Excellent Game, With Only a Few Problems

First off, I have to say that this is a very well made game. A lot of work obviously went into this and it shows, so good job. I really enjoyed the mechanical age units, the concept for the tall walker unit was really cool. There were only a few things that kept me from giving this a 10, because it was really well designed in all aspects, so don't let my nitpicking take away from how good this really is.

Like others have said the force scroll to the enemy base every time they had a new unit got to be very annoying quickly. Granted it was cool to see their base get upgraded, but it just took me away from the battle or building and hurt game play. Another thing was the fact that I never knew what level the enemy was at, granted something new just popped out of their base, but not knowing anything about their units or how many upgrades they had it didn't make any difference. Some sort of advancement bar to let the player know where they are in relation to the enemy would be nice also.

Again, like everyone else has said, killing all the units once you upgrade to a new age is just painful. I like that I at least got money back from everything that was gone, but having to start from scratch each upgrade just was something I really disliked. It just made the game seem to drag out at times, because all the progress you made would be nullified every time you upgraded, and you would have to start from scratch again. To keep with the flow of the game in which you have to pick and choose which upgrades you want, your best bet would be to leave the existing units on the field and just upgrade the base. This way the units just die off and they don't get upgraded into new units.

The music was great, but considering most games take like 20+ minutes, it began to wear on me after awhile. A few more tracks would of greatly helped the game. I had to mute mine the second time I played this because of the repetition.

The one thing that is so hard about these types of games is making all the units balanced, but you really did do a great job on that. The only problems I noticed were the red exploding bugs seemed a little too powerful, because they were always finding their way into my army line and killing people even when I was at the highest age. I also always felt that I always was at a disadvantage to their air units, an air only attack unit for the higher levels would of balanced that out a bit more.

I didn't really like the whole gathering water aspect of the game. I get that it gave you some extra money, but it would always take up too many units and just drag the game out. If you wanted to keep that function of the game make it so there is 1 person gathering water, but it's from the main base and you don't need to take up one of the 6 building spots for a little extra cash. Also, make it so the gathers don't count as military units, because they don't attack.

On the subject of not attacking, I've noticed that some of the melee units, specifically the Halberdier's, like to skip over ground units and just keep on walking till they die or find a certain type of unit they like to attack. I just watched 5 in a row bypass a 'Charger' unit to attack something behind it. Most of them don't make it that far though, they just kind of walk till they get slaughtered lol.

This is one of the better games I've played on newgrouds, I just feel that with a few tweaks it can be even better. Really good work on this one, and I look forward to the next.

Ok now...

I give you 8, because of some flaws.
Some anoying bug eats away my save games.
No costum game.
No alien side option.
Short gameplay - less than 30 minutes on insane.
And mostly - it is way to addictive....

good game, a few problems --

first i beat this on hard, then extreme, and it was fun, but not overly challenging once i had my strategy figured out.

Its very annoying that the camera always moves to the aliens base whenever they upgrade, especially when i'm trying to put down turrets. on the topic of turrets, they are almost impossible to click on to check their health/upgrade/sell when they are surrounded by my or enemy troops. also, you can place turrets down, wait until they're almost destroyed, sell them, then create new ones without losing any money, i'll admit i exploited this, but i do believe it's unfair.

the early special powers are too overpowered, particularly the arrow one, that attacks both air and land units. once i get to the future stage, i always spam the arrows because of how effective it is, and my units destroy the enemy base with ease.

some ideas for your next game in this series - No linear age up progressions! give us a choice to whether we want to, say, upgrade from the stone age to a medieval age that discovered magic, or a medieval age that developed technology, and then each age up branches out into its own unique ages with their own advantages and disadvantages, meaning there could be more then ten different future outcomes, each with different technologies.
oh, and make a multiplayer option so you can challenge people online ^^

pretty fun, not a bad sequel.

i did take away one point because i dont see why we lose all of our men and turrets when we evolve... that didnt happen in either of the age of war games.

its funny, usually im the one having a tough time with games on here, and everyone else goes on about how easy they are... now its the opposite, i see people talking about how hard this game was, even on easy... and people needed 50,000 gold or so to get the tier 2 units, really?

i struggled a little each time i evolved, cause i had to get my men out there pretty quickly, but once i got a few unit types built, i could build up my gold a bit, upgrade them... etc.

once i reached the future age, i got my units out there, and once i got a decent combination of tier 1 and tier 2 units, i was gaining experience FAST, so i could keep spamming the arrow barrage special and surprisingly, it wiped the aliens out very quickly, even just one arrow barrage did a ton of damage!

i toyed with the aliens at that point, getting a few more achievements, then i wiped them out.

so, this is fun, but the only real annoyance i have, other than it being so memory-heavy, causing it to lag HEAVILY for me when loading up a game, is the evolution, because losing my entire front line, the only thing standing between the enemy and my weak base... really sucks.

still, fun game louissi, i look forward to more of these types of games from you. :D
