Waldo's Rating 6.1/10

6.1out of 10

I came across Squashy Bug when a friend sent it to me because it reminded them of a new game I am working on called Mr. Postman. Basically a side to side game where you collect objects and deliver them to a location. I found this game to not only be a fun game to play for a few hours, but also helpful insipiration for the style of game play I would like to see my game have. Getting the right physics can sometimes be difficult, but this game offers smooth controls and easy navigation between ever crushing feet above you.

User Interface Design (UI)
User interface is flawless.
User Experience Design (UX)
Game factored some but not all of the following: simple to use navigation, engaging layout, priority-based design, clear use of icons, internationality / language barriers.
Game Design
Game is really well designed, but doesn't offer enough variations. It get boring visually very quick.
Learning Curve
The tutorial in the beginning breaks down the entire gameplay in under 15 seconds.
Difficulty Progression
Game difficulty progressed to a certain point but then became either too easy or too difficult.
Playtime Longevity
It is a game that you will want to play for a week, but nothing more.

Music and/or sound effects fit the theme, but did not add value to the game.
Fun enough to make you play for hours even when you have other responsibilities or things you should be doing.
Concept Originality
Uses an unoriginal or already seen before concept.
Post Production
Post production contains a well written description, screenshots, video and icon design.
