Description:
CNR, a fun fast arcade shmup game with bullet hell elements. Online highscores to allow you to compete with others. I actually made this game for a friend of mine to cheer him up because we thought he had stumoch ulcers. It turned out he had an infection that causes stumoch ulcers but he is now recovering. The point of the game is that you are inside your self, (yep this makes no sense), and you are shooting tablets at the ulcers to destroy them. Yaaayyy!
This is actually my first finished game created with game maker. (I've been around for years but spent a whole bunch of time on c++ development with the allegro api.) I had many other features planned such as more enemys and a more in depth highscore system and many more power ups but I'd rather move on to bigger and better things and not leave this little project to fade away.

I made everything including the graphics, music and sound effects from scratch minus a couple of drum samples and I used gml_josea's highscore example as a base for my system. Hopefully I'll have more games for you guys real soon!

Great game. Needs a little bit of tweaking in my opinion. The falling speed is a bit to fast and you should be warned by some sort of object, make a flashing orb of color, that tells you where an enemy is going to spawn. Overall great game, looks very profesional. Keep up the good work.

Thanks very much for the feedback. :)
I'll go ahead and change those things.

Edit:
I added in warning signs and altered the gravity.

Nice. Maybe tweak the upward acceleration a bit. Also something to diversify the game would be nice. Like a minigame drop, where some type of item falls and if you catch it you get to play a minigame for points or time. Also a pause button would be nice and an option to mute the sound and another to mute the music (even though the music is epic).

Thanks again for the feedback, I'll try and implement those ideas at some point today. ^_^

Sounds good. You also might want to submit your game to gamejolt. Nice community there.

Thanks for showing a real interest in this game. :) Yep, I'm on holiday right now though so no progress apart from some bugs fixed. I should be able to get out a new version some time this week. That being said the next update will probably be the final one. I've got some new stuff in the works now. :P

Sure, I could send you the source when I get back and let you play around with it if you'd like? It's a little messy I think and I didn't comment much at all but other than that it should be easy enough to tinker with it.

Sounds great? So your done with the project completely? I think it has great potential. Well if you have other projects to do, I guess I could try to tinker with it when I have time. Im working on another game currently.

Yup, I think so. I might come back to it at some point after I've made a few more games though. I'd like to have 3 or 4 finished to pad out my website a little.
Yeah, I think it's pretty fun just to mess around with other peoples code. Let me know when you have a demo of the game your making and I'll check it out. :)
