This game is good, its a good game, perhaps probally one of the best madness games, but not without flaws. Sometimes my character [Example : Hank] acts on his own [Lag?]. The allies mostly stuck in a middle of the round [Probally related to Leadership stats ; when you hover your mouse -
over the rectangle bars the info shows where it says 'Ally Reaction Time']. While I like the game, I can understand that your trying to eliminate those bugs. Keep up the good work and I'll happily wait for the updates.

I first want to say: one of the best games I have ever played.
BUT there have been a few things I have noticed in the arena mode. When I have a team of 5 things get a bit buggy, first of all lag, but that is to be expected, however on many frequent occasions members of my team get 'stuck' or shut down, they basically don't move or shoot and just stand there for the remainder of the wave. Such places include: Barrels, the bottom of the screen at the edge of the 'map' and in the corners. The main problem with this is that they are still targeted by the enemies and can't defend themselves, so I have to swoop in and save them or let them die.
On another note, not really a bug but man the latest episode in the story is tricky. I particularly find those guys in bandages that revive once (Before being revived their hands are tied) are incredibly annoying since they can latch onto you. It makes melee a bad idea and I have to resort to 'saving' a powerful gun so that I can blow their heads off before they can revive.
Anyway, great game, love the story and looking forward to the next update

Probably the BEST game on newgrounds.
on a side note i think it would be cool if when an enemy is doing that stand up while dying and they put their hand out animation that if you press spacebar before they fall you use them as a meat shield.
