Ever felt that other reviews were a bit too generic for your tastes? Here at Theoretical Reviews we review not only on the basis of enjoyability, aesthetics, and design, but also on the basis of innovation, narrative (optional) and mechanics (in the case of PPGs).

Feel that your game is one of the following:

-Innovative?
-Highly Polished?
-Unrighteously Forgotten for the Community?

Than apply for a Theoretical review today, and our feedback could help you become the next big thing.

Theorectical Reviews are always unbiased to allow unseen talent to emerge. We encourage you not to feel discouraged by more well-known creators, and we are ready to accept any and all members with open arms.

Apply for consideration today.

Please pardon my breif abscence, and allow me to answer your various queries.

1) You must be a mainsite reviewer to jojn, simply because this shows me a decent amount of credibility.

2) When applying for review, you must create a short explaination on why your game is something special.

My game is sometihng special because it has many whacky action levels. The game concept is new and decent. It has nearly 200 view although it was featured for 5 minutes before being un-featured.

Realm Of Confliction

http://www.sploder.com/games/members/gamekid2011/play/realm-of-confliction/

Why this game is special.

The reason this game is special is because I have been told by some members that this game needs more attention and it is a pretty good game. The game has features that make the game-play more puzzle like and action like too.

19/03/2013 @Spinachie: Hey guys, we've got some great news for you. We have recently formulated a partnership with Alonessix's Inferno Reviews. This will grant you a crud ton of new features over the coming over the weeks, but let's start small.

Because of our partnership, we will be able to take more reviews per station as we can share the workload between us. Our combined reviewing skills also allow you to get the technical approach of Theoretical and the preciseness and detail of Inferno.

Enjoy guys.

9/4/2012 @Spinachie: Today, I've launched a new Micro-Review Series. These reviews will be short but sweet (500-800 Words) and will be released daily to cover games that are up and coming or strike me for some reason or another.

If you'd like to assist with these reviews, please apply to the station today.

Also, all games have been moved to a waiting list. They aren't the best, but they certainly show some promise.

Helping Hands II
Walkthrough
Well this game is based on how smart you are, how can you use the walls to help you and go through the puzzle-rooms. This game is 100% original (I hope), and it makes you think a lot. You must play this before you say something about it.
Also, I'm not recommending to the 'rarequiters', this game claims the peace and the concentrating.

From this point forth, if a review doesn't contain a description as to its worth (See above comments) it will simply be looked over.

Although it may seem a pathetic cliche at first, Neonness isn't just a game about traveling throughout green platforms and dodging red blocks: it is challenging, and only the most intrepid of gamers can attempt its arduous levels. It has a legitimate storyline and it took a lot of effort to make. I honestly think it may be feature-worthy.
