Eol Catcher

Share Collapse

Author Comments

EDIT 2: Rotation is selectable now
EDIT: Fixed the music issue it should loop infinite times. Working on the lose condition and the movement.

This is my first attempt for a game its called eol catcher its like asteroids but without them.

Basically what you have to do is use your spaceship to catch some Eols, which are floating thingies that... float(?) in outer space try to get as much as possible.

Also i want YOU to tell me in the comments what you did not like about the game.

Use the left and right keys to steer, the up key to accelerate, and the down key to deccelerate

The stars are random :D (Ignore that last part)

Also the fact that some eols dissapear makes it harder

i was so amused by the easiness of the game,except when the eols dissapered,but i really liked it,the music was great,gameplay is good,and i was playing for about an hour before realizing my score kept resetting everytime i hit 1000 points,i guess its just me,but i loved the game,so make more

Is that a 10?
:O im surprized, no comment but thanks.


its not bad for a first attempt. but the music... eh it gets annoying quickly and when it ends... it ends... also there's no skill involved... just kinda fly aimlessly around collecting these things. theres no levels, or goal or real end of the game... i just got bored playing after the all of about 75 seconds.... but like i said for a first game its pretty good. ive seen a lot that suck. conversly, im not into making games because well.... mine would suck too so more power to you. its not horrible.... it just needs more work

exzeta responds:

I know...
Ill improve it later.

Makes a good starting point

Not bad for a first attempt, but it does have flaws. First off, the functional part of the play button is only the white border at the top. The physics is something that bugs me though. Space is frictionless, so the ship shouldn't be slowing down on its own. Furthermore, if the ships engines are in the back it shouldn't be turning on its nose. Fix those and add a lose condition so it doesn't go on forever and you may have something.

exzeta responds:

The play button functional part its not only that white border. the is unclickable.

It had a lose condition but it did not worked.

Ill try to make it work.

Great effort feels unfinished...

For a first flash submission, I must say that you should be very proud of yourself! I rated the game low because it felt like there were so many other elements you could have added to spice up the game (like enemies or power ups or some for of physics or something). I'm sure you will continue to retool this game and hopefully come back even better!

exzeta responds:

Well at the beginning it had enemies but the "enemies" didnt work. There was some kind of error in the hit test

First attempt

Cool for your first game.
So, there's no way you can win and no way you can lose. So it really is not worth putting on here.
