I found it difficult to fly around. My jetpack would stop unpredictably. Sometimes I would end up walking in mid air. I wasn't certain what I was supposed to do.

You might want to add the key controls. I spent the first few minutes trying to figure out how to shoot.

The game plays well and is easy to launch. It is also nice of you to include source code. I did feel that the music fits the game nicely. The platformer mechanics feel solid and work well. I would have liked a more complex map tho. I couldn't really find any good place to shoot from. Most targets just floated through the floor of the platform you spawn on. Nice work!

@SusanTheCat
Added the controls.
I may have made the jetpack use too much fuel, I will try to fix it.

@Zoomyzoom
What do you mean?

@Jiddo
I actually planned to include a story mode, with a better map and more mobs, but unfortunately I didn't have enough time this weekend.

Good overall. Pretty fun. Difficult.

An indicator for jetpack fuel would be good because it looked like it used some kind of charging mechanic whereby you can go higher if you wait longer (at least it seemed like it to me).

I think there should be more space between the player and where the dudes spawn. It feels a little cramped.

Good work overall! Carry on!

I would like if there were more kind of enemies.
Moreover I can't figure out how the jetpack fuel consumption works! Its autonomy is different from time to time.

Definitely could use a lot more visual feedback such as a score and fuel counters. The enemies don't actually threaten the small world, instead they threaten the player so I was a bit confused as to how I would protect it.

Good job overall; this is a good start to--what I feel could be--a longer, more in-depth game. Also, is there a score counter that I missed? Thanks!

The controls are interesting. It would be nice if you could add stages, and a certain challenge or goal per level.

Like it's been said before. The game needs some scoring. It also looks like you can't really die? Just adding a high score, death and a game over screen would improve the game immensely and give player's some challenge and feedback.

Work on the feel of the jet pack (it's a little too heavy\weighty now) and have some more interesting enemy patterns. Enemies that chase you would be a good start (http://flashgamedojo.com/wiki/index.php?title=Homing_Missile). More levels would be a good next step.

Nice simple platform-shooter with a fitting soundtrack.

Good audio and quite hard.

an arena shooter huh. i felt like the player was far too slow and unintuitive to use, in arena shooters they have to be quick! bouncing all over and firing rapidly! i liked how the uh, enemies? targets flowed nice in time with the music, was that an algorithm or were they just scripted that way?

Loved the bass of the music got me really pumped up :). Controls are a little tricky. But overall real nice game.

May 5, 2012 @ 12:22pm

Thank you everyone for rating!
@angrygeometry:The last thing I added was the music, that was just a coincidence. (actually didn't notice it until you said it)

@Impossible: There is a score feature, once you die after being hit 6 times by the enemies, it shows you your score.

@zazery, R3ason, aquasheep: I will look into adding new enemies and score/fuel counters on my next game, to provide better visual feedback, thanks!

Wat. I simply stood on the right floating platform and all the enemies spawned to the left of me.

The gameplay wasn't very good. Enemies and bullets travelling through walls, jetpack cutting out, no motivation to move around the world, and so on.

There's no indication of your score, how many more hits you can take, or the jetpack's fuel, if it does use fuel of course. Not having this information is kind of annoying.

One good thing that stuck out for me was the music; that was pretty cool.

Interesting but it was hard to control.

Very hard to control with an AZERTY keyboard. But good job ! :)
