My dear friends,

(I hope I post it in the right subforum LOL )
Once more I need your help with one of my courseworks. Part of the team coursework is to evaluate a game created by another member of the team. The link is here:
http://www.freewebs.com/ellikyni/flashdancer.htm

The porspuse of the game is to use the arrow keys and press them when the arrow represent them hit the markers at the top screan. If you missed the life points reduced.
I created this page just for the purpose of the coursework. I need you honest opinion and if possible to have as meny replies as possible. The question need to be answered are:

Age of player

1) In what level you consider your self is by playing such games?

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Beginner Intermediate Expert

2) How often do you play games and how many hours do you spend on them?

Daily:
Weekly:
Monthly:
I don’t play games

3) What did you like about the above game?

4) What did you dislike?

5)Was it easy to understand the controls and learn how to play it?

6) Did the colures of the game confusing (as some people cannot see some colures)?


7)What other comments would you like to make (for example how to improve it, what to change, or not change anything, any comments at all)


If you have any further comments please do post them :D

I would like to thank you in advance for your help

Yep, it works now :)

Ah, it's like those music games!

Question to 1: Does it mean how good I am in such games? And do I need to give both: a rating between 0 and 10 plus the beginner/intermediate/expert? Or just one of them?

I'm sorry, I'm not quite sure how it is meant :$

Elni

Sorry my fault I should had explain better :$
I prefer in numbers. From scale o to 10 how good you are. 0 is the beginner, 5 is the intermediate and expert goes to 10

Thanks :)

Age: 37

1. I would say in such games I'm at level 3

2. I play games daily (but not such ones)

3. It's cute :)

4. I'm not sure at what screen size this game is supposed to be played. At that small size as you have it on your homepage currently, it is very difficult to see and play it. Especially I've missed a lot of arrows that were moving behind the character.
I also tried in fullscreen (with the direct link of the flash file) once, to see if this made any difference. And it made a very big difference - with the big screen, I saw it much better and had a clearly higher score.
The character is sometimes in the way, which makes it more difficult I think.

5. It was easy to understand how this game works.

6. I did not have problems with the colors.

7. My personal suggestions:
- music would make it more fun
- a restart button would be very useful - after the game is over
- This game should be embedded in a bigger size than it currently is on your homepage.

Thanks for you help Mystery :hug2:

The game supposed to be in a full screen but for some reasons I cannot merge it to show bigger. I'll try to fix it somehow, otherwise I need to find another way for posting it.

Ah, then this game is nice to play :)

You should change the settings in the source code of your page:
width="320" height="240">
is too small, you should add a multiple of it (640 and 480, or even better 800 and 600)

My age: 29

1. Level 3

2. I play games less frequently right now. More chatting or other things. So I would say:

Weekly: 2 -5 times per week.

3. I really like the game Dance, Dance Revolution and this is like a keyboard version of it. :) So I found that quite fun.

4. I had a difficult time seeing a few of the arrows due to the little character hopping in the way of them. But that's all. (I do agree with Mistery about the size, though. I hope you can get that fixed in your scripting. :))

5. It was very easy to learn. Harder to do on my laptop than a PC, I bet, though. The keys on my laptop are so tiny and close together. :P

6. I actually LIKED the colors. :)

7. I would change the dancing character to maybe be a bit smaller so you can see the arrows more clearly before they reach the target. I would also like to see some kinda of dance music to accompany the game. :) (And, again, I agree with Mistery about the REPLAY button. ;))

Overall...nice little game. And I think it can get a bit addicting. :$ Good luck with your coursework. :hug2:

I fixed the size problem ;)
Now is much better thanks for your help Mystery and Escape. I'm glad you both liked it :D

Thanks, this way it is much easier to play :D

(But the character jumps sometimes really in front of some arrows, so that they can't be seen well, even with the bigger screen :P)

Btw, I've edited my post above with my age - sorry, forgot :$
