The Spiral Of Eternity
Rawr. Well yeah, hello. It is I, the great mat7772, bringing you yet another review for you to bore your way through. Donít you just love those reviews, where you just go: *Quick scan from introductionÖ OKAY NOW LETS LOOK AT THE RATINGS! Oh look this game got a -1 it is bad*? Cause I love them. Anyway, tenth review, time to party! And for my tenth review I am reviewing Final Spiral by lordfail. Time to party again! :D
Pre Ė Thoughts:
Who is lordfail? Lordfail is lordís alt who likes to make fun mini games. I luv ur minigamez lordfail. Oh, sorry, that was me dosing off, happens a lot. :/ Anyway, nearly all games from lordfail seem to have puzzles, traps, lots of action, and sometimes are addictive. So I am basically expecting what I just said then, and no I am not doing a recap of it. Moving onÖ
Looks average :(, no pretty art :(, no originality :(, (The Black Whole from maxliam has nothing in common with this thumbnailÖ) A good thing though is that there looks like thereís going to be action from the turrets placed, but apart from that no good things :(. OH WAIT DA BLUE BACKGROUND IZ PWETTY! :O Okay, so my hopes of a good game have dropped down through the ground, which explains why there is a massive hole in the ground. But will I change my mind when playing this gameÖ Eh, we shall find out!
As soon as I jump in, a turret starts shooting, and I react with a swift move like a ninja. Take dat u meany tuwwet. After a while of playing, the game got very repetitive, meaning it got boring to me, meaning the scores are going to have to be lowered :(. After awhile of fighting turrets, new enemies, like heavy cruisers and magnets, were introduced, and so were one puzzle. Personally, I think it was a great effort to incorporate a puzzle or two in this game, as it would be hard by the limited area lord gave. ( 1 to lord)
There was one puzzle in Final Spiral, and I can surely understand why. Itís not a type of game where you can easily add a puzzle, as it was limited by the playfield. Though there was only one, and that puzzle was actually creative, surprisingly. I have not seen that in any other game, so another 1 to lord. Also, no traps, but there is part of a puzzle where many members may think it is a trap. :O (Sneaky lilí lord.)
The enemies were placed very averagely. One enemy at every corner, I bet that was lordís motto in this game, as it seems like that. Sadly though, his motto did not work. It just seemed to often that I was firing my laser at enemies, constantly pushing that ďxĒ button in. So yeah, I wouldíve liked to see enemies placed as not as often as they were. Also, the variety of enemies didnít really pick up until I got mid-way through the game, which is fairly disappointing to all the people and myself. Now let me go sob in the corner from disappointment. Walks away
Health and power-ups were placed when I needed themÖ OR SO I THOUGHT! DUN DUN DUN! Okay, so I do admit that I started low on health, but when I progressed even further into the game, I HAD ďALOTĒ OF HEALTH! Oops, me and my temper, ugh. Anyway, that isnít the best thing for a game, to have low health and then to be bombarded with mega healthís, which is what I thought of that part. I also wouldíve finished the game, however, the three spiders knocked me out, with my nitro on. (Oh yeah, there was nitro at the end to help you fight three spiders keys at once.)
Scenery! Well, there wasnít really any scenery, apart from trees, which is unusual from lord. Could lord be hacked? MAYBE! OMG SUPER MOD TO THE RESCUE! Okay, Iíll investigate that after the review. Anyway, from lordís past games, he has included some fantastic scenery to help us get attracted to the game. But lord didnít do that this time, which was unfortunate. So lord, promise me that you will include scenery next time? Kthx
Creativity? Please refer to the Black Hole By maxliam for further information. So yeah, Final Spiral is like that game, a spiral of Eternity. But the design was only like that! *GASP* So yeah, it wasnít all unoriginal. The gameplay was much different to many spiral of eternity games. It had a puzzle, and a variety of enemies, unlike others. So not all bad with creativity, but not all great either, just good. Anyway, moving on to Proís and Conís now.
Puzzle/s. Yeah I know, there was only one puzzle, but be quiet, because it would be hard to incorporate puzzles to a game like this.
Creativity. Yeah, I also know that the design wasnít creative, but would you please BE QUIET! Thanks. The way that lord established this game (Or made) was creative, which is good. 1
Enemy variety. OKAY BE QUIET I KNOW I SAID THERE WASNíT MUCH ENEMY VARIETY UNTILL THE MIDDLE, BUT AT LEAST THERE WAS VARIETY!
Placement. Placement was extreme poor, yep and I mean everything. I was bombarded with health, enemies were placed either too often or too little, and block placement I canít say one single thing about.
Scenery. Now, lord is usually a scenery man, BUT WHERE DID ALL THE SCENERY GO!? Well, *glances at cookie monster* thatís where it went. Also, the game did bore me a bit without the scenery, so yeah.
Design. The design of the game was unoriginal. *Coughblackholebymaxliamcough* Oh no, I got a cold. There goes my fun for the weekend.
Action: 2.5/5. There was action at the starts, with turrets, turrets, oh, and I missed something, ah, thatís it, turrets. Then when the action did pick up from turrets, it got to the point where there was LONG gaps of nothing.
Difficulty: 2.5/5. Again, not so difficult, apart from the start with TURRET- Never mind, you get the picture, donít you? Well, one thing is you may not see my name on the scoreboard, because each time when I was coming to the final spider key/s, I glitched out of the map.
Puzzles and traps. 2.5/5. Again, there wasnít many puzzle/s, but because of the way this was set out I have to praise lord for at least putting one in. Same with the traps.
Placement. 2/5. Placement was definitely not Final Spiralís great point, in-fact it was one of the worst. With TURRETS placed carelessly, same with the power-ups. Everything else was placed a little above average or mainly average.
Creativity. 2/5. The design wasnít creative, and youíd all know why, cough- Actually never mind. But the things lord include were creative, sorry, SOME things.
Overall I give Spiral of Eternity, um, I mean Final Spiral a 2.3/5. This game was pretty week, and Iíd definitely not place this again. The reason why was because of TURRETS TURRETS LA LA LA and placement. Though Iíd still say you should try it out to see if you agree with me or not.
Feature worthy? Ask the turrets. But seriously, no. The game had some serious bore in it and placement was poor. Hey look, that sentence rhymes, lol.
