The levels were nicely designed, It never felt like the game was being cheap, just hard.
The game slows down when lots of explosions happen at the same time and sometimes in that state the controls reaction also slowed down, It happened only in one boss battle, I think u can guess which one.
For those saying that it's too hard, you're not supposed to rambo. You better be careful and aim your attacks because you're slow as hell. Also you cant attack and inmediatly jump, so choose when to dodge.
Don't be scared of using your weapons, you get hearts before the bosses so no need to save them that much, just don't use the D button you will waste 10 hearts and it deals low damage.
Pick the book for the first boss and the pretzel for the others, the bottle and glove are hard to aim and the letter hits like paper (pun).
Anyways, awesome game, wish it was longer. It was nice to peek at the world throught kenji's eyes XD.
Very addictive game xD
It is easy to learn and so fun to play :)
I felt so proud of getting to the hot part, probably because of the music ^^.
I really enjoyed playing it, the art is amazing, and the music fitted extremely well :3. But I felt it was too short, the boss fight was nice but too easy, constantly sending flying the boss streched it a lot, I just had to stay in a single place and press A repeatly when the boss gets close then wait till he stops bouncing from the impact and repeat.
For some reason I can't double jump in the first lvls of hard mode, at first I thought it was disabled for more difficulty so I managed to get past the first and other 3 lvls with the jump+attack and then it suddenly started working ^^. I dunno if this just happened to me so I will give it 5/5 10/10 :P
In hardmode, double jump must be earned just like every other ability.
Thank you for the review though! Glad you've enjoyed Culmination!
U need to work more on gameplay.
Even after fully maxing the cloud shot, the interval was still slow as if I never upgraded it. The owl drops were too useless since if the baby needs a heal its because u're pretty much surrounded, same with the prince heal. I rather have some aerial attack from the owl than a random heal or a gem, I was so overwhelmed by enemies in the last lvls that I had to pray for the zap attack to be ready while running with the baby in hands . I barely made it in the last level, "finally a real use for the jump ability" I thought since I saw the winged guard, but it was just another lvl. As everybody before me said, it was repetitive and if I completed it was because it would be unfair to review it without finishing it.
The art and animations were pretty good, I got a bit laggy from the clouds lvl but it was still playable.
Its a nice and fun game but it has many glitches, I found this glitch near where you get the uzi, if u jump when falling u get into the wall above it.
In some parts of the game u can just stand on a place and spam shotgun and kill most of the zombies b4 they reach you. And if they do you just jump above em shooting to the floor and b4 falling use the double jump to stay on air.
The first 2 bosses are easy, the first one just spits when he is above you, so you can kill the zombies when you he is far and then finish him, and the 2nd one is just one of the chasing ones on steroids.
With the last one: If you stay with 2 shotguns near at max weapon range, you can blow the rocket and hurt him at the same time, and if you just keep moving and do lil' jumps the sword won't hit and he will run till the end of the plataform letting you shoot him. In 2nd phase, you can dodge every attack of him just jumping above him or staying far enough to see his attacks coming and jump. double jump when he is spinning or he will get you.
The stop motion was kind of useless, the zombies aren't that fast. Maybe if you add a edgy melee weapon, cutting down ppl on slow motion is always awesome ^^.
something weird happened to me :S, when it finished loading all the endings and game over movies started appearing one after another :S. and can't play it =_=.
but i played it like 3 weeks ago and it was cool :o.
It was nice :D but too short :(
Man this game is aweeeesome, Took me like 20 hrs to clear it with all the secrets and stuff, the alternative endings were nice too, Man it was so cool, now i know why the credits scene lasted like 10 mins.
Next time make the stages harder, and enemies so we can attack :P, cool ending animation xD. Hope u make more ^^
15 soon >:D
next time try to do it with a less hard to read font, and try a lighter background, dark bg tires the eyes and if u sum the fonts no1 will want to read it cuz ppl gets tired at the 3rd page =_=.
sheesh, its a tutorial in action script 2, u could notice that after reading some, if some1 thinks is useless can stop reading it and find one that thinks will be of use for him/her, there are ppl who still want to use this kind script so let them be x_x.
The music was really nice, but i think it doesn't fits in 40 pages tutorial, something more calm would do it.
