Review by Atom Bomb Jr.
Biggt has received plenty of praise, as well as a good deal of criticism, for his past series, La La Land. Though the series lacked conventional game play elements, it did have one thing many Game Maker developers skip, and that's substance. The series had, it seemed, meaning. Something that a lot of developers now try to include. With this, it's hard to believe that Uin would possibly come close to living up Biggt's past work.

Right away, you're thrown into a whole new world. With no advice as to what you're doing, you must figure it out for yourself. One thing that is conventional about Uin is the simple controls. Various animals are listed on a menu that begins filled with question marks, and at the end of the game lists a handful of creatures you've driven to extinction. This serves as a unique concept that will try to make the player feel a bit thrown off.

The music is well mixed, and there's plenty of it to enjoy. Uin sports a cool forty minutes of ambient music, suiting the mood of the game. Much like the music, the graphics are playful and disturbing, as well as the plot. The mood is is, in my opinion, the key feature of the game.

No game can be perfect, and Uin has its faults. The game's controls, and general purpose, remain ambiguous throughout the game. This is something that the average gamer will probably be more frustrated than fascinated with. The game seems rough around the edges in places, and the difficulty strays from incredibly simple to incredibly challenging. However, the advice given by the author, “Think outside the box,” remains the best piece of advice possible.

Overall, this game is great, but only for the audience it searches out for. Uin is challenging, entertaining, and, like the La La Land series that came before it, thought provoking. With simple graphics, an extravagant soundtrack, and an ambiguous yet refreshing plot, Biggt's newest release certainly does not disappoint.

Overall, I give Uin a 8/10.

Uh, why did you give your own game a 1? and then say it should be a zero? I think I'll try this game later.
