That's exactly what I thought!
Mrdiver, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's seen that movie :)
Some have said this is Metroid mixed with Dead Space, but I disagree. It lacks the fast paced, sheer thrill of running around shooting up creatures that Metroid has. This is more slow paced and stead, with a more solid storyline and a bit more passive. Not that that's a bad thing though! It's way more of an Event Horizon/Dead Space crossbreed. If you haven't seen the movie (Event Horizon) you really should it's a good film. I enjoyed this game thoroughly. Some Graphic violence and horror themes. I think Sergei moves a little slow and the bosses were way to easy, but everything else was great. Also, maybe making the up arrow key button point the gun upwards and space be for jumping. Firing the gun with Ctrl maybe? Anyway, good game. I had fun.
To avoid being to repetitive I'm just gonna list the problems I noticed. Jumping into/ through platforms, very silly physics. The hitscan was awkward. The first time I played a bit I jumped up and nothing happened. After I died and was sent back to the beginning I did the same exact jump and part of the roof hit me. I'm just wondering why it hit the the second time and not the first.
I think you should at least credit the original game in the description, you know as your muse or something? All in all it was somewhat glitchy and actually more frustrating then the original due to the wonky scripting.
This happens to me a lot while I'm doing things in parallel with playing games on Newgrounds. The cure you may ask? Try clicking on the game screen.
Now the game. It was an "ok" game. The movement was extremely sporadic which made it hard to fight the enemies. The enemies had far to much health (in my opinion) and when they'd hit you, you lost to much health.
You deserved the award you got and the front page.
Good job, Over all
It's a fun little game with good graphics and simple game play. It's addictive too. It would be a bit better if the planet changed positions every so often to continue to challenge the player. The stars giving extra points was a nice touch too.
This was great. A great way to practice my action script by looking at what you've done. I got the Ion beam and the DNA down myself and downloaded the matrix and fireworks. I hope you don't mind is i barrow (steal) the DNA thing and The Ion thing and give you credit and the original creater of these cuz you're right, the effects are sick-ass. Anyway i would love to see more from you and am looking forward to the game you mentioned.
I'd love to see my effects in your submission whenever you submit it. Remember to PM me the link whenever you publish it.
I was a part of this! Maybe i should go on the forums more often. Anyway that art was pretty good from all perspectives. some were awesome (The Unknown being one) some being just ok (like masked general) and a few bad ones. The Bob one was hilarious! The music was a perfect choice for the art that was displayed here.
So yeah, 10/10 5/5
But seriously the Bob thing... That creature must be ignolaged and destroyed.
Lol Bob is really popular.
It wasn't bad. there were some little movements that were choppy and not to great. the art could have been better.
What i really didn't like was the repetitiveness and lack of creativity in the death choices. the tweens you used were not good. fairly low quality tweens. The last bad thing is that stabbing affects. you need to learn to mask or cut half of the body off the guy and layer that half over the main body. then place the sword in a layer in between.
I did have fun choosing the deaths though and watching what would happen next.
this was hard. i got to question 53 before i lost =P. it's really hard and very very clever. I'm glad you made this and hope you make a third some day. it test my mind skillz =D
This was funny
it was funny. it reminded me of MSpaint. i had a good few minutes while playing this. unfortunately it get boring pretty fast.
The blood was perfectly draw and animated, the guns looked cooler then ever and the over-all art was great too. the storyline (and graphics) have immensely improved from the first one! it was kinda disappointing that you can't get the coolest costumes in the Newgrounds version. The addition of a melee weapon was good too.
The only problem was for me that it was kinda confusing and hard to do when you switch weapons in that you might throw your main one and not be able to get the one you wanted because of hordes of enemies coming at you.
Over all it was really good 10-10
