Hey just uploading a small betting game I did for a school project, tell me what you think! :)

There's not much for sound, it wasnt an outcome and I was running short on time so I had to rush it.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Could use some work

I thought people would be realistic on speed, but it went 4 races for Lamb Chops...followed by I forget who and I lost all money. Needs a better betting system (quarter-half-full? really?). Should race against people OTHER than the other characters, the running animations need some work, and the track should be much longer if they're going to be that large of people.

For a basic betting game, it works....I guess....

Not too bad, needs some work.

Not bad at all for a school project. This is one of your typical "bet on a guy and hope he wins" games. It's a pretty good and rather simple choice for a school project.

Let's start with the positives. It's colourful, nicely drawn, and it is clear you thought about your characters when you created them. You include their likes, dislikes, etc. and it's nice to just have some background about them, in order to make informed decisions on who you're going to use. Well done.

But then there's a few negatives. The game is short, especially with the seemingly random nature of the races' outcomes, and there is no REPLAY button. While not necessary, the game does end quickly, and such a feature would be appreciated. Again, I have to address the issue of the random race outcomes. I do not know if you programmed the game to include some form of probability, but it really is essential. Otherwise, the game just includes picking a character and hoping he wins, with no expectations.

So let me end with this: You have artistic talent, and the animation was smooth, but you need to focus on the core gameplay element, because it just wasn't really there. Keep trying! Newgrounds needs more people with potential like you!
