Review and bug report

Very playable Q-bert clone. I didn't think that with just Strawberry Clock that it would be any challenge, but it was.

Anyway, the bug happened on Level 5. I had used up my bombs and was giving SC chase. I found that I could leap through him, so I attempted to complete the level. I don't know if we happened to land at the same time or what, but all of a sudden, the sound of the land mine goes off, I'm back on top of the pyramid, except that I can't move. The game appears to lock up at this point.
Also, when I win extra land mines due to score, they don't show up like the extra lives do.

Pineapple Remix: WE Pineapple Remix: WE

Rated 4 / 5 stars

OK, the game engine is solid...

The voice work for the various commentaries is professional sounding and dead on the the game. I like the variation on the loader. And it's easy to play.
Having said that:
1. Why press a different key (C) to continue? Why not keep it on the space bar and still have "S" to stop? (This is a nitpick, I realize)
2. It would add a lot of variety to have a series of different funny animations for the pineapples (like 'Whammy') detailing how the money is disappearing. You could also develop a series of clips showing exactly what 'prizes' are won as well.
Overall, it's a well done piece of programming. Very playable. Just add a little more style and you'll have a big hit on your hands.

ADnD Flight - Level I ADnD Flight - Level I

Rated 4 / 5 stars

A good demo

A couple of points.. isn't it supposed to read THAC0? (To Hit At aC 0), and although the hits seem accurate, You didn't factor in the consequences of rolling a 1 or a 20.
Other than that it's a great first effort. Could almost be used to demonstrate how AD&D works.. maybe with a little text describing the factors involved..

Moon Patrol Moon Patrol

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very good.

This managed to remind me of Moon Patrol. The feel of your game is very similar to the arcade game, and duplicating the feel of a game is no mean feat.
The graphics and animation were great and consistent in style. The sounds worked out well too.
My only complaint is the size of the playing field. One, I wish it were a little wider so I might have to ability to back up a bit more.. and two, when starting an area in the middle of password, I wish there would be a little time between starting and approching the obstacles, so I could have a moment to prepare before a ditch or boulder is poised to smash the car.
All in all, a nice success. Good work!
