|What is your rating for Atelier 801 and its games|
transformice - 100%, i love tfm~~
run for cheese - 90%, good game! i like playing it during long travels.
nekodancer - 30%, i dont like the difficulty (for me, at least), but i like the fact it's multi-player just dance cat furry edition.
bouboum - 60%, i like the game, and that the "furs" are more of different species of animals instead of how the furs in tfm are. it's a good game, but kinda difficult.
fortresse - 80% - i looooove this game, but not as good as tfm.
transformice: 45%. its not a bad game but i dont like it nearly as much as i used to. not to mention every update feels like a downgrade. although, i could be heavily biased to 2010-2012 tfm, as i noticed theres still plenty of people that love the game today. i dunno.
nekodancer: 70%. i want to love this game more, but not many people play it and its hardly updated. sad really.
fortoresse and bouboum: never played.
Transformice- 90% TFM is my most favorite game on atelier but i get bored sometimes.. but its still great and it gets addicting :3.
Bouboum - 70% i like it but it gets boring plus i hardly see people playing it :T.
Nekodancer- 50% its OK
Forteresse- i never played it sorry >_>.
So ill give it a 80%.

Transformice I give 50%. The game can be fun but I get bored of it very quickly and it can be very repetitve. Also, nothing new is being added to the game and everything that is "new" isn't creative. Events are bascially the same every year and For a while the furs weren't creative, like the vampire, chef, the furs with costumes.
I've played the game for the long time so I'm probably just getting bored of it

I really like both Transformice and Nekodancer but I don't really play the other games. But for those two I have given 70%. It would be higher but Nekodancer has many bugs and overall just feels abandoned or left to rot (I still like to play it). Especially when you compare it to TFM seeing that Nekodancer still only has the same costumes form 2015 (I think) just to name one example.
Since Transformice is the only game I play from A801 I will go with that one. And it is a 70%. The overall game is really fun and hard to stop playing but what makes me "meh" is the lack of updates. Yes, they add new shop items and events every 1 or 2 months but there is more than just that. What I would like to see is a update to editor since the last thing they did to it was back in 2013-14
Generally I too, like most others here, play only Transformice out of all the games that Atelier801 has created, and personally I think it's about a 70%.
throws long explanation in face
First of all, let me get it clear. 7/10 is not a bad score, it's not a score that's only applied to failures! People think that only games with some score like 8/10 would be a game good enough to play, but damn it, it's only a number, and plus most ratings are biased, or at least more weighted on opinion. To be a good critic is to be able to balance opinion and facts, and that's what I'm trying to do here.
disclaimer: I'm not a real critic and I can't really compare this to any other game out there since I'm not a gamer. But this is all based on my sight and how I see it as a game by itself. I tried to look at every aspect of the game and judge it fairly based on facts so correct me if I'm wrong.
As a game, Transformice is actually pretty well developed whether you like it or not. People complain about all the bugs and how everything might be laggy and undeveloped, but in reality we all (and yes, that does include me) take it for granted that, even with bad internet, the physics of the game and the way characters and objects are able to move clearly without any interruption (with the exception of lag) are pretty on point. Transformice is a unique platforming game in where you're able to interact with grounds as never before.
It's not only that characteristic that makes it deserve its score game, but all the hours and days of programming and drawing the features that we all have used (at some point or another) have almost gone overlooked. Of course, all games have this and I do respect all those too. But, while so many people request most new items to be made, the older ones are forgotten. For art, I'm not only referring to the shop accessories and furs because that's where the Outfit Squad steps in; I'm also talking about all the backgrounds or wallpapers drawn for each event. I mean, sure, events come out like . . . every 2 months at this rate? But still, you gotta appreciate the artwork.
All the good aspects of this game are always taken for granted and that's what disappoints me.
Also don't forget that not a P2W (pay to win) game. Paying is optional; if you wanna use your real money on the game, it's just to make your pixels prettier. Kind of the raw truth when you think about it.
However, of course, there are things that don't exactly appeal to me about the game, one of them being, of course, the apparent lack of activity that TFM staff (specifically the admins and EN mods though) seem to have. I'm a bit hesitant to talk about this subject, since it's already been said countless of times everywhere in the community, but I need to admit that I still do have respect for them, especially because being a notable character in the community and development of a public and popular-ish game like this makes your life EXTREMELY busy. A lot of EN/E2 mods have their lives going on and it's hard to keep up with all the reports and etc., especially with those servers being the most played.
As for admins, well. They do a LOT of behind-the-scenes work, mainly just trying to program and design the game, and the thing that probably takes a big chunk of their time is the reports from the contact form. And despite this, I also kind of feel a bit uncertain about their work and pacing, because traditionally, they take a while to see some of the suggestions and bug reports on the forums (like the noticeable throwable glitch I reported in February and how it's still not fixed). I've also come to see that they're starting to make events longer and releases longer, which is kind of bewildering to me because generally in the summer there's usually more players because of the absence of school or, even in some cases, work. Sure, these events take a lot more effort to make and I still appreciate them as an event. But eh. A lot of players end up literally finishing the event in the first week and then they have to go through the process of waiting for the event to end. Plus, it's less variety to gameplay.
Speaking about variety to gameplay . . . really, there is none, and that's the problem with Transformice. It's not something that can really be fixed, either. Transformice is a simple mouse-platformer game with quite a few different game modes (including module) so it's natural to get bored within a few hours or so. The problem with this is that it gets hard for players to be attached to the game unless they have something extremely specific that they want to do, or if they're just an achievement hunter (--and Transformice's title system is admirable in that way, since achieving titles provides a sort of satisfaction for playing). Any other reason that people stay is the community, and yes that does include the Cafe (which is also a pretty admirable part of Transformice even though I still have a bit of distaste for it).
i am just on a roll with these transitions today ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ
I can't say much about the community because
1) We ARE the community.
2) Everyone knows what it's like, unless they've only spent approximately 5 seconds in-game or the first room they went to was smpty/silent.
3) No one but us can control the community, and there's a lot of us.
Even being a simple, ordinary, and innocent mouse game attracts a lot of inappropriate players and behaviors, mostly because of the freedom of typing whatever they want without caring much about consequences. Unless the admins implement a chat filter or something of the kind, which I assure you they would never, it will always be like this. After all, there's always a dark side to a community in an MMO game.
Overall, I still think that Transformice isn't a bad game! It's still cute in its own style and though it obviously has its flaws, it's definitely not the only one. It's already pretty popular from its own perspective, and overall as a game it's actually one of my favorites, coming close to being addictive if life weren't in the way most of the time. I've definitely met some memorable friends through it.
please don't ask me to make a post like this for the other games
not only am i not really interested in those games, but i dont feel like making a mini-essay rant for a while now
It's how I've come to understand review scores.
Was it a mistake posting this?
