Loved this one! A very awesome take on the theme, and you got the aesthetic down to a tee! My only gripe is that it was tough to remember what each shape did- maybe a billboard that had the shapes on it in-game?

Either way, great work and this is definitely one of my favorite entries so far!

Nice clean crisp graphics and style. It would be nice if it were easier to tell the score of each type of box without having to remember them.

This tutorial is completely copied with Coursera. This is really bad!!!
How could you do this to us? You broke our hearts!

This game does actually look nice!
But I can't relay do anything. The Frame does always freeze at my PC (Win 7)!
I would appreciate it If you go ahead and look at my Game!

Amazing game! Maybe the concept wasn't very innovative but the game itself was super fun and the highscore really makes you want to play more. Good job

This is based on the Box Shooter project on the Coursera course (that's why I am not including art or music for judging) but the code is all mine! I had to do a complete overhaul of the code to create the unique functionality found in this game. I will post the source.

Good game! I enjoyed playing it and I set a score of something like 1535 or so. This seems like it could be good training for somebody who wants to get better at point aiming for FPS games. Maybe you could turn this into a full on FPS training system.

Rescue Chicken got me here.
I liked the game. (it was a bit laggy on my slow laptop.) but i got the Idea. I would have prefered more shapes for the targets. I'didnt know which one i could shoot after start playing.

Overall it was great.

The idea is pretty fun! And visually, it kinda felt a bit like Tron! :P Wonder if that's how you feel if arena shooters become full 3D. :P

Controls work great, but an autorifle could pump some more action into the game (and add that tension of not shooting by accident :P).

Great entry! Nice work! :)
