Hey BLACKALiCE!


I wanna congratulate you on your excellent entry into the competition! This is one of the few games I returned to multiple times to try and get better at. You've definitely got a special idea going here.


I would like to give you a little crit, the target for where you are going to shoot the blocks, because it pretty much covers an entire block are perfectly, its hard to glance and see if there is a block there or not. And I end up taking a moment more to decide if I should shoot or not.


I know this might seem like a stupid fault on my own, but its something I'd recommend looking at, if only to improve the quick readability of the playing field and what blocks are needed where.


Are you planning on continuing development after the contest?

What he said, the targeting cursor should be looked at again. But I guarantee you this will be in the top 3.

Wow - thanks a lot guys, I'm really glad you are all enjoying it! I just want to say this is mrz's project at heart - so don't give me the credit for it ;)


But yeah! We'll be working on this after the RIOT compition is over - and I'll be sure to look in to the cursor as soon I get back from NYC!


And the top 3? We'll see about that - we have some really tough compition, including you, Traylorpark - I love your graphic style, it's just a shame I can't play the game, I'm a Pandora man ^^


EDIT: I took Shootet to Times Square ;D

I have probably stood in that exact same spot as you, Blackalice.
It's an amazing place to be - the free WiFi goes down a treat too :D

Damn! That's impressive - I'd love to see what scores people are getting - and if they can beat the devilish hard mode ;)

(though a Pandora would be better)

Let's see if we can't do something about that for you ... :ph34r:

I have an excellent idea for a powerup; an item that temporarily moves your ship to the sides or the top and lets you shoot blocks from there. The clusters still travel downwards, though, and will end the game as normal if they hit the bottom. If they hit the other sides, you simply can't shoot more there. You can do this to form other flavors of rectangles; should make for a very interesting challenge.
