I've made a new, super simple one button browser game called electrobe
.play it here
The main questions I have for you, my esteemed peers, are;
- is it obvious how to play?
- is it fun?
- do you have any other comments?
After maybe 2 seconds it was obvious how to play. Now that I think, one might mistakenly believe that the objective is to collect the circles, not avoid them. Perhaps making them more dangerous looking could help.
It was (very) fun for a few minutes, but even though the challenge level was constantly increasing, I got bored quite fast. I played only 1 round, got 550 or so points. Maybe the problem was that a big part of each cycle was exactly the same as during the previous cycle.
The flickering was unpleasant, even though otherwise I liked the minimalistic style. Also, I don't like java in web games. Third, a high score cookie or something like that would probably be a good idea. What I mean is that if a player closes the browser and comes back later, the previous high score is still there. This is standard in all the flash games in the world, and many people will expect this.
