I always had a hankering to try and make a game on my own, so I finally took the plunge and made this indie game, which was inspired by my love of Pokemon, and random pop culture nonsense. It's ironic that it took me this long, because I worked in the game industry for many years, but never on the development side. Making games is hard work. Who knew. So thanks to the various people who helped out across the board, because I really couldn't have done it without you.

It's a humble 1st attempt, so I'm hoping to add more as I go along. My thought is that I continually build new features on the same engine and launch more episodes. If you have any feedback, good or bad, I'd really appreciate it. Otherwise, I'll never learn! Thanks for your support!

UPDATE: A couple of bugs were raised, so I'm going to work on those next!

Overall a good game...

The game definately held my interest for a while. But of course there were certain aspects that I feel could be improved upon.

I think the entourage members should have differed from the enemy. I'm referring to the turtles and the ninjas. The overall experience was slightly ruined for me when a member of my team was also a member of the opposition.

I think a new recruitment system may help the game also. Maybe by visiting a variety of small buildings on the map. Each building would have an individual character with various difficulties who would challenge you to a fight in exchange for their "services".

The upgrades were very limited. I think increasing the difficulty, and including more upgrade options would add a lot more depth. Maybe give the player the ability to upgrade the weapons and stats of their entourage as well.

Allowing upgrades and items to be bought in between battles would be a nice addition too. I was often left frustrated that i wasn't able to do so, ended up dying and then had to go through each battle again.

On the dying front. Being sent to the map once Victor died, despite having 2 other fully functioning entourage members, ground my gears a little. Especially when i couldn't sub out Victor prior to the next battle.

Despite these nuances i thought it was a very strong effort. The animation was nice, the characters were great, the music was good and the overall idea was a sound one. The sfx could get tedious at times.... but i could live with them.

A bugs and weird actions

I liked the game, but there were a few things that were off. Found it wierd that every attack hit everyone on the opposite side (as people have said before). Also it went to an advertisement every time I finished a mission, and I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that. I hit level 9 after beating the Gaga mission, and then I went to the entourage recruit menu and only Tequila Monster, Al Pachinko, and the Godfather were available, but I only had recruited the 2 turtles, Slashimi, and Baller Chain.
Besides these issues, I think it's an overall good game.

It was and it wasnt

I really did have fun playing this game but it just wasnt an RPG or Adventure game really. I mean yes you did level up and go to new areas but the whole leveling system and fighting system was pointless. The weapons really had no usefulness or changes besides maybe be slightly more accurate or powerful. Why did every weapon hit every enemy? Why did you fight multiple enemies multiple times and even have them in your party sometimes? It just felt like those last levels in an RPG where you where aimlessly wandering around trying to kill enough enemies to make it past the boss or whatever was in the way at the time. I just kept getting more money and hitting the level cap which didnt even stop you from getting stronger and buying more stuff. It was fun like I said but that didnt keep me playing like it should.
