An interesting and under appreciated concept, I admit. I've always had a soft spot for area control games, but this project is a bit under developed. I would suggest implementing some extra features such as enemies, more interesting background music, etc. Basically, it needs expansion before I can fully rate it.
Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely game to start with. The characters and background elements are all nicely done, and the coloring is interesting as well, but it just needs a little extra spice. As it stands, you got a few plays out of me, but it gets dull after a while. It needs that added flavor to give it some special replayability.
Aside from the points made above, well done. It was an enjoyable little game while I played it, and it took a silly concept and turned it into a somewhat interesting flash. Keep up your work!
Perhaps a rehash of other previously explored concepts is not a good idea. To put it bluntly, this 'windows simulator' thing has been done before. If you search up the word 'Windows' on the site, there are plenty of other simulators for Windows that not only have more depth to them, but are also less stale and uninteresting.
This is not to say that this particular game is not well made. It handles well, feels stable, and has all of the basic components of a good flash game; but aside from that it has little in the way of redeeming qualities. The constant error messages and 'restarts' are boring and childish. Not only that, but they exist as an homage to a joke that has been used so many times that it hurts to see it again.
My recommendation is this: explore a different category of game, perhaps one that is outside of what you consider to be your 'safe zone', and come up with something original and fun.
Truly a beautiful piece here. While it isn't the most stunning thing ever, and I'm sure it will eventually be passed over for something else, this has a place here on Newgrounds. I found myself feeling genuinely moved by this submission, and I love it when games or movies are able to do that.
Animation / Graphics - It isn't the best in this field, but that isn't exactly necessary with something like this; what was important was the message it delivered. It was very moving and emotional, and I love it so much. Even still, I can tell from even just a small glance that this submission had a lot of effort put into it on this field. Good work!
Story - While it isn't exactly a long story, it is a good one nonetheless. It was very sad, and moving as I said before. The decision you are finally faced with in the end is very difficult to choose, but in the end I took my chances. I love this story, and I can't wait to see more of this out of you.
Audio - The music was a wonderful touch, I admit. It added just right to the emotional scenes, and added depth to the gravity of the decision you had to make in the end. The ending music was sad as well. I'm definitely glad you used it, as it made the submission so much better than it would have been.
Overall - Great submission, very emotional, very moving. I loved this submission not for the graphics or replay value, but for the story it presented. It isn't the longest thing on Newgrounds, but it doesn't have to be. The story makes it beautiful all the same.
This seems like a very interesting game indeed. I played through it, and I love the concept. It is very simple, while at the same time being fun, family friendly, and entertaining at the same time.
Animation / Graphics - The graphics and animation for this are very nicely done. While the movements do seem rather stiff, they get the point across and are done well. The coloring on the characters, and backgrounds was really interesting as well, definitely rather eye catching. Well done overall, loved this section.
Story - The story was pretty bread and butter, and seemed rather cute. I definitely loved the robot aspect of the story because I am a sci-fi nerd. It could have been made a little bit more complex and interesting, but it does the job of a basic plot and I enjoyed it.
Audio - The music and background noise was interesting at first, but I found it to become rather irksome after hearing several loops of it a hundred times. Variation on the music could do good for something like this, as it would make players less inclined to mute it. Music is always a key part of any movie or game, so this is not a laughable topic.
Overall - Very nice, family friendly game that provides entertainment for hours. I definitely enjoyed it, and would recommend it to others as well. Keep it up, and keep making more games, as I look forward to them.
Seemed like an alright game. It is definitely silly, and fun, but there is obviously room for improvement here and there.
Character - This is the part I saw lacking the most. The character, I know, was just a representation of someone to be asked questions, but it still could have been made better. It just seems far too simplistic for my liking. Perhaps adding more detail would help overall.
Music - The music was nice, though it didn't seem in touch with the animation itself, it was a good enough song to be in the flash without taking away from the rest of it. Good choice for music, in my opinion.
Answers - The answers were alright, I'll admit some of them tickled me, but they could have been funnier. The part where the character turned into Michael Jackson was a tad confusing however, and you could have at least cut around the face to make it feel better.
Overall - It was alright. Could be better, but it was indeed a good effort. Keep it up

This is old work, I hate it.
Well, even though the graphics get bad around the end, I know that it was an intended effect, and I really loved it. While most people would misconceive this as bad animation, or a technical error, I understand that it is an art effect, and it was used very well.
Animation / Graphics - I loved the animation and graphics, from the very beginning to the very end. It is clear that you are a very talented animator and flash designer, as the character models, and their running, jumping, and falling models are very well done and put together. I think you did an extremely good job making the characters less and less condensed as the player travels to the right.
Story - The story seemed simple enough, guy doesn't like living where he is living, so he goes off to the right. As time goes on, things seem to get weirder and weirder and less condensed. He likes this effect so he keeps on going until the game cannot potentially continue on getting less condensed, thus ending. Very well thought and put together.
Audio - The music in this animation plays a key role, as with motion to the right, it too degrades along with the graphics and animation. I think the song is very nice, and it fits in extremely well with the "Mario" like theme that you had going with this flash. Good job on making it, it was wonderful.
Overall - I loved this flash, and it is very well put together, though the game play does get slightly repetitive as time goes on, it is very nice, and deserves any award it is presented, as it really makes you think about animation and how it changes over the years. Good work, sir.
Normally for a game like this, before playing it I would imagine that it would eventually get repetitive over a large amount of time, and I can't say I didn't think that before I played this, but it really changed my mind when I played it. It truly is amazing how fast you lose track of time playing this game.
Animation / Graphics - The animations and graphics were all very cute and amusing, I found them to be a very enriching part of the game play, and without them the game would not be near as fun as it is in this form. It's obvious that it isn't work of a world renown artist, but it is very well done, and fitting with the games style and humor.
Story - Even for such a childish, cute little game like this, it had a very nice plot. Bull creature is captured by gummies and forced to fight a jawbreaker, so he doesn't want to and keeps trying to escape each time they recapture him. It's a very nice plot, and suit the game entirely.
Audio - Most people tend to leave audio out on their reviews in flash animations, but it plays a very key part in this flash, its tune keeps the action in the game going smoothly, and it fits in, even if it feels like it is just a one rhythm loop, I think it works really, really well with this animation.
Overall - It's a very nice, and addicting game, and you definitely lose track of the time when you are playing it, and it is an excellent game overall. The audio flows beautifully with the rest of the game, the animation and graphics are all very well done and fit with the art of the game, and it is overall a great flash. I love it.
I have to say, this is quite an amusing game that you have created. I have played quite a few games about infecting and taking over myself, but none of them have ever really touched on the pre-pandemic era of an infection.
Animation / Graphics - As small a game this is, it is very well animation, and was honestly beyond what I expected to see when I was loading up the game and getting pumped to play it. The blood looks realistically like actual blood in its microscopic form, and the way it spins with motion is quite nice. The white blood cells, and other enemies in the game are just as well animated as the regular blood.
Story - Although it wasn't really all that much of a story, it was quite entertaining seeing the minds and thought process of a functioning army of diseases, I didn't really think that they would be all that eager to completely destroy the human body! While it is a rather loose plot, I appreciate the humor that was injected into it.
Audio - All throughout the game I was throughly enjoying the music that came along with the game itself, it seemed intense at the appropriate moments, and it seems peaceful and calm and the right ones as well. My favorite audio was probably the track that played during the drug trip scene.
Overall - Very fine game, and a wonderful addition to the portal, you should honestly be proud of this creation, as it deserves every award it is presented.
This game was very addicting, and somewhat challenging, I loved it. Generally I don't enjoy puzzle games like this, but this one was an exception, it is well animated, fun, and an overall good game.
Animation / Graphics - The animation and graphics were magnificent and flowed well with the rest of the game, it felt like I was really at the bottom of the ocean. The only real flaw I saw was the way that the "newborn plants" stuck to the rocks, they sometimes looked unfitting, as if they didn't belong there.
Story - Well, there wasn't really much of a story beside the fact that the new plants were being attacked by animals and other natural toxins and such. I suppose this game doesn't really required any plot or story behind it to be a well animated good time.
Audio - The music was overall acceptable, not really my type of music, but it flows well with the rest of the game, and I think it is a very nice choice for this game, as it flows beautifully with the background and action.
Overall - This is a swell game, it's a great way to spend your free time, and I love it. It is well animated, the audio is acceptable, and it seems like a very nice, family fitting game that could be enjoyed by all.
I have to say I've enjoyed this game, and the whole series. This was a wonderful way to send it off and say goodbye to the Riddle School Series ^_^ I look forward to your further endeavors in the flash world.
