This movie has excellent cinematic characteristics. Music is great, animation is clean. Special effects are great (especially the lagger). Most people that play online games can relate to this type of humor, it's simple but fun as hell!
This movie reminds us that sometimes to make things better you've got to take a chance and make some changes. Great graphics and style!
That was pretty graphic, but amazing. Your style is excellent, the sounds were perfect. I don't give out 10s very often, but I'm impressed by this masterpiece!
While there are a couple things that would help the player like mass numbers displayed, mini map, or zoom option, this game is pretty fun as it is. Its sort of like Orbient for the Wii.
Survival mode is beatable (but sadly, you cannot submit your score when you do since you have to die to do so). Over time, large stars spawn in the middle and asteroids can appear anywhere. It may take some time to slowly (safely) pick up asteroids. The gravity well that develops is like this on the map (numbers represent gravity power):
0 = safe in corner (you can leave the game safely), most edges minimal if any pull
1 = slight gravity, but if you're not paying attention you could fall in quickly
2 = you will probably die except in the beginning when there are few stars
3 = star spawn area, you're dead
+ = end of safe zone, best place to go in for more asteroids
What you want to do is make passes around the edge of the map or perhaps a screen out from the edge, being ready to fight any gravity you encounter and pick up a few asteroids. When you cannot find any more, head slowly from a corner diagonally to where the edge of the pull begins (the "+" areas on this graph). Float a bit to each side, allowing you to pick up some more asteroids, but don't move too deeply inside the gravity well. Repeat this for each side of the map; it will take time, but it is safe once you practice it. As you get to be a mid-sized to large sun, you will be pulled less and more things will come to you easily. Eventually you will reach a critical mass and pull stars out when not in a corner of the map, and you will be unable to die.
Just so you know, if you are teleporting when the dialog box pops up at the end of combat, you can get stuck. Upgrading the fireball is the best thing early on, and I found the archers to be too feeble even at their max upgrade. You're better off upgrading the mage with the storm once you can afford it.
I'm particularly enjoying having multiple characters. There are several options for improving the team as a whole and more diverse characters. The UI is simple and effective. Overall, it's a great game.
I've been dumping stat points into "aptitude" but I wanted to ask, what does "aptitude" actually do? Does it make you level faster? Could you add this description to the tutorial or to your comments please?
