Topic: Neverputt Suggestions
I am only here because I think Neverputt is perhaps the best small game I've played. I especially enjoy it because it is perfect for an 80 year old to maintain hand eye coordination. and because it does not include any violence. It could be better though.
1. Any level of play included should be achievable. There are holes which are quite impossible. The inclusions of these types is pointless. It should be possible to successfully complete any hole design. When it becomes apparent that a hole is impossible the value of continued trying is removed. No challenge. No fun.
2. To make the game more interesting the holes should be moved from time to time, just slightly, so that memorization of technique is less profitable. Just small hole moves would add to the enjoyment.
3. I do not care for the fact that on a particular hole that I have a problem with I have to wait until a new game to try again. I would like to have instant replay of any hole at any time. This would make it more interesting and fun. Mind you I do not refer to the multi player mode wherein you can have up to four players. This is NOT the same thing. I would like a single player to have as many attempts at any one hole as desired. This would help to achieve a personal best.
The most important consideration though is the elimination of holes that cannot be , even accidentally, played successfully. There is no fun in trying for the impossible.
Neverball is also a good game but it would be easier for me if I could slow the action down a bit. It's OK for kids as it is but not for we oldies.
