@daleks You're already completed it.
@Terry_The_Disco_King There is no set deadline, but SIPPYCUpS isn't planned to be open all year round. If you do not do anything for a while, I'll put you on the inactive list, which is just bookkeeping for me to see how many active participants there are.

REVIEWS:
Will get to you later today or tomorrow.

@xAyjAy You do not need to summarize the storyline if you're not going to comment on it. Do you have any thoughts about the gameplay mechanics?

oh, i forgot the comment for the story...well, it is a typical fantasy story, kill a monster that killed one or both of your parents. it works for many fantasy games. also, the creator can expand the story by adding a bigger and/or stronger evil being who plans to destroy the whole world so the hero/s have a new goal.

the gameplay mechanics...you mean the controls of the game?

@daleks You're already completed it.

And when I did it I had already gotten a merit so I could not get another one. Is it wrong that I want someone to critique my comment so I know what I can improve? If you really don't want me to do one then I will not.

@xAyjAy Nevermind about the gameplay mechanics. You had it at the bottom.

@daleks Wait for SIPPYCUpS+.

Enola Prelude:

Graphics:

The Graphics look good, I can see that the Creator put a lot of Effort into the Details for the Items, Weapons, Monsters and the Backround. Also, the Quality is changeable. I have a good PC but I like to play Games in the lowest Quality because then I get that retro-feeling, even when it is in Pixels.

Music and other Sounds:

The Music fits the Game and makes it more authentic. The Intro is not too long and it explains the Reasons for this Adventure.

Storyline:

A young Hero wants to avenge his dead Father by killing a metall Monster. He uses his Fathers Book to learn new Skills on his Journey and collects Items to create stronger and better Weapons to achieve his Goal. The Adventure of this young Man does not end after he killed the Monster, but that is another Story...

it is a typical fantasy story, kill a monster that killed one or both of your parents. it works for many fantasy games. also, the creator can expand the story by adding a bigger and/or stronger evil being who plans to destroy the whole world so the hero/s have a new goal.

Bugs:

It allways tells me that I have unlocked new Achievements, no matter how often I click on them. And the Weaponsmith says "new" everytime I get new Items. Both should only say "new" when I unlocked new Achievements/Weapons.

The Quality changes sometimes on its own. I want that retro-feeling and not jumpy Quality when I change the Music/Sound!

The Game restarts after I completed it but I have still all my crafted Weapons, the same Level I have at the End and all learned Skills...

Rating:

85/100

The unlockable special Attacks, Spells and Limits Breaks are a nice Touch to the Game. It is an easy, funny and enjoyable Game that can be hard at the boss Fights. The not so good Part of the Game is that you can spam your strongest Attacks/Spells only to continue after you restored your Mana. It would be different when the "Restore Mana" Spell costs the User some Health...

The Outro shows us that we might see a Sequel with three Warriors who fight new Monsters and who rescue the whole World. Maybe this Game will be bigger and longer than this one.

^i added the review for the story, now it looks better. any errors like grammar or so?

You might want to fix the capitalization in that new section, but you're good to go.

I'm not too good on grammar and punctuation, but lets see what we can do.
(Hope you don't mind I use your order xAy, it was just so neat and orderly)

Coinbox Hero:

Art/Graphics:

The art/graphics were really well thought out. It looks kind've like a cartoonish Germany(I've never seen Germany) with pixelish people. I mean that's pretty ingenious. However, the art/graphics with the guns shooting the bullets, the bullets looked more like lasers, and none of the weapons were a laser gun. So I deduct a little points for that, but besides that the art/graphics were pretty good.

Music:

The music was like something you would hear in Monsters Inc. and I didn't like Monsters Inc. music too much, because of how peppy it sounded. The coins and guns didn't make it better either, think of it as a mix of Monsters Inc. and. But I guess that's why they added a mute button.

Story:

Mostly like a very short fairy tale. All it says is that there's a coinbox and it needs to be destroyed. It doesn't explain why its there, or why it needs to be destroyed. Even when you do destroy it, the ending doesn't make much sense either(I don't want to spoil it). So the story was just mixed up, terrible in my opinion.

Gameplay:

The game was fun after 10 minutes but then it get really boring because you're basically going nowhere with attacking the coin box. It just goes to show that arrow keys/WASD, spacebar, and a mouse don't always bring lots of fun.

Rating:

7.5/10

Even though in most of my paragraphs, I said that it wasn't good, or it was terrible. The game really did have some enjoyable moments, but could still use some work. It wasn't one of John's best games, but it also wasn't his worst.
