Battle Girl : Area 61

Concept - You are a mercenary babe named BB (original!) who has been hired to clean up a mess from a failed Area 61. Lock and load your gun, cause there's a lot of 8liens ready to send you to your maker.

Current Build Download:
http://www.darkstem.com/temp/BGA61_DarkStem.zip

Controls:
Arrow keys left and right to move the character
Left Shift is to shoot
Click or Spacebar to start game
Esc while in game to exit, or click that old x

Report any bugs in this thread so I can stomp them out.
enjoy

Here are a couple current screen shots. BB is animated with her run, idle, and shooting mechanics. Bullets stay on the ground after the shell is ejected.
Background is roughed in - I'll be adding some secondary animation in there etc.

Test build is available in first post.
Here is a new screen shot.
There will be some bugs, so if/when you find any, post here so that I can track them down.
I intend to add some power ups and such as your score progresses, so look forward to that.

This looks really nice!

After game over the game froze and I had to close it in order to restart.

I get the same thing. After you restart the game it's frozen with the same stuff that was in the end of te previous game, with a new player character standing there unresponsive.

Game looks nice. Not much else to it right now other than the enemies being really hard to deal withwithout maybe a jump or another means to handle them closing in on you.

Thanks for the feedback - I believe I've crunched all known bugs and have updated it with a few bells and whistles.
There is now a level up to a machine gun to handle those nasty 8liens.
Here are some new screenshots.. updated download is in the first post up there ^

Game's looking much better now, though I still think you should add a jump or something similar there. It's amusing to kill enemies for a while, though sometimes they'll teleport right on top of you and it's very difficult to impossible to get out of the way in time.

Awesome graphics, but right now gameplay seems to consist of shooting aliens until one spawns on top of me. Like Melly, I find it mostly impossible to get out of the way in time.

Love the graphics and the sound effects!

Shooting is satisfying and solid feeling, but without variety there's not that much game to it...

I agree with the rest, enemies spawn on you and it's impossible not to get killed. Game's a bit repetitive too. The graphics are pretty nice though, I dig the color palette.  Coffee

Also it made me update my Direct X drivers for some reason. First game that asks for that, kinda weird. 40 megs download  Huh?

The character reminds me of Germi from Metal Slug, especially in how she tips her hat after running or prolonged shooting.

The game suffers from some major design bugs (haha) as previously mentioned, but considering you spent a week to make this game instead of the alloted 5, it doesn't come as too big of a surprise.  I would have liked the shoot button to be anything but shift, as that sometimes triggers keyboard accessibility shortcuts on some operating systems (eg StickyKeys on Windows).

I liked the graphics!  Wink

The basic mechanics are decent, but unfortunately, there's not much beyond them, the game gets repetitive real quick. Also, enemies spawned right in front of me a little too often.

graphics are nice, gameplay sucks. Enemy spawning right into my character sucks. Spawing enemys at all sucks. By the way your game has only one dimension, shouldn't there be at least 2?

The graphics are really nice, though the gameplay is lacking a bit. It would definintely be cool if you expanded upon this game with some platforming levels, some different enemies, and maybe even jumping Wink. I kind of get a Zombies Ate My Neighbors feeling when playing this, which I really like.
