[Application] [Denied =(]
« on: November 04, 2012, 03:58 pm »


Youngcaliman, we know him as the Sploder lieutenant and the man with epic games. We also know him by his three epic game library games and counting: Black Widow, Psychotic Pong 2, and Paint it Black. My username is Jmc10 and I would like to welcome you to yet another review typed by yours truly. Today I will be reviewing a game of the platformer genre created by our very own youngcaliman. Today I will be reviewing a remarkable game, that just so happens to have a special place amongst the greatest games ever created on this site, today I will be reviewing 'Paint it Black'.

For the first time ever the storyline blends well with the gameplay and helps support it giving the impression that youngcaliman put a lot time and effort into creating this splendid game. You are a little black paint drop that longs for much more so you must go on this adventure of a lifetime through puzzles and traps, through different areas to prove yourself worthy. That right there was the long storyline summed up in one sentence.

Youngcaliman is perhaps one of the greatest game makers of modern times on sploder, pumping out games at a steady rate. One of the challenges of game creating is making the game with quality, and that is something that every one of his games has. He somehow seems to come up with a new concept for every creation of his thus making his games some of the most memorable on the site. Gameplay is essentially what makes or breaks the game, the gameplay in paint it black is fantastic indeed. One of the frustrations of this game is that it takes place far above the ground, and if you just so happen to plummet to the bottom it is basically a death sentence, but luckily youngcaliman supplies an enemy or hazard to kill you so you can restart (if you have an extra life). Puzzles and traps are plentiful throughout the game and skill is definitely needed to conquer this beast. I found this game fun for the most part, the music kind of got on my nerves a bit when I kept losing though :/.

One of the things that I noticed while playing this game is that  it contains a lot of enemies which brings up another subject; enemy placement. I found the enemy placement to be done quite well, I mean there were a couple enemies placed rather bad like the mongols in the water to the right on level one for example, but other than that I would say it was done quite nicely.

Health was plentiful throughout the game. Cookies (::) almost everywhere on the earlier levels, hearts <3 and medical kits on the later ones. Constant health placement is not necessarily a bad thing, it just makes the game easier and some members do not like that, I am not one of them. Also let's not forget about how pretty the game is, that is right scenery. The scenery was great, grass, statues and more; those are the kinds of things that I love to see in a game. Some wise members once said that scenery doesn't matter, but it really does, I mean who wants to keep playing a game that looks horrible?

A common problem with these types of games is lag. Lag was actually not a problem at all in this game and I am really surprised by this, even on my most laggy computer it barely lagged.

Finally comes my favorite part of the review, the part where I tell you if this game is feature worthy or not. However before I tell you if I think it is feature worthy I must first explain what makes a platformer game feature worthy by my standards. In order for a platformer game to be feature worthy to me it must have a good feel to it for one, it must also be challenging not to difficult but hard enough to make me want to keep trying, nice difficult puzzles and traps are good too. I also like for it to have a good storyline that will draw me in and make me want to play, Scenery is a bonus. Now that I explained what I think makes a game feature worthy I will tell you my opinion on this game. Feature worthy? Yes, it contains all of the above things ergo making it feature worthy.

Scoring~
---------------
Storyline: 8.5/10
Gameplay: 7/10
Puzzles and Traps: 7/10
Scenery: 6/10
Enemy Placement: 6.5/10
Health Placement: 7/10
Originality: 7/10
Overall Score: 7.5/10


In conclusion I think that paint it black is a nice challenging memorable game that hits the feature mark. However I do not think it is Epic game library worthy, it just does not stand out enough in my opinion. My final rating for this game is 7.5/10 or 4/5, thank you for reading.

I feel as though you could have possibly gone into much more detail into the review, and also I don't think you need a big paragraph for the feature worthy part. However, I wish you luck! :)

Denied.  I feel that your paragraphs are in the wrong order.  Nobody really wants to know that much about Cali.  It's a game review, not a biography.  You don't want to mention the creator ever 3 sentences.  I also felt you were much to general with your descriptions.  You never really addressed the point specifically; you just frolicked around describing things that don't need 3 sentences and not describing things that do.
For fifty and nine he swam along just fine, a mind that’s trained to see, always would know what goes on inside, goes on in me.
