I am a little torn reviewing this piece, for several reasons. The first being I have no knowledge of art or much of the artistic process, and so my opinion should, and does indeed, mean very little to anyone but myself. That being said, I would like to share with you how I feel, because you have made me feel so strongly.
I wanted to say that this piece is the reason Newgrounds is such a great site, but this work truly transcends any place it is viewed. Newgrounds isn't only better for hosting this, I am better for viewing this. So much art seems vain to me, selfish, beauty for exploitation, but not this.
This work is what art is to me. This is what makes me want to tell stories, sing songs, draw pictures.
And while I have never experienced a loss so severe, you have shown me, even if barely, how to empathize. For that, there is no reward I could give you to repay my debt.
So for now, these few, cliche words will have to suffice: Thank you.
This would only destroy the universe if you don't consider that at the beginning of time some one had to flip the hour glass once to get time started, in which case this robber just created what might be an infinite loop.
Well Im going to disagree with every one else and say that I did not predict the beginning, at least not all of it. I thought he might lose his finger or something, but watching him get entirely sucked in was pretty funny to me.
I thought the end was more predictable, especially on newgrounds where you can almost guarantee that if it made the front page it has a lot of A. Profanity B. Gore C. Sexual Themes D. A combo of all the above.
I think it would have been funnier if after the kid put in the change the guy crawls out of the machine with a beard and a candy bar, mumbling to himself or something.
But maybe thats just me. Either way, you did a great job with the music, animation, and idea. Something tells me you already knew that.
It's been a very long time since I've felt such good feelings for a game. Thank you for making this fun, cute, and simply amazing.
First, I think this is a mostly finished game, not completely finished. There is no ending, at least not as far as I played.
There are also no instructions, so players don't really know how to get points. Now, thats not a bad thing in all games, but when the entire purpose of the game is to get points, it's a little frustrating to be left without any consistency. Some bonus's are more fun when they are a surprise, but it would be nice to have at least a basic idea of how to get more points.
Also, there are numbers that increase every frame at the top of the screen that apparently have nothing to do with the score? At least not as far as I could tell.
Is the point of the game to avoid traps, or hit the traps? You get points either way.
last, there is no way to keep track of your score and so no incentives for the player to want to do better. You have to reward the player somehow, and finding out the random bonus you got at the end of the level you just played 5 times in a row isn't enough of one.
All of that being said, this is still a solid game. It functions the way it is intended and there are a lot of quirks that make it interesting.
Over all, great job :)
Any one who doesn't like this game has probably never coded anything for a day in their life.
Yes it's very simple, that's the point.
Yes the graphics are basically nonexistent, that's the point.
If you don't like what you see on the front-page, go out there and make something better. Maybe in the process you will learn how difficult it is to make a game and how to be a decent human being.
It's awesome that you challenged yourself to do it, and even better that you completed it!
I love this style of music, and this song portrayes all the best of it. excellent job on this, I though in the middle half it seemed a little slow, but it turned out fine later. excellent song, I wish I knew how to play this style better on my guitar.
Try hanging out in the countryside, and watch a few bluegrass bands.. you'll pick up in no time.
I wish I was better at playing this kind of music with my guitar, but im not. this was a really good loop by the way, i hope you dont mind if I use this in an animation?
good amount of music happening hear...with extra lead on the main part...I have no idea what im talking about, but the song was sweet, it was great, I listenend to it twice in a row, voted five and left this review with no summary and 9/10 starts while listening to the song again in the backround. then I submitted my revie-
i've just read your review and am now typing my response. i'd just like to say thank yo-
