I bought the full version of this game.
The game in itself was great. I enjoyed every minute of it. The big thing that troubles me is that I paid $15 for a game that took me exactly 2 hours and 45 minutes to beat. And by beat I mean found and retrieved all 20 of those little trinkets and got the second ending and mini game. I am just as disappointed as I was when I played Portal. The full game is just to short and has no replay value for its cost.
Bottomline: it is a well-made, enjoyable game but is just not worth its $15 dollar price sticker. I recommend for others to play-through the game, but no blow $15 dollars on it as I did. Wait around, there will enviablely be a free version floating around somewhere.
Another great expansion of the Shift series. A few new surprises and bunch of extra secret stuff thrown in for replay value. The only let down is, other than the new innovative expansive map design this game just seems to be a slightly altered version of the previous two games.
I would recommend straying away from the solid puzzler design and focus on more platforming elements. Running through a maze, collecting keys, and unlocking doors is getting dull. There's plenty of way to include more action oriented elements to the game. Look at the old Abe's Odyssey/Exodus for the PS1. That there was a great game that combined both puzzle and action elements.
I say give the Shift series a rest and work on a new project. You can always come back to it a year or so from now and revamp it with more content. But releasing one Shift game after another at this rate will bore your audience. I'm sure you can come up with a more exciting and larger scale game.
On a side note: No, I didn't down vote you when I couldn't find the reset button. =)
As an actual fact I'm workign on somethign completely different and lots of fun at the moment :)
Thanks for playing and offering advice.
Best Platforming Game on Newgrounds.
I love everything about this game. From its old school roots to its innovative action oriented triggered events that you come across throughout each level. What really impressed me the most was the total lack of repetition throughout each level. At every twist and turn something new was thrown at my face, making me quick to think and react. What impressed me even more was how detailed each level was. There were alternate paths, hidden secrets, powers, etc scattered throughout the playfield, which offered no annoying deadends or pitfalls, which is an amazing achievement considering the sheer depth of each level.
This is officially my current favorite game on Newgrounds. I look forward for ANY future developments coming from the pixeljamgames team.
It was a really nice game, but I felt that the learning curve was very steep. There is a lot of things that you have to sit down and learn before you can play the game. Either way, I did enjoy playing it.
Also it appears to be origional, so extra points for you. I must admit that I did laugh when I died for the first time.
That was hard! You should expand on this gaming idea.
This was great!
I had a good time playing this little game. I really love the artwork and simple gameplay. It wasn't difficult but it quite enjoyable. I'll recommend this game to my niece and nephew next time I see them. =)
What a great game. It's crisp, fast, very easy to pickup and best of all for a great cause. Not to mention that skydiving lambs are involved, which I really love. Overall, excellent work here.
This is a really great game. I like how made use of some isometric programming. But, I only have one real complaint. Everything is too small. I had to strain to see everything. You ought to make a larger version of this optional so that important details can be seen with ease.
Most Origional Game on Newgrounds
Very impressive. I can definately see you guys put a lot of effort into this. There's a bit of a learning curve, but that goes the same for any other great game. I hope to see more games in the like of this. Cheers!
Nice one bruvva!
