(This game is a tribute to Gunstar Heroes and all the classics that my favourite game company Treasure made. It's also got little shout outs to over games as well.)

Yes, I know stuff is missing and some stuff could be done better, but it's just a little flash project I wanted to really do for myself. It's a mix between, Gunstar, Megaman and Contra.)

(If you like this game, or any classic 16 bit, run 'n' gun games, please help me fund a fully featured game through Kickstarter!)

:Overview:
Well, it's finally done. I know it's a bit late but I ran into some issues like you do. Anyway it's all there, four big levels, lots of bosses and some retro action sprinkled on top.

It's pretty difficult but there is unlimited continues to counter balance that aspect. I've added medals and extras to unlock for you peeps who enjoy that sort of thing.

It's a big, CPU heavy game, so if you're experiencing lag, you can download the standalone offline exe for free. (You could also resize the game by 2x to it's native 320x224 resolution.)

Here is the stand-alone:

Anyway, I hope you like it, it took a while to make and I have put a lot of effort into this, (about four months worth really.) So yeah, hope you enjoy.

I love this game! It remindes me of a lot of retro games I have played (especially megaman). This game is pretty balanced actually. It just takes patience and skill to get through the levels. The animation is beautiful as well. And each boss from each stage fight in their own unique way, as well as having unique weaknesses that you can exploit to bring them down. So far I have completed the first level. I wish there was more weapons, but the gameplay is good enough to forget about that. I hope to see more games from you.

A monster cpu? nope. My computer is ultra shitty, and I played the game in its full velocity. Remembers me megaman. I liked.

Really enjoyed this game, but only one chance at the last boss? I died to it and the game reset...Don't feel like playing through the whole last stage again.

I actually don't have a problem with the interesting control scheme. What the issue comes down to is balance.

It's not hard in a -fair- way. You simply cannot dodge most of the stuff coming at you. There are large hit detection boxes, and just when you figure out a pattern some other random thing is scripted to fly at you automatically.

Seriously, the jumping fish on level one are a great example. You wait for one to jump, then shoot it down. Then, after waiting by the side to make sure another won't pop up, you jump...ONLY TO HAVE A FISH AUTOMATICALLY JUMP RIGHT WHEN YOU DO. If the jumping mechanism was more complex and you had a fair chance of dodging this sort of stuff, it would be okay. Kind of fun, even. But you can't, which sucks the fairness (and enjoyment) out of the game. =(
