Topic: Game Programming / WTF is wrong with the Kongregate Community?

Hey, first thank you to everyone who took his time to play my game and write something here.
I really get all your points, and you guys are right. A lot of things could have made been better and better to understand.

I guess im just way to oldschool for that, stupidly thinking that a game could be interesting enough without taking the player by his hand like a little child * getting sarcastic here * and feeding him with ultra good graphics.

But i guess that is how things are. I cant change that and now i learned something new.

I wont change the game though because i think it wont change anything. People got their first impression now and changing things afterwards wont do shit. Now i know better. I still think the rating is a bit unjustified, think what you want of it.

Still thanks to everybody.

Cheers!

Topic: Game Programming / WTF is wrong with the Kongregate Community?

I am angry, very angry. I made a new game and as always it got a shit-rating.

I know my games arent the best, but i put a lot of effort into them, and still
they get the rating of games like Pong-Clones where the person maybe put 1 hour of work into it. There are even papercup games with better ratings.

Are you really telling me that this deserves the same rating as a lot of unfinished/really crappy games here?

I know objectively this game is not top-tier or anything like that, but hell it deserves way better than that…..

Its just so frustrating. Its a full game. Yes, its not the easiest or best, but it surely is no 1,8 Star game.

It is getting annoying, i could have just worked on a 1-hour game and the results would probably have been the same.

Its seems like people dont take more than 30 seconds looking into it and then rating it 1-star.

Thats my 2-cents. Im very disappointed by this community. Obviously i have to make some shitty idle game again to get a better rating and views.

Bye….

EDIT: Also it seems like people dont bother looking into the Tutorials. Almost every game i put a tutorial into the games and still always the same stupid questions do appear….

I actually have the same issue with my “Payment Method” option.
Also wrote an e-mail to developer_support@kongregate.com.

Topic: Technical Support / Game name taken

Right under the game there is a “upload new version” link. Just click on that.

Topic: Technical Support / Sudden increase of gameviews.

Yeah, i basically shouldnt complain, but some strange things are happening in my account.

Two of my games went from like 500 views to 9000 views within two days. Should i be happy? I dont know, no new highscores or comments have been written. So thats kinda strange and the games were stuck on their 500 views for a couple of weeks.

Well, maybe someone can check that out? Is it a bug? Or am i suddenly famous now (just kidding).

Yeah, everyone else would be happy but i think that all sounds a little bit strange. The sudden increase of gameviews within a relative short time span.

Ps: The games i mean are DodgeDotDodge and Pixel Alien.

Topic: Technical Support / Game shows without rating although it has a rating.

So there is my problem.

When i am clicking on any of my games there is
always the section

“Other games by this Delevoper”

The games shown there are ordered by their rating (if i am not mistaken)

But when i click through the games there my new game “Idle Slayer”
is shown without any rating.(Although it has a rating) Therefore it is on the last page.

With a rating of 3.4 it should be on the first page of “Other games by this Developer” since it is on the games of mine with a better rating.

Well i hope i could express myself understandble enough : )

Like SORT GAMES by rating, views, date etc

Topic: General Gaming / Portal: A Good Game to Record?

It doesnt matter whether the game is good or not. It depends on how good your Video (or rather your ability to make a fun gameplay video)

But i would rather say, that Portal is a tad to “boring” to get a video.

Topic: General Gaming / The "What was that game called?" Thread

Ok, the game i am looking for was some kind of
a parody of an action-jump&run/shooter. You were this boy, i think even that there was a “Max” in the name.
It was a pretty crazy game. Felt a lot like Metal Slug. Also pixely style.

Topic: General Gaming / What do you think about my game?

Thank you very much for your review. (I would also totally understand it if you gave me a lower Rating :))

Yes, you are right. I think most players are annoyed by the movement. The problem for me is, since
i made the game its far to easy for me to play. I know all the “tricks” to get through the levels easilly, therefore
it often happens that the games are to hard.

Atm i am not working on a sequel (although one will come, but probably with a different name and some kinda “story”)

But i am working on another game, that i can maybe PM you then :p (Its a 7Second Mini-Game Mashup)

Cheerio!

Topic: General Gaming / What do you think about my game?

I made all the “art” myself. I know it doesnt look fantastic but i tried my best to achieve some pixely style. Had problems with the walking animation as you can see :D

Could you guys rate my game please and tell me what you think about it?

How fine are the levels designed? Is it to hard ? What kind of movement is the best in your opinion? (I tried to get some kinda Mario movement)

Topic: Game Design / What do you think about my game?

Thank you very much. Yes thats a part of this site that really annoys me. Only 117 Views and still no rating. I really dont know what i can do that more people actually click on my games. It always feels like luck not getting pushed away by all the other “games”. It would really help if they at least forbid dress-up games :D

On newgrounds i have 1800 Views and a 2.87 rating in the same time.

I know that it isnt the best game and i also know that the controls are a bit “hard”

Topic: Game Programming / Check out my newest game "Reach the toilet"

And that is why i tagged it philosophical…..

No, lol. Wow, don´t shit your pants is really fun game. Nice link^^

I think toilet humor is the kind of humor where u are either “childish” enough to like it , or not…..

Topic: Game Programming / Check out my newest game "Reach the toilet"

No, no coding at all. I mean it´s stencyl, but whatever thats not the point anyways. Graphics are all made by myself.

Well, i don´t get why people always get so serious. The game is what it is, to me. I don´t think its pretty good, but maybe a bit fun.

You know what makes me a bit angry, i have seen so many games that are simply tutorials copied 1:1 from flash/flixel/stencyl and other tools here, that get way more clicks.

I dont expect something like 10.000 clicks, but a mere 1000 would be nice just for the amount of time i put into this game, compared to many others.

I know that many people coming to Kongregate only wanna play the best of the best and that is ok for me, this game was made to amuse the player maybe for a minute max. And that was my point. Btw the controls are supposed to be slippery in some levels ;)

Still thanks for your feedback, guys.
