Lgdb news: The new look

Oh, you're quick. Looks a lot better now. :)

Btw, the (long) Wormux link in the news looks alright in Firefox, so I guess it's just my (Windows) browser K-meleon that apparently can't do line breaks in long links. Yet..

Lgdb news: The new look

Glad you like it, and yes, the users that play a game are new on the game page,
Thanks for your ideas. I implemented your first suggestion, looks quite nice.

Lgdb news: The new look

First of all, I generally like the new look, especially the new logo (although I'm also glad that you've kept the background image of the old banner around - it demonstrates that Linux games can actually look good). It's also nice that you can see the list of players on the game page itself instead of clicking [Game]->Players all the time. Or maybe it was there all the time and I didn't notice...

And now the [i]criticism[/i]! ;)

The front page looks rather crammed now. I think the poll should be placed on the left side - maybe between "Popular games" and "Recent Comments"? That would give "LGDB for players" and "LGDB for developers" a little more room (-> look less crammed).

The Wormux link in the Game news is too long for the small column and sort of spills over to the Space Cubes Descent news - I guess you'll need to keep the link names short for that layout. Having more width for each news item may be nice but I can't come up with a better idea on presenting the news. You [i]could[/i] mash them all together and label each news item "Game news", "Game update", etc. but I'd prefer to see latest news/update/addition at a glance and not scroll through a lot of other stuff until I can spot (e.g.) the latest game addition.

So I guess it's ok to keep it the way it is now. Unless you feel the need to write something like [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious]Supercal... any news text should fit in. ;)

Hope I didn't sound too negative - I'm just tossing around ideas...

Whew.. Good to know that I'm not the only one who thinks the later levels are too hard. ;)

However, the game is [i]great[/i], very polished and funny. Give it a try if you haven't already. ^^

Simple logical game. I liked it untill I got halfway through the game. After that levels got too hard, I got irritated by the fact I could not find any solution for them.

Still, its a nice game.

Game: Teeworlds

Just imagine Quake3 in 2D and cartoon graphics and you have TeeWorlds ( formerly TeeWars ). Nice action-packed game with various game modes ( Free for all, Capture Flag, Instagib ), deadly weapons and grapling hook.

There is no single player in the game, you have to connect to online servers to play. Servers are very reliable, usually full of players. You can play at same server with players running TeeWorlds on Windows.

Game is moddable.

Game: LBreakout2

Breakout with comfortable gameplay and nice graphics.
I'm just addicted to it somehow. I play it on and on for few months now. It has nice feature that you can end at any point of game, and you can continue later on from the last played level.

boink. Love it.
