Play this.

Now complain here.

Truly a game in the loosest sense of the term. Not since Tic Tac Toe, and it's insufferable draws have I found a game to be this shoddy in design.

Besides the programmer seemingly rushing this through, and not caring much about an alpha nor any playtesting, the game boasts stupid difficulty. Now, to understand, this is different from hard difficulty which requires proper skill to play. But Jonas! He directly states this is a twitch reflex game! He says its meant to wring 'or' balls. Indeed, however, I offer a counter opinion.

This game programmer failed all levels of his game design class, and has a hard on for Devil May Cry, this does not give him a license to make a sloppy homage rivaling the worst the Portal has to offer, in misunderstanding both difficulty and design attempting to pass off the failings of both as

Let's go through a laundry list of issues with the game together!

Starting the game is a small pain in of itself, as the story presents itself in a click and drag fashion for both the text, and the comic page for each chapter. The text runs off the page, forcing the user to drag back and forth to read complete sentences. Huh? Why is the author merely just not using a scroll box at this point? The comic is a black and white hodge podge of mediocre art, poor writing, and poor layout.

The story it tells in general seems to fall near the same universe as Devil May Cry, however, it's not over the top stylish, it's under the table buffoonery. Imagine if you will, all the actors of a local comedy troupe are told to mimic an action movie as poorly as possibly, and afterwards, attempt to write how they felt in a dramatic plot twisting story. That thought you just had is twenty times better than what we are dealing with here.

Instead of going the simpler route of having a slide show, it's obvious the author is attempting to multitask, and bring us into his world through his various comic pages which he also drew. Perhaps he fancies himself an artist in that sense, because he clutters up the page letting us know that he did the art right under the box. On top of this, he used the text input portion of flash, causing the text to shake when the grabbed and moved. Fantastic.

We have an art portal. We have really good artists. Team up with them and produce a clickable comic page of your drawings at that point. It seems though, our intrepid author didn't have the time, or merely couldn't be bothered to ask others about what the game's output was like before releasing it.
Instead, it was harried into the wild, full of bugs, glitches, and terrible game play.

Brilliant move making the weapon that is unlockable just skip back to frame 1 during cycle through, instead of actually caring enough to code in a proper unlock.

Honestly, I could drone for hours about how piss poor this game is, and how it would be decent if it were an Alpha, but ultimately, I'll let you guys bitch about it here.

BLAH.

We have an art portal?

I do not like how un-intuitive the controls are. I think any instances up up/down should be reversed. For example, run+up should be for running up the walls, not run+down.

An art portal is going to be made soon I think.
And I think there is going to be some other portal (Mystery portal. :x) or something that will come, but I have no idea.

That was excruciatingly terrible.

I think the author realized how poorly made his game was, and decided to just play on the "LOL WE MADE IT HARD" thing to cover his ass.

You know, I truely wanted to try playing the game for how it was meant, and attempted to run in, and melee everything. 5 minutes later I had been killed easily. A few tries later, I decided screw it, and run around using melee. 15 later, I finally gave up as it was taking forever, and decided to screw the medals, no newgrounds feature was worth playing that game for another second.
Long story short, the combos are iffy, the controls are awkward, and to top it off, the author is saying "Lol, it's supposed to be hard!! The challenge has nothing to do with a crappy twitchy controls that make the game niether a frantic button masher or a fighting game that actually involves strategy!"

Shitty game, I'm not even going to TRY to get the medals.
Can NON ACTION games get some medals too?!

It's not the worst game on Newgrounds, but it doesn't deserve medals. Unless one of the medals is 'Played for more than 2 minutes and/or passed the first fight without realising this is a shitfest'.

Wow, you really despise this game don't you? I personally don't exactly find it great, but its better then some of the stuff that appears on the flash portal, so you can't complain that much, right?

But, i really think its a disgrace of a copy of Devil May Cry...

Well it's not like he has devoted his life to pleasing you assholes.He has a job and such you know, he doesn't just sit around wank to porn like oh so many of us do.And besides he will probably try to fix some of the shit he screwed up.

I know the game isn't all that it can be, and yes there is a whole bunch of shit thats wrong with it. Maybe he's uploading it so we can give him feedback, that or he rushed it for fame.

He obviously was hoping the medals would over shadow the messy game play. Its a disgraceful act that will get him a lot of views and a quick burst of notoriety. But as more games begin to use medals, this game will surly fall to the wayside and never remembered nor played to terribly much.

Yeah there are ton of glitches and you've named almost all of them. You can even jump and keep pressing the melee button to fly while hitting the air (or your enemies, which is a glitchy way to kill them while building style points).

BTW Jonas, you should write that in a review, when some other people (luckily the author) will read it.

Response to Official FUI2 is terrible thread. 2009-03-14 10:39:47


my major issues are:

the enemies take far too long to kill, and unless you're using you're swords special moves, the sword is preatty much worthless.

the animation is choppy, for lack of a better word, the cloaked guys just sort of...float around.

the sucicide bombers and extra strong cloaked guys just add to much difficulty, its not challenging, its just stupid. you shouldn't have to shit on me to be hard.

the art is very messy and jagged, making for a very unappealing look.

my movements feel very restricted , if you can't scroll accross the screen you should be able to move in a 3rd dimmension. like in Portal defenders or Dad n' Me for example. or atleast throw in some extra platforms for me to jump on.

but not everything about this game is bad, theres still alot of potential for it.

the gothic evil scenery is really cool, the Devil May Cry influence is very apparant.

and when you do get the combos working, its kinda fun, though its pain to attacked while doing them easily, AND IT WILL HAPPEN.

i don't wanna be too mean to this game, it seems like alot of work and love was put into it, and there still many things that can saved about it.

still, its a lump of cole. it has some diamond shards poking out, but its still cole until its squeezed hard enough.

i give a 2/5.

I don't think I'm being a dick. Being a dick would be saying its the worst game ever and should be blammed.
Dude this game should not have medals. We both know this.

agreed, the medals aren't a tool to show that the game is great. They are a way to give extra enjoyment and playability to the game. Its just with this case the core game is flawed, so the medals are really there for anyone who wishes to trudge through the game and get stats...

Fornoreason said it better than i ever could.

on another note:

i don't mind if a game is challanging, but this is just shit-on-you difficult.

shitting on me is tipping the odds against me and doing cheap and unfair things, rather then being difficult for core gameplay. like those bombers.

Exactly. Games like this shouldn't have medals. People like myself, Elios, and Gooch want to get lots of medals and points. When there is a game that is just to hard and has no fun at all we can't get the points and medals we want. I don't want the points and medals just given to me but I want to be at least possible to get them!

This game is exactly like the first one, except the enemies hit harder, and the achievements are dangled way to high up for us to reach.
