PyWeek - Universe Factory 27 - feedback

Fun 4 Prod 4 Inno 5


This is such a cool concept! I really like this idea and I had fun with it. It's very satisfying to play a game where your solution becomes art. On the gameplay, I'm glad you added "easy mode". Some of the bonus levels are hard without easy mode because it's difficult to pay attention to all quadrants, so the each trial-and-error step takes a bit of time for the player. I would have enjoyed a challenge level somewhere between "easy mode" and the default mode. I wonder if "easy mode" should be the default because there's already room to add challenge even in "easy mode" as you've already explored in your levels, for example with the idea of red shapes. I guess you'd want the player to look at the overall shape, but maybe there is a way to add some not-too-hard features on the overall shape such a symmetrical points. Anyway, excellent game!

nice little game, the puzzles were not too hard, but also not very challenging, overall a good production

This is probably the most creative game this pyweek and more fun then I would have expected. Some of the snowflakes I made are really ugly but that may very well be my own fault.

Very, very cool stuff

The idea of building snowflakes is very interesting, and the UI and snowflake-drawing are both very well done. I found the step up in difficulty from story to bonus levels was quite large, and I found myself enabling easy-mode on the bonuses.

This was really nice: I couldn’t imagine at first how you could make a game out of this, but this was fun. The concept was very cool, and challenging, but I really liked the easy mode switch. Super nice production values too. I really liked the story that went along with the gameplay, and great music choices too.

Great concept with amazing polish! The design of the editor from transparence to highlighting red and blue points is really nice and is surprisingly bug free.

The back story is a nice touch and the snowfall showing the gallery was really cool to watch (pun possibly intended).

This makes me want some kind of "editor jam" in the style of game jams.

Creating unique designs is enjoyable, and having an online gallery is perfect - but I'm not seeing any snowflakes that weren't made by you (and they mostly have automatic names). The positioning game is trial and error, but there seem to be plenty of pieces to do it with.

I followed the instructions. I have all the requirements installed with Python 3.7. Here's what I get from the command line:

$ python3
pygame 1.9.5

This is fun! I like the way the gallery is presented as a snowfall -- cool idea.

An unusual puzzle game. I quite enjoyed this.
