Eh, I don't know. Doesn't have any ads, nor the glitzy polish I always see.

Plus I've never seen a shovelware site use the NG loader before.

Both reviews were on the same page. I don't think http://ericho.newgrounds.com/ would like his hard work as a reviewer being lifted like that.

Tigerkitty was kind enough to straighten this out with a bit of advice: if you flag something that isn't plainly abusive, PM a Review Mod and explain why. Still lost whistle points (haven't tagged a review in some time, and it went to garbage thanks to this incident).

Anyone remember the field that would pop-up when you hit the old abusive button? It had check marks for what in particular was wrong and an optional text field to describe WTF is up. This could be a potential bummer for the mods to wade through, but I really think this feature should be bought back.

That's already been posted here. It was temporarily removed but we've decided to republish it. Dress-up games are okay as long as they're not completely soulless and aren't simply re-skinned. That submission doesn't have the soulless feel most shovelware submissions have and it has an NG preloader that doesn't even have ads enabled.

It isn't something that was quickly thrown together for money, so it's okay.

I've always PMed review mods if it isn't obvious why it's abusive just to be safe.

This could be a potential bummer for the mods to wade through, but I really think this feature should be bought back.

I think that should be reimplemented and made so only people with a deity whistle could use it. I'm assuming they probably removed it because people who didn't want to type out why it was abusive either didn't bother flagging it or they typed random stuff.

I miss when you had to review each part of the flash like the art, music, etc.. but again, IIRC, that also had problems. Didn't you have to rate everything.. even if the submission didn't have it?

Everything else submitted looks like it's easily downloadable share/shovelware. I know this guy has had an account for quite some time but these all look rather dubious. I shall leave it in your capable hands.

It does appear that there will be on average around two snake games submitted a week that are simply made using an easy tutorial. I don't see why, if I made a snake game I certainly wouldn't think it was worth submitting even if I'd not used a tutorial, it's just the most done to death concept for a game.

As far as I have been told in the past, these are not allowed. Mostly since the company/group that created Angry Birds doesn't want anyone aside from themselves or people with special permission using the Angry Bird characters.

gamesgrow altt what a surprise not! that author sure is a annoying with flouting the rules. I'm hooked on the game Dark Souls I have gotten passed the Undead Asylum, but I cant make up my mind as to what class is best. I love the thief class but I'm having my ass kicked ,but I love that class. Maybe I need to use a better glass as a newbie to the game. I have got Dragon's Dogma not bad not sure about this new game yet.
