Re-write of The Landing for Windows

Postby Grumpydlw » Tue May 04, 2010 8:28 pm

I have re-written the 360 panoramic game I wrote a few years ago.
The new full game is only 200 meg as opposed to the 800 meg it was originally. I have incorporated many learned features making it a (hopefully) more enjoyable experience.
It can be found at
http://www.home.comcast.net/~the.landing
I am looking for comments both good and helpful.
Thank you to everyone

Edit: I've added both a walkthrough and Hints to the site by going to the Help Menu.

Thank you Enjoy

I'm happy to see you published your game Grumpydlw :)

I had the opportunity to beta test this game, and I think it's an enjoyable point and click game. :)

I have already given a feedback to Grumpydlw after beta testing, but I'd like to post my feedback also here, without revealing too much about the specific game contents to future players:

I enjoyed riding the vehicle at the beginning, and I think that the number of locations on the map is just right, so that the driving part doesn't get boring for the player.
I thought that finding items and using them was very logical.
I got often lost a bit in the caves, and was walking around in circles trying to find new locations. This part got a bit too repetitive for me after a while.
The river puzzle, bridge puzzle and machine puzzle were really good, very nice ideas, and I enjoyed them a lot :D They had a Myst-like feeling.
As for the slider puzzle, I think it was a wise decision to let it skip, because I would guess that a part of the players would stop there. I'm not fond of slider puzzles myself, and after about 10 minutes of trying to solve it, I decided to skip it - it was just too many tiles for me to sort out. Nevertheless there are certainly players who like to solve slider puzzles.
The voice-over was nice, and also the artwork is well done.

Congrats on a well done game! :D

This was a great game, I really enjoyed it. It was a persuasive little space adventure. :) The puzzles are easy but interesting.

I just wrote an article about your game in my german 1st person-Adventure-Blog:

FireOrange,
I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
I don't read German (I have enough trouble with English)
However the Blog is much appreciated.
Thank you for the kind words.

A very positive review also stating that currently The Landing is his favorite among the games created with Adventure Maker. :)

Guess we others need to work now pretty hard :lol: :wink:

Oh I know FireOrange, no worries ;)
I just wanted to let Grumpydlw know how positive the review was :)
And the last part of my post was just a bit of teasing (my weird humor ;)) - I have no problems with your review at all, and my feedback on this game was similar to yours. :D
