My entry for Build a Machine. Credits etc. in the readme. Enjoy, and if you aren't happy with the quality of your scientists, use the quality control function of the machine (The button labelled "KILL").

4 stars, i acidentaly pressed 5 once so i rated it again, sorry for that.

-bruswork=3star. it is ok but not really great. but it is not bad neither.
-lightning=4 star. it shows the enviroment of the lab and makes you think your in a real lab.
-gameplay=5 star. of all maps submited for the compo this is definatly the one who is the funniest. let the scientist talk against eachother and then squahs one>).
so overall its a 4 star.

also the machine fits in the enviroment the most as the target of the compo was. and it is a very orignal map. but maby you should have made the machine produce hundreds of scientist in stead of 8 and then reset again.

This map is fun! I piled loads of sci's up and pressed the kill button continuosly!

Here's my review:

Gameplay: 5 Stars - It's incredibly fun!
Entity use: 5 - Those lasers are amazing.
Brushwork use: 3 - The brushwork is a bit simple.
Overall: 13/15 - A fun map, shame about the lack of brush detail though.

The glass box with the sign stuck on it was good.
avatar Vassy says: 28th July 2004, 14:29 PM
I'm not much of a brushwork person...I've never really focused on brushwork for competitions. Nice to know that people enjoyed it. The reason I limited it to 5 scientists at a time is because they sometimes got stuck if several were there at once. That conveyor was harder to make than I expected...

GOOD THINGS:
+Liked The Teleportation thingie
+KILL BUTTON!! CRUSH THEM SCI'S!
+CONVEYER BELTS, SLIP & SLIDIE SCI'S!

BAD THINGS:
-BrushWork.

I give it a 4 1/2. but since there is no 4 1/2 stars,
i give it 5.
avatar Vassy says: 29th July 2004, 07:23 AM
Ooh. 5 stars. I know the brushwork sucks, but I hardly ever bother with brushwork for compos...the priority is to get it to do what the compo says it should do. I improve brushwork if I have time.

4 Stars:

-1/2 a star for no screams of agony from the scientists
-1/2 a star for YOU screaming at me to rate/comment! :P
avatar Vassy says: 29th July 2004, 15:03 PM
Well, 4 stars is still the best I've ever had. Thanks everyone.
avatar M_gargantua says: 30th July 2004, 16:17 PM
don't you mean this would have been your compo entry.

anyway its great and i bet you probably would have beat seventh.
avatar Vassy says: 30th July 2004, 16:46 PM
No, it was my compo entry...it didn't beat Seventh. I did enter it though. Seventh's was amazing...the moment I played it, I knew I was doomed. Oh well. Maybe next time ;)
avatar M_gargantua says: 30th July 2004, 21:17 PM
well it didn't get a place in it and wasn't mentiond above the results so maybe andy didn't get it.
avatar Vassy says: 31st July 2004, 19:06 PM
No, it wasn't mentioned due to lack of time, and space on the results page. I emailed Andy, and he definitely got it. He said he liked it, but it didn't place.
avatar pepper says: 3rd August 2004, 20:02 PM
this one is much better then 7th one and much more fun, no offence 7th
avatar The_6th_Monkey says: 6th August 2004, 10:57 AM
wtf how'd this not get a place in the trophys....the 2nd and 3rd place maps looked nooby and had big bugs (like not all buttons had to be pressed on one). This one should of at least got a medal...this is an injustice :S
:D:D
avatar goingloopy says: 7th August 2004, 11:25 AM
