The Tower > Blunder bob

The Tower with a Star

Yeah, most definetly. But not by much! Blunder Bob was a good story.

The Tower with a Star

Blunder Bob was good, but too short.

Amen

I don't think Blunder Bob was that good actually. The Tower would easily surpass it.

True. But I've at least finished Blunder Bob... Man the Tower is long! I've been working on it on and off for a few days now!

Mattias is almost exactly 100 pages longer the nthe tower.  Mattias is onlt the 4TH largest on the site.

I SWEAR I finished the tower. I only got the mediocre ending though, so I tried doing the quiz and now I just can't do it. I really did finish it though. Kind of.

I believe you, cuz its unlikely you'd even know about the quiz without beating it..

I decided to restart the tower, and in a half an hour, i am almost done, im at chapter 9. Its not very long at all, there are a few spots where it is buggy... i dont understand why we cant "comment" on certain parts as "out of the blue" death scenes weaken the game, so when i finsih i will include taht in my comment. Also, there are parts that dont make sense, as if it was rushed, however, i find this game much nicer than Mattias, with Mattias it seemed too childish, this one is more mature. Should it really be considered an "epic" its quite short, i found the Walmart game to be longer (the difficulty added to this) and remember, the number of pages doesnt determine its length, because if it did, then you would be determining it by linearity, the story can progress in many ways, so having alot of pages makes no difference (thats my reason for not calling it an epic) All in all 6-7/8, we'll see after it is done, btw, i think this your best game so far... as i said, it was more mature, and enjoyable :)

o, i had forgotten, i wanted to tell you that your Track is buggy, i made 2000 gold without cheating. You should develop a better system, and have no "refunds" because that is not realistic at all. Just a suggestion :)

The Tower with a Star

alrigth, so to make the ending  better, with scripting, you can have a different "ending page" for each chapter.

E.g. in troll canyon, if you were to "die" (and i realize it is because vitality equals 0) then you could have

"A swarm of trolls invade the area you are standing and you are lost...." whatever.

To do this, in simple words:

If the chapter = 1 //(chapter 1, in my words, but we can check the real id in ur game)
Then
If Vitality = 0
Then
Display PageId 23 //this page would be the "death" page for chapter 1
If the chapter = 2
Then
If vitality = 0
Then Display Pageid 24 //this page would be the "death" page for chapter 2

 

Now obviously there would be more, and also it would be in actual scripting...

I decided to restart the tower, and in a half an hour, i am almost done, im at chapter 9. Its not very long at all, there are a few spots where it is buggy...

You make me laugh, if you restarted it then you know where to go AND you dont have to reread all the pages SO OBVIOUSLY ITS GONNA BE SHORTER!!

I dont understand why we cant "comment" on certain parts as "out of the blue" death scenes weaken the game, so when i finsih i will include taht in my comment

Because I already know what I need to know about this, I've settled my mind and I told you not to comment on it because theres no point filling your comment with stuff i couldnt care less about.

Also, there are parts that dont make sense, as if it was rushed, however, i find this game much nicer than Mattias, with Mattias it seemed too childish

Oh yeah definintly, Celtic culture, King Arthur, tournaments, fights and weapons.  Childish.. mhm.  I mean comon ancient groups and a treasure "cube" is much more mature.

Should it really be considered an "epic" its quite short

(He repeats himself).  Yes Tower is not an epic, then neither is basically anything else.  Cryptode isnt much longer.

i found the Walmart game to be longer (the difficulty added to this) and remember, the number of pages doesnt determine its length, because if it did, then you would be determining it by linearity,

Because Cryptode isnt linear right.  And Wal*Mart is not long...  The only reason it TOOK YOU so long is because you obviously get stumped easy.

All in all 6-7/8, we'll see after it is done, btw, i think this your best game so far... as i said, it was more mature, and enjoyable :)

That Supposed to be an insult?  Pretty danm feeble. Pfft a 6... Thats funny.

, i had forgotten, i wanted to tell you that your Track is buggy, i made 2000 gold without cheating. You should develop a better system, and have no "refunds" because that is not realistic at all. Just a suggestion :)

Well, maybe you hadnt realised that the difficulty is only a six.. Plus money does not determine your score so whats wrong with having some extra funds...

Yup cuz scripting was out when I published it right? (Actually it was but I was already 3/4 of the way done.. No point in changing it)

i think solo has every right to make a comment about what you can work on. thats what the comment screen is about. also, the comments are not just for the author. they are for everyone to see. if you dont want people picking your game apart, dont publish it before its flawless. then, that way this site would never have any games published by anyone. lol

also, you obviously failed to see solo's compliments on the game. he said this was your best game yet.

Someone obviously cannot take constructive criticism... Nate pretty much summed up what i would say.

First of all it was a compliment, it was an overall positive comment. I want you to notice at the bottom of my comment "Well Done"

Second, You are not perfect, there were flaws in your game, dont come with excuses as to the comments people make on your game. My comments are for others to see, not only for you.

You make me laugh, if you restarted it then you know where to go AND you dont have to reread all the pages SO OBVIOUSLY ITS GONNA BE SHORTER!!

I restarted from the first chapter, i had no idea what link to choose, and im sure alex has records as to how far i progressed (by page id, i believe since scripting is now in place) so you can even check with him.

Because I already know what I need to know about this, I've settled my mind and I told you not to comment on it because theres no point filling your comment with stuff i couldnt care less about

Your not the only one who reads these comments, and it really is a game flaw, i was nice enough to give you a suggestion, thats called constructive criticism, your not a baby, you should be able to take constructive criticism, dont you think?

Oh yeah definintly, Celtic culture, King Arthur, tournaments, fights and weapons.  Childish.. mhm.  I mean comon ancient groups and a treasure "cube" is much more mature.

Your language and the storyline was childish, meaning you were childish, not the genre. Basically, you could have had a porn game but be really immature and make jokes about it, the genre is mature, however you are still childish. In the same way, you picked a mature genre, except the way you presented it was childish.
For the record, i said The Tower was better than Mattias, that is defined as a compliment... As to the attacks on my game--- Ancient groups hmmm well the Illuminati is one (da vinci code, lara croft, to name a few), the "treasure cube" was the device that carried the diamond, its a container.... (the cryptex, or codex or whatever in da vinci code is quite similar to this) It can also be associated with suitcases and money, suitcases hold the money just like the cryptode holds the diamond...

Because Cryptode isnt linear right.  And Wal*Mart is not long...  The only reason it TOOK YOU so long is because you obviously get stumped easy.

What is your arguement here? every person who played Walmart found it difficult, are you an exception? The walkthrough provided doesnt count, we (meaning the old timers) had no help at all for this game, thatguy was not helping us at all, and notice he never (when he was around) personally attacked a member for a bad comment on his game...

That Supposed to be an insult?  Pretty danm feeble. Pfft a 6... Thats funny.

For a writer, you really dont understand english do you, i said this is your best game by far... you say, "pfft a 6" i gave my reasons for the 6, i dont need to go over them again, and i didnt pick through every page in your game to find bugs, these ones are all obvious, so im not even TRYING to find errors. It seems all you expect are 8's, your blind then to not notice that there were flaws in your game, so many flaws cannot result in an 8.
Do not say i expect 8's from cryptode, frankly i dont give care about the ratings for that game, ive stated that there is a bug at the end. That bug has affected my ratings, I do not fuss over those ratings.

Well, maybe you hadnt realised that the difficulty is only a six.. Plus money does not determine your score so whats wrong with having some extra funds...

I would ask that you read the entire sentence, "Just a suggestion." I care about how the difficulty is, im telling YOU that there is a bug at the Track as I had made 2000 by betting 7 times, sometimes my money doubled, sometimes it went up 5X and sometimes it was refunded to me... and in a way, money does seem to determine score because you need money for weapons and weapons help you fight enemies, which give you score after a victory. Its your game and you didnt realize that ?????

Yup cuz scripting was out when I published it right? (Actually it was but I was already 3/4 of the way done.. No point in changing it)

Scripting came out before you began the Tower. Here is how i see it, to enter this contest, you need to create a game between Oct 31 - Jan 31, well guess what, that means the earliest this game could have been started was oct 31, scripting came out at the end of summer vacation, that would be end of august, early september. So yes, you could have had better death scenes, instead you took an easy way out, and it proved to weaken the game. Which also leads to the question that if you did start this before scripting, is it eligible for the contest? based on the rules, no, however we do not know when it was published because your argument is skewed.


JJJ, i want to restate that it was a comment, it was based on credible facts. Comments are also based on an opinion, and therefore people have different opinions on different things, you cannot believe that your opinion is the best opinion, or then we would not be living in a democracy.

You still had a part of the game completed so you know where to go to get back to where you were going.

Your language and the storyline was childish, meaning you were childish, not the genre. Basically, you could have had a porn game but be really immature and make jokes about it, the genre is mature, however you are still childish.

(the cryptex, or codex or whatever in da vinci code is quite similar to this) It can also be associated with suitcases and money, suitcases hold the money just like the cryptode holds the diamond...

Yeah but the Illuminati did alot of pretty danm cool things, they were alot more complex then just some random group.  Plus the treasure cube is so cliche

Yeah well the fact taht you would call my best game a 6 is an insult.  You obviously dont understand english much better.

I would ask that you read the entire sentence, "Just a suggestion." I care about how the difficulty is, im telling YOU that there is a bug at the Track as I had made 2000 by betting 7 times, sometimes my money doubled, sometimes it went up 5X and sometimes it was refunded to me... and in a way, money does seem to determine score because you need money for weapons and weapons help you fight enemies, which give you score after a victory. Its your game and you didnt realize that ?????

I would like you to REREAD THE GAME PAGE.  I've told you i dont want to hear about this.

Hah see here is where you really show off your idiocy.  My GAME WAS PUBLISHED between those dates BUT you should know that it was created MANY MONTHS EARLIER AND Alex said it IS eligible.  Thanks, please do  LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH before posting retarted nonsense.  For a comment based on "credible fact", seems like alot of unresearched nonsense.

Dude, chapter 1, just drop it, your not going anywhere with this, what could i have done to know where i was going in chapter 1?

Yeah but the Illuminati did alot of pretty danm cool things, they were alot more complex then just some random group.  Plus the treasure cube is so cliche

Alright, so it seems you have no real argument against my statement, "some random group" still not childish, "cliche" still not childish...

Yeah well the fact taht you would call my best game a 6 is an insult.  You obviously dont understand english much better.

Your taking it as an insult, what you cannot take constructive criticism? I gave you feedback and reasons as to why I gave you a 6, and you are sidestepping all of them. How is it that I give you a 6, and that reflects my English skills? You obviously have no argument because you have not stated anything that should make your game better than a 6.  All you keep saying is 6 is an insult, not much argument there.

I would like you to REREAD THE GAME PAGE.  I've told you i dont want to hear about this.

I dont care if YOU want to hear about it, it is comments, i am welcome to say whatever i wish, and i can express my comments so that others can read them to determine the quality of the game before playing.

Research? Thats why i said, "the question is" It was a question, not a statement... read a little before posting retarded nonsense.

You really need to think before posting your comments, i dont know how you can argue about a comment that i made on your game. My comments contained both positive remarks, and negative remarks that were supported by suggestions. I do not know where your basis is for initiating an argument? The comments system is inplace for a reason, and you cannot create thread arguing about all the negative comments in your game, if your are going to act like that, don't publish them at all.

Someone is full of themself... if you think you've won the argument, kudos to you.

How can I be wrong for posting a comment anyways? if you dont like it, disregard it, dont whine about it like youve been whinign about it.
