Default High Quality Alice Game - 03-04-2009, 09:05 AM

Please download our game and play all three levels. You will receive an error message when you try to advance from the second level to the third level. To advance to the third level from the start without an error message, press "T". Please give us your feedback and rate the game. Let us know what we can change and let us know good ideas for the name of the game.

Hey!
I enjoyed the game, and indeed, it is probably one of the better games created on Alice. It is obvious that a lot of effort had been put into the game, and a lot of coding had been done. Level 3 is especially enjoyable (though rather difficult to beat... How do you prevent someone from firing at you?).


However, I would discourage you from calling it "high quality". Just the fact that there is an error in the game contradicts the statement. Further, I believe the game can still be polished far more than it currently is.. Try looking at Madden's 'JetStix' world to see what a polished game looks like.

As for the name, it ties in with something else that bothered me. There seems to be no connection between the different levels; they all seem to be haphazardly thrown together, all of varying quality and experience. Thus, it is difficult to think of a name, unless you provide some background information on what you were thinking when you created this game.

Finally, I believe that for level 3, the game instructions were insufficient. Who was firing at you? And how could you prevent that?

Anyway, good job on this. Few people have managed to make levels in Alice. Keep it up, and try polishing this game up a bit more!

Default The title - 03-06-2009, 01:44 PM

The title that we gave to our game has nothing to do with it(the "High Quality" means nothing). It was just a temporary name until we find a good one.

Although you no doubt put a lot of effort into making this game, I wouldn't call it high quality. the second level of the game is overloaded with fireAnimations to the point that Alice is so laggy that the game becomes more of an interactive slideshow than anything. I had to use your skip to third level button (T) to get to the third level, in which I was confused, uninformed and, after a short while, lagging and dead.

My suggestions:

Cut down on the infinity loops and the fireAnims (they really take a toll on Alice's speed and should be used sparingly).

Revamp grenade throwing, maybe give it a power bar or some other way of indicating range.

Create a working storyline. Makes it more fun to play.

Add a dodge option in the plane level.

Add a better way to gauge where the tank's shots will land.

Default Use Alice 2.2 - 03-09-2009, 11:55 AM

This game should be run on Alice 2.2. That is what we made it on. Playing it in Alice 2.0 can cause it to be a lot more laggy. Alice 2.2 can be found at http://alice.org/index.php?page=downloads/alice2_2_info.

I HAVE Alice 2.2 and it was still REALLY laggy.

If you REALLY want to be specific about the download links, here is the source link. (Source link means that when you click on it, you will be prompted for download right away.)


Hello. I am hosting an Alice Contest, and was wondering if you would be interested in joining. If you feel this game is contest material (which I do), please enter it at this thread. Thank you!

Actually, the convention with download links to software that you don't own is to link to the download page. This allows the reader to see whatever the author intended.

You're *such* a mac person.
