(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! ^^

Sweet time waster

A really fun game to mess around with, it looks really good and runs very smoothly
My only shot at it is that it's hard to get a good weapon to mow everything down fast enough, but I'm sure if you do that soon enough its just pure fun after that. good job.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I thought it runs very smoothly.

I thought a bit more clarity on what controls do what would be good.
First time playing, I just walked around while the rocks were crashing down upon me, and I thought, "Oh, I guess I just have to avoid them." Then, "GAME OVER" appeared and I was like, "WTF?"
So even a screen for, "Controls" or introducing them would be nice.
I figured it out eventually that it IS the A button.
And now I see that in the "author's comments" but put them in the game as well!!
Other than that, very smoothly played, great action, overall, very well done for your first game!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very fun, however...

I does need a little tweaking. Nice game tho. Can't wait for version 2!!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Well, it's your first game and it shows.

this has the potential to be good, but as it is, it really isn't. Great graphics and music though. Might want to check for bugs - randomly losing access to the Spacestation level and having the rotating enemies on said level become completely invincible don't really encourage further play.

Aye I know they're some bugs still, after a lot of testing but it's more of a learning curve to see what works and what doesn't. I didn't encounter the invincible enemies bug, but I'll examine further. Cheers for the review =)
