OMG fun game you have here, I ended up playing 6 times >.< keep up the good work on those game! Only one report: in the readme it says A is to jump, and S to shoot. However in the game its S to jump and A to shoot you may want to fix that ;)wink.gif

Oops...I suppose it won't matter by the next update as the controls will be changed.  Here was what i was thinking, use 'z' 'x' and 'c' instead of 'a' 's' and 'd', make it so if you hold shift your weapon will continue to aim in the same direction, and press space bar to launch a secondary weapon (like a rocket or grenade or something...slow but with lots of splash damage.)

I sped up the gun's bullets and added more effects so far but have a few to replace still as the effects engine in game maker is a cpu hog and would be hard to translate into other programing laungages.

Music is low priority, but probably, same with sound.  More than anything, it is hard finding music I think would go well with it that is in a nice loop and isn't to large of a file.

I plan to make a 'no-gore' version to, but as a big fan of blood...I have no plans of decreases in that area.  I do however have a mini-game almost done...my own version of fall down in it for the next release.

it is almost done, I just never made levels...that why i was making a comp version as it is easier to make and test levels for it.  'Ball' the mini-game will have v0.5 released next week.

well, a new release is planned for tommorow (hopefuly) with some sound, rockets, a mini game, and whatever else I can get finished.  Also, a minigame called ball will be included.  It is like falldown, but with multiple lives and stuff.
