Great job so far!
The art work looks really good and it plays okay. Except for that the elevators are a bit messy to control and in general there is no instructions for them.
Also it looks a bit wierd that the crates do not actually catch fire and just blacken out and crumble.
Sound is just great as it is...
This is sad.
Your so called "collision detection" is worthless. Your so called "true gravity and friction" tutorial is physically wrong. I don't even want to comment on every aspect of the AS section in that tutorial. Sorry but you just contribute to producing confused as beginners that write horrible code.
Lets just put it this way, its a nice effort and the animations are okay. Things that bothered me though:
- The text to explain things is mostly hard to read (way too small).
- The actionscript is absolutelly horible!
Generally you should never use more then 1 onEnterFrame event per movieclip. And what you did is an absolute mess. You used an onEnterFrame event for every single line of code! What the hell?? That would slow down any bigger game as hell...
Well next time it might be better to actually learn actionscript before making tutorials about it. Rather stick to animation tutorials for now.
Not so good...
I think its retarted manually importing a sprite sheet and then manually breaking it apart and making movieclip symbol sprites this way. Why? Because:
a) You can just import the whole sprite sheet via code at run time from the folder that your game s in, this way you can always change the sprite graphics without having to recompile to whole fla.
b) If you have the sprite sheet imported and cached in a bitmap data object you can copypixel any sprite from it into a dynamically created movieclip and animate it automatically.
c) That all only takes a few lines of code and can be done in 5 minutes compared to the hours you waste if you do it your way.
You should be ashamed of those poor and really unrealistic "physics" if i may even call them that. The driving behaviour is very far from a car more like a thruster on ice. And its funny seeing that you couldnt do better than this looking back to your big speech forum posts.
The rest is nice...
I liked it exept for that the sounds you made were a bit cheap and the graphics could use some shading... but you did a real good job!
yeah, I was thinking maybe the sounds should have been proper sounds, not voice acted. I'll keep that in mind for the next part.
Thanks for the good review!
Okay well its not bad but totally overrated, the score of this game is just another proof how dumb the blammers here are. A bunch of retarted kids that cant stand other people being better at flash and then they vote down. For a game that has probably the most sophisticated engine ect on newgrounds they vote a 2 and almost blam. But for games that are easy to do (like 1 hour) and are nothing special. Games that have 2 lines of code and some graphics... get rated a 4.. NEWGROUNDS stinks.
lol, i know what you mean about the blammers :p
Sorry, learn first to understand code yourself before you go explaining wrong stuff to noobs! You write stuff in that tutorial which is completely wrong and means you dont understand it yourself. So please first learn how to program and then go making tutorials. Or stick to drawing tutorials.
Also the stuff you covered in that tut is the stuff that every noob writes in his tutorial when he writes a tut. Try writing about something new that is not there already. Because to learn the stuff in your tutorial people are better of using google or flashkit instead of this.
Hey what i say is true and i am just being honest. Otherwise you did a good job on the layout. So if you learn about programming you will be able to make good tutorials i guess.
Dude i will smack your brains out with a sledgehammer if you don't finish this game! You have so little more to do to make a full polished game out of it, your almost there. It would be stupid restarting from scratch. You can always optimize it! Ask someone experienced (like me for example) for help with optimizing and sorting stuff out. But just get over your fear from finishing it and just do it!
Are you already working on it again now? I certainly hope so or you will get some bad ass spankin ;).
Its a cool game but the graphics could be a bit better. And you should fix the preloader, it stoped at 25% and i had to press play to get to the game since it was loaded but got stuck.
Preloader should work now
