The game has the potential to be awesome, but pushing buttons and finding exits got boring for me after about 10 levels. I would have much preferred to see Spewer in an adventure platforming game of some kind.
I really love the mechanics, and it all works great, but personally I think he needs a scenario that suits his outlandish character design rather than a cold Portalesque vibe.
With that said, great job!
A little rough
While I can see a ton of effort went in to making this game, it doesn't hide the fact that the game is really rough around the edges. The camera sensitivity needs to be toned down and your bullets need a spray, burst or charge feature so it's a lot easier to kill your targets.
Just put a little more work in to ironing out the wrinkles and it could be a solid game.
That was Dino-tastic!
Seriously, hahah, awesome job.
awesome awesome awesome
hulloooo bryan mah man and jermz mah whore. This game is total sex. You guys are sex. Best pants ever!
Absolutely love the game! Great work dudes!
no YOUR mother.
thanks for teh happy fun fish <3
awesome work guys
Loved it to pieces! Heard you didnt have time to fix the wall telporting bug. T____T ah well! Still a godly game.
nice work dude! Very fast pased addicting game. The music rocks out, well deserved 10 for that. The game is a little difficult at first, but once I got used to the controls and how the dude moved, it was easy and alot of fun!
As many people have said, the girls voice is a bit annoying. If she only said it at the start of the game, that would be cool.
Anyway, good work man, love all your games.
mackan_ pretty much summed this up. I looked through it all, and its not too good at all.
The Flash section: Drawing
Although put into lamens terms in an attempt to make it easily understandable to noobs, you realy detracted alot of explanations about certain tools. Alot more effort could have been put into it. The layout and explanations were sluggish and placed all over the screen. Using a description box and nicely placed diagrams with numbers would have been more sufficiant.
Once again, very messy and unorganized placing of descriptions and diagrams. The descriptions themselves were alot more "simpler" than the ones in 'Basics', as well. So far all of this stuff can be found in flash itself, with better descriptions and easier to understand diagrams.
...er, not so Expert-
Dont teach what you dont know how to do yourself. You "Drawing Manga" was attrocious. The head looked like something a 7yr old would draw and you didnt even explain how to draw a body, only explained how lonf each limb should be, which you got wrong anyway. The perspective help was not at all helpful, if not, uninforming. The first image of the rectangle is fairly good, but ...its a rectangle, you cant realy get it wrong. But the guides you drew after it are all wrong.
The Flash section: Animation
Again, explained poorly and a better explanation can be found in flash itself.
This was by far the worst explanation of FBF ive seen. "Theres nothing realy to tell about FBF animation" is the biggest load of bull ive heard. There is ALOT to FBF animation, all of which you did NOT cover. Telling people to "just add keyframes" is not a tutorial. Same goes for the blurring, "I left traces of lines"....seriously man if you want to make a tutorial at least EXPLAIN how to leave the traces and if people should have them going for a certain amount of frames and a certain color depending on how fast they are going and what angle etc etc.
Im not even going to delve into this. Bad is all I can say.
The Flash section: Special Effects
Before I start let me say again, dont make a tutorial on something you dont know yourself!
Besides the fact that these explosions defy the laws of physics and dont follow how an explosion should be....they were also drawn and animated quite bad. Also, once AGAIN, a very tame explanation.
The blood looked decent enough. Some parts also defied physics and gravity but a nice blood animation none the less.
A copy and paste job....nice work. You could of at least REFERENCED flashkit for taking their script. Or at least stolen the explanations too.
Not too bad here, it actualy did look like some electrical currency was happening, though you could have taken it further with some glowing and sparks.
Simple explanation. But again, could have been explained alot better. Also in the help files IN FLASH.
Everything in the basic script is explained alot more clearly in flash itself. And I must say you deserve an award for making the most difficult explanation of variables.
The advanced script....PLEASE reference the creators of the script your using. Totaly obvious your using the space shooter script from flashkit, you didnt even bother to change the dimensions, so the bullets dissapear at x550. The platform engine was obviously taken from flashkit as well, as there is a script exactly like it there. Honestly......*sigh*
Basically, as ive said a few times before. You should extensivly learn the things your trying to teach before you attempt to teach others. Create a new GUI, this one is messy, harsh on the eyes and just plain ugly. Try to teach some things that are not already out there, 80% of the flash tuts you wrote are all easily explain in the flash help section.
Also, dont be so damn arrogant. Just because someone doesnt like your flash, you dont have to be a dick about it.
Ok, good that you took the time to at least look at the tutorial. But here are some things:
Drawing: The tools are explained ok, ok, so im not good at drawing mange. BUT THIS IS THE WAY TO DO IT, so why dont teach it to people.
Tweening: Everything is explained perfectly and everybody ive shown it to could perfectly understand it
Special effects: The only special effect part i didnt make myself was the scripted fire, for the rest I CREATED AND INVENTED ALL THE EFFECTS MYSELF
Sprites: I dont see whats wrong with this. Everything is explained good.
Actionscript: Ok, some things could be explained better ,but most of it was pretty darn understandable (nobody had problems with it) and i credited some people (like the platform engine, which wasnt from flashkit btw)
Ok, now the things. YOu dont give a 1 for a tutorial which you see took a long time to make, and which is helpfull to a lot of people (if it wasnt, it wouldnt score so high)
I would like to see you do better.
Im going to mart this review abusive now. And i know loads of other people will to, so that you will be banned from reviewing for ever.
very nice dude. Some sweet scripting you've got going on.
On hole 7, you havnt got shapeflag on for the angled piece of wood, either that or you havnt programmed angles.
either way, its a nice little game
vey nice job guys! One of the best flash games on NG. Congrats on frontpage.
I liked choosing 2 player and using the mouse and the arrow keys. Its difficult at first, but your unbeatable if you can do it ^ . ^
once again, nice job!
you get a 0.....
egads! Wink has been stolen and painted black!
How about you get your own characters, being influenced is one thing but geez!
