  1. Do we send a trackback to this post? I just downloaded one, I’ll have something up Thursday or Friday.

  2. Anthony – It would be easier if you leave a comment so that I have an email address to send the game to. Otherwise do a trackback and contact me through the about page so that I know where to send things over.

    Thanks πŸ™‚

  4. You can get some ‘indirect’ feedback by posting your game to Millionsofgames.com.

    People will play it, tag it and rate it which should give you a good idea of what they think about it.

  6. I’d love to do this however my blog is officially dead until May 1st, how irritating! I may review one when it’s back up (prize or no prize).

  7. Rob and Chris – thanks a lot. Your copies of the games have been sent out.

    Sam – that’s a shame. I may continue the promotion in the future, am waiting to see how things go – but you might be able to get free stuff anyway πŸ™‚

  8. As a newbie to casual games, this was my first game under the igLoader technology that I played for a prolonged amount of time. It reminded me of Bejewelled and as such, I would expect this game to do really well. A few things that count against it compared to the highly acclaimed competition would be that the action stops when you run out of strings, where the game could have been engineered to keep the player locked in to progressive (all be it slow for poor players) curve, this way to draw in the gamer and not let them leave without finishing one-last-level (in the case of Bejewelled). The graphics are nice, and a few extra on-screen effects would make all the difference such as sparkles at random, fades in and out and perhaps a little more shine and polish to the menu buttons and text. The game itself does not allow you to ‘easy’ plan a sequence of victory ‘pops’. That is to say, you have to play a while before you get the hang of how to do it. A casual game makes discovering the sequence much much much easier, almost obvious. This again draws in the player by rewarding them early for thinking ahead from the very first click. The music is repeating over and over, which would normally be fine, but it’s too short and their is a noticable gap when it loops, this can become annoying in an indirect sort of way. It is amazing what sound does to your player, without the player even noticing! I think it would only take a few more weeks of tweaks and polish to propel this little game into the limelight. I really do. I am bias of course, as I love these type of pattern-finding games. I make so many critical observations only because I like the game so much πŸ™‚ Great stuff, well done.

  9. Lee – really I wanted a review on your blog but since it’s you i’ll let you off. Wouldn’t do that for anyone else though πŸ™‚

    Steven – thanks a lot πŸ™‚ I have sent Rocket Boards and will send over Super Gerball soon.

    I reviewed Dr. Germ, only game I could play on my Mac. I really enjoyed it, I love puzzle games. Keep up the good work, I wish I could try the others too, especially that Super Gerball one.

  11. I’m not slacking off. I just wrote that comment then went away for a weekend πŸ™‚

    They’re sent now. Thanks peeps.

  13. I asked for honest feedback – and that’s what I expected. Enjoy your game πŸ™‚

    BTW it looks like someone at the underdogs forgot to renew their domain. I wanted to check out that game you mentioned but it didn’t work. Will have to google it instead.

  14. Oh, yeah. Sorry about that. HOTU should be up soon. If not, I’ll probably host the game myself.

  16. OK, the first of the two reviews are up… Power Boards of course. Yeesh open office says it’s 2000 words and it isn’t even the one that my family is most excited about. My son has asked me 5 times to day if I’ve posted the review of SuperGerball yet and I haven’t even started writing it up yet.

    Here’s the link for the first review:
    http://www.thecodecave.com/?p=71#more-71

    I reviewed Power Boards first because with some simple changes, mostly outside the game, I think this could be your cash cow. However, the two games that most excite me and my four kids are SuperGerball and SETH’s puzzles. I just wish the free game limit was three and not two. πŸ™‚ (AND NO! That isn’t a hint. Two games is very generous and a GREAT idea.) I’ll be reviewing SETH’s simply because I want to. It is a VERY good unique game and I want to reward unique.

    MUCH better! (I’ll quit spamming your comment log now. πŸ™‚ )

  22. Brian – Thanks for that. You should have your game already πŸ™‚

    LAN – no link? Sort that out and the game is yours.

  23. LAN – the game will be on it’s way shortly.

    MASA – ‘fraid not. Post the review on your website and I will happily send you a copy. Sorry.

  24. James- thanks for that. Downloading it now, will be interesting to see what they did.

  25. HELP!

    what happened? When I open the game I get memory access violation.

    I tried reinstalling, uninstalling and the works and nothing happened.

  26. LAN – all I can suggest is you redownload the game. Maybe something corrupted the install. I’ll check the full version to see if there are any problems but if the demo works the full version should too.

  27. Hey here is my Rocket Boards Review :- Act of War I really admire you for making games since thats my ambition too. Hope I’ve done the review good enough. πŸ™‚

  28. After you install you can run it once when it says: Launch game.

    But afterwards when you click a shortcut or run the main exe it will bring up the error

    Sorry for the triple comments.

  29. Asish – The promotion hasn’t eneded but I am currently on holiday so haven’t had much of a chance to send out emails. Check your mail now and it should all work fine.

    LAN – try running the exe directly from the instal folder and the game shoudl work fine. I think I know what the problem is and I will look at sorting it out when I get back home.

  30. Hey, I wish I had heard about this earlier. I like your games, and the chance at getting 2 for free is cool. I’ll review some soon, and maybe I’ll review something other than Rocket Boards and Super Gerball πŸ˜‰

  31. My friend mentioned this website. If you’re still in business, I thought I’d take a crack at the gerbil game. Review to be posted on livejournal.

  32. Long time since I downloaded the full game Rocketboards after giving a review to leave feedback but I was busy with my cybercafe. I must say that’s some game you made! The demo doesn’t do justice to the game (But you are kind enough to provide a demo unlike some I know) The amateur level is perhaps the best in the whole game.

    Could you perhaps port this game to Ubuntu Linux? I know that’s hard but this could be one of the best games on the limited games for the Linux platform. Do try since Ubuntu and the Open Source movement is achieving new levels in popularity. πŸ™‚

  33. Super Gerball and Rocket Boards look great. Can we still get the full versions?
    Thanks.

  34. Hey everyone. You are still more than welcome to post reviews. I decided to run this indefitily so feel free to review away. As long as you post a review on YOUR website and not mine I’ll send you a game πŸ™‚

    Ashish – I’m afraid Linux versions are totally out of the question. All my games are made with Blitz3d which is tied to windows and Directx. Sorry.

  35. Is this offer still available? I would love try this out. Thanks so much.

    -Nicole

  36. Absolutely. Anyone with a website is welcome to get free games for reviews. πŸ™‚

  37. I thought Bubble Bomb was too similar to other puzzle games (even if I love those games!) but it’s gotten me into your games and I’m downloading Seth’s Puzzle Box right now.

  38. I didn’t do a review of your game on my blog but
    I did download and play your demo of gunwing. I
    I really liked, it had a classic space fighter look feel and to it.

  39. Are you still giving the full version of a game with a review.
    My email address is [email protected] and I have posted a review at
    http://www.freewebs.com/crochetfriendscharity/myblog.htm

    i really love the game Bubble Blitz.
    Can I have the full version

    Bubble Blitz Game
    I just played your game Bubble Blitz nothing

    went wrong while I played. I liked playing it I

    think it’s a fun game to play. You can see

    everything nothing is to small where you have to

    squint to see it. It loaded fast I hit play and

    started playing game. It’s an easy game for kids my

    8 yr old son was helping me play I think it’s a good

    game to teach a little one colors also. I like the

    quality of the game.
