On level 16, that one jump where theres acid next to where you have to be, no matter how hard I try, it kills me, because it seems that being that close to acid kills you, but i cant get in to that little hole with it that way.
Haven't been scared playing a game in a long time!
You get that adrenaline kick immediately from this high-octane fast-paced shooter. This is one of those games where the frustration from the challenge becomes actually enjoyable in a sick, addicting way. Artwork, audio, creativity, coding, design, replay value, AI-- everything was superb! (Seriously, high-five to the coder who designed the AI, they were perfect at chasing you!)
However, lag was an issue at times; though I actually preferred high quality and particles to slow the action down (impossibly fast on low quality, no particles). Very often, the lag would make me miss jumps. Speaking of which, the jumping and movement... it's forgivable but it was painful at times due to that magnetic feeling and random lateral velocities (sometimes you jump across far and sometimes barely). This made the lava is WAY too unforgiving. Health, weapons, items, enemies, even the worm... none of them matter in comparison.
Also, I know this was part of the "Fuuu-- I'm getting chased!" feeling you guys wanted but the triggers on the map to send the worm flying at you didn't feel right. No matter how fast I ran a region of a map, the worm would spawn right behind me at a certain point. Not rewarding.
The item curve could've been better. Why the price cap-offs on the last set of items? I used only the saw gun and the last items on the clothing shop.
Tips for sequel/remake:
-more testing levels!
-Lava too unforgiving.
I'm sure you might've heard of it but there's a game called "I Wanna Be The Guy". Beautiful controls. You guys had the double-jump and hold-jump too. However, I never saw the holding of jump ever come much use. Maybe design levels that are are more demanding of those skills.
Thanks for the review! To be honest, the AI is very rudimentary but I'm glad to see it did the job haha!
I did hear about I wanna be the guy, but haven't tried it myself. I'll look into it if it can help me design better levels!
This games pretty awesome. Very addicting and feels good. It also actually makes good use of achievements. One of my favs on newgrounds
Very nice game and the art style rocks damn hard. Matches my taste quite a lot. Also the many, many things you can buy keep this game pretty interesting.
The only 2 reasons why I give only 9/10 are the difficult jumping parts because of the shitty mid-air control and the fact that this game could use some more weapons.
But all in all this is a nice bunch of action.
Love the game...
but it needs a way to reset data
