R-Type Troubles

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is a LITTLE flash I made on the simple question of why ships on the game series "R-Type" are destroyed by touching anything. It's really to give you guys something new. I am at work at MULTIPLE big flash projects (AND a clay animation) so I might not submit anything for a while.

Enjoy it, guys!

IREM is the creator of R-Type. I am not.

glad you liked it!

Funny, but needs a few improvements.

With that said, I'll go into detail. Graphically, the mechanic was decent, but with segmented body parts; don't completely outline the arm and leg parts at the elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles. The actual ships are one of those instances where sprites could have made it better. Soundwise, for something with a low filesize, the quality is above-average and the acting is good. As I said before, I found this to be pretty damn funny.

What I do like:
-Underused subject. Note: I don't have a beef with video game flash as long as they are good.
-Small filesize
-Good sound quality and voice acting
-Good lip sync and the facial expression at the end.

What I didn't like:
-Actual R-Type Sprites could have helped.
-The arm and leg segments need a bit of work.

Overall: Here's an Eight out of Ten for spoofing an underappreciated series of space shooters. Plus, it's about time that IREM got the recognition that they sorely need.

RecD responds:

hey, thanks. I also believe I have an idea for a sequel that I may be putting up soon. I'm working on making the limbs better, too. just got mah wacom :)

Sweetness bra sweetness!

funny. deserves at least a 3.71 not a 1.96

RecD responds:

well, thanks mock!

This Is Not A game Though

What are you looking for in a game?
The two main things we look for when evaluating a game are:
-Is it fun?
-Is it easy to learn and get into quickly with minimal frustration?
If a game meets these two criteria we're usually very interested in it and are even willing to work with the developer to help improve graphics, sound, or other areas if needed. If the game does not meet these two criteria and can't be easily adapted to meet them then we're probably not going to be interested. It's all about the gameplay!
this is not a game though but interesting

RecD responds:

um...yeah...it isn't a game. But thanks for the high rating and thinking its interesting!

Not bad

This was pretty good for a beginner,the animation wasn't fantastic but with the way you put the sound effects and the concept of the flash it was pretty funny and overall a nice flash short so keep up the good work.

RecD responds:


Long ones are soon to come.
