Cavern Cavern

Rated 4 / 5 stars

You get a 4 for a nice selection of puzzles, but Puzzle 7's lack of feedback makes it far more difficult than the others. I understand the instructions, but according to the other comments, there are multiple solutions but only one accepted. In a game this difficult, that's an issue.
Otherwise, great concept.

There shouldn't be multiple solutions since the update, and if there was it'd be really handy to see a screenshot. The pair of us would like to have some feedback involved, with lights between the tiles, but SirNightOwl made me aware that there was already a lot of code going on in that puzzle anyway.

Thanks for the review though!

I like it a lot, but that Hot Sand in level 23 is a little too unforgiving. Why have a "Hot" meter if you have less than half a second to react?

Well, it's hot sand and you're a guy full o' gas. That's the deal ;)

*SPOILER* : It's not that hard tho, see below.

A Solid classic-arcade style shooter with tight and simple controls.
Nicely done. Easily addictive.

Touch The Core 3 Touch The Core 3

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Points for originality and cleverness. Deductions for clip-artsy visuals that makes the game feel cobbled together as a first draft with no polish. The game mechanics also fall apart in a lot of places like the 2nd boss battle where the concept is understood, but the game engine just makes gameplay frustratingly glitchy and inconsistent.

For the fun puzzle-solving Wario-Ware quality of the game, I give them credit, but this honestly feels like a student project thrown together in a few days. It shows potential.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Solid and Simple. I never would have noticed the Floorboard or Mushroom without help.

Ninja Virus Ninja Virus

Rated 4 / 5 stars

As authentically frustrating as any real NES title.
Solid, engaging, fun, difficult, and awesome.

Caribbean Admiral Caribbean Admiral

Rated 5 / 5 stars

It's basically an abridged Sid Meier's Pirates, but with a turn based battle mechanic.
Lots of addictive level-grinding upgradable fun.

The Guardian The Guardian

Rated 3 / 5 stars

I'm torn in half.

The artist, art lover, and storyteller inside me loves the simplistic yet deep story about human nature, the "soul", the choice to destroy, child-like love, fear, etc.

However, the gamer inside me feels like I just wasted a lot of time on a "game" that was more of a repetitive interactive art platform than an enjoyable gaming experience.

Overall, I give the artist a lot of credit for this bold, and interesting experience that steps outside the box of conventional gaming to bring you art with an interactive story, but I have to give it 3/5 stars due to the amount of tedious repetition and time involved to convey it.

Calling it Pacman on steroids just doesn't do it justice. Classic arcade style fun.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This would make a great Tablet/Phone/Wii-U game, allowing the player to rotate and tilt the screen to control the character.
