I would like to say this is a good effort, but it really seems as if you haven't made an effort at all.
The initial problem I have with this submissions is that Windows ME hasn't been relevant in well over a decade, and we've had two disastrous Windows Operating Systems since then (Vista and 8) that you could have made fun of, but you went with a severely outdated joke about an OS that a decent chunk of people won't even remember. ME was, after all, over a decade ago.
The best advice I can give to this is that you need to spend some time on writing something compelling, or consistently funny, or at least with a nice punchline, and then put the effort into doing it well. I get that you're probably new to Flash, or whatever program was used to make this, but that's only an indication that you, like so many other new animators here, need to spend time learning and practising.
The jokes were half-arsed, the additions poorly edited in, the lifted commercial was extremely low quality, and there was no momentum. As a premise, I feel like this had a lot of potential, but it was squandered on a lack of effort, and, unfortunately, although I feel horrible for doing this, I can't see merit worth even half a star.
Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I think this was kinda rushed, so I might remake it or make fun of something else in the near future.
Wonderfully pointless. Delightfully silly. Genius execution.
Gets five stars from me, any day.
To be quite frank it's pointless. The animation is very sluggish, entire messages written dot by dot, and that's annoying in itself. There's no play button, and none of the segments have any point. As such there's just nothing to actually entertain. If you're going to make a movie it needs a plot. Even if that plot is a guy running round killing thousands of people in ridiculous ways, it's better than watching a picture of a kitten get paint-style airbrushed over and over.
It's not susposed to have a point! It's just a slideshow of the things I've made in flash so far. I'll delete it. Besides, I am a beginner when it comes to flash.
I like the premise of the game, and while I felt the controls were a little laggy, overall I enjoyed playing the 25 levels available here. I'm not sure whether I'll download this for my phone, but that's by the by.
However, there seems to be this growing trend of calling a set of levels a tutorial without any actual explanation, or just having nothing and hoping the user figures it out. In this case, it was relatively simple to figure out, but I felt that the total lack of any explanation whatsoever was a major low point on this game, and there was far too little content available without downloading the full game, essentially making this an advertisement, and as such, I don't feel I can give any more than two stars.
If I do choose to download the android version, I may give a more positive review on Google Play, but I won't be doing so here.
I honestly found, even in realistic, that the game seems programmed to be impossible. A virus has appeared in India that causes coughing and no other symptoms? Better declare a curfew, shut down public transport, waste funding on a vaccine for this almost entirely harmless disease, and close shipyards and airports worldwide!"
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the game, and have managed to beat it once or twice, but it has some real massive faults.
Old concept, but good concept, and makes for some very enjoyable games.
This game is well programmed, and largely well animated, but I don't feel that I can give this more than a 2.5 for some key reasons.
No new elements seem to be introduced over levels. Certain blocks that have to be cleared, or a time limit to clear a certain amount, or something else to add a new layer of challenge to the game beyond the increasing target score is vital to keep a game like this fresh and playable past a few levels. This game lacked that, and as such I found it to become boring very, very quickly.
The score guide at the bottom of the screen was something I've not seen before, and I thought that was a very nice touch.
The main thing that struck me, however, was that, with the beautifully done block clear/fall animation, you didn't include an animation for the blocks moving sideways. I found that rather jarring, and it really caught me off-guard. It also went a long way to ruining the professionally made feel of the game, which is a big no-no as far as i'm concerned.
Additionally, while seasonal games doubtlessly have a certain charm to them, I find them a little irritating, as I know that past Hallowe'en this game will just be another block-matching game with an irrelevant theme. As such, I apologise, but i've taken off half a star for that as well.
To summarise: The game was well-made, and in spite of the cardinal sins committed, I enjoyed playing it, but its extended playability was limited and I know that with the evident skill you've displayed, you could have done better.
Nothing more to say than awesome. Unfathomable cycle of life has always been one of your best, and this new version is no exception. Kudos.
What can i say? It's absolutely Awesome. Going on my iPod. Hell Yeah.
Wow, Wow, Wow
I absolutely love all your music. In the description you stated "At least it's starting to sound like a proper song now." I disagree. ITS BRILLIANT! Anyway, i've downloaded this, so i'm off to download more of your stuff. Keep up the good work.
OH i almost forgot, you ought to send a demo pack off to some record labels, you could make millions with the sorta talent you've got.
