[UPDATE3] Ive been listening to your comments with an open mind, and ive come up with v1.2. While its not everythgni you ask me to fix, tis certainly a step up.
-Fixed the score exploit when you crash, go back to main, then play again
-Made the boulders flying towards you alot more random in shape
-Added a new feature, its a fuel guage, now not only do you have to worry about smacking into things, but now you have to worry about running out of gas. There are gas cans flying everywhere which will fuel you up a bit at a time.
-background is Darker
-the higher the difficulty, the faster the objects move.
Ill be listening for more comments and suggestions.
[UPDATE2] made the Bg darker and slower, should give alot less seizures now :p But reemmber, visit the optiosn menu, if it still bothers you, you can always turn it off.

To answer one or two other things:
#1. The plane is jerky. No i programmed it like that. it "glides" for a while until it levels itself out. Do you EVER see a plane falling down while pointing up? In fact i got more complaints when it was like that, so whatever.

That wasabout 99% of the complaints. But please, check the options first, you might be suprosed what you can turn off and on.

Controls are Simple, simply the spacebar, it is used to raise the airplane higher and let go to let it lose altitude.

Remember to hit the options menu when you first load the game, you might find that some options are bit unique as comapred to 99% of the flash out there. its not simply a quality setting. Its where you can change difficulty settings and turn special things off (like smoke trails) to make your computer run at a faster framerate. Also if you dont like the music that i have selected as the random tracks to play while playing the game, you can turn that off too.

Another thing i should mention is the new Tilt-o-meter, something new to this genre of games. If your plane goes above or below 45 degrees of angle, your engines will burst from stress, leaving your plane a twisted pile of burning wreckage at the bottom. Just to add a little more difficulty to the whole sceme of things.

The scoreboard should work on NG, i havent tested it, but if i can submit scores by running the swf from my harddrive, then NG should not have any problems. Each difficulty has their own scoreboard, so those playing on easy arent ruling out those on Insane mode. To keep everything fair. So in total there are 5 different scoreboards at one time. Took 2 days for me to finally figure the damn thing out.

On a final note. I do wish that if you have any suggestions for improvments, please feel free to say them in your comments. I know i dont have to say this as youll probably slap me in the face for the smallest flaw anyways, right ;)

HAVE FUN! in that violent-competetive-rush
path sort of way :)

Pretty Good

I love these types of games! The smoke put me off a bit and the boulders need to be made to look like boulders..its good!

Good, but it is too easy. The plane looks bad and needs a tune-up. The crash explosion looks crummy. The obstacles look strange and don't belong. Needs a bit of work.

SCORE: 3335
yes!!! this is a really cool game DarkViper! It's been awhile since i've seen/played your last flash. But wow, this is some great stuff. I really liked the graphics they were very detailed and textured nicely. You've done well with choice of music. The gameplay was great and very fun. nice work DarkViper!
