The Crigence Critique 3
Leave your Flowlab game here and i will give you a detailed analysis on what i think is good and bad about the game in the comments as well as favoriting your game! My reviews are also targeted towards readers, not just game devs! Keep that in mind if a comment seems out-of-place

If you want, you can also resend your game once you update it and i’ll review it a second time! Please keep the amount of games you send me 3 or less. And PLEASE remember: This is just my opinion!

To keep me from getting burnt out (Which is common among reviewers who go by submissions) I will ONLY take games submitted here as Suggestions. Meaning i only review what i wish to review

I have worked all long time on this game. I am still working on it. But its playable the save function is broken right now so Im fixing it. If you think its to hard keep trying because my friends have been trying for 1 month and they finally beat level 1. Its called Johnny Boy.io

I think this game is now ready enough to be reviewed.

Thanks to everyone for posting! I’m going to start reviewing every game now! (I’m checking out Starblast 3 as i type)

@CrimsonBlackGames
Well, i played the game! Here’s the notes i took while doing so:

+High quality graphics (For Flowlab standards)
+Good music!
+Pretty and unique style

-Confusing
-Game froze upon going to the shop and clicking “Arena” (Could be my bad computer though)
-Play, classic. high scores, special effects. What am i listing? Buttons that didn’t work for me.
-Every WASD key made me go up and shooting didn’t work either. Keep in mind, i tried with the mouse AND arrow keys!

The game was VERY buggy for me to the point where i could barely even play it! It does seem like it’d be a fun game though if i could actually play it correctly! Keep in mind, ALL the following scores are based off my experience:

Scores (Scale of 1/5)

Graphics - 5
Music - 5
Controls - 1
Stability - 1

Final Score: 3/5.
Sorry for the rather harsh review, the glitches just REALLY brought the game down for me!
I’d be happy to review the game again once those bugs i encountered have been fixed!

Recommendations:
Fix the bugs, or if this issue is somehow tied to my computer, optimize the game and keep working on it! ~Crigence

@MagmaDude100
Played the game, here’s what i took notes of:

+Pretty good and responsive controls!
+REALLY overpowered guns… Yeah i know i called that a positive.
+Runs well
++I didn’t find any functionality bugs (There WERE visual bugs here and there).

-REALLY simple graphics (Reminds me of the Atari 2600)
-For some reason, the main menu gear which normally means settings was help.
-A death animation for the zombies would be nice!
–What’s the point of playing the game? Is there even a end?

The game REALLY did feel like a Atari 2600 game (Take that as you like), and by that i mean there’s no sense of direction, the simplicity is off the charts and it’s really just junk-food in the form of a game. You won’t get much out of playing it and it’s just kind of there.

Scores (Scale of 1/5)

Graphics - 3
Music - 2 (Yes, i know he’s using the free version of Flowlab.)
Controls - 3
Stability - 4.5

Final Score: 3/5.
If you think this game has potential and want to see it grow, the creator of this game set up a Patreon where you can donate to him and help him finish the game! If you DO donate to him, tell him i sent you!

Recommendations:
Add a ending and different kinds of zombies! ~Crigence

@nkbulider
Well that was… Interesting.

+Decent graphics
+Easy to understand gameplay
+Pretty fun!
++I don’t want to spoil it, as this genuinely caught me off-guard: But beware of level 3.

-No main-menu, you just kind of jump right into the game!
-The attacks are garbage! It’s better just to avoid the enemies if you can!
-No sprint button!
-How was i supposed to know collecting all the keys would open that one door!?!

For a game of its kind, A Stick Game is a surprisingly good game (Especially by Flowlab standards!)! It was genuinely fun to play and a pretty good way to kill time! If you got through all of your games and don’t know what to play, try this out! There are worse ways you can be using your time.

Scores (Scale of 1/5)

Graphics - 3.5
Music - 2.5
Controls - 3
Stability - 4.5

Final Score: 4/5.

Recommendations:
Make what you need to do more obvious and then it’s golden! ~Crigence

@rcreger
Alright, even though i barely know what Dr. Who is. Here’s my notes:

+Ok controls
+Ok graphics (Despite them being mostly default in Flowlab)

-How was i supposed to know those were lasers and they would hurt me?!
-No menus at all
-Lazy ending
–YOU GO BACK TO THE START OF THE GAME IF YOU DIE!!!

Like i said, i’m not really qualified to review a Dr. Who game but i AM qualified to review a Flowlab game so i did my best!

Scores (Scale of 1/5)

Graphics - 2.5
Music - 2.5
Controls - 2.5
Stability - 5

Final Score: 2.5/5.
If i had to describe my opinion on it in 1 word: Mediocre.

Recommendations:
DECREASE THE DAMN DIFFICULTY! ~Crigence

@Crigence
WOW! thanks for the awesome review, I’ve already started work on fixing some of the negatives. In the meantime, if you feel like it or have the time to, can you please review my other game (side note: I know it’s unfinished, but I just want to see what you think of it so far (I’m restricted to 5 levels btw)):
