"The Best Years of my Life" is a game for two players, seated at one keyboard. Made in 48 hours for Mini LD #10.

Playing alone isn't recommended; the game won't make much sense if you do.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

very cool game...

...though it's only really worth playing through once. the point, i'm assuming, is that after a while, the wife completely controls the man's actions by berating him and constantly threatening to leave, making him do any and every arbitrary thing she commands when once they worked together in everything.

'tis sad. i hope it never happens to me.

...but yeah, i really enjoyed this. minimalist style with a whole lot of substance. hooray.

It was alright. The music was good and so where the levels. you could have put a few more levels in and I realy didnt understand the storyline. I liked the last level where the the only way to get all the dots it so kill off the guy. Also It needs lives or something like that.

Tip my hat...

Quite brilliant what you did there ;)

Shame this didn't receive any medals/front page, but then again, you didn't use any mario or sonic sprites...

I kinda agree with nersop.

I wouldn't have said so harshly but you certainly get away with a lot. I don't think you're latest submission is all that great. The gameplay was very simple even with two players, not to mention really short. The music was nice but if you were trying to convey the subtle tension of control between a man and a woman, the music was also useless for that purpose. Also, even for a game with an 8-bit look, I feel like the graphics could've been better. More complicated sprites or something. Some kind of sign of a major effort would've been nice really. I have a feeling that the controls getting switched up later on in the game was intended so I won't comment on that.

Now lets see how many negative votes I get because I gave an "artist" a bad review.
