Nice animation on the cat's tail :) You should definitely consider producing a more elaborate version of this with lots more stuff to click on, as you've made a really nice start. It just needs more to keep the user's attention after the first 30 seconds :D
thanks. I shall keep that in mind.
You're right, it's very simple but sometimes simple is best. I was expecting it to be quite bland but I had loads of fun with it. I dunno, maybe I just really like playing squash. Awesome stuff!
Interesting take on the simgame concept
Overall, I like what you've created here in terms of the concept. I like that when you earn money, you have to actually complete a real task, for example manipulating food items when making noodles, rather than just clicking a button to earn gold. A lot of sim games are nothing more than glorified spreadsheets with a few graphics added, so I like that yours isn't like that. I also like the customisable options in the game, such as buying clothes, since this also moves away from the cold mathematical side of sims and makes it feel more like a game. However, there are a few areas which I think require improvement. For one thing, the instructions are very brief at the start of the game and the subsequent interface of buildings is quite confusing. You might want to add a short description under the names of each of the buildings so that working your way around the game is not a lengthy trial and error experience. Some user exploration is good but it can get quite boring to have to work out every aspect of the game yourself. Additionally I found the fonts used to be quite hard to read and they become even more so when words you roll over change to something else.
Lastly I would like to commend you on attempting to move away from games which target an exclusively male audience to the point of misogyny. It is true that there are a lot of female gamers who are looking for games which target their interests and represent them positively instead of as fapping material. However, I would like to respectfully suggest that *all* female gamers are not violently offended and disgusted by hentai. Women like pron too. What would be really cool would be a hentai game that specifically targets female gamers, rather than the current situation which is "pron for the lads, cuteness for the girlies".
Keep up the hard work :)
Awesome piece of coding, well done. Probably not as much instant gratification as would be needed to entertain your average NG user but don't let that bother you.
This is a nice improvement on your other game; the closet was a really cute idea, maybe you could develop it further? The clothing options were good too, though I'd say the way to improve them more would be to increase the variety of colours as well as the styles, eg. have stripy stockings or something like that.
I think the best way to improve from here is to look at some of the really awesome dress ups on NG eg. the Dress My Babe series and draw inspiration from there.
This is silly.
Come on man, you spent ages telling everyone to install flash 9 when your first attempt didn't work. You even went so far as to tell people they had shit computers. Now you've suddenly realised that flash 9 wasn't required to make your flash work and you're saying we should all be using flash 8 instead. Double yoo tee eff?
Have you noticed how nobody else on newgrounds has to specify a specific player for their stuff to work? That's because their stuff isn't broken.
Similarly to some other reviewers, I too have wondered how a sound-heavy flash could possibly be so teensy as to be 57k. I'm guessing for the same reason that it doesn't work: it's either a really abstract prank or a really dumb mistake.
Just go and ask them who have Flash 8, they will tell how well it works!
I was really surprised by this, it's great. For one thing, everything you told the viewer to do was correct and made sense, unlike the majority of tutorials that cover button making and other simple aspects of flash. I'm sick of seeing "ok lol now i show how to make button: first, do something retarded, second, do something that is unecessary and wrong ..." I guess I should be more sympathetic to people learning flash but those people shouldn't be making tutorials, dammit -_-
Anyway, I also love the layout you chose, it's so clean and simple. It'd be great to see your tutorials on the more complex aspects of flash ^^
Thanks very much for the review dude. Its nice to see your first submission being enjoyed by a nice amount of people rather than being blammed for being a noob. Thanks for keeping my spirit and motifation up!
This was fun, reminded me of Chips ^^
There are a couple of things I'd suggest to improve it, such as a replay button on the "game over" screen, easier to click "next level" buttons, and maybe a less garish background. Other than that it was good, maybe add a few more levels and make it harder? I'd look forward to it.
Cool soundboard. Sounds like the raid leader is a dick, which makes for stressful raiding and hilarious soundclips. Could use a preloader and maybe less abrupt sound cut offs, but other than that, I liked it ^^
Yeah i will make sure to do this on my next one. I just need more content.
I had fun with this - the choices of clothing are quite original and your colouring for the whole game is co-ordinated and soothing, unlike a lot of games where some idiot does everything in screaming primary colours.
I agree with what other reviewers have said about adding things to the game to improve it - sound, animation, backgrounds, etc. Another thing I would suggest is some system of organisation for your clothing items. I know there's not a lot of room, but a line of static text or something equally simple saying "makeup" with the eyeshadow items under it would really help a lot as it took me a moment or two to work out what some items were supposed to be.
Another option with the makeup would be to have it on the doll already and to click a button that makes it visible/change the colour. This can save more space for the bigger clothing items and feel a lot more sophisticated to play.
Anyway, I hope to see more flashes from you, this was good ^^
