A gang of theives have invaded planet Pistolia and disabled their power shields, by stealing the power diamonds! Without the power diamonds, Pistolia is in grave threat from future attacks! However, not all hope is lost as famed superhero, Cowgirl Crusader, has arrived to save the day and restore the power shields! Traverse through multiple worlds and shoot all of the theieves to restore the shields in this retro platformer adventure!

MAJOR UPDATE: project is now radically expanded with enhanced graphics, additional levels that make up nine total worlds, new FPS levels, a proper pause system, new enemies, new bosses, new endings to find, and various other mechanics fixes to sand off those rough edges! This is the final update for the project, I promise! Hope you all enjoy!

Aside from what has already been stated (of which I agree with) the only other thing I would criticize would be its timer mechanic.

Being an incorrigible explorer, I'd have much preferred for there to be a "time points" score as the reason for using the timer, instead of killing the character when the time runs out. Not everybody's into speed runs...

KobaltSteel responds:

Hmm... good point... I'll keep this in mind

What it lacks in visuals, I think mechanically it's a pretty good setup as a prototype, I think if you were to take some time and refine how it works both functionally and visually, this could actually be pretty fun as an arcade style game!
I think perhaps one change I would make is to incorporate the large text intro scene into the actual game in some form, perhaps make it so another character is talking to you, so that it makes the world feel a bit more fleshed out, otherwise, it really just needs some refinement!
