EDIT5:
(Fixed the medal issue in 1-1)
Like I said, it might erase game data because it uses internal saving and everytime I upload a new flash the savefiles get replaced. Also with people asking for a pause button, and edits to the game... I'm currently working on my second flash game and don't have time to return and iron out the bugs/improvements. I will go back to it, once I've finished my other flash game. Cheers.

EDIT4:
Seriously thanks for the Daily 3rd and front page!

Secondly, I know about the weapon issue about being overpowered/underpowered. This being my first dabble in flash games I was experimenting and trying out things that sometimes may not end up actually working.
Originally it was just the rapid gun and you change the way/direction you fired it, however speaking to some people in the indie community, they said I should make more different weapons for extra diversity. Next time I'll use my gut instincts :P
Taking onboard people's criticisms and reviews I can next time develop a game with that in mind and improve. I didn't know it'd do this well as I'm still myself learning. Thank you for your reviews, it will help me in the future =).

Hey theres,
I be presenting you with me first ever flash game :3
I've been designing this game for a while now, and finally it's finished! I know it's not completely perfect but I have poured a lot of heart and soul into it. You play as a rock that wants to journey into space...and he can also shoot lasers out of his eyes. (And missiles.) You need to protect your little space island's only source of flight, four balloons that will guide Mr.Rock into space.

Anyway it's got three stages, each with nine parts and a boss at the end. Five weapons, each with three levels of power and lots of different types of rocks/baddies. There is a help section in the flash game with extra information about the game.

I'll just say the controls 'ere just case.
ARROWS - MOVE
A - SHOOT
ENTER - ACCEPT/SKIP

Anyway I hope you like the game and enjoy the arcade like action!
-Sinclairian.

EDIT:(It does have medals but I guess it needs to pass "under judgement" stage.)
EDIT2:(I guess it doesn't cause I can see them)
EDIT3: With people bringing up the issue of weapons, I've changed it so when you collect a different power up, you don't lose your charge. However I do believe it this wipe out previous saves people have made, so I'm sorry about that. (It might not though).
Also thank you for your kind words and reviews! ^^

A fun, mindless shooter...

But seriously? Spread is broken. Once my spread was maxed, I did nothing for the entire first world (including the boss) but stand in the middle and hold down the fire button. Oddly enough, though, one other problem I've found is that precise aiming is actually very difficult, thanks to the fact that Mr. Rock alternates which eye he shoots from. I realize that they fire in a set pattern, but when you're concentrating on your three-pixel-wide target, it can be difficult to line up your shot.

All in all, very good for a first attempt. It needs some balancing and polish, but as first attempts go, this is exceptional, I think.

Cheers!

No saving...

I'm pretty sure that this game don't have autosave progress or any tipe of saving.
I usually play many games on Newgrounds and I've never had any problems if progress saving until today, that's why seven.


SinclairStrange responds:

It should save just fine? I'm guessing it's either,
a) Didn't get enough points to unlock the levels, or
b) you need to change the local limit of saving on your computer to unlimited.
-Hope this helps.

Fun but way too easy

Weapons are simply overpowered. Spread, homing, missle and rapid are all way too strong which makes this game very easy
