Reviews for "Johnny Deep"

the game

i liked it but it becomes boring after some minutes

Very enjoyable

I had a lot of fun playing this game, unlike other people I thought the fact that you turned slowly made it more fun; you had to be focused and react quickly to avoid enemies/get bonuses. Also thought the upgrades were good, could use a few more possibly but can't really think of anything that was missing.

Only one problem I noticed. When my character got deeper, past 500m, it sometimes wouldn't let me shoot the harpoons. I'd hit the spacebar and nothing would happen. Just thought I'd point it out in case it's a recurring problem.

Apart from that, very good job. Thankyou


This is a really nice game. I really liked, that you could control your characters movements.
First I had problems with turning, but it got easier for me as I gained speed upgrades!
Anyway, when I reached the region of depht between 500m and 1000 meters, I have had everything maxed out, and got a cash overflow.
I think you should do something about this. More upgrades, or make them a bith more expensive, or both. The amount that the gold bonuses give is to great I think, they shouldn't worth this much.

I love this genre and this game!

Seriously, I love games like this. I have had tons of fun with this game, despite its few flaws. I liked that you actually had control over your character, unlike most others in the genre. What I didn't like, however, was that turning was such a pain, and the hit detection on the mines was pretty buggy. Even with those two problems, I still give this game a 9/10.

I also loved the sound effects/music, and the graphics. I can't wait to see a sequel. I hope you take the criticism to heart, and make the best game on newgrounds! :)

Thanks for the review. Regarding the turning issue we didn't want it to be too easy, after all it is swimming. Regarding the bomb issue, can you PM me what exactly you mean? Thanks

Felt Like I wasn't in control

For the most part this was a great game, but it had the same problem that most games of this type have, you don't have enough control.

When diving, I would see health and coins and oxygen, but because I can turn so little I couldn't get to them. Additionally, if there were mines in the way I had to wait for them to pass (read drown). To follow up on professor flashes comment about always having to press down, I think that if you could swim sideways, but cold only do so when not decending, that this would make for a much better game.

Well, in most distance you can't control your character at all. Anyway we deliberately didn't want swimming to be too easy, like real life,we tried to make the game fun and yet challenging :)
