The Zodiac theme was flawlessly integrated into this creative and challenging platformer. OMAG took this challenge seriously, and rose to it with a respectable classic-inspired, boss-filled platformer. Graphical effects are very well done, and the original soundtrack is inspired. Excellent work!
STRONG POINT: The professionalism present in the game: in-game menus, cutscenes, and adherence to compo theme.
WEAK POINT: It needs more diversity to the types of challenges to add some sophistication and variety to the levels. At this point, the most variety is in the different bosses.
I enjoyed this brief, tiny-sprite-styled platformer. Although it was lightly-connected to the theme in comparison to the other entries, I still felt it a fitting part of the collection. The platform engine seems solid and the climbing feature is a very nice touch, although I do think the developer "painted themselves into a corner" and had little more to go on in terms of level design. Also, the player must keep up with save points or may find themselves respawning in mid-air (for some reason, platforms will disappear in distant, previous frames). I appreciate the game being a non-violent puzzle/dodging platformer, and the scorpions serve as a suitable puzzle-like challenge without resorting to a kill-to-win mechanic.
STRONG POINT: Light-hearted gameplay and puzzle elements.
WEAK POINT: Game is short and would benefit from more involved level design.
A beautiful and familiar horizontal shootemup that doesn't tread any new ground but still satisfies. The game provides a host of potential enemies in the form of zodiac-inspired aliens. LordHannu is an accomplished artist, and his work shines here, providing the player some enemies ranging from the exotic to the bizarre, though still clearly inspired by the classical Greek Zodiac. The game is unfinished, leaving me wanting more (and unfortunately lowering the game's score).
STRONG POINT: The artwork: sometimes weird, sometimes, super-cool, always professional and evocative.
WEAK POINT: Curses... Big Game Fever strikes again! Please finish this game, LordHannu!
