Although really similar to the other Thing-Thing Arena's, this one is somehow much more pleasing. A lot of the features like the graphics and gameplay are still similar to the past games, but some of the new stuff is pretty interesting. The executing mechanic is entertaining, the guns are enjoyable to shoot, and killing enemies is fun as hell. One of the great features that's included in this Thing-Thing installment are the achievements- these achievements are interesting because they provide a goal for each time you play a game, like killing 100 enemies with only one type of gun. It's stuff like that that adds replayability, thus making the game much more enjoyable to play.
The obvious Guitar Hero clone formula was done well in this game, and the design of gameplay was implemented greatly. Sometimes the graphics seem to leave a bit to be desired, given that Guitar Hero seems to have quite a few more high-end effects. Fortunately, that slight flaw can help those who are using older PCs and otherwise could recieve crappy frame rates/lag which could interfere with the game. Speaking of who's using what kind of computer, laptop users will probably find the default layout of controls difficult to use since... well, they can't use it.
The few flaws aside, though, this is an impressive and enjoyable rhythm sim.
I like to think that this game's simplicity is not just fun, but definitely very puzzling. The mechanics of the actual portals work really well; getting the right speed and timing- just plain fun. Mixing a platformer-type game and a puzzle interactive couldn't be better.
Having known that this is based off The Orange Box's game, I feel that this is still a very original and amazing game, and I'm postive loads of effort went into it. Just loads of fun.
I like how the items are kept orderly and organized, instead of being all out of place like other scene creators. Except, I'd rather call this a "Consternation" Dressup mainly because it features only characters from MC7.
The blood looks cool, the character graphics of course look snazzy, and boy, I LOVE that song.
So, if anything, add quite a few more sprites to keep the crowd entertained, maybe add a function that allows users to turn the music on and off (in case of those who get annoyed by the music), and more backgrounds, perhaps.
And thanks for putting my alias on the wall =]
A review from Derosa!?!? awesome. thanks fo the review. yes i know that song is AWESOME. In V2, ill add more stuff.
The graphics and animation highly lack in quality. But the actual game format is designed fairly well, I suppose.
Mainly, the game lacks, visually. Work on that a bit, and see if you can produce something of better value.
Creative and down-right fun
This is a game that perfectly defines the genre of fighting games. The attacking animations are clean, the models look fantastic, and, overall, the game just feels great and pleasing to play.
Congrats on your hard work.
That's the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I LIKE IT.
This is the real way a Pac-Man flash game should be made. A nice, smooth platfomer with a great Pac-Man theme added to it.
It's a pretty fun game, so KUDOS.
That's shit's fun man.
Yeah, kinda hard. I had fun playing with it though.
I lol'd at the end, too.
Good job, Luis.
my only opinion is to just try to give it more accessories.
even though i'm not a ppg fan or anything, this kix ass though.
Yeah I'm still working on the extras. Blossom is the only one with accesories at the moment because she had the bow at first but there will be more to choose from soon.
I promise you, it's going straight to my favorites. I'm gonna need it. ;-)
