Although the world habits dangers of violence and gore,
a young child's task is mostly to play
and to explore.
-FESTERWOOD PROVERB

The job of a mother involves knowing when to hold your child back from the dangers of the world, and making sure the child can handle himself when he becomes too old for you to keep him.

INSTRUCTIONS:
+ Use the mouse to control the mother.
+ You can keep your tiny child near your home protecting him from danger.
+ Letting your child explore alone allows him to gain experience and eventually be able to handle himself.

A mediocre first try

A cute little idea with a very bad execution.
Things I learned from this game:

- Opposite from what common legend tells, mothers will not fight bears for the safety or their children. Or bats, or spiders, or bunnies. They will stay close to home while the child goes off into the woods.
- It's useless to try to direct your child towards character building activities because his pathing is on random-walk.
- When you use the play() command you damn well put a stop() command elsewhere otherwise your game will endleslly loop between loading, title and game screens.

If you think I'm being harsh, the bears farther off the jungle will be even harsher.

This works well in theory

But the way you have done it, the game just doesn't work. I normally love art games, because they give off an actual message. I understand the message you were probably trying to convey was "The more you keep your child from the outside world, the more it hurts them in the end when they have to go out there." Thing is, what your game is conveying is "Unless you baby your kid, he will die, unless he is extremely lucky."

Not to mention all of the damn bugs. The few times I could actually do well (not to mention the ONE time I got the sword and the ONE time I got the fountain) the game reset.

This review is pretty useless anyways. If I remember right, you're the guy who thinks his games are perfect and never changes them because everyone else is wrong and you are right. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's you.

!!!

Decent concept and I like the pixel graphics. Unfortunately there is not nearly enough control in this game, it's almost a simple non-interactive simulator. The mother also moves a hair to slow to be of any use raising a child. And there is just about enough AI for the kid to live past 21 in 1 out of 1,000,000 games.

Sooooo

this is a nice game, GREAT consept.
But yes there are some big bugs so i will take off two stars for that.
But the main problem i have with this game is the complet smack in the face the player gets from this game.
You spend an iratatingly long time keeping the kid safe and keeping distence at the same time to help him level up nicly.
Just to have the (no offence) extramly stupid fuction of random movment make him walk off to an enemy to strong for him, he will take some damage and get past it, but then, the smack in the face, the random function makes him tern around go make to the weird blob and start walking over it, again and again and again, and hes dead, and he rarly even picks up a single item and only killed some rabbits and bears, this happend to me 5 out of 6 times.
Its due to the horibly stupid and lazy choise of picking a random function for the movment that terns this game from great to complet and utter shit.
Thanks.

Sigh

This is just stupid, it's not even much a game. You sit down watch your kid run off and die, you can only really prevent him when he's like little. Had neat music though.
