Tower of Riddles game has got to be one of the best riddle games I've ever played anywhere. I think it deserves Featured in its Category =)
Awhh, thank you! That's so nice! I'm really glad you guys liked it, though I do have a lot of mistakes to fix. That said, I haven't read any of the featured mystery/puzzle games yet so I can't say if it deserves it or not.
Oh, it's 100% worth featuring. Ioved it!
It could replace:
The Creature 2
Riddle of the Sasquatch
It's quite a ways better than both of them. How it stacks up to the rest would be up to the individual rating, personally it's my favourite puzzle story.
Riddle of the Sasquatch wasn't very good. The puzzle/mystery section doesn't have many amazing featured stories though.
I agree that it's better done (and rated) than the Squatch game...
That actually sounds really interesting. I'm gonna play it! ^_^
... I actually thought the game was pretty good... And then I got molested by aliens
Yeah, what's up with that? I hate it when that happens!
Especially all the probing and stuff. :p How does it get decided which games get featured anyway?
One of the admins (Most likely 3J) would feature or unfeature games.
Okey dokey! ... Sure hope the admins like riddles ^_^
So, I finally read all the featured puzzle games (except for JFP which I can't figure out for the life of me.) Found it hard to compare Tower of Riddles to them all, 'cos they're all so different.
Jurassic Fairview Park is in a completely different league in terms of length and difficulty.
The Object was pretty awesome, I loved how it kept looping back to the first day.
Dangerous Memories was really cool with the amnesia, and I think it had the most mystery out of all the mystery games.
I really liked the setting for The Free Hand and how everything was all spooky and surreal, plus I liked figuring out how to use all the items.
Creature 2 I actually loved. It didn't have much writing but I liked how you had the choice of different characters that used their different skills to do different things.
Riddle of the Sasquatch was cool 'cos you got to learn about the legend and it was more linear than my game in that while there's only one (or two) right endings, you do get to explore a bit before you get there instead of just going from one place to another.
So I'm just curious, what is it about a game that people look for in the site? I guess quality of writing and length of the story are big factors, but also I've found from reading comments that the biggest drawback from a game seems to be that it was too linear, which my game definitely is since it just goes from one room to the next with no branching out except to die or get hints. So what do you guys think is the most important factor that makes a good CYS game? Just so I know ^_^
I never saw this thread before. At some point I'll look ToR over :)
If you haven't already, here's a reminder to check this story out. It's an entertaining and clever little story with a nifty twist at the end. Definitely still worth consideration for featuring in its category =)
I definitely think it should be featured over Riddle of the Sasquatch.
I agree there, it's got a much more engaging storyline then RotS.
D'awhh, people are still talking about this game? I'm all flattered ^_^
Are you sure youre new here
Depends if 2 months counts as new.
You have been here for 2 months? Damn time flies.
Nearly 2 months, yeah. Seems longer to me
Officially I've been on here for 8 months, but I've actually been on the forums for 4 months. Time literaly flies by, never thought I would stay here for so long.
... AHHH! Where's your glorious mustache?
This Christmas is not a great one for Aman.
I actually felt. This is one of the few- if any - times on the internet that I've actually felt anything for anyone that wasn't anger.
We need to mourn this loss.
Awhh cheer up Aman! Look, I got you a present! Merry Christmas! ^_^
None are as good as my old one..... WHY DID YOU HAVE TO LEAVE ME!!!!!!!!!!
How 'bout this one?
Yep - that looks about right - a small red 'X' where Aman's 'stache used to be haha!
I can't even see my present.... This is all Dr. lucky's fault!
How comes I can see it and no one else can? That's weird.
Could you just post the link?
That's plain ugly. My mustache had class!
How about a Poirot mustache? He's classy! ^_^
I miss my mustache! It was so beautiful, so, so, so....... Perfect.
I know Aman, but he's gone to a better place now... Mustache heaven! The coolest place ever!
Aman did you sacrifice your mutache to the Shoggoth?
I've been on the forums for a little over a year now and I still kind of feel like a newbie. Time really does fly on this site.
I second this notion! Here, Here! I just recently played TOR and adored it. Briar_Rose really out did herself with this one!
Awhh thanks so much! But TOR was actually my first game, so technically I didn't out do myself with that one, I just... Off did myself with the others
TOR should definitely be featured. It's got very good riddles and effort put into it.
It really should be featured. It is so much better on many levels than the lower two of the other featured stories in that Category.
Just played this game recently, and I whole-heartedly agree. Tower of Riddles should definitely be featured.
Awhh, thanks! But Avery M's better ^_^
Brilliant storygame, I love the riddles! This should definitely be featured! Also, what's the answer to the 'Evil Lord's' riddle? I've tried every option, and I die every time!
That one threw me for a loop. I'll give you a hint, why is it hard to find a baby polar bear in a snow storm, because they are white...
Ok, I finished it, but the badge doesn't sow up on my profile! Do you have to click on it or something (I've already done this)?
Yeah, the thing with the badge is annoying. Basically, the only way to get it in your profile is to copy it, paste it on your computer, save it, upload it into your pictures and then put it in your profile. Is why most people who won don't have it
I didnt do that
At least i think, it was so long ago
You didn't... How'd you get the picture in your profile?
Yes im sure iddint upload it.
I copy and pasted i guess?
Will do! Maybe you should tell people to do that in the description so there's no more confusion!
I honestly didn't know you could do that
I think that this storygame should replace "The Free Hand". In terms of length and difficulty, this is much more appetizing than the obvious choices in that game.
But 'The Free Hand' is very well written and has rather good use of items.
