AWESOME! How many lvls does it go up to?
ta weno :D :D
Awesome! What a cool twist on stale old Snake. Easy to play, cool upgrades, interesting gameplay. Very original, 9/5.
Let me tell you that this game is one of the best games I have played on NewGrounds in a long time.
This game has very simple mechanics. Kill. Pick up squad members. Kill. Collect coins. Upgrade. Repeat. This game is incredibly simple yet is it very addicting. I also like the retro graphics, and don't think they need to be changed.
I really enjoyed the upgrading system. My favorite being the decrease squad distance upgrade. There was enough upgrades to keep me coming back and having the best squad available.
I would recommend:
-Adding medals to this game, or the sequel. Having the in game medals is good, but I wanna be able to boast about my achievements in the New Grounds Community. Also, it gives us more of an "accomplished" feeling when finally getting that ridiculously hard medal.
-Adding more upgrades. This game had a large variety of upgrades but I feel like it could have much more. Possibly adding "accuracy" to a squad member and being able to upgrade their overall accuracy. Or maybe being able to upgrade the power or type of gun the captain holds. Upgrading to a stronger pistol, a magnum perhaps? Upgrading the weapons of the specific squad members specifically.
-Adding more levels and enemies. Change the location up after you get to a certain point. Maybe add certain environmental elements such as land mines, spikes or poison gas. Just a few suggestions. Also, add some more enemies. Spice up the game with mini bosses or new enemy types.
-Add more soldier types. A heavy armored soldier. A chemical warfare soldier. A mortar team soldier. A soldier who could protect the others (A sentinel of some sort).
-Add customization. Let me change the captains appearance. Or the uniform they wear.
-Add some sort of experience meter. Maybe ranks can be added that unlock certain things. New guns, new units or new environments?
I know adding so much stuff, if you were interested in adding anything above would make the game much more complex and may go against the simplicity of the game (If that is what you were going for with this game) but they are merely suggestions.
You created an addicting and fun game and I look forward to playing sequels or new games you have to offer. A perfect 5 out of 5 stars.
