Really fun but actually quite easy. I didn't have to upgrade or buy any new helmets at all, actually I got bored and explored the menus and found out I could so I upgraded my current helmet fully.
Might have been better with like 2 lives or something per go until a complete gameover screen. And starting helmets should give you like 1 or 2 health only to encourage leveling up and buying helmets. That is theoretically something that could make the game funner and even last a bit longer in my opinion.
The only real issue I had with the game was that you can't go to the very bottom of the screen even though the artwork clearly shows an open space for you to travel along. This has got me caught in a bullet a few times. Annoying!

Also I dont even know what the Eye powerup does... Please tell us or update the game with a glossary of the items.

I also would have liked the missions explained better between levels and some more creative missions too.

mm That's all I can think of right now. Sweet game man! I voted 5 it was fun.

Thanks for the constructive criticism. You've given us a lot to look at, hopefully we can take it away and build on it for future games.

The game is very well made in almost every aspect. The music fits fantasic, graphics looking good, controls feel very smooth.
Only thing I noticed that there is almost no difficulty curve from easy to extreme or the game itself was too easy. got every single badge within 2 hrs. Don't know wether that's just me tho, so still 5/5.
Good Job! Had much fun!

We're reading this quite a lot, but we're also reading that some people find it too hard. What i think has happened, is that people that are used to this kind of twitch game are settling in and finding the game pretty easy to get into. Others, who aren't really into tight precision games, who have maybe not played many retro games are finding it hard.

I guess, that all we can really do in the future, is make a bigger jump with difficulty between each level. That way people can stop playing when they feel uncomfortable.

Very interesting though, thanks.

Well, the game itself is pretty solid, fun and has some degree of replay value. (The music is nice too) What really made it for me were the Metallica and Megadeth songs as the name of some of the extreme stages. (Seek and Destroy & The Mechanix). A nice surprise!

DoodleBin responds:

I'll pass this one on to Pete, i'm sure it will make him smile. :D

I love the game, the music and the graphics! is it me or does the music in the pause menu sound like crash bandicoot?

Awesome game, I felt great finishing it and as others pointed out the music never got old.
which makes for a lighter game and a quicker loading. I liked the controls too. Weird at times the dash wouldn't work on me but that's my old rickety keyboard. I will deffinitely share this game on FB and tell my friends to try and finish it :)
