Well this is one game where trying to skip enemies is NOT advisable I think I end up dying 20 times on the first screen, haha. Some of the enemies were VERY annoying, and tbh I usually end up trying to skip them and dying rather than actually trying to kill them. But I'm not one of those idiots giving negative score to a game just because "it was too hard" or anything.

Great music (midi metal ftw!), great graphics, good (but somewhat..erh annoying I guess) gameplay. Overall a good team effort. Another personal opinion about the graphics is that it was a bit too largly scaled for my liking.

It's fun to see so many swedes uploading games here

I WANTED to like it SO badly...but the gameplay is just too unpredictable, too arbitrary. Enemies would spawn right at the screen limits, so that I'd turn around where there was no one and suddenly there'd be makes no sense, and I have no sense of accomplishment, progression, or saftey. If killing enemies doesn't really do anything, then what's the point? I want to feel like I'm thinning the hoards a little. Other than that, the graphics, music, and style were pretty sweet--I really like the pole and streetlights in the foreground. But I can't bring myself to play it any more, it's too frustrating having enemies spawn behind me without warning...

When I first played ┼hktan i must say it was a hard game. I died a couple of times and cursed the game untill the oldschool reflexes from the nes/snes time finally returned. ┼hktan is a study in throwing yourself on the bed sobbing everytime you die but it is never because of poor design decisions or because the game is unfair. It is always because of mistakes I make as a player. Always a area where you are too much in a hurry to stop for a moment, read the enemies pattern, and then carry on instead of trying to rush the game. I think the game works a lot like old classics like mega man, contra and castlevania in the way that you are rewarded as a player when you actually concentrate and learn how enemies move in a way that are nowhere to be seen today in commercial games which can be breezed through blindfolded because it should appeal to the mainstream. There is absolutely no doubt about the grade for ┼hktan and i'm excited to play your next game Papa Mike. Keep up the good work!

Downloaded the game right now and it reminded me of Contra and Mega Man but in another way and I've always liked these kind of games in my life. Maybe because it's hard. The graphics looks great, it sounds great and the gameplay is flawless. This is a game you want to have in your desktop just to pick up and play and kill some time. Great work.

Rated. The only thing earning those stars is the graphics, sorry.

Totally awesome
Posted by Sneaker 9th February, 2008

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated =
And we kinda knew the game wouldn't be for everyone. No one so far have said it was easy, infact almost everyone think it is hard.

But the whole point of the projekt was not to make a innovative game, just a pure action experience to learn MMF2 for future use.

BTW, there is also a cheat button in the game. If you press the '┼' button you will skipp to the next level (only works on scandinavian keyboards tho)

First of the title music is really amazing and the overall sound is quite good. The game itself thou is kinda... normal and with a few things that could have been done better, but still very entertaining when you get in to it.

Anyhow I find myself staring att the title screen listening to the music and put quite some effort to completing the game so thumbs up!

did you register 7 different accounts to praise your own game or what
Posted by steve 9th February, 2008

Dustin, I think you are right there! lol.. all those accounts above that gave it 5/5 were registered today. Very curious.

Posted by Sneaker 9th February, 2008

Answer to Dustin Gunn:
No I did not create new accounts to do anything. Wouldn't that show in the ip or something? I did however link this site to a few friends to download the game. And obviously some of them voted 5 because they know me.

However, the majority of the voters are people I don't know and might be a result of me promoting the game on other sites, such as youtube.

Glad to see lots of people downloading and testing the game. As always I'm most happy for all kind of feedback that could help me improve my future projects .
Posted by Dustin Gunn 9th February, 2008

well alright

the graphics are nice but the respawning enemies really spoil the whole thing.
Posted by Martin Bergh 9th February, 2008

Jep it's a hard game but it's suppose to that way. Anyway I can't really rate this game because I was in the team that made this game. But it is fun that people like the game even with it's flaws.

Can that funky Scandinavian A button be emulated with some ascII code and a scripting program ?

Nice game. I see the megaman similarity. I couldn't figure out how to jump high enough at some points. Also its weird that the enemies get a partial invincible period after shooting them the first time so you cant just nail them with two bullets.

Looks like wee/ bajs and sekito are related hmmm

nice looking game weird controlls though
Posted by Sneaker 10th February, 2008

Answer to MBK:
I do not think you can do that... But I might update the download on monday with a new button. If so I'll make sure to post what button here.

You can double jump (jump one extra time in the air)

Look what I wrote in my last post
A few of the posters are just friends voting for fun. However I do not know which ones they are, but your guess sounds quite accurate

The team members of this game are from the same university apparantly so henceforth the similar positive comments. Whether or not they're all the same person is debatable.
