Ryan Silberman is one of the most neutral NG or hell even game creators I have seen, he has talent but the execution isn't always the best and this game really shows that.

Lore doesn't matter much here since this is short but I like Missileman and this story is cool.

Presentation-wise the game looks ok. I like the character sprites as simple as they are the other foreground sprites look fine as well the background and the parts with the ship look lazy though and don't fit aesthetically (being wonky for the former and have inconsistent pixel sizing for the latter). The music and SFX are generic but work for what we have here.

Gameplay is ok in this game as MissileMan controls really well and his mechanics work nicely. The problem is the other gimmicks. They are underdeveloped and really need more fleshing out. There is very little effort in teaching the player the mechanics so it's confusing at first especially the snow one. The Bubbles work well and are the best mechanics here but the hitboxes are a bit too precise as they tend to not work when bouncing off the side. The snow is a mechanic I missed at first and I thought you just took damage to get past, not helped by how much they blend in sometimes. The boomerang robots work well but there needs to be a better indication you can't damage them something like a different SFX or the bullets reflecting. The game is mostly glitchless outside of the first ship section having a platform you can stand on that you shouldn't. The biggest problem I have though is the length and how you have to start all over when you die. Making each section a short level or checkpoints would work better and make the game way less brutal.

Overall this game is a cute little adventure that has passion put in but lacks in areas like the rest of Ryan's freeware. It's worth a shot if you are tolerant of some middling choices but I wouldn't blame you if you rate it 0-2.5 stars. But hey it's at least better than Ryan's overpriced underdeveloped paid games lol (Those are only worth it if you like Ryan as a person and like his takes).

If the game had better presentation (Music and stuff like that) and there is a map to make things easier to find along with adding more mechanics. I can see this being great but for now it's mid.

(To elaborate on the radar thing it is hard to determine where the enemy is in terms of the y-axis and finding enemies when there's only a few is tedious)

Thanks! There is a radar on the bottom of the screen, what are you trying to find?

Grandma Pong but Mad Max

Dang, this captures that early Newgrounds vibes perfectly (Just with more modern stuff added in as well). A improvement over Grandma Pong

This is the most raw and correct interpretation of boy's High School bathrooms ever seen.

Diagonal movement is too stiff and delayed making Penguin 5 way too difficult compared to the other penguins (though still possible) to get but other than that this game is great!

A masterpiece in flash gaming history

(Also when are we getting Mario Bloc game?)

seanyproductions responds:

lol. Yeah I don't think I want to upload Maro Bloc Game to NG since it was purposefully designed to be bad, wouldn't be up to the quality standard i think.

My favorite Newgrounds Tower Defense game

Decent but very clunky in terms of controls
