Having judged "The Say It Ain't So" Contest, I reviewed 3 games on the list here. Seeing that "Reviews written before this contest started are still eligible" I figure I might as well just us the old reviews instead of writing new ones. I'm not sure I'd say anything different this time that I didn't before anyways. But, we'll see I guess.
I can't make reviews for 2 of the games on Slimesalad, because they aren't on Slimesalad. So, instead of linking to them in the old thread, I'll just re post them all here.
Fenrir-Lunaris's "RAEP Dungeon"
As with all of Fenrir's games, the graphics in this game were top notch. Some of the most refined graphics in the whole contest were in this game. ( This includes the ripped graphic in Sephy's entry ) Graphics are very important when you're making the kind of game that this contest was calling for, but they aren't everything.
The fact that this game was so incomplete is what landed it in 3rd place. As disturbing as some of the enemies and overall plot might have been, I still would have liked to see more. There's an overabundance of unfinished games in the OHR community and I don't plan to reward someone for adding another.
The gameplay was very basic in this game. Which isn't terrible, but after seeing what the other games in the contest had to offer, I found myself bored with this title. The ripped music wasn't doing this game any favors either.
I regret voting this to 3rd place. I should have made it tied for first, but I wanted to play up Nathan Karr's game a bit because it was the best game he's ever made. This game is pretty darn good, but I don't suggest playing it.
Nathan Karr's "NO EAT"
Before I even started playing this game I expected a strange experience, and this game didn't disappoint. No Eat is perhaps the best game ever made by the developer Nathan Karr. The cutscenes look like something straight form his comic series and the gameplay actually kept me entertained.
This point in the game were you choose which weapon you get really sets this game apart from Raep Dungeon in my eyes. It adds a layer of re playability to the game that actually had me coming back for more. ( I needed to know what was in those chests )
The Graphics in this game were above passable. This was some of Nate's best work. The mouth part, that I posted a screen shot of, really surprised me.
The sound effects were great, though the game could have used a bit more sound. Overall I think the sound in this game was pretty good.
I did have a bit of a problem with the battle backdrops in this game. The final boss was kind of gross looking, but mostly it was the fact that they were all most likely ripped. If you're going to go through the trouble of doing all the other graphics you really should make them all and not just rip 1 or 2. It calls into question the origins of all the other graphics in your game when you do that.
Overall, the game was amazing. I would have liked to see a bit more going on in it though. 1 or 2 more choices like the weapon one would have been fantastic.
Ripped graphics?! For Shame Nathan! For shame....
