Fun, but...

Go easy on the dialog next time. Seriously. It shouldn't take me 15 minutes of READING just to get to actual gameplay. I know you're going for a story here, but to be honest, I got so fed up with the dialog that I just skipped everything. Not that it matters. The story is entirely disconnected from the game, which raises further criticism, but I won't go into that.

Dialog should be succinct. Get to the point. It doesn't take 5 paragraphs for the reader to catch on to a character's quirky personality. You don't have to develop a character in one conversation. Space it out. Let us get to know the character over time. Don't slap us in the face with his/her life story all at once.

#1 rule for movies: Show, don't tell.
#1 rule for video games: Play, don't show.

You may have a story buried here, but you suffocated my interest in it long before I was able to find it. This is not good story telling, it's FORCED story telling. That does not mean the story is bad, it's just presented poorly. Please try harder next time. I am a very big fan of video game narrative and have done extensive research on the subject, so needless to say I was very disappointed, especially after seeing the description, which reads "The most epic story for a Flash shooter!"

very good

This game was awesome. good music if not a little repetitive. the art and graphics were pretty good but not great. the story was very good, i felt the characters were 2 dimensional at the beginning but they evolved farely well over the course of the game. it was a little glitchy i noticed but all in all a very good game

Small budget game, big budget experience. =3

The story is somewhat by the numbers, but the shooter aspect is good. There's nothing really to complain about, it doesn't do anything wrong. It's an enjoyable and entertaining experience, if you ever try to get a job working for a big game company this'd be really nice to have on your resume for sure. Just one question . . what is the penalty for dying in this game? I didn't notice any loss of cash or experience. Is the only penalty having to try and beat the level again? If so . . that's pretty forgiving.
