CONTROLS:
Arrow Keys - Move / Aim
Z - Shoot
X - Jump
C - Change Weapons
Spacebar - Pause / Open Map

You can also use WASD to move and JKL to shoot/jump/change weapons, however on some browsers/keyboards you may run into issues with too many keys being pressed at once, nothing I can do about that.

========================
PLAY WITH A CONTROLLER:
========================
If you have a PC Gamepad, I highly recommend using the Joy2Key Software. You can download it: here: http://bit.ly/NCx4h

Saving - Progress through the stage is saved automatically at every major checkpoint. If you have to leave and come back, your progress will still be there!

Bugs - If you do find a bug, please report it to me via PM. Be as descriptive as you can, I can't fix things if I don't know what went wrong!

Sticky Keys Bug - If the keys feel like they're sticking, character keeps running after you let go, please read the third post in this thread: http://www.newgrounds.com /bbs/topic/1123318
This is a bug with some browsers/systems and there's really nothing I can do to fix it.

Update: Version 2 is now up. I made Polmire easier on easy.

Argh.

I don't understand why you are making 6 bad games with terrible, boxy graphics (some games are boxy for the artistic style, but this one isn't). The controls are god-awful and adding some fancy voice acting won't even cover up the fact that the game is boring.

This pretty much feels like taking a huge shit: It's only good when it's finally over.
Then metaphorically speaking I have to clean myself playing something decent afterwards.

Good

Great part of this series but one part that I really couldnt stand was the claw boss where you had to shoot his eye to make him go back and fall. Not very fun for me. Other than that great game

I don't see the purpose

Instead of making 6 games, why not make a single extremely good one? The voice acting is weak and generic, the music dull, the gameplay uninspiring and the controls are ridiculous; anyone who knows PC games uses left ctrl to fire. Z makes no sense as a default.

The art style is run-of-the-mill and there's no point in losing marks for that, but as a 3D artist I don't see the point of several games following the same theme. You overextend a mediocre script, and fail to work on the gameplay. It's just a series of cliched scenes and gametypes that I could play in other games on this very site at a much more polished level.

It feels like a semi-rushed mish-mash rather than a true expression of artistic ability. The issue is that it feels much worse than what it COULD be, and that's where it falls down. Clearly there's talent here, but I would never be satisfied with something of this standard. Even the introductory movie for example needs sharpening up, and the actors told to ditch the American sci-fi cliche accents. Arguments are more rapid than your portrayal, and the scene is unskippable. That's not just frustrating, it's also unfitting with the game itself, which is designed to be quick and brutal. Where's the scene setting?

Overall, the programming is fine and the art standard. It doesn't have to be beautiful to be functional. But that's the problem; it's merely functional. Why create six? I don't get it, and it seems like a real waste of time when you could have invested in making something not only original, but also stunningly good.

Uninspiring and I expected better.

Nealy done

Only one more to go and I still love this series. Sure it's graphics aren't the best but it's great fun with fun bosses. I don't see why there are so many complaints, graphics aren't everything and the story to the series is good enough that I want to know how it ends. I hope the last pat is as good as this one.
