  • You probably should've joined the review game earlier, man. People willing to have their games reviewed are getting rarer! even for the big guys!
  • Hey, I'll try to get something in here @MagmaDude100 . I've got 2 games for you, so these should be able to occupy you till more come in. Here they are:

    A Little Evil: flowlab.io/game/play/1034205

    A Boy in Armor: flowlab.io/game/play/1095375

    Thanks! And good luck with the review!
  • I'll play them when I get home
  • All okay with me @MagmaDude100 !
  • Alright, @rcreger 's A Little Evil

    positives:
    I love a good old fashioned tough 2d platformer
    I love doctor who
    Having it get harder to get through each level is good,

    negatives:
    but the last level felt easier than the first
    lasers are annoying but thats just my own opinion

    Final score: 8/10 in my opinion, it was a lot of fun

    Recommendations: add a few more health packs to harder levels and make the last level challenging
  • @rcreger 's A boy in Armor

    Note:
    Flowlab bugged out with the last book and wouldn't let me proceed so I didn't get to finish it

    positives:
    I'm a sucker for fantasy things
    The story hit home from a boy who was told he can't to a boy saying he did
    great background
    awesome animations

    negatives:
    that's a lot of water
    No collectibles to make me feel like I'm REALLY progressing, can you add coins or something to have people do something more than JUST following the story, I mean the books are cool, but are part of the story

    Total score: 9/10 Awesome story

    Recommendations:
    If you both want to and can, make this into a proper steam game on either Indie version of this or using Unity or UE4 (Unreal Engine 4)
  • Thanks you for the review @MagmaDude100 ! You went pretty in depth, so I know you will be good at reviewing games! I wish you luck as more games come in! Thanks!
  • Just got done playing @Biscuit Butter 's Kid's Quest

    positives:
    I love a challenging game because it makes you want to play it more
    puzzles that require a specific mechanic that the game has
    nice (8-bit?) art, it looked really good

    negatives:
    not very responsive controls for jumping
    opinion: some puzzles were TOO hard (opinion means that you don't have to fix it but its recommended for new gamers)
    opinion: not a very well developed story (once agin, you don't HAVE to fix it)

    Total Score: 8/10

    note: i put an extra point to total score cause I'm not good at puzzle platformers

    Recommendations:
    see if you can fix the jumping issue, if you can't then it's probably because I press the up arrow to much that it's getting worn out
  • DRIVE by @JR 01

    note: Chromebook is laggy

    positives:
    I like a lot of different genres and endless runner is one of them
    Nice beginning showing of the company thing
    Amazing original art style, I haven't seen anything like it
    I love how the loading screen shows hints

    negative:
    I can't figure out what the bird patterns mean

    Total score:
    9.9/10

    Note:
    amazing, simple, and creative all of this make up an endless runner and this game has it

    recommendation:
    if you can make it less laggy for chromebooks (the only type of computer I can use in my house) then it will be a perfect 10
  • @MagmaDude100 Thanks for the review! I'll try to fix the jumping issue and might change the story.
  • I added "wisps" to them, you can collect them, but I just need to make a nice looking GUI to show how many you got @MagmaDude100 . And, also, by the way, I really like your review format! This is a great start, so well done!
  • Thanks @MagmaDude100,
    The bird patterns are the birds that in the sky that you can't touch. There are 3 patterns but 1 is super rare.

    When I finish the game, I may try to duliplicate it and take allot out to make it run easier for less powerful devices.
  • Might I remind people that I'm still open to reviews
  • what should I name this?
  • Magma Reviews? I guess it sounds a little lame...

    The Magma Manifesto?
  • This review post has now changed to the Magma Manifesto (credit to @Crigence for the name)
  • @Crigence is great at coming up with these discussion names :lol: This is the second one I've seen him make a great suggestion for one that was gratefully accepted!

    I don't know how you do it, but great work!
  • Well, now that this discussion finally has a name i'll put it up on The Crigence Critique for you!
  • Hi @MagmaDude100 Here's Intestinal Fortitude for your reviewing pleasure. Thanks! :) http://www.flowlab.io/game/play/1116845
  • Alright @todorrobot 's Intestinal Fortitude:

    positives:
    challenging is fun
    nice artwork
    interesting choice for vehicle but still cool
    controls are responsive
    nice concept

    negatives:
    OPINION: Why the intestine?
    A little too challenging

    score: 9/10
    Notes:
    It was actually hard to think of some negatives
  • Thanks @MagmaDude100 ! This is part of the larger Nina Nano game I’m developing where you are the nanotech service person working inside the body of some dude. I had vague ideas for the intestine levels but decided on making it platform style once the Flowjam was announced. I was going to make a 2-legged mech walker but I was spending too long on the walk cycle and opted for wheels.

    The level is challenging for sure. I can get through it bc ive had to play it a million times. I tried to add check points but couldn’t figure it out in the time constraints so I added what I hoped was ample blood cell health power ups.

    Thanks again for playing!!
  • Hey could yiu review my Terraria?
  • sure @meburningslime , could you send a link to it?
  • https://flowlab.io/game/play/1031394

    I would HIGHLY reccommend using html, unless you are either a god or have a lag-proof computer!
  • Alright @meburningslime 's Terraria V3.3

    positives:
    slow motion because of chromebook is both fun and recommended
    I love terraria
    I love flying by holding down the down arrow and spamming 1
    At least you were original with the terrain

    negatives:
    other than lag, my only issue with this game is that you don't tell people what 1 and 2 do

    The final score is: 9.5/10

    Notes:
    This game was so much fun, I would prefer sandbox games over only objective games anytime because of the fun and the creativity that can happen
  • Thanks! Oh, and by the way, did you find the 3 floating islands? And did you get tovhardmode?
