How Far Did you Get? Sticky

I haven't been able to get past Zone 3

Edit: I got to Zone 6!

I got up to zone 1, but I'm getting the hang of it. Going to give it another go!

Developer

Cool! That's the best of anyone but me so far. Do you think it's too hard or is the challenge right?

Unless I'm mistaken, the enemies tend to have a pattern or at least specific behavior, so I was taking it kind of slow to analyze them. I think it's hard but not too hard. But it does seem to go from 0 to 60 in terms of the amount happening.

The only things that have felt "unfair" are due to GB Studio hitboxes IMO. Those little green things that shoot down from the sky seem to hit me from further than you'd think, but that's just because of the 16x16 collisions. Can't wait until we can address that!

I’m really glad you pointed that out. I think I should probably change the sprite

I game-overed in Zone 4 I think?

Oops, I was reading the display wrong – I think I haven’t actually gotten out of Zone 0!

I’ve given it a few tries and will play again later ^__^

Developer

cool :)

Made it most of the way through Zone 1, but can't seem to get farther yet. Really great simple game. Feels very classic arcade, difficulty and all.

Developer

Glad to hear it! I was thinking about that time you said you wanted to make an arcade game when I was making this :) 

High score 44! I'm not much of an arcade-game person though.

that’s good though! Once you get to 50 you get to the next zone

I've had a few attempts but only managed a high score of 46 so far! I like that it has that 'just one more go..' factor to it as I always think I can do better next time. I find the game pretty challenging but that's good - I like the tension of trying to make it to the top of the screen before anything can get you. It's a fun game!

I’m glad you’re having fun! I’ve been tweaking it to try to make it a little more fair but I actually think I made it too easy so I need to make it harder again
