the remediation of pain


Rated 4 / 5 stars

if you are going to keep the insta death on there at least make everything illuminated. good concept. has great potential

thrgriffin responds:

Thank you very much, at some point in the near future I'll be starting an improved version. Insta death will be the first thing to go!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I like the game, but there are some flaws. One I kept trying too look past was the fact that it is an instant death, and you don't even get any indication you died. All it does is ask for a level code, then plop you back down.

thrgriffin responds:

I hadn't actually noticed that! Whoops! Would it be worth me amending this and adding a health bar also? As someone who liked it, I'd be interested to know if you think I should do some more work on this or just start fresh? Thanks =]


Rated 2 / 5 stars

Kinda slow-paced. If you hold down the button, it doesn't shoot repeatedly...I mean, maybe that's not a BUG, but it's not how you'd expect things to work if you've played a lot of other games like this. It's annoying that you only have one 'health'. In fact, it might even be impossible to finish the first level, but I didn't care enough to try very hard.

Also...Why Henry Jenkins? Are you upset that he left MIT or something?

Hi, thank you for your review. I thought that having a reload time between shots would add difficulty but the consensus so far seems to be that it's just annoying! A health bar would have been a very good idea in retrospect!

This was part of a university module on new media (I study film, hence why this isn't a much better game). For the module we had to study a lot of Henry Jenkins and I thought this would be a fun take on the assignment. I have a lot of love for HJ though.

It's so buggy, and the reload is too long. Work on it bud.

thrgriffin responds:

The long reload time was meant to be part of the challenge! I will work on trying to increase the performance of my next game if there is one, thank you =]
