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!

Overall good game with a few issues

Awesome graphics and I really like the action/puzzle gameplay! Not much to say about that.
Here are my issues:
You should put the "Hints" in the game in case some people don't read your description. I would've been completely lost on the third level because the sensors looked regular lights to me. Also, it was a bit lucky that I figured out the wall jumping.
The track can be hard to follow if you are going over the same path, or standing for some time. Also, it might be a good idea for the track not to leave the game screen and not cross any visual user interface elements (especially buttons).

I just looked at a few other people's comments and my badges were saved, so not sure what happened to Briarios.
About the "trial and error" approach ... I disagree. I think it's a bit more like the Splinter Cell or Hitman series where you have to observe and then future predict other people's movements. Yes, this can be a bit challenging with the bosses but to me that was the fun/puzzle part of the game. I guess they missed it ?
Now I'm off to collect the final 'complete arsenal' badge. Perhaps you could continue with a Pico Day "sequel"? ;)

Did not like it, but...

I think the concept was very, very good, but to me it felt more like a trial-and-error / memorization thing than anything else. I understand that this is a strategy / puzzle game, but I shouldn't have to keep losing over and over again just to learn how an enemy moves / interacts. I understand difficulty is important, but to me this was just a cheap execution of an otherwise really good concept.

If you do make a sequel, I'd love to play it, because I do REALLY, REALLY like the concept of the game. I just think this particular execution was not the best. That being said, I really hope you make a sequel because I'll be the first one in line to play it.

Good, but..

Solid game, and lots of fun, but a few things I noticed. Some sort of way to preview what movements the enemies would make would be extremely helpful. Also, the trail can be very aggravating to use if you are crossing the same area repeatedly, such as against a boss. Also, after completing the game, even though I cleared the game, I didnt get any of the badges.

A fun, if short game.
