Game Chef 2010: Unofficial Reviews

So while the esteemed Monsieur Walton has only gotten through 13 of this year's Game Chef entries so far, one Jonathan Lavallee has taken it upon himself to briefly review all 59 of 'em (including his own Over the Wall). Not only that, he's already done it, and it's an interesting read.

I was pleased to discover that Action City! made it into his folder of games he and his group may play one of these days (which, admittedly, contains about two-thirds of all the submissions). Does this bode well for my chances in Game Chef itself? Well, it doesn't bode poorly, I guess, but other than that one pretty obviously has no bearing on the other. To be honest, it was just gratifying to read someone else's thoughts on Action City!, contest or no. Thanks, Jon(athan)!


  1. No worries. I know half if them made it in, I am thinking of going over them and splitting into what I want to play and what have great ideas.

  2. In that case, please do us both a favor and make your decision based on the revised game instead of the original you downloaded. It's a definite improvement. I finished the original at, like, 4:00 am on the day of the contest deadline.

    Speaking of contest deadlines, where's that other Jonathan, I wonder? Y'know, the one who's supposed to actually be judging this contest?

  3. Will do. I figure that it's just going to make things better and I really liked the game. Again, any game that *requires* an explosion at the end of every act has to be awesome.

    It is a law.
