Wow, I finally stopped.
At the beginning, it was nice.
I got so far into the game that lag became the major killing factor. I had to set the quality to low, and even then, mobs of enemies as well as laggy control lead to slipping off platforms and running into bullets. This game also pissed me off. Good job. No idea what level I'm on.. but I start out with 8 lives
Also, the golden ice creams can go fuck themselves using their sharp asses. Cheap bastards.
I love Tyrian, and this was pretty good as well
Great effort, I can see a lot of work put into this that some people don't realize. I've felt the similarities to toe retro shmups, as well as many differences. Not that this is necessarily bad, I'm just pointing that out. The graphics I was hoping to be pixellated(No, I don't mean the low quality) like them you've described to give it a better fangame feel.
Now for the cons.
The game over remarks are very rude.
At first, I've played it on medium difficulty and went all the way to the Fleet boss, where I got my ass handed to me repeatedly by his cheapo dash attack. (HE STILL ONE-SHOTS ME ON MEDIUM WITH THE BEST GEAR.) The hitbox for that is way too large and he dashes too quickly. You MUST reduce at least one of those aspects in order to actually allow people to even beat the whole thing on medium to hardest difficulty. So I had to go to an easier difficulty, and the freaking boss dies in a heartbeat, he doesn't even get to dash. Blarf. The final boss was loads easier than that angel freak.
Not necessarily a con, but I noticed you don't get your money back for your old stuff when you upgrade. They did this with Tyrian.
Anyways pretty good, worth trying. Good job.
Thanks for your review.
Ship-against-enemy collision was really an issue. The point was to avoid at all costs colliding with the enemy, but it didn't got too when shield and plating were suposed to protect you.
My head is moving now
This is great, I like puzzles. Currently stuck on level 7, when I got all the boxes on the spots, the door opens on the OTHER side and I'm like...FML LOL. I'm not solving this again upside-down, not with my head hurting a little. It's good, I enjoyed it and may continue tomorrow. Here's the image of my unexpected phail for people to laff and learn from: http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/45 10/levelsevenfail.png
It's ok, but...
I got stuck on level 9 on a cave level at a dead end, and the jumping system didn't allow me to squeeze in the little hole leading to the exit. The grass stages are annoyingly time wasting, along with one volcano level. Level 2 was steep in difficulty compared to level 1...
Okay, several issues here:
-Hitbox is way too big
-Graphics need work
-Gameplay is severely limited
-Each time you die, the music plays over itself, this can be fixed by stopping it one frame earlier than when it starts
-Music kinda hurt my ears
I'm currently on number 68 so far. It looks like an oval with a "P" inside it. You've burned 2 hours of my time with this thing, nice job =P
The game could've had some more interesting visuals, instead of plain white. Other than that, great job!
I decided on the simplistic style instead, I think it fits more the brain-age kind of game if I may say so.
Thanks for playing :)
This is cheap
The gameplay is good, but there are so many things I loathe about this thing. There's two groups of people: the ones with incredibly fast computers, and the other people(The majority of the population). The ones with incredibly fast computers fully enjoy this game, experience no lag, and ca ntrap anyone with bombs easy and quick. The other poor saps, like me, are really slow even after you press the button that fixes that, and get dominated after they watch the other guys run across the bomb flames and trap them. >___> Fucking pisses me off. The laggy people call these select few lucky guys "hackers", if you want to go check. They aren't really hackers, they just have less cluttered and more hi tech pcs. Other than that issue, it's great, and addicting. Things I would like in here are stuff like ice, holes, arrows that carry the bomb over, being able to push other people's BOMBS...(this adds to the unfairness) and other stuff.
However, I agree with the other guy, you need to make more money in order to survive the harder levels. When you die, the enemies on screen you didn't kill should be destroyed. The multiple arrows I wish were more precise, so they're more useful...and sometimes the arrow goes right through the enemy :P Great nonetheless.
