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.

good but...

the town is a bit crowded as i did not intend to walk into many buildings that i did
when you have an injured medic and it gets out of combat its fully healed allthough the medic should be the only one that should be injured.
and make a "try again" button as i dont want to reload the page

Well if you find the town too crowded, you will like it an outside desert :)

Medic is supposed to work in this way, in battle she can heal only other units, but after fight, she can heal even herself.

You can always buy 2 medics and they will heal each other if needed..

Quite good!

I like the traditional starcraft style, and the movement was easy. The sound effects were nice, but the combat screen needed a bit of work, such as you had in the intro, so it would look realistic.

This game definitely has potential

I think this game definitely has some potential to be a lot better than it currently is. Right now however it does suffer from some flaws. The gameplay unfortuneately is not very intuative at all, and in fact I really had no idea / interest in trying to figure out a lot of the main town.

Also the time between random battles is just rediculously fast, and really killed the fun factor IMO.

I think you can actually tweak this game a bit and make it a LOT better, for instance by adding a better way of moving / interacting with NPCs and structures. Also it would be great if there was more of a focus on guiding the player through what to do and where to go initially that would be great.

Umm, mainly just a lot of polish would do WONDERS for this game..as currently it seems like it COULD be fun, however it just isn't. Keep up the great work!

Oh, and btw...it's officer Dugal :)

I planned to make tutorial, but my testers told me that there is no need for it..

Time between battles is random, sometimes you fight a lot, sometimes you dont fight for a minute.
But there is an item calld "Radar" that can reduce random encounters by 80%, so you can just move around :)

The game is still being tested and many things will be added / changed.
