Very nice game

I don't know why but it seems like with every game you make there is always some critical flaw. I've played several other games by Nitrome and there is always some bug or flaw that shows up in the comments and nearly everyone who comments mentions it.

With this game obviously it's the camera. I feel like you designed a great game but when you saw the camera in testing, you just said "fuck it" and let it go. I can't imagine why you did that.

Love the game play but the floating camera has made me feel like vomiting after playing for 15 minutes, motion sickness city!

It has a nice concept, but the camera is terrible, it moves way too much and makes aiming unnecessarily difficult.

A nice game, but inferior compared to Faultline.

I recognized the style as being similar to Faultline, so no wonder they are from the same author. They are both platformers with a gimmick, the difference just is, that the gimmick in Dirk Valentine pales in comparison. Faultline's gimmick is a real mind blower and something totally different from what you've seen in other games. Here, it's basically just a hookshot weapon that bounces. The gameplay works, but doesn't feel particularly fun.

One thing I'm wondering about both of the games is the scoring system. I found it unmotivating and merciless that going for the hiscores basically just means trying not to die through the duration of all the levels.

ps. Faultline was published on NG first, but I wonder which one of the games was made first?
