THIS GAME IS LESS THAN 12 MINUTES CAPS-LOCK. It IS a demo, so there's a few issues unresolved, but I'm working to fix them as I get feedback!
--edit 2-- HOLY SH*T! Front page! Whoooo!! Thanks Tom and thanks Newgrounds! And yes, I'm looking at all your comments, really appreciate the feedback. :D
--edit-- tweaked some balance issues, upped the framerate.
CRU is a side scrolling shooter/exploration game. This is a SHORT ASS DEMO, which means I can only show a bit of the exploration, the bulk of the demo is the shoot-em-up section.

Controls: (once you get to the shooting part!)
_----==** Z: shoot X: shield C: charge beam **==----_
The beam gauge charges when you kill an enemy; If you slaughter them like the beast you are, you'll charge it up, dude.

ANYWAYS have fun ng!

Well that was fuckin' cool

Nice job. If you release a full version of this, I bet it makes front page in no time at all. I'd ask that you check out those bullets the gun's shooting, I'm sure you could make that look better than it does. Other than that...this was rad.

Nice game.

It looks like a good start. The graphics were done very well, and I think that's the game's best asset (no pun intended).

This could definitely turn in to a good hardcore shooter game. Also, you can even find an in-game use for the platformer aspect of the game, maybe some side quest or maybe you land "inside" and enemy base or something, and take the core out on foot, then hurry and get back to your ship and escape before the place goes up, or something.

Should you continue the game, I'm sure you'll add more power-ups, enemies, sound effects, and all the extra polish. Please consider adding a pause ability, and the ability to mute music or sounds.

I hope you find yourself a good AS3.0 programmer.
Good skill on your game, soldier.

Hey Ziro, thanks for the great review. Yea, there's a lot of polish left out of this demo since I did it in such a hurry. That's a good idea about landing inside an enemy!

I really liked the design, but I feel the instructions could use a slight touch more. The design is wonderful and the level was enjoyably difficult. Keep up the good work!

Just updated to have a bit more hefty instruction! Thanks for your input dude. :)

Still rather simple but it looks promising. The ship feels a bit slow but responsive and the utility of the shield isn't readily apparent leading to an early death but otherwise its entertaing. Awesome backgrounds and artwork, can't forget those.

LordDF responds:

Thanks man. The shield blocks bullets only, I should have been more specific about that in the tutorial! Well, it's not too late to update.
