Years ago, I wrote down, but never posted this little post because I wanted to add more Newgrounds users to the list, but whatever. I made a short list of game creators who I think new medal earners on Newgrounds should check out if they’re looking for fast medals.
Selfdefiant has created a number of escape games that have medals, with each of the games having about 180 medal points (at least, his older games do. He doesn’t release as many games and medals as he used to). The games are relatively easy once you get used to his (or her, I don’t want to assume even though I already did) puzzle making formula and they’re pretty fun as well and usually make me feel accomplished after having beaten them. Another added benefit, the creator has made walkthrough videos for all his/her games!
Gamezhero has a large variety of games, from platformers to physics games to find the difference games to escape games among many others. Admittedly, a number of their games are very easy, very similar, and many of the highest earning medals revolve around gathering three stars in every level, but there’s still a lot of gems to be found among them. Their collection of games offers some of the highest amounts of medal points than you’d find in most games.
A maker of humorous, crude graphic Stencyl games, he includes medals on nearly all of his games. Often times, he offers a lot of medals, especially in his famous paintings series, but this balances out since the medals are usually worth 5 points each. The games themselves are sometimes corny, but his pictures will probably make you laugh so they’re worth a play.
If you like visual novels games and WarioWare type challenges, try checking out JackAstral. A lot of his stories intertwine and, despite the silliness present in many of them, are very serious and will draw you in. Much like Munguia, most of the medals are worth 5 points except for the golden rocket medals, which are usually 50 points.
These are some other notable Newgrounds users to check out for content and medals:
The fact that Tom Fulp is last on the list is not a reflection of my opinion of him, even though they say you should save the best for last.
