Try flying Luna over the head of the boss in the Lazlo mine. :p

A very solid and well built game

This game is a fine example of Flash craftsmanship. I see this game as being very complete. It has above average graphics, sound effects for much of the gun shots and explosions, powerups after each level, unlockables, save games, etc. The content that comes in this small package is quite diverse and makes for a very fun game session.

The graphics in the game were, for the most part, done quite well. There were, however, a few instances where some of them seemed to get a bit simplified. For example, the shots for the first weapon were mere brown spheres. While this does express the fact that the weapon is simply less powerful than the other two weapons, it is hardly cool ammunition to look at. That, although is not a very important thing and I would not worry too much about changing it. On the other end of the aesthetics, I think both the user interface of the menus was put together good and the transitions throughout the menus were very smooth and streamline making for a very easy time finding your way thoughout the menus. Also, aesthetically, the sound was quite good as well. A good selection of music and sound effects adds to the ambient atmosphere of the game.

Gameplay, although not the most original thing I have seen, was quite good and the programming was pieced together thoroughly. There were no bugs experienced during my gameplay, which shows that you went though some dedicated beta testing, or are just an amazing ActionScript programmer and got it all right the first time. If there was one thing I would have done about the gameplay, it would have been to speed it up. It just seemed to me that it was going along very slow. I think you could have made a much more interesting atmosphere had you increased game speed and made more particle effects for explosions, which in turn would create a sense of "chaos" thoughout the environments in the game; something that I think you are going for here.

The graphics, sound, gameplay, and over visual appealing game which you have made is a good example of what culminates after dedication and hard work. I think this is something to be proud of and definitely stands out from much of the other submissions. A tad bit of tweaking could work this game from "very good" to "superbly stupendous", though all in all, there is nothing about it that needs to be changed. This is an example of what I would consider a perfect internet game. It is not too long, concise, to the point, is fairly simple, and has a deal of replayability. All in all, it is a great game that I would recomend to anyone interested in side-view platform type gameplay.

Thanks for the review! :D

With regards to the speed of the game, I've considered making it faster, but then there wouldnt be much upgrading for it.. It was even slower originally. :p

Guess I have to make it faster. :)

Oh yea, I played this game tons of times myself just to iron out the bugs. :X

Pretty good

I like this game. It was a little repetitive in that to upgrade all the way you had to play the same stages over and over, but it was still very fun.

Just one problem: I was really disappointed with the third MAW. Its special was a little better than the first one's...I guess...but it was overall really disappointing following the Luna, which was by far the best one. I was expecting to be able to move in another strange way, or at least have my upgrade caps change...I think you should switch the order they get unlocked becuase being able to fly is A LOT more satisfying than having a special attack you can aim...

It's good just one thing..

Is there something wrong with the gun? Because there were times when I really needed the gun to fire, but it doesn't and I die.

Upgrading the speed didn't seem to do much either.

You need to press and hold down the left mouse button to fire.

If you selected the special guns and your special ammo runs out, it will revert back to the normal shot automatically.
But if you select the special weapons again, you will not be able to shoot, because you do not have the ammo.

Upgrading speed is for movement of the MAW.
Upgrading the rate of fire, increases the number of bullets per second.
The speed of the bullets are constant and have no upgrades available.
(But this gives me an idea for a new upgrade ;p)
