I am trying to develop a new Flash game every month in 2009, building on the infrastructure of the old ones each month. This is the second.

Tidal is a fast-paced shooter. Choose from one of three ships and try to survive 100 waves of enemies. Move with the mouse and fire with the left mouse button. P to pause, Q to quit, S to toggle SFX and M to toggle music. I suggest you play Normal Mode first to get introduced to how the game plays. Wild Mode is a harder randomized version.

Edit: Music muting bug fixed. Lives added - now you have 3 chances to make it through the onslaught. You can earn an extra life every 10,000 points, so keep that combo going.


Well Done

I liked how straightforward the mechanics were. You don't need fancy powerups/upgrades to make things engaging. You use some interesting graphics and sounds. Overall the presentation is tight. The variety in the enemies is good and definitely helps to keep things interesting. The high score submission is also a nice touch but I doubt I'll last long enough to make it onto to the leader boards hehe.


I never get tried of blowing up things!

Nice concept and graphic. Lovely gameplay.
Weird music and no option to mute it.
Still requires improvements.

It is almost pathetic that I can't fix the music muting bug. I will work on it tonight. Thanks.
