I have done a review for the game Canabalt by AdamAtomic. I'm going to break down the good and the bad of this game. So here we are with my review of Canabalt.
Gameplay: 4.5/5 This is the kind of game where you can spend 2 or 3 hours playing it and not get bored. The game is random every time, so you'll never know what to expect. The concept of the game is very simple, but this is not at all a bad thing. The only thing you have to do in this game is jump and try to avoid objects laying about. As you go longer not hitting the objects, you gain speed. Gaining too much speed is a bad thing, though. One of the only things I didn't like about this game is that windows spawn below you quite often, so it is impossible to break through them. I also didn't like the controls. To jump you have to press X or C. Those are the weirdest choices for buttons ever. Alternatively, you can use the spacebar, but obviously X and C were meant to be used.
Graphics: 4/5 The artwork in this game is very simple, yet very appealing. I never thought I would enjoy seeing so many colorless pixels. I like how the color scheme of greys and blacks sort of describes the mood of the game.
Difficulty: 3/5 I don't really know what to say about the difficulty, because it's really a luck-based game. You never know when there will be a window that's too low, and you never know when you should slow down or not.
Sounds: 5/5 The sounds in this game are fantastic. You can hear everything from the breaking of glass, destructions of buildings, and even simply birds flying away. There's too many different types of sounds to name them all. Good music helps out a bit also.
Replayability: 5/5 You never know what will happen next when you play this game. Windows and giant bombs spawn randomly everywhere when you don't expect them. This is a really good game for playing over and over again and still have lots of fun with it.
Overall: 4.5/5 Canabalt is an all-round great game. There's just something missing to it, though I don't know what. This game isn't good enough for a 5/5, but it's definately better than 4/5. If you havn't played this game yet, I highly reccomend that you do so.
