its not the best game I mean its alright but eh.

Cooly you! I love it!

It's fun and seems to be well made. The only thing I'd change is to give the player a wee bit more info. I failed a few levels on the first try and wasn't quite sure why. I assume it's because I missed too many targets. Though it would have been nice to understand exactly how it's judged; like level is failed if you miss more than %10 of targets.

On another note, other comments mentioned lagging. Surprisingly, I didn't have that problem at all. My CPU (Core-2 2.8Ghz) and RAM (4GB DDR3) are both lower than the other user's and I'm running it on Linux (Flash on Linux has terrible performance).

All in all it's well done. I think it's a lot harder than it looks to pull off a simple game play mechanic.

Thanks a lot. You're right I need to emphasise the rules. However I made them very simple: just don't miss any orange pumpkin :). Nice to hear that I'm not the only person who runs this game smoothly :F.

Suprisingly it took me about two months to create core mechanic of this game. I did my own blitting engine for Zompkins, as there weren't any satisfying me. It's a good and expansible bit of code, so you can look forward to play some sequels of this game. That's why community feedback is important for me.

kept me entertained but, it it kinda got repetitive. Thought I must say the music didn't really get old and it matched the general Halloween theme. Also the game is challenging so It wasn't a fly by game either. Next time though add a choice system for who you can be or even a few customisable option and it would make this game more appealing to some of the other players.

n-created responds:

Thanks for great ideas about adding choices (i.e. character playing). It seems to be cheap for development and nice feature in the game.

what is the 'wand level" point, if I can't upgrade it? mediocre.

n-created responds:

Wand level upgrades automaticaly when collecting EXP points (smashing stuffs). The game bases on simple concept and I rejected manual upgrades as it was a complication. Anyway, thanks for mediocre rating.
