It is really a great game. It makes lots of fun, is entertaining and (which is really nice) is has an unusual gameplay. It is a game I WAS tempted to give 5/5 …
BUT I did not and suggest you NOT to badge it. At more than one point at the game you need to access other sources than the game gives you. External news archive, real bible references, coding systems etc.
It is a pain in the you know where not having the access to such sources, which makes the game frustrating to many players.
@Dev: Great work, keep it up!!! But take out the external references and the enforcement to use more than the game.

I stick to my statement from November 2014 regarding MuCom 1. Same here for Episode 2

Okay, I think I’ve finalized the Awakening RPG badges. Planning these tomorrow for real:

Easy: Fight/win 10 battles

Medium: Complete 10 sidequests

Precarious’s and FlyingCat’s name suggestions are good. Keep ’em coming!

Oh, the irony…

At least the two games I stated (Tyrant and SwarmSim) are running as before. Thank you for fixing. Enjoy your Friday!

Same goes for SwarmSim and Tyrant (not T:U). Both are no Unity games.
I don’t even haven Unity ulayer on my laptop… it worked until approx. 6 hours ago.

Having actually earned all 144 stars, beating 48 levels is definitely a hard. Beating 36 levels is at least a challenging medium. Numbers of levels completed is too highly correlated to number of plumbers killed/stars collected to treat them too differently; there are many levels where you will lose before the timer on the third star runs out. It feels like a two badge game (a hard for lost levels completion or 144 stars, and a medium for an earlier checkpoint.)

Also, since somebody will mention the achievements: 15/15 achievements is a touch grindy (mainly because you need to kill 100 plumbers, and there are only 48 levels.) Individual achievements as easy/medium badge are possible.

API has been added by DEV. Game is rising towards 3.7 rating.
So here are my suggestions:

Easy: Complete level 8
Medium: Complete 36 levels
Hard: Collect 144 stars

I guess one or two badges would be enough for this game.

Yeah, I agree with your strategy. As in, finish the game first, then let it badged, and then let other people suffer. I really don’t know why I should not let other people having “fun” playing a game that gets worse after being badged. These people deserve it. Also, I don’t have any problems with Kong promoting laggy, badly designed games. It’s not my reputation that’s on stake, anyway.

And for those whiners, I’d suggest this: If you can’t beat them, join them. I used to feel bad about badging terrible games. Now I’d act like Bluji, and promote any Papa’s game regardless how good they are. (or any games by the creator of StrikeForce Kitty, and thegames8 games.)




(I’m not sure what I wrote was sarcasm. So just in case, If you didn’t like what I wrote, please regard it as sarcasm. :) )

You, boy, seem to have a tremendous pain in the rear end. I just recapped my post and was looking for any hint that may justify / explain your post but there is none. Really not one of my lines says: ‘Players deserve laggy / glitchy games!’ actually I am just sriting about myself that I can’t keep up with the discussion about badly programmed Decisions III because I did not experience those problems. Then I added I was using Chrome and a medium powerfull laptop, which maybe usefull for other players which use an old PC or even IE.

No discredit for others. No promoting other / badly programmed games. No hating. No strategy to benefit from major problems. Just information.

(I’m not sure if it is clear that I unserstood you sarcasm but am not using sarcasm myself in this post. :) )

this game is a definitely brilliant game. though its only 3.6 rating but it really needs to be badged.

Rating at the moment is 3.7. I really liked that one aswell. API implementation by DEV shouldn’t be the problem.

Suggestions:
number of Plumbers killed (suitable for an easy badge)
levels completed (suitable for medium or even hard (lvl 36 / 48))
Stars collected (suitable for medium (108) or hard (144))

It still has a rating of 4.2, so either FlyAnvil has hired a lot of raters or people are giving it 5-star just because it’s the sequel to Decision 2. I bet it is the latter.

In my opinion it should have a badge for getting 20 black screens.

That would be the fastest badge I’d ever get here on Kong.
Seriously, it is a copypaste of 2 plus some medieval (like orcs copypasted as mutants) and a truckload of glitches and poor design choices. Worst badge choice of 2015 so far.

Topic: Swarm Simulator / Boosting Energy production

I only miss the achievement for 20 ascensions (Prestigious). As ascensions are triggered by energy only I want to focus on energy production.
Is there any other possibility to boost energy production besides buying Lepidoptera (caps at 100 % and is very inefficient from 85 % on) and Lepidoptera Mutation (caps at 60 %)??

I wouldn’t buy any other meat, larvae, hatchery etc as the fun after 6 ascensions reduces immensly with no goal to go for…

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

As stated back in December I personally would not suggest Awakening for badges for following reasons…

Originally posted by Irgso:

I have played it through in 3 hours. It has a quite nice battle system BUT please do NOT badge it. The game is unfinished in many ways. It is still a little buggy and has some other issues comparing to other RPG on Kong. The most negative point is that the game’s plot is not finished. In the middle of the game there pops up a message by the developer saying “Actually the game was meant to be bigger / finished. But somehow I am not interessted anymore and it is too much work. Here is a big Goblin thing blocking the path. You cant go on from this point. But hey, just walk around the area you already have passed. It sooo beautiful….” (free interpration by me)
It is a pain in the food to have such an unfinished game.


On top of that I just received (like many other Awakeing players) a message by the developer saying that he definitely will not finish this game, ever.

Just to point this out for the specific game “Frozen Island”. It came out on March 26th… two days ago….

But even if it drops to 3.7 … then it just won’t get badged. But in that case not because a single person on the forum classified it as not-badge-worthy but because the majority of the people who played the game consider it a decent game but not good enough for badges. I don’t see how the opinion of one random person on the forum should be worth more than the opinion of 6k+ people who played the game.

Actually the whole dicision is up to one (not random) person, who is in our case the magnificant Greg (who really should get cloned as mention above correctly by AdamVIII). I am not saying ‘because I (insert any single name here) don’t think it is badge worthy this game is forbidden to have badges’. This forum is about discussion and support resulting in the final dicison by Greg.
So I think it is legitimate if any active user in this forum says ‘I would not badge this game, because …’. In that way Greg and any other user can assess this statement and dicide if he or she take it into consideration.
(that is what I thought how forums work: discussions)

edit: btw, this 3.8 rating “rule” is not a hard criterium. There are games badged with lower rating and games not badged with higher (e.g. post above by XEN0N). Just saying…

Frozen Island isn’t much of a game. Even a monkey could finish it lol

RIGHT, sir! It is highly repetititititive! Not much of a fun. Plus a no brainer the whole game through. Many better new games out there (even though therre are damn many idle games [of which swarmsim is a good one] and other no brainers like Family Rush… come on Devs show us some good work again)

edit: I liked from the more recent games: Octopus HTML5 (nice retro, simplicity), Transmorphers 3 (liked a little, but still more than others), Don’t espace (which already has badges, yay!), Royal Protectors (which was after implementing Casual mode not such agrind fest)

It’s not greg’s problem, is it?

I don’t see your point. It’s obviously greg’s problem since he is totally in charge.

Since when has he specificly cared about what rating and reactions the game ends up with AFTER it’s been badged? I had assumed that games are badged on only what merits they have BEFORE they’re badged.

Even though I do not understand badging Tequila Zombie either as there are maaany other games in the last weeks which were better (from my personal point of view and from rating).
BUT bagdes is what makes Kongregate worth staying on. So Kongregate (in this case Greg in person) should badge games which are worth playing and focussing for everyone. So it is Greg’s ‘problem’ to keep this page interesting.
(Not trying to tell anyone how to do his or her job. I just think Bluji is not anticipating far enough into the future when saying it is only considerable how a game is rated BEFORE bagdes…)

As this is / was a great a game (and to provoke a reaction) I nominate Asgard Attack as suitable for badges…. is it comes back to Kong?!?!
Greg, any feedback from you or your colleagues would be appreciated!

Topic: General Gaming / Asgard Attack - no more

I guess it has something to do with the sponsor of this game. The game was not completely available for Kong-players (Heroic mode)
In the game comments the DEV said he has to discuss the further approach with his sponsor side. I guess sponsor did not approve a complete game and Kong is not willing to publish a game which promotes different sides in that way…

A feedback from Kong-officials would be appreciated!!

edit: Just visited the sponsor’s page. NOT GOOD! Better keep to Kong, but Asgard Attack was a nice game though…

Sorry guys, the last 2 months have been pretty bad. StrikeForce Kitty 2 wasn’t as close as I thought it was, but I think/really hope it’ll be ready tomorrow.

Why did you give this laggy, glitchy piece of garbage a badge?

Seconded. Thank you, Greg, for torturing us like this. Can’t wait to play like 20 hours of lag to get a hard badge.

Road of the Dead 2 played well in my computer. Strikeforce Kitty 2 is just ridiculously laggy, like the 1st one. Why badge this?

Because the game didn’t have these problems when it was released, at least it wasn’t this laggy. I completed it in first 2 days after the release and the game was immediately suggested for badging and I had no lag problems whatsoever when I played it. It run perfectly and they weren’t any complains in the comment section. It seems these lag problems appeared when the devs patched it trying to improve it :/

Same for me. I played it some days after release and I had no problems with lag. (I do not have a powerful computer.It’s my business notebook)
