++ Amusing 'pun'.

+++ I heartily approve of you paying tribute to the series.

The name brought a smile to my face. But really, the flash added little, if anything, to the comments you wrote.

I felt this had to be done. :)

heh

I like the feeling of nostalgia with these.

The textbook turret seems far better in that it's not an obvious weapon and ammo is plentiful.

Anyway, this seems like an ingenious toy. I don't envisage myself making it but again I got a smile from reading about it.

Made me smile.

I like the idea of little 'tutorials' like this, even if I hoped that it'd be an abstract defense-clone, with text representing all objects and characters.

Anyway, my opportunities for such hijinks have passed, but I got a smile from the idea.

Some better presentation (neater graphics, maybe a soft bg tune) would be nice.

I liked 'ahh my eye!'.

The first thing that jumped at me was the unoriginality. A near-direct clone of a chicken-based G&W game. And that G&W game has been cloned many a time...

Well, at least this has more colourful graphics and more interesting music...

Talking about the music, it seemed to repeat itself a fair few times before it went into that lighter melody, then looping. I'm not sure if this is some wizardly with the sound object (manually getting stuff to repeat when ended, etc.) or if it's some repetitition in the tune itself.

The twist on the G&W game - pressing space - seemed to introduce a bit of luck and randomness into what's otherwise a game of planning. Not to my tastes. Also, it didn't make thematic sense. Maybe if you were to press space to make the mexican go and another take his place... and you could switch whenever, but it took a certain amount of time... and you had a meter to show how full the basket was... so there'd be a queue of mexicans lining up to steal food.... that'd mebbe be funnier and also make more sense.

I think having stuff you needed to avoid would also help it be more interesting.

Cool graphics, polished as always, but after a couple of goes, I was tired of it again.

humour is for the unintentional humour inherent to the food-dumping.

A beautiful background piece.

I think it works better without any actual rain sfx.

I find that this piece didn't work so well when I was sitting and listening to it through. I mean, like a previous reviewer said, whilst it did get pretty interesting with all the layers going on, I'd have liked some more variations, maybe some more little melodies.

You know My Latest Novel/Sigur Ros? I was thinking it'd be cool if it just had maybe the various instruments kinda taking turns.

However, when you're putting it on in the bg, it does work wonderfully as a chill-out piece.

For a laid-back game, it's about ideal. My only (very slight) gripe in that role is that I'm not too keen on the way it loops.

I'm gonna use it as the bgm for my new gametype if you don't mind.


LJCoffee responds:

Great - at the time of my response, I've already talked to you about some extra sxf for the game - I'm happy that you decided to use it though and I'll get those fx to you as soon as I can.

thanks again!

Thanks!

Brilliant tune.

I came back to it when I was looking for something to back my haiku submission.

Really original - classy oriental tune with funky backing.

One crit - I think the bmphs sound a little fuzzy, specially at the start. Also, I think maybe a slightly higher-pitched drum sound might work better.

I admit though - I'm not sound engineering dude.

I just really enjoyed listening to this.

I think you should make more stuff like this.

You==awesome.

P.S. I hate reviewing 'effort'. Seriously. How are we meant to know how much effort you put in? That category seems stupid...


LJCoffee responds:

Holy Bejeezus - I'm so sorry that I didn't respond earlier - I completely missed this review - I saw that submission btw - and it was excellent!

So damn groovy...

Loops seamlessly. So much going on. Doesn't get boring, even after listening to it for like 20 mins (which I just have). Perfect for some laid back game.

I'm gonna use this for the next version of my anagram game. Hope you don't mind.


LJCoffee responds:

Thanks - wow, looks iek you've used two of my tracks - I wish I had known earlier!

Glad you liked this and I hope to be able to create more in the future.

Take it easy LLL!
