could have had more thought put in

this game could have had more thought and just looked like a reverse of the falldown game that can be found on graphing calculators but the shield was a new idea compared to other similar games that i have seen.
the meteors do look like Cocoa puffs lol.. i didn't get that far..... cause i thought it would just be the same thing.

Not sure you read the description.. speed challenge.. with just a few hours to make it, not easy to make a game in that time


Quite fun for being made in such a short time, however the meteors sort of look like Cocoa Puffs falling from the sky. You might want to use different sprites for larger/smaller meteors, and probably make them gray. XD Also, throwing in some music from the Audio Portal might've been nice. :)

Nutter666 responds:

those weren't sprites, I drew them.. from scratch. and how often is rock grey?

yeah music would have been nice.. and i'll add some when i get chance.. but I had to hit the deadline first


this game is just good. However there's a lot of room for improvement like adding music and sounds. Also you could add small explosion graphics for when you crash against a meteor. You could add other power-ups like slow down the meteor shower, a beam of laser to clear some of the meteors; there are just a few ideas if you're interested.
In overall this game is good as it is now but it could be a lot better.

Good for a time challenge, now improve...

My suggestions:

1) be SURE to hide the mouse. It's not hidden and it's very distracting
2) Since it's just side-to-side, better to use keys instead.
3) It would be nice if the shield meter was more obvious (graphic instead of numeric)
4) Now add levels, sound, etc.

Nutter666 responds:

i'd agree that keyboard would be better.. but mouse control was part of the contest rules

Nothing special

This game isn't bad at all since it was made in a few hours, but i don't think it will be a 'Daily Feature'.
