I always get to this part and never know what to say. This community is so awesome, and I make games just for you guys. I probably won't have time to respond to all of the comments, but I really do read them all so please leave your thoughts. This series has been a lot of fun to work on so far, and I'm sure I'll make another one, so feel free to make suggestions too. My goal for the next installment will be to break into multiplayer, so you can expect that!

P.S. Extra special thanks to Waterflame for the custom trax!! Check out his music, it totally roxors!! :3

P.P.S. If you think the game is too easy, there's a hard mode and leaderboards on Candystand!

ADDED VERSION 2 - SEP 30 - There was a resizing problem on some websites. It didn't happen here, but I fixed it and am uploading nonetheless.

Entertaining for awhile

Beat it in half an hour, fun while it lasted though.

Cool, but...

Now, I really liked your other game, ether cannon! It had nice smooth game play, etc.. Then I saw this game, and waited for something new, with a whole bunch of add-ons! And, you did...kind of...

I think that you made the effects a tiny bit too fancy...too many particles and such. Also, this game didn't have too many new things...The base concept didn't seem like a big seemed more like a minor detail.

All in all, it's still a good game...but I still like ether cannon a lot more, because I think you just lost that "simple but FUN" touch...idk...
Good work though!


BTW: Could you PM me about how exactly you got all those particles to work so fast? I'm assuming you're using Flash CS3?

Kajenx responds:

You can turn down the particles in the options menu if they bug you. Believe it or not I actually had twice as many before. LOL

This really does play a lot differently from Ether Cannon. It's less Arcade oriented. The next next one will have both flavors and more, though.

The particle system has a whole thread dedicated to it in the flash forum. It just takes lots of optimizing to get it to work.

But it needs some sort of save as it is to big to play through all at once

It's an absolutely astounding game. I couldn't stop myself playing it until I got really far and then died. I really love this game. *Favourited!*
