Great game, I really liked this one. It would have been nice to see some more background graphics. I thought the abrupt ending was fun :)

Really liked this, the shooting mechanic is well designed. It's a shame it ends quickly :(
Liked the ending, though :D

The ending was really clever, and gets a couple of extra stars from me by itself. I wasn't sure how I feel about the dialogue stopping the action though.

Congrats on your first dare, ericdpitts. I hope you learned a lot and had plenty of fun doing it. :)

Had fun playing with the mechanics at play in this game. I really enjoyed the "rocket" jump. Loved the ending. Thanks for making this.

This was a fairly interesting game. The Rocket-jumping style gameplay was fun in a form. But yeah the game could have used some background, at times it was sorta hard to say where the camera was in relation to the player.

And speaking of cameras, it was a bit annoying as it was floating around constantly, but resetting the camera usually helped.

Fun game. The ability to use your gun to propel yourself allowed for some intersting gameplay. The graphics and sound are decent, too. It's a shame that it's so short.

My graphics card isn't meet the requirements? You must be kidding! Or maybe you have put together something really cool what can't be shown in pictures...

@rawbits

Hmm, that's strange. Most any graphics card should be capable of running this, it's just simple 2D sprites. What graphics card do you have, and what is displayed when you try to run it?
