I don't bellieve this is very accurate...
...since most people are getting results over 130 as an average. My result was pretty accurate (considering the average of like 13 other tests I've taken) but more thorough tests are needed to get an accurate result. I suggest you encourage people to perform real tests like MENSA's in the description of this submission :) Otherwise I think this is a really neat little program, fit as an app for an iPhone or similar.
How you think the music was the good part of this game... It's ridiculous and way to high volume... I mean c'mon.. this is just sh*t
an excellent game for testing your simultaneous capacity. easy as that ^^
Nice idea for a game
But could have been performed a bit better. The story and the game itself were really unrelated, which made it hard to appreciate any of them fully. Try to focus the point of the game a bit more. Also the text was really distracting when trying to pull off a precis jump :/ And one thing to fix if you feel like it - the game can be completed by holding the left mouse button while dragging the mouse to the far right of the screen. You will fly by all of the checkpoints with an exception of maybe one or two checkpoints. Other than that, I must say it's a really nice sidescroller. It reminds me of Megaman somehow.
Thanks for the review.
You know, I actually implemented a scrolling background that featured images from the story. So you could both see and read what was going on.
I decided against using it in favor of the black background because I didn't want to distract the player with other peoples interpretation of the story.
You're probably right about it being a bit difficult to time jumps, that's on me. I conducted no testing whatsoever on this "game" so issues like that are bound to pop up :)
This probably shouldn't be on Newgrounds, but refurbish it a bit and it'd make a perfect little tool for making toddlers understand the basics of controlling a computer. Perfect for kids, even though I think they'd prefer drawing on paper... It's a nice toddler game, but on Newgrounds? Sorry, this ain't the right place :/
Simple and clean
You made a completely decent upgrade-game. I like it, even though I think this would probably be more popular amongst kids in the age from 7-12 or something. You feel little accomplishment with each upgrade. You can only collect coins and use jumping platforms on the way down... which kinda kills the purpose of having the platforms in the first place. Other than that, it's a neat little game. Simple to understand and simple to play. I also like the slight innovation of controls. Drag n Drop added some difficulty but it didn't make the game feel restrained by it's controls... it worked out somehow. Nice job, mate :)
A perfectly average game
averagely fun, averagely addicting and averagely difficult. It's a nice arcade-game all in all, but it feels a bit slow and dense somehow, perhaps you should try adding some faster progress? It took me a couple of solid minutes before all of the surface was scratched off, and after all - the point of the game is do go as deep as possible. Right now it just feels survival-ish since there's no real depth to go to ^^;
Awesome game ^^
Addicting and I guess that's the point of these games ^^ quite original concept, try refining sound and graphics even though the retro flixel style was very awesome ^^ Could use some sort of level up system ;P
But the sound effects and the nostalgia is just purely awesome :D
