This is my first Newgrounds submission, and also my first ever game.

I created Spectrum Dodge as part of a flash game assignment for my games course at uni.

The game was created in Flash CS5. It took 24 hours to make in Flash, but there was an extensive planning process before that.

I am really pleased with how it turned out, even though I didn't manage to integrate a leaderboard. If I manage to to this, I'll update the game. For now, though, the best I can do is create a facebook page for it, where you can post your best times. However, for this to work properly, it requires everyone to be honest. So, please, be a good sport and post your actual times!

SPECIAL THANKS: There were 4 people in particular that really helped in the making of this game (mainly the code, as I'm not a great programmer). Gavin McLaughlin as he is a phenomenal programmer and a wizard at ActionScript - there wouldn't be much of a game without him. Scott McCorkell for lending a hand whenever I was stuck, even when he had his own game to be getting on with. Dave Wright for lending a massive helping hand with the code. And Shane Miller, for helping me put the soundtrack together... at, like, 1 in the morning.

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you liked it. Yes, the sound icon looks terrible and it is buggy too. Yeah, I have thought about possible sequels/updates to the game. Maybe after I finish uni. On that note, check out my new game Surface Smoke.

Nice first game! Wish mine was this good :P

Zeozon responds:

Thanks for the review.

I just played your games and they're not that bad. More ambitious than mine anyway. Good luck with your future submissions.

You used some of your greatest "first time flash" talent. 7/10!

Zeozon responds:

Thank you very much. Is there any improvements you could suggest? And also, do you know how to set up a leaderboard in the game, without having links to other websites? I've seen a lot that have links to but this requires the user to set up an account. Thanks.
