When Stigg's class held a Health Fair, most of the kids brought healthy foods or exercise equipment. But not Stigg-- he brought free cake instead! Everyone knows cake isn't good for you, but it sure draws a crowd. Fortunately, Stigg has a secret weapon... the Veggie-Matic!

As you've probably guessed, this game is my entry to the Wiggi World contest! That means it's designed for kids aged 5-12. It needs to be clean, there needs to be a reasonably finite ammount of play-time, the first level needs to be do-able by tiny human-larve with developing reflexes, etc. etc. I tried to make the game as fun as I could, given these requirements.

I've written a lot of Flash reviews here at Newgrounds, but this is my first submission. Feel free to rip it apart-- I thrive on criticism. :)

Oh, also, I'd like to thank Erica Mendez and ShockDingo from the Voice Actors Alliance. I'm sorry I don't have a website for either of them but they can be reached at the VAA forum. Both of them came to my aid with auditions even though I posted with a ridiculously short deadline, and even better, they both managed to really nail the voices of characters I'd made up in my own head!

Edit: Woo-hoo! Daily 5th and Front Page? Thanks, guys! :D

Edit: Wow. It won. Just WOW. I mean, I hoped it would, and I did my best, but... WOW! :D

Awesome job

Wow dude, I just got a chance to play this and I love it, sorry it took me this long to get back to you. I really want to say congratulations on everything man! I'm really happy for you! It's hard to top what others said, but I'll let you know my thoughts. :) The art is crisp, clean, and clear; it really adds to the overall happy atmosphere. As others had mentioned about the AI it's great: it starts off simple so as to get a feel for beginners, but then it steadily increases without it becoming an onslaught. The controls were also very responsive. You, Erica and everyone else did an excellent job! I was honored to be part of this. All the best with the future man, and once again congratulations!

1463... And oww... feels like i've been having an intense fingerr wank.
I've gone to play this a few times to look at the WW submissions, but alas I gave up before it got good.

Very cool AI generation, after level 3 you had the difficulty level increase at a perfect rate for a standard gamer. It is very hard to get that part right and you did it perfectly.

Enjoy your $4000!

Oh, and Eggys's smells :P

Well, we won't know the winners until Tom gets around to posting them. I like to think I did my best, though. :)

The AI is actually pretty simple, they just make a beeline for the cake. I assume by "AI" you meant "gameplay."

And there's nothing wrong with Eggys's submission, Wiggi Rush. It's actually one of the cleanest action/platform implementations I've seen in Flash. I'm just not about to sit here and let him call my game violent. :) It's not a violent game.

Glad you liked it. :)

Maybe too hard for kids tho, my mousehand is sore... too many enemies on lvl 6!
still nice game, could be longer than 10 lvls tho, and upgrades would be nice!

WarpZone responds:

Lots of people tell me it'stoo easy, so your review gives me hope. :)

Sorry about the length and the lack of upgades... I was running out of time and this was the most gameplay I could squeeze out of it in 10 days.

Thanks for the review! :)

Contest Winner - At least it should be

The voice acting was great; I thought it was professional at first, perhaps taken from an outside source. The animation was very smooth and crisp.

The only problems I had were level 6+ ramped up WAY too quickly, and, of course, the gameplay was very repetitive. But then, I'm not 5-12.

All in all, you did a great job, even though the message was a little hackneyed negative adjective.

WarpZone responds:

Oh, I can assure you, the voice definitely IS professional voice acting. It was done by Erica Mendez and ShockDingo from the Voice Acting Alliance forums. You should definitely google the VAA if you need voice acting for any Flash projects. Please be polite, and take the time to learn their system of doing things, and I'm sure someone there will be able to provide you with results like these.

Repetitive gameplay stages 6+, I can understand. The difficulty ramping up too quickly, is kind of a surprise to me. The only real difference between 7 and 9 is the speed at which enemies run. Stage 6 always seems like such a bear, but actually there's 15 enemies on-screen at once that take 3 hits each, so it's not much different from Stage 4, which featured 4 enemies at once that took 3 hits each. It's just the large groups that make it seem a lot more challenging than it actually is.

As for the message, in the contest rules it said that games would be judged more favorably if they had a message. So as you mgiht immagine, I and everyone else who entered the contest, put a cheesy message in. I just did my best to have fun with it, and I think that helped a lot. :)
