This is a short Flash game I made like .. six years ago (so go easy on me!) to familiarize myself with Flash.

I'm trying to see how the Newgrounds API works for me (with medals and the like), and how things generally work here, so I thought to post this here. Hope you like it.

Controls: Arrow keys to move, space to shoot. Escape pauses.

Passwords: The first levels start very easy, and they are likely too easy for versed gamers. If you would like to skip them, use "raspberry" or "blueberry" as a password (they are different because there are two types of weapons, which you'd otherwise get to pick in the first level).

This game has 13 levels. At level 7 (normal mode only), the levels branch: If you rescue Celina, it continues in challenge mode, at which point it becomes much harder. Challenge mode has an unique level (level 14).

I forgot a type cast with the scores which I didn't expect, which is why some of the scores seem high: If you beat the game, the score basically increases by three orders of magnitude. They are valid though, and playing better (having more lives left, killing more monsters) directly translates into a higher score. I fixed it for the current version, and would edit the score board if I could.

The background music is a song that NordicHazard posted here on NG.

You know.... I think you should replay your game, because it seems like it's not working properly anymore. When the level starts there are no objects, only background... The way the game is now, it's literally unplayable.

Not bad.

It's a good start. I can tell you put effort in the art. The game-play is a bit simplistic, but classic. The music is a tad annoying, but that's just my own taste. It's good for a few minutes, but it'll get dull. I see there is a story-line, but more dialogue can go a long way... Maybe side characters too. However, for a first game it is not bad.

Thank you. ^-^ I agree, a more elaborate story could be interesting. I guess I hadn't played many shooters with an elaborate story line, so I thought this was already plenty. ;P Glad you like it, in any case - even if ActionScript3 came out soon after I wrote the game, it gave me an introduction to coding in Flash. :3

Very good game! You got five stars but it is total garbage compared to my wonderful cat Shpachtel!

Shpachtel! I love you! You are the most wonderful cat in the world! I love you Shpachtel!

Praise Shpachtel the cat!

tobiasf responds:

But what about my cat. :<
Trivia: Shpachtel is pronounced similar to Spachtel in German, which is a scraper (used to screed mortar and the like). ;P
