I don't understand the game. It totally doesn't respond. I see a bunch of 'P's and a droplet or pear falling down. Am I doing something wrong?

Bought a real Joystick for Rise of Flight recently. Apparantly O2EM detects it hahaha  Cheesy Roll Eyes

I was almost crushing my keyboard with any possible key-combi but nothing happened.  Embarrassed Lips Sealed

Now with The Voice sounds. Tell me what you think of the game. Please! Oh, and also tell me if it (and Traffic) works without the Voice module.

Ok, I tried it. At first I felt the chance to die is near to 0.
My thoughts. I not sure if I right or wrong, but I fell a new game needs to brings somthing new: a) gameplay, b) graphics or c) sounds, or better everthing at the same time. With Fatso, you had a chance to do a rich game with a very nice food library, but I think your rush is comprehensive probably you was ansious to do your first release. Gosub is a really nice and challenger game (better if it had a score). Traffic is surprisingly fun. But I donŽt see P Shooter as "new" game, I like shooters and because Space Invaders popularity it was a very present style on the 80Žs, but to make PShoter a "new" game youŽll need to find a point to make  it a new experience! ItŽs just my point of view, I love Pick Axe Pete, while others hate. You sugested me continue with Joust, probably IŽll pluu my plug, soon. So, it could be a nice option for you.

Editing: IŽll test Traffic for you.

Got around to trying this. As some have stated, not a game yet, but it shows potential in my book . I like shooters. Of course this would appear to be the start, as there is just basic shooting going on. As Rafael kind of mentioned, it needs 'something' more to make it fun. At this point, it is an interesting concept with potential.

I rearranged the code and instead of Ps, you shoot asteroids, so it's an Astrosmash clone now. Future plans include once a big asteroid is shot, it might split into two different ones, the hurricanes (or whatever those white swirly things are in the original version), etc. Hopefully I can fit all that into just 2k.

Okay, cool, new direction. Note one glitch at this time - going to the right is 'sticky', as in it doesn't move smoothly for some reason?
