Review # 1 for Devi Ant Where would you go for a holiday?
Them's Fightin' Words
    This is likely just a scratch from something bigger (and better) in the future - FAR AWAY in the future...
Graphics
    There were some good and some bad. There were only few tiles, what were actually WORKED on a little. They were so worked on, that it makes me think, if the author stole it from somewhere. He really knows, how to stuke in few colors and use them to create mediocre map graphics. What comes to the NPC strings... Well... The first look at the Player string gives a look of a Grim Reaper with a blue staff. In further game, there's only two NPC's... Two bubbles.
 
Storyline
    You start from the upper-left screen with this grimreaperish fellow named "bubble". With no specific reason you stand behind somehing, that brings an image of graveyard. in the corner of grassy plain. As you move forth, you fight some random battles against strange "axe murderers" and few others. So far so good, huh? Well, you might have noticed the running red bubble (named as "red" - how come...), which you get in your team by talking to it and receiving thanks for killing "those monsters" and you have "gained his loyalty" and he will help you to "kill the Giant Bubble".

Now it's prime time to move inside the house. You find yourself from a sort of village, where is that gigantic bubble... He's in "chase mode" and when he catches you, he says "Don't tread on my lawns!".

A battle... A victory... That's it.
Now you see a purple bubble, who says, he/she's been watching you for years.
Then she rewards you with brass legs.

End of story.
 
Gameplay
    I know, what open-ended game means, but this one goes too far... Let's see... A guy, wielding a "syth" or scythe... A bubble, who's likely to join for nothing - and the big bubble. That's it. Along with fighting against the badly-drawn enemies, you could also take a walk in the (almost) neverending field in the first map. Luckily there's a little "shop -sign" in the second map. A white sign with blood leaked all over it seemingly. Good! A funny moment with Blood and Gore! You can save there and buy some "hp", which are bananas according to the description. And there the bananas are "yuck"?
 
  Battle
    Thank god, there was existing battles. However there's some questioning about the backdrops. For example in one of them you fight in a title screen for example. Mostly the screen is black and you fight against either the axe murderers or some bubbles and the giant bubble in the end.
 
  Map Design
    Desinged by using all the simplicity, the author could possibly find. However the disturbance is the "first place", where you see only grass, grass and more grass... And that you find a sufficient outdoors village (if two houses is a village) INSIDE a building. And by the way, you can't enter either of them...
 
  Balance
    Balance? With or without the help of red bubble you could beat them all up with a little-finger... There was no balance and if there was, it was kept in the very minimum. Even the boss was likely to go down in few rounds.
 
Music
    Hope, you got your insurance ok and grave ready. Using the music from Runescape sends YOU to death-row. Who sensible man actually even does that? I didn't recognize the other musics, but the RS world musics did the trick. You really should think, before you use them.  
Enjoyment
    There were few moments, which made the smile to come up on my face, but still this was quite unenjoyable game.

 
Final Blows
    The good thing was the title screen and the little round bushes. The bonus was also the little "humoristic snack" with the signs. THe huge minus was the music, you hideously stole from Jagex. Otherwise this game is worth of creating. Advance it, create it more, mould and shape it. And change the music!
Bananas are

Bananas are "yuck"?! WTF!
Final Scores
Graphics: 3.5/10.0
Some ups and some downs... "beginner" graphics
Storyline: 2/10.0
Get yourself a good story and THEN make a game from it.
Gameplay: 1.5/10.0
What gameplay? The random battles gave you a score...
Music: 1/10.0
No. No No No NO! Change the music to OTHER, that RS - for your own good.
Enjoyment: 1.5/10.0
Without the few humoristic spots, I would have wasted 20 minutes of my life.
Overall Grade: F+
Final Thoughts
    This is definietly not even close to a downloadable game. Yet the game still has room to - grow up a bit.
