I liek it.
All right, I thought I'd finish the main game before writing a review.
Now, the game was amazing. I did get put off by william's sprite; it looked a little off with the theme. He looked too simplistic compared to the rest of the game. The art, oh the art of the game was insane. I do love how the rain did not distract me at all from the game itself, yet helped keep the right mood. The minimal use of baddies was interesting, making this more of a "walk around and explore" kind of game, which i enjoyed very much. Music-wise, there was absolutely nothing wrong! It wasnt annoying, or repetitive or flashy, it was just... awesome.
Those fairyflies were KIND of annoying sometimes since they're almost invisible at times (which can either be intentional or not, but sometimes it was just too much). A counter for how many fairyflies you have might also be nice, like at the top corner or something so that you dont have to stop running to count how many little dots are following you.
As derivative as this game was, i liked it. I say derivative, because as much as anyone cares to argue, this game doesnt REALLY bring anything new to the platforming flash game world. It was nice and all, but nothing too special.
Sly's movement at first frustrated me, it seemed unreal (physics-wise i mean) but after a while the fun took over, so it was all good. I cant really put my finger on it, but theres just stuff missing...
And the BOSS BATTLE, FFS.
WOW, it was a smart, unique, clever, foxy idea. But that one giant darkling is an annoying sonofagun. It took me a while to formulate a plan, so that i could take that badass giant down. Fun stuff though, its good for a saturday morning game :)
I give this 4/5 (because i cant give it a 4.5) and 9/10 stars :)
