Ok but not the greatest
Needed to download new software just to play it.
Good game but could have been better.
This was a pretty fun game, the upgrade section may have worked better on a pause menu but it wasn't too bad. The graphics could have been better but what was really missing were bosses. I understand why there wouldn't be but still, it would have been cool to fight a giant mutated squid or something.
It's a fun little game and the shooter aspect is well implemented, but there are several areas that it could use improvement.
First of all, the graphics. While the swallow itself looks fine, the rest of the enemies are far too abstract. I mean, I get the flying fish and giant squids, but the red Xs with eyes? Not sure what those are supposed to be. While I am a fan of simplistic graphics, these were too simplistic.
While the core gameplay is good, there are a few tweaks that would make it a lot better. The first is the speed of the swallow. Even after upgrading several times, it always felt like I was flying far too sluggish. Fire rate and weapon upgrade were nice and felt like they actually made a difference.
The music and sounds were all right, they weren't intrusive to bother, but neither did they stand out to me.
All in all, a fun little game that could use a few improvements to make it better.
Thanks! The 'X' is (based on sound) a pixel owl :-) (my brother's idea you know)
