I played a game about 5 years ago where the player shifted between the yellows red, yellow, and blue to overcome obstacles. I’m pretty sure it was a stick figure as the character. Does anyone know what game I’m talking about? This has been driving me crazy.

It’s not quite a stick figure, but Hue Runner is another possibility.

Played a game a while back on Kongregate, was fun, but didn’t save it.

What I recall – anime style group game, the main character is apparently a dragon or something, though looks like a person. Meets a number of folks, a thief (in green, as i recall), this one guy with Gaston’s vanity and the intelligence of a rock. I believe there was a fishing minigame, and I believe there was a section where one could listen to the various music tracks.

Any help would be appreciated.

Crystal Story II. Enjoy!

Topic: General Gaming / New MARDEK RPG

This is great news! I would be happy to back it on Kickstarter or Steam or whatever medium you choose, but mostly I’m just looking forward to the chance to play Mardek again!

Okay. So there was this hilarious game that I think had the word “Quest” or “Adventure” in the title. There were probably four or five in the series, and they were each about 5-6 minutes long. What I remember is that it was very pixilated, and you played this average guy who had to go on ridiculously random quests. I think it used keyboard arrow controls. The main villain in the game was this dude named Thaddeus, who was the twin brother of the main character. He was super evil and always tried to get in the main character’s way. He had some sort of magical power. Also, whenever Thaddeus attacked, the main character would yell “Thaddeussssss” in this really weird voice. I also remember that they would fight in really random places, like the hospital and a volcano. I’m fairly certain the game was intentionally stupid, but hilarious none the less. Anyway, if you remember/know of the game title, PLEASE let me know! I’ve been looking for a little while. Thanks in advance~

Rey’s Quest, maybe? Seems to fit, but I haven’t played the game myself so can’t say for sure.

Hi. A few of years ago there was this turn based RPG-esque/strategy game that I played and thought it was in my favourites but it isn’t and I can’t remember its name. The game was story heavy, had a bunch of episodes and also featured a multiplayer mode.

In game/battle (you only had cutscenes and battles), the theme was some sort of fantasy, thought it wasn’t in the cutscenes. The cutscene is about this chick that seems to be hospitalized somewhere, then she has these “dreams” (actually, the battles in the fantasy world). In this dream world, she meet a bunch of other people who seem to be i the same hospital and having the same dreams, and it seems soem of them are in comma or just locked there. There is a guardian angel/tutor sort of character that turns out to be the real vilain, some sort of virus-y thingy that the protagonist had created years ago who became sentient.

There is also this thing about, while being trapped into this dream state of things, her mind is actually inside some sort of robot body in the real world (and so are the other human characters that she meets). The thing is that the real world things that they see appear as these “fantasy” interfaces to their robot bodies.

The gameplay itself followed a control squeme similar to games like finalfantasy tactics (movement within a grid, turn based).

Zening. Unfortunately the game shut down a while ago; all that’s left is the old web site, and most of the links there are broken. It’s funny, because the game didn’t last very long because it never got very popular, but it pops up pretty frequently in this thread, so I guess it made a strong impression on the people who did play it.

Thanks! I should add that this is FF 37.0.2/Win7, if that’s useful information.

Topic: Technical Support / Muting broken in game rooms?

Ever since the introduction of guild chat in Global Assault (and thanks for the neat feature, by the way!), it seems like muting in the general Global Assault rooms isn’t working any more.

Specifically: I start out in the guild room, press the tab for the game chat room, and I can see people I had muted chatting. Their names are still crossed out at the bottom of the list; it just isn’t doing anything.

EDIT: OK, it looks like after I spend a few minutes in the game room, the muting starts working again, but it’s still kind of weird to have that period at the beginning.

So the game I’m looking for was on Kongregate in 2013, but I can’t find it here anymore. It was a online card game thing that was a single player mode against an AI, and the playstyle was sort of like Magic the Gathering. The setting was a superhero school and you fought supervillians. There were four classes of playstyle and I think one of them was Firestarter and another was Strength? I have a badge for it on Kongregate an easy one called Freshman Five but it doesn’t include a link to the game or a name. Please help.

That’s Legacy of Heroes, but the game was shut down at the end of 2013. Pretty much all that’s left is the wiki.

Topic: Global Assault: General / Simple suggestion: use average instead of total SP

Well, in the current system, a squad with one fully upgraded T7 unit is ranked as weaker than a squad with 8 unupgraded T1 units, which is completely ridiculous, so yes, this is still an improvement even in that case.

But people aren’t running squads with only one unit anyway (except to screw people in bounties). For more realistic squads with 6-7 units, average is way more representative than total.

Topic: Global Assault: General / Simple suggestion: use average instead of total SP

I have a small request: why not, instead of displaying an opponent’s total Squad Power, show the average SP (i.e., total divided by number of units) instead? That way, you get a fair representation of the enemy’s power even if they’re running a short squad, and also you get a fair reward from bounties regardless of squad size.

I can’t see any obvious disadvantages to doing this, and it should be about the easiest thing in the world to code (heck, you don’t even have to worry about division by zero, since you can’t have a squad with zero units anyway). Thoughts?

Topic: Kongregate / 4X games on Kongregate

Yeah, 4X is a genre which doesn’t seem to be represented very much in web games. The closest I can think of is Rebuild (and its sequel, Rebuild 2), but that’s all I can come up with offhand.

Topic: Technical Support / Was this fair?

Forum reports can take a while to work their way through the system, so if you get a silence for inappropriate posting, it’s not necessarily for things from the last day, but could be a few days or even a week or so old.

I see a rather large chunk of removed posts in your recent history, so it wouldn’t surprise me if it were related to that.

I remember playin’ this one game on here, it was a turn based RPG, and you had this town were you could build buildings that added more of these little doll things to your disposal and buildings which unlocked and upgraded classes. And the whole story was that you had to go up this tower filled with these machine type enemies and you had to kill all the bosses. It looked fairly steampunk and the entire color scheme of the game was very brown and neutral. I dunno what else to say, I can remember the gameplay well I just can’t for the life of me remember the name. It apparently was taken down from here, so i’m curious as to if it still exists on the net.

That’s The Grinn’s Tale, and nope, it’s gone completely (which is why it was removed from Kongregate). Pretty much the only thing that’s left is the wiki.

Topic: Global Assault: General / Short deck explained - a beginner's guide

Originally posted by Tolonges:

For normal PVP, perhaps the devs should just display the opponent’s max possible SP instead of current squad SP? Max possible SP is supposed to factor into matchmaking anyway, doesn’t it?

I also have nothing against short decks, in a game that allows it. It is often a smart choice, as you said. Quality trumps quantity in most cases.

Short decks that screw with bounty event scoring is a problem, of course, and had to be addressed. That is an issue with the flawed scoring system for the event, rather than short-decking imo.

Or even simpler, just display (total SP)/(number of units). Easy, quick, solves the problem, probably could be implemented in one line of code.

Topic: Global Assault: General / which equips to use?

I find that the best way to answer this question is to think about it this way: when you drop this unit onto the battlefield, what are you dropping it for? Then make that thing better. In most cases, this is an obvious answer: Tridents should have Razor Ammo, Zeuses should have Titanium Plating, Dirges should have Infrared Tracking, etc. For some, it depends on how you use the unit: if you’re generally using your GEs primarily for their attack, use Razor Ammo, and if you’re using them for their strike, use Seeker Missile. That depends on your playstyle.

Would ever deliberately register an account with someone else’s email address, sure. But as xkcd can tell you (and I can confirm), if you have a reasonably common email address, you’ll end up with a bunch of other people’s email, and your typical 13-year-old is not exactly known for their attention to detail.

Not, of course, that there’s really any solution to this problem, other than magically getting people to pay attention when they’re entering their email address.

there is a problem.

Sorry, but you still don’t know what you’re talking about.

The original poster is asking how to transfer their own save file. This is entirely reasonable, if you want to move your file so you can continue your game on your new computer, or your laptop, or at work, or just to back it up, and there is absolutely no problem with this. Any developer or admin would agree.

If you’re using someone else’s save file to get badges that you didn’t earn, then yeah, that’s cheating, but even then no one is actually going to care. (And I would say, even then, that it’s OK to use someone else’s file if you’re not doing it to get badges — for instance, if they’ve unlocked the Super Mega Sword in their file and you want to see what it’s like.)

i wouldn’t recommend doing this at all.

1) if the dev of the game found out about it, you will get into serious trouble.

if you want to transfer your save games or anything of that sort, ask the dev for permission first.

It was a space game where you had a platform and where you put turrets and upgrade them and space fighters attack you.
In the middle was the control centre.I know that there was a girl who worked at one of our opponents and now was there to help us.
Any idea?

Sounds like it could be Enigmata: Stellar War, or maybe one of the other games in that series.

That sounds like (still) The Grinn’s Tale. Unfortunately they shut down the servers for the game about a year ago, so it was removed from Kongregate (and everywhere else). Pretty much the only thing still left is the wiki.

Was it maybe A Duck Has an Adventure?

Steampunk style game. You had a village you built buildings. Mines and sawmills i remember most. You can level them up and wait a longer amount of time the higher the levels. You would ise the resources from them to craft weapons and armor to try and climb a tower. I think it had 100 levels? It had a great storyline i never finished. I think the main character had amnesia. Your battle party in the tower consisted of 3 or 4 i think. This was a few years ago so my memory is fuzzy. Thanks for any replies though.
