i'm already addicted to the psyche.. this game is great. i can't figure out what to do with HBJR's, and slide wouldn't work on wabbit (it's an outdated version btw, since recent versions don't support XP drag and drop of programs).

My reviews:

Psyche: Epic and one of the best stories I've seen in a calc game.

Graphics: 9/10 (It's slightly slow)
Playability:  9.9/10 (It might get boring on the hundredth try)
Story: 10/10
Fudge factor: Blue/10 (Lots of fudge)
Difficulty: 8/10 (Level 10 is pretty difficult, though)

Slide: I played this after Psyche, so I felt like the game was similar.
Graphics: 7.8/10 (Not as detailed and slightly slower than Psyche)
Playability: 9.9/10
Story: 4/10 (You can guess why)
Fudge factor: 37/10 (I'm feeling like a 37 today)
Difficulty: 6/10 (Too easy)

Puzzle: The intro graphics are kind of annoying. I couldn't figure out how to play this game, so I don't have much to say.

Graphics: 7/10 (Decent, but I would have liked a title screen)
Playability: N/A (I couldn't figure out how to play. I ended up pressing random buttons on the left column)
Story: 6/10 (Well, it had one)
Fudge factor: Netham45 is a Lobster
Difficulty: N/A

a fine match, fellows!
psyche was delicious because it was pretty all around (four level gray and nice graphic design, fun plot with fun wording, etc). i'm not really the sliding puzzle type, but this one had enough variety to make it fun and original. for those reasons, it is my choice.

-notes for the other fellows-

michael_lee:
it was a bit easy, and the graphics were a little messy, but i liked the smooth scrolling very much, and i was infinitely amused by the sprite change when the character is left motionless for a while XD

happybob:
fun-fun plot :P
i figured out the controls, but they were a little annoying. thtill, nice controls and picture-drawing skillage.

to everybloody:
what's with all the sliding puzzles?!

Too easy? X.X
Half of my classmates at school couldn't solve it, so I purposely tuned it down a little...
I guess I really underestimated you guys.

I don't have access to a computer right now -- I can't wait to try the entries!

Lol, seems like Michael and I were both inspired by Pokemon :P

Yeah, I hated the level designing part. (although I like level 10 and 11). I was really worried about the difficulty; whether you guys would find it too hard or easy, but seems like I managed to get it close enough. This is also why I included a level editor.

OMG Psyche is awesome! Oh my god, when I saw that title screen I was already happy, when I played it even happier!

Slide was good, but I also didn't figure out how to play puzzle :S

Someone figgured out the conrols!

After i subbmitted i totally rewrote my code so that the controlls are just the arrow keys.
loading time is less than a 3rd of what it was.
Hint was removed because it wasn't helpful.
Empty block is now a filled "Gray" box.

I guess I really underestimated you guys.

I thought it was kind of like programming actually. You just pick a path to where you want to go and modify it as you move along.

Psyche:
*Sigh* much better then mine.  I like the sliding blocks, too.  They added an interesting gameplay element.

Happybobjr:
Controls are weird, but nice pic.

Hmm.  Maybe programmers are better at these types of logic games?

i just managed to get slide to work (worked in doors but not as no-stub).

i liked it, but it was very similar psyche, but less challenging, though i did enjoy the scrolling. i give psyche my vote due to the lack of storyline on slide, but i think with a few improvements slide could be better than psyche with more time invested into it.

I've only played Psyche so far, but I love it.
The only problem I have is that the level editor freezes when I run it.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.
