I really like this game. The graphics are great, as is the music and gameplay, and even the dialogue =P

Can we be expecting a sequel?

Loved the game, my review is attached.

Great game! I now know that my space shooter would not have stood a chance!
Nighthawk commented February 07, 2008 at 10:25 PM
@ marbs: Yes first I'm going to expand on the original, in sort of an in between, a version 1.5 if you will, so that you won't feel lost in the sequel, then I will make a sequel. Both the in between AND the sequel will allow you to play as the "Badguy"(?) (I won't spoil the ending to this one.)

@luda: Love the review, thanks! :D

@Xxy: I'd love to see it though, are you submitting it to the archive? Or did you not finish it?

The only thing I disagree with in Ludas review is it being too fast. Other than that he pretty much summed up my view.
Nighthawk commented February 07, 2008 at 11:30 PM
A lot of people thought it was too fast. I personally thought it was fine, but maybe the next one will be a little slower, with some sort of powerup to increase movement speed.

I found the speed fine. Main thing I cringed at was the lack of variable jumping. And how I couldn't make the cutscenes fade faster. And how the boss shouldn't of had health powerups(lower the boss health too, bit boring when it lasts so long)

T'was great.
My game is currently beating this in the polls, but had I not already voted, this would be my choice. seriously.
Nighthawk commented February 08, 2008 at 12:16 AM
Hehe, thanks PY! If it makes you feel better I'll vote for mine too, I loved your entry by the way! Haven't played Bakery ******** yet, but so far yours is my fave! Besides mine of course, but I can't help but be biased, I practically lived at my computer for two days to do it!
ludamad commented February 08, 2008 at 2:38 AM
I said the game was too fast for a non-moving background :P
Nighthawk commented February 08, 2008 at 2:52 AM
So it'd be okay if I were to implement that?

A very good game for a two day competition, and if it only takes you two days for this, I would like to see your unlimited time games. 9/10

I see where you got the block sprites from..
PY commented February 08, 2008 at 4:48 PM
@FCT, It would have taken me far longer to do mine if it weren't timed, that's for sure.
@IoS, he made them himself, during the 2 days, that was a rule.
Nighthawk commented February 08, 2008 at 8:05 PM
Yes, they were all done by me, where did you think I got them from Ice?
mrpete commented February 08, 2008 at 9:07 PM
It's play style has a lot classic tones in it. Well done for the time put into it..

I rate: 7/10
Alert Games commented February 09, 2008 at 2:22 PM
For two days time this game is awesome! But no credits! T_T it just ends. needed credit music with epic credits like a movie.

anyway, graphics were great. great quick style that doesnt look bad at all. music was pretty good, though that guitar was a little loud.

i didnt think the game was fast, but i think the spinning things should hvae slowerd down a little,.

10/10

Nice little game. I played it all the way through. The boss battle at the end was far too easy, seeing as how the health bonus reappeared faster than I could even lose one bar of health. Also, I found the background tunes rather annoying- but I rarely enjoy game music.

Fun game :)
ludamad commented February 09, 2008 at 4:37 PM
Heh. Alert, credits aren't possible in a game where you can only use 10 specific setences.
s commented February 09, 2008 at 6:51 PM
Yes they are, just use avatars instead of names
YemSalat commented February 09, 2008 at 8:10 PM
Great game! I liked the cutscenes a lot as well as the level design.
9/10! This game keeps you entertained from the beginning to the end!
Nighthawk commented February 09, 2008 at 8:17 PM
Credits with avatars huh? Well that'd be short seeing as there'd be just one avatar scrolling past the screen. And I wouldn't be able to use mine anyway, seeing as it has my username on it. :P

@PY: There is some blocks that looks exactly like that in a game called Red Hero =S
JW commented February 10, 2008 at 4:18 PM
Graphics are cool, ending is cool, gameplay is meh.
