(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! ^^

Dude nice first game! It actually looks like you went to college instead of being a 14 year old like me and submitting Mediocre games! Besides the fact I see this game getting popular in the near future! I hope this game becomes successful! It's a great time killer by the way!

SinclairStrange responds:

Well it's more a hobby than learning at college. :3. Anyway I'm glad you liked it! ^^

Fun Game

One thing though. It feels like the normal rapid fire weapon is still superior to any of the other weapon upgrades, so that might require some tweaking.

SinclairStrange responds:

Aye, I did find that when I was quite a way through developing the game. In hindsight I would make the power-ups different, and give you the option of editing the way it fires, instead of collecting pick ups. I guess it's always good to make mistakes 'cause you can learn from them. I'm glad you found the game fun though =).

This is sweet!

This is probably the best game I have played here all year! The truly awesome thing about it was when you got the highest upgrade. You could basically just keep on pressing the same button and the game would basically play itself. I love the wide variety of enemies and locations. I had no idea this game was going to be so big. There are like eight levels in World 2, I don't even think the Mario games have that many levels in a world!

The music was extremely stylistic and set a great tone as well. I think my favorite thing would be how awesome it is to see the enemies explode and stuff. I don't even know how I finally failed in the end. This is a truly great piece of work and deserves to be highlighted. Everything was just so fantastically designed, each with something different. I love you man, for making something so great.
