imp2 – Theifer O’Greedy
Personally a standard concept for me, a platformer with some elements of collecting. Fits the theme well. The concept of getting heavier was interesting, but I felt that it wasnt fully utilized. Perhaps making it more puzzle based and less of a skill jumping platformer? Controls were really slippery as well, making it really frustrating to make certain jumps.
Elyzius – The Proper Care and Feeding of Your Demons
First thing instantly apparent. Great art! Got confused abit about how to actually play until I read the description. I think I managed to break the game though. It seems to be stalled without me being able to click anything. (I think I was randomly clicking around the board and that it read me trying to swap 2 gems on the board?)
Alright a smoother run 2nd time around. Interesting concept for me, but as others have stated it was very reliant on luck. Would be interesting to see more varied styles of attack, as well as more strategy in choosing which sigils to take. (Such as activating certain special abilities of demons that have different effects, both on the enemy and on the board itself.)
VBCPP – Mr. Collecter
Seems like something to demonstrate the act of collecting rather than it being a game itself. No particular objectives or instructions.
gobologna – Cat Burglar
Loved what you were trying to do here, but for me the enemy seems to have too far a vision for me to be able to dodge it effectively, considering it was the first level as well. Good art style though.
I_love_you_lots – Collectron
Great concept and nice art. Fits the theme and uses a unique mechanic as well. Was a little too short though. Overall, it’s really how far you can take this and the introduction of other mechanics that go well with the one you have to make it a good game.
Gameplay was pretty standard with it being a platformer shooter. Not a big fan of pixel art but it looked pretty good.
nutter666 – BodyBagger
Nice graphics, with even an opening comic to boot. I was excited getting into the game, but got bored around the 2nd night.
Great concept, and can definitely be expanded further. Some suggestions:
- Upgrades that help in collecting.
- Different parts collected makese the monster stronger in different ways, rather that it being like a currency. (E.g Arms increases attack.)
- Shorter levels (Felt too long without any variations.)
- Variety of monsters to build.
I would play this in its finished and polished state. Keep going!
Kewry – Hunting Sim
Not a bad attempt, but overall in its base it’s an idle game. Not to say that there’s anything wrong with idle games, but there’s really not much to play other than just waiting, and adding elements to it is mostly in the forms of a feeling of progression rather than gameplay, so I cant really suggest much ways to improve it other than more content. For me it didn’t really fit the theme.
BadEgg – Klecter
Not bad. I think that it fits the theme really well. I think for me utilising the theme is about that element of collecting, and what you gain from that collecting, other than being a win condition. So in this game you need to collect to shoot. Don’t collect? You die. Simple.
As for gameplay it’s alright. Could be good with more varied enemies and powerups.
Russpuppy – Photo Collection
Nice idea, very innovative concept. Love to see a game utilizing this concept, with an objective. (Such as a muder mystery, detective kind of game.)
FadiLoutf – Forest Of Death
Some nice 3d graphics, but pretty lacklustre in terms of gameplay. As others have mentioned, zombies take too much hits to kill, making it more effective to just run and grab the parts, turning it into a fetching game.
MrHasuu – Surviving in the Wild
That was an interesting idea. I ate the weiner the first time around so I ended up getting stuck there.
In the end the game felt like just walking and eating to maintain your hp to progress. Wished there was more to that eating concept.
