones...

{A WARNING TO THIS GAME'S CREATOR & REVIEWERS!!!}:

Even after only two pages of reviews, I think people are confused about the game's difficulty and this might tank the game score-wise. If possible, you need to find a way to make the yellow-circle abilities at the bottom of the skill trees more obvious as pivotal skills to those trees and thus the game (I suggest making them larger and DEFINITELY putting them at the top-middle of the trees... overlapping the rectangles a bit perhaps?.... or something like that).

I played about 3 times in the same mood as those saying it was too difficult before realizing the yellow skills (particularly "orc damage") were pivotal to the game... at least early on. At first I just put points into the +5% damage skill and was annoyed and thought it a pretty stupid design choice while watching my damage increase by a useless 1 each level. In retrospect, I appreciate the nuance of having both damage skills, though... but, again, THE YELLOW SKILLS ***NEED*** TO PLACED MORE OBVIOUSLY AS PIVOTAL SKILLS, as I'm assuming this is where most of the difficulty gripes are coming from.

{Misc. Praise}:

The skills remind me of Borderlands 2 with all the little optional niches and nuances (and mostly because of the "signature" ability of the golem placed above all the trees). The skills are interesting in how much they allow you to customize and *perhaps* require you to mix between the trees. However, the skills aren't very distinct from one another overall (mostly health +damage in varying amounts over and over under different skills) , but that's just a small issue of style/taste really.

Also, I like that there is even interesting variation in how you can handle combat: in rushing to get exp bags before they disappeared, I noticed you could time your way past spear-throwers, leap over knights (which was also an interesting way to try and flank them in combat), and even take a risk rushing behind the quick-striking melee units. Little things like this really help improve this gameplay.

{Small Gripes/Suggestions}:

Positioning the pig using the duck button early on is annoying and seems somewhat flawed: Once he's relatively close to you, you can't summon him directly on top of you, which makes positioning it around a golem annoying... and rectifying it by increasing the pig's attack distance is annoying as well since it gets locked behind you in this way significantly varying distances. Also, the pig's repetitive squeal if you hold the summon button down after he arrives is annoying as well.

Another gripe I have is also related to the unclear position of the yellow skills. Though I haven't tried these builds yet, it seems like the axe damage skill may be more necessary (or maybe even the only way) to survive the game early on, as compared to golem damage or pig damage.

Anyhow..... great game. Keep it up, I'd love to see more games like this from you in the future.



Alone in the Park Alone in the Park

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

It's an alright game. It's very one dimensional, just keep shooting... over and over and over at things that take more and more shots. One major problem with this, though, is that the controls are poorly thought out. You give a lot of options, but each has horrible flaws: specifically, using the mouse becomes impossible when you need to be mobile because of your placement of the Newgrounds logo, which ends the game (it minimizes and halts your controls --- glitched to a constant downward walk after that); second, the space bar is just terrible, you have to physically move to aim.. which means you just run into things.

Well, nice try anyway.

This song gives me thunder... in my socks.

What's that? Do you hear it? It's thunder - in my socks. That's right, this song actually made me dance from the thunder it gave my socks. As a karate expert I can't say anything bad about this song because it's awesome level is just too damn high.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Perfect

Very brilliant work. This piece can be on any given day either stunningly beautiful or deeply haunting. Something about those recurring pings that sound almost like water drops reminds me of either Mario 64 or Super Mario Galaxy music - and the babies reminded me a little bit of the ambient sound played at the abandoned playground early in Half-Life 2. But, yeah.. all that is pointless; this song is very magical... so I think I'll just close my eyes and keep listening.

Insanctuary responds:

I still don't see how those sounds are related to the mario games. I had somebody even send me the song it reminded him of, with a Youtube link. It sounds nothing alike. XD Half Life-2, I am not sure of. All of this song's art was originated by my mind only. I had no outside inspiration. Very glad you enjoyed this work of art. I am working hard to create another master art. It's kind of difficult.. I can't read music, and I get unlucky with a great soundscape that only sounds good only on one side, may it be headphones or without headphones. It crushes my inspiration alot. :P Thankyou for the review.

Very nice. Mass Effect and Inception with a little hint of Chrono Trigger? Well that's what I caught, with the chorusy sounds. Very nice emotional tune.

FarturAst: this is not stolen. They're just two completely separate studies (A.K.A. "renditions") of a famous artist's piece. If you look carefully at the original piece and both artist's versions you can see, even from a distance, that there are various noticeable differences in the brushwork.

Xenzo: here's a 5-star rating to help balance out the half-thought negative review below, and because for the most part you pulled of your study accurately. Not much else can be said for the content of the piece here anyway, really, since it is just a study.
