Review: Blobs Adventure
The presentation is good! The menus are all nice and clean, but the mouse cursor was a bit annoying to move since it's pointing upwards instead of diagonally.
The gameplay is good, but golly is it hard! The level design was very creative and I really liked the gravity mechanic put into it. But one complaint I have is that the enemies don't even move, they just stand still and don't really do anything to you until you touch them by accident. Also, the breakable blocks were pretty much pointless because they don't have collisions, you can just ignore them and continue.
The graphics are good, but I wish there could've been so much detail on the key sprites, they look like they belong in an Atari 2600 game,and don't really fit in a game like this. The backgrounds could've also had some detail as well such as adding clouds, a sun, or anything. Instead, it just looks really bland. But the rest of the sprites look pretty good!
The sound effects are ok, and I say this because there are some sounds that just didn't really fit in the game very well such as the sound that plays when you collect the big coin, it's just the 1-UP sfx from Super Mario Bros., it could've been a different big coin collecting sfx like the one from the New Super Mario Bros. series. Also, I wished there was a sound effect for when you shoot the projectiles, but the rest of the sounds are pretty good. The music is the best part in this category. Even though I've never played Mega Man 9 and 10, the tracks were still pretty good and really set the mood very well, but the one track that I've managed to recognize and liked was the boss theme, it's just the boss theme from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and it's great! I also liked the game over and level finished themes, both from my favorite Mario game of all time, Super Mario Bros. 3!
The lastability is ok. Since the game is hard, it'll take you about 30 minutes to an hour to beat it, but there is a bonus level to play which will take a lot of time to beat. I understand this is your first game, but I wish there were more levels or at least made the levels a bit longer.
For those looking for a bit of a challenge on a platformer, Blobs Adventure is a good game, and I would definitely recommend it to everyone, but don't expect 2-3 hours of fun because it ends pretty fast. If you wanna spend so much time on this game, just wait until you get to the bonus level, and Prox276, you did good. Not a bad first game, keep on trying and one day you will make something even bigger and better. Nice job! ;)
