Personal Trip to the Moon Personal Trip to the Moon

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I liked this game. I enjoyed the graphics, and I liked the mix of pixels and texture, though at times the graphics made my eyes hurt. The slow movement was a major pain though. I really enjoyed the music as well!
I am transgender myself, so, personally, I believe I got the symbolism you were going for. Sometimes transitioning seems like its as difficult and distant as traveling to the moon. Sometimes you feel isolated and lost. Even when you have gathered the things you need to finally be who you are, the people you once thought to be your friends have left you behind. You still feel so isolated because they don't seem to understand. But at least you finally are yourself.
Thats what I got out of it anyway. I usually am not one to throw around "you just don't get it" but I feel that maybe a lot of the negative comments on the story are actually because they don't understand what you're trying to say. I'm not sure why some are saying this is a parody of dys4ia, as its just dealing with similar subject matter.

This game actually came out a while before sequester, if I remember correctly, on the Adult Swim website. Since playing it there I've come to love these sorts of puzzles. Whoever first thought up the physics/premise for such puzzles is a wonderful person! The graphics are also pretty awesome in this. If you have already played Sequester and enjoyed it, you'll most likely enjoy this one. Its a more colourful, funny version.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

great game!

This game is really wonderful! It has just enough challenge to make it enjoyable but not frustrating, and the premise is really quite good.
The graphics are EXCELLENT. The design for the environments and the character are simplistic and appealing, and the animation is very well done. It's a cute, funny, and entertaining game. I really enjoy it, and recommend it to people who are fans of Physics puzzle games.

Vector Stunt Vector Stunt

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

deja vu?

This is definitely a very nicely polished game, but it's pretty much a direct rip off of audio surf.. I do like having a flash version of audiosurf to play, as the original version ran really horrible on my computer.

I'll give it a five because I'm not sure if the intention was to make audiosurf: the flash game, and it IS a really nicely done game, and im sure a lot of work has been put in it, Its just.. utterly unoriginal.



Rizzoli and Isles - The M Rizzoli and Isles - The M

great game as always

I've come to feel extremely excited whenever I see PastelGames has uploaded something, and this game doesn't disappoint! It has beautiful art as always, and the game play was great. It wasn't too difficult, wasn't too easy. I've only noticed one bug, and that is at the point where you are in the office, where it will generally tell you that there is still information to find and you can't leave yet, it did not give me that note at all and I was wandering around and not sure what exactly I was missing, or where the missing piece was!
This game is amazing and PastelGames remains as one of my favourite point n' click creators.

Grey Story Grey Story

Rated 3 / 5 stars

great graphics, not so great story

This game has some beautiful graphics, and I really enjoyed watching the colours return to the game's world. The game play was a bit tedious, mainly because the figure moved very slow. May be an issue with my own computer though. The music is also very excellent, congrats you shadow6nothing9.
The story however seems to just be another "I was so nice to her, why didn't she ask me out!" sort of deal. even as a "nice guy" who gave his all for someone only for her not to return the feeling, I find those stories to wrongfully villianize the person who is being persued. I see that happening again with this game. A person cannot help who they love, they can't help that you are not the one they want, and you cant expect them to read your mind when you bring them gifts and dont tell them what your intentions are. There may be more to this story than that, but this is what I'm getting.
Condensed version:
Lovely Graphics, lovely music, lovely atmosphere
Slow, tedious gameplay, possibly my computer's fault.
Assumed story is just another "Nice Guy can't get a clue,blames girl" deal.

Papa's Taco Mia! Papa's Taco Mia!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

great!

I loved the other games in this series a lot, so I was happy to see you come out with a new one. While the game has a similar pretense to the others, the mechanics are different, challenges are different, and it is definitely not just a recycling of an older game. I second some other people's request for an area to put already cooked meat like in burgeria, but thats it really. I really enjoy that the more stars you get for certain customers, the faster they will tell you their order. It's nice when a game rewards you for your efforts haha. The closer customers are a good challenge, and the raises and paychecks to assist leveling is also nice. I really cant find any flaws in this game, it's a very fun little time waster that I enjoy greatly. My only issue is I'm not too big of a fan on the way the characters in it are drawn, but thats a personal taste issue.

Devotion Devotion

Rated 5 / 5 stars

beautiful!

I'm not sure if you want to consider this an art game, but to me it's very fitting of the basic of what an art game is. It's beautiful, and even if the story is so minimal, you still think about it a lot, even after you finish playing. The level of interaction is perfect, just enough to keep you engaged, but not too difficult or frustrating. This is a wonderful, wonderful attempt at a first game, and I hope you keep making more!


HappyBlack responds:

Thank you very much!
I think it is art game, but it didn't mean to be ;3


Over The Border Over The Border

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

good

This is a really really fun launcher game! The graphics are excellent the upgrades are actually really useful. I will not comment on the offensiveness of this. I'm white and I was born here, I don't know what being mexican is like and I never will. I dont have the room to speak. I do however know from helping my girlfriend get citizenship here, that the official immigration process is so horribly expensive, time consuming, and stressful. most of the time you shell out hundreds of dollars and don't even have the gaurentee that you will be accepted to be considered for citizenship or visas. I can imagine when the reason you are coming to america is for better job oppurtunities and quality of life, that official immigration is close to impossible. Offensive or not, this game is a good one.

20 Seconds to DIE 20 Seconds to DIE

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing animation!

The animations are really amazing, and the deaths are actually very creative. These people did good work. the music is very fitting. Really my only complaint is I really don't know why you're trying to pass it off as a game, when there is absolutely nothing game-like about it.
