But I cant play past level one due to massive controller lag, the controls take effect about 5 seconds after i push the button, giving me no reaction time. So i play a lot of "good games of golf"
Gamebo Fan Approved!
I have been playing Gameboy games for years and I still have my Gameboy original with an original copies of Tetris and LoZ; Links Awakening. So when I say this does classic Gameboy games justice you can be sure I know what I'm talking about.
I found this game quite easy but still very enjoyable and its light-hearted, humourous style was nicely pulled off.
Gameplay, soundtrack and graphics all good. Overall a good game; So that 10/10 from me.
1 major complaint...
When you have to input the code(s) to deactivate the "Lazer Wall" you only get half the amount of time you need. That unnecessary time restraint made me discontinue playing;I am not the fastest typist and that part really started to piss me off. As of now you get 3/5 and 6/10. Fix that issue and perhaps add another weapon or two and I would happily give you a greater score.
its a awesome history, and is awesome how to play, the bot, CREATIVE MEDALS... its great and awesome! its impossible say the sensation (AGAIN >:()(sorry, its because i say this in a looong time...)!! its absolutly AWESOME! its that because i do 10/10! MY NAME IS BLOCKLIR!
Fantastic Artistry, Not-So-Fantastic Game
Technically, this game is amazing. You couldn't have done a better job making a tribute to "Gameboy" than you did in this flash. Great graphics, both the in-game and the frame around the game. Fantastic attention to detail, with the battery indicator and the on-off button for instance. The sound, game effects and music, were all first rate. Based on the artistic achievement alone, this would be a prime example of a flash that deserves at "10".
But this is a game at its core, and that's where this flash loses a few points. There are elements of the game that do not make sense. For instance, making the asteroid field playable, when it's nothing more than a cut scene to the next level, was annoying the second time around. It should just be a cut screen so you can get on to the next maze. And the mazes were the other main criticism I have with the game. There really isn't much variety to them. The third maze didn't seem any different to me than the first maze. And since enemies don't respawn unless you die, I found myself in one situation where I had to stop and figure out how to kill myself. When you have to do that within a game, it's not a good thing.
By the time I got to the third level, I found myself bored because there wasn't anything new. I felt like I was still on the first level and it was just arranged differently. This is fine for a game like Ms. Pac Man, where the object is to best your high score. But for a game like this, where the object is to complete it, the game feels more like a chore than a fun pastime.
I wavered between a 7 and 8. I decided to go with a 7 because I had the same issues with the controls being a little bit iffy that some other reviewers had, so I know it wasn't just my hands being tired after working with a chainsaw for 7 hours. The effort you put in was outstanding. Should you do another flash game like this, put a bit more into making the game a challenge for the player; change it up enough to make the player want to finish it.
