Tower of Riddles should be featured in Riddles Se

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

or

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...

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 ^_^

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.

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 cheeky

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.

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)?

Tower of Riddles should be featured in Riddles Se

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 cheeky

Will do! Maybe you should tell people to do that in the description so there's no more confusion!

Tower of Riddles should be featured in Riddles Se

I honestly didn't know you could do that cheeky

Tower of Riddles should be featured in Riddles Se

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.

Tower of Riddles should be featured in Riddles Se

But 'The Free Hand' is very well written and has rather good use of items.
