...looks, uhhh, riveting...thinks I's'll pass, though... :wacko:

 

 

...WHO LUVS YA, BABY!!...

A long, long time ago, but I can still remember,
How the Trolling used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance, I could egg on a few Trolls to "dance",
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.
But then Krackhead left and so did Klown;
Volo and Turnip were banned, Mystake got run out o' town.
Bad news on the Front Page,
BIOweenia said goodbye in a heated rage.
I can't remember if I cried
When I heard that TORN was recently fried,
But sadness touched me deep inside,
The day...Black Isle died.


For tarna, Visc, an' the rest o' the ol' Islanders that fell along the way

Since their forum has a sticky on how to remove the time limit, I would guess...

 

A) That it is legal.

B) That it is not legal.

C) Put it in.

Any videos? Depending on the pace and control of the game, it could be great. Screens look pretty cool, at least.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

The last overhead shooter I played was Demolition Man (which also had side scrolling levels). It was awesome, but I don't know that I can stomach that gameplay anymore.

That's why I asked about the controls. Done right I could have a lot of fun with this.

Thanks, Josh :)Is the time trial removal legal?

 

The screens reminded me of Alien Breed Tower Assault.

 

The Team 17 guys REALLY wanna make another Alien Breed game, infact they made one for the PS2, using the BG : DA engine I believe, yet publishers wouldn't touch it...

That's pretty much exactly the same way I felt about Shadowgrounds. I really enjoyed the demo, and I considered buying it. Then I realized that I had enjoyed the demo for what it was, and didn't really feel a huge desire to play much further.

 

I'll have to give this AS2 demo a whirl then.

Couldn't avoid the "watermark".

Hah, the Alien Shooter: Vengeance is wicked.

Thanks for the tip, I was looking for something rather mindless like this.

 

ps. Man, I don't visit for a month or so and the forum UI has totally metamorphed... I smell gnomes at work.
