(Fixed the medal issue in 1-1)
Like I said, it might erase game data because it uses internal saving and everytime I upload a new flash the savefiles get replaced. Also with people asking for a pause button, and edits to the game... I'm currently working on my second flash game and don't have time to return and iron out the bugs/improvements. I will go back to it, once I've finished my other flash game. Cheers.

Seriously thanks for the Daily 3rd and front page!

Secondly, I know about the weapon issue about being overpowered/underpowered. This being my first dabble in flash games I was experimenting and trying out things that sometimes may not end up actually working.
Originally it was just the rapid gun and you change the way/direction you fired it, however speaking to some people in the indie community, they said I should make more different weapons for extra diversity. Next time I'll use my gut instincts :P
Taking onboard people's criticisms and reviews I can next time develop a game with that in mind and improve. I didn't know it'd do this well as I'm still myself learning. Thank you for your reviews, it will help me in the future =).

Hey theres,
I be presenting you with me first ever flash game :3
I've been designing this game for a while now, and finally it's finished! I know it's not completely perfect but I have poured a lot of heart and soul into it. You play as a rock that wants to journey into space...and he can also shoot lasers out of his eyes. (And missiles.) You need to protect your little space island's only source of flight, four balloons that will guide Mr.Rock into space.

Anyway it's got three stages, each with nine parts and a boss at the end. Five weapons, each with three levels of power and lots of different types of rocks/baddies. There is a help section in the flash game with extra information about the game.

I'll just say the controls 'ere just case.

Anyway I hope you like the game and enjoy the arcade like action!

EDIT:(It does have medals but I guess it needs to pass "under judgement" stage.)
EDIT2:(I guess it doesn't cause I can see them)
EDIT3: With people bringing up the issue of weapons, I've changed it so when you collect a different power up, you don't lose your charge. However I do believe it this wipe out previous saves people have made, so I'm sorry about that. (It might not though).
Also thank you for your kind words and reviews! ^^

i love this game so much!!!!!!!!!!!

valiant effort at a missile command derivative. not my cup of tea though.

Dosen't make much sense what you do you just blow up platforms, it is boring.

SinclairStrange responds:

You're boring too. :)

Seems kinda boring after the first level...

Hints: start with the default weapon until at least weapon level 2, then switch to spread. Homing will get stuck sometimes on something high up on the screen rather than attack nearer objects and laser/missile are absolute crap.

If anyone gets the OTHER SECRET MEDAL, PM me.

Bugs: Beat the game and lose saved progress(aka lose access to space and sun levels) . I'm using Firefox 10.0.2 with flash set to unlimited local storage.
Flashblock and AdBlock set to near Nazi fascist levels.

1. no pause OR QUIT/RESTART OPTION. I would of thought that writing a fully useable interface for your players would have been the first thing you'd create. Its the first thing taught comp sci...

2. every weapon, not rapid fire, is under powered until level 3. Previous commenter mentioned that its a death sentence but I'll say you can't win with all balloons.
