Hm... I'm afraid I cannot think of much to say. The gameplay is safely within known territory, the graphics are nothing special, the sound is adequate, the controls are self explanitory... The game isn't really shining but it's not complete muck that you wipe your shoes off. It's playable and by all means enjoyable, but not really something you'll remeber forever. It's not bad or exceptionally good. I'll give it a 6/10.

I think that maybe your holding him to an unrealistic standard. I mean, it's a couple of guys making a game with no money. What is it that you want, exactly?

I'm just going to ask whether that's supposed to be ironic or not before I respond.

3rd place of today on highscores. Whoo!

It's a great game, could have been better if the yellow star did more than blink.

I expected more than this. I want games that offer new ideas or much funner ways to enjoy older ideas.

How much time have you spent on this game, and what did you make it with? That might affect my rating of it.

Are you genuinely being a dick, or are you playing devil's advocate or something?

I think maybe he's just kind of a twat. Fuck off with your I expected more bullshit. The game is fun and it's free.

It took me a day to program and get the graphics right for the game. I plan on making something a bit more thought provoking for my next project, but I lack an artist and have no artistic skill myself. Wish me luck.
edit: Made it with Adobe Flash CS4, scripted in as3

... This is awkward... I am being completely truthful, and maybe I am being a bit harsh and not giving this game enough of a chance, but I am speaking my mind about this game. If you make something, and you want to improve, you need harsh and honest critisism. I don't mean to discourage Venks.

But with this new information, this game is no longer below my supposedly high standard, but is now above it.

This is truly my standard of free online games. I have played my fair share, and there are a lot of better games out there, many made for free by penniless guys. Of course, Berathen Star is a lot more playable and enjoyable than many other games.

I don't really like the gameplay style of this game anyway.

Wish you luck on your next project.

Bullshit. Whoever told you that doesn't know what the fuck they are talking about.

Harsh? Maybe not. Honest? I think so. But honest and harsh go hand in hand a large portion of the time.

Anyone who creates anything is their own worst critic. He not only doesn't need your critique, he didn't even ask for it.

I don't think that is true. That is dependant on the sort of person he is. And saying that he doesn't need my critique is like me saying that you don't need to critique my critique. I didn't ask for your opinion on my critique either, yet here we are.

Actually, no. It isn't the same thing. Telling you to shut the fuck because you're being a stupid cunt isn't the same as offering stupid cuntery unsolicited.

Must I remind you that this is the internet? Just because you can use your fancy Wicca powers to super smack me from across oceans doesn't mean that normal people can.
