IMPORTANT: If you get a glitch as demonstrated here (http://www.youtube.com/w atch?v=opDgxCm9ij4) upon beating the game and then trying to play again in one sitting, please PM me (Bcdefg123). Neither me nor 3D-xelu can replicate it.

5th place in the Game Jam according to Edmund! And apparent fan favorite! Thanks for your support!

Latest version: 1.3.3 (The DiMono update): The time you see you got after the game is now the time you submit. I also fixed an error upon restarting that didn't seem to affect anything, but still.

3D-xelu has made a video walkthrough for this game: http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=l87O_xOAvv8

*whew* Ok, so this is Team Moose's Game Jam submission. We had four people, but the only ones who did anything worth discussing are me (bcdefg123) and 3D-xelu.

3D-xelu had this idea, and he did all of the art, found the music, and for the most part spearheaded the project. For three days I spent virtually every waking hour on this project with him, and we are both pleased at the end result. If nothing else, it certainly is the nicest looking of the Game Jam games XD Anyway, I truly am VERY, VERY grateful to have such a talented teammate... there were also two absent ones, but hey, who cares about the details? And I'm just glad I was able to keep up, especially in that climactic final hour of the competition where we were both madly trying to get things done.

Anyway, enjoy.

Stuff added since the Jam (so you can get an idea): Medals, Wuss Mode, Scoreboards and Timer, go back to menu buttons, control scheme tuning, pause button, mute button, making HUD stuff semi-invisible when flown under, core and collision tweaking, breaking the end of the game and subsequently fixing it :P

Some Half-Life 2 sound effects are used, and are property of Valve.

impossible movement

ok maybe i'm not spectacular at these kinds of games but i noticed that it's nearly impossible to move at times, especially in diagonal directions. when movement is this difficult, nothing else really matters!

trial and error "lazors"

I'm not going to sit through the game over and over again just to see where these lasers are going...

This was nice effort, but

This is more glitchy than a Gameboy soaked in water.
I can't go left, if I press left and z I go right.

Nice...but

The games and music is nice and all, and thumbs up for story, I think its the best part and hilarious actually it perfectly describes what we have in mind when it comes to heroes in videogames.

But I had a problem and it seems the medal system is a little glitchy i already finished the game, saved the world, hoorray and whatever, but didnt get the WINRAR medal, BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD medals, even though i finished it under 2:20 actually 2:14 min its even there on the highscores of this day.

Not really that I care. I'm using Google Chrome as the browser maybe its Chromes fault, but still something you should check. Dont know under what circumstances this glitch is triggered, i lost a lot of times before finishing the game, maybe thats the problem the time count continues even after dying?

Great game, I love shooters, good for killing sometime, keep up the good work.

American Bullet Hell

That's a good way of describing this. First; I'm impressed that you guys made this in 3 days. Holy shit. I wonder what you guys could make in a month. Graphics, music, controls all great. I liked the idea behind this, and I also liked how each section had its own lifebar and you could destroy each part. Nice touch. I've played a lot of shoot 'em ups and bullet hell games; basically anything made by CAVE that's emulated, plus Gradius, Abbadox, Lifeforce, and the two Neo Geo shooters Blazing Star and Pulse Star. So this wasn't that hard in comparison.

I'm starting to notice a lot of retro revival games are going more toward the muscle memory route where memorization and reflex is key. Especially in a game like this. Great stuff guys.
