Not responding?!

It is a pity that this is apparently no longer viewable on this website, but I can at least remember how good it was. It really created a world of its own where you could go and do anything you wanted. 3D stuff is rare on Newgrounds (or any other web original stuff) so this is a great use of it. I loved trying to get the aiming right as best as I could. It always struck me that artificialgames was one of the most underrated game series here. If you added more pizazz, I am sure this could be Daily Feature material.

Game Jacket

Game Jacket does not exist anymore so the game does not work.

Nicely done

It needs a reverse mouse mode though for us quadrant method flyers!

Brings me back.

The polygonal 3d graphics and the simple SFX brought be back, man, to Super NES, with Starfox. Anyone remember that? But I digress. The game was awesome, although not my favorite type I have to admit this game was awesome. Only played one level because I didn't have a great deal of time, in fact I have to rush this review.

Graphics: 10
Sound: 8
Fun: 10
Instructions: 9
Menu: 8
**Score: 9**

menu was cool but made me dizzy. the instructions could have added that you lost points based on how many shots you fired. Or maybe it was there and I missed. it.
Liked the game a lot. Nice job.

Thanks for the review CreepingDeath,

I have now removed the thing that decreases your score when you fire, it was primarily in there before as a performance contraint (hold your fire to save your fps).

Hope this change improves the game :D


this is really good

was this made with flash cs3 3d graphics? it's great and very addictive. You can handle 3d games so you should make more :)
I do have to give it a nine because every level looked the same.

Thanks for the comments and great score. The game was made thanks to Papervision, an API for programming 3D in flash 9, check it out if you are interested ;)
