Hi Christo,


Fun - A would be A+ if you didn't have to wait so much.
Art - A
Sounds - A
Technical - D+ (If this was meant for a CD ROM instead of the Web
this would be a B)

Though the technical score will possibly increase it would take massive
effort to make this technically above average. This is based on several
1) Huge files (each around 1M) are way larger than needed to show
content. Optimization would result in substantually smaller files
without changing visuals at all. The monster size creates needless delay
on the Web and possibly on your server and is bound to limit satisfied
visitors to your site.
2) Not Full Screen, you opened a new window but offset all the rooms to
the right instead of taking advantage of the full screen capability of
Flash. Some of this may relate to use of bitmaps.
3) Doesn't use Load Movie to make transition from one room to the next
seemless. Also the use of Load Movie would allow a library of sound and
visual effects to be made available to later rooms allowing reduction in
file sizes.
4) Use of Input box external to Flash instead of doing it in Flash.
