April & Booster

This is April & Booster vs Ultra Fleet of the Havoc Elite Armada.
Inhale small enemies n bop em out at bigger guys.
It came from a few different ideas, firstly that I hate bullet hell shooters. They are fucking stupid.
Second: I love the Suck Cannon from Ratchet & Clank, I think it's the best idea for a weapon ever and I want a game that's all about that.
Also I wanna make a lovely game where everyone is boundlessly happy like a 5-year-old, but I didn't want it to feel forced like some crappy Dreamworks sequel, but more natural and sincere like an episode of Adventure Time or Boxxy. That was especially hard.

This was originally gonna be an entry in the Power of 3 thing that happened ages ago, but then I put it aside and changed it into a completely different game a few months later.

Everyone's talkin about this like it's a sequel to Robot Dinosaurs but the only real similarities are that it's a horizontal shooter. I guess it has a big name aswell but whatever, that wasn't my intention.

Anyway, have fun with it!

oooooooooooooooooooooooh yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

too short.

Complete awesomeness. That's what this is. I can totally see what you're saying about Adventure Time, Booster being a shapeshifting bubble-dog. I love several things about this game. First of all, the badass music; It's a perfect jazz riff that really never gets old. Secondly, the background. Your backgrounds are always awesome. As in The Legend of Johnny and No Time To Explain, the background for the city area showcases similar carnage taking place in other areas. That's always been a high point for me, because if giant crabs or demons or Ultra Fleet Havoc Elite Armadas attacked the main character of a video game, I'm sure they would be attacking other people as well. It tickles me happy. Thirdliest, I love the ridiculously cartoony Dr. Seuss enemies. You don't really start seeing it until the big battery charged laser-tank with the docking bays. That thing is fucking awesome. I love it. The last thing I love unconditionally is the blue Angry Birds that you suck up to shoot radioactive plasma at shit. YUS.

You shouldn't

You shouldn't be reading this, you should be playing the game!!
