Addictive flash games
« on: November 08, 2008, 10:58:49 PM »
ITT, addictive flash games.  The more obscure, the better.  Try to avoid posting games from mainstream sites, or crappy games.

I'll start off with a game that is seriously evil!

anyway, my criticism would be that it's designed to make you type as fast as you can, rather than typing to the music's beat, although I'm guessing that's bit harder to program than something like DDR or PUMP.

I have a few criticisms of this game (most revolve around the fact that it's so user unfriendly), but it is rather addictive.  And evil.  I'd imagine it's a lot easier for a native Japanese speaker to play.  The rare occasions where I come across I word I recognize, I can usually bust it out pretty quick, but most of the time it's random letters and reaction.  I hate it when I'm trying to type a word, miss a single letter, and have already types out the rest of the word before I can react and readjust.  Oh, and some of the lighter backgrounds make my eyes hurt.

That's why I can only play low level Japanese songs, it's tons easier with english (THEY HAVE OP OF KAIBA OMG).

This is serious flaw that I for one, have no idea why they aren't fixing it. For games like PUMP for example (which I'm more familiar with than DDR), once you can make a mistake like missing a beat or making a wrong step, you can't undo the mistake. However you don't have to go back and correct it. This is crucial because it still connects you to the music's flow. Nothing is more frustrating than to break yourself from that flow and suddenly the music becomes background noise as your brain tries to figure out where you went wrong.

But it was nice interacting with familiar songs again.

I'm a huge fan of her works; everything I've played I found really addictive.

They're really cutesy, and rather difficult, for that matter @_@;;;

Most of the games are pretty intuitive. Also, Dr. Yagokoro has the worst Miku abuse I've ever seen.

I don't have opinions. I have facts.

I'd qualify, though I really suck at the STGs.  SA absolutely killed me though mostly because of its difficulty.  Still playing SWR on a fairly regular basis though.

I'm not sure if this site qualifies as obscure, not mainstream and not crappy, but dammit I love it too much to not share it, even if everyone knows about it already. It's iyashikei made flash games.
