I honestly found no problem with this game.
Those who complain just aren't good enough I suppose :P
I really liked this game, but a few improvmens wouldn't hurt
first, there should be powerups that spawn all over the map every couple of seconds
Second, the weapon-lost-when-hit is kinda frustrating. mabye something esle in place of this?
third, there should be a way to repair the holes, and keep new holes from being formed
These are just some thoughts I had while playing. But Nice Job! 15 out of possible 5!
5 stars for red dwarf being first level
I think this game needs to be expanded upon. The weapons system is excellent, giving the player a very wide variety of different weapons, each providing a different advantage and requiring a slightly different skill set to put to good use, most of them enabling the player to set up satisfying kill streaks and combos. The aliens are fun to kill, and each pose a different challenge. The pacing is frantic and well balanced, difficult but not tedious. Holy crap I love this game. When I say it needs to be expanded on, what I mean is this: you rarely find such an excellent weapons system as this, and I'd like to see it put to use in a larger game.
Maybe the player could invade a series of planets, allowing for a longer more open platforming experience on the planet's surface, with a boss fight at the end, and then the player must play the rod running game on board the ship to safely make the hyperspace jump to the next planet.
Just spitballing here, because this is the funnest flash game I've played this year, and I think it could be even more fun.
Have to agre with TenhGrey--just beat Mutant mode and had no trouble. Awesome game all around--it reminds me of an improved version of the Battle games my brother and I used to play on Super Mario Brothers 3. The slo-mo action on hyperjump approach and the weapon/armor combo made for a unique play experience. Props, broseph.
