A nice game, but inferior compared to Faultline.

I recognized the style as being similar to Faultline, so no wonder they are from the same author. They are both platformers with a gimmick, the difference just is, that the gimmick in Dirk Valentine pales in comparison. Faultline's gimmick is a real mind blower and something totally different from what you've seen in other games. Here, it's basically just a hookshot weapon that bounces. The gameplay works, but doesn't feel particularly fun.

One thing I'm wondering about both of the games is the scoring system. I found it unmotivating and merciless that going for the hiscores basically just means trying not to die through the duration of all the levels.

ps. Faultline was published on NG first, but I wonder which one of the games was made first?

Smashing, lad! Just smashing!

Beautifully designed. However, firing the chain can sometimes be difficult for my netbook mouse. Think you could add an option to allow firing the cannon with the spacebar instead of the mouse buttons for better control?

The flaw with the chain gun is that it is not the best short range weapon. The hero needs to defend himself better when the gun jams or the chain is being used elsewhere. Allow him to punch the adorable hun enemies. (I punch you because love you, chap! *BAMF!*)

Also, you know you can change the cursor icon in flash. A steampunk target is in order.

Pretty awesome!

I remember playing this on Nitrome in 2007. It was pretty fun I have to admit.
