Great game! Thanks guys!
Im not sure if its me, but the game is very slow and non responsive I think the idea could be very fun.
I did give this a shot on firefox and chrome, and made sure to close out other tabs.
The game feels consistently sluggish.
Ive accidentally altered the framerate in my games in the past without realizing. Double check the frame rate, otherwise Im not sure what would make it so sluggish.
It's too bad I cannot review more than once I would love to play this game at its full potential
If it's just me experiencing the slowness, then by all means ignore what I said above :)
a few things
1) Increase the firing rate of the pistol. I can get out about 1 shot every 3 or 4 seconds. That is really slow... a shot ever 1/2 second would feel much better.
2) Im not sure if choosing to go with pixelated graphics is wise for this type of game. The game handles like a flash game (mouse and keyboard) and the graphics to me, dont really match the feel of the game. Using 8 bit era graphics would probably work best with games modelled after classic platformers.
3) I like the music a lot, but when combined with the aforementioned pace issue, it doesnt really work for me.
All in all, I would normally only rate this a 2.5/5 but didnt want to hurt the overall average.
In the future Id be more than happy to beta test games. Of course what I said is all subjective
I hope to see more games in the future from you!
I reckon it's really cool! one thing is i wish there was some muzzle flash and some more obnoxious bullets so i cn really feel that im hurting these guys, i cn barely see that little red dot that is my bullet xD maybe some effect that plays on impact when you hit something would be cool.
the pixel style saved the game =)
