I didn't bother getting past the intro before giving up--there's no option to speed up the text and if that's how it's going to be through the entire game, then you'll be lucky if anyone bothers to get through it to actually play the game. I'm sure it's a great game, but I wouldn't know because of it. give us an option to click the mouse or hit a button to get all of the text in one shot, PLEASE.
I have removed the typing sound script which should make the game run smoother on browsers and not abysmally slow like before.
four stars for the concept. I really, REALLY like the idea, but this specific example is most definitely not very good.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do with this, though. :)
I can't even get past the first tall obstacle. I hit jump, and it doesn't go high enough. I won't give stars to a game I can't even play.
this isn't new or interesting at all. the music is decent, the graphics are okay, but... it's just, as other reviewers have said, Bejeweled. something more original would get you more stars, but... this is anything but original.
Well, I won't make another Match 3 game any time soon. I had a random strong desire to recreate a certain positive experience I had with match 3s... okay, Bejeweled 2 (space, 3d rendered gems), and few indie ones (obstacles, powerups, matching into blank spaces).
amazing, amazing, and amazing. it also tickles me that the hogrider has an uncanny resemblance to a certain shock rocker who got famous in the mid 90's. XD
really, this is very good--the music is very fitting, the gameplay (while slow, due to my laptop) is great, and the levels are definitely very difficult, but not so difficult that I throw my hands up and say "screw it". good work. :)
this seems to be a great game, however, it's impossible to play on a laptop because of the "use your mouse to aim and swing/shoot" factor. good job, though.
those damned starfish. *grumble*
this is a pretty decent game--maybe if you made a sequel with better graphics, more/better gameplay, and more updates, you might have a big hit on your hands? I really like this a lot, tho--good job. :)
Thank you! And trust me, I hated the starfish so much I turned them off during development, haha. :D
this is a really good game.
it'd be better if the first level weren't so effing hard--I barely make it inside the elf's body and his heart rate drops to zero. not good, you guys.
if you could make that problem less prominent, I'd enjoy this a lot more.
this game has a great concept, it has good replay factor, it's well done, and so on, but boy does it seem sad. I blame that on the music. I think something less depressing (to me, anyway) for music, or an option to turn it off would have made this game a LOT better. I don't mind the retro sound at all, I just don't like how sad it sounds.
that complaint aside, this is a good game. I like the fact that your actions directly affect your child and can either cause him to be overly sheltered, get killed prematurely, or go out and do a bunch of heroic things. as I said, it's a very good concept. it's just that the music makes me feel like it's a sad game.
I'm voting based on my past experiences with this game, but currently, there appears to be a bug where the screen blacks out completely when I hit the "Config" button... and this is a problem because I don't really like having the music playing in most of the games that I play, and because since it's blacked out, I can't see anything.
good game, though. VERY good.
