Points from tuomo

Joe (14 + TAS):
Gameplay controls: 3 points. Controls are clear, once you try them. Playing also feels fun, not too slow nor too fast.
Play time: 3 points. Play time, even when short, is very fun. “hours of entartainment” doesnt really suit it, since the game is too short in my opinion. 15 minutes is enough to pass this game, but its 15 minutes well spent!
Presentation: 3 points. I’d give 4 if i could. I love the graphics, sound effects and music. The beginning where the volumestuff just turn black n white and joe walks trough the credits is amazing. The sound is good, but glitches from time to time. like when you open the map, the sound glitches if you move the other buttons. also sometimes you have to open the map, the screen glitches and you nees to close and open it again.
Story: 2 points. Story is cool, but too short, and no middle scenes, only in the end and start.
Punk theme: 1 point. game is very cute, and only “punk” thing is the music and the writing on the walls.
Community involvement: i guess 2 points. Uses TAS.

SteamRocketGlider (7 + TAS) :
Simple game, simple review.
Gameplay: Simple. 2 points. The controls are a little slow, but overall good.
Play time: 1 point. fun in the beginning, but gets boring quite quickly. there isn’t really a lot to do.
Presentation: 2 points. Plain, but it works.
Story: 0 points. There is no story.
Punk: 1 point. kinda steampunk, since the glider uses steam.
Community: 1 point i guess
