Good job

great job on making something creative out of the theme you were given. Music, graphics and programming were good. The gameplay is okay. It doesn't have much lasting appeal and could be more expansive.
The idea is very creative though. I also like that there's kind of a story to it.
Good work for one weekend.

MonoFlauta responds:

thanks! glad you like it, we did our best :)

nice game

Graphics, programming, music and voice acting were all good. Had a nice simple storyline and gameplay. It was quite short, but you guys did a good job for 72 hours.

MonoFlauta responds:

Thanks, without time limits the sequel will be a lot better


This is quite an addictive and fun game to play. The difficulty level is just right. Graphics and music are light-hearted and fun. I like that the game is a learn and improve experience. I've played 3 times so far and have gotten quite a better score each time. The medals make it very replayable. The highscores button doesn't seem to work though. But other than that it's a nice, simple, fun game.

Duderuud responds:

Thanks! And also thanks for addressing that highscore button bug, it is fixed now!

not bad

The graphics aren't too good, but they aren't really bad. The music/sfx were a pretty good choice. It's a simple game, but fun to play. The clouds were almost annoying. A better background could've been some varied clouds in the distance, scrolling slower than the foreground. It's pretty decent for what it is, a simple christmas game good for killing time.
As for the difficulty of the game, it's not difficult. Which is a good thing for me :)
It isn't stupidly easy though, which is also good. Maybe a 100 combo or all presents medal would've added more challenge to the game.

Manly-Chicken responds:

Well the clouds are like that to show that your not falling at 1 mph. But anyways, thank you for the review!

challenging or frustrating?

I think it's somewhere in between. But it's leaning towards the "I don't know what having rusty knives pushed through my eyes feels like, but I assume it feels better than this" side.

I just want to say, i did infact finish the game, without even crying. It was very challenging but at times depressing. The later levels (I'll get to the last two soon) were quite brutal. I did however, like level 26 (I don't remember any other late levels too well). It was challenging but by no means did it make me want to kill kittens. I knew I could beat it and it took some skill, but did not take pixel-perfect timing and 500 deaths.

I finished with about 1800 deaths. At least 1000 of those were from the last two levels. By the way, the deaths only shows the first 3 digits of your death count. Trust me it's very likely anyone striving for the finish will reach 1000 deaths.
Getting onto the last two levels. They both started with exceedingly difficult and precise tasks. Then when you eventually passed that part, you would get near the end of the level and usually fail. Then you would start again, only to spend another 5 minutes and 100 deaths just to have another go at beating the later parts. Ok, i was probably exaggerating a little, but still.

Anyway, the fact that I managed to beat it says something i guess. It's not often that I complete these types of games. By which I mean, platformers/puzzles made to be as difficult as possible. The medals do give the game a purpose to be conquered though.

Ah those last two medals.. the people that have them, are courageous, masterful and dedicated (most especially the 10 deaths). But seriously those medals are quite insane. If I even tried for under 100 deaths let alone 10, I'd probably end up nothing but a bloody mesh on the floor, somehow.
Now I'm not saying having those medals was a bad idea or anything, just too hard for me, and many others.

Ok, ending my rant on how hard it is.
Originality - It's a typical platformer that follows all the old school platforming rules and whatnot, but it does have somewhat original elements to it. It required thought and precision. Although quite a few other games are the same.
Programming - everything seems to more or less work fine, but better hitTests could have been nice. The controls were reasonable, couldn't really be improved.
Art - Pixel/sprite art. Hard to go wrong with that. Although it's possible. Main thing is it looks ok. Nothing too special though, but still good.
Sounds/Music - The music was pretty good, it fit the theme and didn't distract from the crucial concentration of gameplay. The sound were simple, they sounded good. Not really much else you could have done with them.
Gameplay - I'll rate you on gameplay as well, even though it's similar to programming and originality. The gameplay was simple enough, hop and bop to the end. it definitely took a lot of skill later on. There were times when i was literally hanging off of the platform (level 30) and I went to jump and got killed by the thing above me. Well frustrating-ness aside, the gameplay was pretty fun and kept you on the edge of your seat.

Overall: 7/10

I believe a lot of people have rated this low because they can't handle the difficulty/figuring out how to beat certain levels. But I'm sure you've put a lot of work into this, and I commend you for having to test it over and over (if you actually did). It's a good game, but only a 7 because of various things. Anyway, good work.
I hope you read this, lol :P

.. holy shit that was a long review, especially from me.

keybol responds:

I readevery bit! It's unusual for me to read reviews for my old games, but you kindled some of my love for this game. And now that I am better at programming, I might actually do NAF2!

not bad

The music and sound effects fit. The graphics are ok, could be better.
Gameplay and concept aren't too original, but this game is quite fun. The time warp was a nice idea. The medals give something to strive for, which is good.

ThomSip responds:

Thanks for the positive comments :)


the graphics are simplistic but nice looking. the sounds are great. Gameplay is very fun and also requires a lot of thought. The bonus time for perfect ribbons is an added challenge, which tests your memory and reflexes. It gets quite challenging after a while :3
Overall a great game.

ZEGMAN responds:

Thanks a lot! :D


a lot of nice artwork. The music is awesome, although it stops after finding yankovic medal. The click to next picture arrows were quite hidden, so it would probably be good to let people know where they are.
aside from that, all the art pieces in this collab are good-excellent.

JKAmovies responds:

I have already said where the buttons are in the authors comments (this shows that people don't read the authors comments... Makes me sad).

Nah! but seriously, thanks man, glad you liked it :)


quite entertaining. A funny simulation of the flash game making process. Music is good. Nice to see the medals are working ;)

Manly-Chicken responds:

I know! It took way too long to get them to work...

fun game

this is quite fun and addicting. Graphics are pretty good and the music is entertaining. gameplay is fun and has some interesting elements. It isn't the most original game but it isn't boring and has unique aspects.
Those later medals sure are ruthless! :P
a good game overall.

Megadev responds:

Cheers - I'm not even sure I can get all of those medals you know...:-O

I enjoy doing things that I find enjoyable.
