"1 day a mosquito" (July MAGS)
« on: 24 Jul 2004, 12:29 »
Hi there!

This is my first released game ever and it's an entry to the July-Mags at the same time.

I hope, that it's not too short for MAGS.

You can download it here:

Here's a screenshot:



Hope you like it.

Oh-- and it is definitely not by Yahtzee ;-)

It was short, but I thought it was very good.

Hehe, cool GUI-idea and nice puzzle design.  :)

PS.: Keine deutsche Übersetzung?!?  ;)

It was really short, but  fun. The gui is very unique. I like it (although I have an own entry for this months mags). One suggestion (if you ever make an other mosquito game): It should be possible to choose the direction from which the mosquito pushes the things.

When I first saw this game I thought it would be really lame because of the title. You should consider changing that.

Well boy was I wrong ... This game totally rocks! Totally innovative, original and all. I loved the sound effects and the ending. Good Job!

I REALLY loved the game! Keep up the effort!  ;D

I don't want to knitpick but someone informed me that the
broom vanishes when a certain process is repeated many
times; 20 times he told me. Could this be a bug(not the mosquito)?

Hu?

Never heard of this. What process do you mean? Let's talk in spoilers ;-)

Spoiler: ShowHide
When the broom is first attacked in the right speed, it should fall and pull the ring. After that if you try to attack the broom, mosquito says, it's too heavy for him.


Would be nice, if you could give me some details!

Thanks.

I liked the game, it was kinda funny for me :P

The idea is great! And the the final result is great too.
It's a bit short though, maybe you should make a 2nd part too, a bit longer one :P
You got it!

Coming Soon!

I think the second part should have a good transition between 1 Day a Mosquito and 3 Days a Fart... how about 2 Days a Stink bug? :P

Edit: damn, I just remembered that the name of the game was changed to 3 Minutes a Fart! Damn you Mills, how come you can't make a game that lasts 3 days?!?!  >:(
