As always, touch purple skears and avoid red ones. This time, there are 2 bonus levels and again they must be accessed by getting good enough scores.

Once you've got the hang of how the scoring system works, you should be able to manage.

Each time you touch a purple skear, the timer goes to 12 and the mutliplier goes up, but if you let the timer run down to 0, the multiplier drops back down.

As always, reviews are really appreciated.

Nice!

It's a great game! Great concept and smooth gameplay to go with it. The graphics are pretty nice too, and you managed to fit everything in a tiny file as well. Looking forward to future editions! Keep goin!

Thanks for the positive reviews! I'm surprised you like these graphics, but hopefully you'll prefer the upcoming version...

Stay funky.

No better.

This game is damn-near identical to the first 'mini skears' game. In argument, you could say that you changed the in-game layout a bit and gave the random numbers some form of discription and put them in the corners of the screen, but apart from that this game is still very boring. Shitty graphics, the same old font (which was no good to begin with), no audio and borderline gameplay. This game really needed some snazzing up... the bonus rounds gave me no pleasure at all - they were just two more levels to this sub-par game.

: No better.

++++: concisely conveys thoughts

: This game is damn-near identical to the first 'mini skears' game.

+++: elaborates on opening summary

: In argument, you could say that you changed the in-game layout a bit and gave the random numbers some form of discription and put them in the corners of the screen,

++++: caveat

-----: I'm not sure if by 'in-game layout' you mean the level-design (arrangement of skears) or the arrangement of stats and numbers.

: but apart from that this game is still very boring.

-----: I'm gonna have to assume this is totally wrong. It gives the idea that you consider the just-mentioned aspects NOT very boring - just everything else. I'm gonna assume you just find the whole thing dull.

: this game is still very boring.

+++: comparative crit. which doubles as being for other submission

: Shitty graphics,

+: crit

-: could have elaborated or gotten more specific

: the same old font (which was no good to begin with),

+++: specific crit.
+++: You point out it applies to other game too.

: no audio

: and borderline gameplay.

+: con.crit.

-: I think the phrase 'borderline gameplay' is kinda mean.

: This game really needed some snazzing up...

+++: summary

: the bonus rounds gave me no pleasure at all - they were just two more levels to this sub-par game.

+++: letting me know you got them
--: I have to just assume you got them first time.
+++++: helping me realise just how much you disliked the game.

Not bad

It's only four levels so its really easy to beat, and none of the levels are really that challenging. Not nearly the best skears game. It needed some more levels and some more challenge.


AcidDimensions responds:

This review could use a little bit of praise.

I like the way you've expressed a fair bit in few words.

Elaboration and maybe a little bit about your experience (obviously you didn't get the targets...) would have further improved the review.

5/10

review of your review:

Apart from the review title, this is all about your personal experience. It's nice to read. More would be nice though. Many of my previous comments apply here again.

You do seem to consistently make typos. Normally it doesn't obscure your meaning, but I think you could look at the screen whilst typing and take a few seconds to change your words.

I don't want to discourage you from reviewing my stuff though as I enjoy reading your reviews.

This one's your worst so far but remains OK. Try to give maybe one criticism and one positive point if you can.

Though as they're similar games, I can imagine you might run out of things to say...

5/10

Maybe I'm too serious a person?

not too good.

i didnt like it.i have no idea why lol.srry.


AcidDimensions responds:

This review really isn't very helpful at all.

You don't like it. That's all you've told me.

Also, if you genuinely didn't like it, surely it should get less than a 5?

Whilst I appreciate you might have difficulty trying to work out what you don't like, I'm sure you could think of something, had you put some thought into it.

Consider the elements you're rating.

Graphics. Were they so bad as to affect your experience? Was the lack of sound a terrible thing?

(I know now - of course - that it was but you could have realised at the time, it seems to me.)

Was it the simplicity of the game? The levels? The rules that weren't to your liking?

Being able to look at anything and make at least one specific criticism and one specific positive point is a good skill to learn. It helps you if you ever want to do something creative yourself and it helps you in other ways.

In future, consider that a challenge. One positive point, once criticism (both positive. Also, a quick summary of your opinion.

Good luck if you choose to improve your reviews.

I'd give this one 1/10.

(I'm vaguely amused by it and your tone does at least seem nice and friendly.)
