another nice little game, chwilly.
1 thing i should have mentioned on your last windowed shooter (which applies here, too) is my desire for the window to be centered on the desktop upon execution (am i the only one that still keeps his taskbar on top of the screen?).
set window position
())/2, (desktop height
that would save me a little grief
otherwise, level one is very fun but i don't know if it's possible to beat level 2? if it is, it might be more work than fun and maybe that's something to consider on your next title.
and, finally, are you sure the "bugs to kill:" count is accurate? the first time through i had to kill atleast a dozen more bugs to complete the level (that's when i noticed the BTK: 1 message). it's possible all
the remaining bugs (save 1) were defenders left by the Queen (this was before i read that you had to match
bugs to remove them
), but at that point how was i to tell which bug was the "last bug standing"? (i know the defenders point/face the cannon but with the size of the graphics used, it's not easy to see in the heat of battle!)
meanwhile, it's still very fun and i'll play it again. i appreciate the premise and game play as it's a mix of a couple/few classic styles (artillery (minus the "physics") meets galaga meets mahjong/match 2?)
and, the added "bouncing shots" was a nice feature (allowing for some billiard-esque play/shot options), tho i wish i had a little more than 3 active shots available.
nice game. thanks for sharing!
oh, PS: some graphic glitches are apparent. for some reason i get a few stray lines and sometimes there are many flashing lines that form a line across the entire screen (see the inset graphic)):
