Sky Boarder III Sky Boarder III

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I'm hooked, but v.2 just left me hanging...

Wow! This is the kind of game that comes along once in a blue moon, that renews my interest in Newgrounds and renews my faith in home-grown Flash productions! It sounds like V.2 resolved a lot of the kinks from the previous iteration, but I never got to see the 5 new bosses, because the Sandworm never seems to show up for me! Is there something I'm missing? If so, you should definitely at least drop a hint as to what to do to get him to show his ugly mug, because I'm really bummed that I can't finish the game that I was enjoying so much!
I wonder if some of the people who claim they're having problems with the "save" feature might just be confused by the interface... I was a bit confused the first time I tried to save, because the "Save/My Progress" button at first glance looks like an "auto-save" button, when in fact it does nothing... it's not made very obvious that the SLOTS ABOVE the button are in fact the only way to save your games, and some people may not take the time to figure that out...

THIS WAS NOT VERSION 2!!! I REPEAT....THIS WAS NOT VERSION 2. VERSION 2 is coming early march/end of february. Then all of those things will be in it. The SandWorm boss found way down at the end of west ocean will not really be a Sand Worm boss. As a matter of fact here are the last bosses to be implemented in V2:

-Zero Prime(NORTH SHRINE)
-Atom & Ash(EAST SHRINE)
-Boltvale(WEST SHRINE)
-Mancer(SOUTH OCEAN)
-?(THE DEVIL'S PALACE)


Road Blocks Road Blocks

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Maddeningly good, with a few caveats...

Great game, but you should really learn how to spell "Congratulations"-- the ending page is horrifying for its 72 point misspelling of "Congradulations!"
My only other complain was that the last level was way too easy given how many of the earlier levels made me work... it felt like a let-down to beat the last level in 10 seconds...

Good, but not great

Ignore the links to other "better" games in the reviews... they're all just lame outwar links...

Frikkin hard game, unless you cheat...

Really well-done game, but a bit hard for my tastes... *sigh* maybe I'm just not hardcore anymore.
Fortunately, I found a way to cheat! Just right click on the movie and choose "Play" to skip to the next screen! May not be honorable, but it works!

At least make a demo worth looking at!

I swear, the next guy that makes one of these "if you like this crap teaser, vote it high even though it sucks" animations will be hunted down and shot by yours truly. Or, more realistically, they will become the subject of a Flash animation involving the torture of crappy Flash authors that recieve high ratings at Newgrounds despite their inherent lameness.
'Nuff said.

Wouldn't run using Mac OS!

I've tried to view this game using multiple Macs (a G3 tower and a Powerbook 3400c), and multiple browsers, but in each case I couldn't get past the "Loading..." screen, even after the entire movie had loaded. Therefore, I'm giving this game all 0's because it's not cross-platform, which is a pretty difficult thing for a Flash game to be, as I've never had problems running Flash games on my Macs before.
