This is definitely very cool, I liked how the game forced you to constantly absorb enemies instead of finding one you like and using it forever. Re: attack power, I don't know if you even need to show it, I never looked at it personally.

Yeah, several files in the torrent are making Avira go "OMG IT'S A VIRUS KILLITKILLIT EEEEK".

I need a better anti-virus. Maybe it's time I shelled out some money to get Kaspersky.

That's not necessarily good news; but im glad its not just my game  Screamy

Maybe the games that aren't zipped, and are just stand alone exes, flag it? idn.

Ah yes. I was trying to decide weather or not to include it ... but (for example) the character who shoots the "spiky sticks" (the one whose jaw drops up and down) has an attack that does 4X as much damage as the stock character, and I some how wanted to let people know....was it easy to infer that after killing things with it?

Yeah, it was pretty easy to tell enemies went down quicker when you had an upgrade, Plus gamers probably already have it drilled into them from years of games that powerups are good Tongue

The trailer you made was appealing, so I played the current build. There's some neat stuff going on here, I enjoyed it.

It's good to see the way you approached the visuals in your game. I'm currently making a top down shooter with abstract visuals, and I've been mulling over how to give it a decent amount of personality. Your game is a good influence- I like the way your visuals are fairly abstract, but they still have character. It's encouraging to see that.

Best wishes!

Thanks a lot sparky; ill make sure David gets the message. I'm very glad our game could serve as an influence -- returning the favor I guess because your games have been very influential to me as well. (Star Guard in particular)

Thanks!  Smiley

I really enjoy the visuals in this game.  The gameplay however leaves something to be desired.  It remindes me a bit of tumiki fighter, but with less build-up, because it seems you can only take on one enemy shape at a time(?).  As I mentioned, I do really like the strong and attractive style.  Nice work.

Thanks a lot for posting feedback, its is much appreciated!

@Liquid Ash -- beside taking on multiple enemy shapes, what would you suggest to help strengthen the game play of the game? Any additional thoughts will help much!

First let me repeat that I am impressed with your entry in this competition.  Aside from allowing the player to take on multiple shapes at once, I think it would be cool to integrate the visual style further into the gameplay.  In fact having more spuradic bullet patterns that change/evolve with each enemy power absorbed could be interesting.  On a seperate note, I didn't find the absorb butten very compelling.  I think the typical collide with dropped power-up mechanic would work better.  In fact, it took a few games of me looking back at the instructions to figure out how that worked: right arrow was an odd choice of control, it only works with some enemies, and only for a short time after they've been killed.  Best!

A well-constructed shmup with attractive visuals and a Tumiki Fighters/Kirby-esque power-stealing mechanic? Can't go wrong with that! This was a fantastic game.

I also found the different powers to be unique and reasonably balanced, so there's no problems there.

If I had any criticism, it would be that the difficulty curve is a bit uneven. It takes a while to reach the first checkpoint, which makes the first part of the stage the hardest part of the game until the boss. But really, that's just a tiny criticism of an otherwise great game.

If you continue working on this project, I would eagerly anticipate the final release. Not that the current version is lacking.

Exactly; I just popped in to congratulate on finishing this great game. Although the art style isn't my thing, the fact that it was original and that it was backing up an enjoyably fresh game mechanic deserves props. The difficulty was right and the power-ups felt balanced too.
