Anonymous said...

Clear! On;y one method.

Bart said...

Haha well I'm just messing around a bit with the layout and colors, so there's no way back now :) All suggestions are welcome!

Anonymous said...

Yeh, do like the new design, Bart.

Anonymous said...

I don't really like the new colors.. too much contrast i think. Maybe take a bigger font, the text is really small on my screen, more and more people get bigger resolutions :)

New layout looks good Bart.

I'd like to know what or where the little boy was transfered!

noga said...

noga said...

Isa said...

Love the new site design and color scheme!

Nice new design. :)

Nice puzzle; minoto makes them weirder every time.

De kleuren passen goed bij je nieuwe spel Bart. Maar voor een hele pagina vind ik de contrasten te groot en te onrustig. Bij witte letters op zwart wil ik eigenlijk gelijk afhaken. Misschien kun je de rechterkant van het scherm wat lichter maken.

vitty said...

Complimenti per il nuovo design Bart. E' molto bello e colorato,allegro.
:))

Bart said...

Ok, well back to whitish background instead of black. Wasn't that satisfied with the black, the search continues ...

Anonymous said...

This scheme is better than the black one :o) it was difficult to read the small letters.

Lichen Fairy said...

Oh my gosh, I played this one in japanese earlier today lol!

Good luck with the new design. I'll miss the dogs though.

:)

Nevermore said...

WOW!
Now THAT was a weird one!
The half-shrimp lady flings the boy from juice pool into parts unknown.

Thijs said...

New layout is great.

Anyone else surprised that Minoto's not a female?

Anonymous said...

HELP all i have is the Radio control someone piz help @.@

SAMARA said...

Bart, congratulations! the novelty always makes people feel strange, but your new layout is great! by the way, i didnt receive my bucky balls :(

Lichen Fairy said...

I usually end up thinking everyone's a guy unless they've got an absurdly girly name (like mylittlepony lover or something silly to that effect).

And I'm sorry if I've offended any lovers of My Little Pony, it's just that after I saw littlekuriboh's version of the movie I can't take it seriously anymore. (I still like flutter valley though!)

@anonymous: look behind the cat and use the string on the spinning-top.

Bobette said...

This is a good game! The mermaid is without a top, did anyone else notice that? BTW, Bart, not real big on the format, liked the old one. :)

Bart said...

well I'm not entirely satisfied on the new layout as well, so you might see it change now and then in the days to come :)

@samara: you were one of the winners? I did send all the winners addresses to the bucky balls people. Please mail me at bontegames@gmail.com

Ann Quark said...

About the layout, maybe, instead of the navy blue color, something more green ? Or navy and green ? :)

Ann Quark said...

Well, now, to my mind, it is a bit too blue...

stratoslover said...

LOL! Loved the hole apple-newton-gravitasion-thing!

Anonymous said...

writing is way too big

NotMarian said...

Yay! I got my Minoto fix. I was going thru withdrawl.

shmans said...

Bart, I would make the dates a different color to make them stand out more - maybe dark green? They tend to blend in too much with the rest of the writing.

AJ said...

Hi Bart,

Congratulations on the new look! It's fresh and looks great. On a side note, careful of the amount of red and green because of people who are colourblind.

Keep up the brilliant work! Thanks for all your effort.

Anonymous said...

What black background?I don't remember that.I"d like it though!On my laptop,I have a black background with bright green font!!!The blue is ok,but if you keep changing it alot,that would be welcome,too!!As always,your work is terrific.THANKS!

Brownie said...

Brownie said...

Please how do you get apple juice ?

Alialialia said...

Apple juice? Use Newton's law to get the apple then juice it in the juicer.

I think the newest layout is a bit dull now tbh.

Megan said...

any more specific help on getting the apple down? I gave the ticket to the match girl, the geese ran the race, and I'm stuck.

Megan said...

aha! never mind, I got it!

qwerty said...

nobody wants the apple juice,
i dont know what to do with it.

qwerty said...

oh wow ok i didnt know a glass of juice can fill a pool.

qwerty said...

Help End
The juice of the pool was drunk.
The drowned boy was helped by The Little Mermaid.
Power was too large.
The boy was transferred somewhere.

yay done

JAYPEE said...

mwahahaha, Minoto's games are just too funny! :)

Bart, you COULD actually have a thread just discussing your new layout! :D A lot of opinions...

Regardless, it's a good page, keep it up!

Anonymous said...

I think this black-grey-white is too simple...

Anonymous said...

HELP!!!!!! the geese have run the race and im now stuck! i cant get that apple out the tree!!!

Anonymous said...

drop the weight by the tree and the apple will fall off.

Anonymous said...

PLEASE HELP!!! IM STILL STUCK!!! ITS me from the comment before...


HHHEEELLLLLPPPPPPPPPP!!!! how do u get the apple down and the goose to stop jumping about like a looney??? lol- Bart can u help me as no one else will??? thanks x

Anonymous said...

What weight??????? i dont see a weight!

R.F x

Bart said...

Well the layout is still not final, so expect to see it change a couple more times probably :)
Keep on doing suggestions!

noni mouse said...

there is a weight in the cupboard in the kitchen. the 3 dots above the cupboard need to be in the color order that the geese are in after the race. then the door will open. take the weight and drop it by the tree. the apple will fall to the ground. place the apple in the juicer and make juice.

Carly said...

Hey Bart!

My favorite bit about the new design is your picture ;) Finally I can put a face to the name that seems so familiar by now. And you are cute, too! :)

Not quite too happy with the black headlines of the games. But as you said, it's a work in progress... :)

JAYPEE said...

You hit it right on the head Carly! I couldn't put my finger on it but it IS the black headlines... Too much contrast.

I think if they matched the grey color of the games blog headline that would be better. Maybe make the games blog headline could be a shade darker to set it apart?

Last suggestion, what about a very translucent background pattern?

Marte said...

Haha, cool game. I love minoto! :D I always look forward to the next one at once after I'm done with one.

Anyways.. I like the new layout! I love this website! Keep it ut Bart ; )

Alialialia (used to write on here as Miss Piggy) said...

Or more use of the main characters of your games, such as the dog and the penguin.

Bobette said...

Alialialia- I liked the Ms. Piggy thing! Oh, well. BTW Bart, the layout looks okay, a bit dull, but I think it's fine. :)

Giovana said...

I was feeling a little sick today, but a Minoto game always cheers me up.
