What is this thread about?
8 July 2012: Episode 2 published and looking for feedback.
19 June 2012: Exploring ideas for expanding on the rotation mechanic for episode 2.
28 May 2012: Created thread for feedback on episode 1 gameplay.
I'm new to TigSource. I've previously spent a lot of time in XNA community and built a few modest titles on the XBLIG platform, but for this project I wanted to target the browser and so turned to Flash.
This game is called Spin Spin. It is a blend of VVVVVV and And Yet It Moves, but truthfully I only discovered And Yet It Moves after building 90% of Spin Spin and have still not played it. VVVVVV was the real inspiration, and a strong one at that.
I'm going down the path of episodic content. I've basically completed episode 1, and am looking for general feedback on how to improve all aspects of the game for future episodes. Graphics, music, sounds, story, concept, gameplay... bring it!
I'm open to updating episode 1 as well, to address balancing issues, etc. I intentionally kept this episode simple to prove whether the core mechanic is fun, so you will notice it is pretty bare boned.
You can play it here:http://www.spinsp.in/episode-1.htm
One issue that I know exists is that I embedded the music in the SWF file so the game takes a while to load and doesn't have a loading screen. Please be patient.
Haven't gotten around to fixing that yet.
Thanks in advance for any and all feedback!
FYI, I'm in Australia so apologies in advance if I take a while to respond to comments in this thread.
