Awesome and good? Man, i'm on a roll! thanks.
IMPORTANT: Ive discovered a not so very awesome glitch wich coused Pico to run to the left side of the corridor in level one an get invunerable for an endless amount of time. I supose eating a cake coused it cause at the moment i was wondering off screen.
The game it self is not realy bad. The graphics and the art stile are outstanding. Level design is just great. But there are a few thing which i realy didint like.
For instance, the aiming system is just slow and clumsy. It's hard to aim at enemies which are below you or on a higher level of terrain. I think the reason you made it that way was to make the game more difficult though changing it to a mouse based aim would make it just too simple.
The music is very good. Im not in to Techno, D n B or any other type of such music but it fits the pace of the game well. P.S. I just love Paragon's music ^_^.
The verdict is : 9_ _ - nine with two mono rails under it just because of the glitches and slow and clumsy aim...
Yeah, i had the eating glitch happen to me once but i have no idea what actually causes it, i'll have to have to do some debugging later. The aiming system is not very good but you just gotta learn/make up some techniques for the different levels; in a lot of levels i just jump up repeatedly (to dodge bullets), tap down and shoot which seems to work in a lot of situations.
A lot of the gameplay didn't get tested and manipulated a lot since we were running really low on time, only had 2 weeks to program this whole thing from scratch.
Thanks for the review :D Maybe if enough people complain about the aiming i'll try to make it more smooth and easy.
Not bad, 4/5, especially for the 42 reference!
Really freakin' fun
And really freakin' hard! I like it. Fast paced music with fast paced action combined into smooth run 'n' gun. Excellent Pico Day submission!
I have experienced one bug though: sometimes after I kill the first monster door, Pico starts jumping up and down endlessly and I have to restart the game. It doesn't happen all the time, but I'd thought you'd like to know.
Thanks :D and continuous jumping you say? that's new, i'll take a note of it.
the game looks fun but as soon as i leave detention pica races off screen adn while i hear him firing when i hit s i don't see bullets and the monsters don't go down.
Weird; I'll look into, thanks.
