I’ve been working on a little freeware game for a while now and I think it’s ready for a pre-beta release to get feedback on the gameplay and any technical problems before adding more levels and enemies. I’d be grateful if you could download the game, grab anyone who happens to be around you and have a go at completing it.

It looks like a Super Bomber Man (or whatever) clone.

And pretty much every other game is a quake/metal slug/zelda/r-type/tetris clone. It's an indie game what do you expect, the next sims? I'm trying to make my first complete finished game which I believe is worth more than a million unfinished fancy technical demos that are only good for screenshots.

Bomberman kicks some serious ass, so creating a game similar to it is just fine with me. =)

The Major Problem
Enemies don't die in one hit? What's up with that? It takes forever to kill those damn orbs and the guys shooting missiles in the second level? Forget about it. They just sit in a long hallway and everytime I try to plant a bomb they blow it up in my face, they laugh it off and I can't do much of anything. I really think this health system needs to be rethinked.

The Minor Problem
Does your game force a refresh rate? The main menu really hurts my eyes.

Those problems aside, it's quality.
