[Application]Taking The Wrong Path
« on: January 12, 2013, 07:33 pm »
~Introduction~

Hello There,Today I will be reviewing Chloride's Game SkyPath,Ever since I joined I have heard Many things About him Good And Bad,Most Where Good And I Had fairly high expectations For Him,Did he live up to them?

~GamePlay~

The game Was very interesting from the start,As I could see Chloride was A very Talented game maker,So lets see what I thought about the gameplay,The puzzles Throughout The Game were frustrating And Challenging,But that Is what I am looking for In A Puzzle Platformer.

The placement of the Enemy's Were Decent But sadly not At Its Best,However It was A different story with the placement of the Tiles,All the tiles were perfectly placed and there was No missing tiles or Misplaced Throughout the game.

The Scenery Was Excellent for A puzzle Platformer,As many puzzle platformers these days Do Not have much scenery Unlike this,Overall though The GamePlay Was Frustrating And Challenging Which is A Good Thing,There was A Few minor mistakes about the game Such As The colour of the Tiles And The Enemy Placement.

~Conclusion~

My final thoughts on this game,The Tile placement was very interesting And I Was Amazed how Perfect Chloride Got the tiles placed.The way you Could Not get Anywhere was challenging,So my final thoughts on this certain Game were Very Good.

~Report Card~

Challenge~4.5/5~The Challenges for the game was extremely difficult And Frustrating.
Placement~5/5~The placement for the game was spot On And There was No mistakes.
Puzzles~3/5~For Puzzle Platformers They need To confuse the brain,Which this game did not do with myself.
Traps~3.2/5~As it was A bit like A maze There was not much traps.
Scenery~3.8/5~Although The low Rating The Scenery was impressive,Considering Most puzzle platformers Do not have much scenary.

~Overall~

~18.5/25~SkyPath was nicely made,And I feel As If Chloride Has A Very Bright Future If He continues Making Excellent games like This.

Stop Posting Like this. Sometimes you post a word with a capital, sometimes you don't. What's with that?
Anyway, the review was nice but it felt like it needed something more, it was quite boring, no offense. xD You simply need to fix it up, add more details, it'll be much better and interesting. I saw some quality in this review, but it's just not it. But yeah, good luck tho. =)

Meh, it was an alright review. tbh, I think it's too short, and you could have covered something more about the game. You should also stop making random words in the middle of the sentence start with a capital letter. Other than that, it was okey.

You obviously haven't read the rules. Here's a direct rule from parry's reviewer recruitment thread-
6) DO NOT GIVE ADVICE IF YOU AREN'T A RECRUITER.

Here is your proof. In the last comment Mechanism G clearly states that reviewers can give advice.  ;D

Please keep your advice to a minimum though.  Usually reviewers try an play god and give tons of advice and 3/4 of it is bad/useless.  Keep the input low; try and make it what you think is the most important.
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.

First of all, what are you correcting? I thought you were correcting this;
"Do not give advice unless you are recruiter."

I now know it should be "Do not give advice unless you are a recruiter".
