Awesome!

I really like this game, voting 5 here is an easy protection point. There is no way anyone could blam this.

A couple of things I have noticed though, getting below someone seems to give a MASSIVE almost insurmountable advantage.

The shield tower only blocking the top is fairly insignificant considering that the game is based on who can get below the other person first. I think you should be able to choose the direction of the bubble with the same aiming as everything else.

I think the homing missiles should have a set distance they travel before they start to home in. It rather sucks to hit yourself with a missile because you accidentally put the power too low.

On that same note, there should definitely be a way to cancel actions. Many times already I have accidentally clicked one of my guns causing it to shoot myself when the round starts. Not only do I lose money and the ability to use that gun on my opponent, I also take damage. It is a very big annoyance that could be solved with a simple second click = cancel function. Click once to do stuff, click again to cancel.

The four person games are usually a gankfest against the top people. Starting below the others is quiet a bit unfair and makes me really not want to host four person games. Maybe we could start at random locations, or a bigger map in which no one could actually hit the people above them without moving.

In any case, I need to get back in there and finish unlocking all the weapons! This game is too addictive and fun for me to stay in here reviewing!

Fun.

It was fun, and the first flash that I've seen like it.

The multiplayer feature was great.

Everything was good except that the first round i played i didn't have enough time to get used to the gameplay, and the weapons are very small, so you "waste" time trying to click and fire them.

My suggestions are that you make the weapons a little easier to click, and the game should wait until everybody acknowledges somehow that they are ready to begin the attack phase, (by clicking a button, or just waiting until everybody has set their firing specs) or at least make the time limit a little longer.
