Ok, took way longer than need be and went through lots of editing but it's finally here.

Unfortunately, we're stuck using WAV files to put music on our games, which makes the music A LOT bigger than mp3 files. This meant that the main song, which I could not find a good enough (and small enough) replacement for took up about 8 mb out of the 10 available to me. That means I had to edit the song and make it smaller to fit and take out the other two songs I wanted in here. I tried my best but until Multimedia Fusion 2 lets me use mp3 files, I'm stuck with stupidly large music files to work with.

I really do hope you all enjoy this game. It can be difficult, I know. My boss couldn't beat it until I made the bugs slower, among other edits. Hard mode is probably the closest to what it first was. It definitly deserves the title of hard. I hope the directions are clear enough for everyone.

But I digress, SX3Production proudly presents Venus Fly Trap.

With all the crap we had to go through with this games audio and font, effort points are needed =D

good idea but...

havent seen a game like this here yet but some things really got to me
1. the music a way to turn it off would be great as it got annoying quick
2. i couldnt read the intructions very well(bad font,bad color used, and a bit small
3. it was almost impossible to tell the bimbs and not bombs apart
4. in medium there were more bonuses than in easy(didnt try hard)
5. the contol buttons were too close maybe 1 and 2, 9 and 0 would have worked better.

hope you consider this next time you make a game. i know i cant programm for my life but i can try to help at least

SX3Penguo responds:

I completely understand what you're saying.
1. We talked about the music and agreed that if they didn't like the music, they could turn their speakers off.
2. The instructions are annoying but I thought it would look worse boxed in. I wasn't sure what to do with it but I tried my best to make it legible.
3. I'm not sure if I agree with you there. The ant was the hardest to differentiate between but the others were quite obvious. Maybe study the difference before playinng.
4. On the different levels of difficutly, I added more to make it more difficult. That's the way it was supposed to be.
5. Yes, the controls could be better. I'm learning as I work on games and I hopefully will improve greatly with my next release.

I really appreciate this review. There are some things I can't really fix. For example, since I have to use WAV files, the song took up so much room, we had to cut parts out of it and it was still the only song we could put into the game. I hate how mmf2 does this to us but hopefully clickteam will update soon and fix this problem.

As I said before, this is a wondeful review and I appreciate it greatly. Hopefully I can at least get an 8 out of you next time and will improve with my future game ideas.
