Cool, I like the idea!
my only thought would be to put a little bit of buildup on the ball direction - I like things to kinda amp up to flat-nacker rather than going full speed ahead no matter what. Obviously in this instance it'd have to be a really quick amp-ing, but I think it'd add another level.
I like it, it's cool. Man if I coded that it'd run like a sack of crap filled with copious numbers of if statements so I can only say, radcore, I'm jealous of your ability to make something like that run so smoothly.
That said it's the same old thing - I think what would lift the game is to either a. make it more like missile defence and have slower moving projectiles, meteors from outer space and you're firing rockets or something (which has also been done I guess) - or rather have rockets coming at you that can take some serious hits - give the enemy some meat to hit, not just a string but a plane body or something, and make the bullets just bullets with no explosion radius, and able to hit no matter where you click (ie they don't explode where you clicked, just fire off in that direction) - I'd personally get off big time with some of that rapid fire scripting you've done if it was more machine-gunny. Add some background burning cityscape or something, more german planes, make the defence look like WW2 AA guns and you've got yourself a real winner!
That or just do nothing - you seem happy with it, and it's pretty cool so well done :)
If you do take my opinion to heart and make that machine-gunning kind of defence out of this, feel free to PM me I'll be gagging to give it a go!
not so good
I liked your initial effort 'na - i'm gonna fuck up your house' and then proceeding to do shit to the house, that was good. But then you got to this lame (soundless) shooting thing which was crap, and the end was crap. The idea had potential but you went too far with the lame ultra violence. That wasn't even the cutest cat picture by far - just put more work in next time and you'll do better. stretching the middle bit out more would've been good, but no.
You say yourself, 'this is the BASICS'. Ie. anyone with half an ounce of intelligence could figure out how to animate fire - and better than that mind you. (It's better if the 'slithers' of fire sorta bubble up in about 4 frames, rather than jumping side to side). I was thinking, oh cool I'll learn how to animate really sexy fire, but no! You should really teach how to use the mouse and open Flash first, that's about the level of this. Come on man!
im sorry you feel that way....on the contrary i couldn't give a shit
This was great fun - I ended up dying due to clicking back into newgrounds and taking too long to get back on level 10 .. i guess there's nothing you can do to stop people being stupid like that heh. The sound got messed up, playing over itself later on which was a problem. This is a fantastic little game! Great effort!
Trying to be constructive here - you need some sound effects, and less writing. The graphics are great though!
Very cool - I actually had a little trouble figuring out I was supposed to press space bar, and then I was just jumping it at the times that pacmans came past low enough - took me a death and a 'that can't be it, surely' to figure out you could move sideways. You could improve it by having a countdown timer on the time limit, that'd be good. It's quite cool I enjoyed it, the music was good the explosion animation and everything is nicely done, the physics is well coded - great little game!
I know I'm going to cop flak for not instantly voting 5 on anything Joe squeezed out 4 years ago, but nevermind. I just got bored, the brown noser wasn't particularly amusing, the dialouge wasn't REALLY funny. I didn't smile at all. I mean it's alright, but it's not the finest thing NG has ever seen - I'd think a high 3 score would be more appropriate.
Shooting yourself in the foot
You're really crippling your abilities of success here by just calling it what you have, one giant word which on first glance looks like a keyboard mash.
It's good, it's well animated and your sfx are great. Nothing new at all though, as much as I hate reviews saying this it's true. You could also put in some health bars or something, make it two player and have the 1st guys controls on the left of the keyboard.
This is a great little game, you should put it into your future preloaders or something!
