Loved it!!!

I loved this game! Great design, easy and smooth gameplay, and a nice story. I first played through and repaired teh ballooon ASAP but was dissapointed to find that there was no more of the game after it was repaired. So i started a new game and played as long as i could (and by "could" i mean until i got bored).

There were a few problems with this though:
#1 Too Easy
-The game was easy enough for you too play through without getting mad or sad about losing. But got too easy. After Day 3, You've encountered every enemy, and have most upgrades. Its boring to keep playing with the same exact enemies. At day 4 i had every weapon and its upgrade (even though i only used the best ones). At this time its just the same repetative thing over and over again.
-I also never lost HP. The only time i did was when i purposely ran into teh enemy crowd to see how much damage they could do (which was alot if u stayed in) but you would be healed fully within 10 seconds after u get teh final health machine.
#1 Solution:
-Incorporate more enemies, more upgrades, and more levels. How bout after you build your balloon, you get ready to take off, when a giant special monster comes out ready for a boss fight. Platforms appear and you go through a difficult battle. After you kill him, you get in ur balloon and take off, only to be shot down by stronger, different enemies in a new level. Not only does this solve difficulty, but also the repetitiveness of the same enemies.
-Also, you could add difficulty settings to give the enemies more attack and damage.
#2 Boomstick
-The boomstick had no purpose for me. It did do instakill but seeing as how it didnt do splash damage, it was practically useless since there were hordes of enemies coming at you.
#2 Solution
-Make the boomstick have splash damage, but with a much lesser damage. This allows it more of a purpose (hitting large numbers of enemies at once) but not making it do so much damage that it instakills and ruins the fun.
#3 Timeline Glitches
-There were times where rite after i got out of teh shop, the events on teh timeline would disapeer for a 15 hour ingame time-span.
-I also never got to see what round i was on because the Waves would never exceed XXX (30). It would end up showing back to wave XXVII (27) and then go up to XXX only to drop again. I Know that i was over round 50 but im disappointed i didnt get to know what i really got too. (I got to day 12 though).
#3 Solution
-Fix the glitches :D

I loved this game but ended up just finishing the balloon at day 12 because i was so bored. I ended it with:
$153,898 Onhand
$228,970 Overall
3,743 Enemies killed.

I loved teh game and i would love even more to see a sequel (prefferably if u fix what i ask, but its not like you'll listen to one person). Keep it up my friend!

Nice job!

I dont know if i did right, but it was very fast for me to finish the game. Instead of sleep, I keep taking down enemies and repairing my baloon. Well, "God helps who wakes up early" they say...
