Meh, it's alright.
The graphics are great, they are nearly the real thing. The fighting scenes are really slow and not too interesting, though. Why do the guns only fire 3-4 bullets before being thrown away? Why do the mooks just stand there waiting to get killed, not even trying to defend themselves?
It's also really short. Needs improvement, but has promise.
Verdict: 2/5, 4/10
+ Song was catchy! I can leave this running in a loop 3-4 times before getting tired of it. By the way, props on making it auto-loop, it makes the flash that much more awesome.
+ Solid animation and graphics. Nothing to say here really.
+ Moustaches? The hell? Awesome.
+ YOU THINK YOUR BEARD IS SO
- The female voice was... a bit off. It fits within the song nicely and everything, but by itself it was really aweful singing. It reminds me of Eric Cartman's Jennifer Lopez voice.
Final Words: Who made this song? You? Who did the voices (male and supporting female)? I'd like to see this info displayed in the author's comments, and I apologize if these questions have been addressed already.
+ Amazing artwork here. This is top 1% stuff you drew in the background! The fact that there is so much talent in the artwork makes the film's shortcomings all the more disappointing.
- A lame attempt at humor not only ruins the thematic element at the start. And worse, it wasn't funny.
- The main character's artwork! What the hell, man? Why is a character from Pokemon stuck into a serious horror flick? This is the single greatest flaw.
- Subtitles instead of voice acting. Given your level of talent, I doubt you'd have trouble finding a good voice actor for the main character if you are unwilling to do it yourself.
- Not scary. The pacing, coupled with the above flaws seriously draws away from it and makes it creepy - at best.
Final Words: This could easily have been top 10 all-time material, but it was ruined by some fundamental flaws. Augh!
It's an alright exercise in risk management but ultimately the game doesn't feel very rewarding.
The quickest and easiest path to geting all the achieves on hard (save Total Victory which I'm not even going to bother trying) is to ignore farming completely. It's too much of a crapshoot and takes too much time to think about and do. You want your games to be fast so you can more quickly get that one lucky run.
You are better off restarting the game until you get Land value at 15 for the first turn and selling all your land, and just keep going until you can buy Land at a low cost (preferably 5 or 6 but nothing lower than 8). And just keep flip-flopping, buying land low and selling it high whilst keeping the people fed. Disease is actually your best friend here because it results in fewer people to feed. Immigration is bad for the opposite reason, but Infestation can be a real game ender. You just have to keep playing until you get that one lucky run of high disease, low immigration/infestation and a good high-low-high-low rollercoaster on the land values. Took me about 7-8 tries to get Utopian with this strategy and each try was fairly fast. Good luck.
Game is glitchy and nonsensical. The price reduction seemed to apply to the offline watts at first, but no longer does at all. It applies to the idle watts gained and rubbing power correctly, only applies to the battery capacity for the next purchase (and subsequently reverts to the regular price), and never applies to itself. For something with no description that is certainly an inconsistent upgrade. Its also far and away the toughest to get to level 50.
The basket upgrades do not show up in the main screen, so its difficult to tell that they apply.
Rubbing power (the main unique aspect of the game) quickly becomes useless as it scales terribly. It seems like you tried to remedy this with the basket upgrades which works to a point, but I'm over 100 K/s on idle watts and rubbing barely makes an impact.
The offline watts are a nice idea but are horribly overpriced and inefficient given the "bucket" mechanic of battery power maxing out anyway. Also, what precisely is the Overnight success medal's requirement? Because if it's half a Megawatt, I've hit that number several times over.
Fairly basic but enjoyable, unique and well put together.
+Art is nothing amazing but it reminds me of retro NG games.
+Music fits nicely
+The game does cause your eyeballs to jump around a bit with the randomly appearing letters and the approaching guard.
-The game is just too basic to be fun for more than a few minutes. It's a fun timewaster for those few minutes though.
As a final note, nice gta reference with the font and busted screen :P.
Verdict: 4/5, 7/10.
Great music, very touching. You really conveyed your emotions here in an amazing way.
Thanks, appreciate the review.
