Race to find the main brain and destroy this mine for good!

I started making this game early last year, I was finally able to actually finish it. It has a sonic type feal to it. There is a finally boss which will probably be tricky to beat; i wont tell you the secret to beating him. Hope you enjoy it....



Rated 2 / 5 stars

Didn't like it

The buggy often got stuck on pieces of scenery, and the thing just isn't suited for precision platforming.

Awesome is the word to describe this :D

This reminded me alot of Iron Turtle, and I just loved that game. However, this game has been improved, and it was alot longer than I thought. I played for like 18 Minutes - and it was just fun to play it, and watch the amazing background art at the same time!

I just love the way you changed the environement a few times, like, first it was in a factory, and then there were Mushrooms all over the place...

A very wonderful game with incredible art! I had great fun playing this game. Thank you for making such an awesome game that everyone can enjoy, and even with a Boss in the end. You simply rule, and I hope you make more of these games :D

I recommend this game to everyone. Please don't only look at the Controls, but also at the beautiful art, gameplay and the feeling of joy while playing the game. Don't rate this game bad if you think it's frustrating!

*SPOILER* And for those of you who are struggling on the LAST BOSS, read the following:

- Move to the most Right-side or Left-side of the Arena, and make the Smash Machine, smash you. By doing that, just stand still on a place, and when you hear a noise, quickly move away from the Machine, to avoid the Smash
- Whenever the Machine smashes on a spot, where the Boss isn't, it will open!
- When the Smash Machine opens after hitting the ground, quickly jump to the side of it, hold Left+Right, and land on the Smash Machine.
- Once the Machine starts going up, quickly jump up before it closes, hold Left+Right, fly to the Boss' direction, and when you are about to hit the Boss' glass, quickly remove your finger from Left/Right, and make the Player hit the Boss's glass, cracking it a bit
- Do this several times (I think twice on both of the sides)
- And keep in mind, that if you get smashed by the Smash Machine, you'll have to do everything all over again (the Boss), so stay cautious!

I hope this helps all those who need help on the Last Boss. I used about 5 Minutes to figure out how to beat the boss, but it was worth it. Don't miss this game, and please make it have a score above 4.00
