Depot: Pinpin game
Overall Rating: 8.7
- Usually those not real programmers are the best programmers around... Nice concept of crash bandicoot :P Anyway, focus on other ideas. I want to encourage you, giving a 10 ^_^
- SFX and graphics are nice. I love the animation and evading fish. It has major control issues, though. Acceleration and max speed is too high and significantly reduces the fun factor. It would be more kid-friendly: without help text (kids can learn through trying); with automated level transitions; if number of penguins to find was highlighted at level start.
- Great game even if it's lacking a bit in the "original idea" part :P I do have a few notes though: the help text pops up too often, the penguin is a little hard to control and penguins do NOT live in the north pole. You could at least get your facts straight if you're making a children's game...
Not a 'real' programmer, but like to program now and then, and Allegro is a great help to me. Esp. not having to know anything about windows, and still make games using DirectX (while also running under DOS and Linux).
Thanks, Allegro! (View Profile
