After many years of working their Punkin(a cross between a watermelon and pumpkin) patch, Cletus and Jug decided to have a little fun. Cletus set up his sling shot, Jug readied his gun, and began to shoot the night away. You play as Jug, known to be the best shot in the swamp, can you equal his high score of 250(highest score possible: 300)?

(This is my first attempt at a flash game, please play the game before voting. Voting and reviews are gladly appreciated.) Enjoy Punkin shoot.

Not too bad for a first go,but still need some work

It was simply drawn, and the audio was pretty simple too.But it played quite well. But was quite hard to get any points. Would've been nice if the pumpkin's order was random though.

But it was a very good beginner game, hopefully you improve and learn

I have learned a great deal, a lot of which has gone into the sequel. It is somewhat sad, how bad this is compared to the new one(yet to be released), in my opinion it has improved much farther then I would have expected. I am practicing on my drawing skills with a mouse, slowly getting better. Thanks for the review.

Too sketchy

I think that you need to slow the game down slightly, as when the pumpkins fly across the screen, you have only a split second to react and take them down before the round is over.

Secondly, you need to learn how to spell Pumpkin, as it just looks backward if you spell it like rednecks pronounce it. Most people in the civilised world look down their noses at people who can't spell a commonly used word like pumpkin correctly ;)

Perhaps the game mechanics could do with an overhaul - throw the pumpkins in the air from maybe 3 or 4 locations, so they go up and down, without arcing across the screen all together. Maybe have a set number of pumpkins that the guy wants Cletus to shoot, before you can move on to the next day, otherwise the pies just won't taste right.

I have heard a great deal about the the pumpkins moving too fast, which is fixed in the new update hopefully.

In response to how to spell pumpkin, most civilized people would put some hidden purpose as to why they spelled it as punkin instead of pumpkin. It is attributed to my grandfather who is 87, playing a large role in my life. Born and breed in Arkansas, he enjoys hic jokes because it reminds him of how dimwitted some people were when he was growing up. At the end of the next version I will add a short credit section stating it is for him.

You read my mind on multiple locations for incoming targets, however I did not even think about having a set number of pumpkins you had to hit before you could advance. I might have to add this, and besides Cletus is a horrible cook(explained more in the new version.)

Thanks for the review.

Visuals: very basic, not very well drawn, but the animation was smooth thankfully. The objects moved by too fast for there to be much skill involved and they should be slowed down and the rounds could stand to be made longer. Also there's something amiss with the scoring I heard about 10 pumpkins being hit, no kitties, and I only got 80 points

Audio: what you have is good, but there is definitely more that can be added to this background music would be nice for starters

Overall: nice concept, could stand to be improved upon. I really liked playing it though, it's very addicting

In the new version I have extended the round length(funny one round is as long as or longer then the total amount of frames in this one). Sorry about the score issue, I accidentally messed up the action script on the projectiles which is fixed in the new one, and I've spent a good deal of time finding bugs after I add new cotent. Just stick around if you like this simple game, the new one should be out in a few days. Thanks for the review.

Not great...

Game was far to quick paced to have any skill in playing it. It wasn't to bad though. Presentation was nice and sound was used to good effect. Instructions and menu was also good. Try and improve game play next time. Keep it up.

Kind regards -

I'm currently working on it today, the new version might be released within the next couple of days depending on how long it takes me to finish the rounds. I had planned on adding a shop(which I did) but not to the extent that I want(issues with action script, or I would have to create many duplicates of the rounds involving what I have in the shop, just taking up wasted space) also added even more content but I do not want to spoil it. Thanks for the review.

The idea of the game is pretty good. The introductions are simple and very helpful. They tell me everything I need to know about the game.

Well, the gameplay... the mouse moves a bit too slow and the pumpkins are way too fast. First time I played it I didn't hit a single pumpkin (well, except for the cats ^^). After playing some rounds I was able to hit more pumpkins, but I still think it's too fast.

The graphics are decent. Nothing too amazing, but not bad either.
You should have added some Halloween type of background music, though.

Yeah I have to get used to that, couple of years ago I played a great deal of computer shooters, thus my mouse was adjusted to move quickly across the screen, so naturally it was adjusted for me to have a challenge(leaving a good deal of people to not like it for this reason) something I won't overlook again.

I will have to find some Halloween music for the background, as well as a few tutorials to improve what I know. If I can ever get hold of a tablet my graphics will improve, till then I'm practicing with the mouse. Thanks for the review
