I got all excited thinking there was some sort of Newgrounds Nintendo DS port or something, but there was just this.
My disappointment started with the description, "Nintendo DS was SOOO last year."
Your artwork was pretty poor. The DS itself was just a bunch of simple shapes drawn by the line tool, and colored with the gradient filler. I could draw a ds like that in 5 minutes. On top of the simple design, you didn't draw the L and R buttons...pretty heavy flaw there.
And then there was that annoying 13 year old voice "Help! I'm in the microphone!" I'm guessing you range anywhere from 11-15 years of age, and your favorite tv show is either Naruto or Ben 10. You would have earned SOME style points should you have used a simple robotic voice (fruity loops voice, msagent, microsoft sam, etc. etc.)
The icon you used for the submission is terrible. It's an image scaled down to the point where you don't know what the hell you're looking at. Even if it wasn't scaled, it probably would have still been pretty bad.
Gameplay was a bunch of buttons that set off sounds and switched to different frames in the timeline. Ohhhh boyyyy.
Nothing special. I could make this EXACT game in about 15 minutes. I may make that my next video..
No Stars and a 0 vote for you, kiddo!
Yeah, make it ur next vid. If you look at my news post you'll see this was a joke, and i'm doing an actual port of the DS and calling it NewgrounDS Lite. I don't have photoshop on this computer or fireworks, just paint so i can't make a decent icon.
Um, frontpage. Now.
This was great!
The graphics were excellent, the gameplay was fun and challenging!
I would have loved to hear some more music, but this is fantastic.
White screens that go on forever are fun, so why not?
I really don't understand how the other reviews played anything..
The game shows up as a white screen when it can't connect to the server. My webhost had suspended my account and I had to move to a new webhost to run the custom levels/accounts etc. Everything should be fine now.
I liked the idea of caring for a plant as a game. The color scheme you chose really fitted the game, and made it really relaxing. The blooming tree on the menu screen was beautiful! Definitely throw more of those in there!
One thing that bothered me right away was the cactus plant...I mean, it's Zen right? Why would he be caring for a cactus? When I think of Zen, I think of China, monks, ancient Asian plants, etc. I don't picture a cactus...
As everyone said below, there was no combos...Did you test the game out before you posted it?
Lesson learned, I suppose! :)
Good luck on your next try!
Thankyou for the feedback, I uploaded the working version a while ago, and its working for me, I'll look into the problem further.
I figured a cactus would be easy to look after, so it would be appropriate for a first level. Maybe next time I'll throw some bonsai trees in there.
Thanks for the review!
The graphics for this were really nice!
I had headphones on, and when one of the balloons popped, it scare the SHI...ponies out of me.
Great gameplay! Get this on the frontpage.
I really don't know what people see in this game..
There really is no point to the game other than sawing through things. There aren't any enemies. The Skullkid is way too slow, so it bogs down gameplay with boredom. Ok graphics, I guess, but other than that, this is just a bad flash game.
No, it's not one of the greatest games in portal history. No, it's not fun.
No, it shouldn't be considered "Flash Portal History"
Aw such a meanie
