Review of Reel Fruit Slots by Oyakiiv:
Overall Gameplay (2/14 pts)
- Player Experience (1/8 pts)
- Quality of Mechanics (1/6 pts)
Comments: That was certainly a unique experience, but I'm not sure if that translates to a good
There was clearly an effort to put together a unique type of game, which I really appreciate. But the result unfortunately falls flat. I was never really sure what I was betting on, and dodging the fruit seemed to be more or less luck-based (overcome the odds? Although I don't think that's what you were going for). The goal of the game also wasn't clear to me, nor how exactly I was progressing.
Theme Inclusion (4/7 pts)
Comments: I see the connection to overcoming the odds, but as I stated above I'm still not sure what I was betting on, or how I was in control of the outcome.
Overall Presentation (2.5/9 pts)
- Menus/Interfaces (1/3 pts)
- Quality of Graphics (0/3 pts)
- Quality of Audio (1.5/3 pts)
Comments: I'm glad that you put together a semi-visual 'how to play' screen. The graphics and fonts were... um... the background music and sound effects were decent.
No penalties assessed.
Final Comments: Kudos for trying something that hasn't been tried before, but the process of gameplay and the player experience need to be thought through a bit more.
TOTAL SCORE: 8.5 / 30 PTS
