Greg, Evo Explores should be added to your to do list. It probably should have a hard for game completion (possibly a medium, but it’s long enough to justify a hard) and another medium for beating some smaller number of levels (maybe for beating level 4, since that where you meet the tape.)

So Zeus Age is unplayable in Chrome because of the Unity issue, and crashes during the start of the introduction in Safari. Why is it being badged?

Because you went back in time and shot Greg’s grandfather, preventing any badges from being made.

Because the levels parody various NES titles

I was under the impression that this was the reason Abobo’s Big Adventure wasn’t getting badges, as opposed to API or low ratings. I could be wrong (and given that Enough Plumbers and Kill the Plumber have been badged and are parodies in the vein of Abobo’s Big Adventure, I’m not sure that should be a reason.)

I’m planning a medium completion badge tomorrow for The Gatekeeper. “Rest in Hell” is probably the most obvious name, but maybe someone can come up with something better.

“Who you gonna call?” Badge?
“Are you the keymaster?” Badge?

Oh come on! FireFOX? TamperMONKEY? Don’t you have any Crow-friendly methods on how to use this?

……. ask people to join in on the forum conversation? It’s just the same people here anyways.

The regulars aren’t the problem. There are games that would already have badges if we actually had access to the badge making API. For example, I’ve been asking for Hexad badges off and on for literally a year; if I had access to the badge making API, it would probably take at most a day to get a couple of badges on that game (and that’s an extremely conservative estimate that includes some training.)

The main difficulty with getting the regulars to handle badges is having them interact with developers to add API and testing stats. I still think it’s a good idea, and that most of would do it for free (or for some trivial benefit, like a Kong Plus account or a B icon by our names in chat.)

No API, old enough that it’s unlikely to be able to add API (even with a favorable dev.)

No API, and old enough to be unlikely to add API, even with a favorable dev (they also did Coma, which has a badge.)

Originally posted by Morebadgesplease:

game called Wilt: Last Blossom which has a 3.80 rating

No API, an unfavorable dev for adding API, but not quite as old as the other games (although still old enough to be problematic.)

Originally posted by Morebadgesplease:

Silent Conversation and it has a 3.83 rating

This one actually has API, but it sort of sucks, and is old enough that it’s unlikely to add further stats via the API. Still, it’s the best badge candidate of the four.

You’ll notice a trend in my response: just having a high rating isn’t enough for badge; the game also needs to have Kongregate stats implemented via API or a reasonable potential to add them. It’s possible for Greg to convince the developer to do this, but with older games you risk the issue that the developer no longer has a way to modify the game to add in API.

I don’t understand the ‘Anaheim’ part. Are there lots of ducks in that city?

The hockey is itself a reference to the Mighty Ducks movies (the Anaheim Ducks were originally owned by Disney who made those movies.)

Be careful or you’ll discover the terrifying secret: Grumpers is actually a crow painted yellow.

Aisleen seems like a good candidate for badges. Maybe one for game completion and one for something else (a 30x combo or getting a full library seem like reasonable possibilities.)

For Starlight 2, let’s do an easy badge for completing the classic level set and a medium badge for completing the pro level set (still pretty easy, but it takes a little longer). Suggest names if you’d like.

Having gotten the medium badge, I sort of wish it didn’t exist. The main difficulty I had with the game was fighting with the controls (and at one point having all control input eaten up by something, which seemed to persist until I flat out quit Safari and started up again.) This isn’t a problem with the easy badge, when you only have to control one aspect of moving the stars. But with the pro set, it was a fairly common occurrence that I would click the middle of the picture, and the game would interpret that as “No really you are trying to rotate the entire picture rather than reorient the stars, even though that should only happen if you click the middle of the screen.”

Multitask (or possibly its sequel) would be a good game for this quest.

Much of the recent slowness is Greg being unable to figure out how to badge Cavarneer 2 (and finally giving up on it).

Current gap seems to be nobody forcing him to choose a next game to badge. Also possibly Christmas.

So what’s next in line for badges, Greg?

I’ve seen greg playing it, so yes.

If its rating holds up, Coloruid is worth a quick medium badge for completing all 16 levels. (Completing all the levels might be an easy badge; it’s not that hard.)

I don’t how difficult the medium badge for Forge of Gods is, since the game won’t let me log in while signed into my main account. I had played the game enough to get the easy badge a while back, and now it won’t let me log in while signed into my Kong account. (I can easily log in while not in my Kong account, but it takes me to the very beginning of the tutorial.)

Topic: Forge of Gods / Bugs

So, I can’t log into the game while logged into my Kongregate account. I get to the play screen (where it claims I have ID eonydl) hit play, and consistently get a “Sorry server connection failed, please try to restart the game” message.

If I try to load the game without being logged into Kongregate, I can log in, and get sent to the start of the tutorial.

I had played the game a month or so ago (enough to get to level 4), so I think I’ve just had my original account wiped from the database.

I’m pretty sure this will be an awesome gameplay and a must-have for badges. Gonna try it later.

It’s a short demo, and is at best worth a single medium.

Meh. It’s got a bug that lets you skip most of the game play, not that there was that much game play to begin with.
