Under rating threshold (show) I like the idea, it provides some good game play while giving a chance for people to read poetry they might not have read before. It might have been good to have poetry in different reading levels or length. Although I really enjoyed The Nameless City, it was long and might have made some people not care to finish the first poem.

Under rating threshold (show) Very unique game. Love the way the background matches what your reading. The "deadly" words is a nice tough that adds a little challenge to this gem. You should make a sequel with more poems and great works of literature, and give the players an option to build their own levels with their own works. Fantastic game, unique concept, great written word choices all around superb.

Under rating threshold (show) I love how the the environment reflects what is going on in the story, and the platforming difficulty makes my heart race just as the character's heart races during a scene. This game is simply too beautiful to not get a 5/5 rating.

Under rating threshold (show) To turn such art into such a game is truly a remarkable way of getting priceless scriptures out there to the masses. I saw a few poems I havn't seen before, and that was a marvelous feeling to gain, especially when I expected to head to kongregate and attain far less wholesome entertainment.

Under rating threshold (show) Is it actually possible to get 100%? I am currently ranked at no 4 in the world (trying like hell to get to at least number 3) but for the life of me I can not figure out how to get to "descent" on The Nameless city part 2, part three I'm struggling with just because of the length and the powerful words- but at least there I can hit all of them. N.B no one else has seemed to get 100% on all of them otherwise they would have 10,000 instead of 9,998. Anywho! I think this is a great game, it’s very well made, I love the "little sighing sandstorm" and all of the visual cues that help you to really FEEL the story; I think the best made one is Alice in wonderland. and yes people some of them are a hell of a lot longer than the poems, that’s part of the fun, it takes at least 3 hours to get nameless city part 1 done 100%-and its taken me at least 4 days to get it all there, apart from part two and three, god my eyes are hurting, back to the small steep steps for me! Going on day five

Under rating threshold (show) this is a beautiful game. It takes the people on this website who come here for violence away from the blood and guts and truly appreciate how beautiful literature is. Hopefully this game will inspire people to read more often, and not come into reading only by playing a platformer on a game website

Under rating threshold (show) This is probably the first game i have ever played that is not based on gameplay or game storyline. The nameless city left me in a state of simple awe, the piano music was great as well, this game can pass hours without you realizing it a very butiful thing, im torn between a 4/5 and a 5/5, this game belongs in a genre all of its own, rare and buitifull.I am awestruck.

Under rating threshold (show) If there were a level editor I would make levels of my favorite book series, the Belgariad/ Malloreon, although I'm pretty sure that in Mallorean the name "Zandramas" (evil character) pops up ALOT, so there would be alot of powerful words in that book. 5/5 and add to favorites ^^

Under rating threshold (show) Once again I am astounded by Gregory Weir. This game has completely, wholly, and perfectly mixed my two most favorite hobbies. Video games, and reading. The way the words in the background form around the storyline, it just makes the story just that more amazing. My most favorite was, quite obviously if you had played the game, The Nameless City. The story is fascinating, always constantly making you go on to discover what happens, and the challenges of the cliffs and the power words were great, and yet they were absolutely nothing compared to my will to read on. I've said it before, I'll say it again, and I'll say it many more times in the future. I have, once again, been astounded by another one of Gregory Weirs masterpieces. 5 out of 5, 10 out of 10, and 1,000 out of 1,000.

Under rating threshold (show) an intriguing and varied selection of classics... i like that the "platforms" of text form images associated with the story. however, when playing through stories i hadn't previously read, i found that the "powerful" words simply lent unnecessary frustration to the reading experience. eventually i was just rushing madly through sections of text which i had been forced to repeat countless times, no longer reading the actual text and therefore missing important details of the story. who knows, maybe i'm just impatient. all in all, i enjoyed it.

Under rating threshold (show) Suggestions: 1) Adjust the camera to give more room IN FRONT of the player character. That would be nice. I don't need to see behind me, I've been there and read that bit already. I need to see where I am going. In film, I believe this is called nose room. 2) Some sort of adjustment for people with different (faster) reading speeds would be nice. Maybe hold shift to dash? The whole, "word, wait, word, wait, word, wait" is really tiresome. 3) Better level views and sorting. Like type, length, year, etc. 4) Level editor and user created levels. 5) Shorter, better proportioned jumps, but with double or wall jump. Adds more of a skill flair.

Under rating threshold (show) The game would be so much better if the "powerful" words weren't dark red and the background wasn't black. Definitely recommend changing that so you can actually see the "powerful" words coming at you. Other than that, the game is decent and seems to flow well. There's a lot of literature in the game, though the gameplay is fairly average. Overall, I'd have to give it a 3/5 until the background is changed so you can see the "powerful" words.
