    Rate ALL the things — Part 3!

    I’m in ur base, rating ur gamez!

    This is the third in a series of posts that I have begun Monday. Every night, I try to rate as many games as I can, leaving each game a constructive message. I pick 5 of the games I played that night, and highlight them on a post. This has been loads of fun, and I have already found quite a few surprises. Although I’m not sure I can go through all 1000 games before the end of the voting period is done. So feel free to ask me to rate your game in the comments!

    My picks for today are:

    AB-Alone — Thanks Sonnybone for suggesting this game to me. This is an adventure/puzzle game with a very good difficulty balance. You will die a few times trying to figure out what to do, but you won’t feel hopelessly lost. There is some nice humor in the game, and the puzzle is nice too. The graphics are a bit weird, but all in all, a game worth playing.

    Robotic Friend — A nice platformer — it has some rough spots in the beginning, like a badly placed intro screen, and no command sheet, but the map is extense without feeling too big, and the author made some nice decisions regarding the effect of water in the player.

    Alone – WITS — The game is still quite rough, but it deserves praise for the unique gameplay and controls. The goal is to keep the “enemy” alone by moving the dots that you control away from it. With a bit of graphical and sound tweaking, it could be a game worthy of Orisinal.

    Alone in the Rain — The most hilarious game I have played in LD so far. Better played when drunk. I won’t spoil the surprise for you. Just click play. Don’t read comments. Don’t watch screenshots. Just play this already!

    Lloyd’s Tale — A platformer with challenging, but not frustrating, levels. The controls are very responsive, there is a variety of obstacles, and the authors even hid an Easter egg in the game (not kittens, unfortunately). Quite fun, worth a play.

      Gonna check out a few of those games, thanks for the highlights. It’s amazing how embracing this community is when it comes to playing and giving honest feedback!

      If you’d like to play a platform-puzzler (no kitties, not enough time sorry) have a look at The Wizard Apprentice: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-22/?action=rate&uid=8856. The more brutally honest the feedback, the better. :P

      Oh wow, you’re up to 3 posts like this now! I really appreciated the first one you made and it inspired me to do something similar.

      After I’m done with all these games I’ll rate and review yours as well. Care to rate and review mine?

      I look forward to these. I’ve been rating like crazy, but I’m either picking at random or following through from a post mortem blog or a HEY LOOK AT THIS post.

      THANKS FOR HIGHLIGHTING MY GAME!

      I’ll be making a similar post with some games that I’ve enjoyed.

      I wrote a small “tool/page” for those who want to try and play/rate most (or all) the games for LD22:

      http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2011/12/21/ludrator-keep-track-of-the-games-youve-played-and-rated/

      It might be useful :-). And if you don’t mind, here is my game too :-)
