Note 3: Umm....strange, it's way slower than it was in the flash player! If you feel it's too slow then copy the link below and select "Save target as" or something, and play it locally. (Remove the extra spaces)

Note 2: The medals should be up and running after they're approved (I don't know how long that will take though), and there's one extra medal that's secret which doesn't work, sorry!
Note: The default medal popup is disabled due to VCAM issues, so if you want to preview the amount of medals you have without refreshing, then go to the "Medals" page in the main menu!

Full title: UFO Tree Cutters: Dawn Of The Chainsaw

Your job is to help the aliens (who are not shown in this game) cut the trees with their trusty steed, the UFO, and a chainsaw; there are about 16 levels in this game (I intended it to be 18 but ran out of level ideas), which are unlockable in series by getting stars (which you get by playing levels)

~~ INSTRUCTIONS ~~
You'd be far better off reading the instructions in the game and getting a medal by doing so but here they are:

1) Click and drag the chainsaw; you will see a line being dragged from the center of the chainsaw to the center of the cursor.
2) Release the mouse button the let fly the chainsaw.
3) You can cut 50% of the trees in the level (rounded) for 1 star, 75% of the trees (rounded) for 2 stars, and 100% of trees for 3 stars.
4) Press the "blue button that has an arrow facing right" to preview the level, and the blue button that "has an arrow facing left" to go back to the UFO.
5) Don't like the music? Press the "mute" symbol button to mute it, or is it too high? Go to "Options" and select "Low" or "Medium" for the sound volume.
6) Press ESCAPE to go back to the play screen anytime (except when it's loading, derp)

Good effort I suppose.

But I found it boring. Not to mention annoying.

I sincerely wished you had put in some sort of minimum and maximum power amounts. I found that when the chainsaw flew too fast, it just seemed to hit nothing.

I also wished I could actually see what I needed to hit without scrolling the screen. Taking blind shots is not that fun.

Also, I wish there was a restart button to click.

Every time I restarted level one, the music turned back on.

I wish you made it more clear what the hitzone is/isn't.

Why is there even a "skip" button? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of earning stars?

I haven't spent very long on this game admittedly, but there's just little to actually do, and little point in doing so. There's lots of unnecessary annoyances that make an already basic (and random) game more tedious.

Where is it going?

I did not enjoy this game, mostly because there seemed to be so little point in it. I appreciated that the idea was a little original, but not much beside that. The weirdest thing was that the trees didn't even seem to be chopped down when I beat a level. Anyway, the graphics were not that impressive either. There didn't seem to be any shadings, only solid colors. Next time, you may want to make everything move more smoothly.

At first I thought it was one of those bouncing games where you tried to make the chainsaw go to the other side of the screen fast. I think it would have worked better if you had done that. You should work on your lines and maybe make it a bit slower. I could not keep up with where the chainsaw was going or what it was doing. At least the drawing lines part was kind of nice.

Um..

PROS:
+Idea
+Boucing

CONS:
- Graphics
- No Point.
- No Story
- No Powerups
- Boring melody

All in all, this could have been better with little more work put in it.
