Reviews for "Astro Jump: Jim in Space"

This game isn't too bad, but there are some improvements that could be made: add some music, add some indication of when the end of the game will be (like a map or distance from space station, etc.), and increase the difficulty. There were hardly any UFOs and some weren't anywhere near the path you had to take. Also, it was a bit annoying that if you jumped over the screen you automatically died. For a character that jumps so high, that's a bit of a pain.

The least I could ask for would be to have some way to tell how far you've gone and how much more you need to make it to the space station. Past that most of the other players that have left feedback are giving good comments and ideas for addition like music or better control of the character to not jump so high not be able to go down because you're stuck in hang-time in each jump. Even then it would still be a very basic game but nothing too offensive to hate with what you've made. I want to get the last medal but i don't know how far i'm expected to go and don't know if i've been close.

This game looks like it was made in a huge rush. There are tons of grammatical errors and the art is mediocre. The gameplay is very repetitive and the player quickly looses interest. In addition, this game seems almost identical to doodle jump. I would recommend adding music, checking your spelling and grammar, redoing the art so that it is at least consistent (the asteroids are in a very different style). Also, try animating the character sprite somewhat and add some variety in the stars in the background. Perhaps changing the jump mechanic so that it reflects the time the button is held down would help. I know this review was harsh, but you need to hear truthful reviews of your work to improve. It did have some redeeming factors like the arc of the jump as opposed to linear motion and the ability to sometimes skip asteroids, but overall this project seemed haphazard and could have used a lot more work. Best of luck in future games.

Well. You took the same game and didn't make the game any more interesting, you only added in UFO's that move slightly back and forth and added two medals. It still doesn't fix the fact the asteroids are randomly generated so sometimes you can't jump up to the next asteroid because it is too high up, and no background music.

I gave you a 2 before (if I recall correctly), I'll only give you a 1.5 because of the ignored issues.

PixoArcade responds:

Actually, the asteroids aren't randomly generated, and you can jump on every one.

I get really angry when I read your response to Warkgnall. He gave you really constructive criticism with loads of tips of how to improve it. He also apologized for being harsh, wished you good luck, and all you can do is calling him a jerk.

Other than that, he is completely right on all points. This is the kind of stuff you show your friends, but not something you upload on a serious game site. If it's your second game, well, I guess it's ok, but it does not matter to us as gamers how many game you've made. It's simply no fun at all to play. If Warkgnalls tips wont help you nothing will.

Please continue making games, but before you upload a game, do try it yourself and try to be honest about it. Do you really think this can compare at all to a good game here? If you just wanna showoff your first project, then harsh criticism is unavoidable. We judge games and not school projects.
