Bloomin' ummers! That looks awesome. Downlaoding.

Good game. Very very fun with a nice overall style.

Some English translation erros though.

I haven't played it yet, but judging by the screenshots it looks like your monitor wasn't calibrated properly when you made this game.

Nick! this is style of this game and McO look at other of his games! Great game, maybe there are some English translations errors (don't worry I didn't translate it ) but we aren't native English speakers so what do you want

This actually looks pretty awesome - I love that graphics style haha! *d/ls*

Oh god no, that font is horrible.
Please change that so it's actually readable? >__>
Posted by jbjovi 29th September, 2007

Good job, really great game, except for the font, as already said. Jump should be improved a little too... maybe.

I think the graphic style is awesome and unique. This game is awesome. thumbs up.
Posted by Fanotherpg 29th September, 2007

Font isn't so bad it hold climate and style. The music is awesome (I'm still listening to Soundtrack).

yeah, the font is readable even though the "a"s look like blocks. It fits the game, don't change anything.
Posted by Tropik 29th September, 2007

Good game! Good graphic and good sounds! IMHO - 95%!
Posted by alastair john jack 29th September, 2007

the graphic style is so incredibly hot!!
Posted by lamberski 29th September, 2007

Thanks all I don't know what happens with font. On my PC everything looks fine.

what is the font called, maybe i dont have it
Posted by lamberski 29th September, 2007

Default Windows font: MS Sans Serif.
Posted by Del Duio 29th September, 2007

Nope, everybody should have that.
Posted by Imadjinn 29th September, 2007

This game gets the thumbs up for having the best text ever. And I'm not saying that to be sarcastic or to put down foreign English, it just is fantastic. "And I was going to play with jigsaw puzzles..." That's gold. And I haven't even played it yet.

Cave Story has a playmate. No, I don't think I'm pushing it with this comment.

Love the talking, the music, the sound effects, the effects (doors opening = <3), the game. It's all a big ball of success.

I'm desperate to find out what that Zenek Bochenek(sp?) means. Seeing it behind the train made me go WTF.

McO, a winner is you.
Posted by waffleton 29th September, 2007

Haha, played more now. This is wonderful <3
Posted by Guru Rinpoche 29th September, 2007

It's definitely good and well put together, but Cave Story's playmate? That's like comparing duke nukem 3d with Half-life 2. Or Bon Jovi with God.
Posted by misieksamgame 29th September, 2007

Cool game, cool graphics, cool music, cool humour.
Imadjinn, "Zenek-Bochenek" = "Zenek-loaf", but it rhymes in Polish language
Posted by Hotspot Jones 29th September, 2007

I like it! It's very fleshed out (I attribute the English errors to Zenek being a zombie), and fun to play. One thing though: I died at one part, and when I respawned, my character was BEHIND the background.
Posted by Sne 30th September, 2007

Grammar and other errors in spelling are present also in Polish version. Consider it as a climate-building attempt After all, Zenek is a zombie.

Zenek-Bochenek could be translated as Zenek-Bottleneck to preserve nonsense and rhyme.
Posted by Fanotherpg 30th September, 2007

Currently errors from Polish version where deleted (Author corrected text after publishing of ZZ..) It is my GOTW
Posted by Blueberry 30th September, 2007

Wow, lovely graphics.
Posted by DaVince 30th September, 2007

A font should fit a game, but also still be readable. A's becoming blocks is bad.

Downloading now.
Posted by DaVince 30th September, 2007

Oh, looks like there is a problem with the font sometimes. First time I ran the game, the font wasn't antialiased correctly and barely readable, but second time things looked just fine.
Posted by Imadjinn 1st October, 2007

On a couple of occassions there will be no text in the balloon. I was lucky with the 300 coin choice because I chose no blindly and got the best magic from the guy later on!

Oops, spoiler. >>;

Okay, I finally tried this game out on a computer that didn't have admin restrictions. I like a lot about this game- the graphics are good, the presentation is awesome, the parallax effects are great, the humor is GREAT, and I like how everything and its mother has a particle effect when it's destroyed. There's nothing wrong with the font aside from the rare occasion I couldn't read what one or two words said.

However, and I'm being honest here, I got sort of bored when I played it for any length of time. I think a lot of it has to do with the repetitiveness of a lot of the worlds and their enemies. What was worse was that I really got the idea that this whole game is utterly huge, and that I'd have to play through these same types of great big levels forever in order to finish the game, and I don't think I'd have the patience to. (The secret areas are cool though, I did manage to find 3 of them so far.)

I did put in about an hour or two playing ZZ, and there's too much that's good with it to give a thumbs down just because it's not my cup of tea, so I won't vote at all to make it fair. It's a solid platformer with good ideas and great humor. I liked the music a lot too. I have lots of respect for someone like you who chooses to do it all with your own game (program, music, graphics, story). Good job!

Damn those skeleton dogs! And I think I recognize some of the sfx from Little Fighter 2...not knocking it, of course.

Plus, the Ghost who gives you the mission to collect the crystal shards was hilarious.
Posted by Guru Rinpoche 2nd October, 2007

Is Zenek more of a Frankenstein's monster or reanimated corpse? He looks like Lurch actually
Posted by DeadmanDines 8th October, 2007

It was good, but I thought the movement (while VERY solid) was kind of basic.

A tip for future dialogue scenes; When you can't squeeze it all into one speach bubble, make it obvious that you're going to flow to the next one.

Most RPGs that I know do stuff like a "-->" or "..." on a new line.
Posted by yaror44 12th October, 2007

Very good game
Posted by DaVince 22nd October, 2007

I like.

Yeah, Zenek rules! You seem to really understand color - nice graphics! I wish all these excellent games were something other than side-scrolling platformers, but oh well - if they're good, they're good.

Wholly crap, it's already been a year since this was released?!

Anyone else just visiting this page for the first time today because it's on the front page? Looks good and I just scrolled past a whole lot of positive comments. Checking it out for the first time now.
Posted by Toadsanime 20th October, 2008

@Nim - Yep, that goes for me, too. I've not heard of this game before it was posted on the front page. It does, however, look rather excellent.
Oh, and Nim, your Falafel avatar totally rocks.

Great game you got here..

but you got 2 problems in the game:

1)Not enough action (that makes me bored a bit

too early)

2)the spelling mistakes and grammer,

" besides that you did a great job!! *thumbs up* "

I just finished this game then. 'Twas awesome, though I couldn't find all the artifact pieces

I must admit it had me hooked for a few hours, very good graphics and level design!
