I was amused, but this game could use a tune up
I love kingdom hearts, and I enjoy final fantasy style stuff. So when I played some of the rpg element, I enjoyed it, but I think that's the nostalgia kicking in.
A major problem for me was the text box, gray with lime text? That hurts the eyes, not to mention the text box itself is unattractive to look at. Some of the stages were a little messy as well. The story itself wasn't all that thrilling either, it's a case of "Let's go here""Okay""We'll stop you" I don't see any epic storytelling here.
I'm also disappointed that Roxas wasn't playable as a guest, he was just a decoration that talked to you. Granted this segment was very short, but I think what would have been interesting was to explore the areas with Roxas and just enjoy the trip with him.
It was mostly like a slide show to me, granted it's more interesting than a slideshow, but less interesting than a typical game.
People need to see this.
I played your game all the way through and I am in awe. As a fellow sprite animator, I can understand how long this took you. You must have hand drawn everything. The neighborhood, the trees, the cinematic, all of it was phenomenal. I'm sure this took forever to make, but it was all worth it. I even liked the robot boss, the style of it looked like something from the 80's, very nice.
I also noticed you haven't got enough good feedback from this. I've been there. People just don't want to give sprite movies/games a chance. This needs to be on the front page. People need to see and appreciate the work you've taken into making this.
Don't give up. If this doesn't make front page, just keep trying. Soon enough people will notice.
I like the concept and the ideas but....
I have NO idea what's going on. When I start playing, I have no bullets and if I get too close the tornado kills me in one shot. I tried walking backward, and I tried looking for weapons but to no avail.
Also, in order to play again, I have to watch the intro again, which is great, but not after watching it so many times, it needs to have a skip scene feature.
Now, I may be reading too deep into this. Perhaps the entire point to the game is that the tornado can't be stopped and mankind is soon to be doomed, then again, I don't see too many games where Nazis win the game, but I'm probably not reading too much into the game. Yeah, Wolvenstein 3-D have you fighting Germans, but you still can win.
Perhaps you were intending to just make this a joke or not. I believe it's supposed to be a game. So I'm not sure if there's glitches in it or not.
Phew, I talk to much. Anyway you did a good job with this, which is why I wanted to critique this in such a specific manner. Okay, I'll stop talking.
