It's a good game with wondrous artwork. It's rare to see a game where such a small colour palette can detail a game so well. Apart from that, it's a bit of a slow game, but that's the meaning of it. Yeah, it can get repetitive, but replay value is in this game, you just need to understand it. Upgrades are costy, but I guess that's the tax, huh?
Nice-looking game... sadly it's incredibly boring and repetitious. Upgrades cost way too much and weren't really what I would call "upgrades"... they were more like bare necessities to play the game on a basic level. The jump upgrades were ridiculous... a little higher, now just a tad higher... yay. The only 2 upgrades that were warranted IMO were the butt drop and the Anti-Grav which were needlessly split into 3 separate upgrades. The game should have started with most of these already in place... and instead had fun upgrades that enhance the gameplay (instead of taking it from unplayable to playable) like a double-jump, a dash... maybe a weapon and some enemies thrown in here and there.
Basically, I feel this game's a complete waste of time... by the time (hours) you get enough upgrades to actually play, you're already sick to death of it & there's nothing to look forward to.
Pretty addicting game once you got Butt Drop.. Give it 4 stars for its high quality graphic and great music. Couple things need to be improved:
1. the game should be able to pause if mouse if moved away. I'm getting pretty tired after several runs.
2. After you click "Continue", you are back to the main screen instead restart the game..? why?
3. as I stated earlier, the game gets fun after you got Butt Drop, but i think you need to run more than 15 times to get that upgraded.. which, I almost quite play.
Music and graphics are both very good. The problem I have is that it just gets tedious and dull after a short time.
The game starts out involving very little skill and after a few runs its the same every time. Maybe it would have gotten better after the higher upgrades but once I realized that it would take me like 10 repetitive runs to get the orbs for the next upgrade I just dropped it. Seemed like a lot of non-fun to have to do to get by for possible fun down the road.
The gameplay is amazing, it reminded me of Epic Coaster, another great flash here in Newgrounds, the platforms where the robot jumps looks like the tracks on that game, the soundtrack is also cool (could you tell me the name of the songs which play in the main menu/workshop and during the game run?), its challenge is overall enough to make this game addictive. Favorited! 5/5 & 10/10
Thanks for the feedback!
The soundtrack is all original (I believe, will double check with the sound guy).
