MBMedia saidThanks, In fact, that’s what I’m working on now(the ‘Home’ frame for the game). Consedering the second problem, I found a solution for it & thought it’d be useful to let you know about it. http://board.flashkit.com/board/showthread.php?threadid=761063
But on the real topic: It was fun, and if a reviewer does reject it then I’d hope they’d give feedback as to why so that you could do what you need to get it to any standards they feel it didn’t live up to, so don’t be too worried about rejection, it’s not that bad, we’ve all had it and it helps us.
The biggest feedback I’d give you is to add instructions within the game swf itself, such as an intro screen to start playing, with a quick instructional animation before they actually start, explaining exactly how to play, how the points work, all that good stuff someone may want to know. I say that because I didn’t really read your “how to play” part of the post (trust me, that’s the norm, you gotta force feed instructions to people :P) And at first I was a bit clueless and had to come back and read it then go back to the game and play. Would definitely increase buyers if it was more of a complete package where the game itself could teach the player how to play it, that makes it useful to more people in more situations. And on a side note, having an intro/introduction screen also helps with getting keyboard focus to the flash, since by nature it will involve the user clicking within the swf, making sure it has keyboard focus before they are playing, it’s the most bullet-proof way to get keyboard focus when a game needs it like yours doesSecond: When I first clicked to give flash keyboard focus, I clicked the S block itself, and I noticed the next round I had to click again before it would recognize my keystrokes. I did it a few times and it happened each time I tried it that way. Might want to track that down so it doesn’t confuse anyone.

from what i have seen the game sucks period
If you’re going to post such a bold and offensive statement without any nuance or feedback, you better not post at all. I’m not even kidding. Also, there’s a nifty little key on your keyboard that keeps you from having to write the word period fully – it’s right next to the questionmark, usually.
