Meteor Blast Synergy takes the color-matching meteor destruction of Meteor Blast and introduces an innovative new Synergy system to merge lasers and cause even more devastation. Arcade mode now has 10 stages with stat upgrades, complete this and you can try new Endless mode. There's also a list of Challenges to try and complete which will unlock Ultra Hard mode if you succeed.

Important - not all keyboards will let you hold W, A and D togther, which is required for Synergy. If the key combos dont work for you, they can be reconfigured from the options/pause menu. Play about with them until you get something that works and feels comfortable.

Lag has been greatly improved since before, but if you still have problems there are new performance options - set low quality and particle effects from the options/pause menu.

I'm really grateful to Newgrounds for the response to the original Meteor Blast, I read through all your reviews and tried my best to take every suggestion into account for making this the sequel you wanted. Hope you enjoy it and I look forwards to your comments.

Edit - Thanks for the daily 5th and all the great reviews people have been leaving : D

great game

when the 3rd color was added i thought to myself " i wonder whats gonna happen next"

then u started mixing them
and i was like " oh, i see where this is going "

but the stat points probably needs to go somewhere

maybe more things that u can put stat points on , or higher levels

and how i like how u made the combos use more energy
i think the white laser was a tad too much

but it really makes u think, a good stratagy game, somewhat

a good shooter as well

to spice a sequil up maybe add different songs
a really kewl backround ( think, bejeweled 3 backround )
maybe after u beat the campaign kinda thing, have the ability to go back to any 1 level

and btw, as the 1 guy said it was too hard after level 2, ignore him
adding and fourth color will be a bit much, but maybe that could be an unlockable using the S key

having more unlockables means mroe play time, making for a better game

and the only thing i found annoying is how those damn tetroids kept coming in beside the rocks, and werent pulling away, forcing me to shoot it
>_<

also, might want a bad next to helath and laser, showing the amount of power in the slower beam thingy ( dunno what it's called )

i like the name, but it could have been a little more, catchy
"Meteor Blast Synergy" sounds like an old atari arcade game
and just as well could have been that

one last thing, if there will be a number 2, since your using the laser so much, please make the laser shooting effect a little more exciting

=]
overall
nice game

Wow, very useful review, I appreciate it a lot.

I only used one song to save on file size, although I did a longer sequel I'd probably use a few track to vary it a bit more.

The blue circle in the bottom right corner shows how much Vortex power you have left, maybe this wasn't clear enough.

The title was meant to sound a bit Retro as I think the game has this sort of feel. Btw, this is #2 already, the original was called Meteor Blast last year.

The laser effect was one of few things I didn't upgrade since the original so if I do a 3rd I'll definitely make it more exciting.

Huge thanks for this review, I'd like to do a sequel one day and was a bit stuck for ideas, so suggestions like yours help me a lot.

fantastic game

Well thought out and put together expertly, nice going! My only bit of advice would be to give the game a cooler style because as it is it's functional but not in a fashionable way. that stylistic design is exactly what would make this game absolutely perfect. It's already got everything down besides that so i guess just think it over. Good luck.

too easyjavascript:submission_controller.GetReview

You should make it harder / trickier... Regular game gets boring before last stage, and it was way too easy to get there. But overall nice game.. :P

I'm getting mixed feedback about the difficulty, its hard to appeal to everyone's gaming abilities. I hoped the Ultra Hard mode would give better gamers something to challenge them. Thanks for your review.

Fun and hard

It was cool I was never into these kind of games but it was really interesthing to play this one but I kept messing the keys up lolz.
I noticed a bug tho, when I got the yellow laser and the level began my laser just staied red and didn't change at all, once I finally used the red laser it went back to normal but it was too late for me, that kind of pissed me off because I got there without a scrath and then all of a sudden I die because of that, but either way it is a really fun game, keep it up!


ChromeShark responds:

The problem with the lasers may be to do with your keyboard, could try reconfiguring from the Options. I'll look into this though in case its a bug. Thanks a lot for the review and the 10!
