Reviews for "A Sweet Typing Thrill"

Played both as per the recommendation. This is very well done, although the the difficulty really is subjective, because after playing the first one it made certain puzzles in here just click easier. It took me an hour, instead of two like the last one. Not to say this didn't come with more unique and interesting challenges.

Either way though, proud to say I didn't need a walkthrough for this, just a couple sites so I didn't have to do certain things by hand. The secret ending i guess I have to leave for another day, but I may be PMing you (to avoid spoilers) about that final question. Because SERIOUSLY, that 3rd letter bro really. I'm lucky I got the rest of it and was able to piece it together.

Either way, great game with great lore, music and puzzles.

Hope you keep doing what you love and would love to see more from you in the future.

Awesome! Thanks for playing both games, ClanZT ^ ^

Yeah, the difficulty is definitely very subjective (based on the time it has taken people to beat the games). It's always difficult for me to balance it so that it pleases a large userbase. But I think I've managed ok :)

Nicely done, managing to beat both games on your own! It's definitely allowed to use other sites; in fact, the games would be way too difficult without them for most people.
Thanks for avoiding spoilers! :)
You can indeed PM me in case you need more clues :D

Once again, thanks for all the compliments!

I'll definitely always stay creative, and keep working on projects whenever I have time ;)

Thanks for the support!

After a long break, I came back to play the sequel. Honestly, this was very challenging, but the challenge is what made it so fun. I was banging my head against the wall for the "Rotate" puzzle for about an hour. I did cheap out a little and read a hint you gave someone else, but it suddenly clicked. That was a tough one. This game was even better than the first. I was so enveloped in the game that I didn't care if I solved the puzzles in one minute or one hour. It got my brain working, and it was fun to change my point of view about certain aspects of the puzzles to get the right answer. You are an amazing author and musician (oh by the way, did I mention the music was awesome? No? Well, it is) and your clever word play is so creative. Additionally, what a clever name for the title of this game; you put so much thought into it. I can't wait to see what games you make in the future.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks a lot for playing and reviewing both games!
It's good that you didn't let the challenge thwart you :)
I don't think that reading up on any hints is cheaping out. I only write replies, knowing anyone can read them; any hint you find is fair game ;)

Awesome that you enjoyed this one even more than the original! I sometimes think it's a shame I can't play these games myself, as if it was the first time, since I created them. But I always like hearing what others thought of the experience ^ ^

Thanks for complimenting the music too! Music is my main thing, after all, while games are somthing I tend to develop on the side :3

Great job managing to get the secret medal ;D
I don't know what kind of games I create in the future, but I hope they will be enjoyable :)

O_O I just guessed the secret ending. Then the game shows HOW to get the solution.

It blew my mind.

I just guessed it right because of the hints you gave on the news post. Thanks.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Whoah! That's a pretty impressive guess!
Oh, and if someone else happens to read this, please avoid even minor spoilers in the reviews :)

Thanks for playing and leaving a review, Gil, and great job beating the game, along with the secret ending! :O

I feel like i'm following red herrings, stuck in the listening level. Good story and great game. Every achievement is worth it here.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Ooh, good job making it that far!
It's probably the level I put the most effort into creating. Remember that the theme of the game is codes, and see if the title of the level gives you any hints ^ ^
If you already know that you need to listen, you just need to know what to listen for ;)

Thanks for playing and reviewing!

I'm still stuck on the Rotate level. There is so much going on in this level, I don't know what to look for.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you for playing!
Well, let's just say that google is mentioned in that particular level for a reason :)
Things of the same color are also connected to each other ;)
