Shoot The Aliens 2

Author Comments

I created this game in school in ICT lessons, I have been constantly changing and improving the game for about a year. It started with a small tutorial to which I added graphics, modified some of the code to create difficulty levels, and added a menu system. My next idea is to integrate a leaderboard. Feel free to offer suggestions. Any help is appreciated.

Edit (24th November 2009): Added a leader-board and improved collision detection.

hm pretty boring

No audio and the graphics were pretty bland. I got bored of it fast

Overall fine, Hit Detection could be better

Hit detection could be better on this. It seemed to register when the shots hit the front of the ship, but if you passed through a shot from the side (i.e. "slid" into it from the left or right) it didn't detect you as being hit.

thanks, i have now fixed that

Addictive :-D

This game is pretty awesome and addictive. I like the fact that you don't have lives and your score resets when you get hit, meaning you can spend a long time without realising.

2 tips:
1. Try to redraw the explosions, bullets ect. (basicly anything done by just using two colours). That will make it seem far more sleek.
2. Get some music from the Audio portal. But make sure it is a great piece nothing too repetative. Never got for the 20 second repeated melody. Music is one of the important factors of a good game, it gives it feeling and exitment. Also try and get some explosion noises and shot sounds, to give it that extra bit.

If you don't get this submitted do what and say (and any other suggestions) and resubmit, or if it gets on, do it anyway. I will be checking.

i am nearly finished making an option to add audio for explosions, deaths, shots.

Not bad.

Not bad...Really.

Is fine but...

You need to make it more fun, add more kind of aliens and fix the random spawn becuse they spwned on me and blowed me 3 consecutive times, also you can add a certain boss when you reach a X ammount of points or change the level to new graphics ships, also a ugrade tree for your own ship to expend for the points could help a lot.

samdiaz responds:

cool thanks, this is a project for me as my first flash game, ive been tweaking it for about a year now. I get most of the info from online tutorials so progress is pretty slow but i would like to get more advanced so i can do things like what you said. I once had a try at upgrades for your ship but it went wrong so I need to read up on that.
