I like it, it's just not as good as the others
Funny, but not up to standard with the rest.
This. Is. Win.
This is a VERY well done little cartoon for its own right, but that you wrapped in a basic truth about our world, you are the man! Not The Man, but...well, you know.
GOOD JOB! This is awesome.
You really ought to put up a code and let people put this on their sites, to help spread the word.
One funny part...
The Tux part was rather amusing, that's where the stars are coming from.
For the most part however, it was not funny, nor reflective of truth. None of the Mac VS PC ads are based on opinion, they just tell you things that are absolutely TRUE, beyond dispute, and let you make the decision yourself.
This has been done many times before, and every time it's people just dissing the ads, without any ammo. You don't have any points, the closest you have is "all computers suck" but you don't have any reasons why or anything.
I don't really mind dissing of Macs as long as it has decent reasons to do so, the problem is they are quite honestly hard to find. Fact is, they just don't break down as much as PCs do, that's just the way it is. Not trying to be a fanboi or say that Macs are completely infallible....but they are generally not going to break down as easily, the plain and simple truth.
This isn't a very good parody.
They always talk about the good points of macs and the bad points of PCs, so yes, they ARE biased, my friend. I've never seen a mac ad that ever tackles the BAD points of a mac (or good points of a PC)... but then again, that approach to advertising wouldn't sell macs as well, would it? And at the end of the day, that's the only reason those annoying commercials exist anyway. Discussing both the good and bad about Macs would be the absolute truth, not what they currently do. And all computers have problems, I've used faulty macs before as well as faulty PCs. They're both machines made by man and, thus, are prone to failure. They have perks, but aren't perfect. In fact, far from it. And this isn't supposed to parody either machine physically, just Apple's approach to advertising. I hate when ANY company uses the 'endlessly make the competitor look bad' approach to advertising.
Glad you enjoyed what you did, in any case.
It's pretty funny
Funny stuff, cool little game. I like it overall, but take serious issue with a couple of things.
For one, the Mac interface pictured looks to be from Panther, or about 4 years old! Why not Leopard? It's so much cooler! :P
And also, wtf with the Steve Jobs voice? I get the Bill Gates one, it's an exaggeration of his nerdiness. Whereas the Steve Jobs, just absolutely no relation to what he's really like...have you ever even like, watched him present something? This is nothing like him
Still, all around a good job :)
Why would you put so much time into this?
I'll start off by stating the obvious: this is incredibly well done. The art is great, the features of the game are SWEET, it's got very awesome mechanics to it. From a technical perspective this is AWESOME.
However, even with all the über sweet features this thing has, I can only be entertained by what amounts to a coin flip for so long. I can see you tried to make it more engaging with the meter, but it's just not that interesting.
Very disappointing, to be honest, to see all of the coolness (some of this I dare say is revolutionary) go to (in my opinion) a complete waste.
Still, kudos to you for the graphics and gameplay features, very good work.
Revolutionary Coding; Terrible Game
I think you already realize this, but the game itself really sucks. The story's crap, and there are a lot of flaws with the gameplay. For example, it's a web based game, so scrolling kinda fucks with the page.
And it's not very responsive, it's laggy, and it's not a bad computer that is causing this, my computer is top notch. It doesn't seem like a performance issue at all in fact, it just seems like the programming of how things move is a little weird. You probably know what I mean, it's hard to put into words.
Anyway, this is a revolutionary step forward in Flash Gaming. With improvements, this engine could be incredible. What you have done here is very cool, even if it's not really playable yet. It's a proof of concept. I can't wait until you create something from this!
Also, I'd like to play this full screen, any chance of getting a Macintosh projector .app export of it?
