THIS IS NOT MADNESS!!!
THIS. IS. PAPERRRR!!!
Okay but seriously now. The animation was really fluid, I wasn't really feeling the comedy, and for something that's supposed to resemble paper mario it was a bit too 3D for my tastes, as I am a huge fan of the series. The sound effects were done nicely though and the fact it had an okay story compared to the mountains of crap that gets spewed from the vagina of NG everyday makes me a happy man.
A solid 8/10 you have garnered yourself.
Seen it already
On your last video, I gave you an 8/10. On this one, I'm dropping it to a 6 because of the fact that it's even shorter than the last one, and this time it was even more random.
However, the Cranky part made me chuckle a little bit.
Lemme give you an idea for a STORY, which is what this needs.
This is the world of Mariopia, where all the game characters rest after debuting in their latest games. (Change Mariopia to something better.) In this world there are the superstars of gaming (Mario, DK, Samus, Solid Snake, etc) and there are the lower echelons who wish to be in big games and become famous.
This series should chronicle the lives of the citizens of Mariopia as they go about their daily lives, when suddenly people from the lower Echelons revolt, attempting to take over the mass media frenzy.
Seriously man, please put enough work into this to make it a legit flash series, and not some half-baked idea that will never bear fruition. Give it a story for christ sake.
Oh my god that was fucking hilarious
Sounds - 10/TMI
ROFL Factor: 10/10!
I think the concept of the game is pretty good. I made it to the center in about 10 minutes, but therein lies the first problem, it's very short. In addition, I have no idea how I was supposed to win, so I just let myself get smashed and called it good :|
3.0 for concept and 0.5 for execution, 3.5 total.
I like the music. But, there are quite a few problems I have with it.
For one thing, whenever you eat an apple, you restart te length of your snake. This kind of defeats the entire purpose of snake, getting bigger and potentially ramming into your hugely enlarged body.
Next, the instant start from the title screen is annoying as fuck. Give me a 3 second startup timer, don't make the snake charge forward the instant I press start.
The constant constant CONSTANT shifting of small to large gameplay boards is not fun, it is annoying as shit. If it happened after every 4-7 apples eaten, fine. But not every goddamn apple.
Well, I've played the entire game and beaten it, took me about 20 hours total to get everything. (Except the epic and hard-mode only medals) This is quite significant, as I haven't played a flash game for more than an hour since Marduk 2 and 3. Not only did I just play this game, I couldn't put the damn thing dfown. I literally went without sleep for a whole night I was so intent on beating the game. I have a lot to commend you on, it's truly an amazing game, and the fact it's entirely in flash says omething about the flexibility of the platform. So first, I'll just get some complaints out of the way, and they are few and far between.
First off, those text boxes that appear at the top of a battle which you have to click, those are very annoying. Please, in the 4th game, add an option to disable them or make them automatically close themselves after 3 seconds or something.
Next, there were these enemies that scream a high pitched scream in the water map, they were just awful. Please refrain from putting high pitched noises like that in a game, I almost had a seizure.
The story for this game, contrary to what other people have said, feels sort of empty. It's bland (But funny!) and very generic. Then again, this is intended to be a parody RPG, but maybe ignore me. For the next game, if you would like help making a more... "full" story, send me a PM and I'd love to help you out.
The last two game segments, the ruins and the volcano seemed very short in comparison to the previous levels. I kinda thought you halfassed those when you compare them to the detail of the other levels. Then again you may have been on a deadline for this game and just rushed them out a bit too soon. In either case, I hope the next game holds levels that are just as long as the early levels in this game.
Also, the last boss was a little bit tedious, but hilariously it was the boss BEFORE the last boss that was the hardest in the game. I tell you man, I've beaten so many RPG's it's insane, and I've NEVER had as much trouble with a boss as I did that dragon. It took me 7 tries to beat the f**ker, and a total of 4 hours out of my 20 hour playtime. No joke. And I'm not even complaining, it was FUN. Please, keep doing good boss battles like that.
I love Halcyon's music, she's very good at what she does. Did you make all those animations yourself though? If possible, there's one single animation I could really use for my game and if you could PM me about it, I'd really appreciate it :)
Now, other things I wanted to bring up. I love the perfect balance you've made with the leveling system in this game. Unique recipes to forge every weapon, unique abilities and functions for every character, nothing is extraneous, everything can be used. The level 30 limit was perfect. I literally hit level 30 when I beat the dragon. I didn't have to tediously grind, and I wasn't OP at all. In fact, I was at the perfect balance for normal mode. Hard and Epic mode I'd assume are ridiculously hard in comparison (I shudder at the thought of going back and fighting that goddamn dragon on Epic difficulty xD) but normal mode strikes the perfect balance. I have to really commend that.
Artwork, did you make all the maps individually? Are you using a tileset you made or did you actually draw these maps out? They all have their own great look, the animations are utterly fantastic, etc etc. I've never written a review as long as this one (I'm actually running out of space xD) but this game is pretty freaking fantastic.
This says 'demo'. Got a full version? It's freaking great.
I've logged in every day for a week now just to rate this a 5. Best dubstep on the internet, quite possibly. Please make more.
Oh my god, this is possibly the most amazing transformation from 3 second SFX to a song remix I've ever heard, ever.
