That was fine
You did a pretty good job there guy.
That was fun. Some of it was very clever.
bagels and orange juice, accompanied by soothing jazz and a white background
that sounds delightful.
Mmmm, glad you enjoyed your two dimensional snacks. :]
That was great!
A VAST improvement over your other more recent games. I'm confused why nobody likes it, maybe it just doesn't work on their computers cause they're weak. Anyway, I would first like to point out the fact that the music, and variety in the music is far better in this games than they have been in the last few. You guys really should do some more semi-3d stuff, this was really fun. The gameplay was relatively simple, and slightly challenging, so that it didn't get boring and made me want to keep playing. Also, because there were unlockables there was a reason to keep playing. My only complaint was that there wasn't really an ending, which i thought there should be after you beat the last level. Great job though guys, keep up the good work!
Really fun idea, really clever game. Seriously, who doesn't like shooting people out of cannons?
These are the kinds of games that flash is meant for.
A very clever game idea, with a really cool visual style. The music was good, but it was very repetitive and there was no variety. if you added in more music, maybe different songs every level or so, it would feel much better.
Great job, keep up the good work!
Really close to being good
It was almost good, but there were some problems. Let's start out with the good:
Introduction. The animation in the beginning was probably the best part. This is a game though.
Grapnics: James the Zebra has always had a nice style, and the grapnics and animation are really good. But again, that's not what a game is supposed to be about.
The Music, it really not good at all. Next game make the music better, and add a little more variety.
Speed: Too slow. It felt like my computer was making it lag, so I set it down to low quality. However, that shouldn't be happening because my computer is pretty high quality, so if this was the problem, you guys have some serious file size issues, and should seriously consider fixing that for your next game.
Platforming: Even if it was faster, there just wasn't enough variety. Sure, platformers are just run and jump, but there were no ramps, springs, powerups, attacks, double-jumping, or anything that could have added some spice to the platforming other than the net climbing, which just felt kind of like a chore. These games could really be a lot better if you guys just spent a little more time trying to make it more fun to play. The game really felt like a chore. it was slow, and all you could do was run, jump, climb, and collect the coins, which really isn't fun at all. Please consider this stuff for your next game, because you clearly possess the skills to make some really great flash games, like you have in the past. If it's not fun, don't release it, fix it up and make sure it's a game you, and everyone else will most likely be happy with. Thanks, and seriously think about this constructive criticism for your next game.
I guess the James series is less about making epic innovative games and more about refining the art of making simple arcadey-feeling games.
I understand that if its running slow that can really ruin the experience
Nice and calm, but also competitive
A cool game, not too crazy unless you're really competitive, but not too boring either. This would be great for the DS. The music was also relaxing, which made for a nice atmosphere. Certainly one of your better recent game attempts.
It was alright, not something that i'd play again. You guys need to return to what made James the Christmas Zebra great. The original James the Zebra was simple and fun in both gameplay and art, and had a nice atmosphere. Detective Grimore was also great. The art and atmosphere was really good, and the characters were interesting. This is not something to look back at years later and say, "wow I loved that game" like Grimore or the original James. Make sure the game is good before putting all your time into making it.
Nothing incredible, but a very fun, simple game. The kind of stuff that newgrounds is meant for. Thank you for being original.
If you guys made this a little shinier, made the delay time slower, and spice up the controls, you could have a really excellent XBLA game going.
