Gameplay

YES! This is a great example of an adrenaline packed shooter. It almost executes this one-minute map quite well, but it obviously has its flaws. Let me talk about the bad before the good.


First off, I was glitched 1/3 of the time while playing this map and was forced to restart. I randomly would get jammed into walls, unable to move, and forced to die because of it. Really bothersome considering the difficulty of the game. Luckily, since it was a short game, I was able to trudge through it.


That aside, this game is a bit of an illusion. After entering the teleporter into the blacked area, I was forced to stop my manic running around to escape enemies to actually hide and destroy them with, you guessed it, Geurrilla Warfare. Everytime I entered this area, I was too low on health to allow myself to run past the inevitable traps, so I was forced to take my time and destroy enemies. This is probably the biggest con on this game, since it just halts all gameplay till the very end - very anti-climatic ending.


However, excluding the ending, the game was loads of fun. I was enthralled playing it over again a few times (though I was getting very frustrated by the final area and the glitches, I died too much for this game) and thus the main section of the game was executed nicely. Bravo to you!


Now for some crunchy numbers.


Game Structure

Enemy Placement: 7/10 - the enemies at the end were bad, but the beginning definitely highlighted over that.

Map: 6.5/10 - Same as enemy placement, the ending bleeped, but the beginning was to good to ignore. Also glitches took away from the score.

Aesthetics: 4/10 - It actually doesn't look too bad, but still nothing spectacular.


Gameplay

Difficulty: 7.5/10 - once you understand the trick, you can beat it, but I don't feel as though I needed to die so much to understand it. It was so close to being that prime difficulty, but the ending just threw it out of whack.

Flow: 6/10 - I was left hanging at the ending, and that left a bad impression of the game.


Etc

Replayability: 5/10 - I could play this game again, though I probably won't.

Impact: 3.5/10 - Nothing significant in this game really makes it astounding and innovative, but its decently executed.


OVERALL SCORE

Fun: 6.5/10


Definitely worth your time to play, but the glitches, difficulty, and flow of the gamplay halt it from being an 8 or 8.5. This game did have that potential, but those factors above took away from the glamour of the game. Other than that, great job! A notable work, but still not completely polished.
