Welcome to the official GMC Jam #16 Voting Topic!

This topic is where you can post your reviews and final votes in the GMCJam. The rules, as always, are listed below for those new members that are participating for the first time and we recommend that you read them before making any posts. For those veterans out there, skip the rules as nothing has changed since previous jams, and "START VOTING"!

 

Voting Template
You don't have to use this, but it makes my life a lot easier if you do, so please consider adding the following template to your post, even if you wish to add mini-reviews and images for your chosen games.
 

My votes go to

  • name of the game - author
  • name of the game - author
  • name of the game - author
  • etc...
Best Use Of Restrictions - author
Best Presentation - author
Best Devblog - author
Best use of secret word - author

 

 

 

Voting Rules
You may vote for as many (or as few) games as you wish in order of preference, with 1 being the winner and all subsequent games being runners up, but please vote for at least three! The zip file that is created for the Jam comes with a game "randomiser" so that the order you play the games in does not depend on their title or creator, so we ask that you please use it!

Apart from the voting you are encouraged to post a mini-review of the winning game (and any others you feel deserve it) explaining what you liked/disliked and why you think it deserves to win... Remember, this is a Community Jam and so feedback from the community is all important! We want to know what you think! Apart from that there are a few more rules to stick to...

  • Voting will last approximately 15 days from Tuesday 28th October to Wednesday 12th November.
  • Please post your votes FIRST, before any other text or images, and preferably using the above template.
  • Only ONE post per person (this is flexible but you MUST PM me for permission first). Any further conversation about a given game can be held in the Jam topic or in the topic of the game itself (if it has one). Any posts breaking this rule will be removed.
  • Your top three games MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A SHORT REVIEW and posts with no reviews of at least the top three games will be considered <void> at the time of counting.
  • If you are reviewing the games over the course of the 15 day voting period, use the <EDIT> button to add to your post, rather than post twice.Constructive criticism is fine, but comments like "This game sucks" will not be tolerated... so think before commenting! If your reviews are extensive or use images, please encase them in [spoiler] tags.
  • Please vote for at least YOUR TOP THREE GAMES, although you can vote for as many as you like (and every vote DOES count!) Please also vote for  "Best Use Of Restrictions" , "Best Presentation", "Best DevBlog" and "Best use of secret word"
  • NO talk of cheating in the Jam topics please. If anyone has any doubts about a post or a vote, then please REPORT the post or PM me with your thoughts and action will be taken accordingly.
  • For all votes, including the Best Ofs, be sure to include BOTH the game name AND the author name.

So that's it I think... Take your time to play as many games as possible, but don't feel pressured to play them all, and we shall see you all here again in fifteen days time to see who has the honour of being the Jam winner this time around!

Good luck to everybody and thank you all so much for participating!!!!

The secret word was PANDA, by the way!

Reviews:
 
2Dcube - Manjuu
+ simple score chasing gameplay, cute & clean presentation, follows the theme
- not enough to it, no music
3/10

11clock - MotherDuck And BabyDuck
+ follows the theme & handicap I guess...
- possibly one of the greatest games of all time, so much depth!*
1/10

95jonpet - Exendable Blocks
+ nice music & sound, nice presentation, simple gameplay, follows the theme & handicap
- kinda boring, gameplay isn't really my thing
3/10

Alice - Tiles Of Reim Alpha
+ kinda interesting concept, nice presentation, had music, didn't play long enough to see use of the theme/handicap
- concept not well executed, too many instructions, not very exciting
3/10

AnnoyedGrunt - SystemFailure
+ really nice concept, nice presentation, nice graphics, creative use of the theme & handicap
- Argh! no sound at all!, gameplay potential not realized
5/10


brainstorm - Steam Era War
+ had music, kinda incoporated the theme & handicap...
- gameplay was too simple, boring
2/10
 
Camper125lv - Forgotten3d
+ I love this retro 3D style, the mirror thing was cool, music was good, had sound effects
- there was nothing to the gameplay (just walk around, hear the monster, & die lol)
3/10
 
chance - size matters
+ blob physics rock, love the faces on the germs, kinda liked the simplicity of the click gameplay
- no music!!!, no replayablity, it didn't really make much sense... this *could* have been good!
4/10
 
dadio - xanduvskandy
+ awesome music!, action packed gameplay!, gorgeous graphics!
- nothing, this game was perfect in every way!
11/10 (just kidding, I think my game sucks & won't be considered for my votes) - 0/10
 
DetectivePixel - TacoQuest
+ fantastic music! (was that music legal out of curiosity?), lovely presentation, upbeat mood, nice text system, amusing & enjoyable story, nifty simple animations, felt very complete, just about perfect for a Jam game, YoYoGames name dropping!, had me behind a door making Maggot in a Frying Pan 5!!! (^o^)b, I really liked this! Great work!
- theme use was sketchy... & would much rather the controls were *entirely* keys based (rather than having to use the mouse at all)
9/10
 
epicular - slimey
+ had music, had online highscores, stuck well to the theme & handicap, gameplay was ok
- graphics were very basic, just not enough variety to keep interest
3/10
 
Exkakx - MiceIIII
+ stood out of the crowd, so you get bonus points for that - not every day you see a text adventure, had appropriate sound, what was there was interesting...
- errored out - to fit the theme or ran out of time (or both?) dunno..., way too short
3/10
 
Galaxy and boysano - MineZombieFailure
+ looks like effort was put in, lots of detail...
- music was baaaaad!, too cluttered & confusing, couldn't actually figure out what I was doing at all
2/10
 
GameDevDan - LosTPB
+ nice presentation, clean graphics, decent music & sound, random variety, cool assortment of Boss attacks
- the randomness of the attacks always makes your death feel like the games fault rather than your own, you die too easily, just not fun
5/10
 
Goinbatty - Resetka
+ clean retro graphical style, had sound
- don't really see use of the theme or handicap in what I played, movement was odd & not so much fun, have a feeling I missed something
3/10
 
Greenblizzard - A Mouse In Space
+ 3D is cool, had music & sound, nice little intro, good graphics in-game, simple gameplay, lots of potential
- menu/HUD was badly designed, play area was much too small & restrictive, got bored pretty quick, just not enough there...
5/10
 
HayManMarc - DrSwiss2 failure
+ amusing intro, had music, funny photo use, lots of interface stuff, lots of different levels, liked the old TV Batman style "Pow!"
- didn't know what I was really doing!, gameplay seemed too simple
3/10
 
Hippyman - LonelyBlooban
+ the character animation was pretty cool...
- theme use?, no sound at all!, too much text on screen, visuals too simple, not really fun
2/10
 
Holgerson1988 - The Universe And Randy (played it on my work computer :whistle: )
+ nice lil idea that was well executed, tense & solid gameplay
+ graphics coulda been prettier, would have liked more depth
5/10
 
Jack Oatley - dartmoor-finch
+ nice presentation, good music & sound use, clean retro pixel style, fun & addictive gameplay, online highscores! *but*...
- those online highscores are now offline & mean the game gets stuck at the highscore screen now! (+o+') *gulp!*
7/10
 
Joh - David Vs Goliath
+ good music & sounds, nice simple little concept, decent visuals
- gameplay is too repetitive, the usual "can't win" interpretation of the handicap (I'm guilty of it too, but it sucks!)
4/10
 
kahvana166 - cubesadventure
+ 3D was nice & the textures were good, you entered something
- no use of theme of handicap, no sound at all, no gameplay at all, suspect was made before the Jam even began...
1/10
 
kepons - Teh Kitteh That Liked Clocks
+ nice lil intro, interesting photo use, oddball nature will make this one stick in my mind, liked that everything jiggled
- no sound at all!, too short
4/10
 
LukanSpellWeaver - Paint*****
+ it's Paint..., bonus point for entering something!
- nothing to do with anything, it's an app... in a game jam
1/10
 
Lune - ElvenMan
+ lol this was kinda fun, nice presentation (as always), tasty graphics, good music, haven't seen a "simon says" jamgame before
- could easily cheat by spamming the keys (I beat it like this on my 1st go & got the "cheat" screen, not much replayability
5/10
 
manlk800 - Micro Minis
+ I kinda like these virtual pet things, cute music...
- not really seeing the theme or handicap here, gameplay is too boring to play too long...
3/10
 
Mercerenies - Barry the Brainless Overlord
+ nice isometric engine, nifty lemmings-like gameplay, has music & sound, looks like effort put in, sticks to the theme
- too much text at start-up, pacing is quite slow/tedious
5/10
 
Mercerenies - Roy's Bigger Balloon
+ best joke game so far, lol
- no sound at all! (coulda been more amusing with sound!)
2/10
 
MonstrGaming -  Mr Big and Dr Small
+ loved the music!, had sound effects, nicely presented, used the theme well
- level layout wasn't so great, graphics were very simple, gameplay was dull...
3/10
 
MrMagnus - Another Fleating Day
+ Always like games that use voice acting - adds a lot in this one, nice use of the theme, interesting concept, quite fun
- presentation & art could be better, music got a bit grating after a while
5/10
 
NAL - Tighten Titan
+ Gorgeous presentation, nice clean art style, cool lil intro, nice music, very creative use of both theme & handicap (best use so far), fun to play
- control of your physics-ish robot guy is often frustrating, positioning of some platforms makes me wanna smash my monitor
8/10
 
Nallebeorn - The Miserable Petronella Panda
+ Good use of theme & handicap, nice progression, quite a lot to it, good music & sound
- clashing art styles, controls aren't the best
5/10
 
NazGhul - Bot Circuits
+ Used the theme & handicap, had music & sounds
- gameplay was just fiddly & time consuming...
3/10
 
Nitemare38 - Hippy Business Balloon
+ Good use of theme & handicap, nice background art
- no sound at all!, controls weren't very balloon-like, kinda dull gameplay
3/10
 
Nocturne - Little Nicolas
+ very tasty physics use, creative use of theme & handicap, impressive for the time frame, slick presentation, appropriate music & sounds, hilarious on the 1st play, mindless fun!
- should have online high-scores!, no real replay value... (but still kinda fun to fire up again & watch it! lol)
8/10
 
nvrogers - Daughter
+ interesting concept, nice use of theme, ok music & sound
- odd musical choice & mood, much too difficult
3/10

3/10
 
strandypants - SandyvsHandy
+ used the theme well, you submitted something!, it plays...um...

Welcome to

Sick Rusty's Incredibly Ill Topic of Disease, Strife and Mayhem

(Comic Sans is clearly the most appropriate way to announce illness)

 

For this Jam, I am offering something that will never be seen again if I can help it. You've got your Jam reviews, but these ones are sick! Let's see if your flashing imagery can pound my headache, pierce my sensitive ears and double points if I need to clean sweat, tears, blood or vomit from my keyboard and/or screen. It's incredibly disgusting! Woo! The Rustic Awards are here (fo real this time dawg) and let's see who becomes the first (and hopefully only) winner of the brand new category in honour of the virus that has trenched itself deep inside my corrupted blood, the YOU KILLED RUSTY award! Optimism shows that you're only dying on the outside. Be excited!

 

WARNING: I am now officially at my worst, so I will no longer be using my computer with the sound on at all. I am sorry to all the authors who games are still waiting to be reviewed but your horrendously painful sound effects will not be experienced or reviewed upon.

In case you didn't know, since I had rather little time recently, I left voting and reviewing to some program of mine. It ran games in a random order, and then used Monte Carlo method to determine amount of fun, as well as other qualities of a game, then made decision based on some arbitrary attribute values.

Also, FUN, MANDATORY AND CLASSIFIED DISCLAIMER:

Epicular's Votes/Reviews

So I'm going to be writing a brief review of each game as time goes by.

Reviews
Each review will consist of a few sentences telling about my thoughts of your game, as well as a numerical score ranging between 1 and 10 to help me determine my final votes (and because I saw Mercerenies using a similar system, which I thought was ideal)
 

I can be a bit blunt sometimes, so if I am, don't let it discourage you! Also I don't generally give out high ratings. If you get a 5 of 10, you probably didn't do that badly. I am just a very critical person!

 

Games will be played and reviewed randomly, but they are ordered alphabetically by username. After a few days, everyone's game should eventually show up here.

 

Completed reviews: 34 / 52

Spoiler

If you have anything to say about one of these reviews (even if it isn't a review for your game) please feel free to PM me

Review Format

I do give each game a numerical score. Note that this is only to help me determine the rankings; having the highest score does not guarantee that a game will be my first place vote. Each score, unless otherwise noted, is rated from 0 to 5.
Gameplay - Is your game fun to play?
Interface - Were the menus easy to navigate? Were clear instructions provided?
Graphics - How does the game look and feel?
Audio - Does the game sound good?
Story - Was there a plot? Did it surprise or entertain me?
Theme - Was there a contrast between big and small? Did the game seem to fit the theme?
Handicap (0-3) - Was your protagonist a failure? Was it clear that this was the case?
Secret Word (0-2) - Did you attempt the secret word? Did you correctly guess it?
Balance - Was your game too hard? Too easy?
Opinion (0-10) - Did I like playing your game?
Additionally, I'll leave a small comment detailing the most memorable parts of your game for me. Please note that I am incredibly blunt when I review. The very fact that you completed a game in 72 hours shows that you are indeed a skilled developer, so don't for a moment let my reviews deter you from doing what you love.

I'll be playing the games in a random order as determined by the zip randomizer program. I will try to play all games, but depending on time I may or may not be able to finish. If you would like me to play and review your game sooner, feel free to message me.

Feedback for more jams. I don't think the secret word helps. I would prefer if it were removed. I know it is completely optional and you should not bother if I do not want to. But I found it a bit distracting anyway and i have seen others with similar concerns. Just a thought. Next jam I'm not going to bother with the secret word anyway. Great Jam though! :)

Top Vote Reviews:

Things to know about my reviews:
-These reviews are only my opinion, if you liked a game or disliked a game more, then too bad
-I review games at random but because I don't have time to review all the games, those who request a review 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 strongly theme and handicap even if I don't write about it directly
-My reviews are really long so be prepared

-Any game larger than 1100 wide or 750 pixels tall (without fullscreen mode or the ability to resize the screen) with have one point docked from my reviews and it could even lose you favor when I'm deciding my votes.
-I may seem supercilious in the harshness of my reviews but remember that I'm doing it for constructive criticism

Do you not want your game reviewed under any circumstance? Let me know via PM! I plan to do a video play-through of a handful of jam games so if you don't want your game filmed then please contact me. If you PM me to play your game in a video, I won't consider it all that hard since I-alone like to pick which games I play.

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.

1.Kidnap The Princess - Yal Most well-rounded. Memorable and Satisfying.
2.Code Breakers - Ziggler1 This is the definition of "having a blast". Found myself pulling off the zaniest plays for the zaniest situations.

3.BarryTBO - Mercerenies I'll be honest and say that I was originally put off by the slow pace of the minions, the rushed intro, and the door glitch. It's not the type of game great for a jam where I gotta play 50 other games as equally as this. Yet, I continued onward, and played this up to level 16, and was the only entry I actually came back to complete a few days later ("hmm", I thought, "what challenges awaited me?"). The thing is, I really like this, not just as a jam game, but as a "game" game. You cannot deny the reward of feeling like a super evil-genius when solving each and every room, great work~!

4.Gemstack - The M

5.Tiles of Reim Alpha - Alice

A Rank: Must plays, all of these were viable for 1st: (No Order)

Spoiler


B Rank: Great plays. Seems to be missing something... (No Order)

C Rank: Worth a shot! A lot of potential, unfortunately are definitely incompleted :( (No Order)

I didn't have the most time to do this, but I did play all the games. Some I couldn't play because of errors and those are noted in the reviews. No scores posted, just what I liked and what I feel could be improved if you wanted to keep developing the project. Sorry this couldn't be fancier or more detailed. Feel free to PM me if you'd like any additional feedback or a rating of your game. I do have ratings for every game, I just didn't post them.

I'm going to try to do as many as I can, hopefully all of them, but I'm getting off to a late start... Life is much too busy. :(
I wrote reviews for the first ones but I think I'll start just doing scores, except maybe my favourites from here on. Takes so long I'll never get them finished

I really liked to write more reviews, but I don't have too much spare time.

My voting system is based on 2 factors:

Fun factor

Impression

 

Fun factor overwrite the impression. An ugly but well executed game is a good game.

Impression is the graphic, presentation, musics and sounds.

I don't have time to play all of the games, unfortunately, but I've used the randomizer and played the first 15 games. If I didn't get to your game and you'd like my opinion on it, or I did get to your game and you'd like me to give you more detailed feedback, just send me a PM!

A special mention goes to Kepons for TehKittehthatLikedClocks. I'm not entirely sure why I liked it so much or how it snagged my second place vote, but you're obviously doing something right.

A few reviews:

 

Tiles of Reim by Alice

I liked the element of puzzle gameplay in this.  The storyline was OK -- I'm not big on stories, but this was well executed and integrated.  I enjoyed the overall style of the graphics too.  I should play games like this more often.

 

Dartmoor Finch by Jack Oatley

Well done overall.  I didn't think I would get into this at first, because of the slightly retro pixel style.  But it was presented nicely with pleasant music and sound.  And the graphics were well made after all.  But mostly, the gameplay kept me interested.

 

Taco Quest by Detective Pixel

Not too much to say, other than it was good casual fun.  I liked the music and graphics in this game.  Very simple, but enjoyable.  Quick and easy to play.  Nice entry. bada bing.

 

Xandu vs. Skandy by Dadio

Did I love this?  Or hate it?  Maybe a little of both.  The graphics were... compelling.  The gameplay was fun but difficult.  I couldn't last longer than 10 seconds or so... why am I still playing this?

 

Another Fleating Day by MrMagnus

I normally don't go for story-based games, but this was interesting.  A bit slow to start, but not overly so.  And the story was told bit by bit as the game progressed.  The graphics were nice -- who knew I could identify with being a single pixel on the screen? Anyway, fun overall even though I couldn't get very far.  I'm not skilled at jumping and similar stuff.  But I enjoyed this.  Nice entry.

 

Other games I enjoyed:

 

Big Foot Small Ball by TerraFriedSheep

When We Were Young by Robo

Little Nicolas by Nocturne

Titan Tighten by NAL

Digital Drop by Parakoopa

Well! It's voting season, and you all know what that means!
COUNTLESS HOURS PLAYING COUNTLESS GAMES, THAT ARE COUNTED TO BE 56 AND GIVE THEM A COUNTLESS RATING FROM 0 TO UNDEFINED AND THEN USE THAT RATING TO RANK THEM INTO SOME SORT OF A COUNTLESS LIST OF 56 VOTES AND THEN WRITE A COUNTLESS REVIEW THAT IN A COUNTLESS WAY OVERUSES THE WORD COUNTLESS INCORRECTLY AND GRAMMATICALLY COUNTLESS TO GET A FEW CHEAP LAUGHS.


This jam was a great jam and I saw a lot of awesome games that I really hope will be further edited, developed and finished. I had a lot of fun reviewing this time around and this is the first time for two or three jams where I manage to get trough all the games. without further blabbering let's get to the voting system.

 

x<100 = below average.

x>100 = above average.
x=100 = average.

uhhhhh. I might add the scores to this post if I have the time. I'm rather hard pressed atm

 

A game with 200 points is thus twice as good as the average game and a game with 50 points is half as good. 

 

:( :( :( :( :( I'm sorry, I just didn't have enough time to review all games. :( :( :( :( :(

 

With that out of the way, Let's get on to the reviews. they are ordered alphabetically by the name of the author.  Thank you all for a wonderful jam and I look forward to seeing what you can come up with for the next one.

This has been Mr.Magnus, enjoy your day and happy jamming. 


 

reviews, sorted by the name of the author.
