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!

Very nice game. The art was just amazing and was a joy to look at while playing. The serene music was also enjoyable. My only issue with the game is so minor I didn't even take it into account on the score. The charge beam (or whatever it's called) took a long time to charge up and was only good for like one split second blast, awesome but kinda a waste. A longer fire time, or maybe summoning temporary drones that add to fire power or something would be a lot better. Overall awesome game and can't wait for the final version.

Good review. I like your idea about the drones, and you're right, the beam is a bit lackluster. Taken into account! Cheers.

I love the style of it, very irreverent and a great score. Certainly a good teaser for an engine and a great game too. The dynamic with the shield is one I'd like to see in more shooters. Great work!

Can you be more specific in a PM? I aim to please, bro.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Please give the game changeable controls....I'm German and z-y is quite uncomfortable to reach (Even I would know that much AS3 to change that ;) ) More to say: Graphics are awesome but a bit static as already mentioned...

It's like playing Cool World The video Game (if you don't know the movie, look it and a video game of it doesn't exist"
