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!

Nice idea

But the execution sucks. Needs at least "undo" or "restart" buttons and mute button.

Awesome!!!

This certainly is a great idea for a game-style. Haven't seen anything like this before! The art was of course perfect and the music was well adjusted. The only thing that I though was weird, was that the last boss level was the easiest of them all! :D Also it was really hard to kill that chain-gun dude.. He was a real pain in the ass!
Overall thank you, this was a great game!
Everything: 10/10! :)

great game

great concept i like it alot and i know that you probably would have add more stuff if you had the time for it but i just want to give some recommandation which i think would make the game better.
when you enter a level give us a preview how the enemies move. mostly you come into a level and just give it a lucky try hoping for the best because you dont know whats actually going on.

also like others said give us a general restart button and make your timeline thing , dunno what to call it, more editable or somethin like showing us the "ghost" of our previous try.

and one personal thing is every time you shoot you could make a short slowmo, it would make it way more spectacular and satisfying if you get a right shot ;)
im really hoping for a sequel.

Very nice

I like the concept behind the game. It was quite challenging, but you pick on things as you go making it more and more interesting. Good job on the game! Make some more!

Great :]

Overall idea of the game is great - creating something similiar to Madness movies but with players as the directors of the films. It's much more fun than with regular run'n'gun Madness games, yet I won't say that it's perfect at this moment. But it feels like a 9, so... consider most of what I will write next as suggestions.

While I simply love the idea of planning and then watching, some levels can be completed only by trying them a few times to learn how enemies will be acting and only after that we are ready to wipe all Madness-guys. This is highly visible in fights with Tricky and Agness, pre-Tricky level and level with flametraps. Knowing what, when and how often everything will happen would help a lot.
Moving is another issue that needs fixing is movement - we have no option of reseting the path after it's all done, only during planning, what is kind of frustrating, because we often have to fail level as a result of some stupid move. There are also problems with putting "shoot dots" on spots Hank crossed few times - sometimes the game allows us to put them in time we're not very interested in. Perhaps adding a "timeline", an optional method of placing "dots" which is not affected by path we've made would fix it.

This game is about Madness, killing with style and I must say this aspect is quite poor at this moment. User-made movies are quite nice but not.... not awesome ;p It is because we have no "visual candies" to put here. No acrobatic moves, no bullet times, no melee fights... Maybe some death animations, dodges etc? Think about it, now this game is good, but it can be awesome :D

I give you a nine. And 'll be waiting for Madness: Premeditation 2 expecting it to blow my mind with its awesomeness ;)

yes, I would like to add in a lot of that in a sequel, thanks for reviewing :)
