A simple game which took longer than expected to load up considering it said 175 KB. It got real intense real fast which is perfect and made it a fast paced game rather quickly. Not big on the sprites, but I suppose what you choose is what you choose.
All in all, good use of my few minutes
I was actually really impressed by the fact that this game is so simple in nature, and yet to much fun. I really quite enjoyed the pacing of the game as it gets more difficult as you proceed. The three enemies I managed to survive long enough to encounter were great types to have and kept me busy. At first, I simply could sit in the corner and shoot, giving me the impression that it was too easy. Then the purple guys came along and killed that strategy. Then the slow moving greens started coming
All round great fun. The graphics aren't bad either.
Bullet time was a great inclusion for those tough situations, but one thing I didn't quite like was the lack of different killstreak messages. It would have been better if there was more variety in that aspect and would add a little more humour.
Great sound quality, the explosions never seemed to get old for me. The only problem is the frequency of them causing overlap issues. To be expected, and didn't take away anything from the overall quality.
All in all, great job for amusing me the past twenty five minutes
However rather repetitive. After you get the hang of it, things just simply flow along and they lose their potency. Plenty of levels is great, though what they need is variety. Sure they have more seals and open ice areas, but these simply grow old. The problem really was the choice of gameplay and how it restricted that variety from truly coming out.
At most, change up the ice background here and there. Make something funny come out of it even if it is cheesy such as 'the seals be watching ye'.
It is a very simplistic game which has its perks on one end, but cons on the other. One con being the repetitive gameplay. It never changes up and you simply find yourself going left right up down shooting with an extremely annoying laser sound. Though the animation quality is very good, the sluggish feel made me simply want to remain in a certain corner rather than trying to shoot an enemy on the other side of the screen. A perk to its simplicity is that you appreciate the animations a little more than usual.
Good thing this has a highscore choice as it doesn't really have much in the way of replay value otherwise
