I'll review it later. However, it won't be 8/8, I can assure you. ;)
If you're really that anxious for a rating, look in the spoilers be-
low. It only contains a rating, not my review, mind you. I don't
have time to write that at the moment.

Rating: 7/8


Also, no. You're spam doesn't annoy me much. (But Chimto would
probs be annoyed if he were online. :P )

I'm sure others are, but he just happens to be vocal about so that nobody has to be. :)

7/8 = 87.5%. You got a B from Ninja. :P

Yes, a B is what I intended to give. Not many things are perfect. :ugeek:

Jesus, 87.5% is a B? I know that probably accounts an A here, but even in maths, the only subject to actually be giving us actual grade-mark mark schemes an A*, the highest grade, is 85%.

For instance, I got 81% iin my end of term biology test and got an A*. English is a special case because we have controlled assessments, but 57/80 is usually enough for an A* grade.

For us, (Ninja, BBB, and I) that's awesome. The only way that ever happens is if a test is curved by the teacher.

57/80=A*

It's a looooooooong story. My year is the last year to have proper English Controlled Assessments. Each of these controlled assessments have a maximum number of marks, but not all are equal, for instance the one of Macbeth is far larger than the descriptive writing.

Now, those marks you get in the CAs go into an equation, and when they pop out, you find out how many marks you need to get in the paper to achieve an A* grade. I need roughly 56 because I blitzed those CAs, so while 57/80 may be an a* grade on the paper, you have to factor in CAs

And the thing is, this isn't like a maths test where you can get up to 90/95 or even 100%, this paper is difficult because of its nature and the time management. You have six questions, the first three questions are worth 8 marks, then next two worth 16, and question 6 worth 24 marks. We are urged to do question 5&6 first as they are worth the most marks, then move on to the others. 5&6 are relatively simple descriptive/persuasive/explanative writing tasks, but 1-4 is analysis of texts.

Said texts are the tipping point, our teacher pulled some strings and got us a new past paper, as we had used all the available ones, it was from Northern Ireland and was bloody tough. The three sources (1-Q1, 2-Q2, 3-Q3 and 4-Q3 and 1 or 2) were sparse, with the closest thing to literary techniques in them being a semantic field- when the writer talks a lot about one subject and starts using terminology from it. Because said texts were so difficult, we all faltered once we got to Q4 onwards and the grade boundaries were low. I did fine and got about 51, which was an A if I remember, it could have been an A* (favouring in my controlled assessments). My buddy is great at English, but struggled with the texts. He missed out one question completely but still got an A, simply because he did good in his CAs and blitzed Q6-4

Whoa, that is long. Maybe a PM would've been better? ;) As Aeris would say, "BOT".

Indeed.

BTW, does anyone know the max amount of characters in a post?

Maybe American scores are considered so much lower than in other countries because we're graded so harshly?

Alright, Aeris, I have some bad news for you. I think you have some creative ideas and that this campaign is turning out seemingly nicely, but it's too hard to tell for sure. With so many enemies, towers, upgrades, spells, God powers, heroes and questions raised by all of those things, I can't keep track of them all. Great games make sure that their elements have cohesion, working with each other rather than clashing. I can't tell you whether or not your game has this because I can't keep track of all of the elements and how they work with each other. This is the same reason why all of the research I need to do (to fulfil my nonexistent obligations to make Chimto's hero) has delayed me for months, I want to make sure it's really good but there's too much to read and then remember. Sorry, but it's either a proper review or no review at all.

The max character limit is 240,000.

Proper review... Does that mean when all the elements are organized?
I planned for that and some menu screen updates to be next.

A proper review would let you know everything you did wrong and all of the major things you did right. I wouldn't be able to tell you all of that because there's too much to keep in mind when analysing the effects of each new thing you add. It's not that the thread is disorganised, the problem is that there's just too much content to continue to remember and how they influence each other.

Ahh...
I see.

I assume some of the "problem" areas include the fact that there are 3 different campaigns.
Perhaps I should repost each of the campaigns and their pieces into separate threads, and then flesh those out?

Well, it is rather hard to keep everything in mind when reviewing.
Separating the campaigns into their own threads would probably
be best. 3 campaigns is very difficult to think about at once.

Now that the campaigns are separate, any thoughts on them?

So, are you still going to update this thread sometimes?
It's sad to see such a beautiful thread go to waste. :(

Kind of...
I'll update the tower guessing screen (which now has some letters, so pls go and guess), as well as the Gnome Shop.
