Author Commentary:

BoMToons: This was intended for Madness Day 2010, but was slightly delayed. I had this gameplay idea while watching some Madness cartoons. It's gone through a lot of revisions based on lots of player feedback (thanks Coaly and Jacksmack!). I hope you give it a chance! There are tons of other gameplay features we wish we had time to add like smarter AI, more stealth rewards, smarter reloading constraints, more balanced guns, the ability to watch all your replays in a row, etc...maybe for a sequel? As always, it's a pleasure to work with Luis, his take on my ugly level mock-ups brought a richness and fun to the story that I never would have included. P.S. This was coded "Somewhere in Nevada" where I live!

Luis: This is a strategy/puzzle game, kinda like chess. Enjoy!

a few points for the idea

I realy like the idea, but you never know the movement pattern of the enemys before your first attempt of a level. I stopped playing at the first boss, because of this. There isn't any way to predict when the boss is at a specific place except for playing the level over and over again and memorize the times or hope for some lucky shots.

Good but needs work

the concept and play wise was good but the execution of some of the pre-preared strikes never land where you want to hit them. The timer is far to fast for people to track the stage movement and you end up trying almost each stage 20 to 30 times over before you either give up or finally get a lucky shot. I seriously gave up on the final stage being 450 seconds and completely bonkers with that stupid shield of his forcing you to move. To top it off most of the shots don't hit the right spots anyways so I'm not even going to bother with the "Beat the game" Medal. It would be nice that we would see the movement and actions of some of the obstacles since that made me retry at least 10 time each stage after the first one. Other than that good effort though. Was expecting a more promising and enjoyable title. Happy *PAST* Madness Day 2010

New Madness

I really like the originality of this game. I can't say much new besides what has already been said. I do have to say that it is kind of trial and error. On the second stage I kind of got frustrated because I missed the enemies the first time through because I had no idea that they moved. I get what Orosi was saying about it being like Hitman, but in that game there was no time limit and you could observe the enemy before making a move. Still, the concept is great and I really hope to see more.

Problems with the shooting track

It's a very good game mechanic, I like it, and everything is really stylish. But there's a few problems that I've run into...
First, the timer seems to be there to be used to help time the actions of the enemies. But it counts down so quickly that it's barely of any use, that you have to guess at the time within a general space of a hundred or so.
Secondly, the motion track that you place the shooting on can overlap itself so much that you find yourself being forced to alter your strategy just so you don't get confused and put the dot on the wrong time in the track (or be unable to place it on the correct spot, the track auto-selecting the dot onto itself)
Last, I've discovered once or twice that the targeting track goes under the 'restart' button, right where I need to shoot.
Other than that though, swell game.
