EDIT: it DOES work guys, so quit saying it dosn't. I suggest LOW QUALITY settings for slow computers. It is STRONGLY suggested you read the controls. This game is really fun, by all accounts, if you just TAKE YOUR TIME to learn it. Cannot emphasize that enough.

TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS: for people having problem loading/running the game, update flash player and check their internet connections.For people having problem with load, also tell them to close and reopen NG flash's window, to restart loading.

Edit 2: OMG frontpage, kickass! If you like this game, help us out by submitting a recommendation to the "Action Games" collection, it would mean a lot to us! :D

The tutorial in the game will explain most of the controls, but here is a list to get you up to speed while it loads:

Quick controls:

"LEFT" & "RIGHT" ------move you around the circles
jumps between circles, when held adjust camera "up"
drops a mine ( if you have any )
"Z"---------------------- initiates "zoom" when adrenaline bar is full
"X"---------------------- initiates "shield" when adrenaline bar is full
"C"---------------------- switches between normal and landscape camera view
"A" ( after collision )--- launches hook ( if you've purchased it )
"S" ( after collision )--- launches gust ( if you've purchased it )

You're just an ass. While the game is repetitive and lacks upgrades it's still okay. Though I do wish it was more advanced and interesting.

Boring and repetitive.

The game lacks potential.

You do the same thing over and over again. You jump from platform to platform and collide with the opponent till either you or he turns around. Then either of you dies and you start over again.

The upgrades are very limited. The power and speed ones seem almost trivial, seeing as it will only let you go quicker from one place to another and knock your opponent further back.
Of course this is in order to kill him faster, but that's my point.
You just get to another opponent all the more faster.

This is an endless grind for the super-upgrades which let you kill your enemies with one hit under certain circumstances.
And then what? Then you use those upgrades to insta-kill every single enemy in all the remaining levels?

As I said, it's boring and repetitive. It lacks a goal, it lacks potential, it lacks fun.
Basically, it lacks everything.

Do you know what the definition of "game" is?
I'll enlighten you:
"A game is a structured activity, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool."
This game didn't entertain me.
Neither did it teach me anything at all.

So, all in all, I think I can conclude that this is not a real game.
It's some boring grind-o-matic machine which is disguised as what vaguely resembles a game.


(And before people start giving me bad ratings for this review... God damn it, this is what the reviews are for. You don't just say "This is good" or "This is crap". You give a REASON for your opinion - and that is what I did.)

TheMillz responds:

You did give a reason and explain well. I agree with your points in some respects. But there's always a constructive way to go about things. You say it's not a "real game" because you did not have fun. You didn't. Does this invalidate the fun experienced by others? And who's to say there are not other qualifications to what makes something a "game". Perhaps being purely entertaining, whether you like it or not, if you were distracted by it to some degree.

Then again that is just one argument. There are nearly unlimited persuasive techniques that could be applied to anything. Meh, I'm tiered...
