Reviews for "Misadventure"

This game is pretty creepy. I like that! Hope to see more from you!

Never thought that I would see something like this made again and that's not in a bad way either. I love seeing games like this, just shows that some still like it old school. Certain parts i would somewhat fix like the final boss was pretty predictable and you just had to stay on the sides to win. Another would be when you had to race through the area with the, I would like to say it was the third, green alien hovering at the top and you barely got enough time. The controls sometimes felt smooth but there were also times when it felt like your character just slid. The art on the background was nice and I barely noticed the life counter. It was a great play and I would like to see more of your work, keep it up!

haha loved it, great game. pretty original i think


Amazing. I loved the monsters. You were really creative on making us find ways to get past them. Like the giant thing that blinks when you're moving, and the black spider that shifts behind walls. It was like being in a horror movie. I also loved everything you did with the tv and background, adding a realistic feel to it.

There was one thing that threw me off, and I love it now that I figured it out. In the black room with the moving static block, the shuffling noise made me think there was another monster somewhere. So, to get the medal for killing everything, I spent forever trying to stab outside the static before just giving up. It was a bit unorthodox to wait until the end to tell me if I killed them all yet. Just another thing to mess with people, I assume.

Music was great, sound was excellent, theme gets two thumbs up, originality was outstanding. The fact alone that the demons shifted from blocky atari graphics to more defined demonic creatures not only played into the storyline, but was to me unheard of until now. And, frankly, I enjoyed the original Adventure and have it, which only served to sweeten the game.

Thank you for putting so much effort into this.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful review! The blinking monster is actually my favorite -- I thought it was the best use of an actual old school quirk (blinking sprites) as a challenge to figure out.
