Has potential.


Not bad but kinda repetative. Try including odds for more fun :D. Good luck!

Pretty cool...


That was an interesting premise for a game,
not too much to do though.

Still you did a fairly good job with the actionscript,
it kind of feels like a bastard version of the virtual horse races machines.

Good job on the drawings too, could do a bit better on the sound though.
Kudos on the interface, as well as making it bilingual.

Muchas gracias,

thanks, i got the idea from the virtual horse races machine on GTA SA. i know its kinda boring after the 3rd bet.
for the sounds i dont kno WTF is wrong but every wav mp3 or any audio file gets F#@&ed up when i import them.


It's ok, the spanish is kinda annoying.
Its not something you could play more then a couple of times before you get kinda bored sorry.
5 for animation and stuff though.

a bug i found

no matter which roach you bet on if it wins you gain 5x you bet even if it was 3 to 1 odds, i bet 1 dollar and gained 5 win it won. i dont know about the 50 cent or 25 cent bets.. so it might be in the dollar code. other than that nice work

DoomedChi responds:

thats not a bug its says clearly on the instructions: "every bet pays 5/1", also you can only place 1 bet on 1 roach only
every time u press the 0.25, 0.50, 1.00 bet it cancel the previous bet
