"Sketch" from Gimme5games "Sketch" from Gimme5games

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice variation on a theme

This looks great and plays really well. Yeah the percentage calculation algorithm could do with a bit of improvement but I doubt this is a trivial piece of code to write so it's forgiveable. Keep up the good work ;)

Nice work

Yep, that'll do the job. Original concept, nice graphics, solid difficulty curve and nicely polished. This is why I come to Newgrounds, to enjoy the work of skilled programmers and artists ... it was even fun with a laptop touchpad. More of this level of quality please.

Good work

Well done, very good implementation of something that isn't trivial to do. The music is synched well with the key presses and I like the addition of holding down the ASD keys, it really adds an extra fun dimension. Nice to see people developing in AS3 as well, hopefully this will up the quality bar of free Flash games.

A reasonable effort

The idea is good but the implementation lacks a little for me. My main problem is having to control the actual movement of the character, I just don't think that it's necessary, Diner Dash etc. just lets you click on the station you want to go to and the walking is handled automatically.

The isometric graphics are nice but controlling a characters direction in these environments is confusing and frustrating ... IMHO. The goal of the game should be more about multi-tasking the different machines, not getting from A to B as quickly as possible.

Brilliant ... but slightly frustrating

The gameplay itself is awesome, it feels the way it should (physics are nice) and it's very addictive.

As a constructive criticism for the next version I would make the landscape generation less random and the difficulty curve on the objectives a bit more balanced. It's kinda down to luck at the moment, whether or not the right type of building is generated.

Maybe introduce levels (with tougher buildings appearing later) and generate a wrapping landscape at the start of each level which stays destroyed. This would allow people to memorize where certain buildings were and remove the element of luck a bit, unpredictability killed the longevity of the game for me.

Other than that, very satisfying and amusing ... better than Rampage IMHO.

Coolio

The hi-scores were as low as 1.001 so they had obviously been hacked but the table has now been cleaned up a bit. You'll now get on the fron t page with a time less than 3 seconds ... bring it on !!!

A little bit too random

I thought that the point of these games was to press the keys in time to the music so that you got into a rhythm. The directional arrows seemed completely random to me and disconnected from the music, apart from the speed that they moved. I actually did better with the sound switched off. Maybe I'm just musically inept ?!?



Dawn of the Bod Dawn of the Bod

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good clean fun

Another nice looking and fun to play Bod game, I'm really getting into this genre ... let's have some more please.

Initially it seemed a little too straightforward but there's hidden depth with the bonuses. I now find myself trying to juggle the heads as much as possible, the most I've had on a single level is 53 and I was juggling 2 big heads at once ... slightly twisted but very addictive.
