greg can you give us an update on Tequila Zombies 3 and Caravaneer 2?

I’m probably going to remove Tequila Zombies 3 from the queue due to the crashing glitch, but Caravaneer 2 is still on my list, albeit at a lower priority than newer games.

Anyway, as an update, Sentry Knight Conquest, Doodle God Blitz, Matter of Caos Episode 2, and Gemcraft: Chasing Shadows are the games currently at the top of the queue.

Greg, thank you for badging the Cube Escape games lately and the update of your list. (And personally thanks for removing Tequila Zombie 3)

Have you ever considered following:
Drink Beer, Neglect Family 3.6 rating
Game.Init 3.5 rating
Pause Ahaed 3.8

I don’t know why an administrator would censor my post, but no matter what, GC:CS is already released for over a year in AG. No censorship can hide the fact that Kongregatians are joyous eating the leftovers on AG’s dinner table. That is actually a shame.

I’m pretty sure Gemcraft 2 – Chasing Shadows is not a year old on ArmorGames.

Actually, yes it is

I honestly don’t see the problem in playing / publishing a game which is a year old (or 15 months). Take the game “Pause Ahead” as an example. I didn’t knew it before someone mentioned it here two pages ago. Great game, I’d definitley like this one to get badges, and it is published on Kong November 2013.
To stay with Pulsaris’ analogy I wouldnt deny any good leftovers expecially when I was waiting for exactly that meal for over a year.

I use Kong to escape school

Same arguements against Guess Countries USA as against Europe:
I would argue against Guess Countries: USA. There is no plot, no variety, no reason to replay the game. There isn’t even a highscore for completing without mistakes or based on time.

Additionally “Guess Countries” implies in my opinion that the player has to guess certain countries out of one pool (Europe). This would be a nice feature, in both ways: first, the game highligths a country and the player has to name this specific country; second, the game gives us a name and we have to click the country.

Don’t get me wrong, I also like both, Geography and educational games. But this game is not really exciting, sorry.

+1 for me.
Just played it. Challanging, High replayabilitly, has already some API (but maybe not THAT badgeable ones), interesting mechanics, rating 3.77.

Darn It! Why we only have 3 badges for geography game/s? Only one geo game gets badges, i hope “Guess Countries: Europe” will have the desired rating. Geography is my favorite and is very educational and meaningful. The 3.8 rating is really hard to reach nowadays, maybe it should be lower. I think NON-IDLE, NON-MMO, NON-MP, NON-CCG games with 3.5 rating would perfectly fit for the badge req.

I would argue against Guess Countries: Europe. It is not very well programmed and has at least one major ‘plot’ mistake (Turkey is partially European, just as Russia). ‘Plot’ is the next topic. There is no plot, no variety, no reason to replay the game. There isn’t even a highscore for completing without mistakes or based on time.

Short review:
Sugar Sugar 3: Thank you Greg. Game gets challanging after a while and is definitely no idle… I can’t even follow this thought, but anyway.
GC CS: This one has to have badges due to story depth, game complexity and good mechanics. I don’t think it is too long and too much of endurance as you do not do always the same moves.
StrikeForce Kitty Frontier (current rating: 3.36): I do not experience a major lag / memory problem in the first 4 groups attacking my castle. But this game is extremely repetitive and really boring (different to the first two parts). So from my point of view not badge worthy
Awesome Seaquest (3.49): Easy game. Not any recognisable innovation in comparison to is predecessor (Awesome Conquest). No badges.
Bear in super Action Adventure (3.90): Yes, kind of entertaining. Easy gameplay, upgrades, jetpack bears, some kind of story. Easy and medium badge would be okay I guess.
Level Editor 4 (3.54): I enjoyed playing this game. Simple platformer, good length, interactive. just pointing out to this forum that there is this game. It is okay.
Puzzle Tower (3.52): I actually like puzzle games a lot but this one somehow didn’t get me…
Drink Beer, Neglect Family (3.55): This is a game I really liked. It is funny, in this set-up it is unique, after some (in game) beers it gets difficult. I hope this makes it up to higher rating so it is badge-worthy!!
Game.Init() (3.52): This game is great. Nice story (even though not veeery new), a developer who listens to his community, good gameplay, challanging, perfect length. Sadly still low rating (maybe due to its difficulty). Medium or even hard badge, yeah!


Drink Beer, Neglect Family and Game.Init() are my current favorites for future badges.

I honestly don’t know if I’ve become blind for Gemcraft length, but I don’t find the medium badge or the first hard badge very long.

Same here. GemCraft Chapter 0 or GC Labyrinth felt way longer than GC CS. And as the game has variety (in contrast to e.g. Papa’s games) the over average length is not such a downturner as in other games.

Edit: Just another deep (long) game which I looove was / is Mardek 3. Hell long, hell great!

Regarding the achievement system, the easy badge is actually based on an in-game achievement. Or are you suggesting a badge for earning X in-game achievements? If so, propose a number!

easy: 20
Medium: 99 / 100
hard: 250 / 255 (Somehow the number “255” reminds me of something)

Thank you, Greg. Just pointing out that it is not retroactively (Well it takes like 5 – 10 minutes to finish the game if you have done it once, so not THAT big deal.)

We have a lack of games on the list, isn’t Egg Knight enough, the game has spend 18 days on the site and had 3.76 rating with working API

Egg Knight has one major bug. When you refresh or close the window while you get a new knight you cant enter any city after reloading. So you cant do quests and all progress you made is wasted…

So no savegame for me, no magicians pouch I paid… what a disappointment.

Indeed, not feeling like paying twice for the same game either.

Why would you even want to buy the pouch? Game is totally doable without spending money (just saying)

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / pay2win

This is not p2w and it is not p2beat.
I am through the game, no pouch, almost no shadow cores used. Hardly done any level multiple times. (Yeah, it sucks that some features are blocked like chain gem, endless mode, haunting difficulty, swarm or Chasing Shadows but it gives you some hours of free entertainment.)
It is completely doable without spending any money.

I suppose it’s inevitable for gemcraft to be badged, even if it means hours of grinding to get them. But can someone explain why it took over a year since its release to appear on Kong? I don’t see any benefits for anyone.

For the moment only API is won battles. Not very satisfying but I guess Kong (Greg) and geminabottle will agree on other stats aswell.
And for everyone who had trouble with the length of GCL. This one is not as grindy as Labyrinth at least in my impression after completing the game.

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Transfer save file from AG?

Hey everyone,
I have played the game on AG some months ago. It was quite nice and entertained me for some hours. I know that there is a possibility to transfer they save file from AG to Kong by simply copy and paste the actual local save.
My question now is where do I find the local save folders on my pc? (If I remember right it was in some “hidden” files, but not sure though)
Thank you for support!

Edit: Wait all 3 are Unity games dang it.

And two multiplayer games… so even more weeks without badges for some members
But anyway, it is a free side with free fun. So my complaint keeps within limits. :)

Egg Knight seems pretty easy to badge, and greg play this game so it will be most likely the next game to get badge/s.

Egg Knight is still bugged. If you close the game, refresh the page or anything like that while you are getting a new egg you can’t enter any city anymore after continuing. So you can’t proceed in the game. All progress gets wasted

Doodle God Blitz has a 4.3 rating and still no badges. It’s not an unity game, it’s not a multiplayer game, had super high rating (this game is the fourth highest rated puzzle game of all time),nice concept, popular, had an estimated gameplays of 500k, and one thing it needs is “4 badges”

Edit: it’s #3 now in the highest rated puzzle game of A.T.

Doodle God Blitz has almost no improvement to the already badged predecessors besides pictures and enormous money draining. It is even more P2W than any MMORPG or CCG I have played before.

EDIT: I have played the game a month ago or something BEFORE the energy disabling update. So yes, Doodle God Blitz might get a medium badge for something like completing 100 Elements…

@back900: Because a Unity game was proposed as a candidate for a badge. And this decision would affect thousands of people in a negative way. You might be right though. At this point a separate thread could be a better decision. However, I don’t think there is much discussion left.

So discussing on Unity is a thing NOW? The last 28 of 30 badges I do not own are Unity badges. Why are we discussing it now?
But yeah Unity sucks, is already outdated and thwarts Chrome users (2014 majority)

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
