Unbearable

I played through the first couple of levels, but I couldn't take it anymore. Everything works fine, the graphics look good, the music is clear and fluid, it doesn't take very long to load at all, but the frame rate is horrendous. The graphics don't actually lag, it's smooth and fluid, just SLOW. Unbearably slow. It took me like 45 minutes to beat the first level and the timer had only shown a passage of 2-3 minutes. I can't handle that. I understand the idea of moving forward with new technologies and such, but I can't imagine this game need to rely on Flash 11. Though the graphics look good, some of your other submissions look better. It seems it would have looked just as good had you made the game playable without having to access our graphic card, as I haven't seen anyone say the graphics of this game are anything more than normally good. I refrained from giving less than 3, because what makes it more frustrating is that I know I would enjoy playing this game, but I can't. I've updated flash, and I have no problem playing any other Newgrounds game I've played.

Nice

Very fun game. It does get kind of frustrating later in the game if you die and lose all of your defense stuff (I got a phone call, and couldn't find a pause button... if there is one). Overall, the difficulty progression is good, the different weapons are fun, although some are a bit useless because they are too slow or just ineffectual. My biggest problem is with the 'Time Mode' because it randomly freezes up on me, causing me to have to refresh the page. The last time this happened I had like 6 TV's, chocolate, and fans all over the place, and knew that I would easily hit 15 minutes... then it froze on 8 something... very frustrating...

Fun, but...

It's fun, but it gets REALLY boring waiting for the score/money to tabulate after a mission. It doesn't seem like a long time to wait, but it builds up. If you could just make it so it automatically is done adding if you push space or something, it would make a huge difference in this game. Otherwise, it's pretty fun. I haven't gotten too far into it yet, so I can't say much, but it's always fun to destroy things in gory fashion.

Was fun, but...

For some reason, the level 9 medal isn't working for me. I've beaten all the levels, and beaten level 9 and 'Try walking in their shoes' multiple times, but it's not crediting. Otherwise, it was a good game. Had some strategy involved, the sounds am music fit. I do wish there were more difficult levels, but it was overall pretty good.

Pretty good.

It's a simple game (or collection of little games) that tests reflex and improvisation skills. Some mini games take longer to complete than others, and you have to know what games you can leave for a second to complete another. Very cool concept, enjoyed finally beating it.

It's alright.

It's not bad. I had the same problem with the lag as many seem to have had, but I didn't get it as much when I started pressing the mouse button in time to the shots. So, if you're having the lag problems, just press the button once for each shot you fire, and pace yourself. I wish I could have played the last few rounds even after buying the atomic bomb, even if all that did was level everything. I was hoping to buy the other upgrades, but didn't want to chance having to spend all my money on repairing my plane after the next round. Anyway, fun enough.

Better than the first!

I like this one better than the first. It lasts longer, it's more ridiculous, and the sounds are better. I like that there's more things in the water, and that you did cop out and keep the same things flying. You even changed it up with the horses... craziness. The only thing I didn't like was the wheel, I didn't think it was needed, and it got in the way when I was going for the killer whales. I wouldn't take a point for that though, cause you were trying something else. I like how the different things you pull out of the sky this time do different things (i.e. one of the planes a giant koala pops out like King Kong). Loved the game, great time waster.

It was ok...

I enjoy the concept, but the game can look MUCH better. I don't like how sluggish everything feels. I understand this is trying to simulate the bosses of spaceship shooters, and the smaller ship should have some means to dodge the fire... but some of the bosses have some bad-ass weapons. Perhaps upgrades as the games gets harder. Maybe the sluggishness is 'why' we're the smaller more maneuverable ships in these shooters...

Not Bad

The music issue has been brought up. I muted the music at one point, and when I 'died' again, the music started on its own but seemed to correct itself to just one loop. I like the gradual difficulty increase, though it could definitely be longer. If you are going to re-release this, maybe dress it up with a character you move with something of a story so there can be an ending to work toward. I don't know if that would be the way to go, just a thought. I enjoyed some of the puzzles, and it looked good enough (though as I said, maybe dress it up some). Nice job.

Had fun playing...

I had fun playing it, enough to work towards gold on all missions. I enjoy mixing and matching your capabilities to find the best combination of speed, armor, and power, and the equipment capabilities actually made sense. The only problem I had was I completed the game and boss run (obviously as I got all golds), but didn't receive the medals. I see in your comments that you had that problem and fixed it, but I still have that problem. Thanks for a fun game overall.
