Great graphics, maybe you could add some "moving" details to the backgrounds instead of just a picture, like, if the terrain at your distance is moving on x speed, the background should be moving on (x - 10) speed for example, its a nice effect and very simple to make
However, the "playability" is not alll that great. There are other games out there exacly the same as yours, with worst graphics and better gameplay, and pretty famous games actually, so what i mean by this is, focus on the gameplay... graphics help to get attention, but if playability do not match graphics, people wont play it more then once.
Anyway, i think you are in the right direction
From what you've said, I know you had a lot of work to get to this point, and I think that for learning purposes its fine, however... dont turn it EXACLY into a Pitfall remake lol, its too famous of a game to use the exacly same idea... dont tell me you have plans to add rolling logs and "scorpions" on a sub level and give the game a 20 mins timer... =P
That was like... incredibly gay -.- yet... im voting 3/5 6/10... after all the "game" seens to be well made, with nice sprites... but... too gay -.-
Well, thanks for taking the time to play it and review all the same. Both the description and the tagline do say 'gay' in them, so I hope it wasn't a surprise.
A bit confusing
It took me long enough to understand what I had to do on the game. Maybe a screen explaining it? And still I dont understand the "!" balls... well, its a simple but fine game, certainly you had some effort in it.
I just noticed I had to get the exact number like on my 4th time -.-
Indeed a very nice game. Way too similar with mario kart, but who cares, its a web game, easy to play, online, apparently no lag issues, great game, must have had a lot of hard work on it, and it was worth it certainly.
As I said, the only "negative" comment I would make is about it being way too similar to mario kart, but i could even say that its playability is better then the "original's".
Very very nice work
Normal, but works
This reminded me of a game from Atari, where you had to throw vases to kill spiders climbing the walls... and the spiders moved in various ways... +- like your bug =P
Well... its a pretty simple game, but it works. Not extremely mind blowing hahah but you know, some times what we need are simple games where you just go in there do your thing and get out. And the sprites are pretty good, even if not very animated.
Doesnt matter what you answer.... he will do whatever he wants... in the end, howard is pretty much self suficient =P
Other then that, it would be nice if text cleaned itself on enter, and maybe to make things more clear, you could make the options in another color... for example, instead of "Take the ball" make "TAKE (blue) the ball" so people know what they have to type. Not that it makes diference in the end hahah but...
I'm sorry, I thought it was kind of clear with the whole capitalization in the middle of a sentence. I'm gonna redo it, and it won't be that way if you type in exactly what it says. Thanks for playing though!
Also, if you know how to make the text "clean itself", please let me know. I will appreciate it greatly.
Too slow =/
It seens like a nice idea and stuff, kind of original, but way too slow... got me tired on level 2 already. But im sure there will be people who love it so dont get me wrong.
