Normality reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Game Description: First person Quest 1996 release. The Action takes place in a very strange world, where our main character was punished by house arrest with 24-hour TV watching. We have to get out of the room and go on a trip to an unusual city, get acquainted with eccentric characters and do strange and illogical actions. Pros: ¥ No. Cons: ¥ Outdated Graphics. ¥ Nasty Music and voice-acting characters. ¥ Inconvenient Control-Walking with the mouse or arrows on the keyboard. ¥ Not Logical actions with objects. ¥ Weak Plot. ¥ Flat Humor. Bottom Line: I Thought I was sitting and wondering how I could miss such a game in my younger years... Launched and understood... In this game mediocre everything and can not be singled out anything... Played through power... I love Retro, but Normality is a passable even for its time, and now the game looks ridiculous and ridiculous. Not recommended. Rating: 2/10 post-match: If you liked this review welcome to the group http://steamcommunity.com/groups/uojer-here you can see the recommended games, other reviews, as well as just chat in good company.

Nice (albeit not that new) concept, but overall this game has many flaws. Basically, it's a 2D platformer in which you control a ball or better, the ball itself moves according to gravity 'cos you can only manoeuver through WASD keys the screen. Ok, do you have in mind the application Windows uses to view photos? In the low bar you can rotate them of 90° degrees? That's what this game does. Left and right keys and the ball (ok the game says that's a deformed creature called The Stalker, to me looks like a badly designed ball) will keep on falling or will float in the air while you go from point A to point B avoiding spikes , flames etc.; of course, while you progress other things are added such as mandatory directional arrows, Mario-like fading blocks, exploding tiles and so on. The game itself is hard and challenging, but overall it's not new at all and it's really badly designed. Every level looks the same, the background is the same and so on. The soundtrack and sounds in general are truly awful. The controls aren't so buggy but ovearll if this game was free, ok, it would surpass many Flash games out there but since it isn't free, I don't think this will add something to your collection if you've been into these kinds of minimalistic Flash gravity platformers for years. Nothing against the game itself or its developers, but I still think that it could have been way more and better refined. And I mean, the achievements are all dubbed "Compleat Sector".. ok, I suck at English and I've never studied it but.. please, at least have someone review your spelling before publishing a game.. ahah
