Timothy's Adventure

by FenrisWolf - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Here's a neat little shooter. Upgrade your gun, kill guys, get killed, admire your mustache! You know the drill! Enjoy!

Really quite addictive. Though there seems to be a bug where the game will sometimes skip a level.

Good basic stuff! Silly, but "fun" in the same way that all of these types of games are fun.

A few criticisms:
1) The guitar loop gets REALLY grating after about 10 seconds.

2) It's weird that if you leave the level at the bottom of the screen, the lines slide towards the bottom. If you think about it, it should be the opposite (exit bottom, animate the lines moving upwards).

3) Seems odd that the game doesn't pause when you hit the shop.

I love mustache.

Nothing like a good top-down shooter :D Good job. Only issue I had is sometimes the yellow border sticks around, causing a skippage of levels.

I LOVE the guitar loop and don't care what anybody else says. It lends a GREAT playful feel to the whole thing. Well done :)

I really enjoyed my time with this game. I found the gameplay to be pretty solid and the amount of variation in the enemies in combination with the shop upgrades kept it fun for a good while.

I do have a couple things that I'd like to nitpick about though:

I feel like the graphics where a little weak. I understand it's meant to be simple but they lacked some style. (Except the bad ass player with his top hat.) I also found that the particles often hid bullets, especially the little red lightning bolts which was pretty annoying.

The music was fairly nice but looped far too quickly and the lack of sound effects was a bit of a shame.

Other than that though I had a good amount of fun with this game and by the end I was the destroyer of all things. (I also think the game might have glitched and made me invincible.)

None the less, good game. Well done!

Kept me playing longer than I thought ;) The shop mechanic with the upgradable weapons was a nice touch.

It's fun, gets a bit repetitive but it's simple and fun.

Seen other games like this in the competition, but this is one of the mos addictive ones :)

This really was quite addictive. Shooting around somewhat senselessly was pretty amusing, and the gun upgrades were also pretty fun to play with. The only thing I wasn't very impressed with were the graphics. The colors could have been nicer to look at. Overall, it was pretty good. Quite enjoyable!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
