Really fun, Hopping rather than directly controlling all character movement added a nice challenge for dodging bullets. Nice variety of power-ups, Sound effects were satisfying.
A few nitpicks:
- Some small enemies aren't very noticeable, especially with all the flashy visuals and explosions, I'd get hit not knowing what actually hit me. Sometimes this would happen with bullets too, but I noticed you tried to make them easy to spot, so, maybe it's the background?
- The flamethrower and shotgun power ups were generally too risky to use effectively especially when trying to go for a flawless.
-Playing on hardcore eliminated a lot of interesting mechanics, freeze + stomp was too risky, I'd end up only going for certain power- ups and spamming bombs.
-Some bosses are easily cheesed, Mashing stomp and using ultimates when they fire, Bosses were a little too bullet spongy to make the alternative any more fun.
Overall though, good job.
i love this game but the stomp is way to op
I loved this game. It's unfortunate that others were having severe problems with lag, because I thought the game flowed very smoothly for all things considered. There were rare occasions which there was lag that sent my humanoid into free-fall, but other than that, I thought the game mechanics were great. And I also loved the mix of when you had to focus on hitting enemies and when you had to focus on dodging. My favorite part of the game were the bonus levels; that was a serious but fun challenge to flawless on hard. The two recommendations I would make:
1.) This game requires a lot of patience and grinding, and, while the music was catchy, some type of back story or dialogue or something in general would have kept people interested.
2.) I think it definitely adds to the difficulty, but I think there could be more opportunities to get shields. Sometime it would happen 3 times on that level, and then other times it would take 3-4 games to ever see one of the initial perk related shield.
Great game overall that I thoroughly enjoyed
Not a bad game. While different, I think the hopping/boost up mechanic is annoying and difficult to control. Had to replay the first level several times to get the flawless because one boost up just barely bumped me high enough to bump into a bullet and lose flawless.
@NeonSpider The game doesn't lag. Honestly if you are still trying to play games on a single core computer. You probably shouldn't play anything made after 2005. I'm running on a quad core laptop from 7 years ago. No graphics card, just an APU I share my system ram with. Not a whiff of lag. So, instead of trying to whine at creators to fix things, which have been used on things as old as the NES, try spending more than $200 if you expect to play games on it.
