Depot: Alex the Allegator 4
by hanaMephitisAlex makes me smile :) The 'limitations' create a nice effect and are done right to make an entertaining game.
by jambonbillIt's awsome, gameplay, graphix, and music !
by Hard RockJust finished playing this on my GP2X, it ran rather well aside from minor skipping (which caused me to die a few times), and aside from a few other bugs I ran into it was definetely and enjoyable and well written game.
by emilbVery well done, I saw no problems with this game. It's easy to learn and fast to play. One problem I have is that I get headaches but that's just me... I get it from any game of this type, such as megaman or super mario as well.
by vixinuGreat game, can't beat the 6th level, but great! Grafix are neat, and for this game improve it!
by uri gorenone of my favourite platform games ever. fun gameplay, challenging and doesn't get boring
by jamyskisThe style is certainly interesting, but I'm not sure if it's really necessary to imitate a Game Boy, the limitations of which have always grated. Nonetheless, the game is very good fun and the chip music is nostalgia-inducing.
by EnforcerToo simple for today but somehow quite fun! Brought back a lot of memories:)
by RickI don't enjoy the style, but everything about the game is well done. Looking at the code almost made me go blind though.
by Gideon WeemsStrange how it's supposed to play like a Game Boy game but ends up feeling new and fresh, you know? Alex 4 is lovable--down to the last pixel.
by drewIf there's any game in the Depot which deserves five starts, it's this. Everything about this game, from the music to the graphics to the gameplay to the map editor, screams excellence. The faux Game Boy style is pulled off brilliantly and takes me back ten years. Wonderful.
by Karadoc ~~Simple and fun. Such is the style of Johan's games.
by KanzureAlex4 is fun, playable, and really hits the spot if you're looking for a game that you can come back to, much like the old Super Mario.
by BillybobAwesome game. I couldn't stop playing it. Music was great, didn't get annoying, and had just the right amount of difficultly to it. Great job!
by rastloreOnce again Johan has made a very very excellent game. Not only did he make a great game for us to play, but he also released the source code so that we may learn from it. Wicked job Johan, congratz on another awesome release.
by Member #12The framebuffer linux port plays smooth like a silk. Excellent game!
by amarillionI love it. Although this game is clearly heavily influenced by mario and other nintendo classics it has plenty of original elements. I especially liked the level design, the later levels are little works of art. ... gameplay is everything!
by RashThis polished game is more than just the sum of its parts; by combining a few gameplay ideas with a professional design, Johan Peitz clearly demonstrates to have mastered the art of game programming to satisfying effect. A Stayer.
by Ron OfirGreat game!!!! Too bad it doesn't have a port to linux...
by PoVRAZORA slick game, and you know it!
by GameCreatorAlex 4 is very professionally done and quite enjoyable. The map editor and the unlockable mini-game are nice bonus treats for those who like extras. Looks great. Sounds great. Plays great.
by Todd CopeThis game is awesome. It's gameplay is so simple yet so fun. The graphics rival those of commercial Gameboy games. The music and sounds are Gameboy-esque but not annoying. Excellent!
by Nadim RafehiA bit lame, but sort of addictive.
by spellcasterNice little game with gamebox look and feel :) You can run, jump and roll, there're lots of hidden goodies you can only get with some thinking. The game is great... and it's not even finshed yet :)
by nowizThis game was fun! Love that Game Boy-feeling! Keep up the good work!
