Reviews for "The D.O.E.S"

Please, delete that last update. It is now easier thank you think. Ignore those whining little fucks.

wow this is atrocious. the game is mostly fine, the gameplay mechanics are pretty good, and it was kind of a mix between a dungeon crawler and minesweeper, but the combat... dear god the combat. what can i respond to the combat with other than fuck you too. every single attack is a spastic mess that is nearly impossible to avoid, and the choice is to either have constant mutual strikes, or attempt avoid his attacks and sacrifice your own attack, or try to comprise and between attacking and dodging and end up doing neither. it is a broken mess, and if you had replaced all the combat scenes with a giant middle finger, i barely would have noticed the difference. this isn't even lazy design, this had to have taken a lot of effort to make it this god-awful, and if that was the intention, then conglaturations. if not, well, i pity you. But still, you can do a little better. even if you don't think so. i promise.

Its kind of fun, but the fighting is spastic and terrible. The enemies seem to teleport around too much and their window of 'attack'/'dont attack' is on very short timers. Any random object encounter I had always penalized me, lol.

Very creative gameplay idea!

Its a fun game very challenging.
Here are some suggestions.
-fix the luck portion of the game. Either have it where you dont get increments of 1 or lower down the requirements, what you have it as now make the fun things impossible
-add health regen? Have a way to regen health so you dont die every second encounter, maybe +1 health after every tile clicked
-slow down the enemies, they fly around the screen like theyre on speed, the only way to defeat them is to take damage.
- remove the "dont eat" portion of combat either slow the enemy or remove this, you should still be able to dish out damage while the enemy is attacking, it doesnt really make sense why they dont take damage while attacking.

Otherwise pretty addictive pretty fun.

I agreed with this somewhat. Enemies now always take damage on contact... on the ABS version. Thanks.
