There Is Nothing In The Air Like The High Adventure Of “High Noon Balloon”!

Hello everybody, I’ve been playing around with Stencyl lately and I finished a small game called High Noon Balloon.

It is a arcade shooter where you shoot and avoid cacti before they pop your balloon. More cacti spawn as your score goes up and there is no real ending. See how far you can get, and have fun!

kinda got tired removing my hand from my keyboard so I can grab my mouse and click the game screen to restart. I guess that's also a general flash annoyance and not just strictly you.

the hitbox on the balloon seems to be very large, there are times when I feel like I should missed an enemy but in fact died. maybe lower the pistol shooting volume, as it's very loud.

I loved the graphics and the music and for such a simple game I did find enjoyment in it.

Got to about 800 every time and then I'd slip up like a pro.  Well, hello there!

I agree with allen, I don't think there was a need to click to start again, space bar would of done the same job.

The only thing that annoyed me was the guys up the top. You can't touch them at all so you are forced to stay in the lower part of the screen, but then again that was just one of the things that made it somewhat challenging.

Other than that it is a good game. Graphics were nice.   Smiley

Thanks guys.

@Allen: Yeah I'll definitely change click to a key soon.
I can lower the gun volume and make the hitbox smaller too.

@Vinnie: I had to have a few at the top or else you could stay at the top of the screen invincible, haha


Also I'm probably going to add in some extra points for each cactus balloon you pop.

Got to 1859 points, then it got pretty impossible. Very addictive little game Coffee.

I don't have anything to add to earlier proposals. After you add those, it will be perfect Tongue.

Cute pixel art and neat little game. Different enemy types and something like powerups would be nice.

I like the art a lot but more visual feedback on shooting would be nice. Like a gun recoil and a firecone or something.

Got to a 1000 btw.

High score of 4552. Just keep on spamming the 'a' button whilst moving up and down. Enemies spawn offscreen, so you can hit them before they even get into the view.

Edit: New high score of 6651.

Got to about 3000 and it was a bit challeging but I would like to get some powerups and some other types of enemies, maybe some birds or something that chase you and try to hit your ballon.

I have to agree with Fredrik, a little variety in the enemies would go a long way. Some different gun types or other power-ups like he mentioned would be great too.

Enemies and power ups are defiantly a possibility, but with other projects and school the priority is lower.

Thanks everyone again for the feedback! Glad you all think it's a fun little game.
