Finished my latest flash game. :3 Choose between Adventure Mode and High Score Mode! Beat bosses and get a high score! Shoot with A, hold it down to charge up a super shot.
The look and feel...
... was very nice, so that's for me a 10 / 5
- you should add some more enemies you can actually shoot at.
- slightly more "fancy" background graphics would fit better.
Nevertheless, it's a very great shooter/avoider you made there!
why did you bother including a cannon if you never use it?? add some more enemies and a nicer reward for kill live drop or weapon upgrades maybe?
Not too difficult, not too easy. Right where it should be. Very nice. For the most part, it seemed everything worked right. There was a few parts where I died for absolutely no reason. Never figured that one out. At least it only happened twice, and didn't screw up my game. I love the idea, but I think more enemies should have been destructable. Like the floating eyes and the mines. Those seemed to get annoying fast. Anyway, yeah. Quite a fine idea there. Love how it turned out.
And that's not just me being undecided about this game. I think its own genre is also quite undecided. As mentioned by an earlier comment, the game sort of crossed between a shooter and an avoider. It's not a bad idea entirely, but it does seem that they take turns to dominate parts of the game. It's basically an avoider till you get to the bosses. Kind of like it hasn't made up its own mind yet what it wants to be.
The game is quite well made, albeit a little short. The obstacles were pretty straight forward and there was some good variation with the enemies.
I felt the gameplay was a little on the slow side with the movement. I was quite relieved when the game speed sped up nearing the end. Thats where the speed really needs to be to keep up the excitement level. But once the speed did go up though, the movements became quite inadequate because they were so slow, particularly the backward movement. I understand the slowness when the ship is moving forward, but come the boss battle at the very end, it was ridiculously slow moving that I couldn't avoid the boss charging towards me.
Pick up the game pace, and make the controls more responsive. Also, I think you can fully expand on the whole 'avoider/shooter' concept. Think of a way to completely blend the two instead of having one and then the other in different parts of the game. Like the first bit with all those moving wheels, why not just put enemies in there as well? Make that gun you've given more useful in the entire game, not just for the boss fights.
I do like the change of direction midway through the game. I think you should expand on that concept more.
Overall, not too bad. Not too exciting either, but I think you can really take this idea and beef it up a little with more enemies, more action.
Very challenging, very well designed, all-around great!
