I haven't written a review on this site since three years ago, so here goes!
I really liked the game's presentation. The menus may look pretty basic and a bit dull, but at least they do the job. Although the presentation does get better once you get into the game. Everything looks very highly detailed, even for it being a simple 2D game with 3D pre-rendered graphics.
The gameplay is pretty self-explanatory, you just guide the little smiley-dude through each level and collect all the coins before proceeding to the next one while avoiding all sorts of hazards, and the further you progress, the harder the levels get. I'd say the difficulty balance was well thought out for each level, although some levels did give me some trouble. The final level in particular, I found the spikes rather annoying to deal with since there seems to be hit collisions with the sprite box itself. My guess is that the "Use fine detection" option in Fusion was disabled for these. Just wanted to point that out, but overall, a pretty solid and engaging playthrough... even if it almost made me pull my hair out towards the end. xD No joke, I legit rage quitted near the end... cuz I suck at games. lol
Now the graphics I absolutely loved. The pre-rendered sprites are all well made, and they give me that vibe of old Flash games from the 2000s. Sure, some of the sprites are just basic spheres, but at the very least they still look charming. The only downside is that it looks a bit pixelated in my opinion, and it's all due to the Perspective object that was used in the game. It would've looked much better if anti-aliasing was enabled on the object itself via the properties, but eh... it's just a nitpick. Other than that, great-looking game!
The music and sounds were all well made and well implemented. The music is bumping and catchy, and makes you want to keep on going. And I found no sound effect to be rather annoying in the game. I got nothing to complain about the sound department.
The game is only 30 levels, and you can play any level you want once you've unlocked them by playing through them all in order, and it does offer some replay value. The game isn't very long, but it will keep you busy since the later levels get progressively harder. And trust me, you'll spend quite some time with some of those levels cuz hoooo boy, you have no idea what I had to deal with.
Overall, I really liked this game. If you're a fan of old school Flash games, more specifically The World's Hardest Game, then you'll definitely get a kick out of this game and maybe feel a nostalgic towards those old classic browser games we all played when we were younger. I know this isn't a Flash game, but it certainly gave me that vibe, accompanied with the music choices. For a first game, it's really well made! I look forward in seeing what else you'll make in the future. Keep it up! phew... I still got it. :P
