3RD PLACER IN THE NEWGROUNDS GAME JAM 3!!!!

Since Nobody seems to get this:

>THIS GAME WAS MADE IN 72 HOURS FROM SCRATCH FROM A RANDOM IDEA!<

ADDED A MUTE BUTTON! PRESS ON YOUR KEYBOARD "-" TO MUTE AND "=" TO UNMUTE! NOW SHUT UP!

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."

Where is the rest...

... of the body?!
I really love this game because... THERE IS A BURNING FLYING GIRAFFE HEAD!!! Holy ****! This is awesome! %u2665
I killed all bosses now 3 times but i don´t know what is the secret medal is...
The graphics are funny. The music is okay, maybe more differences, but i think it´s hard to make 1 mio different sounds in 72h. The gameplay is good, but it would be a little better if you can charge more that you can shoot through the red/blue enemies. Btw it is only me or it is normal that i take no damage from the blue enemies? They never hit exactly, they die before i took damage. I ignored them the whole time.
The story is... wtf... i don´t get it, but it is a burning giraffe! This is story enough!
10/10 and 5/5 and favourite!

Greetings %u2665

PS: Maybe a lil hint for the secret medal?

Shleif didn't upload it to the audio portal.


decent

you done a good job on this, i know it's hard to make this shit, so this is pretty good for only 3 days. I like the graphics, it goes well with the music, like some old-school nintendo stuff, (or should i say atari? i don't know i'm fucking stupid) but anyway, i like all the work you done seems like a lot of effort, but i have one problem. the enemies can only be kiled with fully charged shots. it seems like nitpicking, but it's a bit of a handicap, because it takes pretty long to rapidly fire single shots (at least on my pc anyway). but either way decent work.

I put the charge shot in to reduce shot spamming, make the game harder, and cuz I'm a dick.
