I really enjoyed making this and I hope you enjoy it too.

Review it too, I'll respond.

Oh and if you want, please recommend this for the Newgrounds collection. Thanks. :)

Better than your average guide.

I played it, got 35, read the 'explanations', checked the max. score (50), then answered again, deciding that my reviews probably count as 'long' and that the RRC probably does 'succeed' at helping. Got 40.

This works both as an ego-boost for those of us who help out a bit and also as a tutorial for those who don't, getting them to consider things they could do differently when answering and spelling it out in the explanations.

However, spammers are still unlikely to pay heed.

Regardless, this was actually slightly fun - something I can't say about other tutorials or 'guides' - mainly thanks to the interactive questionnaire format.

I love the music. Classic NG.

Featured Item works well on any NG game. However, it's quite a decorative font - to improve readability, keepin 'Featured Item' to headers and titles, using a simple sans serif for the body text, would have worked well.

The instructions are specially hard to read - white against a light bg? - and the end rankings and 'explanation' text could have been better organised for readability.

Maybe with a simpler font, the end rankings could have been split up into a few rectangles with icons beside each and the explanation could have been squeezed in beside smaller options, without overlapping them (but of course, the options would be darkened).

The NG-style 'windows' also work well as does the starburst.

Besides a few typographical complaints and the fact that the music resets when we restart the quiz, I have no complaints. Good job.

Pretty basic, biased a bit

I'm an NG regular, have been for a few years. I registered about a year ago so I could post reviews. I don't post in the forums at all, and I don't submit content. So that makes me a lesser user? If I had to guess, I'd say the ratio of authors to general users is something like 1:100 or 1:10,000. I suppose I wouldn't attain "NG Legend" status that way, but I'm not posting spam reviews or passing spam content. Otherwise, it was just a "meh" quiz. Probably took a few hours to make, if that.

Sispri responds:

No, it took a couple of weeks.

I'm A Newgrounds Regular (27 Points)

I don't post in Newgrounds Fourms but I still know the right answers, you dont even need to have an account to Newgrounds to get a good score.

I also like how there wasn't that many questions, because I was gettin bored and I was going to close this. :]
