Reviews for "Wooper's Adventure"

I had to come back here, one last time...
It's crazy to me that I never actually made a Newgrounds account until now, I used to play so many games here as a kid, but I never really messed with the site other than for playing games.
I don't know if you'll get to read this, but I hope you will since it seems you're reading what others have written here recently too. I just wanted to say, thank you.
I think it speaks volumes when after so many years, this game still sticks out in my mind as such an special experience, sure, it's short and could use some polishing here and there, but I honestly don't even care about that, I love this game so much, and it means so much to me that I had to come play it one last time before Flash dies.
So once again, I just want to say thank you, this short little game really means a lot to me and it seems that it means a lot to other people as well, I'm glad about that.
I've been following Flashpoint, and I have to say, I'm really happy that so many of these games are going to be preserved with it, however, it really made me sad when I tried to find Wooper's Adventure on the game list Flashpoint offers, and as far as I can tell, it seems like it's nowhere to be found...
Because of that, I just wanted to say that I hope you still keep this game, and it would make me so happy if you could allow others to download it as well, I would love to preserve this little memory that reminds me so much of my time growing up as a kid playing your game and many others like it.

I don't want to make this any longer that it already is, but I just wanted to add that after reading some of your replies to other people, I'm surprised to hear that you made this game as a kid, that makes it even more special.
And now that it seems you're pursuing game design as a career, with planning to launch a game on Steam, I want to wish you luck with that, I would love to try whatever it is you're making as well.

And with all of that said, I think it's fitting to end this off by wishing you and anyone else reading this a happy new year, and thank you for all the memories, if this is really the end and Wooper's Adventure is going to disappear, I'm going to miss it so much, but I'm so glad that I played it when I did. Hearing that music once again gave me chills, I haven't forgotten that tune in all of these years...

Farewell, Wooper's Adventure...

OrangePylon responds:

First of all: don't worry! Even if Newgrounds doesn't archive it, I do still have copies of the .swf file that I can preserve in some other way.

Secondly: thank you! This was obviously a treat to read and it really reminds me of how many people my content can reach without me ever knowing how much it means to them. I was a kid when I made this (freshly 14 and barely starting 8th grade on release -- possibly similar to your situation when you were playing it), so I never fathomed at the time that it would one day be considered "nostalgic" to so many people. Seeing the weird recent influx of reviewers claiming just that really warms my heart and fills me with hope that my current projects will one day be remembered even more fondly.

If it weren't for all of you speaking up recently and letting me know what Wooper's Adventure meant to you, I would look back on this game as an artist and only be able to see the dated memes, stolen art, and chimpanzee code. But now I guess I am kind of proud of what I was able to put together at 13-14. Guess it pays to respond to every review for 12 years.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane,

Oh my god... I'm home

Been going back and revisiting all my childhood Flash games and this one made me nearly die of nostalgia. Had the dumbest smile on my face as soon as I heard the music and seeing that first level almost made me tear up. What's funny is that I was too young to pay any attention to the storyline so letting all the silly dialogue sink in for the first time is... quite the experience. Very charming little game and I hope you're still holding up well after all these years.

OrangePylon responds:

What a sweet review! Thank you so much. People telling me they feel nostalgia for Wooper's Adventure recently is such an experience for me because I was a kid myself when I made it. It holds nostalgia value for me as well. I'm glad the 12-year-old meme dialogue held up for you, because it certainly dates it for me, haha.

I'm still doing game dev; I'm actually working on a Pokémon-inspired, monster-taming roguelike right now that should be releasing on Steam in a few months. You can find out more about it on my profile. Thanks again for the review!

This game is so nostalgic. I remember playing it years ago when I was little. I don't get the Wynaut part tho.

OrangePylon responds:

For some reason when I was young, I riddled my projects with inside jokes and memes that were only popular at the time. I never thought that one day people would reflect back on it as something nostalgic (which is so nice to hear by the way!), so it didn't end up very timeless. Thanks for the review!

I remember this game. This is so nostalgia. I especially like the music. What game is it from?

OrangePylon responds:

Glad to provide nostalgia! The music for the most part isn't from anything specific. It's showing off some of the talented original artists from Newgrounds' very own Audio Portal.

I played this game as a child... playing this brings a tear to my eye.

OrangePylon responds:

I MADE this game as a child. You're gonna get me goin'! :( Thanks for the review!
