You have 60 seconds to live a life 75 years. How will you spend your short time on earth? Will you strive for success, search for love, hang out with your friends or take time for your hobbies?

It's been a while since I submitted a game to NG, I hope you will enjoy this little something :)

Edit: Yay, frontpage! Thank you NG!

Edit 2:

If the controls don't work at all, please click on the game screen first. An update that fixes this issue is on its way, but it needs to be approved by NG first.

Other than that - the arrow keys need to be held down. Once you get older, your avatar moves slower and the keys need to be held down for a little longer to make him move.

Button tapping pointless, keeping button pressed super effective.

I hope this clears some things up, I guess it wasn't as intuitive as I thought (sorry about that, i guess).

Not bad

The game isn't bad overall, but it has some major issues...

The idea to have you 'hold' the arrow key as he gets older I think was horrible, especially when you're expected to make precise movements to certain locations to get items - it's not precision controls, so it's just awkward and feels broken. Even if you do use the controls correctly, you slide instead of click over which is the feel you want for a column based game, so that right there was just a bad decision.

The combo medal is totally possible, but in no way easy. I eventually hit 15 combos in a game, but it's based upon luck. Some games I got every single combo but there wasn't even 14 combos to be had...Not only that, but you have to be pretty accurate to actually pull off one of these combos, let alone 14 in a row. Your timing and method has to be pretty much perfect.

This is also much the same for the obsession medal. There were games I played where it just wasn't possible to get that kind of multiplier because the pieces you collect fall at random without structure. All the other game medals seemed appropriate and were clever. I just wish you had structured the way those items fall so that it's possible to achieve anything in any game.

The drawings are great, and the menus are full functional. The high score table doesn't seem to work on NG, but I wasn't too upset about that, personally.

The music was a tasteful IDM track and I enjoyed it. The animations of the character getting older, and having a story at the end based upon the items that you collected was a nice touch indeed - not to mention Facebook compatibility. It seems like you filled in all the gaps there, so I congratulate you on that.

OVERALL:
Overall a decent little game to burn time with and get some medal points, but I think the games biggest drawback is the awkward controls. Nonetheless, keep up the good work.

thanks for a very constructive review.

about the luck factor - there are some luck-regulating mechanics in place, but I didn't wanted to regulate it too much. if you decide to go e.g. for success, but the opportunities aren't there, well, tough luck. if no matter how hard you try, you can't get many combos, or an x multiplier, just because you don't get the opportunities, there's nothing you can do about it. life isn't fair either. some people are more lucky than others. difference being you don't get to reflect on your life or redo afterwards (unless of course there is such a thing as an afterlife or rebirth)

cool game i like it

i liked the game and the concept but the controls can be sticky sometimes.

a couple of times i would hit the arrow a couple times and fly across the screen and others not move at all. I understood that you move faster when your younger and slower when your older but it got to the point where i would tab the arrow as fast as i could and only move once over a 10 year span around 40-50 yrs of age.

Due to the issue there is no way to get all of the achievements i got everyone but the 14 combos which after playing several times and hitting as many combos as i could i got 10 at best.

I liked the game but the controls need work

Can spend some time.

NIce game, it is fun, but not addicting, nothing that you play for hours and hours.
