This was primarily a game that I used to learn AS3. I didn't have any plan going into it (hence the "improv game") and just kinda started programming. A few weekends later I ended up with this. It's not great, but it's a fun distraction and I learned some AS3, so that's good enough for me. It works well on new machines, but can drag a little on older ones. I'm not sure how to optimize performance much more though - suggestions certainly welcome. :)
Feedback: Thanks for the feedback so far everyone! I actually haven't played Resistance 2 - sounds like they stole my difficulty name. ;) I definitely was't aiming for #1 slots for the day or anything, so the score so far is perfectly fine and probably accurate. I'm a little concerned that it didn't load for someone - not sure what was up with that.
In any case, thanks for the warm welcome to Newgrounds - 'tis my first Flash game, but won't be the last. And in the future they'll be a little more than a quick, short distraction game. :)
