Johnny Upgrade is a super hero with no skills at all... initially!

Collect coins and buy upgrades in order to beef up this cartoon fellow and to master the big arcade level and beat the evil boss!

Have fun with this action / upgrade game mashup!

News: Medals up and running!
(didn't have the time to read and answer all the comments because of that medals thingy, but will do!)



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Five stars for the pure that I needed to kill time... and this game did. In fact, now I'm late...

Please do another - here are a couple of suggestions.
Superhero theme is good - but maybe have the appearance of the hero change over the course of the upgrades (starts of looking like an average joe, ends up beefy and tanned :D)
I agree with the idea of being able to develop a particular tree of powers - more upgrades are unlocked at a certain level of a particular upgrade etc.
Mid level miniboss, then a final boss at the end :D

Otherwise, well done! Loved it


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Well done flash here. I like the idea of creating a super hero from scratch and slowly working him up form a guy who can't even walk, to someone who can take an explosion to the face and still keep fighting. It's certainly an interesting idea with potential.

However, I feel that this game would benefit from more variety. Perhaps a there should be multiple choices for powers, each with its own pro and cons. For example: maybe the player would be able to choose between three or more attacks for them to use. They could punch (highest power, unlimited ammo but very little range), use a gun (average power, limited ammo, long range) or magic (lowest power, unlimited ammo, long range). It's just a suggestion should you wish to make another.

However, this was an entertaining game and an excellent time waster. Good job.

Hmm. Interesting game. I think the boss is hard, though. My favorite part is the beginning when he can't walk or jump.

So, yeah, little bug. I was playing, made it to the final boss, time was running out, fired with 1 second left, the shot went off, i exploded when the clock hit 0, then the boss smashed down on my shot and died. I got the medal and everything, but then it kicked me back into the upgrade screen. :)

That was good... I really just dont like the concept of waiting for the boss to do his attacks before you can hit him... i think it was a waste of time.. realtime.. haha but i like the upgrading thing.. Good job..
