My first choice was between 'faster laser' and mortar. Faster laser turned out to actually be double laser. The buttons stayed on the screen, grayed out, until I finally died at 52 kills, and I never got another weapon choice. I have Flash V Win So....yah. It was pretty fun other than that!

loved the 3d graphics. very new kind of game for newgrounds and actually pretty fun to play. but dont stop improving. keep up the good work


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Dude, I've never seen anything like this before in flash! That was great! If you programed that from scratch, great job. A few gameplay issues though. Your health regenerates way to slowly, maybe it should regen faster if you're near the citadel or something. Also, it's a little repetative, but otherwise, great game!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not bad at all...

I played the game and it's kinda great! Grafhics are preety good, but there is no game story... You have to do the same all the time-kill them, before the kill you or destroy tower. (and there is no sky(this doesn't matter))! 8/10

That was a pretty amazing...

display of 3-d graphics programming. Far better than I could even fathom to understand right now. And extra bonus points for resembling my old lover "Quake 3 Arena Demo" :)

The control was very frustrating. It should be tightened up quite a bit.
Maybe some levels? First kill 10 (choose a weapon), then 20 (choose another weapon), then 50 (choose a third) etc. If you were to go this route, a way to heal should be included.

Anyway, as much as I feel this game is lacking, I still feel obligated to beat my score of 35. Go make an update!!!

nice try

I cannot stop spinning


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Well it wasn't really fun.

Things you need:
A cross hair.
Be able to move from 1st person to third.
Be able to upgrade.

Things that need to be fixed:
The land kept disappearing.
Add a sky.

Other then that it was rather boring.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


the enemies did the same thing, so it was really easy to kill them, I made it to around 40 some kills before I got bored

perhaps make the enemies a little more strategic
hp regen is a biggie
the ground kept disappearing on me

however, you made this from scratch...
which is pretty freaking impressive...
for that

Thats is AWESOME!
It needs a cross hair though, and the width could stand to be wider.
But otherwise amazing job.
Keep up the good work. 5/5 10/10

kick A_ _

this is as great an old 64 game. you could probably make a Zelda game of your own.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not bad.. not bad at all

Well... from scratch! Thats cool! Well anyway these are the things that should be added to the game:

Your tank is visible- lets you control better
More upgrades, yes, a lot more upgrades!
Add sky. It boring without one.

Anyway the game is not really addictive but its fun. The reason why i never complained about the ground disappearing is because about 99% of action fighting games using the WASD controls have this problem. Even big, big games also have this problem. So a smaller game with this problem is not such a big deal.

good qualities

Im rather biased, being involved with the development of this game. Therefore i will vote a neutral score.

However i would like to point out a few things:

1. This game is the first version in a series of games that will be based on this engine. Each game will improve on the last, and will introduce new game modes and plots. That means that you can CONTRIBUTE your ideas by giving comments here.

2. The game captures a retro feeling that is rarely seen in flash games now adays. AND its a 3D game! In other words, this game is rather unique.

3. Its next to impossible to create an immersive 3d game in flash. I feel that Bodhi was suprisingly successful in his first attempt. There are really difficult limitations to overcome as a developer, mainly that you only have absolute mouse coordinates (as opposed to relative). In addition to the more obvious performance limitations of the flash player.

Ill stop here. Please considder these facts when you review and vote. Thanks!

Very well done!

Very well made. it's the first 3-D game i've played on newgrounds besides the crappy DOOM remake.

1. I found it difficult to target my opponents
2. Congrats to you for creating an engine for this sort of game
3. I also noticed that of you put your mouse on any side of the screen it rotated too much... i would suggest a crosshair that moves with the mouse instead of the scrolling screen. (Note): If you decide to use this idea please put in a pause menu and make it possible to move your mouse out of the screen.

4. I actually found this one quite funny....BUT! you shouldn't insult people for killing only 5 enemies lol "That sucks".
5. The graphics ARE good but i think they could be worked on quite a bit.
6. I was joking about #4 you should really try to insult people more Haha.
