Looks good, take a look at this for saving and loading:
needs more enemies,needs to be longer,and it should have levels! are you going to make a new one?
Yes but it is going to be a while before i will have finished it. My new years resolution is to finish it though! :D
Coming along well
The controls are smooth, the physics work nicely, and it looks like this is going to be a very fun game. Some suggestions I have for the final product include a way to attack (unless it's a hop & bop, but some other attack would be a welcome addition), additional interactive elements if you think you can use them (you got switches so far, that's good), and a neat presentation that lays out the levels, menus and stuff nicely (although I'm sure you're already working on that).
Not much to say, really! Just give it an identity to make it unique and interesting, and I'm sure it will be great. I must say that I'm intrigued to see how this will end up.
Thanks, I won't be making an attack action for this game (my Metroid flash will though), it'll be more based on puzzles and dodging opponents ( however I might do a 2D shooting scroller involving ship when travelling between two of the areas during the game). Although I haven't made the menu layout yet, I'll be going for a more futuristic layout (the protagonist is a robot), I like Dead Space's colour scheme so that's a potential influence.
As for interactive elements, I'll be adding more hazard possibilities and objectives for each stage.
This is good
It's a very good game. I think you should put the controls in game to though. I mean have a main menu for: Play/ Instructions/ Music... that kind of stuff. Unless it's only not in because this is the beta, if so, sorry for wasting your time XD
Cheers, in the finished product the instructions and options will be on the main menu but maybe also in the Pause menu in case anyone forgets the controls or wants to change music settings.
Even more improved
Obstacle wise it is better. Seems a little easier to control too. Simple, but more complex than the other version (shurikens were nice). Maybe on the different levels with different themes you can have something different than a shuriken as a deadly object, like ice spikes on an ice stage, lava shooters on a lava stage, maybe even add some falling bolders to the jungle stage. They don't have to do insta-death things, just take a certain amount of health.
Maybe you can add some music to a pause menu if it makes it in the final (or maybe just have the stage music continue while paused). Possibly you could add MINI GAMES!!!! Just something to do besides the game if you feel like it. You could also have a few puzzle-oriented things that you need to do to progress. These are just a couple of ideas and just some food for thought. All in all, so far, so good.
Thanks for the review.
When the real thing is released instant death occurences will be less frequent, mostly being replaced with a decrease in health then a jump back from the hazard.
The idea of mini games is good but it's the way i'd be able to implement them which is the problem.
