Hi,

I am just interested in any feedback of this game I am making. It is still WIP



Videos: http://youtube.com/watch?v=5Mvqn3bYoS8 , http://youtube.com/watch?v=iEJDD2Ma3bg
(you are advised to see the videos otherwise you won't know what all you can do in game. Otherwise these videos are from much earlier version of game)

Play the latest WIP version here:
http://www.bravekidgames.com/alien_zze/
(the game is 1.5MB and doesn't have a preloader (it will be made downloadable at first) so you should wait for some time before it shows up)

If you have slow net connection you can also try older (much smaller) version without sound: http://www.itmmetelko.com/webdemos/rowzz/

Any feedback, especially critical is welcome.

Uh... I am searching for another name... I don't like "Rowzz"...

What's good: the graphics are quite nice!  Very clean... I like the alien character.  He's going to move eventually, right?

What could be improved: the gameplay seems very slow.  Also, dragging and dropping seems like it could get tiring very quickly.  For a casual game like this, I think it may be too much wristwork.

Other than that, just concentrate on making it rewarding to keep playing.  A lot of that is in the presentation.  Getting a big combo should feel extremely good!

Thanks Derek. The graphics are so clean because if I try to make them "filthy rich" it will all go wrong as I am not very graphically capable. The alien model is from DAZ3d.

First I was like "Whaaat?! Slow?!" But then I looked at the videos again and played 70 seconds at easy and I see why you say that. But the game is really not meant to be slow. I made 2 new videos of "clear the board", if you will look at them... please tell me if you still think it's slow.

- Quick and easy "clear the board" level:
 


- Harder "clear the board" level:
 



I am making "70 seconds" videos too and will post them in a while.

Thanks for your feedback!
