Reviews for "Tropical Dragon Slaughter"

AWZUM

I GOTS PAST THE 1ST 1/4 OF THE 1ST LEVEL WITH A BONUS!!!

Sweet!!!

Nice, fast paced scrolling shooter. Also, extra points for using the Tyrian Stalker ship sprite.

TYRIAN!!!

Awww...I miss that game...

epic game.

but it could use a couple small mods,
1) ability to turn, especially on "the deep".
2) in technobauble, the enemies need to stop spawning on you.
3) a bar for the duration of the powerups would be nice.

Well..

To be quite honest, the game itself isn't 'that' bad. I enjoyed parts of it, though it were a bit too standard all in all for my tastes. The biggest turn-off for me, however, had to be the fact that you stole almost every single aspect of the graphics from a classic, Tyrian.

As someone who's been working on development teams for roughly 10 years or more, I understand not wanting to do your own artwork, but.. You should at least find someone willing to help you out for free/cheap. There's lots of people out there willing to do the job, as it's good exposure for them. I'm gonna have to rate this low, for lack of original work.

Gameplay - 5/10 Too standard, could've used a bit more complexity.
Sound - 4/10 Wasn't really a fan of the music, to be honest and the sound effects were few and standard.
Graphics - 1/10 Taken from another game.

Overall - 0/10 Like I said, the whole thing lacks originality from start to finish. It's also bothersome that this isn't the first game you've taken the Tyrian graphics from. (Eruption, even Xue to a degree. Haven't bothered playing your others.) Really mate, work on getting some original art.
