Ask a Wombat! 074

Bemused asks about “Fi da Booty Samurai“. . .

I know a pure texture mod cannot be everything, but if you ever get a chance to implement the main character’s outfit adjustments to be delayed somehow (perhaps in the form of clothing damage), that would fit the game’s premise.

(Also, the sixth version of uabea has not been popping up anything for the renaming of resources.assets but presumably you knew that already…)

Commonly Asked Questions​

How are games scored?

I rate software using up to five guidelines; “gameplay”, “sexual content”, “story”, “sound” and “visuals”. Each of these guidelines are divided into smaller sub-guidelines, which differ between genre and availability.

For example, I typically have more to say about “story” when I’m analyzing a visual novel than I do when writing about puzzle game.

I rate each category on a scale of “one” to “five”; a “one” is really bad, a “two” is “meh”, a “three” is average, a “four” is good, and a “five” is exceptional. The final score (or “verdict”) is an average of all guidelines.

Why is this game rated "X" but not this one?

Scores mean different things for different genres.

I don’t consider a “5/5” puzzle game to be a better game than say, a first-person shooter. In my opinion, it’s unfair to rate all software equally. What makes a puzzle game fun won’t apply to any other genre. 

In an effort to maintain an objective stance when I publish ratings, I only compare like-games when I deliberate scores.

I wouldn’t rate an RPG poorly because a visual novel I played doesn’t feature “grinding”.

Will you review "X"?

If you’re a developer on Steam, send your game to the Wombat Trap Curator.

Otherwise, use the following contact form to get in touch or send suggestions. I’ll get to them when I get to them.
