Yeah I'm sure somebody will come up with the same idea Cactus


Maybe if you make your games a bit less generic and different, add some CREATIVITY

That's pretty much it yes. I figured it'd be an easy concept to think of so I decided I should probably make a post about it. My rendition is pretty straight forward though, so don't let me get in your way Droop

Does "Bombastic" have a fez on?

I always love your effects (like the smoke, for instance); so distinctive and quirky. Your games are always so freaking crazy, and that's what makes them so fun to play. Multi-player means more people to inundate with insanity!

Reminds me a little bit of Midway's ancient arcade game:
Gun Fight (1975)



YouTube Video

Be sure to keep that soundtrack, death animation and "GOT ME!" text.

p.s. Your knack for titles remains intact (Gamma4)
p.p.s. I think your colour schemes are amazing

So, all the gameplay mechanics are in place now, and all the in-game graphics. But I have a hard time playtesting the game.

If anyone has a friend to play with and is able to record videos of the gameplay for me, that would be awesome. If you're interested, send me a pm and I'll send a demo.

Tomorrow I'll get to gameplay modes and sound effects. Game should be done on Sunday.

Updated with bots (singleplayer), sounds and built-in control configuration. Have some more ideas to make it more interesting. So I guess the release will be early next week instead of this Sunday... Shrug

Still would love someone to record gameplay videos of playing against other humans (send me a pm)... Though the initial (lack of) feedback so far seems to suggest it's not terribly fun. Hopefully after the update it's easier to get into WTF

Progress. Though I got sidetracked for the larger part of the day. Will do the rest of the levels tomorrow if I have the time.

This looks awesome, although all the areas you've posted thus far seem about the same, layout-wise.
