WARNING! THIS GAME IS HARD! SO REMEMBER: PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

TEAM WHIPPED CREAM!

Created for the February Newgrounds Game Jam!
Our theme (randomly assigned by IdeaTron ©):
Paper planes blasting burning giraffes.
In this game you play as Sgt G Rambo Jesus, a giraffe 'Nam veteran, who abandoned war to live a peaceful life together with his beautiful daughter. But satanic Vietcong paper planes from Space have kidnapped her - It's time to purge them with the flames of hatred & passion.

Controls:
Move Sgt Rambo with the mouse
Left click for a very weak spamshot
Click, hold & release left mouse button for FIERY DEATH!
Your health is indicated the transparency of your flames
Time will heal all your wounds
ATTENTION:
Some enemies can only be defeated with charged shots
Every enemy plane that reaches your side of the screen hits - you better destroy everything!

PROTIP: CHARGE AFTER EVERY SHOT!

Possibly coming soon: Survival modes!

AUSTINBREED'S REVIEW FROM http://austinbreed.newgro unds.com/news/post/569116 "

"They Came From Nam
Team Whipped Cream
I love everything about this game. The opening cut scene was really funny, the game play is fun, the interpretation of the theme is hilarious, and the artwork ruled. My only complaint was that the concept of the game play was pretty unoriginal, and I wish Team Whipped Cream had included some kind of giraffe ability SGT Rambo, like extending his neck or something."

Mute button importance < gameplay importance.
Also, your computer has one, so what's the point?


Niiiiiice!

When I saw that theme, I just knew it had to be a goldmine. And you guys delivered.

This felt like a full and proper game from start to finish. Not to mention challenging. But the important part was that the challenge was not artificial, no bugs or unbalanced programming, just an engaging game.

Excellent work!

Great game

You guys were blessed with a promising theme and you delivered. The arts great, the musics great, the gameplay is great, and there's little to no bugs. And the lulz factor tops it all off. I mean really, Sgt G Rambo Jesus? a 'Nam veteran giraffe? Fucking awesome!

Thanks man! That means so much coming from somebody who won the last Movie Jam!


Too hard.

The biggest set back in the game is the difficulty (at least for me.) The way the game showed the concept given is great, funny, absurd but the difficulty hinders it. I wouldn't mind how hard the game is if it had more powerups rather than just the normal charge bar, i found myself charging every other time (not including the stealth planes.) The way the life bar was shown is very creative (by the flame coming out of the giraffe to show the anger he has) the story was creative along with some of the content but the difficulty just threw me off.

Yeah, sometimes it's hard to judge difficulty if you've played your game 50000 times... (But NonPlusUltra managed to beat it with no deaths)


I love it!

When I reached the first boss I was like, "What the hell is that big grey thing?" haha, then I realized that was the boss. I love how you can charge up your attacks, nice touch.
