A review of " Little Boy" by mat7772.

Game type: Platformer.

Written by Gerald123.


Opening quote: Little Boy. This title make me think about the risks you have if you are little. The life is difficult, you have to fight to arrive on what you want.
This game has won the Weekly Contest, get featured and had a lot of views. I have played different games but this is the best. Why I have chosen this game to review? Read and find out.


Review: Little Boy has a lot of views that makes this game famous. The first thing you do before you play, you see a interesting icon of the game. It's a little boy on a tree. Let's talk about the game.

Story: He is a little boy, in fact, eight years old. He has no idea what his name was, because his father died before he was born, and his mother died after birth. He can remember that he is just been called little boy. After his mum died, the citizens in the village raised him. They didn't dare to name him, because they believed it was a disrespect to name another child that wasn't theirs. He slowly grew up, and at the age of five, he was doing light work, planting crops and harvesting mostly. Then one day, the volcano in his village rose. He didn't think it was much, after all, the mayor ordered the council to block off the magmas path. But it rose again, and then spurted. At the time he saw many people dying. So he flew away from the village, into a big world and a big adventure. But can a little boy really make it somewhere where he can live? Will the challengers be to tough to face?

Game Play: I have played so much games that are similar with each other but this seems different. It's not too unique but the traps, story, level designs make this one of the Epic Games. All we know that the player is the "Blockhead" like we call him, but in this game his outfit adapted to the scenery.

Level Designs: Mat7772 crafted all the designs and the arena. This game includes new themes, new ideas and traps. The most important thing on Platformer is the background, tiles and the light. If you append this in one you have created an epic game. This is what mat7772 have done. If you see, the castle is made by bricks tiles, the ship looks great. The background is same as the tiles.  Some levels were not perfectly designed though in my opinion. But if you can reach to the final levels, you will see a brilliant scenery and design of trees. Anyway, this game impressed me.

Traps: You thought that it was a peace game? You are wrong. This game is full of traps. After you left the village you will get shocked. For some poeple, traps are the worst thing the game have and they don't like it, but you got to try. To reach the end you should have a strategy or a technique. Some of traps are burst tile, closer that makes you run faster. I must say that Mat7772 made a great job.


Power ups/ Enemies and Hazards: I have to describe this with two sentences. Power ups was a few but in the right place and in a right time. Almost all the enemies was on this game, adapted to his habitat and hazards was lethal.


Conclusion:

Story: 9/10.

Game play: 7/10.

Level Designs: 8/10.

Traps: 8.5/10.

Power ups/ Enemies and Hazards: 7/10.

[Overall]: 8.5/10.

Mat7772, I really enjoyed playing this game. If you decide to make a sequel will be great. This game is entertainment for all so you must play this game, if it is anybody who hasn't played this game.


Thanks all for reading.

They're taking long cause they're deciding. That shows how good of a chance you have. So good, it's almost 50/50, usually it's denied, denied, denied.

It may seem a little unfair if I'm judging on someone who's reviewed my game, but you've been waiting for such a long time. Denied. You need to go into more detail and give some constructive criticism. Also, the story paragraph is not needed unless you don't judge or comment on the story

I'm going to elaborate for mat here since that was the same response I've seen for like 5 reviews.

Your review was like an autobiography.  "I played the game, I saw these, if you did this, etc.". Review the game, not you playing the game.  This isn't a story.  It's a review.
