Incy Wincy Spider Like A Teddy Bear....
Hello this is Senbaki with another review and as I have been making poor effort with them this will be like my first which was my best so far, so I hope people like this one and enjoy!
So Youngcaliman, has had surprisingly all of his games featured and three games unpublished which no one on Sploder has ever done that. Which is very legend in my opinion, so he has had a total of 17 games and 14 featured. However, I am sure he is aiming for more features after all those in the past, which will make his Sploder career improve by a lot. Okay well also this game has been placed in the EGL which has been an amazing accomplishment for Cali, give a round of applause to him. I see the game Black Widow was based off of a spider which is very well known. Getting on to another subject he has been helping me with my reviews as I have been told they have terrible quality, which I could agree on. So I hope he appreciates this review and hope he enjoys it. Okay lets now get to the main review.
The thumbnail looked unbelievable! The length of the game is outstanding and I must say it must of taken a very long time. Thanks Cali for showing everyone what a spider's life is about! I never knew a spider really had a block head, Gothic suit and carries a sword around and it's very fascinating how you found it out! So as the game is absolute massive you can't really describe it very well but there is a lot of scenery used in the start of Black Widow which is pretty well used in a sense. From what I saw there wasn't much of a thumbnail like you see others with like a design of Mario and when you actually play the game it turns out it's very different, so the thumbnail trick probably could of been used if he knows how.
The game play was absolutely stunning, the game was lagging a bit for me, and the tutorial on YouTube really helped me out, Youngcaliman has obviously tried so hard to make this also this has achieved one of the greatest successes in the whole of Sploder, first a feature then a review and magnificently in the EGL, all of these is a great achievement and is certainly a thing I could never do. Mainly Black Widow involved a lot of puzzles and traps, some action but not many. Well this game had surprising length, one of the longest platformer ever to be made I guess. Now Black Widow has a lot of 'hateful' parts, some where you can't complete which you work on for about 5 minutes, yeah you know those parts, yep annoying right? Black Widow has been one of my favourite games ever and many would agree with me, well for starters the game is very fun, addicting and super smexy. Well I just can't stop playing this game, even though I lose after about 10 seconds I still find it addictive. Getting on to an evenly subject this game has had four completer's and the time people have made it in was astonishing. Okay so now lets get onto another paragraph....
So now we are on to the scenery which Black Widow has involved a lot on and there is scenery all over the place, there's some spiders in one corner then you see some bones and then well you get the point, the game involved a lot of the plain scenery, which what I meant by that was the lighting effect was dark so therefore you cannot actually see the full game. Now Black Widow involved a lot of 'hidden' scenery, what I mean by that was as I said it was dark you couldn't see the scenery that well and you probably couldn't guess what it is, so it's a bit like a game in a game, guessing and figuring out a puzzle. Double fun! Most of the platforms used in this game has been the normal floor which some use, some other blocks were used but not many, which I can see this by the thumbnail if you look closely enough. The scenery filled a big whole in this particularly and it made a decent impression to Black Widow too. I would say that the scenery could improve by quite a lot unless it wasn't meant to be a game full of it.
Now starting the subject of hazard placement it was very good, it was all spaced out and there were hardly any parts you could get bored of. Yes the hazards made the game quite more exciting. However, many of the hazards were not the best but they seem difficult in my opinion. Well as I am not the best of gamers I struggled to actually see most of the hazards actually were. So Black Widow contained many vary hazards, which made the game seem a little more interesting then it would with the same hazard over and over again. Well the map is very long and kinda fitted in to that position. Also not to forget that the hazards were not the best choice and certainly not poor decisions. Nevertheless, the game was added to be one of the hardest games ever made on Sploder which makes the game very suspicious in my opinion.
Puzzles & Traps
Well for the first statement of this category I would like to notice that Black Widow involved many puzzles and traps, enjoyable and some easy. However, many of the puzzles used in Black Widow has been unnoticed in Sploder gaming. The game has lots of puzzles to enjoy, and these puzzles are top class. Normally you would get noobs spamming you're page as they can't get past the first part. Typical >.> . So moving on to the traps it actually amused me, for once I could have fun with the traps. So many of the traps were picking the right switch, in addition lots of traps were placed in the first section of Black Widow, also it is a matter of remembering, if you don't guess it right and you die you start again, if you forget about it then you are doomed... again. Youngcaliman has put so much effort into Black Widow's puzzles and traps, it has made the game enjoyable for all. Many of the traps are what I call 'fun' and I really hope you surely agree.
It was very hard but also a great challenge to defeat and accomplish.
You must think I love dying but you are wrong, this game puts you in a trance of playing this game, in other words... brainwashed.
Hazards & Placement:
Just absolutely stunning, the hazards were fair and the placement of them was very good.
Sorry Cali you must be heart broken, two four-stars. So it kinda lacked scenery but at the start it had great positioning.
Just got skill. Amazing skill, he is very clever to create them and include them in Black Widow, surely some of the best puzzles put into one game.
Ha! No way on Earth! Not feature worthy, EGL worthy! The game has great potential and has a varies of other games made by great game makers, it hardly lacked anything on this game. Believe it or not this is surely one of the best games ever, not just because lots of people like it, because of the puzzles and the game-play. I do not know why people would disagree. Amazing game.
