**WARNING: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS**
Finally completed the game. This might be the only flash game I've completed all the way through. The whole game was enjoyable, although there were a lot of moments when I felt like punching a hole through a wall, especially while trying to get target times. The boss fight took me awhile to figure out, but I eventually got it. After realizing how to do it, I felt extremely stupid. Anyways, I'm going to break the game down or something.
The graphics in this game were fairly basic, it kept me focused on trying to get the level completed instead of getting caught up in how beautiful the game looked. I think the graphics actually worked quite well with the style of game you were going for. The music was fantastic as well, the switch in music from Level 7 to 8 (I think) was somewhat surprising and matched the theme of the game quite well.
The puzzles were well thought out. Looking back on it, the filler levels were quite obvious, but I was so immersed in the game that I never really noticed them. The game gave you a few filler levels before giving you something new and interesting to work with.
The final boss was fun, but somewhat disappointing. I feel like you could have incorporated more elements and made the boss fight last longer. While it took awhile to complete the boss itself, the total boss battle fight was less than a minute. If you could have added flips, ups, rights, etc. it would have made the whole fight a lot more enjoyable.
There's one glitch that I haven't seen mentioned yet. When you place a word right before you die, the word is placed anyways. When you run in the platform with the boss, he stops what he's doing and tries to stomp on you. I thought you were supposed to place a bomb behind him at this point, and since the game let me place a bomb there, I thought if I timed it just right, I could hit him. I spent about five minutes before I finally realized that what I had discovered was a glitch.
I've played this game for a few hours and still haven't completed all the target times or found all the secret levels. There's so much stuff to do!
Ultimately, despite any things that I found negative, this game is so amazing that I think it deserves five stars. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I hope to see another puzzle game from you soon!
(P.S Loved the ending!)
Good game,nice difficulty but overall, GET IT A E RATING MAAAAAAAN!!!!
MAN, THIS IS SO REFRESHING.
I rushed through this game so easily i can't believe other people think it's hard. Feels good.
Okay review, well, you probably won't read this so technically i't wouldn't really matter. But here you go.
I think there are two things where you nailed it with this game. First, it's the concept. Quite original, and a nice way to combine platforming with puzzle elements. Adding new words to play with after some levels, and with others which had a really interesting idea.(Like the huge ****, or the triple bomb) Overall, you had cool levels, cool gameplay and you mixed them with a cool flow.
Now, the second thing, which is the true "way of winning", to say the least, it's the "pixel grid", where you place your words, and where the platforms are. Maybe it's just a way of cheating, and just to avoy errors while putting the words, but it added a whole new perspective to the platformer, where you would never just jump, drop or flip without knowing before hand if your placement of words was correct, making the puzzle part more interesting and the platforming part less annoying. (Like... How to flip without dying. How to fall from a block and get pass a group of spikes. Where the bomb would make most danger.) So, cool.
About the bad stuff. Well, too short... And.. That reminds me i still haven't beat the boss. What the hell are you supposed to do? I tried lots of things but i always end up dying.
Well, there you go, i wrote some stuff, hope you enjoyed it. Oh, yeah one last thing, when trapped by three blocks: above, below and side, you can STILL make a jump and rise. I remember a level where i thought you had to do this twice, but at the end of the level i had some words unused, so i guess i was supposed to just jump and those spaces where to put words...?
Ok, now i'm done. (Â¡And Cool music!)
First, thanks for the great review!
To answer your question about the boss, there's a moment where he leaves himself vulnerable; a carefully placed word may damage him then.
As for the level you were talking about, you are right; those are places to put words, but there may be a circumstance where you'd have to make one of those type of jumps...
