Okay, so Newton Greenshades breaks into the facilitymajiggy with only his pistol and funny-shaped knife, and on the way he angers mister sunshine by pushing him off a cliff. mister Sunshine is then injected with a syringe of monster fluid by a mysterious vanishing scientist (henceforth called doctor Combustiscalp) and then Sunshine's life purpose is to get revenge on the rude newton Greenshades. Combustiscalp then injects a hapless test subject with more monster fluid, changing the victim into crustacean demon. Greenshades, oblivious, once again fights off the now-relentless mister Sunshine and then finds himself running for his life from both the crustacean demon and a guy with a riot shield who was too unimportant to give a proper name to. Then, after another confrontation with sunshine and the crustacean, Greenshades ducks into a control room where sunshine (now monstrous) kills the annoying riot shield-wielding stalker. Greenshades fights him off again, and tells the still-alive control room guy to open a container which just so happens to contain Sir Edgar GunsForHands, who escapes and manages to wound doctor Combustiscalp. Meanwhile, Greenshades decides to recruit the previously-unimportant control room guy, transforming him into Saint Michael Tangerine. Tangerine uses his newfound abilities to possess a guard with a grenade launcher and blast open the door for him. Sir Edgar GunsForHands, on the other hand, gets into a confrontation with Sunshine, for some reason, and manages to slice him up with a sword despite the fact that he has guns for hands. GunsForHands is cornered but the gun-wielding, body-spewing sunshine, but at the last moment, Tangerine proves his allegiance once and for all by putting a grenade into sunshine's head and saving Edgar. Then, the now-united trio are ambushed by crustacean demon, who drags Greenshades and an unsuspecting guard into the space below. (the guard gets a pretty gnarly crab-claw wound while he's at it, too.) Sir Edgar GunsForHands and the loyal Tangerine are then ambushed AGAIN by doctor Combustiscalp, not two seconds after crustacean demon vanished into the floor. Greenshades, whose green shades were broken by the fall, runs for his life from crustacean demon and manages to find a nifty set of orange ultra goggles. Using these, he flings the crab-clawed guard into the wall and runs once again fron crustacean demon. GunsForHands and Tangerine fight off Combustiscalp in the room above, and the doctor decides to flee the only way any sane person would; through the floor (during the scuffle, Tangerine uses his power to possess Edgar and picks up some monster fluid for some reason). Down below, Greenshades fails to fight off Combustiscalp and is himself injected with monster fluid. Then shot in the back of the head by the crab-clawed guard, who survived his trip into the wall. The guard then stumbles into Tangerine and the rather dazed Edgar, who do not seem to be hostile towards him for some reason. The guard runs, and Edgar shoots tangerine (possibly accidentally!) and is then set upon by the infuriated crustacean demon, but is saved at the last moment by the now-monstrous Greenshades, who uses his funny knife to put down the crustacean demon once and for all! Greenshades then gives the confused Edgar a remote, and takes the monster fluid from the possibly-deceased tangerine. Greenshades then chases after that cowardly guard who had the gall to shoot him in the back of the head. Edgar, meanwhile, gets into an elevator and encounters Combustiscalp, then shoots him in the head and presses the button on the remote. Then Greenshades explodes, while holding the cowardly guard.
Delicious animation. Very lively. i love it.
I got a few chuckles out of this review. Loved the names.
The weird knife thing is actually an Irish club called a sheleighly.
Edgar shot Tangerine for taking him over.
And Edgar wanted to restore Greenshades by injecting him with the green syringe (the restorative syringe).
I think I'm keeping these names if I make a sequel.
I think i found all the extras.
That would be the computer, the skull that does nothing in the closet, max's computer, and the pyramid that makes the strange noises in the dream sequence?
Oh... and that "help" thing. how long did it take you to code THAT?
i think i've had an experience like that once. it's like being senile and hyperactive at the same time. yeeeeee.
EXCELLENT WORK as usual! specially that dream sequence. trippy!
hmm, how'd he get both george washington AND abe lincoln in his house? weird.
...i miss spike now.
Yeah, I believe that'd be it. You can do a lot with the computers, maybe even some things you weren't aware of. Maybe you got all that, though. And the pyramid actually does something... more. Or rather, unlocks something? Hmm, maybe you should go back and check a certain menu after clicking it to see for yourself... :3
And don't miss Spike! It's true he's gone, but not in the series! He's actually in one of the backgrounds you know. And the next episode is all about him, so you have that to look forward to. Thansk for watching this one!
and a pirate i am!
honestly though, i have no idea what point you're trying to make with this, if any.
aside from the obvious animation flaws, it was fairly good and kept me watching.
anyway. on to the juicy discussions.
Wouldn't it be nice if everything was free? and the only obligations you have to pay are if you truly want to support the creators?
yeah, that would be nice. too many people would take advantage of that, though. such a shame.
its not too bad. i don't know how many people are actually profiting off illegal software, but most professional businesses and schools have 10s to 100s of copies of adobe's software which makes them a looooot of money. and their software is sold worldwide too...
I think it's safe to say that this is just about as much fun as i've ever had with a platformer. thinking like a snail took some getting used to, but i ended up loving the game so hard that i took the time to find all 100% items. i still can't find your first snelk room, damitall, but i'll get there! somehow!
The gravity snail upgrade was absolutely brilliant. after getting used to it, moving around was just such a breeze. it's part of what made the exploration so fun.
Thank you so much for making a competent endboss. i don't think i could've stomached an anticlimactic weakling. i will say this, though- knowing to use the invinci-shell ability sucked all of the challenge out of its deadliest attacks. Maybe you should make that ability less powerful?
if there's just one criticism i would make, it's that the art is somewhat lacking. the flat colors of all the characters and the environments is kind of out of place in such a great game.
Anyway, wonderful work. i'd love to see more from you in the future!
Very sparkly. seems like everything gives off particles! maybe that's why it seemed to run a bit slow?
The gameplay was pretty solid, but fighting wave after wave of enemies can get a little repetitive- especially when there's no real reward for taking them out, and there's no particular hurry to do so. one of the appeals of most shooters is the franticness of them, where you rush to defeat as many of the enemies as possible either for an achievement or for upgrades. i suppose there's an appeal to getting your multiplier high, but it was just too easy. on every level i'd surpass the goal by so much it was laughable. Also, i find it a bit baffling that the only weapon that makes any noise is the spreadshot...
Anyway, I didn't play all the way through the game, but i blame my own impatience, not you. It's an excellent game, and you did very well.
Thank you, you brought up some good points.
Thanks for the 9 :D
Thank you so muchly for this delicious piece of information! time to go add medals to things.
It's calm and collected. I suspect it'll make excellent BGM.
I'm pondering if i should put it in something... It's really tempting, and i need music for something... I'm just not sure if it fits.
Well, if the shoe fits! Otherwise... just keep it in mind for other projects! ;)
makes good background music, yes? only problem i have is that i can hear just the faintest bit of some really high-pitched noise. it's annoying. is that part of the song?
*dies**gets up**dies again*
that was AWESOME!
