No dave2 = No ASCII Maker Collection
So I'd feel guilty not giving this a 5.
Guy Maker is MUCH better than my game! So it deserves a damn 5 out of 5!Hah!
THX for the inspiration,dave2.
This is an alrightish game. We basically used this when we made our guy and girl maker for comic relief. (Coming soon).
Karrde is a confirmed LADS OF THE SEA fan. <:(
This engine of dave2's amused me, and to tell the truth its quality surpasses ASCII Maker to such a great degree, even if it was a ripoff it'd be wholly irrelevant.
Certainly not a Pynball-quality engine, though, and because it's not really very developed I give it a two and a half!
To tell you the truth, I was unaware of this dave2 fellow until this plucky young chappie approached me on the streets of London town with a propostion I shall never forget.
"Shine ya shoes please guv'nor?"
It was at this point I realised ZZT would never be the same again. I promptly took him into my household and presented him with a computation device that would be able to sustain his enormous creative impulses indefinetly. Once hooked up to this "Computational God/Machine" he began to produce things the likes of which had never been seen before!
It is good to see that this has been released to the decent public with the purpose of increasing the splendour and glory of the British empire, may she reign over the uneducated fool indefinetly.
The way this game dealt with the allocation of personality struck me as a profound way of interpreting how we define both ourselves and others in society, indeed many of my psychologist friends have suggester a nobel prize should be in order for a thing which in essence capture the spirit of human identity. The three progressive levels evidently point to stages of evolution in society, as glamour becomes more apparent, and style surpasses utility as a major characteristic.
Dave2, I salute you in your endeavour to better the human race, nay, the universe.
Obviously, you do not understand the history of this game. Dave2 has always had a passion for creating things, just like his creation station in pynball. The guymaker is a classic, and it came out WAY BEFORE ascii maker did. I support original things like this in ZZT with a whole heart, and thus, I give dave2 a 3.5.
This game makes me sneeze... RIPOFF Excuse me!
Nothing much you go around making a 'person' it asks if you want a fat head, skinny head, etc. This game is pretty much like Anarchy's 'Ascii Maker collection'. You make a guy but whats the point?
