THIS GAME IS AWSEOME!!! One of the best games I've ever played!!
This game is awesome, with its badass music, grapgics and gameplay :D.
But is it perfect? Eeeeeeeee so close, but no. The one thing I didn't like was that you couldn't shoot while running or jumping, and it gets repetitive stopping and shooting. But besides that, this game's awesome, and defines the awesomeness of Pico Day. Hope to see your work in the future c:
P.S. Happy Pico Day 2011 :D
You can shoot while running but not that effectively, partially because you get to where you're running before you can shoot enough. I'm also thinking about adding jumping while shooting, that will probably only need one quick animation and a bit of tweaking to add in.
A tiny glitch is if a spider touches you while you are one a wall (May not happen all the time) It will launch you into the sky of the map stick you in the ceiling and will keep you there (It was the school map for me)
I dislike being the minority but oh well. I thought the controls were pretty damn good. I did not see them as some fundamental flaw in game play but rather as an amusing challenge. Hell, once you learn to compensate for the admittedly unusual controls they can even be rather useful, like sliding away from the enemy in a crouch as you aim behind you so you can put distance between them and yourself while still getting ready to shoot.
I mean honestly it gives you easy to execute wall jumps, power-ups and the ability to duck under most enemy fire. If the controls didn't slide a little instead of turning on a dime and did allow you to spam the jump button it would be no challenge at all.
I realize that nowadays people don't really enjoy a good challenge in their games anymore, but I don't think their was anything to fix in the controls. I do however admit that being able to jump and shoot at the same time would be nice.
Very nice game good job shame i got bored though :[ Maybe force players to play a wave first or something idk
