YOU GO DOWN THE FREEWAY NOT ACROSS YOU DUMB BITCH
This video hits the spot on the discussion of games. Specially the whole part of banning violent video games and the already existing rating system which the parents seem to ignore and buy rated M games for their 9 year old child.
One of the best motivational videos I've seen. 5 stars.
As a previous reviewer has mentioned, I also do believe this game would be better if it had some sort of closure. Getting all the trophies and upgrades are fine, but it still provides no sense of end to the game. All the time spent upgrading the submarine and getting all the achievements, just to find the ocean never ending and nothing to give you a sense of complete accomplishment. It kind of makes you disappointed. Unless I haven't gotten deep enough, which I doubt cause after going straight down vertically from the starting point (you can glitch out into the black area) I didn't find anything.
Poor game, and yes I do realize the author said it was a short experimental game. The character was simply uninteresting. The controls felt like you were sliding on ice topped with grease. There was an indicator that pointed out there is an ending to the game which was getting out of the screen, but there were zero indicator on how to achieve this. Basically finding the right path to the ending involved sheer luck or just randomly jumping around everywhere every stage to find a false wall (which I didn't try cause I thought it would be to damn obvious). Especially the ending made me rage out in frustration. A simple, The end. Seriously? Yes it may be a short experimental game but that's just shows there was no effort. I would've understand if this was not on the front page, but that's not the case. It is on the front page. I expected something fulfilling or at least satisfying when I started to play this game cause that is what I expect of a flash that is ON THE FRONT PAGE. I think the biggest fault of this flash is just the fact that it was on the front page. And yes this is with the fact after I read and understood the author mentioned this is a short experimental game. Cause if I see a flash on the FRONT PAGE and the author says it's short and experimental(which waives requirement as precision in the controls, quality of the sound, art, etc), I'm expecting something really intuitive or creative the make up for the lack of length, quality and/or plot. I guess newgrounds is at a slump or something right now. Standards have definitely reached a new low this time.
Great, but with it's flaws
Well, after beating the game through 1 hours of consecutive playing my wrist is killing me.
First off, things on the game as some other members mentioned. Hotkeys, this would have been a god send, and why it was not incorporated is beyond my understanding(would've made the game much more controllable). Another thing, upgrades for the cursor which could have been nice as the pull range or speed. The music was good, but after listening to the same music for 1 hour straight it does want to make me scrap out my ear drums with a rusty dull spoon. Also, the tutorial was way to forceful in my opinion, and the fact it does not repeat after the first run through of it (unless I missed a button or something) had me confused for couple of rounds as I accidentally skipped through few messages. And I don't know how the penguin AI was set up, but two things I would like to mention about it. One, the penguins grind themselves to the wall(although I feel this has been done purposely so the obstacles actually block the penguins), and they seem to pick random targets instead of picking the target that is right in front of them(excluding the fading penguins). The game also had it's fair share of some grinding to get started, but nothing unbearable.
Some good thing about the game I liked, is that although upgrades were necessary to advance through the game, one did not need to get all the upgrades to beat the game. Well timed ability and a little bit of luck, and it is possible to beat a round without arming your penguins to the teeth. I felt that the abilities actually is useful in this game(all four of them), and didn't have a lot of problem with the game's balance until towards the end of the game, where as it started to get easy.
So, I don't know if anyone at all would read this 5 page essay of a comment, but I think this game earned it. I felt the game was very entertaining, and enough for me to log in, write a review, and vote. So keep up the good work, I'll look forward to your next work on the front page.
I wish the window would play this something when the BSOD comes up or it doesn't respond lol.
I'm sure you can run in and replace a few sounds with this but uh I don't think you can get into specifics.
I don't think any computer would play music if it was blue screened anyways
TECHNICALITIES ASIDE, I guess it would be cool
Thanks for the attention, I'm glad you enjoyed
I want to be that cool also, but alas, I'm only a homo-sapien :p
That was such a fuckin stupid idea with that chicken...^^ thanks for review.
Great song, and the story in your comment wouldn't happen to be the prologue of Ublet Blatt is it? Cause it sounds awfully familiar.
