Yikes... when I read back over these comments of mine they sound so painful, lol... please take alla this with a grain of salt... & know that whatever I say about your game, you're better than me cos at least you entered & managed to finish on time.
So much respect in advane to all entrants!
Now for the pain...
Agency - Metal slug sprites - no sound - boring platform shooter gameplay
An inconvenient facade - kinda interesting platforming swapping out bad stuff for unknown stuff... nice sound/music.
Bair - Bonus points for trying a new control scheme... I lioke the idea of being a hot air balloon but didn't quite work well.
Bak-lush - I like the idea of this one trying to hide & devour the townsfolk, but playabilty wasn't so great.
BallX - aply named, lol (^o^')... very simple jumping game wth overly exciting music but not much too it. Weak art.
Bots - um... is this a game? Not clear what to do... or else just very boring text adventure.
Boximus - ok "box" platformer. No enemies? Kinda boring....
Break the facade - Black white thing. I've seen this idea used somewhere before, I like this idea tho. Level design could be better.
Bubble Jam -this one of them "art/meaningful" games? (or possibly just very broken) couldn't get off selection screen without
Cellz - nice music. Ok art. Simple ok gameplay...
Citified - impressive engine in sucha short timeframe. Interesting visuals. Nice little "poly blocks" explosions. Seemed ok but boring. Boring music didn't helpt the mood.
City Mania - hmm. Like that swingy game on iPhone or something I've seen. No proper swing/wobble physics tho kinda makes it really weak. Maybe too ambitious for teh timeframe.
ClownFishCoffee - bad graphics. No sound. Weak gameplay. I liked seieng the donut run offscreen tho lol.
wits4 - um. Face thing. Weird stuff. Was that a game? (Sadly most memorable so far, lol!)Dawn Of Nightmares - 1st person 3D thing. I quite enjoyed this. Nice atmosphere achieved with the sounds. (^-^)b Makes me wanna make that 3D 1st person thing in a hotel I;ve been meaning to make for years...
(best so far).
Defend! - nah. Not clear what to do (or there is noting to do...)Disillusion - I liked it. Very cool graphics style. Very moody music. Very sexy gradient & particle use. Really Wish there were sound effects. (new best game so far). (^-^)b
Don't Judge - um. Not clear what to do. Kinda interesting. Looks like a bit of effort put into visuals. No music. Bad sound.
Duality - one of the ones I thought would be cool... but didn't like. First playthrough didn't know what to do. 2nd I picked up the block & moved onto the path & "won the game" *scratches head* (glitch?). Impressive engine in the timeframe. Kinda interesting music. (sorry TheSnidr!)
Dungeon Deciever - haha. Like those old "spy in the castle" final fantasy or whatever they weres. Not too exciting.
Eulophoria - huh? Green ground. Bunny. Key. DIdn't know what to do. Kinda nice presentation.
Eeveelution - Simple tower defence with Pokemon. Not very original or exciting.
Facade - Political facade eh? Interetsing idea. Crap execution. Bad art. Bad sounds.
Face-Ace - meh. Bad art. Bad music. All I can do is walk across the screen?!
Fakedate - hmmm. Kinda interesting. Looks like effort put into it. Lotsa different minigames mashed up.
Fake Guide - bad collision platformer with bad graphics & no music... with voice overlay. Having a voice overlay made this different form most GM games... so +1 for that.Falling for Milk - hey I kinda liked this. Ok music. Simple but effective graphics. Simple but kinda ok gameplay (falling down carefully). Yeah I quite liked the simplicity & execution of this little idea ()
False - Kinda interesting block auto moving platformer puzzle thing. Had music. Bit too awkward/fiddly to figure out the levels imo.
Faykade - meh. Platformy shooter against cowboys & zombies & bats or something. Kinda weak art & bad controls.Feet of Clay - hahaha!!! First one to make me laugh (^O^)b (no actual game but nice intro stuff... but yeah, kinda crap relaly lol).Fix It - I liked the visual style of this. And color use. And the idea of "flipping" the blocks like that. Nice little mechanic there. (^-^)b The levels coulda been better designed tho.
Fountainface - I liked the black & white "words/sentences" levels. "Ok" platformer.Couldn't get to the end tho...
Gaming 404 - huh. another apprpriate tile here, lol. Bad gamepaly platforer. Bad agraphics. Weird voice intro.
Halluncinogen - Oh NAL. I am disappoint. (But +1 cookie for entering at all, unlike other wastrels who shall remain nameless.
ILoveMyWife - lol at the little story here. Based on the true story (of every married man, lol). Had music. Was "ok" gameplay.
Icoat - huh? Whiteness... in jail... break through bars... not sure what to do/where to go. I just ran off to the right continuously, lol. Kinda nice little setting.
Julius - Hmmm. Ya know, there mgiht be a good game here, *but* I don't have the patience to play through. I think these kinda games aren'yt so suitable for Jams (Jam games should eb short & sweet methinx). Nice attempt tho (^-^)b
Katies Flight - Lol. Nice cutout artstyle. Demented voice sound effects. Kinda crap gameplay.
Mario Norris Kart - Hmmm. Looks like effort put inon characters/art. But this is just TheSnidrs mode7/mariokart engine reskinned (I've fiddled with ti myself). So I guess a few points for effort & entering but... not in theme & nothing new... meh. *shrugs* I liked the retro music tho. (^-^)b
Masked - um. I guess you're a drug dealing smily face here... bad art. bad gameplay. Kinda crap tbh, lol.
Masks of Dukhovu - Couldn't figure out how to play. Nice graphics, presentation, music & sound effects tho (^-^)b
Modern Hero - Hmmm. Coulda been good, but really bad controls/game mechanics let it down. Also bad art & repetitive music.
MoltenLead - No sound. Bad graphics. Boring space shooter gameplay.
Money Running Out - another one I couldn't' figure out what to do or press otehr than enter & esc...
Moonlight Sonata - kinda interesting. Nice music. Ok art (esp the sparkly ball). I like the kinda new control method, but it didn't work very well. Maybe too slow paced I think.
Mystery Men - select GMC members to kill. Ok I liked that part, lol. But oh dear, it's pretty crap isn't it? Sorry.Nothing Will Ever Hurt You - I liked it. Nice visual shadow effect going on (^-^) Nice atmospheric music. Nice little story/idea.
Polyworld - meh. Bad graphics & gameplay.
Redhood - huh? Just kept getting shot & repeating it, lol. Looks like a bit of effort put in tho. Kinda "ok" I guess.
RGB - Hmmm. Simple space invadery shooter thing. Kinda boring.
SaveUs - Hmmm. Kinda interesting visual style/top down 3d look. Ok music. Not sure exactly what to do... nice effort tho!
Seeds and Weapons - Nice retro pixel look. Kinda reminds me of that Neon looking exploring game that was cool a few years back (ah yes, "The Power". This one's a bit too simple/boring tho. Good attempt all the same.
ShadowRunner - ah one of these auto running & ya jump games... hmmm it's *ok* I guess. Could do with music. Decent looking simple graphics.
Shap3Shift3tr - Hmmm. No idea how to play, lol.
Shhot the pigeon -does what it says on the box. Just. Funny thing is with decent art, anims, sfx & music this could actually be entertaining...SpyBot - Ooh. Kinda nice-ish. Alright music. I like the siplicity & execution of this. Feels good & solid. (^-^)b Screen needs to be *much* bigger!
Squirrel Launch - kinda cute art & sounds. Looks like a bit of effort put in. "Ok" game I suppose.Subterannia - Nice!* Sexy retro line effect & artwork & anims & sound. Nice solid retro gameplay goodness. Nice work! (^-^)b
Twisted Mission. Meh. Boringish top down thing. Bad art & gameplay.
Wanted - Hmmm. Ok presentation & sounds. Not so great gameplay.Water Water Water - Haha. I liked it! (^-^) Nice clean simpe art. Ok music. Good "story".
What You See - Hmmm. Simple platformer with hidden stuff. Kinda half an attempt I think. *Coulda* been good.
You Monster - Didn't like this one (unlike many it seems)... but I'm not a big fan of directly top down stuff tbh. Was "ok", might need to play it more to see what the fuss is about.
*So* in the end the votes I got in on time are 99% as I'd like... *but* I feel guilty about Water Water Water...
I woulda liked to have voted for that one (sorry! damn my laziness!)
My intended final vote order is:VOTE 1: Nothing Will Ever Hurt You
VOTE 2: Dawn Of Nightmares
VOTE 3: Disillusion
VOTE 4: Fix It
VOTE 5: Subterannia
VOTE 6: Water Water Water
VOTE 7: Falling For Milk
VOTE 8: SpyBot
VOTE 9: Feet Of Clay
VOTE 10: Duality
So yeah... more or less what I managed to not so stealthily squash in on time... just that Water Water Water shoulda been in there at 6 (don't think it'd make much of a difference to the voting tho).
