Seems kind average-ish

The story is really cliche`, and not in a good way either.
I just had to stop and ask:
I can shoot through all of the other doors, but this one is locked, and I need to fid a key...
What... The... F***?
I'm not sure if you know, but the .45 the guy is holding, could probably blast through a lock.

FINALLY you produce a half decent game!

As you may know, I'm not a big fan of your games, finding them all cliche' top down shooters that you hail as the greatest groundbreaking technology since PONG and 3 dimensional television. I also criticize your beating to death of the top-down genre, with a good 90% of your games being top-down.

With The Savior, you've at least tried something new. Let's start with what I liked.

I liked the stat upgrading, and the backstory, or as you refer to it - RPG elements. That's debatable but I see where you're going with it and it needs work, but it's good for the time being. I also like the transition from close-up indoors and farther away when outside.

Now what can be worked on - TRY SOMETHING THAT ISN'T TOP-DOWN! It can really show your graphic and programming skills, staring at tops of heads gets boring after...well...really fast.

The walking animations are rather awkward, with the character looking like he's lurching to the bathroom with a nice turd coming out of his crack.

The voice acting was rather poor - not unbearable, but it gets annoying having to sit through the dialog then being able to click and reveal the whole text dialog. The one continuous loop of music also took away from enjoyability too.

TOO LAAGGY

Even in lowest quality and my PC never is this bad, if I shoot like 3 times in a row i freeze for 2 secs or more, that just break the game mood!

!!!

ok there are a lot of bugs. first of them is that it would not stop shooting after you tried shooting just once and would continue over and over and would not let me change where I am shooting either.

even on fastest Q it would not let me move at all without a lot of lag.

I just could not play the game at all without getting these two issues

I donnow, maybe you had too many programs/windos open? Have you checked if your flash player is the last release by Adobe?
