Feedback is very important to me! Please speak your mind and let me know what you liked or disliked, or if you'd like to see something more in the future.

Thank you all VERY much for all the feedback so far!
New question:

Q: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT MELEE ATTACKS (press 'a' to attack) INSTEAD OF PROJECTILES (mouse to aim and fire)?
a) keyboard + mouse all the way! keep the projectiles!
b) as long as it has upgrades and a story, i'm happy
c) hm, i'm not sure, and it doesn't seem like a terrible idea.. try it!
d) i like swords and melee weapons! love it. do it.
e) ... [other]

Also, I'm considering putting together a series of video tutorials to show exactly how I made this game (from scratch, start to finish), as well as providing source code and source "artwork." Some preliminary tutorial videos are at www.bigtac.com under the tutorials tab.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this!

FINISH HIM!

Hahaha this made me laugh :D Nice game but short, but then again i probably would've died if it was longer or got any harder :D

Q: HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF THE SEQUEL DID AWAY WITH THE SLOW-MOTION EFFECT?

I actually quite liked the slow motion effect so I'd have to disagree with that but still..

P.S. That fish was very yummy!! ^_^

haha, you have no idea how happy i am to hear that some people got a laugh or two out of this! and definitely thank you for answering that question about slomo in the sequel -- it directly effects what i'll be coding this week!

great

was very simple, and very original.
great graphics, ans superb gameplay. please make the tutorials 8-)
as for the slo-mo: it's the one thing (besides storyline) that made this game worth it, so keeeep it! could be improved though: maybe some way of really dodging the shuriken; and disable it when the vertical distance is big (i.e. when you are on the ground and the projectile high up, for instance).
and also, make it longer, cause the game was really short

Amazing

It's a wonderful game and I would really love a 2, but with upgrades and also would be nice a prequel with the ninja cat master and I really like it

So freaking cool!

As a player i dont feel restrained at all but there is still a difficulty to overcome, in short this game is brilliant! Add some sort of upgrades for episode 2 :).

Not to bad.

The music was good, action is smooth. The fighting aspect is not bad at all.

However the red enemy star bullet time paused actually prevent you from effectively jumping them.

It would help a bit if instead of clicking anywhere to advance the story if you made a click on advance button in the text bubble. I advanced the story before i wanted to because i was still throwing stars like a crazy person.

Good game, just needs some smoothing out.
