The engine sucks
I had some expectations for a game like this.
You do a less than satisfactory job in the game.
The collision detection is horrible, whether it's death by a hawk a couple pixels away or trying to a "vertical bypass jump" and hitting an invisible block. Or slipping through a 'solid' block from the side.
Aside from engine problems problems, there was the simple fact that YOU COULD NOT ACTUALLY CONTROL YOUR JUMPS! There was only one jump height! And it was highly annoying to be stuck with that. A good platformer gives you the ability to make jumps of different heights! Look at Super Mario, Megaman, Metroid! You could make tiny jumps AND still make a ridiculously big one.
Jumping aside, a handful of level designs were quite evil. Level 25 is where I ended up stuck. Though I do freely admit that I am not the best platformer, it had some incredibly irritating timing, along with a few others.
Decent job, but you should be able to make a less glitchy engine for it. Really the only big problem is the engine. Improve that and the game would be fine.
Ok, not so awesome....
I don't think that the game was the greatest. There could easily be some improvements to it.
The main problem is the the cars' hit box and the responsiveness of the space bar. Where I'm getting hit seems to be far out from where the car actually is. And the space bar (even when holding it down waiting for cars) seems not nearly responsive enough for a game like this.
It was a somewhat ok game, but not really anything to be amazed with.
I found the game incredibly easy. You should have your enemies come in greater numbers and maybe you could add different enemies as well. Ones that are stronger, faster, etc. As for graphics, I found the graphics to be dull. But that's mainly because of the lack of a background, I'm ok with the simple graphics of the ships.
Sound, either sound effects or music, would be a greater improvement.
Anyway, you got a good base for something better here.
First off, I have no clue what's going on. No explaination, or anything.
more levels and upgrades and a story would make it so much better.
"Hard" Mode is a lot easier than the first level.......... -.-;
A little too simple for my taste.
I would recommend adding a time limit to the game and a timer.
I also think you should change your song from "Vs. King Dedede" to something more "pokemonish." I mean this is PIKACHU's beach party not Kirby's.
Well Pikachu and Kirby have been long time friends, so the music is fitting any way you put it. As for a timer, I could put one in the next one.
Bland, but good try
I really think that you should come out with a new version. This one doesn't add anything interesting or unique to the game. If you added power-ups, stronger blocks and changes in the balls movement depending on where it hits the paddle, you could have a great game going. If you also changed the background image or added music it would add greatly to the game.
I've also noticed that sometimes the ball gets stuck in one of the walls causing you to lose a life and also some other glitches in the ball's movement.
