Not bad

The ability to run into your own fired shots greatly hindered your score.

In fact it was a major reason i didn't like the game as much, it ruined it's potential.


Its a challenging game and I like it. I thought the music could do with a bit of an upgrade but maybe it was becase i kept dying too much! I think this game has potential and can become really good! One thing is that there is quite alot of enemies shooting at you which makes it hard but challenging! Good effort!!

Thank you =D


bring the Music element into more

Make different sounds when you destroy an enemy and have a beat in the background

just some help :)

ChinyKian responds:

I totally agree with you =D. Thanks for sharing your views.

Simple but nice

I had fun playing this game. The voice reminded me of HL: Portals, which I really really enjoyed (especially because of the voice).

In my eyes you could add some more powerups, maybe some boms or a shield or even a permanent weapon upgrade.

Or, if you want to develop this whole "Hacker" concept, add some more games, which you can play if you pass the test. (at the end you add all the points from the games to one highscore)


ChinyKian responds:

oooohh, interesting idea you have. Thanks for sharing =D.

Honestly not that enjoyable or memorable.

Kind of boring. There's nothing really there unless you can pass the first test because I can't or haven't, which brings me to my second point. Too much enemy fire. You might has well made a game where you went up against a rifle squad because that's what it felt like. There was also no real explanation of what power ups did.
The voice was also freaking annoying as hell.

ChinyKian responds:

Thanks for your comments, will definitely take them into consideration on my next game.
