After 5 months of work and more than 12k lines of code written.. here comes StarCraft Flash RPG!
Level up one of the most famous characters, buy new units and upgrades, fight hordes of enemys,
but finally, meet and kill a new ultimate Zerg creation!
Features: about 5-10 hours of playtime, save / load game, autosave after every won battle, quests, npcs etc..

Warning: This game is hard. Just don't give up after first loose..
(If you still die alot, reduce difficulty to "low", but remember "hard" is the best)

Instructions: After starting a new game, click on your hero (in the middle of the screen) and turn "selection lock" to ON, so you can click anywhere to move.
Your first step should be to go to Barracks and buy medic or firebat.
After that, just go out of the city and enjoy watching how your squad kills some zergs.

You gain experiances, minerals and gas in battles or by doing quests.
Spend them in Barracks, Factory, Shop, Spaceport or Laboratory.

Remember: This is not an action game! Just sit and enjoy the show :-)
Not all locations are accessible, this is because of the 10 MB limit.

love the game! but....

wouldn't it be easier to work on the list of bugs that you put on the main menu now and then besides just sitting there wating until you have time to do the full version?
It would give you something to do and would tell people (that don't read reviews)that you haven't forgot.

nice going, but...?

I'm confused about the supply depot upgrade. What does it do and how do you use it? my first assumption was that I could now use 14 units, but I saw only 6 slots/circles for units, still. Great, looking great, i beat the ventilator part for now. someone please help me with the supply depot upgrade


maciik responds:

In the top right corner, there is your food supply counter (shows actual and total number) Units like a marine need 1 food but units like a tank need more.. So if you want 3 tanks you will need 9 food... This upgrade adds 8 to your supply (food) limit.
hope i helped
enjoy :)

Interesting...

Your game looks a bit... well, loose. You need more of an active story line, more than one way to level up, like a training facility, and the whole thing seemed a bit inactive... Make the terrain move around, the disco pub could be shrunken, or filled, the world needs a reason to be there, and prices need to be a bit more reasonable... Plus, you need to put resources in the map that you can mine or something... Also, the level up thing, make it to where every third level you go up, you defense goes up as well as your attack. Also, put some side missions or quests that allow the player to level up more quickly, or gain resources. Plus, make the things that you personally made from scratch more, well, graphic, Star Craft wise. And also, put a silent audio clip in your random stash that plays when you tell your guy to move. It gets annoying sometimes... Also, put more types of enemies out in the field, you could use infested terran even. Also, put a retry button or something, if not, at least tell people to right click and click "rewind" instead of refresh. Your game is great so far, but needs a little more action, or something. You need to get the player's adrenaline pumping. I'm not trying to be mean or anything, I just think that your game needs to be a little more fun.


maciik responds:

Man this is just a little flash tribute to the starcraft. In no way I wanted to make such a perfect game as starcraft.. (or any other commercial rpg)
Thx for some good ideas (side quests) :) But why do I need to get player's adrenaline pumping? lol.. no way man, this is not an action game.. This is about recalling your memories about good old times when we played starcraft 24/7.
peace :)

Aswome game

but why do we have to be jim ranyor? cant we just make our own name,
and could we pick a diffrent class besides marine? like firebat or ghost or golioth pilot, there just sugestions, but i like the idea alot and the game itself is realy good keep up the good work


maciik responds:

The marine character has got about 100 sprites for walking. So if I add firebat + ghost + some protoss units.. it will be quite a lot of images => quite bigger size.
