The Fretta Contest: A philosophical look at the main entries



  • So I’ve decided to make the judges’ lives easier by writing these short reviews.

    Ascension - Incomplete, ugly and boring. Pass.
    Cube 2 - Wow you walk around a map and a 7-line gamemode. Pass.
    Jumpjet CTF - Hey look it’s a remake of a bad game. Pass.
    Bounce Garry Bounce! - You’re a ball and you bounce for 20 minutes. Pass.
    Garry TV - No.
    GarryWare Two - Get out.
    MiniTank Wars - “NOTE: NOT READY FOR SERVER USE” huhuhu
    Zinger! - My golf gamemode is really boring and unoriginal what should I do? Oh I know! I’ll add guns! Pass.
    Arcade Dogfight - Ugly and I’d rather play Teamplay with vehicle pads. However it’s the only decent gamemode so far.
    Cactus - LOL GUYS CACTI
    BattleSource - What?
    Gamemaster - Passmaster. (xd)
    M3 - My gamemode uses 3 colors total.
    USLS - I don’t have a texture maker what should I do? Here I’ll release it with untextured maps and weapons, maybe they won’t notice.
    Suicide Barrel - Already exists.
    Contract Killers - “the aim is to be the last man standing, but with a twist: You can only kill a specified target, attacking anybody else injures yourself” Why?
    PropIt - Pictionary with props. One of the very few interesting ideas, but it’s easily ruinable.
    Tactical Assault - BF2? Check. Bad code? Check. Good gamemode? Nope, sorry.
    Zero Gravity - Says 70% done but it’s probably somewhere around 20% so I wouldn’t bother.
    Laser Tag - I have nothing against recycling, but gamemodes aren’t made of plastic (lol get it). Pass.
    Crash 'n Smash - Sandbox without propspawning or building tools. What?
    FrettaTactics - Slow-paced AS:S. The gameplay video is 20 minutes of him showing the Fretta menus.
    Oh, Balls! - It’s as bad as you think it is.
    Claustrophobia - gMinecraft. Map with a 7-line gamemode. Pass.
    Death from Above - You are so original. Pass.
    Destroy the Core - What’s worse than a UT ripoff? A UT ripoff in 2d, obviously.
    The Stalker - meh
    Bomb Tag - Griefing is fun. That’s it.
    gBirds - Bad and unfinished
    King of the Hill - Too generic. Otherwise, it’s an okay gamemode.
    Poltergeist - We have enough 5-second gamemodes
    Ragdoll DM - Great concept, great code and great sarcasm
    Zombie Onslaught - Better than Mr. Green’s ZS but that’s not saying much
    Dark Skies - Yet another space gamemode, only this one is for Fretta. Pass.
    Bomberminge - Hey look an entry that doesn’t suck
    Flood Control - Overv made it so I won’t even bother looking at the thread
