FRIGGIN' AWESOME!!! I very rarely give out a 10 for anything, this was truly a pleasure to play. For all of you that think it is "standard", I think you're jealous. This is by far the best shooter if not best game on Newgrounds, it needs a better award than weekly feature. Yes it has been done before, but this was really fun and rarely do you see a game of this caliber on Newgrounds. 13 years ago you could've markleted this on Sega CD (even though it flopped), it reminds me of I game I used to love (cant remember the name, I was like 9).
Now this is a game I would actually pay for if you had like 30 or 40 levels, great story line and overall great game. 10+ if it was possible. Keep up the great work and make a sequel!!! DO IT, I WILL PLAY!!! Some reasons why I liked it so much:
Started out easy enough to keep my attention span and kept me interested. Shooters are too easy to make them difficult, I lose interest in many of them because of that.
Graphics were fantastic!! For a 2D hybrid it was the shiznat.
The bosses were really fun and possible to beat, the underwater one was pretty difficult, but I still kicked his ass on the last try.
The music was a great choice, something heavy for the heavy action. Loved it.
Overall great story and equally great game.
The power ups were awesome, you really changed it up as the game progressed.
The level selection and diversity/graphics were friggin' sweet man.
The only complaint is the game length, it would be sweet to have more levels. But that is the only thing I can complain about. You need to make a sequel, you have to. Bottom line.
Sweet game, I honor this as my favorite. And again I rarely give anything a 10, but I have to give you a 10 because this game rocked!!!!!!
Great job and good luck in the future buddy!!!
