CHAIRCHAIR– Not sure if want


CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR– Shutupandtakemymonies


Makes with the working


  • You lose a chair for every day your game was available for sale in a non-playable state.



  • Unity pop-up, minus 1 chair!
  • If you’re not going to commit and take your game seriously, I can’t commit to giving you a proper score.



Shiny / Sounds


  • One soundtrack with no option to disable it. Right.
  • Dear FSM what noise does that thing make when hit?
  • I haven’t heard anything that disturbing since we picked up the sex swing for the office.
  • So, much, screen tearing.
  • I can hear my 980 begging to have a go but nope.
  • It’s locked at 60 FERPS.



  • It was loud! And the music isn’t even that great!




  • Unity popup screen of NOPE? Minus two chairs.
  • While the controls are mapped to the Xclone controlla they are mapped in such a way that makes it unplayable.
  • And anyone who claims they can sort that moon-glyph Unity config is a damn liar.
  • Using the keyboard + gerbil “worked” but the input sluggishness would make Superman 64 blush.
  • Just for shites and giggles you’re unable to set the sensitivity.
  • Then we have the physics. In what universe does a character accelerate at the end of their jump?
  • I could live with that but the FKN thing looses gerbil focus if you Shift+Tab in windowed mode making it wholly unplayable.
  • Try to quit the game using your gerbil. I FKN dare you.


  • The controls, while ass-stupid, are manageable.
  • Real tempted to give it one chair though.


  • It’s a platformer and the controls are floaty as all fuck
  • Like Venn said, physics don’t work that way.
  • Here’s the kicker, 50 minutes into the game and the spacebar stopped being recognized.
    • I thought it may have been my keyboard but it was still working outside of the game.
    • So I tried reassigning it to another key. Wouldn’t recognize it either.
    • I tried removing the config files and reinstalling the game. No dice.
  • So I lost the ability to make to my character jump on a platformer.
  • *golf clap* That takes a special kind of busted to pull off!




  • I get you are trying to make Sonic on a budget with a grappling mechanic.
  • Thing is, Sonic (even on the Genesis) conveyed a sense of speed.
  • This? The little guy is hunched down like he is ready to skull FK the sound barrier but moves at the speed of smell.
  • What’s the story? Who am I? WHAT am I? Why do I care about the running and the jumping.
  • Oh right, I don’t.
  • And where the hell do you get “Slinki is a hard-as-nails 2.5D action-platformer” from?
  • What are nails made if in space Porto? Mayonnaise?


  • This is very clearly a first attempt at a game
  • The platforming is stale, the gimmick is done and I’m really not having any fun.
  • You wasted an hour of my life and I want it back


  • My first Portuguese Unity game.
  • If I wasn’t so jaded about bad Unity games I might even have considered some leniency, on accounts of them being Portuguese and everything.
  • Unfortunately, I’m far too jaded on that department.


Final –CHAIR


  • You could have sold a few copies on Linux but you half arsed it, Brad. You did, yes you did!
  • This is the first trickle of “Unity Personal Edition” games that will soon flood Steam.
