What started off as a minigame for the AG contest soon turned into one of my most complex and large games ever- yet we still had the same amount of time to make it. We put TONS of work into this game, hope you all enjoy it!

Can you collect all 27 sand dollars?

THE LATEST FREEZE GLITCH THEORY is that it is a firefox-specific problem. I have no idea why, sorry for the inconvience. Just download the game or play it on IE/Safari/netscape.

If the game freezes at the end, i want you to tell me exactly what you see, how long you waited, what mode you played, etc. Neither me nor any of the beta testers encountered this glitch that a few of you complained about, so i need to know the details to find out if it really is something wrong with the game.

Good, But Could Be Better

its a nice idea and i like the little nods to Metal Slug. However, the levels could have done with more variation, and more bosses would have been fun. Some more of that Metal Slug humour would have been nice too. Also, the final level dragged on too long, and it could have done with a little bit of a cut, or least mroe variation or a mini boss or two.

Overall, it is a nice game and a nice idea, but it could do with a tighter level design, more variation and more than just two real boss fights (I do not count the hot air balloons as bosses)

A few things

1. I agree with everything stated below
2. you might consider adding a bit more of a story line though, just a smidge

Good Game

I have seen the original Metal Slug and this, I believe, is a great family-friendly representation of that game. The music was appropriate, giving the game the true beach theme. I applaud your variation in the weapons as well. The storyline was a little bit lacking, but understandable, since most shoot 'em ups lack a real story. What annoyed me the most was the loss of all power ups at a death combined with the fact that you could die from a single hit. I would have like to see a little more variation in the gameplay (small thugs - more thugs - more thugs - hot air balloon - repeat made the game a little tedious). The sand dollars make the game require multiple playthroughs not only to locate each one, but to actually remember were each one is on a fall. I did not see this as a multiple playthrough game, so this really left a bad taste in my mouth.

If you were to make a sequel, I would suggest adding in some type of tank weapon, like in the original games. I would also add in some type of water flamethrower, allowing for group kills.

Overall, however, it was an ok game

4/5 8/10
