Rules are quite simple, you post your game, I will then review it. Although, the grading will be based on a 10 point system which all of the points will be added up and divided by the number of categories and that will be your score.The current grading rubric is;
How well the art style fits the game or theme. I would prefer that you don’t use premade sprites because that’s literally lacking some imagination and might cost a few points alone.
How well the style fits with the gameplay and how the theme is perfectly identifiable in your game. How easy is it to notice the theme or style in your game
Does your game bring a new age of modern gaming, does it include its one original play style. Even if your game is based off of another game, does it at least show that you made it your own or custom from the original? If you completely copy another game and has no exact new gameplay or ideas, this might lose a few points
This one is a recommended category, meaning when you post your game, you decide whether or not you want your game to be graded on difficulty. Although this would only apply towards platformers and rage games.
This includes like credits, a menu, extras, just some minor details that can help enhance your game. Although this can include other in game features so don’t worry if you don’t have a menu or anything, you can still get a pretty high score.
This includes the storyline, the main goal of the game, and maybe how cool the ending is. Although this one will mainly be based off of story or the main goal, having a cool ending can guarantee a pretty good score.
This is about all I can think of on a grading scale, if there is anything that you would like to see added then let me know.
Now to make this review forum a little different from most others. You may have noticed that there wasn’t a sound category, although sound is a major building block for many games, my device literally doesn’t play sound very well for some reason so I can’t really grade a 0/10 most of the time for there being no sound so i figured that I won’t accuse you of my computers mistake.
(Very Important!) When posting your game, make sure that it’s a more newer based game or something that hasn’t been reviewed much. This also rules out all Flowjam games. I just want to see something new because there were a few times when someone started up a new review, most people post the same exact games everytime and I kinda want to see something new. Now if it’s a game that you’re currently working on and you haven’t updated it for a few years, then I don’t mind. But if you post a game that’s been sitting on the shelf for a few years, I probably will still review it, but I would recommend not doing so. Also, because of my poor device, I can’t be able to play really huge projects (the main reason I can’t review flowjam games) cause my device won’t load anything in and if it does, it’s super laggy.
Sadly, I have to place some of these caps into place because I don’t want to disappoint someone after they submitted their game.
Note: This is my first review topic so I don’t want people to get the wrong idea or get upset when I do give them a low score, but I will include feedback on how you can make your game as good as some of the featured games and then let me know for a rereview.
Features/Earnings: I might have weekly or monthly contests on the best game submitted or just the highest score, but I don’t really have any way of giving out rewards or anything. I might use a badge or something that you can add to your game when you win or get a good score.
