Reviews for "Going Down"

kinda dumb

i did the idea of the game. i think you should of tried to bring another animator in on the project if the animations were better i would have gone five stars.

I love how every way you end the game it all ends bad. Haha. I would like checkpoints though. It gets aggravating having to go back and do the entire game again.

I'm grateful a game developer such as yourself, has the guts to be so open about his work. From my own experience, the best learning comes from watching/playing all your work, every so often. Ride the road you built, as you would have others do.

The quiz-to-sex idea is spot on, nothing like smart sex to justify the time spent playing... but the sex animation itself, looks like 3 frames dissolving into one another, to appear animated: it just doesn't look good.

Also, if you re-enter any of the rooms after you've beaten one of the 4 quiz-sets, you have to take the whole quiz all over again, and complete from that point :\ Traditionally, you get a scene of text asking if you want to play the sex scene again, or continue on.

Anytime you fail, you should only fail that room or scene.. I failed the last cracky lady (second to last question may be incorrect) and got knocked all the way back to press start! Not motivated to go through all that again, sorry.

If you could improve on the animation and programming of this piece, I'd be happy to play the re-submitted version.

I'll agree with the others. The replaying takes away from the fun of the game, but I like the effort you put into this (I'm guessing this is what you were referring in that message. The link didn't work). Your drawing skills are getting better, though they can sometimes be inconsistent, where the women will go from being super attractive to becoming a little fatter or wider or they're eyes are farther apart. Still, you definitely showed your versatility in skills with the four demon women. I did find a few other problems with the game that I'll list
- When you quickly click through the beginning audio between the demon guy and main character, sometimes the audio doesn't skip and it will play overtop of each other (was this the audio issues you were referring to?)
- One of the last groups of questions says what is not a usual way to celebrate Christmas. I think you meant what is a usual way.

I have two personal complaints. I don't really like the scenes where the guy's having sex with the girls, but this just my personal preference. Also, someone below commented on the plot of the game. It kind of reminded me of how my friends describe porn videos with them being corny and unrealistic. I know the running joke your using, but after you've played the first 3 quiz games, the joke gets old.
How about having some tough questions, like on programming to make it more up your alley. Or you could have a find the object game in a house where each one you bring back, the women strip for you. You could even have a plot where the guy stumbles upon a secret "House of Pleasure" or aka a whore house. Sorry if it sounds like i'm being harsh. I just don't want your games to fall into a rut.

I'd like to bring up a subject I mentioned in a previous comment. I think you'd be awesome at making Escape Games. Still, don't let this stop you. This was a tremendous effort. Keep it up!

These are the types of reviews which help make any game better!
The audio work in this was a giant pain, I haven't really ever had to face any audio work in flash in the past so it was quite a challenge getting the sounds to play when they are meant to play. The audio problems were a bit more severe at the beginning and caused most of the sounds to start playing at the same time when frames past a certain spot were entered, fairly annoying stuff. But yeah, I'll definitely work on my audio placement skills for the next game.

I'm not planning on making any more quiz games for a while now, the next project I have in mind is a mouse maze game.
I played around with the idea of an escape the room game, the main problem for me with that is the coding. I'm absolutely awful at Actionscript but I am trying to learn, with each game I do try to add in something I have absolutely no idea how to work so I can challange myself/learn something new. If I come up with some sort of a plot and what not I'll definitely get around to doing one.

Once again thank you so much for the review!
