Thanks for the review of 0xUniverse, as I haven't seen any other reviews about it so far. The German text on the screenshots are a bit hard to read, that doesn't really fit with the English language in the review itself.

I did really like that you are showing your own planet, and continued the review after a day, so we get some more feeling for the gameplay.

Here is my review on World of Ether

I just got a retweet from World of Ether's official Twitter handle, it feels so cool (smiles)

Good review, I like that you put the game it in context and compare it with similar games. A critical tone with good reasoning is always welcome!

You make a nice comparison between human beauty traits, family trees and the appeal of CryptoKitties. Very insightful!

hey @menoski - Love the review! Well presented with images inserted at the right places!

What would have been even cooler, is to see a live battle from your own Axie's and/or an image from your Axie collections.

You mentioned having played many games, how does Axie Infinity compares to the ones you are familiar with?

Anyway, loved it and found it very clear!

·

I would make sure I make use of all you have said to get a better review article next time.

I'm glad you loved it and big thanks for reading it through @ctrlalt

Also thanks for your nice feedback

Good job on getting the first review of this task out. As I mentioned on Discord, you did certainly raise the bar :)

  • The story is a compelling read, which gives me a good feeling for the gameplay of EOS Knights.
  • You have experience writing game reviews, and that shows! Your criticism for the game is well substantiated.
  • The screenshots are not very suitable, you could crop the relevant parts rather than showing fullscreen desktop shows everywhere.
  • The initial title wasn't great and mentioned Oracle-D which is a big no-no per their guidelines, but you have improved it fortunately :)
  • Your post has too many post & unrelated advertisement for my taste.
  • Tweet is lacking flavour, has no text and has too many tags. Your Twitter profile is missing a profile picture :(
  • State of the DApps mention is subtile and fits right into the story.

Thanks for the meta review! I think some of those things I can improve on...

The Twitter related parts, I really have to get more use experience with it. I have the account, but I pretty much never use it, so I'm a bit of a novice with it, but I will definitely put up a profile picture!

Yes, probably I should have cropped the screenshots! It didn't occur to me, as that is how I interact with the game!

Im afraid the change to not mention Oracle-d came after I had published, so unfortunately, I couldn't edit link address, however, I was able to fix up the rest!

He he, you don't like upgoats? They are cute!

.. But thank you for the feedback, it will help improve my writing for the future!

·

Hey @bengy - Great review, lengthy without feeling lengthy. I like that you share some desktop screenshots, but it would have been great to have a closer look at the images.

I have to say that it is very clear, so good job on that. One thing that disappointed me for an informative review was the self-promotional part at the end... Besides that: 😎

·
·

Thanks, I will keep the screenshot idea in mind for next time, I didn't realise they wouldn't zoom easily! I will likely just take photos from my smartphone as that seems to be the easiest way to get better results.

Which part of the self promotion was not so good? The Ledger advert? Or the community banners?

Here's my review on EOS Knights.

https://twitter.com/wizzyblast11/status/1093423037645578240?s=19 I think I earned a retweet from SOTD. will be expecting a review. Thanks.

·

Thanks for your review. It is a pleasure to read, visually well formatted and even your tweet is an eye catcher.

After thinking hard, I only found two things to improve:

  • There are still a couple typos that get distracting, for example frequent use of lowercase “i”. In English, the nominative form of the singular first-person pronoun, "I", is normally capitalized, along with all its contractions (I'll, I'm, etc.).
  • I would like to see more review feedback & critique interwoven with the game play description, as well as some personal flavour. Which character did you pick? Are they well balanced? Is the marketplace intuitive and fairly priced? Are the pets any fun, what is the name of your pet and does it listen when you call it?

Overall, I think you did an excellent job with your review.

Thanks for your article, let me give you my feedback:

  • Nice story, it reads well and has a good introduction, body and conclusion.
  • In game review I want to read positive aspects, as well as criticism, plus your conclusion / recommendation if and why I should play the game. You mentioned some of this in your conclusion, but I’d like to read more of your personal feedback!
  • Good choice of screenshots, they really support the story.
  • Title can be improved, it is a bold claim for an app to be the first, I would be critical in copying that. Tags and category are good.
  • Tweet is okay, a bit too many tags for my taste.
  • State of the DApps mention is subtile and fits right into the story.

Hopefully you can use these points to your advantage in future tasks!

Thanks for your article, let me give you my feedback:

  • Great story, I like how you follow up on your previous review of the game.
  • Unlike many of the other articles for the task, you give a game review and share your opinion! Much appreciated :)
  • State of the DApps is mentioned as an after thought, it could be better embedded in the story.
  • You make compelling Tweets, a bit too many duplicate mentions maybe. No need to use punctuation between tags.

Hopefully you can use these points to your advantage in future tasks!

Thanks for your review of CryptoKitties.

As a little feedback: when you mention the 7 steps showing how the game is played, I'd write your own text to explain in your own words what the steps are. Some screenshots can provide supporting content, but reading the text with the small front size is difficult.

Thanks for your second submission, I can see that you improved your review based on the feedback for your previous submission. Good job :)

You have some typos in your article, for example a space too many or missing. Please review an article carefully before posting it! While an article with typos can still be understood by the reader, it looks less professional and is more distracting to read.

In your conclusing you compare Gods Unchained with Heartstone. I’d love to read more about your comparison with it. How is it different? Which one is better and why, etc? This would make the review more interesting to read.

It is refreshing to read your critical review and description of the problems that you are facing with Dragonereum. While it is very easy to say that a game is “awesome” or “the best”, DApp users and developers will learn nothing from such exaggerated claims. By describing your struggles and pains, you do a great service in showing the current limitations of DApps and the issues that many users like yourself will suffer. For you as reviewer it might be frustrating, but it is very valuable input!

There are some problems with your English, which can be a little distracting to the reader. Maybe you can ask a native speaker for some feedback and improvements? Your story telling is very good and the title of your article is one of the best among all the other dapp gaming reviews, even if it has a little mistake in there (crypto based game). Looking forward to your future work!

Thanks for your monster review on World of Ether. In the article I find way how the game is explained a bit confusing, for example you mention Battle Points, but never really mention that there is a battle component to the game, up until the conclusion. I like the introduction where you mention the various monsters in other popular games.

Axie Infinity

Hi @zebraprint, thanks for reviewing Axie Infinity.

I'd like to learn more what you think about the game in detail. In your conclusion you give some pointers that you like the "building an engine" part of the game, where you grow a stronger and stronger army. But what do you think about the various attributes and chests for example, do they make sense? Are they well balanced?

At the end of your article you link to your other reviews as well, plus you give us a sneak-preview of your upcoming work. I like this very much! However I would only add links to the steem articles there, no need to also link to medium and twitter in your article itself (that is just something for the task comments).

Meta review score: 🍄🍄🍄🍄

Another submission by @zebraprint, you are on a roll!

Please be careful that you get the name of the game correct. It is “Etheremon” not “Ethermon”. This is important because there was a clone dapp (unsure who copied who exactly) called “Ethermon” as well. You have some other typos as well, please review your article carefully before posting!

What I enjoy about your review is the personal story that you tell about your mon Zogi. I think you could really finish your story with a picture of Zogi, that last step is still missing and would really bring the story home.

Made the edit, I do not know why I made this mistake , but it is okey now. I am happy you enjoyed, I will take care for Zogi truly :D

Thanks for your submission, some quick feedback:

  • Per the Oracle-D task rules, it is a big no-no to mention them in the article. I would suggest to watch the requirements video.
  • The task asked to review top 50 games. Infect the World is not a top 50 game, as you noticed nobody plays it. Reviewing old and inactive games has less value that reviewing more recent & popular games. If you have a good reason to deviate from the rules, I’d at least try to clarify it in your article. For example maybe you study virology or you are a big fan of the board game Pandemic.
  • I really like that you call out the missing features that would make this game more appealing to you. Good job!
  • Looking at the transaction statistics, it seems that you didn’t actually play the game. You should clarify this in your review why not. Maybe it was because it is too expensive, or because nobody else is playing it anymore. Both would be interesting points to make and really fit in with your other remarks.
  • Your tweet is okay, but a bit dry. Yes, you published a review, but why should someone read it? I’d try to challenge your Twitter followers with an appealing Tweet that makes them want to read the article.

Meta review score: 🧬🧬🧬

I edited the part with the mentioning oracle-d. I know it is not in top 50 I saw late the requirement that the game has to be in top 50, I did this because it attracted me with its name. Yes I did not made any transaction because it is not worth it, I do not get anything interesting. And I am on my way for making another tweet now. Thank you for suggestions. @mids106 !

·

Thanks for the review. I'd like to read more about what you like about the game (or not). The choice of graphics doesn't really compel me to try the game, and there are some minor markdown issues. You take some good steps towards explaining the potential benefits of a blockchain based game, however do you think that you actually own and control the game assets? What would happen if the website goes down, do you think you could still play it?

I use Indonesia tags because i'm an Indonesian and i'm sure that Indonesian people will read it, a lot of gamers from Indonesia.

For the twitter I thought it refer to the game and I was promoting for the people to search the game using StateOfTheDApps.com
And no there is no big deal. Right?

Thanks for submitting your second article. Some of my feedback is identical to as my feedback on your previous review, but some additions:

  • Good story telling, and an actual review! I like to see how you improved a lot from your previous review on SuperRare, this one is much better.
  • While you have some nice images, I could use some more. You describe very visually “When you start the game, you will always notice the sky city with different buildings where you can interact, this is where your elixir, crystal and so on are being mine from.” so I would love a picture of that.
  • You mention some positive points, but what can be improved in Hyperdragons? What are things that you don’t like? I’d like to read about your critisicm on the dapp as well.

Thanks for your article, let me give you my feedback:

  • The story starts out good, but degrades into a bullet point list of game features.
  • Be careful with the use of empty words such as “revolutionary”.
  • Too short paragraphs: One-two sentences and no flow. This makes it hard to read.
  • In game review I want to read positive aspects, as well as criticism, plus your conclusion / recommendation if and why I should play the game. Which is missing in your article.
  • Okay choice of screenshots, but I would want to see one of an actual fight!
  • Title, category and tags are mostly okay. Why do you tag uganda and wafrica, they don't seem to be relevant to the article?
  • State of the DApps mention is not very subtile and doesn’t fit into the story.
  • Tweet is okay, but lacks Chibi Fighters flavour

Thanks for the final dapp game review on Chibi Fighters.

Oops, you have a little typo in the title, please double check that you have the game name correct! Some parts of the article feel a bit rushed and left unexplored, for example why is it important to me that the game is "ERc721 compliant"? In a review maybe you can elaborate a bit more why you think Chibi Fighters is less attractive than some of the other games.

  • Before tweeting edit the title; no need to add " - Steemit". With too many tags, it will quickly look like spam.

Thanks for your corrections and the new review!

In your article you use a LOT of bullet points, pretty much every paragraph is a bullet point. I would use regular paragraphs instead most of the time. This is friendlier to read, and when you do use a bullet point list it will make more impact, as you haven't overused it.

  • The screenshots are well chosen, although a bit over-compressed. Look into JPEG compression to see how you can improve that in the future.
  • State of the DApps doesn't perfectly fit in the story, it is more added as an afterthought.
