Can't download it(slow internet) but it looks cool. I suggest changing the tagline because at first I came to laugh at what I thought was going to be a bad game where people said good things to make you feel better. But now I'm just left impressed :(

Well, you tried my game, so I figured I'd try yours. :)

First of all, I wouldn't recommend quoting your parents' praise in the sub-title. Frankly, I don't think it's helping you any more than just putting "A 2D shooter game."

Onto the game itself... It's honestly pretty decent. It works pretty well, but it suffers the classic GM issue of not being able to move diagonally to the right if you're shooting. It's also kind of weird to be able to shoot houses and subs on the ground and other planes in the air with the same gun. I know you hit airborne enemies before the ones on the ground, but you still might wanna make it so you have to bomb them or something.

I also don't know if it's just me, though, but the first level was boring. I know it's only the first level, but I don't like to start thinking "When will this END???" after about a third of the way through. There should also be more of a strategy to the boss than "follow its path and shoot."

On the bright side, I like the little details, like how explosions seem to trail to the ground when you blow something up, and how debris comes flying off when you're shooting something. The sound effects are nice, as is the fact that you put your friends in the game.

I made some of the graphics, the planes were 3d models I got for free and I turned them into gifs frame by frame (there's probably an easier way, but I don't know what software.) The explosions were the same explosions you see everywhere lol.

lol I guess i'll change the quotes but at least I got a good laugh from posting them :lol:

The levels are kind of a clusterfudge because my room got so big that the tile editor would lag really bad, and it would take forever to place new tiles. The next version is probably going to be less blocky and more object oriented tiles. I'll probably end up rendering 3d terrain and converting it into images. The gameplay will also probably be more spread out, with tougher enemies further apart, and less focus on bombarding the screen with pleebs.

Also, that is not a GM issue, but a keyboard related issue. Certain keyboards cannot handle certain combinations simultaneously. In the next version it will be possible to use WSAD keys.
