ZaphosGreat art, solid implementation of a classic concept. Particle effects and transparencies rule.

mrfunWhat can I say? Bluescreen is a one man game making army that makes you reevaluate what is and isn't possible in 48 hours. His art and mad coding skills come together for a perfectly blended cup of action and flashy effects sure to amaze.

GnatinatorAhh. Bluesrcns entry.. As always, top notch. Gravity is just a wee bit heavy. And your game crashed on the third level. A little more playtesting should have gone into it. Other then that, very excellent entry, will probably win. (As always :)

dumpleAmazing. This is miles ahead of the other entries. The graphics are professional-quality, the explosions and particles are gorgeous. The translucent wobbly 'asteroids' look great, and the darkened underground is nice and spooky. The sound effects are wonderful. The music is very simple, but the mood is perfect. The gameplay is good - not as awesome as the graphics, but genuinely fun. Gravity is pretty heavy, which makes the game rather tough (I can't seem to pass area 3). I think having more lives (or the ability to continue from the start of an area) would be nice.

ondrewAmazing. How do you do it? :-) You should have some handicap, like to be allowed to work only the half of the time everybody else has. But I suppose you would beat us even though. :-)

LordCovenantAs usual, great entry, bluescreen... Theme is only 3, because the theme of your game is more contamination than infection... The music was nice, but it had some looping problems that got quite anoying at some parts... Graphics were awesome, and the game wasn't funnier to play because it's too damn hard, verging on frustration rather than challenge... Innovation is low (as you stated in your own description, it was thrust+asteroids)... Overall it's a very polished entry and a very good one!

JaciusA beautiful game, very polished visually. The particle effects add a lot to that. The music isn't great, but it isn't bad either. The only real problems I noticed were that it is impossible to destroy a barrel that is not being tractored, and that the barrels cannot be shot. It would have been nice to have a level select, so as to skip stages (such as the training mission) when playing again.

SkalleYou know that you will win :) Great graphics and programming, menus, sound, everything. Though, as i heard there was a game like this before i vote 1 for innovation. Doesn't matter, you'll win anyway.

JolleDefinetly my favorite so far! (not that you know what that means, not knowing how many and which games I've tested yet ;) I haven't managed the fifth level yet, but I'm going to try again later. Had no problems running it, and I like everything about it except one thing (which isn't that bad really), the connect to barrel button could have been something else then down arrow. A small indicator telling you when you are within range would have been cool too.

TwinnedArakPardon me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. Damn. Looks good, sounds good, plays good. Yes, it is a mix of several classic games... but it works so well together! I want to give each game I judge some constructive criticism, so here's a couple of things, but they're REALLY minor: - key layout; I don't like having thrust on "up" and tractor beam on "down"... it's hard to do both at once. - you need to give us extra lives, or heal us up between levels! But that's just me whining, I should learn how to fly better. - The physics of the ship + tractor beam'd barrel feel a little unfinished. I'd like to see the barrel swing more like a pendulum, and to have that momentum shake the ship back and forth. Yes it would make is harder to fly... but it would look cool... The best part of this game for me was accidentally dropping barrels down mine shafts and having to chase them down. Tons of fun. Great job!

NegatorNice little game, excellent music, and good sound. The use of downarrow (a movement key)to activate the lifting beam seemed a very poor choice though as my fire finger had nothing to do when lifting barrels and lifting/dropping became more difficult than it needed to be. I could have given a 1 for the attempt at political humour since I am at the opposite end of the spectrum, arf arf, but I feel merciful today. Nice game.

summakyGreat game as always, but maybe one thing that would improve gameplay is to difficult movements when a barrel is in the tractor beam. Anyways excellent graphics and sounds.

Ufo ZWhat can I say, the game has the trademark bluescrn feelgood factor. Very polished, very neat looking with impressive particle effects. The game crashes randomly sometimes but I suppose you know that already. Also, I get (barely noticable) vertical stripes in the black parts of the map, must be some sort of texture clamping issue on my card (gf2mx). A few comments about the gameplay: The barrels can slide on the floor without friction! I don't know if this is intentional bu it's very useful for getting them through narrow horizontal tunnels without hassle. Also, it's a bit weird how barrels will crash and explode when "picked up", but are indestructable when detached from the ship. (also very useful later in the game)
