Author Commentary:

BoMToons: This was intended for Madness Day 2010, but was slightly delayed. I had this gameplay idea while watching some Madness cartoons. It's gone through a lot of revisions based on lots of player feedback (thanks Coaly and Jacksmack!). I hope you give it a chance! There are tons of other gameplay features we wish we had time to add like smarter AI, more stealth rewards, smarter reloading constraints, more balanced guns, the ability to watch all your replays in a row, etc...maybe for a sequel? As always, it's a pleasure to work with Luis, his take on my ugly level mock-ups brought a richness and fun to the story that I never would have included. P.S. This was coded "Somewhere in Nevada" where I live!

Luis: This is a strategy/puzzle game, kinda like chess. Enjoy!

Good concept, felt unpolished

Well, I really loved the concept. One of my major concerns was that the game was too short, though. Another big flaw was that certain areas ran at a great 25fps but places like the disco room ran at like 6 which was rather annoying. Don't use as many effects next time. Also, I really don't like the input lag. At one point in the game I had to redo a level about 8 times because it wouldn't read my input. Another big problem is chaos, aka randomness. I used the top tier armor piercing gun through most of the game and most of the time I had to watch a replay 5 or 6 times before it would correctly play the level and kill everyone. The bullet spread was just too chaotic. I understand that there has to be some degree of chaos but come on. It makes it hard to share replays. I would love it if you would make a sequel expanding on the original and fixing some of these problems in time for next year's Madness Day.

Good but needs work

the concept and play wise was good but the execution of some of the pre-preared strikes never land where you want to hit them. The timer is far to fast for people to track the stage movement and you end up trying almost each stage 20 to 30 times over before you either give up or finally get a lucky shot. I seriously gave up on the final stage being 450 seconds and completely bonkers with that stupid shield of his forcing you to move. To top it off most of the shots don't hit the right spots anyways so I'm not even going to bother with the "Beat the game" Medal. It would be nice that we would see the movement and actions of some of the obstacles since that made me retry at least 10 time each stage after the first one. Other than that good effort though. Was expecting a more promising and enjoyable title. Happy *PAST* Madness Day 2010

Fun, but annoying at times

It's kinda fun to have to think through how the enemies will move, etc. However, waiting for the animation to replay each time your restart a level is annoying, along with the countdown.

If you could start the timer as soon as the person moves instead of the countdown, I would have enjoyed it more.

Overall, a fun and unique game. Keep up the good work.

Fun but awkward

It was a pretty fun game and a new concept but some points where just annoying. Waiting for the timer to run down after you got your head blown off already... or the guy not shooting when he should. It would of been nice to skip through the rest of the replay or premeditation mode when you failed or nothing else was happening. Like I said it was fun but it felt to slow to be madness.

you can skip the intro by clicking or pressing a direction key
