The whole reason I made a Newgrounds account was to make a review for this series, well I guess also for the review of The Tale Teller the video. This game though, it is so freaking awesome. The entire series is like a bash on alien invasions, while being one of the best alien invasion series ever. I wouldn't dare say anything about this series that's bad. It is just too good. It is like pure gold. Can't wait to see this creator in his future endeavors and I can't wait to see what you all think. We love you Jack Astral, keep up the great work.
Thanks so, so much :)
This is an amazing game! I enjoyed playing them all, Sold me out with the cute art style and the story kept me going with the thrills and anticipation. Love the references and funny bits while the characters were chatting up a storm. though the quick time events were a little too repetitive but i had so much fun with the shooting part that it didn't bother me much. Looking forward to your next game, phantom reverse and I hope it'll be as exciting as this one :)
WAIT THAT THE END...
i cried so much...
:CCCCCCCCCCCC WHY THAT THE END???
Taking into account the entire series, I feel this episode was not terribly different from the rest, and overall it was underwhelming. The flashbacks were corny and everything that happened was beyond predictable. I did stick it out through every episode, but this was mainly due to the brevity of each episode rather than the quality of the VN. Was I expecting this to be Steins;Gate? No, but I WAS hoping for some element of choice or some plot element with a more serious commitment, either to its dramatic or comedic elements.
Some other minor gripes include the QTEs becoming longer and more tedious, as well as aliens literally stopping if they got close enough to you. Seriously? It also doesn't help that there are several points at which the characters even make note of the intentional vagueness of the plot, which works for an immediate comedic effect but fails to repair a broken story.
Points for decent artwork and a nice UI, but the substance just isn't here.
That's fair enough, it was mainly intended as just a dumb, hyper little thing. I tried to add a little more to it through Rey's character arc - going from someone who runs away, to someone who tries. There's some little tiny bits of depth I think dotted around the narrative, though that defs wasn't the focus.
Thanks for the constructive criticism - I'll look into improving in those aspects going forward :-)
