30 NOV 2010: Fixed the auto-rez, losing screen freeze, and Forge glitch. (If this doesn't show up on the patch notes, clear your internet cache and reload the new version).

29 NOV 2010: It's been over a year since I published Chapter 1, and this, unfortunately, is not the latest installment. This is just a demo for all the changes that were made and a way for me to test them out before completing Chapter 2. And there were A LOT of substantial changes. So while I hate releasing "unfinished" work (in the sense that there's no story - it's just the Arena mode), you will be doing me a huge favor by giving me your feedback. So let's go over what's available here:

- Completely overhauled game engine. Everything you loved about Chapter 1 - but better!
- Brand new Arena mode! Test your fighting ability to win prizes!
- Unlockables!
- New shops, including the Forge, that lets you craft new and unique weapons!
- 75 Upgrades and over 20 Battlechips that let you customize your characters to your liking.
- Excellent music by some of the best artists Newgrounds Audio has to offer!
- In-game tutorials!
- Free pony for every person who LOVES this game (free pony may or may not be a complete and fictitious lie).
- And much, much more!

*Note* - The save feature does work, but (since it's a demo), they won't transfer to Chapter 2.

Lastly, there are probably more than a few bugs that need to be sifted out. I've been working solo on this project for almost three years now so it's impossible for me to find them all. Just send me a quick PM if you find one and I'll try and have it fixed soon. Thanks again!

Great release.

This game has a series of bugs, and has been rather annoying at some times.
Be careful when using limit breaks against something thats countering, in the time trial you may hit the wall on the way down to the next level, and be forced to slide down for about 20 seconds, same goes with arena wall. If you leave the arena to go time trial, do not open your menu and close it, the arena background will cloud your screen, till you reenter the arena, or restart. Opening and closing your menu will give you a brief glimpse of where you are before it covers it again. Some time trial objects aren't 100% grabbable 100% of the time. So far i've only been able to use support units when I have dynamo or X as the leader. If you do the same tier multiple times, you can get some rewards you probably don't deserve. Steal does work. Time trial is very easy way to get items fast. Music your playing might stop while playing, it happens to me when i use a music website. Just pause and start your music. This will happen everytime you change a major screen, battle to battle, and boss warning. Doesn't affect your music when you go through time trial. Also, i wouldn't unequip your chip interfaces if you start a game, they require level 5. So you probably wont be able to requip them.

Sadly i don't think characters like dynamo, will be playable, that is sadness... *cough cough* Just putting that out there.

Nasty Bug:

On Tier 4, the first or second round there is a riot control he did this one move and targeted my X, He shot the bullet, the music stopped but the status icons still popped up, it was extremely annoying because hes done this for 5 times now.

Fantastic game! Also bug report

I cannot stress enough how amazing your progress and overall ability is! I have been a big fan since Chapter 0 and have enjoyed every installment. keep up the good work!

On a less happy note, it seems that when I try to use the frag grenade, the game seems to "freeze": I use quotes because the music still plays in the background, and when I hover my mouse over a status icon, it still pops up. The readying up animations for the sprites still work, it just seems to not know what to do next.

Anyway, thanks for releasing this, and I hope that you have a happy New Year!

It's a demo?

This is a great game. Even though thier are a few glitches, the game is great, especcially for a demo. The battle interface is better now, mainly because it is easier, in my opinion, to read the health bars. Also, the new animations and music are sweet. I can't wait to see the full version.

Thanks for the demo. I almost thought you had died or something. XD

(I think that this game would actually be able to stand as a full version game if the tournament had more tiers.)

Damn good of a demo!

I was surprised that you called this game a demo, and it actually feels whole in my opinion XD. I experienced the same glitches the other reviews below had posted. Here are some suggestions for Chapter 2 of your game:
=>After you obtain the 3rd support character, you can almost always beat any round. Might be useful in tight situations, but you might want to nerf it a little to keep it challenging.
=>It appears that one of the '???' bonuses (or a glitch maybe?) gives you infinite upgrade points. Nerf that too maybe?
=>If Axl is the team leader, not X, and when you end a round with a win, Sigma's image comes up, instead of Axl's. Fix?
=>Sometimes if you lose, the screen freezes and you have to refresh the page. It's been said before, yes, but I got pretty annoyed by that.
=>When using the skill "Slow All", the game freezes for me. Fix?
=>After beating all 5 tiers, the game becomes boring. Put a scaling option in the options menu so that even tier 1 can still be challenging after you beat the game. The only other interest is the treasure race, but I haven't gotten anything good from it yet.
=>Scrap machine such that you destroy unnecessary equipment and get scraps from it. Haven't been able to get some of those rare scraps....XD
=>More super/advanced/awesome battlechips so all that SXP doesn't go to waste xP
=>Instead of having to press up/down to switch from items to skills, just put them all on one line so it will be easier to see. I didn't know how to select items until I, by accident, pressed the up button during a battle on tier 4.
Other than those things, it all seems pretty good to me. I think your full Chapter 2 will be pretty good considering all the feedback you've been getting :).
