I liked this game a lot, but then I tried slither.io. Slither.io has actual multiplayer instead of fake multiplayer, and the score in slither.io actually works while in this game it's bugged, starting to behave strange with steps at 54k, 59k, 65k, 74k and capping at 89k. Slither.io also does not have the annoying loud MLG sounds. Plus point of Snake.is MLG however is that you get notified if a snake hits you. I prefer the real multiplayer and working score though.
Scores is fixed now
Already played on the rusty lake site. But yes it's great, a pretty long one, and the in depth story continues :)
FIguring out the underwater craft controls, and what had to be done to complete the part with the weighed fishes, were the most challenging parts for me.
I had to replay because I entered the underwater part before looking at the 4th lighted up drawing on the wall and it was impossible to go back (I just wanted to see what it contained)
A minor bug: at the last part of the underwater craft puzzles when its controls get broken, it's possible to move the craft up. But the story still does as if you're at the bottom of the lake.
Llove the CRT graphics! Excellent rendering.
My only gripes:
You cannot play again until you typed your name. There should be an always present "play again" button, not only sometimes present. I did not realize that, and was not bothering with sending highscores. So I thought the "replay" button was to play again, but it was not, I was very confused why it did not respond to my controls but used the old ones in black and white, and thought this was related to some overarching "evil glitch" plot that also involved right click to go back in time but that did nothing, I didn't get it and was on the verge of stopping playing.
Second, when I figured out that you needed to type name, I pressed backspace, but it instead went back to the previous newgrounds page.
Thanks for taking the time to review it, I'm going to check the issues you mention.
This entire series is amazing! The atmosphere, the depth, the audio, I enjoyed your games for multiple evenings exploring every corner of them. Thanks!
Thanks for the review, and I'm glad you liked it.
Great one! I enjoy all your games, but this one is more complex than usual, which is awesome!
Hi, thanks for making so many fun games!
This one was a bit too easy imho though... so much dialogue, but all is resolved by a single clue. And even so, someone else could still have bought that thing from there (not giving more details in this comment, he he), it's not such huge proof... so I was disappointed when it was anyway.
Very good idle game!
Only very few remarks :)
-no indication of when it saves. Refreshing the newgrounds page may make you lose a minute or so of progress. How can I know for sure it'll remember I really upgraded that monster before I turn off my PC?
-no way to export savegame to a local text file or clipboard, sorry but that is essential functionality for clickers ;p
-"multiple buy" button is not ideally placed. Right above a scrollbar, so if you use the scrollbar to scroll up and release mouse above the button it gets clicked unnoticed
-the multiple buy button is annoying anyway due to its amount of modes to toggle through - a separate small button for each multiplier would be handier. I only use "1" or "max" by the way
When the old man told his name at the end:
OMG, so unpredictable! Who could see that coming! What an unexpected twist! ;p
Awesome, loved the twists and especially narration.
A few bugs noted:
The "sub"titles are not synchronized well, they appear up to 10 seconds before the voice is there.
On the second screen, if you try going to the left, you may fall down under the snow, and cannot swim there.
the "subs" have been removed
I found this game amazing! The pixel graphics are beautiful. Chapter 4 was awesome and a game on its own, with some of its concepts taught by the earlier chapters. I drew a map of the contents of all sections on paper. Only the last chapter 5 was as commented before not nice. The first part of it was fun if you open the game with chapter 1 in another browser to follow along. But then those black screens with white squares after that were frustrating and missed the nice graphics. And in chapter 4 it's only by pure coincidence that I saw the dark red platforms with the music notes, that could've been made more obvious, maybe by introducing the music notes in chapter 3 in a simpler setting. Why did a guy in chapter 4 say I wouldn't come back when dying in the temple? I tried it out on purpose due to curiosity, good thing that I didn't have to start over. Overall still fantastic, one of the best games I played on newgrounds lately!
