Title: Review & Feature Center [Back In Business]
Post by: Bricc on January 28, 2019, 07:42 am
Welcome to the Review & Feature Center

I really want to keep this board as organised as possible, and one way I want to do that is by creating a place for you to ask reviewers and editors to check out your game - all in one place. This is currently an experimental system to see if this will work with a review and featuring station mixed into one and is subject to be changed. Also keep in mind that this is not an official system. Reviewers and editors, you are free to start up your own, however you are also free to help out here.

How to request your game

We came to a conclusion that you may only be looking for a feature check or a review scan rather than both. To satisfy this, you must fill in the very small form below and post it in this thread. You can also request both. Only request your own games and one game at a time.

Link to your game:
Review scan, feature check, or both?:
Video/walkthrough (if applicable):

Note that by requesting a game here, you are not guaranteed a review nor are you guaranteed a feature. This just allows reviewers/editors to receive requests to check for these things.

Reviewers & editors

There are no "staff" for this center; if you have one of the badges and you see someone requesting a review/feature, you can check out the game. Let the user know what you will be doing with their game (eg. feature, review, both or neither). You will then be added to the log in the post below.

Rules

If you do not follow these rules, you will be disallowed from using this center for a period of time. Once banned, reviewers and editors will no longer view any games you've requested via this thread.

1) Don't pretend to be a reviewer or editor and mislead someone in this thread.
2) If you don't get that review or feature you wanted, don't complain or start drama.
3) Only post responses to the form in this thread. Reviewers and editors are the only exception, where they may respond to requests.
4) As stated previously, only request your own games!
5) You may only request one game at a time. Once your request has been seen to, you can fill in the form again with a new request.

Unchecked requests

These requests have been seen by me but haven't been dealt with by the appropriate badge holder (eg. an editor for someone who requested a feature).

Denied (?). I'd argue that Skull Creek is better than this tbh. It definitely has some nice moments but ultimately it's brought down by some poor placement at times. Swordclimbing over lava is never a good idea, especially when pathways are narrow like that. It almost feels like things have been placed more to frustrate the player then enhance the game at times. The game also felt like there was too much swordclimbing, and it started to feel tedious later on. The boss in the second level also felt like it could've been executed better imo as I was just jetpacking on top of a rocky, getting a few hits on my whip before it hit back and repeating until I eventually got glitched out the map.

That's how we do it. ;)

I'm not yet an editor so I can't give you a feature scan so we'll have to wait for someone else. :P

I'm going to abstain on this one. The problem I have is that while the idea is nice it's quite repetitive and slow. I beat it but on my first playthrough I glitched on level 6 (It stopped loading, so not your fault) and had to replay it. It didn't really feel like there was any replay value and I had felt myself losing interest by the point where I glitched out, so replaying the game was a bit on the tedious side. If someone else wants to feature it I won't complain but personally I didn't feel like it was worthy

My problem is if it starts off too difficult then you wouldn't be able to get the hang of it. I could adjust the later levels to be more difficult though. Anyway, thanks! :D

It's not a difficulty problem, it's just that after about 5 levels or so it just felt like I was doing the same thing every level and because of how slow it was it didn't really leave me with much desire to keep going other than to say I beat it

I see. Truth be told I don't know how I'd change this with the way this game's concept is. I mean I could add a fourth visualizer bar but that's not really adding anything new. :P

I'm not really sure either. You could maybe increase the speed of everything in the later levels or add a block that requires 2 different hits at the same time? Idk those are just a couple of ideas

I will speed up the later levels, that's easy to do. As for the one that requires 2 hits at the same time, that would basically be the same as how it is now when there is a group of 2 at the same time.

Sped up some of the obstacles at the end and tweaked the timings so that now some of them are slow and some fast. Also a few visual fixes. Not sure if this will bump it up to a feature-worthy standard but oh well.

I'm sorry but I can't get past level 5. Every time I fail there (Because I'm bad) and the game refuses to load. The game isn't exactly bad, but when I think of Sonic I often think fast and this is quite slow. The gameplay itself is ok but I wouldn't say it's anything more than ok. I'd say I'd let another editor try this but whether they will I have no idea

Feature scan? If so, denied. This game requires you to be 100% perfect and doesn't seem to offer any leeway whatsoever. The actual gameplay that is there feels unfair and isn't very fun to play.

I know I made you change a lot in testing, but after considering it I'll have to deny this. The idea is nice but the gameplay feels like there's quite a bit of luck involved sometimes. It also feels like the levels are quite bare in terms of the gameplay and I still dislike the final boss.

Title: Re: Review & Feature Center
Post by: seanthechinaman on February 24, 2019, 08:36 am
I won't be reviewing Shoot Land. I haven't been able to get too far because the long, empty halls mixed stewed in my own lag stifled any enjoyment I was having.

Empty space is often used to build suspense, but there's nothing you're suspending, and it doesn't relieve the player as there is no tension beforehand. The player is just left waiting to play the game. You didn't have to add a crazy action sequence at the very start to reel me in, but some more narrative tension would have been interesting, even the king wasn't too invested in the story.

This DID remind me to finish my review on Color Bound though. I deleted my first draft so I'll have to take notes again.

Feature and review, I work hard on this game.
I'm going to deny this for a feature. While the presentation shows potential in the future, the gameplay felt too standard for me. A lot of what I was doing felt like I was just going left to right and jumping over a few enemies. In future I would recommend experimenting with objects  more and focusing less on having combat in corridors to try and create more interesting sequences. I do believe this is getting a review from Seanthechinaman so he will probably go into more detail.

I'm not going to feature it but I'm going to tell you what I didn't like so you can improve in future games

The scenery could be improved, the use of default blocks makes the game look a bit ugly and doesn't really do it any favours. Try using custom tiles and decoration to make your games look more appealing
Don't like the placement of the 2nd green teleporter, it feels awkward burning the meltblocks and the teleporter doesn't really add anything but frustration.
Not sure what's happening with the ninja and the switches here but it didn't seem to make any different to gameplay and felt unnecessary. Most of the switches in this game felt like they were unnecessary and just there for the sake of being there.
Don't like the sword climbing part either with the woodposts. It's fine in moderation but this part here is excessive imo. Maybe a better solution would be to have a ladder about half way up?
I also had barely any grapple, which was a bit of a problem for the room after the grapple platforming section as I had none left. It may have been your intention to backflip out of this area though (Which is how I got past) but idk. If so ignore this
I slipped on the ice part and got pushed into a wall by an enemy where I failed, then I kept messing up the swordclimbing and gave up there. This ice part felt a bit unfair to me to have this far into a game as it's quite easy to slip and lose everything. Couldn't really see where to go past this point but idk could just be me

Denied. The game was very short and didn't really have enough to it. The key battle (Which was the best section imo) at the top can be completely avoided without problems. The lower portion of the map with the blue key battle didn't really do anything for me. The ending was also underwhelming as I was collecting the health while invisible thinking there would be a bigger battle ahead only for there to be a crystal and the game abruptly ended, while I was still invisible

I'm gonna abstain on this one. I really liked level 3 and the look of level 4, but felt the other levels had some issues with flow. Level 2 was the worst offender for this, as it felt like there was a lot of backtracking just to do simple tasks, and it felt a bit unnecessary. I also wasn't a fan of having platforming over lava in the last level. However, if another editor disagrees and thinks it's worthy that's fine

I read everything, thanks for your advices! As for the story, it is a sequel to an unreleased part of the game that I decided to make a prequel. (I'm going to release it after this) My goal is to make everyone confused right now. After I release the prequel, it will continue with the current story.

Boom Hil had a great concept behind it, and was fun too, if it were polished and packaged as a game rather than a proof of concept I would have featured it as well.

By the way Ethan, Moustachemachine having no featured games shouldn't decide whether or not he can hold the opinion that games are feature worthy. Everyone can, but the only people who can act on that opinion are Editors.

I'm not doing reviews but this is not feature worthy. It's plagued with design flaws. The game feels like a switch hunt with awkward level design, half the time I just scanned the whole map until I found what I had just triggered. Add in invisible switches placed in weird areas and it's not fun. Also, why is this destroy all enemies? You've made a game where it is awkward to destroy every last enemy, yet you've not put a crystal or anything to mark the end.

Abstain for feature. Not a fan of the way you used turrets or hotblocks that the player was forced to touch. There was also a lack of health and some questionable placement choices (Having a random firetroll after the hotblock platforming over lava fall down and trap me kinda killed my motivation to keep trying)

One of the problems I have in your game is the fact that it's an awkwardly executed switch hunt, you would have to change a lot to fix that and being honest with you I think taking that as a learning experience starting a new game from scratch would be a much better option

The problem is the start of the game is deadly hard because it's poorly designed. The switches are way too close to each other (Making this section incredibly tedious unless you cheese it with grapple), followed by bots that can potentially push you off and some lava platforming with trap doors. That isn't fun at all. It's just absurdly difficult for the sake of being difficult. Instead of thinking "how can I make this fun" you've thought "how can I make this as hard as humanly possible".

In fact, all I thought was "How Can I make it feature-worthy", and also, if you'd like, I would add a second life and have the checkpoint after the perm sequence :)

Sure, while you're at it you should open out the perm sequence. Maybe just move the blocks to the left and put bigger gaps between the perms. As it is it's too claustrophobic and it's not really enjoyable because of that

Nah, I got further than that and im not as salty as that, but whenever I gave legit criticism, you made up some excuse and gave some reason that someone else said it was good, but never listened to what any criticism said. Why would I review a game that has a lot of flaws, and tell you how to improve when you say it's my fault?

Featured. It was well presented and had some interesting puzzle moments. I actually enjoyed playing it which is very rare for an algo. The only real issue I had was the maze doors glitching if took damage or moved (Not sure which and how because this doesn't usually happen)
