[quote="midnight":3ugcfo7n]Man it's neat looking but just too hard...[/quote:3ugcfo7n]
I think this is becoming the standard response to Lobo games
I suppose I should preface my response by stating that I generally don't like shmups. So I can't really say whether this is any harder than other shmups out there or what, because, well... I don't play them. I will say that this one seems kinda hard to me. But that's beside the point.
It really does look great... you've got some sweet effects going on. The jet trail on the ship is cool looking, and the clouds are pretty nice too. I like the warpy effect on the game over text also. And, as always, your pixel art is top-notch.
The controls seem much more responsive and fluid than your previous games, which is a good improvement. But from what little I know about shmups (which is very little, since as I mentioned before I don't play them), they aren't supposed to have inertia on the player ships. I've read more than once that's kind of a no-no in the shmup world. Maybe someone else with more knowledge than I can confirm/deny?
