Welllll, gack. Sorry but something about this game is really rather "gack"
First the good: I must admit, the voice acting wasn't all that bad except for some "grainy" issues. I also like how the rukes got flipped around close to the end as pink objects had reversed scores.
Now the Bad: Your is quite possibly the worst organized game I've ever seen. As evidence to this right at the beginning of the game i clicked on the shop and found only two buttons worked (or maybe there simply were only two buttons and the rest was decoration?) I could buy the new boom-stick (which was no improvement over the current) and I could get back to shooting. But Once i did, it seemed I'd reached the final level and had to start over. After retrying and clicking the right buttons, I could move one, but then I was told the shop was open now? wasn't it already open? there are several other things like that that really hurt the experience.
Way too difficult. Remember "Duck Hunt". How slow the birds were. That should be a first level. The game starts slow, and easy to ease the player into the controls, then it gets harder to test his skills. Your game expects that I have the point and shoot abilities of a 4 year Halo vet as soon as the game starts. There's Challenge, then there's brutality-murdering-impossible. Your game is the latter.
Glitch! your game has some serious mouse tracking issues that need looking into. Also, are you aware that at one point, during an intermission, we can shoot the pumpkin juice sitting on the fence, loose ten points, and gain no identifiable effect. Why? to trick newbies into lowering a score?
No identifiable effect. When I bought that new gun (and went to negative 30) i found that i stile had to shoot single shots, still had no spread even though it was a shot gun, and still had trouble hitting pumpkins. Why buy the gun at all? Whats the point? Also, I can fail at every one of Cletus's tasks and not die or anything, but if i click the "ignore" button, I get pastried to death? I understand it was a joke, but just interupts the flow of the game.
Liar. Your friend says he'll throw something different every time, but he doesn't, he just throws more of the same. Sure eventually pink versions come out but those aren't something different, they're just things pretending to be different. And that one of the biggest problems, I got bored shooting the same things all the time.
Recommendations: Mix it Up. Make different backgrounds to shoot against, make ore things to shoot (and none of that pink version crap). Get crazier guns, and crazier rewards. The longer a game changes the more I am likely to play it.
Upgrades & Power ups. Games like this are always much more fun when i shoot a special target and get rewarded for it. This would make the game so much more interesting rather than gain-point lose-point objects. Also, If i buy a better gun in the shop, it better be a better gun.
Clean it up. Your graphics as of now are only functional. Try making things look nicer, and more refined. Your targeting reticule is an ugly silver triangle. Why not cross hairs, or maybe some focusing lights, maybe a laser pointer, the possibilities are endless.
Difficulty. I already said this game was hard, but you've said that you like challenge. Well a lot of us don't. Most of us enjoy easy. If you want it to be hard, make a hard setting but have the regular game be easy or normal.
it seems like a lot I'm sure but I'm not being an ass, I'm just saying what I see
