Smarties Quiz Smarties Quiz

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not a bad start.

Some of the questions were downright funny, although it did get annoying having to restart all the time. All in all, not a bad quiz/weirdness game. I hope you keep making stuff.

Mastermind: WC Mastermind: WC

Rated 5 / 5 stars

A classic game!

Truly the work of a... mastermind...?
Lame jokes aside, an altogether excellent game. It feels like an actual computer strategy game, like a finished product. That's a refreshing thing to see here on the portal.
I love the way you actually have to use strategy in this game, the way that it makes you think.
I look forward to more awesome things from The Swain!

Beautifully done!

Such a wonderful game. It got increasingly more diffucult, but it always stayed fun to play. It was also such an excellent idea. I loved all the little stratagy elements, and the achievement just made me want play more!

Great game!

Custom Guitar Custom Guitar

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Neat concept...

...but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.
Not to be overly negatve, because I really liked the idea, but there's just not much to do. The body shapes wear out quickly (and leave out a lot)., the color choices aren't really that varied (and a lot of the 'classic' colors are absent) and a lot of the pick ups don't fit the bodies correctly (and there's no p-90s, and that's a damn shame).
That said, I eagerly await Custom Guitar 2. I love the concept and I do think that you put a lot of time and effort into this, so I can't wait to see what you'll come up with.

Armada Tanks Armada Tanks

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


I felt this game was pretty mediocre. The music was great, but the controls were stiff and the graphics weren't particularly fancy. Normally that wouldn't be too bad, but not that many people charge twenty freaking dollars for a flash game (not to mention a flash games based on an old Nintendo game. You expect me to pay $20 for something that isn't even original. I can download REAL Nintendo games on the Wii for a fraction of what you're charging).
NewGrounds is not a store. If you are going to make games, that's fine, but don't expect us to pay $20 for some unoriginal game that's merely decent. If you want to make money with your flash, either spend more time on them, or put ads in them like any decent flash animator. $20 for this game is just ridiculous.

The World's Hardest Game The World's Hardest Game

Rated 5 / 5 stars

An excellent game.

I thought this was a wonderful game. It was simple, but not in a bad way. The levels kept me interested and I couldn't stop playing.
As for all these people like BoracicHunter giving you 'feedback' like: "Good job, you just learned the basic methods of making a square graphic move in macromedia flash. This is obviously just to cover up for your lack of ability", well, seeing as how you have a long list of submissions (most of which are quite good) and BoracicHunter "Still hasn't contributed anything to the site" (and made an account back in '04), I don't see how he has any right to comment on your Macromedia (actually Adobe now) Flash skills, as he has none.
I figure that everyone is complaining about the game because it's just too hard and they have no patience for it. This happens anytime anyone makes something here on NewGrounds that actually requires brainpower to appreciate. If you want a high score, you better make either video game parodies or dick joke/porn movies (however, I would hope that would continue to make games/movies that are as good as if not better than this one).
Anyway, that's my rant. Great game, it had a wonderfully simplistic style that contrasted nicely with the in-depth level design (and the music was pretty good, too). Keep up the awesome work and don't the opinions of ignorant idiots get you down.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


Great game! It reminded me of all the old SNES LucasArts games (Super Star Wars, etc) that used to piss me off with how cheap they were. This game is very challenging, but also very fun, and I love the atmosphere (character design, sound design, etc) I also love the fact that your character can't attack, so you have to figure out a (usually) non-violent solution.
Another thing: I am pretty dissapointed at how many people put reviews with things like: "It's to (sic) hard. I vote zero" or "you played crap old man slow and ugly againt all torture machine (very fast machine, I wonder where they get electricity)". If the game is too hard, thats\'s not the developer's fault, it's the gamers fault. Learn how to actually play a real game before complaining because it's too hard. Everyone's been getting too lazy with all this fancy 3D gaming that they've forgotten how to play a good old fashioned twitch reflexes platformer game (which is what you've made).

Good stuff.

I thought that would've made a perfect Wii minigame or something, with its simplistic yet entertaining gameplay. And to nepherdium, I thought about making a joke about the whole white/black thing, but it seemed too easy.
