0minutes- I have managed to almost complete your game, I got up to level three and died on some mass mob attack, is this okay to review?

Rus3000- I can't seem to go under the wheel and log on the way back from the left bit.

The Land of Tryckey by 0minutes

First Impressions- 5/10
My first impressions of this game by looking at the thumbnail were, “it doesn't look very special.” This sprouted into my mind mainly due to the fact most Retro Arcade Games look similar and don't tend to play out much different either.
Once I was in the game I could feel that it wasn't identical to all those other Retro Arcade Games, and although the story was messy it ran through quite well. The game didn't feel very special to me whilst playing it, it didn't okay out exactly like similar games but it did follow the same trend.

Scoring:
Looks – 5/10
Play Style – 4/10
Creativity – 6/10




Game Play- 4.5/10
This game gives you a nice feel and does give the effect that your character is playing along by the story and can interest the gamer, but for me it wasn't enough. This was not one of those games that gripped me and made me want to keep trying until I had completed it, I am not sure whether it was the Maker's fault or the Creator's fault, but the game play seemed to be long and dragging. I never completed the game, I was killed on level three, but after trying numerous times going back through all the levels again was painful.
On your first go the game is good, it brings it's unique storyline in to interact with characters and enemies and it can get quite fast-paced at times, but as you play through the game you are almost certain to lose all your lives and have to restart all the way back at the introduction. I understand that with many Platformer games, etc., this happens, but it is the fact that the introduction feels as though it's the whole first level and doesn't grip the player.
In my honest opinion, I do not favour this game. There was not enough action, tension or exploration in it and I have felt this with a few other Retro Arcade Games. The connection between the player and the character in game was not strong and the story started to interrupt multiple fights and cause me to die whilst jumping. I understand games do need stories, but a short one-stage introduction would have been enough.
As for the fighting and collection of coins, there were many coins tossed around the map which did give you a sense of adventure, there were also a lot of enemies in your way and also not in your way; some were randomly placed. Once I had entered the second level I felt the action begin and the fighting did start to grip me, until it was lost to an over-placement of enemies.
My final thoughts on the game play would be that it wasn't gripping enough, the story dragged on too long and that the action was not strong enough. If I was to advise one improvement it would be to focus on the game more than on a storyline as this is an arcade game after all.

Scoring:
Action – 5/10
Exploration – 5/10
Impression – 4/10



Tone- 4/10
The tone of this game was a bizarre one, it had a plot based on a strange rabbit and a strange feel to it. At times it was relaxing and felt easy but at other times I felt a bit uneasy. The beginning of the game started off making you jump over lava which for me would have been a great start to the game if it had added a bit more action to it.
If I was to describe the tone in one word it would be, “Unbalanced.” This is because the game had parts were nothing was happening and parts were everything was happening, I used this word as it does describe the changing of the tone amongst the game and it's levels.
There was nothing special about this games tone, it had no scary tone to it nor did it have a tone displaying power and strength, it used more of a basic tone which changes constantly.

Scoring:
Feel – 5/10
Grip – 4/10
Impression – 3/10




Difficulty- 6/10
This game has a varying difficulty, but as I am not the best at playing Retro Arcade Games anyway, this didn't help. I have got the basic grips and although the beginning lava spawn killed me various amounts of times, it didn't feel too difficult.
Towards the end of the second level there is a charge of characters/ enemies who try and kill you, this sequence of action and difficulty is perfect. It really made me want to try and beat it, once completed you move on and find a more challenging fight with many more enemies.
The difficulty level isn't so hard that I began to feel anger towards the game, nor was it too low. In fact for me, during the battles, it was a perfect difficulty and encouraged you to develop a strategy.

Scoring:
Difficulty – 7/10
Feel – 5/10
Impression – 5/10




Originality- 4/10
In terms of general originality, this is not very original, mainly due to the fact it follows the same path most other games of it's type do. 0Minutes did, however, create a nice feel to it as you played through and this to me, paired with it's bizarre story, made up an original impression of a Retro Arcade Game.
The exotic story of a strange rabbit and it's companions is originality in my eyes, but for the actual game the story isn't too important; you can play it as much as you want or as little as you want, you can skip the messages and it still plays like an arcade game. Therefore the story doesn't help score and vital points.

Scoring:
Plot – 6/10
Play Style – 3/10
Decorations – 3/10




Please excuse me if you don't think this is of a good quality. This is my first review for a long time, sorry.

What I Think
Well, I have to say I am one to be amazed by symmetrical games, and this is actually a brilliant example of one. The game play isn't too quick, you have to be cautious of where you step and you have to check your health constantly. This game brings a nice feel to it and it's music adds to it, definitely a bright choice. In terms of action, there isn't much whilst exploring but once you find a fight it is important, it tends to be a stronger enemy and takes skill to take it out. This games one big strength is its layout and ease of playing, though this is also it's downside as there is sometimes little action, too much exploration and it's slightly repetitive at times. I didn't get far in this game but I know it sets a nice tone and it definitely got me gripped on it, a good game.

Scoring:
Game Play – 8/10
Tone – 4/10
Originality – 6/10
Difficulty - 7/10




Please notify me if you don't believe this is a good enough review.

I understand that this is a pretty tough game, so if you can't get far enough to write a long review, then you can do short; if you can't get far enough to do any of them, then don't worry, I won't be sad. ;)
