Beetle Mania

So I started this in the summer but I got lazy so it took this long to have completed.

I have always wanted to make a recreation of this game and now I have. This is to the first of my knowledge the only Beetle Mania game created in flash (its also my personal favorite).

This game was my very first game created with Flixel and the source can be downloaded @ http://code.google.com/p/
beetlemania/downloads/lis t

Controls are spacebar to shoot and arrow keys to move.
Shoot the shells and Fishers
Collect the green mushrooms and starbits

You can get huge scores by making chain reactions with the shells. The key to large scores is these chain reactions. You can make chain reactions by letting the screen fill with shells and shooting off just 1 star to clear all the shells.
Shooting the fisher will reset the game and gives 100,000 points.
A green mushroom appears when a the highest chain reaction is made and will reset the number of spacebar presses needed to come back to life.

I hope you people enjoy playing this as much as I enjoyed making it! Comments are very welcome but please keep it constructive!

Ah its nice to see people who appreciated the game :)
I loved this game in Mario RPG so I just really wanted it to be remade even though most other people don't really appreciate it. Thanks for the review buddy.

PS: My personal highscore is over 4 million, and I havn't played the final version of the game too much.


jea its funny, it reminds me at the bonuslevels from Tyrian 2k
good work
the mario grafix are nice too, it makes a happy warm feeling

Wow, thanks for making this one of your favourite games! The Mario themes are there because it is based on a minigame in Mario RPG on the SNES. The music you hear while controling the beetle is the same music you will hear in the original.
