Swords and Sandals 3:Solo Swords and Sandals 3:Solo

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Tonight, on sixty minutes...

I haven't played the other Swords and Sandals game, but I figured I'd give this a try and found I really enjoyed it. I'm not usually one for these kind of games, but this had a good amount of variety, even for a demo.

Which brings me to my next point...It really grinds my gears when I see an extreme, over-the-top negative reaction from some users towards great developers who want to be able to make enough money to eat and pay the bills. Fun fact - it seems that everyone who left a bad review for that reason has never themselves contributed anything to this site.

I'm a developer too (granted, nowhere near your standard!) and I do find it funny when some users get pissy about the fact that we have the audacity to put an ad in a game, or put a link to another version on our own sites, or in your case upload a very comprehensive demo which could well be a full game in it's own right.
I realise it's a very small minority of users (probably very young angry kids who have no understanding of money or the real world), but it is still quite annoying and insulting to developers.

Anyways, rant over...Awesome game :)

Cheers mate, I feel your pain ! Appreciate the review. Yeah you hit the nail on the head, the only people who seem to flame these kinds of games have never developed anything in their life. I figure though most of them are just kids, so just take it with a grain of salt ;)

Familiar...

This seems strangely familiar - http://gotoandplay.it/_articles/2006/

In fact, from the look of it all you did was add a 'gun'. This would have been worth a 1/10 if you would have at least recognised the original developer.
