7th comment on the AGS Games Page, finally an overall rating and AGS Awards Nominations open

The latest commentator wasn't quite as complimentary about the gameplay as others have been, though he liked the humour a lot it seems.

"I played the full version, yay! I was excited to see the game complete. The jokes, and Captain Disaster himself were really fun to play. The voice-acting was okay. The music and sound-effects were good. The story was fun, but strange in some places, as were the puzzles, so I admit I used the walk-through to get unstuck at times. I felt that some story and/or puzzle elements may have been rushed. But overall, I enjoyed the game. I laughed, and laughed again. :)"

We've also now reached the 5 individual ratings required to get an overall score.  The overall rating isn't quite everything I'd hoped for, however it's not bad at all.

Puzzles & Pacing:
Overall Enjoyment:

Also the AGS Awards 2017 nominations are now open until 13:59 GMT on Saturday 10 February 2018, sop please head over to the Nominations Page and hopefully you'll deem Captain Disaster worthy of a nomination (or two... or three... or as many as you like! :-D).

6th comment on AGS Games Page

The comments are coming in thick and fast (well, relatively speaking) but for some reason we still have less than the 5 individual ratings to give an overall score!  Agonising!!  (If you've played the game and haven't rated it yet I'd be massively grateful for your honest ratings on the AGS Game Page!)

Still it is a VERY nice comment. :-)

"Really hilarious comedy point-and-click of the classic sort. Any fan of Space Quest would love this to pieces. Puzzles are spot-on, never really got stuck for any extreme length of time and yet they were not too easy either. Right in the Goldilocks Zone! Visuals are nice and pay homage to the old school point and clicks and work for the retro pixel art aesthetic that this game is going for. (Side note: Captain D's surprised face cracks me up. I order at Starbucks with that face and it never fails to crack the barrista up either.) If you like your British humor extra cheesy with a cheesy stuffed crust and smothered in cheese sauce (as many old-school p-n-cs were) then you will love this. There are so many sci-fi references in here, if it was any more dense with Whovian, Star Trek, Star Wars and other 20th-century IP callbacks it would turn into a neutron star with the face of the Cat from Red Dwarf.

I give it 6 1/2 faux Alan Rickmans out of 5! :D"

This comment comes from SilverSpook, who is a fellow dev (he made the very highly regarded Neofeud) and also streamed himself playing Captain Disaster in: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots.

5th comment on AGS Games Page

Yeah I know, I'd called them "reviews" before but now that I've got a shiny real review on a gaming website, I'm getting all highfalutin and stuff.  Anyway we always appreciate comments from players and especially seeing that someone else has enjoyed playing Stomping Boots!

"I found it to be a delightful & engaging game brought to life with an interesting story, humour that I could immediately identify with & pretty good voice acting!"

These and the other 4 nice comments so far can be found on the AGS Game Page for Captain Disaster in: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots.
