Hi Everyone,

I entered my lander game in the Underground Jam at:
https://www.scirra.com/arcade/undergrou ... -2317?cp=2

This is a prototype with 10 levels and an very unexciting ending. I would really appreciate you trying it out and letting me know if it is playable, too hard, too easy, too boring etc.

All critical input welcome...really!

Many thanks,

Moostrodamus (Wayne)

10 levels you say! game's cool but a bit too difficult for me... im playing on a pc and keep exploding all the time. gotta say im not much of a player anyway. i love the expressiveness of the middle aged man in his tiny rocket...

I am working on some better instructions, like a kind of flight school for the first level...i really appreciate the input megalocrator.

Some tips to try....

1.try just flying straight up a bit by holding the "up" button for a second.
2.Just "TAP" the right and left keys to rotate the ship in the direction you want to go.

I think alot of people hold the controls down too longand it does get out of control pretty quick.

ANYWAY...yep too hard...gonna do a better tutorial on the first level and hopefully more people will be able to play.

Many thanks!

I think the controls are perfect, Did wish I knew about the green=no damage earlier. ;-)

How did you get the high scores to work? I can't get it to work on mine. I keep finding old instructions.

Named a HighScore table on the arcade to MAML then referenced it like in the picture below in the program on my game over page.

So i redid the first level to make it a bit simpler I hope. Also added some BG images to show some of the controls. Let me know if you can make it to level 2. Many thanks!
