Hey guys this is indieus from YellowMonkey (our indie collab studio here in India). I should have posted this thread long back when it was in the making to get some critical feedback.Oh well, no worries ! More competitions should be around the corner Smiley

This is my first solo Flash/Flixel effort. Touched programming after a long long time and felt good to be back ! It started off trying to take cheap shot at Angry birds but after I discovered an awesome soundtrack from ccmixer , the sound really drove my direction for the game, now called Volcano Brothers. My default template was 480x320 so I ended up making the game small sized, sorry for that !


Initial Concept




Changed to fit the music

Im not completely done with the game , there was a lot more I wish I could do before submitting the game. But Im happy to at lest have a playable with me. So here is my entry.


Controls: Player 1 : S/D for direction , Space bar for shoot
Player 2 : Left/Right for direction , R.Control for shoot

You can add power to your shot by simply keeping the shoot button pressed

Backstory : Two brothers punished for their sins on earth. Trapped inside a volcano they still keep fighting, blaming each other for their current state. Its their hatred that causes volcanoes to erupt, a common spectacle for the flame spirits residing within.

You can play it here: http://www.yellowmonkeystudios.com/blog/2011/02/27/versus-entry-volcano-brothers/

Music  Credits: Brad Sucks - Dirtbag (Blackberry's Dirtbeat Remix) on ccMixer,

Personal Notes:
Im not sure how far I can take it from here , initially the plan was to have fireballs with different curves and timings (think Bit trip Beat) however I really fell short on time. Some other ideas were to make breakable environment and have more control over the fired shots. I missed out on animated lava / animated flame shots as well. I have been very liberal with hit areas for the fireball making the game relatively easy.Please leave your insights behind !

Very demo-y, but it has obvious potential and is a nice romp with a friend.
It needs a preloader, I thought flixel gave you one though...

Great graphics & music.
We had trouble playing it though, because:
1. In internet explorer, Ctrl+D is a shortcut to add a new favorite, so it constantly stopped the game for us, was very annoying.
2. It tooks us a while to figure out that we should be aiming at the fireballs and not at each other (and I'm still not completely sure if that's what we need to do). I would add instructions for what your goal is, and also would add some sign (visual + sfx) for when we hit a fireball, to help make this clearer.

^ thanks for the feedback. I knew IE would definitely cause a problem, but i assumed most players would be suing FF or GC. I have added a direct link to the swf in the OP so you can download to your desktop Smiley

 Big Laff well I had hoped figuring out that you don't have to aimlessly hit each other would be part of the fun Smiley It is definitely lacking a lot of visual/aural feedback (Also wanted to have damage visually shown on the statutes) I will be revisiting this soon to make it more playable.

 Beer! Cheers !
