I picked this up this week.

 

How has this had nearly 2000 downloads, yet only one review in six years? Anyway, I submitted a review and it is awaiting moderation to appear.

 

For anyone 'on the fence' - short version - this is GREAT.

 

It encapsulates everything I've tried to put in my own games:

 - simple to learn

 - hard to master

 - fun but challenging

 - punishing but fair

 

Couple of hours into this and still going. Might need a new thumb soon.

 

Well done to all involved, it is quite obviously clear this was well thought out during design, and tuned to perfection during testing - excellent game!

 

 

It was fun helping RT with this. Once I started helping him I play tested with all the free time I had. He impressed me every night. I would tell him about bugs, timing issues, difficulty, bounce ideas off of him, etc. and practically every night after work he would already have a new build with everything we discussed addressed in it for me to test for the next build. I think I still have all of the different versions on my Harmony Cart which is many because he didn't stop pumping them out until neither of us could find anything wrong with them and he couldn't fit any more into the ROM. It was just a blast, RT is brilliant, and I want to have his babies.

 

Thanks! It looks like your review has been approved:

Thanks! I

 

No, thank you for taking the time to not churn out 'yet another generic batari basic cash grab' and producing something of this quality. Especially in the fun department :)

The quality is because he focused on every single detail. For an example, even how the pause screen was implemented was important to him. He insisted that the game not be shown when paused because it could be unfair if people cheat. I explained how it is unfair not to be shown because you could die from not remembering where your character is. So, he decided to make it fair in both ways by only showing your character. Another one is that the body doesn't just change colors to show damage and taking in energy but is based on the idea of some sea creatures using bioluminescence to express themselves.
