UPDATE: Wow! Front page! Thank you! I'd like to say that, yes it doesn't have much of a story, but it's only supposed to be a fun run-and-gun platformer made in a little over a week. And yes, we love Cave Story!

UPDATE 2: Now with a better intro and some tweaks.

Made for Flixel February!

Press P to pause. You can also use SPACE to jump and CTRL to fire.

We got it in *just* under the wire, and it's kind of rough. If you find any bugs or problems, let us know!

You, the lone crew member on a small vessel, find a space station near the edge of explored space beaming out a distress call. As anyone would do in such a situation, you blindly investigate.

Features include multiple weapons, rocket jumping, fast physics, and a retro style.

I would like to thank Synteza for producing the loops for us. They're awesome.

Finally!

It is rare that people publish truly quality flash games and this is definitely one of them. My suggestion to you is to add more levels, or a sequel, add more "missions" and stories, upgrades for weapons and then pitch it to wii.

Huzzah!

As my favorite box-shaped monster would say, HUZZAH!

There's no problem of blatantly ripping off of another game as long as the game comes out good. If taking ideas from other games was a crime, then nobody should ever make another first person shooter because it copies Doom, nobody should ever make another RPG because it copies Final Fantasy, and nobody should ever make another RTS because it copies Command & Conquer, etc. etc.

Great job on the game. It's well polished, but it is indeed too short. The game practically ends as soon as the player gets used to using their weapons. Usually, at that point, that's when the game's supposed to get harder and the enemies/bosses get more creative.

The secrets were a nice touch and a cute throwback to retro game platformer secrets, although after a while they get too easy to find when almost every secret area can be found by looking in every vent in sight.

Despite the shortness of the game, the story is all right, which is actually a plus because it's a flash game and as far as flash games go their stories usually stink.

The gameplay is smooth and overall polished, although the shortness of the game definitely cuts down on the experience. I hope you make a sequel in the future, this is good stuff.

Good game, nice tribute.

First of all, to everyone bitching and moaning about the artist stealing the idea or whatever: Shut the fuck up. Yes, it plays just like Cave Story. So what? Enjoy the game for what it is, and stop whining about foul play. It's a fucking flash game, for crying out loud.

Secondly, I enjoyed playing quite a bit, though I'm playing through again to get this machine gun I apparently missed.
