Grats on this incredibly addictive game. Best was barely over 6 million ft. I like the weapons. Just wish i could see what was coming, half the time i'm flying to fast to manuever for money bags.

Its good but...

When you get every thing it gets boring and you find yourself goofing around most of the time, but its a very good game.

Great game; very addicting

I'll start by saying that I went into this game with very low expectations, but after about roughly 4+ hours (did I mention how addicting this game is?) I can say that there must be something here that must be good ;) . The game is violent, impressive, fast paced and incredibly hilarious. I especially loved watching the turtles expressions as he flew through the air (and inserting my own funny dialog for him during which), and the effects of the mosters/obstacles take effect on my poor specimine. The artwork by Gonzossm is great and the music fits nicely too. Having the shop and medals (with worthwhile achievements) adds whole new levels to an otherwise simple game; a well balanced game overall (with some cheese-factors once you get everything and fully upgraded, which is probably the way games should be).
The game's not perfect however; there are some especially frustration parts, and a few glitches. One of the most obvious (although probably more of a design flaw), is the hit detection. The hit detection is absolutely astounding: it acts at complete random, it only works when it wants to, high speeds almost completely nullify it, and theres no way to balance out the random bombardment of the approaching obstacles. The hit detection is out of control, and the WASD keys dont affect it at all; I have soared straight through money bags and spike walls (though I'm not complaining as much about the latter...). I would look at either removing obstacles at certian speeds/altitudes, or addressing the matter entirely. Another complaint is the WASD keys themselves: They dont do jack shit (and its not like I didnt try my hardest to get them to do something either; I tried using them in all sorts of situations). Luckily this is ok, because they dont need to either. I got through the game without using them at all, and really you dont need to manuver to get a good score. Although that said, it seems like you might be missing out on an intregal part of the game you were going for and fell short of. I would look into this for the sake of ensuring you got everything into the game that you wanted.
Other parts are just utterly annoying, such as how utterly easy it is to die. there have been times that I have fired straight into a spike wall or balloon spike and died. Other times I have had the Chest Bomb go off only send me into another spike balloon. I think you should really tone down the number of things that kill you. I had 450 nukes at one point and couldnt get through 50 of them and I was trying as hard as I could to blow through them. Still, if you use your ammo and your nukes right, as the game is, you could stay in the air all day. The last thing I would recommend (and this is just a personal desire of mine to see), would be a speed indicator. Its nice to see how your doing with the hieght and distance meter: a speed indicator would not only be really fun to see, but also help you strategize when the best time to use your ammo and nukes too.
On a more personal note, I will say that this game is tons of fun. My personal favorite strategy is to launch him almost straight forward just to maximize his speed and to put him in the hitting territory of the ground obstacles, wait for him to level out, then hit the rocket pack, and while in flight drop a nuke (if he doesnt hit anything) so that he soars straight up almost at maximum speed and then shoot him before he leaves the screen close to 1000 feet just for good measure :) . The poor turtle doesnt stand a chance, and this get you to +500,000 feet easily.
Theres a lot of room for strategy in this game, and that gives you a lot to experiment with, showing the mark of a truly good game with high replay value. Great job guys; you make a great team, and I hope to see more from you two in the future. Heres best of luck with your deal with Apple and the iPhone.

Personal Record:
Longest Launch: 7,931,122.8 feet Highest Altitude: 3400+ (aproximate unknown)

So much fun.

I'd like more music... but it doesn't really matter. I like how squirt squirtle is the turtle
