This is a very nice, smooth, and playable arcade game that I highly recommend playing. It is well polished and had some great sound effects and music. Good work orange08! :smile:

I love being in 3th place.

Edit:
Strike that, 1th is a much better position to be in. :rolleyes:

@JonathanP
After a little bit of aggravation I managed to beat your score, TWICE! :P

@Big_J
Glad you like it :)

The game has been updated to V 1.1
Look at the changelog to see the changes: http://pastebin.com/WXyCxeik
The most important change is the addition of stats. The game now keeps track of statistics such as deaths, rockets frozen, shots missed, etc.

@Orange08 and JonathanPzone

Argh, damnit :). I liked having second place.

Most of the challenge in this game is fair and challenging, but I can't help but think there are some really cheap moments of death here and there. For example, when I used my 'zoom thingy' with right mouse button, I wasn't expecting to be able to die whilst doing it. I'm not sure if that's unfair or not; I hate challenging games that are made dumber and easier for people to play. So long as they have a fair challenge.

EDIT: Haha, I love how it says "1th place" like orange wasn't expecting anyone to beat him :D.

I got my 1328 score and I'm proud.

This game is like the best candlewax. It's candlewax and it's the best. You can burn it and watch it burn but you can also light it with a match. But it's also like best cilantro, because you smell it but you're not sure what you're smelling. And it's also like bleach, because you can't rub it in your eyes. And it's also like pistachios, because you're not sure what you're eating when you try to eat it. And it's also like that dog you ran over this morning, because you feel bad for running over it but then you go back and do it again.

Well done.

Also you need a mode where it's only red rockets and meteors otherwise it's eternally incomplete.

Hey, you might consider a script to decide what letters to append to a number, example "1st", "2nd", "3rd", "4th".

I think my code could possibly be simplified, but it works. :lol:

rank_suffix
var rank, suffix, srank;
rank = argument0;
srank = string(rank);

if (string_length(srank) == 2)
{
    if (rank < 21 && rank > 9)
    {
        suffix = "th";
    }
    else
    {
        switch (string_char_at(srank, string_length(srank)))
        {
            case "1": suffix = "st"; break;
            case "2": suffix = "nd"; break;
            case "3": suffix = "rd"; break;
            default: suffix = "th"; break;
        }
    }
}
else
{
    switch (string_char_at(srank, string_length(srank)))
    {
        case "1": suffix = "st"; break;
        case "2": suffix = "nd"; break;
        case "3": suffix = "rd"; break;
        default: suffix = "th"; break;
    }
}
return srank + suffix;

code:
var rank;
rank = floor(random(1000) + 1)
show_message("You got " + rank_suffix(rank) + "place!");

Game updated to V 1.2, all links are up to date!
Big_J's script is used in the new version!

2 new modes have been added, "grapzap" mode, and "red and showers" mode.
Grapzap mode may be fun for those of you who want to play the game at a lesser difficulty.
Easy mode has been made slightly easier, the red arrow warning for when a rocket is coming warns you sooner, meteorite showers come slightly less often.

Other changes/additions are listed in the ChangeLog: http://pastebin.com/WXyCxeik
Happy leaping!

Excellent game! Havn't played it since the jam version, and it is so good now, the addiction factor is ridiculous!

Edit:

Finally! :D

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature,
nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits
in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

I took 10th place a couple of days ago on my first re-session, so I'm optimistic I'll be the world champ again before too long! :yes:
Congrats on beating me though, I remember setting that record took me ages!

You can only imagine my devastation when the game froze at this point:

I was on such a roll, I thought I would make 3000 or even more! And I just picked up a Jetpack for more mega heights!

I don't know if it's a bug, but this jam actually happened just as a meteor shower was about to fall (so in the picture, the countdown has taken place and the meteors are just off screen).

Well, I have technically beaten you :P Even if the score will never be submitted!! Here's what it took (probably excluding the last run):

Blegh... I'll do a bit of testing to see if that glitch is repeatable. Maybe some objects somewhere aren't getting destroyed.

Sometime soon I'll use some of my magic to give you that as your online highscore. Could be a couple of days before I'm un-lazied enough to do it.

I've finally had a chance to try out the update (it nearly made me late for work this morning), and loving it so far. So many highscores to earn and trophies to unlock- good work orange08!
