Daily 4th Place! Excellent!!!
Protect your vehicle and base from the attacking Dix!

This "simple" shooting game is mainly an experiment for a 3D type game engine and game script optimization. Let me know what you think about the controls and if you find bugs.

Known bugs:
1. Items sometimes disappear from screen - including Vehicle, Dix, radar dots. (I guess it has something to do with the swapDepth method, but not sure)

I hate the Dix!

They're so hard!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not bad

All I had to do was sit around the base fire and kill peopel reload fire and kill people. Never had a purpose past that. The first weapon was useless. At least give us somethign ath kills the bad guys. if you gave the players more to do it owuld be a lot more fun. The characters could have been a little bigger, or are they the size they are for later levels wheren there are more bad guys? I never saw them doing more then talking at me I could see them firing. Interesting game though I really didn't find any bugs at this point, I just got bored playing it

Good start

You should consider this a VERY good experiment. I'll just cover a few points:
- You have to give us a reason to leave the base. Now, it's easier to just stay at the base to defend it and constantly get repaired and reloaded
- The 3d aspect of the game is promising, but isn't real useful here for the above reason.
- Customizable keys is an amazing feature. I can't praise you enough for adding that.
- Need levels, or some kind of eventual end.
- Place objects around the map (perhaps weapons, other bases, a boss?)
- I liked the radar, but the zoom function wasn't really neccesary at all (nor was the radar since I didn't have to leave the base).
- Make the weapons a little different in style AND power. They all sounded and looked roughly the same, which is boring.

Conclusion- I'm very excited to see the next game you make with this 3D engine.

Ok for a Quick play

It was Fun at the Start, but after a while it became too easy and repetitive

I couldn't get myself to play it very long

I just couldn't get absorbed into the game.

Well, actually it's more like a demo. I ran into some performance problems and didn't finish the game as I intended. Now I know what made it run slowly so I'll return to it later.
