I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I thought at first that it wasn't going to be much, because it just seemed too plain. It really got better once you got the hang of it. I think the best part is how there are always different obstacles. You don't just do the same thing in the same level. I can tell someone as talented as Go0gley worked on this.

It is a pretty different game for him. I thought the music was so full of joy. I love how you don't die when you touch the side of the borders like you would in other games. It was a bit hard for me to understand it at first. I recommend this underappreciated game!

Annoying music, and mechanical game play...

Constant use of the "donkey call" sound - for every measure.
Inexperienced keyboard playing; in the wrong key at times, out of rhythm, and using a dated trumpet synth sound.
Plus, no key change at all. The seven repeating notes in the background will drive you mad.
It sounds like the song was an afterthought and just thrown together.
The game play wasn't any better really. The actions were stagnant and very mechanical. The goals were hard to accomplish because of that. The timing of the ladybug was always the same. I agree with another person, that the controls would have been more fun if they were done with the arrow keys instead of the mouse.
The artwork should go along with the theme of the lady bug. Making green squares appear and disappear is very mechanical. I should be more organic. How about logs, leaves, flowers, swamp land, etc. And you could even add some animations to them as well. Not just the sliding back and forth, but rolling logs, blooming flowers, etc. The idea was good, but it definitely can be expanded upon greatly. If you want to see some amazing organic styled, nature themed games, with incredible music, go to www.orisinal.com. This guy really understands this type of work.

Nikki's Rating

It was a pretty good game, but the controls were creative although frustrating. The music was good, but it got annoying after a while. It just need better controls.
