A beta with a few levels for testing out Enemies. They are not quite done. Took a break to do a bit of UI work and ran into some organizational problems with the way I coded it.
Thinking maybe I should take 20% time to work on code side-projects so that when I get stuck on the main game I am still making progress with other cool code.

Awesome update, the menu looks great, (if not a little chuggy on My end, perfectly forgivable as I have a old graphics card.)
 and the enemies are variant despite simplicity. (always a plus in my book, but if you have moving platform enemies that drop You when stood on too long... {shudders})

(I also detect you changed the background music, and it is still in my head.:) (Smile))

All around I think its a great update. Thumbs Up

Thanks! Yeah, the main menu is a bit chuggy. I think the explosion effects in the main menu are not very efficient in the way they are coded.
I will either code a replacement effect or optimize the one in place.

Sounds like a possible GPU problem with your graphics card.
Play the game 10 more times and let me know how many times it crashed and when/where it crashed.

I'd really rather not, it was quite the crash... :S
And it would be odd if it was my graphics card, it can handle (so far) all modern games... Skyrim for example, runs flawlessly on highest settings...

But then again, I shouldn't rule out the possibility.... I remember, as soon as the game went on screen, my screen went black for a sec, and when it came back it said below the screen's adapter was reset.
Could it be excessive particles? how are you rendering them?

I've been looking around. I am not sure it is so much a problem with my game as it is flash in general.
Here is what I found:

Quote:
SOLUTION I Found, turn off hardware acceleration in Flash----->find a youtube video with an advertisement (these use flash player), right mouse button on the video---->select configure (instellingen in Dutch, hope I translated it correctly)----->pops up a small 2,5x1,5inch menu----> click monitor icon far on the left in this menu-----> there you will see a check for hardware acceleration-------->uncheck that and it should solve the bluescreen problem.

I would be curious to see if you computer, in it's current configuration is crashing on other flash games.

At what point did the crash happen when you visited our submission?

The initial short black screen happened as the game finished loading and was about to show it's main menu... the full crash happened during trying to play the first level...
So far, this hasn't happened on other flash games, but I hardly play flash games... ^^; so maybe it's a problem with flash...

But I do see a lot of flash movies and regulairly use youtube...

Hmm... Sounds like it crashed on the the PlayStateInitializer.
There is a lot going on it the initializer. I'll have to take some time
to think on this one.

it's on game group,

maybe additional introductional level on how every machine in games works, 1 machine on 1 level, like on lv 1 machine a, lv 2 machine a + b, and so on.
in the curent level all killing machine already there and everything fast. like on 5th level, need time to realize if middle laser just half width, or it's just only me. hehe
by adding that level, we get more fun level

to make it more fun,make this guy health drain faster when he hit by falling machine,

i think that's from me.

The game does throw you into a quite intense experience a bit fast.
I like your idea of showcasing just one enemy when it is first introduced.

Life does drain a bit slow. We will have to speed it up a bit to make the game a bit more challenging.

Thanks for the advice!

- I like the updates. The sound effects are really good, and the music is really good. The interface is still a
bit clunky and messy as if things were just being messed around with, and the new character design is cute, but doesn't really fit... like the original one = (...
And the arrow icon that comes up with the inactive game is a bit unattractive. The interface, like I said is clunky, not because the MAIN menu ( title screen) , but because the menu. It looks very plain still, I know it's still a beta though :x . Good overall, but needs more challenges, much more difficult :P  -

Yeah. UI I do not enjoy. But I've been trying to put a bit of time into it before each beta release.
The  "In Game UI" which you are refering to needs to be completely re-written.
It is one of the oldest pieces of code in there. And making it pretty will be too hard.

The functionality of the menu that replaces it will be almost identical. Just better looking.

The level select menu may not be in the final game. And if it is, will have some type of skin.

The arrow icon I think is the default system icon? It wouldn't be too hard to change that!

The new character design isn't quite finished. And it might fit once we have the story in there.

What else...
Ah... Level difficulty.
I had a hard time coming up with creative levels to showcase enemies. That is why the levels are not very challenging.
Especially not challenging for someone with experience with our game. :)

it's getting along good. I like the enemies and the character's life span. The pausing character animation is cute. 

Also the levels are simple yet inticing. With interesting "enemies" 


Well played man, well played.

Yep. I wanted to showcase the enemies in this. And then pass a link to this by my level designer so he can give me advice on what changes he wants to the enemy AI.
I followed his directions mainly. But there were some things he wanted that I could not easily do with the current code base.

Any suggestions by you are welcome as well!

Well, you are a bit helpless in this game.
You have no shield, 1 hit kills, and no ability to attack.
So I'd say you are doing just fine!
