this was a pretty cool mash up of styles that i wasn't expecting, also the requirement of getting ammo in the first part made it really satisfying when shooting down below
Thanks! I had a lot of fun mashing the various genres together and it's nice to see others enjoying the result.
Really fun and challenging
Glad you liked it, thanks!
I like the different "stages" of each wave - first dodge bombs and collect ammo, then open the parachute and avoid the jets firing at you, then shoot the grenades you've collected at the bombs. It's also neat how in later levels you can trigger proximity mines (best done from below since the shrapnel tends to go up) and time the bombs that follow you to explode on other bombs, giving the player multiple ways of getting rid of the bombs.
The powerups are very well balanced. I've found use in all five you get from the orange balloons, including the +10 ammo and $10,000 (for upgrade money or just extra points!)
My high score so far is 2,277,700, having cleared all 10 waves without dying. I like how you can beat the game by trying each wave over and over again, but you get more points if you do most or all of it straight through without dying.
It's just kind of annoying how in the later levels you see, but have no chance to get, some of the balloons because the jets destroy them before they reach you. And maybe take the $10,000 out of the random powerups you can get in level 10, since you can't use that money?
I appreciate the in depth write up. I was hoping that players would start to learn those 'hit and run' tactics using the proximity mines and shrapnel bombs to help thin the bomb wave during jetpack mode. That is sort of a key strategy in counter-acting the diminishing ammo supplies (and I think part of the fun too!)
I know what you mean about the enemy shots taking out your balloons, I curse every time too! Haha. I do like that as a kind of funny stress and tension. As far as the $10,000 power up not mattering in wave 10, it should at least help boost your final score. I know it isn't much though in the scheme of most wave 10 scores ending up near the 2 million mark.
Once again, thanks for playing the game all the way through, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
