Not what I hoped for.
I believe I'm supposed to review this.
I will make a VERY long post about this. Even though it will be constructive, you may not be able to take the critism. Anyways... (*Glad, Evil Laugh*)
Graphics: Not very impressive. The fonts had almost the same color as the background. (Think grey, white, light-blue... Not very good huh?) It's still ok. The background is linked metal. Hmmm... Look at the pattern. Why would anyone make a pattern like that? I don't think it's cool, it looks like a kid made it and thought it was cool. But it would never be worth building such a metal door or wall. So the background picture looks, as in modern tounge; "Gay". The play button need to be fixed too. The triangel which you're supposed to press does not sit in the middle of the circle.
Style: Not impressive at all. I would like to see someone who knows what he/she talks about to do something like this. And your guidelines are incorrect. YOU are supposed as a reviewer to choose whatever you want. According to how I review movies for example:
0 = Bad, none existens.
1 = It's not the best, but atleast it's something. In Interactivity I give 1 point for each function. A pre-loader does often automaticly give you 2 points.
And I won't talk about what the rest of the points mean though it's different all the time.
You also said that you would respons to all the reviews. That is one simple step for a reviewer. A reviewer do also answer to all the reviews they get. So you would encourage authors to respond to their reviews.
Sound: The music got two beats which crossed eachother with a variety. As the author you're responsible for picking out the best you can find (That's why I pointed out the background).
Violence: Not existing. If not the violations of that every reviewer put up their own rules for how many points means what. See it as 0 = Bad and then 1 is good but for each number it rais it's better.
Interactivity: Put a invicible button behind the graphic (The text) instead of making the text into the button itself. And the replay button did't take you to the instructions. Not good.
Humor: I think it's funny that you as an almost unknowing person gets into a subject as if you could give advices. (I got to say that I usually ain't this mean, but if this is supposed to be a guide (Which I saw you say in a update, claiming for not getting the front-page) it got to be flawless.
Overall: I could put 0:s on everything and then 10 at Overall 'cos there is something I think you missed which ain't in the other guidelines. You said something about that but then in the test, you didn't give ful points for those who used that as an answer. The "wrong" answers didn't make sence in the sentance either which is bad.
Anyway, you'll get 5 for your effort and so on. Afterall you tryed, even though I would only recommend this as a basic guideline. Any big reviewer would have their own opinion about this.
Anyway, thank you for submitting on Newgrounds!
