***UPDATE***: Fixed end roar bug and flip freeze bug
***UPDATE***: Dragable words now do not snap to the first letter!

You will probably die a few times. When dying, please do not leave a mess.

SECRET LEVELS ARE VERY DIFFICULT.
TARGET TIMES ARE VERY DIFFICULT.
You may want to wait until your second playthrough before subjecting yourself to their abuses. (Hit ESC to exit a secret level and go back to the level select)

This game uses the mouse and the keyboard. I recommend using a mouse as opposed to a touchpad or nub, especially if you're going for target times (which you are, of course).

You may, during the course of playing Uirdz, find yourself having fun. If so, please continue to play Uirdz and tell one person you love and one person you hate about it.

MAN, THIS IS SO REFRESHING.
I rushed through this game so easily i can't believe other people think it's hard. Feels good.

Okay review, well, you probably won't read this so technically i't wouldn't really matter. But here you go.
I think there are two things where you nailed it with this game. First, it's the concept. Quite original, and a nice way to combine platforming with puzzle elements. Adding new words to play with after some levels, and with others which had a really interesting idea.(Like the huge ****, or the triple bomb) Overall, you had cool levels, cool gameplay and you mixed them with a cool flow.

Now, the second thing, which is the true "way of winning", to say the least, it's the "pixel grid", where you place your words, and where the platforms are. Maybe it's just a way of cheating, and just to avoy errors while putting the words, but it added a whole new perspective to the platformer, where you would never just jump, drop or flip without knowing before hand if your placement of words was correct, making the puzzle part more interesting and the platforming part less annoying. (Like... How to flip without dying. How to fall from a block and get pass a group of spikes. Where the bomb would make most danger.) So, cool.

About the bad stuff. Well, too short... And.. That reminds me i still haven't beat the boss. What the hell are you supposed to do? I tried lots of things but i always end up dying.

Well, there you go, i wrote some stuff, hope you enjoyed it. Oh, yeah one last thing, when trapped by three blocks: above, below and side, you can STILL make a jump and rise. I remember a level where i thought you had to do this twice, but at the end of the level i had some words unused, so i guess i was supposed to just jump and those spaces where to put words...?

Ok, now i'm done. (¡And Cool music!)

First, thanks for the great review!

To answer your question about the boss, there's a moment where he leaves himself vulnerable; a carefully placed word may damage him then.

As for the level you were talking about, you are right; those are places to put words, but there may be a circumstance where you'd have to make one of those type of jumps...

I die in the "Gimme a break" level :'( I want the secret level!!!! I'ts a very addictive game ;)


paste42 responds:

There's a level later on where you can unlock that passage again (although it's very hard). The next time you try the GIMME A BREAK level, keep in mind there is a small trick you can do to pass through it without just trying to do a plain jump (you might want to experiment before you try to unlock it).

Great game, it reminds me of Super Meat Boy for its gameplay but you added a good twist with the words, wich makes you think as you move in the level. The final boss could be more creative but other than that, i enjoyed playing it. PS. A little hard to get the target times, but its possible ;-)

I really liked this game ! It has a really pleasant and responsive engine, and the word-dragging gimmick is a great way to incite multitasking. The difficulty was just right because I never felt my deaths were because of the controls/engine but entirely my fault, unlike some others like Super Meat Boy. If anything I thought some goals were actually too easy, like the two "FADE" levels and a few end-game target times.

Speaking of target times, I'm kind of surprised so many people find them "impossible". Yes, they are hard, but they aren't the sort of thing you should expect to try and beat on the first try ; if you keep trying, the shortest route for each level will eventually become obvious. The levels are short, so there aren't THAT many possible ways to beat them. I got to admit moving while dragging the words at the same time takes a bit of practice though, but nothing "impossible".

I talked about what's the most important of any game for me, but everything else is also pretty neat. The general flavor of the game is quite funny and the music pretty catchy. I'm not a very big fan of the graphics because that "retro" style had been kind of overdone to me but it "gets the job done", haha.

So yeah overall I think this is a great game, so good job paste. Also for those guys who think it's even possible to 100% the game, well I did, so hah !

This is way too hard, target times are like impossible! Also dragging words is just stupid. And AWD as controls is not a good thing. Either make them customizable or change them. And those graphics, they are just horrible. Next time you make a game, put more effort in it, and make it possible to gain all medals. Sorry if this sounds rude, but I just say what this is.
