Looks interesting, and the art seems solid but the soundtrack seems weirdly out of tone with the pace of gameplay? With that music I would be expecting a frantic shooter.

Thanks for reply.

I also think this. The game always used the intro music that is more meditative.

But then I read an article by Harm-Jan Wiechers in Gamasutra that music is able of influence on the perception of difficulty:

http://gamasutra.com/blogs/HarmJanWiechers/20160122/264144/The_influence_of_music_on_the_perception_of_difficulty.php

So I think that with this song the evaluation of the game can improve.

The game gets more frantic later. This start only introduces the puzzle logic. Think that with 6 or 9 screens to rearrange and other mechanical: blocks that break, lifts, enemies, bombs, etc. may become more challenging.  But I did not get far without evaluating the reception of the game.

How do you deal with haters? I test a mirror:

Quote
The game is kinda subpar. Dying is handled badly. Ending the level is handled badly. Tutorial is handled badly. Another game already did what you're trying to sell as your game concept, except they didn't make it garbage.
Aside from that, I don't know what to say. Try to make your game original or something, dude.

Your comment is also well below average. Try to say something more original in next time, dude.


But they advised me not to do this:

I'd suggest ignoring posts like that.  You won't change their mind and you'll just make yourself look bad.

Then I deleted. Really will only irritate him.

Haters come with the territory. I've made a lot of games and my advice would be to take each of them of at least some value. Somebody opened up reply, typed some words, and hit the post button. They spent a tiny itty little bit of their lives responding to you in some way.

Strip apart any negative comments and see if there is any value, truth or incite to them. If there is act on it, if there isn't forget it and move on. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, a lot of people have incorrect opinions.

True. This type of response may make more effect:

Turnland was an study that I decided expand. To move forward with the development I need:

- Create a behavior, system or extension for automate teleports between scenes.
- Create a behavior, system or extension for automate  teleports stones.

Because it is being increasingly time consuming and confuse to create the stages one by one.

This means redoing the game from scratch.

The metrics that I have:

Kongregate
Plays: 358
Rating: 3.16
Time: 7 days

Newgrounds
Plays: 4,597
Rating: 3.0
Time: 9 days

I do not know if with more stages the game would have a better rating.
I know that the bad rating is mainly due to the bugs of first versions.

Anyway, I think these data are sufficient to establish that this is not a game much sought by players.

Another problem is that it is not a game that is played more than once.
What, for a web game, means fewer visits.

Perhaps the option to players create your own puzzle for others solve can boost the number of plays. And the effort to it, can bring more results than insert enemies, boss and more scenes.

I think the solution is this, or try another game.

Does anyone have an idea?
