Reviews for "!!THE PACER!!"

I wonder...

...if the author is going to write me too..bc..if he doesnt ..well..then i would just feel left out...but i liked the game..just to hard for me.

MrManiacMan responds:

Ha, Ha! I just pulled an all-nighter on the final Phoenix Wright game, witch I suggest you play if you haven't, and I stroll over to my computer to find that "The Pacer" has landed me another perfect ten! WHOOOOOO! I feel great at the moment, how about you? Seriously, if you liked this just wait for July 13, that is when the sequel for "The Pacer" is coming out. Don't forget to check out my page before the end of this month because I'm working on my best game to date, and it WILL be released before the end of this month!
(It would be pretty sad if I didn't considering it only took me 2.5 days to make this, lol.)
Anyway, I take pride in responding to ALL-O-MAH-REVIEWS regardless of subject matter, oh wait; I still haven't responded to some Egg-Splosion reviews now that I think of it, that was a LOOOOOOONNNG time ago.
Anyway, thanks for the 10/10 and (assumed) 5/5! Great way to start my day! Yes, I'm a morning and night person. :D
Sincerely, MrManiacMan.

LOL awesome

i got high score on tut lol 1000 higher then last meh

MrManiacMan responds:

Ha, Ha, glad to hear that you enjoyed my "awesome" game!
Not really too much else to say, but thanks for the review!
Sincerely, MrManiacMan


lol this game should be called the sprinter instead. Awesome game and a bit too difficult for me atm. Interesting levels and good pace, though having such a low turning speed makes it kinda of annoying. I only finished a few levels before i quit, though that means try upon try. Great job and would be a bit more playable if it wasnt so hard. I agree that none of the levels are impossible, though playing flashgames, i dont have the time to master the controls. Great job and pleese post if yo make any new games, this one, despite the difficulty, was great

MrManiacMan responds:

LOL, you just named the sequel! Anyway, I just named the game after my inspiration for it, The Pacer, an exercise we sometimes do in gym class. Funny thing is I actually did submit another game, but it scored very, VERY low causing me to yank it before it could mare my NG record. Also, don't be looking for a sequel to this game any time soon because I'm currently working on a very ambitious project at the moment, but it holds many elements from my previous games.
Thanks for the review, feel free to give me any suggestions on how to tone down difficulty in the future!
Sincerely, MrManiacMan.

Great Game!!!!!!!!!!!

Good job on the game. I wonder if you made another one cause im going to check it out. If you dont then please make another one. On another note on the other "reviews" or basically comments this is not a hard or easy game. Its in the middle like normal. Great choice in difficulty.

MrManiacMan responds:

Yay, you brought my review average score back up to 7.5! No, I have not yet made a second, but just for you there will be a second one. Really, I'm just thrilled that someone actually thought my difficulty was average.
Thank you for this awesome review, now I'm going to go pass out, over there...
Sincerely, MrManiacMan.

Need help

It's always like the time is not sufficient for next checkpoint. It's extremely difficult to drive through a narrow path with low turning speed. There seems to be a bug in the game, which is you always bounce back when you hit the side of the track, thus slowing down the car greatly. To achieve victory you have to be very good at this, but there's a big gap of difficulty level between tutorial and wetland, tutorial is just too easy and wetland turns to be really hard all of a sudden.
Anyways, I enjoyed the concepts and the design, this is still a cool game to play. Please consider the ideas and make a sequel, if possible.
7/10 4/5

MrManiacMan responds:

So you say you need help? Well, you got it!
First off, there is more then enough time to reach each checkpoint, and every level is beatable. I've personally witnessed others beat every level. Also, the hardest level on time is Primary Road.
Second, if you are running out of time it is because you are afraid to run into walls, the best way to get through a tight turn, like the Wet Lands, is to just hold "The gas" down and hold the direction in witch you want to turn. You may hit the wall a few times but it's not like you lose any health, unless it's a laser wall. Also, keep in mind that letting off of the gas will allow you to "Drift" for a short amount of time, that may be a better solution then just randomly running into walls, but slower.
Third, when you hit a wall you bounce backwards, because all I did was multiply your current speed by negative one. It doesn't matter how you hit a wall you will only bounce backwards; you can use this to your advantage actually. Meaning, that is not a bug; however, there is one that can help you time wise.
Fourth, if you ever play this game again just focus on beating the high score and best time for Laser Complex; if you can beat them, you'll unlock my personal favorite level Dodge Dodge R. While I'm on the subject of high scores and best times, to unlock the final level all you have to do is beat the other four unlockable levels. In other words, don't waste your time trying to beat the best time and high score for them.
Finally, I love hard games, and I really need to tone difficulty down a bit. The only reason why there is a tutorial level is because most people don't read the instructions, so there were originally eight levels. Yes I will eventually make the sequel for this game, but right now I'm making Egg-Splosion 2. That should be done by this Sunday, so, if anything, atleast try out that game and tell me if the difficulty level is better.
Thank you very much for the 4/5!
Sincerely, MrManiacMan.
