Shell Shooter

Use your hunting skills to smash golden shells before they hit the ground. Destroy black shells or balloons to get more points and experience. Improve your gun and master the leaderboard on three difficulty levels!

This game is a sequel of my original "Zompkins" game (published on NG).

I'm not going to get into like everyone else who commented on this game. Good game though I really liked it.

very nice game, finished with 9 caps, 8200 pts

Great concept, and definitely an upgrade from Zompkins. I like the unique upgrade system that rewards concentration and practice, but hated the limited number of lives!
I think too often the game relies on "twitch" mechanics in order for the player to progress, but the level of variety here is awesome! I like how much the gun upgrades, and I like how varied the shells are in terms of where they spawn and what they are (gold/black/balloon). The chill reggae playing in the background also makes for a good experience.

out of 10...
gfx - 8 (smooth, clean, modern)
sfx - 9 (great reggae loop, good sfx)
design - 8.5 (simple concept, good variety)
gameplay - 9 (great upgrades, good controls)

overall, I think that this is a great game. The three difficulty choices presented allow the player to adjust the game somewhat to their skill level. I think that this should definitely be worthy of a daily feature, and will probably do quite well here on Newgrounds.
Again, a huge improvement over "Zompkins".

I have to say; this was, for what i can tell, an intuitive, challenging, puzzle/arcade/shooter game.I quickly played through and noticed a few things. First, there is no pause button, which was infuriating at times, to say the least. Also the gun would appear to, twist if you moved it upwards. There was little difference from the difficulty levels, but that could just be me. The music was repetitive and annoying. Overall, this is a great work and i expect to see more from you.

Very nice minigame. The graphics look very good. Everything feels smooth and polished.
