Here is its eulogy, a collection of the kind words written about it while still among the living. They shall live on forever in its place.

An action game similar to Mega Man and Metroid.

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: /592917

Which looks looks just like this one: /592450

Or this: /594051

And almost like this one: /590439

Or this one: /593630

But at least this guy changed colors: /592752

Don't feel bad. It's a typical noob mistake, even though you've submitted all sorts of 'stuff' already. Hopefully, though, this review will help you to realize what goes on around here. 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.

Hope this helps.

the game itself would be quite nice... but some people just dont understand that also europeans are playing games on newgrounds...
at our keyboards the "Z-key" is where your "Y-key" is... so its really crappy to play such games like this...

While I like the concept, more power-ups and enemies would be nice. Also, the rifle and shotgun do the same damage? 3 pullets (whichever weapons) to kill an enemy? Making the rifle pointless since I just run around with the shotgun, spreading bullets everywhere.

Stop, copying the games straight from stencyl. At least change it up!

Nice game, simple style and at least to me, a some what strange controll sceme, but I gues with a proper keyboerd, meaning one where the z-button is located next to x and c it would be rather good.

When I saw the thumbnail, I wasn't too optimistic as I resent the Stencyl Run and Gun kit with a passion do to it's awful controls, and sadly, this is no exception. It is not entirely games420's fault at all, but the kit itself is AWFUL. To the author, this has no extra creativity at all. Doing a copy-paste with any of the kits, let alone the worst one (aside from the Book one which is entirely pointless so it doesn't count), and just sticking blocks on is just lazy. I find if you added an 8 way shot, improved the slippery character (which is a LOT easier than adding an 8 way shot), adding some music etc. would really improve this. I used the Platforming kit to make a good Super Mario game (which unfortunately is no longer up) by using the kit as a basis and not doing a straight up copy. I'm not hating on you, as I think you can do a lot better with more effort. Please take this into consideration if you make a new game as I bet an original game would be better than the standard kits. If you are no good at making sprites or music, Stencylforge is your best friend.

this is great start....but it needs more...score..aiming..jump animations..etc. But i'm actually trying to build a plat former myself...did you use any tutorials for this game??....if so can you share the links!!

The jump is sluggish.
The controlls for jump and shoot were inverted (as per industry standart9.
Add "up" as jumpoption.
Please dont use ZXC - because only one half of the world uses that keyboard. The other half uses YXC. Use ASD or so. French still will hate it though xD.
Nice basis for a game. Have seen worse.
Good luck with improving on it.
