This is nice
I'd compliment you on your work, but unfortunately for you, I too have found the tutorial and online resources to make this exact same game (same dimensions, gameplay, andeven the way the ground flashes red when hit).
If you'd added some original elements to this game, building on top of the gameplay of the original (not just the visuals - nice job though), then it would be worth a higher score.
Don't stop using online resources such as tutorials or source files- they help learning flash and actionscript more than any book has helped me!
just as before- this is great!
Good start, but more effort needed
nice game, i undersand how achieving it feels to write even the simplest of games.
Problems with this game include;
Music got on my nerves after initially likeing it (sorry!)
Menu buttons annoyingly in the way of the paddle
Collision with bat was hardly realistic or expected, deterring from the fun
Bad graphical quality
Needlessly large file for the game (compress or edit your music!)
More time needed. 'Ultimate' is hardly a worthy expression at the moment :/
Keep working and dedicating more time to the programming and graphical quality! - needs to be tidied up too.
It's a good quality game, but much like many gamers, I find sound an integral part of any game, please add some.
To make this a top scoring game, you could add some animation of backstory (why shoot these guys?) or even just the take off (VERY simple, yet VERY effective). You don't have to take heed of my advise, but try to make your next game(s) more of an experience.
Keep trying! -Peda
NEVER HEARD OF VIRTUAL SPRINGFIELD?
Before the reviewing, a little mindless rant. (you need not take much notice of it -it regards similarities to Virtual Springfield - Not trying to be mean and spiteful though!)
What, so the dining room, kitchen, entrance hall and other rooms just HAPPEN to be EXACTLY THE SAME (with obvious exceptions of small colour and picture changes) from EXACTLY THE SAME ANGLES?!?! The gosh darned recliner with the button was even in place! But this rant could easily be discredited if you only every saw screenshots of 'Virtual Springfield', being ignorant to the actual game XP.
Ranting aside, the virtual springfield formula is present, and as you claim to not know the game, it is played like yours, but looks better, has much more happening, more things to click, more places to go, more games to play and more things to collect (but who the hell is expected to try THAT hard?)
A modest effort to an already great idea. Seeing the other reviews, I agree that there needs to bo more to do, just add more to click on, more rooms, some characters!
Keep up the good work, let's hope it gets bigger and better (and by the way, Virtual Springfield is not a 'free to download' game, it's rather old but is still cram packed with Simpsons goodness. I still play it today! It's got it's own version of 'Doom' in the kwik-e-mart!).
Man, what a long review. I want some donuts.
actually great knews someone IMed thorugh Aol Instant Messanger with a free download just now! And Im going to download it. Hwll maybe Ill atually make a virtual springfield like the game maybe betta. And I honestly havent played it I swear.
18 fps isn't something to be that proud of, try adding 2-4 more and it's appeal will grow. You found a good song, it's old and has many fans I love Lynch. I love that song! But you took the idea of the dead puppies, showed them dieing, PUT HIM ON THE FRIGGIN CRUCIFIX. The lip sync failed to exist, the song wasn't whole, AND THAT GUY ATE THE PUPPY. The song is funny, but this flash is pretty 'violating'. Mind you, I'm into funny gorey things - but my oldest dog has sadly passed away only a few months ago, so be weary of touchy people, who may be in my situation too.
-Peda (kepp on thryng though - The flash has some high potential)
Sorry to hear about your dog, i lost a kitty awhile back cause my over weight girl friend fell asleep on it. so i know how you must feel.
glad you liked the graphics though.
It was good
I WAS good, but I don't really feel that it was worth completing, well for one thing that bonus sonic video wasn't worth it, I can watch it everyday at 4pm in GOOD quality on TV.
And another thing, I have always been led to believe (in my 13 years as a Sonic fan) that Sonic was gonna be a Dog \:-/
Well, it was a good effort and I felt that the questions put there were good, and a few were even challenging for me (which I was wholly surprised about)
It's a rounded good effort.
Oh, and I gave it 5.
And another thing! The last thing Sonic says is Sayonora Shadow, the hedgehog. But I don't think it's that important that you missed two words ^^
K? Please respond!
that show doesnt come on where i live....thx for the review
Wow. How much effort twent into this? It was AMAZING! So much to do. So Horrendously interactive!
I have created a monster of...monstrous proportions.
Thanks for the 10, and for adding me to your favourites list.
rubba dub dub, thanx for the grub
Nice game, original! The retart button not working sux, I think the music should be tun off/on able. But overall It's good for what it is, a small game for a small laugh.
as the great Tails the Fox said, 'I am done'.
Thanx for the fun game, I enjoyed playing it.
