Soldier, We have lost contact with your platoon. We can only assume the worst, and that we will never hear from them again. We have picked up your life signal, and have noticed you are somewhere in the swamp region of the Kragolyte planet. Thousands of our men are dying out there, you must continue to fight. You have a new agenda; reach the alien spaceport and intercept their mothership. Do not look back, stay alive at all costs. We fear this may be the last saga in our long battle for independance. You're human kind's last hope.

Rated 4 / 5 stars


A very solid game overall with only a few small things to imrove on. And I don't know what everyone else is talking about, I barely found any glitches and cartaintly not enough to affect teh overall score on this game. My only complaint is that the jump sensitivity isnt so high. You know, the way how u touch the jumpo button and hold it for a second and hes jumps liek 8 times. I think that could be more realisitic and les troublesome to jump over gaps with that.

Still, Great job and keep up the good work! :)

Im sorry man but your game is fucked up!

You have potential to have a 10 on this game, but its EXTREMLY bugged! Gliches up the wazoo that severly hinder the game play. Good concept, sound wasnt to bad, but the graphics were half good & half bad (sharp landscape and such, but incomplete backrounds in places) I said, glitchy. I just cant give a good score on any game that isnt stable enough to play! And I ran into a glitch that read about in some of the other reviews: the grenade one- I started shooting off one of my guns then tried to switch to the standard pulse rifle and instead, the guy started throwing grenades non-stop whenever I hit the space bar for any of the switched guns until I was @ 0, and then into the negative numbers! But if that wasnt enough, they WOULD NOT do any damage- so I died! Stuff like this really pisses me off even for someone who seems o show promise, I dont know, mabey if you just fix the glitches or something-

Its nicce but need polishing

Played on hard.
Its fun.
Nice graphics, decent sounds.
Nice maps..
nice animations
the character is well made, but is a weakling.
A lot of the gore was unnecessary, could use less.

Hit detection need polishing.. the green "spits" often hit when they obviously didnt.

The game is hard enough, get rid of the limited lives.

why does the pulse rifle have a range THAT limited (like, 5 meters)?
If you want to make the first boss weak point hard to reach, make it accessible only from the top. Otherwise, the only way to damage bosses is shooting at point-blank range.. not fun.

Even on low quality, it lags a LOT. OMG, so much lag!

The controls are sloppy; the jump command tend to make our guy jump 2-3 times when we wanted only once. (remap the jump key to "spacebar" and put grenades on Q or E.
Or when we run foward, and stop pressing the button, he doesnt stop running for a good distance.

I dont see the point of "where you point you shoot" since this is a platformer. The bullets should go straight in the direction you point. and impact anything in that line.

Many of the stuff we pick up dont mention its role.. or its name.. or what it does.. we gotta guess a lot. Need in-game info, like "found ammo" or "found key"

There should be some kind of armor.

The "shark" ennemy is too strong, it can eat away 50% of life in a second or so, and you just have a weak unwieldy knife that only hit in front of you..

For some reason i could see some white/semitransparent texture when i was in the "glass tunnel", and my pointer was making it vanish.

The second boss was overpowered. That, and the lag, makes an impossible fight.

But if you can fix only one thing, fix the lag, the rest is minor in comparison.

oh.. the music is kinda nice, but unfitting to the atmosphere.

Hey Grant, this is Brian.

I think all that worked payed off, honestly. The graphics, animation, and effects were definitely well done, and it's obvious you put a lot of heart and imagination into it.

Anyway, the levels seemed pretty long, actually. The game was a good length.
However, there were a few flaws. For instance, the mech glitched out on me once (it stopped moving), which made me restart the whole game. Also, there were a few jumping glitches, but for the most part, it was pretty clean.

One more thing: The bosses were BADASS! The final boss was the coolest, in my opinion.

Can't wait to get the scoop on the next BOA project,

I loved the game and everything is stated in how i rated it above but one thing that pissed me off... You know when you go and try to catch that big rock guy with green stuff but he gets away on a ship, and you have to go back... I didn't, I didn't even go passed the arrows where they pointed backwards but it decided to put my under the game window and thus i couldn't play :P. Guess that teachs me for not listening to the guy.
