========
Plan Hank's moves through a strange area of Nevada. Make sure to think 4th dimensionally!
========
Controls:
Astral Projection Mode: Arrows
Shot Planning/Menus: Mouse

HINTS:
=======
The sensors on level 3 remove the lasers blocking the doorway
2 handed weapons (shotgun and AK) only fire forward
Remove assigned shots by clicking on an already-placed node
Broken glass shards can interfere with your shots, so wait a while after shooting out glass to take aim again

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!

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.

Concept could have been executed better

The first and last boss fight were kinda awkward in that you didn't really know what kind of pattern to expect, making it like a "play once or twice and expect to die" kind of deal.

Maybe I was blind, but you could probably allow the player to edit the movement path after it was finished, just in case you realized you did something stupid. (and I'm not talking about during the movement phase where a reset button actually exists)

Use a grenade, it will never come back, even if you reset the scene. I do believe this is a glitch. If it matters, I tried fragging the dance floor with the only grenade I bought.


BoMToons responds:

I'll look into the grenade glitch, thanks.
