the most difficult and only obstacle in this game was overcoming your weak control system. jump is stupid broke btw. vote 2

Not a bad concept overall, I like the idea of having different weapons but maybe there should be more available as pick-ups 2 wasn't enough (unless I just didn't get far enough?), The platforming was fun, kinda reminded me of Mega-Man. I really only got a few screens into the second type of enemies before I got bored with it :/, I think going through and adding pick-ups and such would be a plus, maybe even a color change every couple levels. Still I thought it was okay overall, but unfinished.

This is a Stencyl tutorial. Don't submit whatever comes out of a tutorial. Many people do that, so this is already on here. Do you know how many times this has been put up already? Here's a clue:

Which looks looks just like this one: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view /592450

And almost like this one: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view /590439

Or this one: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view /593630

But at least this guy changed colors: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view /592752

Don't feel bad. It's a typical noob mistake, since you haven't been around a while. Hopefully, though, this review will help you to realize what goes on around here, since you've only been using Stencyl a short time. People get Stencyl or The Games Factory 2 and they do a tutorial and they decide to submit what they created. The problem is that 75 other people have done the same tutorial within the last month, so 74 versions of the same game came thru. (One person had the sense to hold out.) If the game works 100%, then it helps, but more often than not, the tutorial produces a game that isn't 100% functional.

Listen to what people say in their reviews. They'll offer tips to help improve (well, some will). For this game, I'd suggest changing the jump button. If you're going to have arrow keys for movement, have an arrow key for jump as well.

Next, please DO what people tell you in their reviews BEFORE you submit another game. That way you've actually done something to improve what you have and you won't be submitting the same stuff over and over like some people do.

Lastly, you could submit a new version with every change, but why waste your time and ours? Please finish your items before you send them in. Why submit half a game, y'know? Don't just finish it til it works, but finish it to the best it can be, and THEN submit it. That way, you won't have an account filled with bits and pieces of things.

Hope this helps.
