That reminds me... would it be a good idea to add flying zombies and allow shooting vertically/diagonally?

Hm, shooting diagonally wouldn't be hard at all actually (I just realized that the up/down buttons do nothing atm) since I already have y-velocity of the bullets. However, zombies are restricted pretty solidly to right/left movement....

I'm working on a melee attack too..I'll think about it. It would definitely help add some variety to the game.
or adding a boss stage. :D
I was thinking about this: it is possible I think. Hm...

Ah ok. I just thought that maybe there could be two enemy kinds, such as some sort of mutated zombie with wings or even bird-based zombies like in Resident Evil Extinction movie.

What? No Bounce? I am aghast! :P
I have some opinions:
Currently, you have to save. I dislike this, and I will say why:
As of now, when you die, you lose your save...unless you exit the game and continue when you come back. I'd rather you not have to exit, and that, when you die, you go back to the shop...where you have to buy your health back. I liked the continuous saving of the original. Also, in the first version, you didn't advance a wave via "resurrecting" yourself, which is what happens now.
To sum up, instead of having to start over when you die, I'd prefer that you simply didn't advance, keeping the resources you gained to try and outfit yourself better.
Also, there are some glitchy enemysprites once you reach wave 18. I'll do my best to get a screen shot of them for you.

I wonder how you reached wave 18 in the first place, though. I never got past wave 5 or 6. X.x (I never figured out exactly when to buy what and what to buy to survive without running out of money)

Yeah, I know about those glitches, I can't figure out what's causing them though -_-. The sprite data is formatted the same as all the others...

I haven't been able to work on this recently, been on a lot of trips recently (and heading off on another one tomorrow x.x)

It looks to me like the sprite data are missing. That'd be my guess.

Not exactly: I guess it's easier for me since I know what it's supposed to look like, but the sprite data is there. It's just scrambled :(

Maybe check your sprites? Perhaps the data are screwed up in the source?

So I was planning on picking this back up after the contest ended, and wrapping it up for a final release...

Unfortunately the backup on my computer was corrupted and I'm not familiar enough with the code/didn't make enough other backups to attempt to piece it back together.

So basically that means that the project just stands where it last was; playable, but no pickupables, a couple glitched sprites and some slightly confusing menus :P

Man, that sucks, another project lost because of backup issues :/ (Reminded me to do some backing up too.) Glad you were close to finishing at least. And it is a fun game :)

Yay featured :D (Do ticalc staff ignore flash apps? I think Embers deserves a feature more than this does :P)

On a side note I got sad because I noticed the ticalc screen shows the version with pickupables, which don't exist in the download :'(

Congrats on the feature. Also, I contacted ticalc.org the other day about that too.

Hey, I know it is many months later, but I wanted to ask about a health glitch. Some how when playing my health glitched and it read "426%". I know that this is a much older version from TIcalc.org, yet I just wanted to confirm that you are, or were, aware of the glitch at that time. I also want to know if you are going to make any plans to further update this into completion after your back up fiasco. Thank you, Chris
