2. John                  - By: Diptoman

3. Memory Xtreme - By: Shadow lancer

4. Eidetic               - By: Blake

 

The reason:

All those games scored top score in my reviews. They are all very well made and polished but I personally found Mind therapy funnier and more inventive than the rest, even though it may not have as strong connections to the theme, hence the first spot. For any more detailed reasons why I liked the games, see their reviews.

Here are my votes! I've played through all of the games and I'm ranking them mainly after how much I enjoyed them, because that is after all why we play games in the first place, but I also wanted to see a clear connection to the theme "memories".

Do note that I wanted to vote for TheM's game as well, but seeing as we're siblings I feel that that might be unappropriate (I'd be dead if he ended up anywhere but first).

 

Please do forgive me if I miss out on some of the deeper meanings of your games, I eyed through a lot of them quickly.

 

Anyhow, here goes:

1. Remember Dummy by UKDutyPaid - Big emphasis on the theme, very good graphics, well scripted and executed platformer in general. It was not going to end up in the first place, but on my second run I found out about the powerups by playing the tutorial, which gave the game a whole new level of depth. Well crafted!

 

2. John by diptoman - Beautiful game, lots of drawings and work put into it. Not really all that fun and you've seen most of the content after the first playthrough (I think?), but no other game built on the theme as well as this one. Well done!

 

3. Eidetic by Blake - Great concept, sadly for you I'd very recently played through "Thinking with time machine", which is built on the exact same foundation, so I was a bit tired of it really :<

However, it's a great platformer, well scripted, plays smoothly. Didn't manage to win it though, so I might have missed out on any story based goodies later on in the game, sorry!

 

4. Psychosomatica Optima by Darkwalker247 - Beautiful and immersive. The whole memory shard part feel a bit forced though, so it didn't fit the theme good enough for me. (It's still fourth place, that's great!)

 

5. Memories of Fallen Heroes by Squarebit - This feels like the game with the most potential among all the games I played. There's a lot of content (though it need moaar!), a bunch of spells and a seemingly randomly generated world. I would love 3 things though, which combined are the reason you didn't score even higher.

1. Balance the classes. There seems to be no advantage of using the sword when you can rapid fire from a distance with the bow.

2. The player really has to move smoother along walls. Currently you're getting stuck, it would be such an improvement if you simply ran along walls when pressing yourself against them.

3. I would rather have an ending portal placed out somewhere on the map, rather than having to locate every single enemy (they're often stuck on weird places), and killing them.

Great work mate!

 

Best use of theme goes to John by diptoman!

Best devlog has to go to TheM (Hurray!)

 

 

Honorable mentions:

 

Veggie Penguin by Greenblizzard - It's a shame that you allowed the player to fly around freely and unlimited, that kinda ruins the point of a platformer. It doesn't have anything to do with memories either. But damn, it does look good! Add some audio to it and restrict the flying (you're a penguin after all), and you have yourself a fine piece of game.

 

LongShotPot by Kepons - Definitely has the best tutorial on how to play! :D

 

Old Jamz by Reknepz - The game looks like crap, but the solid platforming and horrible puns makes for a great time! :)

 

What if your game wasn't listed?

There were a lot of remember-and-match-the-cards games. Those were not original enough for me, sorry!

Other than that, I simply enjoyed the 5 games that you see on my list more than the game you crafted. It doesn't at all mean that your game was bad in anyway, and that's the beautiful cruelty of a voting system.

 

A lot of people had questions about my game, so here's a few answeres

(it's related to making your review so I thought I'd share it here):

Awesome job, everyone who made a game for this. Making games of this quality in just 2 days is quite the feat. I apologize if your game didn't make the cut for my top 3, but these ones really went above and beyond and deserve a little extra praise.

 

My votes go to

  • Wizard Amnesia: Forgotten Spells - Turgon
  • Eidetic - Blake
  • I Do Remember - Ghandpivot

Best Use Of Theme - Turgon and Blake
Best Use Of Handicap - Diptoman
Best Use Of Who Broke The Big Thing - Reknepz

 

1. Wizard Amnesia has multiple things going for it. First, it has an interesting and extremely unique concept which seems appropriate for a spell-casting game. Not only that, but the developer was able to incorporate the idea of remembering spells into every facet of the game; the spell words are in the air itself trying to remind you which one you're looking for as you grasp with all the powers of your memory to figure out how to use whatever spell you need. Secondly, it has excellent graphics, even if there are a few rough edges with some of the spell collisions etc. It is possibly the most graphically advanced game in this jam. The shortcomings mostly are in the limitations and poor balance of the spells. With only 5 elements and 4 types of spells, it feels a bit limited, especially with some spells being either omnipotent or worthless.

 

2. Eidetic takes the concept of memory and literally makes it literal. I really enjoyed crafting the memories just right for use in the puzzle, and it was exciting watching the memory play out. The developer took a cool concept and designed excellent puzzles with it. It isn't much to look at as far as graphics go, but that matters little in the long run with how intrinsically fun the gameplay is.

 

3. I Do Remember has exceptionally fun gameplay, not unlike Eidetic. Along with the gameplay it has a fascinating story playing out that is one part charming and two parts horrific. The game may not have had such a strong connection with the theme of memory, but the gameplay demonstrated a sort of cooperation that was fitting for its being a memoir of a relationship. What mainly turns me off about this game is how the whimsy is totally disrupted rapidly by finishing each room by the girl being chopped in half. The charm and whimsy of the game was never allowed to sink in before the horrifying ending, so as an audience member, I was already expecting a tone of horror and was not altogether shocked by the ending. A better way to do it would have been to let the relationship sink in without tipping off the audience about the ending so that it would stun them all the more. That being said, I feel like there should be a disclaimer of some sort preventing young children from playing this seemingly harmless game so that they don't have to see that disturbing ending.

 

Best Use of Theme: Wizard Amnesia made excellent use of the theme by basing the entire gameplay on trying to remember spells. It is as interesting a use as Eidetics while being slightly subtler and it has the added facet of having the player joining the wizard in his struggle to remember spells after whatever tragedy befell him.

 

Best use of Sounds: John's strongest point was its use of sight and sound in simple but effective ways.

 

Best use of Who Broke The Big Thing: Reknepz, please look up "Who Broke The Big Thing". It is another game made for a contest a couple years back on Gamemaker and it was... unique. Your game reminded me of it, so I thought you might get a kick out of it.

Things to know about my reviews:

-These are reviews are only my opinion, if you liked a game or disliked a game more, than I don't care

-I review games at random but because I don't have time to review all the games, those who request a game are reviewed first

-I give out ribbons for those who do really good in a subject or really bad, also for simply standing out in a notable way

-I'll try to finish your game and I'll say so if I don't

-I do consider theme and handicap even if I don't write about it directly

-My reviews are really long so be prepared

-I may seem supercilious in the harshness of my reviews but remember that I also made a jam game (and it got mixed but negative reviews) so I think I've earned that right

Two and a half years of game development taught me the joy of making something unique and unconventional. It is not good enough to make a game fun when there are way too many other freeware games that make fun their selling point.

Woot! It's THAT time of the year... again. Voting time, and I hope for the sake of my sanity that the majority of all games are better than ours (Team Washboard's) :).

A tip to all jam reviewers: Kindness is key.

The jam is a good place to experiment with gamemaker in a simple little competition to get some constructive criticism, and hopefully a few good comments as well. For some of the newer users (or people who just don't have much practice with it) their games will not be, well, the best, but it is always good to give them some helpful tips. So when you're writing your reviews, try to put something nice in there, because someone put their time into the game they made.

Alright so I'm fifteen games in and I'm really tired of reviewing games. Seeing as I have until the 14th of next month I'm going to call it a night. I'll get back at it tomorrow starting with Memory X-treme by Shadow_lancer. Hope everybody is enjoying their jams! :)

 

Update May 6, 2014: Had a lazy day yesterday sorry :P   I'm going to try and finish the rest of the games by tomorrow night. Probably do half tonight and the rest tomorrow night Have a good day everybody!

 

Update May 10, 2014: Alright sorry guys this is taking me a lot longer than expected. I'm going to finish it though I promise. If your game isn't on here I haven't played it so please be patient I promise your game will get played. I have 16 games left so I'll come back to that in a little bit. One game that I played today managed to make it into my top three! Hope everybody is enjoying the jam! The next game I will be checking out is Beat by Programmer5.

 

Update May 13, 2014: This is just like me to wait until the last possible second to finish it... I promise those last 16 will be played and reviewed. It's 5 in the morning right now though and I need sleep, so I will do it when I wake up. 

 

Update May 13, 2014: FINISHED!  :thumbsup:

 

Progress: 44/44

My Review is Complete!!!

  1. I Do Remeber by ghandpivot - While I think the aesthetic could have done with a bit more work there were some pretty special moments in the game. It didn't do too much that was new, but it did what it did well.
  2. Eidetic by Blake - I was bothered a little bit by the way you couldn't interact with yourself unless stationary but I felt like the game was really well put together, the aesthetic/mechanics/story all had a common goal. Nice.
  3. John by Diptoman - I felt like a lot more could have been done with the memories to develop a stronger narrative but I really enjoyed the whole mood this game created, and the game-play was paced really well.

ULT'S JAM REVIEWS

 

I'm back! I wasn't able to join because I was gone all weekend, but I'll happily review!

The way I review Jam games is based mostly on “HOW AWESOME WAS THE CONCEPT?” followed closely by “How well was it done/how fun is it?” cause as we all know, everyone’s totally rushed when they’re doing one of these 72-hour things and the execution sometimes doesn’t quite match what you envisioned. (so in other words, don’t mind too much if I complain about the controls lol.) I believe that creating something different and taking risks is more important than sticking to the same tried-and-true formula with a few changes. There's a trade-off between polish/completeness and innovation, and I don't think that doing something outside your norms should count against you.
 

The reviews themselves are by PM request. There are two reasons: 1) I'll run out of time if I review every game, and 2) I'd rather write a few detailed reviews that will be meaningful to the the reviewee, rather than 70 short reviews that might not get read. All I ask of you if I review your game is to reply and let me know your thoughts on it. And please reply with more than one sentence, these reviews aren't short to write! The reviews will be edited into this post. New this Jam: The first 5 requests are guaranteed a review; subsequent reviews will only be done if there's time.

Oh, and let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like me to mention!

Good luck everyone!

1st place review: While "I do remember" did not present anything new in gameplay or gimmicks, it was well executed.  Even though the storyline is predictable, the ending will still hit you in the feels a bit.

 

2nd place review: "Mind Therapy" did present something new, and that was how you do pushups and eat.  However, I felt that pushing the buttons back and forth didn't really add anything to the game.  I still enjoyed the puzzle solving though.

 

3rd place review: I'm not sure if I liked the mechanic, or that it reminded me so much of one of my other games?  Just wish it had more of a storyline.

 

Q: But smash, you totally crapped on my game in the video review, and then rated it really high!

A: Video review means nothing.

 

Video blind playthrough reviews!  I don't know how many of these I will do, so don't be surprised if your game isn't on here.  The number ratings at the end of the video are somewhat arbitrary, so if I rank games with lower totals higher than games with higher totals, well now you know why.  I do remember, Boring Game, From Memory, and Long Shot Pot are the better ones in terms of entertainment of video (not necessarily entertainment in terms of gameplay).

I rated the graphics, audio, gameplay, use of theme as well as if handicap was met.
I did not only look at quality, but also consistency in and between audio & graphics, as well as general design.
There were some pretty good games which I could not connect to the theme, thus they are lowered in the final rankings.
I ran into technical problems with some games (which on a 72 hour jam is understandable) but this also lead to some point deduction.

Some brief comments:
 
Eidetic -- Blake
Wow.  This is a very fun and well-made platform puzzler game.  The idea of using a memory of your previous self made for very clever puzzles, and it fit the theme beautifully.   Innovative design here.  This is a wonderful game.
 
Remember Dummy -- UKDutyPaid
This is a great use of theme in an innovative platform game.  The controls were easy, so it kept the focus on memorizing each level's layout and finding the finish.   The level of difficulty seems about right.  Overall, this is well made and it feels complete and nicely polished.
 
Mind Therapy -- Detective Pixel
This is a great little puzzle game.  The use of theme was fairly good.  But the puzzles themselves were truly different.  It's an idea I haven't seen before.  Reminded me a little of Alice in Wonderland... "take the red pill to get small, etc."  Great game.
 
John -- Diptoman
To be honest, I didn't play this with any effort to win.  I just watched it unfold.   I really enjoyed the graphics and overall design... a lot.  Great use of theme and handicap.  Wonderfully haunting graphics.  Nice experience.
 
Twisted Memory -- TeamSteve
Great card-flipping memory game with some nice twists.  I loved the jazz version of Autumn Leaves in the background.  The game uses a familiar idea, but it's executed well.
 
MemoryXtreme -- Shadow Lancer
Another card flipping game, and a nicely polished one at that.  I like the approach of using a large board, with repeated symbols.  And the effects when a match is achieved is simple but appealing.  Nice 70's music.  Well done overall.
