Ok, I’m going to try the more ordinary review format again this time.

INTRODUCTION TO HIT JAZZS HEAD: This seems to be a seperate application, presumably intended to be a game. It’s probably made by this program people call “Game maker”, as I think I’ve seen that loading bar before.

GAMEPLAY: Uhhh. Four Jazz Heads (the lives symbol from JJ2) bounce around the screen. You click on the heads. If you do it right, your score goes up by one, and the head repositions itself. There is no way to lose score, nor go to a more difficult level (I assume… I gave up after 50), nor make any advancement at all. After about ten seconds, you will start to wonder “just why am I doing this?” and you probably won’t come up with some sort of answer. This game is brilliantly pointless, but that’s about all it’s brilliant in.
Pros: Everything seems to work.
Cons: Nothing seems to happen.
Rating: 4.0

ORIGINALITY: When reviewing the originality of a seperate application (a game, in this case), I suppose one should compare it to other apps/games of the same nature. I can’t find any. Still, juding by the complete lack of… well, anything, I’m going to guess originality is rather low.
Rating: 2.2

EYECANDY/GRAPHICS/APPEARANCE: The bouncing things are Jazz’s JJ2 life head. The background is an apparently unedited screenshot of Psych (Night, I think.. for some reason there are those parallexing star things which look somewhat out of place), and the window has a border of what are either ten second drawn pyramids or ripped from Commander Keen, it’s hard to say. One wonders, with all the other graphics from JJ2, why not simply have a more graphically familiar border? Shrugs
Pros: No obvious visual errors.
Cons: The border is ugly, nothing is all that new.
Rating: 5.0

REPLAY VALUE/FUN FACTOR/ENJOYABILITY: After a few seconds, this game quickly loses interest. Sorry.
Rating: 2.0

OVERALL/VERDICT/SUMMARY/BREAKDOWN/FISH: This program isn’t really worth the space it takes up… which brings up a rather annoying point. Why in the world is this simple program 1,654 KB? I understand you use some graphics, but really, this is ridiculous! …sorry. Off on a tangent there. Anyway, you probably shouldn’t download this. Wait until the author improves or decides to upload something which isn’t quite so simple. (In fact, what with the simplicity and the filesize, I rather worry this was a virus in disguise)
Pros: Everything seems to work.
Cons: Rather boring, nothing can really change, the “automatic repositioning” looks weird.
Rating: 3.2

(In other news, I seem to be a Ultra L33t Reviewer. Hmmmm.)[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]

This is a modification of the “Hit the Ball” example game that comes with Game Maker 4. Be sure to state that in the “other authors” section or description.

OK, I set my score to 10 and it’s time to rate.

First, it is a mod of “Hit the Ball” in GameMaker 4. (takes off 5 here) The bg is good, (6) but the border is still ugly. (-2) (6-2=4) and nothing new has been added. (4-2=2) After all this is just a hack, so I suggest you make your own games instead of making modifications. My final rating is 2.
