I kinda like how MJOLNIRchief90 put it.

It seems like a really deep game that makes you reflect on how life is lived, but really, it's just a game with a depressing plot that you can only play once. I see what you did there, but that doesn't make it less stupid. As it's been said before, good idea, bad execution.

Meh, it's ok

- To reset the game, you have to clear the data in flash storage (1) Search "settings manager website privacy settings" in Google. (2) Go to the first link. (3) In the settings panel, click on "Delete all sites" (or just the entry for uploads.newgrounds or something like that). You might also need to clear browser cache or browser cookies.

- The simple design is pretty good, and what's with that UFO, lol!

- I don't find persistent-state games to be innovative. This has been done before. The main reason I hate these games is that it allows developers to pretend that they can control whether you can even replay the game ("And you bastards will have to pry this game out of my cold dead hands before I put a replay feature in"). Of course they can't (see the above reset method).
- With that said, perma-death adds little gameplay value. The purpose of the game is for entertainment value. I suppose a perma-death can work well if the game is dramatic enough, but I don't think this game, which is built on simplicity, is dramatic enough to make it work.
- The character moves too slowly.

AwkwardSilenceGames responds:

It's not about the controlling of the players being able to replay the game. I've been fully aware through-out the entire design of the game that the cookie cant be deleted and the game restarted. I don't care at all how many times anyone plays it (it's flattering that people would go out of their way to play it again).

It's just that the whole concept of the game was "One Chance". Putting a retry button at the very end seems to just completely undermine the entire thing.

Thanks for the review though.
