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

Looking for a game I played like 4 years ago, it was a retro, pixel art platformer, in which you could choose a creature, and started in a dungeon where you advance and kill other creatures, with melee ataccks, distance attacks, and many kinds of magic, depending on which creature you chose.

What made this game interesting was the vast amount of creatures to choose, from humons, to trolls, orcs, magicians, demons, animals like bats or wolves…
you unlocked each creature by killing it once, iI think. The dungeon kept changing each time you started over, and which creature appeared was random. The true goal of the game was unlocking the, I think, more that a hundred of creatures.

I think each skill of every creature had a specific cooldown time, and had varying effects, like life drain, paralyze, etc.

That sounds like Great Dungeon in the Sky.

Looking for this game I played 4-5 years ago, it was this post-apocalyptic story and you played turn-based against monsters on a dark arena made up of squares and as you proceeded you gained more characters to play with. Different characters had different fight moves and could move differently on the squares in the arena (like diagnoally or forward/backward etc). I remember the music was really nice too, there was some girl singing I think… In addition to the story mode there also was a mode where you could challenge other people and play against them. Does anyone remember it?

That sounds very much like Zening, which shut down a few years ago because they were no longer making enough money to cover the server costs. Apparently it made a big impression on the people who did play it, because I think it’s the game I’ve seen asked in this thread the most often, interestingly enough.

For a while they kept the web site up so you could at least read about the game, even though you couldn’t play it any more, but now there’s nothing there, either. Maybe they’re preparing something new?

strategy game (I think it was turn based) where you have a white landscape & different civilizations trying to wipe each other out. Each civilization worships a different type of natural disaster, which they hope to use to wipe out the other civs. Seems like the disasters/elements were fire, earthquake, flood, & ….something else. Pretty sure it was isometric.

This sounds a lot like Reprisal (although Reprisal is real-time, not turn-based).

That sounds like Roadkill Revenge. Unfortunately, the developer pulled that game from Kongregate a little while ago (for reasons that are not entirely clear), but I’m sure you can find it elsewhere if you look around.

Topic: Kongregate / A question about Kongregate's rules

I don’t know if there’s an easier way to see it, but if you click “Upload Your Game”, you can see it right there on the second screen (just enter some stuff on the first screen to see the second):

No third party payment or login systems
Kreds are the only form of payment that may be used for games on Kongregate. We’re currently testing kreds with a limited number of games; if you would like to use them in your game, please let us know. We also don’t allow account systems in new games – if you need to authenticate players, please contact us about using our API for this.

and a checkbox that you have to check to indicate that your game does not include any such feature.

I’d like greg to explain how beating stage 15 in EW6 is a medium badge. I’m at stage 8 and it’s absolutely impossible. Also, in comparison to other mediums from previous games in the series, 15 stages is more than any time before.

I’ll bet that you haven’t unlocked any more heroes yet (it’s painfully not obvious that you can do so, but you can). So go unlock some more heroes. Popo (and his units) are especially useful in stage 8, because he’s magic, and then whoever else you can afford.

Topic: Technical Support / Problems with leveling up

He’s talking about his Kongregate level, as you could see from his profile.

Anyway, are you sure you were level 49 before? It looks like the threshold for level 49 is 16380 (level 50 is 17260), so it’s more likely you went from 48 to 49.

hi dev,
i just used 4 to 5 trait catalyst and gave all to the new 7 star unit valravn. i used the in a ro. i took 10-15 sec between using all. but still all 4 to 5 gave me cast. but this so far it is needed to be bug that after using 4 to 5 tait catalyst i mean so many those things i got only cast all the time. this so uncoll. plz dev look in to this plz and help me with it :)
i m looking forward frm u guys :)

Not a bug. Cast is the only tier 1 trait that Valravn can get (strike is tier 2, camo is tier 3, attack is tier 2, and there’s no trait for EMP). So unless you’re lucky enough to roll a tier 2 or better trait, you’re getting Cast. And it looks like the odds of getting a tier 2 trait are 10% at best, so I wouldn’t expect to get one in 4-5 tries.

Alright, so there was this game where you played this person who had to basically make her/his way through this place. It was a 2-D game, (I think) and there was this person telling you the opposite of what to do. (Like “Don’t touch those spikes” when you could actually pick those spikes up to throw) I THINK it was called Deception or something that started with a “D”. If anyone knows, please reply or drop me a PM or shout.

Very close — it’s Depict1.

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

Originally posted by adv0catus:

Inevitably, badges become broken and unearnable. This is a list of such badges.

I think this list would benefit from some more diagnostic information. For instance, Asteroid Revenge III works just fine on my machine (Win10/FF40/Flash18), so it would be nice to know for what configurations it allegedly doesn’t work.

Also, on BTD2, using tab and enter is the glitch. You’re only supposed to be able to upgrade the towers once — anything beyond that is an exploit. So you could argue this belongs in the “games with cheats” category, but not its current category.

Well, it was a military-based game. There were 5 classes. 1 medic, 1 Juggernaut, 1 sniper, 1 general, and I think one mechanic? You start off in a laboratory were these black armoured guys take over and the scientist picks up an m4 and shoots them then like the sniper or something joins him and helps him. The last mission is you fight on a missile and it is almost impossible to beat.
And one of the dialogues in the jungle was
-Juggernaut: I’m hit!! -Some other guy: Its just a flesh wound go back to fighting. -Juggernaut" (Whimpering) Okay…

Sounds like Strike Force Heroes.

Topic: Global Assault: General / Squad power needs to include traits

It’s not at all right that a squad full of T2 and T3 traits currently has the same squad power as it would without any traits. Even Cast is the equivalent of one or two upgrades; something like Programmed Missile is probably closer to +10 at least.

-You and your opponent control several characters each. Objective is to eleminate opponent’s characters. One’s turn follows his opponent’s one (i cant remember if your and opponent’s turn was one double turn or they were two different turns in means of checking time).

That was Zening, which unfortunately shut down a few years ago because they weren’t making enough money to even afford keeping the servers up. It used to be you could at least read the information still on their web site, even though you can’t play it any more, but now it looks like there’s just a splash page there — I wonder if they’re working on something new?

Topic: Technical Support / Block user from rating until they reach level x

Originally posted by TheRealPip:

You can block a user rating until they finish your in game intro/tutorial.

That is wrong. Indeed, the page that you linked to says: “This must be done early, generally at the title screen or no later than character selection/creation (if that happens first thing) – it cannot be post-tutorial or after the first level” (emphasis mine). That feature is intended only so that the user will at least have to load the game in order to rate it, but not for anything beyond that.

More generally, it is not possible to block people from rating until they reach a certain criterion.

It wasn’t banned, it was just taken down by the developers because they didn’t have time to devote to it. You can read their original announcement here.

There was a robot building game and I don’t think it was on Kongregate.
It was very very , very complex , I remember it took me 2 days just to figure out how to make the robot move , you had to place pipes and generators and then you could fight other robots with yours.
And it had a long and convoluted name as well.

Well if it’s really not on Kongregate I can’t help you, but that sounds an awful lot like The Bureau of Steam Engineering.

Well, there’s a fair number of match-3 games with RPG elements, so more information would help — possibilities I can think of are Dangerous Adventure (not 2 years old though), Knightfall 2, and Elements of Arkandia (not really comic-style graphics though).

Nah. It’s nowhere near that difficulty level. Also, that’s not enough few people.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen imp’s with over 15k, could be wrong.

Sure, but that alone doesn’t mean anything in particular. A badge with a low earn count doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s intrinsically hard; it might just mean that it’s so boring that few people decide to do it, or it’s just on a game which doesn’t get played that much. Also, there are (as of this writing) 217 hard badges which are less earned than that one, so this seems like a strange place to start. Have a look at the badge spreadsheet.

It might be hard for you, but it is not really hard at all.

Please stop that. This is not what this thread is for.

Topic: General Gaming / Trying to find certain finding/hidden objects game

I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I remember the game you’re talking about, and it’s called Memohuntress. The bad news is that the game was removed from Kongregate a while ago at the creator’s request.

You could probably find it on some other less-scrupulous sites, though, if you look around.

(p.s.: There is also a specific thread dedicated to this kind of question.)
