Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Today, I was shocked, Shocked I tell you, to discover that the masterpiece that is “Ancient Origins: Flying Fish” only has two badges instead of four. I assume the admins will take immediate action to correct this obvious glaring error.

Yeah, Nerdook’s earliest badged game is Clueseeper from March 2010, although he has (poorly rated) uploaded games from as early as 2007. He didn’t really rise to any sort of prominence until Zombies took my daughter / Vertical Drop Heroes / Monster Slayers (July – October 2010). Actually, considering I remember well when he was churning out a badged game a month, I’m a bit surprised it was that long ago.

Seems decent

Also, FWIW, Prec’s name for the easy is better than mine.

Yeah, enchanting doesn’t require magic points, I just don’t think it’s a very necessary part of the game, since the extent to which enchanting can improve your weapons is limited. This isn’t like Crystal Story, where upgrading your weapons is super important.

I think the defeat the spider medium and beat the game hard are definitely good ideas. Also, I think my suggestion for the easy badge was for finding a secret room AND escaping with an artifact and calling it “secret treasure,” which I still think is a good idea.

I’m not too keen on the enchant 10 items, though – it’s not really that necessary a game mechanic, and getting to 10 enchantments can be sorta tedious. I think if enchanting is going to be part of a badge, it should be something lower (like 1-5) as an easy or as part of a multi-requirement medium.

Also, just from a pacing perspective, I think a second medium either for getting to floor 60 (finishing the winter area) or beating the Yetti might make a lot of sense, otherwise it’s conceivable you’d get no badges for 55 floors, and 3 in the first 25.

Thanks for getting around to this, I’ve been eagerly awaiting TEC2 badges.

Topic: Kongregate / Tag Suggestions

I’d like to suggest a “trackpad friendly” tag for games that aren’t necessarily technically keyboard only, but for which gameplay isn’t signifgcantly impaired by only having a trackpad. It would be more useful than keyboard only for me because that’s really what I’m after when I’m playing on my laptop in bed.

What is going on

Yeah, that’s super odd, especially considering IIRC the medium badge was specifically added because of the high probability it’d wind up in the quest.

I used to use openbucks to recharge kreds but don’t bother anymore because of the stupid extra amount they added in. So now $6 will get me 50 kreds and I’ll always have leftovers. Other games dont have extra charges on openbucks, why does kongregate add them? Other than paypal, I don’t really have good ways to buy kreds anymore

Because capitalism. People want to make money wherever they can.

I compiled this mostly for fun. I realize there’s some room for debate on some of them, particularly when it comes to how I divided the defense games.

8 Platformers: Meatboy, Meatboy map pack, MoneySeize, Run 2, Focus, Tower of Greed, Fold, Vertigo Gravity Llama
6 Dungeon Crawler / RPGs – Monster’s Den, Mardek 3, Max Meseria 2, Epic Battle Fantasy 2, Cardinal Quest, Sonny 2
6 Point / Center Defense: Amorphous+, Mechanical Commondo, colourPod 2: dimensionPod, Cell Warfare, Death vs Monstars 2
4 Structure / Static Defense: Elona Shooter, Balloon Invasion, Tarnation, MAD: Mutually Assured Destruction
4 Rythm Games – Streamline, SCGMD2, SCGMD3, DJManiax
4 Bullet Hell: Zunder Fury, Frantic, Frantic 3, Epic Boss Fighter
4 Puzzle: 99 Bricks, Hexiom, Pyro, Super Stacker
4 Runners: Dino Run, Hippolyta Vector Runner, Rogue Soul 2
3 Strategy: Pandemic 2, The Space Game: Missions, Missions in Space: The Lost Colony
2 Timing: The Line game, oO
I Tower Defense – Bubble Tanks Tower Defense (+ Retired Desktop TD)
1 Card Game: Necronominom
1 Pong Variant: Orbular
1 Fighter: Warlords: Heroes

3 Miscellaneous: Dolphin Olympics 2, Gravitee, Ultimate Assassin 3

My biggest observation is there are a lot more platformers than I would have guessed without compiling this.

Yup.

It does what it does well, I just don’t enjoy games like those.

Actually, as those type of games go, I much prefer the UI on Pixelo. Although it’s better than shutter NoNo Sparks.

Wizzerd:
Pros: Uhh.. Fireballs? I dunno. I don’t really like this one.
Cons: You start out really weak, your only useful ability (fireball) will typically take a while to recharge, since I typically want things like health instead of inteligence. The only way I can imagine the Wizard being useful is if you save up 8,000 Morale and purchase the fencer perk. Really. Fuq the Wizard.

Well, no wonder you don’r have much luck with mages when you try to use a stat build better suited for a melee class. You shouldn’t be getting into actual melee fights with with the wizard, so health isn’t that important Prioritize Int above all else, followed by magic resistance and speed. For skills, just pump the spell damage stat all the way and get inspiration, followed by one point of forcefield and willpower. I tend to use dark arts minor and crowd control, the latter of which is great for when too many enemies are getting too close. I tend NOT to get iceblast, as it’s bad in close quarters. Just avoid engaging in too much melee, and by the time you get your intellect up to 15-20, you’re getting in a high-power fireball at least every 4-5 turns.

Maybe go with Procyonpi’s idea and add a medium “reach character lvl X” badge to fit with Bluji’s suggestion?

Also, there are plenty of pop culture references for the potential spider slaying badge. Aragog Aggressor, Miss Muffet’s Revenge, Angering Anansi… if you’ve got the char limit for it you could go with Does Whatever A Spider Can’t.

Yeah, if I were to add a second medium (and the game can afford it, it’s pretty long), it would be one of the following:
-Reach character level ~16 or so
-Beat the Yetti
-Reach floor 60 (finish the winter zone).
