Reviews for "Insecto-smash"

This game is intense! It provides a very simple goal for the player: to score as many points within 60+ seconds. What could be better than making a game about swatting flying pests?

There are many factors in this game which get my adrenaline running quickly, such as extending the time limit by 5 seconds every 2,000 points and getting helpful temporary powerups from random killstreaks. These bonuses motivate me to play harder and stretch out a single game as long as possible.

The overall gameplay was short and satisfying. It's a simple arcade-style game that requires pure skill, not repetitive, time-consuming tasks (i.e. experience or money farming) to upgrade the player's performance. I'm not sure if I'm exaggerating, but this is the most genuine fun I've had on Newgrounds for quite some time. The fast-paced action literally raised my heart rate temporarily. I guess you could say this game helps people exercise.

This game could use a few additional features, such as a high score table and possibly a rare insect that gives you a multiplier bonus, say, a giant hornet for example. In real life, they have very strong armor which is described as impenetrable, so they should require multiple hits to squash. This might also make it easier to acquire some of the more difficult medals.

Newgrounds needs more games like this, and you've proved you have the power to give Newgrounds those necessary games.

Wow this might be the most in-depth review I've ever gotten. I really appreciate what you said here. My friends have really embraced this game and think it's very addictive and fun. I'm really glad that you felt the same.
Bees and wasps already take more than one hit, although a giant hornet does sound interesting as another insect.
I mentioned in the description that this was made for a website. It will have a highscore list there. I simply removed all that for this version.
Thank you for the warm review! Newgrounds needs more reviewers like you!

Very minimal spam-click game. I think you should have a background rather than the white stage.

RockLou responds:

Maybe, maybe.

Nice! I don't feel my time wasted. The fact is that the one annoying mosquito is flying around me that moment and all the attempts to kill it were failed. So I have really enjoyed smashing them in this game!

RockLou responds:

haha, I'm glad you took enjoyment out of killing my simulated mosquitos! Next time I hope you manage to kill the real ones.

I give the game a 2 because it's boring, doesn't have a background, doesn't have any purpose besides smashing bugs without any upgrades, and doesn't have any music. Also, it can give you a case of carpal tunnel if you try.

RockLou responds:

Fair enough.
