This is the first in a series of short Skears games which should take around 1 minute to complete. However, you can then access a bonus level by getting high enough scores on all the levels.

Basically, touching purple skears within 1 second of one another will increase the multiplier, which is the number of points you get for subsequent purple skears. However, if you press the left mouse button or fail to touh a purple skear for over a second, the multiplier falls back to 1.

As always, any comments are much appreciated.

nice game

i have been playing every game on newgrounds that has a score of 4.00 or higher in order of them coming out and im glad your games are better then the first 3 you put on newgrounds they where kinda crappy with spelling and grammar. i hope you have more like these after this and there really is no point in answering that questions as i probably won't read the reply


AcidDimensions responds:

An interesting decision. Hope you enjoy the games you play!

I had intentionally terrible spelling in only 4 games.

I'd really love to hear some criticisms of even these games though - I know they aren't perfect and would be interested to know what irks you.

And hearing some specific praise is always great. ;-)

Anyways, thanks for leaving feedback.

Stay funky!

um...

Overall it was ok.
Simple but nerve racking a times.
Somewhat challenging.
And hopefuly the next one will be way better.


AcidDimensions responds:

Glad you liked it.

Let me know what you thought of skears DX.

Way to short.

This game is definatley way to short, and to be honest I don't understand how these submissions get 4+ scores continuously. Nontheless, you need to improve the graphics and make the text fairly pleasent to the eye. Maybe put all these submissions in one. Another so so submission.


AcidDimensions responds:

I think it got 3.2ish when it first passed judgement.

High scores on submissions this old means nothing and in this case is the result of upvoting by various people.

Though you may not have enjoyed this, I'm confident you'll love the upcoming edition.

Ahh

It's a small game indeed, but a great timewaster. Short yet filled with content. Still think you could have put all the games in one file though. Anyhow, keep up the good work!

-cd-


AcidDimensions responds:

But if I put them all into one file, folk wouldn't be able to play them in 5-minute bursts! Also, it'd be less fun to make as I'd have to do it all as one big project rather than being broken up!

*snore*

Yeh, touch the purple, avoid the red... very average idea to begin with, and the only thing that saved this game from being utterly crap was the little multiplier, which simply made you want to avoid leaving a lengthy gap between when you hit the next purple square.
This game was very basic, with dodgey in-game instructions (must have taken around 3 minutes to make everything but the actionscripting), along with no sound and very bad graphics.
The scoring system was decent, but it was far too plain to be considered anywhere near 'good'.

+++: specific crit.

: (must have taken around 3 minutes to make everything but the actionscripting),

---: either unnecessary sarcasm and exaggeration or a failure to understand that it takes longer than that to design a level. (For the record, each Mini Skears game took one or two 'days'. By which I mean it took between 2 and 10 hours. Probably closer to the former. I know that's longer than it should have taken, but 3 minutes... c'mon.)

: along with no sound and very bad graphics.

+: criticism

: The scoring system was decent, but it was far too plain to be considered anywhere near 'good'.

Ah! An elaboration on how good you considered the scoring system! You took the implicit-ness and made it explicit, removing any doubt.

+++++: telling me EXACTLY how good you think a particular (the best in your opinion) aspect was.
++: the humour derived from your leaving this until the end
+++: suitability for an ending.

con.crit.: 7 (could be more specific)
telling me your experience: 1 (I think you should have told me if you got the bonus levels on your first go or at all. I realise from later reviews the former is probably true, but I think it should have been addressed here.)
praise: 4

clarity: 9
elaboration: 5
