*looks below at the troll* Y'know. .. they say don't feed the trolls, but this guy has voiced a very specific bit of stupidity. . . . Undertaker21. . . . oy
Graphics do not make a game great. . . Pac-Man had the 'worst' graphics of its time. It was a game that was using 2-frame sprites, and a wire maze, when everything else was using, 10, or 15 frame sprites.
How many of those other games are remembered today?
I think undertaker just thinks its crap 'cause he sucks at jump-puzzles. . . .
Holy mother of Half-life gumballs!
Great game man. Great game. I've taken to using this as a warm up to playing first person shooters now. . . Any way I could get a exe version of it to install or something? Would be awsome to have cause when I go to lan competitions they disconnect the internet. :P I managed to get to 13 before I poofed the last time. I sneezed and that did me in. Heh.
Seriously, that was good. By far the best 'date' sim on the site. Creative twist on the typical mechanics, the art coulda been a bit better, but it was really good as it is. And the ending, man, I laughed for 15 mins. It was well worth the time I spent to get to it. Of course, I woulda said that the time was well spent anywhoo cause I got to beat up on emo's, and neo-nazi's.
Tip, max intelligence quickly, then strength/charm. Int lets you lay the BLAM down on the emo's. Before the game was over, I was screaming stuff like 'Kame! Hame! HAAAA!' and 'Fatality' and such at my computer. Ah, but I degress, I had to much fun I think.
One of the few dress-ups where the object is not to see how fast you can get the girl nude. xD Good job with the concept, the music was a great choice, fit way better than the heavy-metal quite a few would have tried to put in instead. (heavy metal is fine and all, but, it grates against the ears, and doesn't tend to do a good job at setting any other mood than, head-banging adrenalin rush, or pain, depending on your music tastes.)
overall, good one.
This, is a great game. Pretty much all the good comments you see in the reviews, are true. Normally, with a sentiment of feeling like that, I wouldn't bother to review, however, This review is primarily to serve as a notice that Mr. Ebaum has posted this on his site as well. I for cripes sake hope yeh didn't give the guy permission, cause, he doesn't deserve this, and my inclination is that its been swiped.
Respect. Gotta respect that, dunno much about action-scripting, but, if some of the other folks here (cough cough IIPhase - corpses of the III Reich - to be mercelessly blammed) were able to code something so smoothly, the whole world would be a better place. All my 5 are belong to this.
The way you controll the character, was, at best, klunky. Playing the game, just didn't feel smooth, there is so much more you could have done to improve it. The sound was ok, for mood setting, except, the kid. The little kid doing the chanting, wasn't 'scary' it was annoying. You want scary ambience? Check out Half-Life, Doom, Wolfenstein, Castlevenia, Fear. (esp that last one) Also, the most pathetic attempt at scaring the player, was the most obvious, the random dead-face pop-ups. Some people are jumpy, others aren't, but, no matter who's playing, or whether they are jumpy or arent', the faces, just detract from the game. Tighten up the interface, the controll set-up was great, just didn't feel right when playing with it (not smooth, just, ugh, find some way to make it smoother, talk to the guys who made games like ThingThing, or Chaos, or Tom and them who made Alien Homined, those are good examples of smooth interfacing) Also. . . . maybe look for a better story. Castle Wolfenstein kinda drove the whole third reich dead-zombie thing into the ground, as well as countless b horror movies.
The best part of this game, is easily the open source mode. heh, though, I must admit, my primary reason for reviewing this game was to get the guy putting up an unrelated link off of the most recent review spot.
