EDIT: Wow.. wow.. wow..
I take back what I said.. this game is just about perfect as it is! I love the online score tracking! It makes you want to keep coming back for more! Very good idea! I actually think this is *exactly* the kind of game YoYo want.. ultra casual & very addictive.. so, in my opinion 2Dcube..
you deserve 1st place..
This is beautiful.
Thank you for this very positive post. The fact you did not like it at first but did later on confirms what I suspected. The game is rather hectic and it can take a few plays before you understand it better. When you do it becomes more fun. I can only hope the game keeps being interesting enough for players to try again a few times. For many people it is but perhaps not everyone.
Yeehah! Number 1 in the world!
This is fantastic!
If you don't win 1st place I'll be surprised.
But could you fill us in on exactly who came up with/did what?
I notice a few names in the credits.. 2 main ones.. was it a 50/50 brainstormed idea or? Would love to know.
This is really really enjoyable, trying out new ways of building here..
I would pay for this in a heartbeat if it were a WiiWare game or something.
The game is indeed both my Ferry Spaans' idea. Ferry also did a lot of graphics.
I have a problem instant playing this, as it doesn't let me connect to yoyogames. May you post a mirror? I'll edit back with my review because this may be a cute game for me. =)
YoYoGames is back up now, and I want people to play through YYG as much as possible. (Though it's still not instant play for some reason...). If YYG goes down again I guess I'll have to put up a mirror.
This would have been a perfect game for anti-depressant.
Agreed. Not completely though, the music is a bit melancholic. A great job by C418!
I really liked this game, got 200 points, nicely polished. However maybe you should make it a bit less frustrating, having things roll into your blocks is ok, but sometimes a bomb or flying thing might come and blow everything away, you're left with no money or blocks.
Next time try save some money just in case
. I think a good way to play is only build what's necessary.
Great game, I played a few of the mods.
Its harder than it looks, you must place your defenders correctly to be effective and not run out of money.
But I still think its very big (10mb!) for this game. You use mp3?
Best of luck in the competition!
Thanks, same to you, that game is amazing. The filesize is mainly large because of 3 MP3 files yes, but it's definitely worth it in my opinion, and who still has dial up these days? (If you do, sorry about that).
Now to answer some of Erik Leppen's questions...
[Large piece about strategy and different mubblies]
There are differences, and you can see their stats when you hover the mosue above the icons in the HUD. The square one can be very useful, it's powerful and won't go away from his position as easily. The archer Mubbly is very useful against air attacks, the other 2 are quite powerful, low on the sides.
[relation to ancient civilization is questioned]
Yeah, it's mainly the story, setting, type of weapons, and the fact they build a tower. I don't see why I need to do more, personally.
Edit: why all those different default names in the "you have a high score" window? I don't really see a point in that, besides the fact that you are in fact calling names at players by calling them "loser" every once in a while.
Heh, sorry about that, of course I didn 't mean that... Actually the number 2 on the rankings right now is called Girlygirl16, and someone else called himself Boylyboy18, which made me laugh. It's just poking fun.
While typing 2 more replies show up, so:
unfortunately, humor doesn't cross international boundaries so well.. the same goes for your "mis-spelling".. alot of people aren't going to "get" either - perhaps something to keep in mind for future games 2DCube!
Thanks everyone for rating and commenting!
