Hello NGers!

My first submission and also my first flash.
left and right arrow keys to rotate
space to fire, but be careful, your shots will bounce back at you!
Eat 5 projectiles and you will die

Currently, there is no preloader and no restarting mechanism so if you die, you may have to manually reset the flash. Oh and collision detection is a bounding box so you'll probably eat a few projectiles which you might not think should of hit you

Credits go out to this site which more or less taught me flash
flash/tutorials/as3withfl ashcs3/
and this site for being an awesome place to find sound files

Also anyone know any good as3 tutorial sites? I'm hoping to improve my flash skills

Kinda fun, ubt you definitely need a replay button so you dont have to completely reload the game each time.

Good concept, but needs lots of work still.

This flash has pretty decent potential. However, there are five things that I think should be addressed.

1. ADD A TITLE SCREEN AND MAIN MENU!! I know this may be obvious, but every game should have them. This one doesn't. I lagged and got game over the first time I loaded it.

2. The collision detection should be fixed. There weren't any bullets anywhere near me, and I got hit (not by my own bullets either)

3. Fix the life system. Why only five hits till game over? Make it more like ten. Also, perhaps three lives (ten hits each) would make the game a bit more enjoyable.

4. Add a "Return to Main Menu" button on the game over screen. I get kind of irritated when I have to 'X' out of the flash and reload it manually. And I'm sure other people do, too.

5. Back to the death scenario. Pick one phrase or the other. It's a bit unnecessary to use both "Game over" and "You lose". Better yet, try using "You lose' when you lose your first and second lives, and "Game over" when you lose your last life.

Keep us up to date as you fix these issues.

good way

I liked the game its quite fun and challenging.
You have to get a preloader or put a play button, thats very important, check newgrounds flash tutorials, there you will learn how to make buttons.
its a pity cause the game isnĀ“t so bad.
looking foward to see this again with some upgrades.
