New Game Idea - You Decide!

Bouncing Ball Games are currently working on their 3rd game. It's a 2D side scrolling shooter.

As the game is still in development we thought we'd get feed back along the way and let the readers decide what they like.

We're going to be needing a title but that is a way off yet.

First choice is what player sprite we should have. We have 2 at the moment and each have their own charm.

What do you guys think, which one is best?

The one on the left, but give it the barrel from the one on the right!

Second one. More taunting and scary than the first.

Next choice:



Should the enemy have a top mounted gun and fire in a straight line or do you think a rear mounted gun and fire like a mortar?

I think I prefer the rear mounted gun. What do you guys like?

I like 1st enemy avatar and the second player avatar.

This game is looking great! Looks like a stylistic version of "Heavy Weapon". I'm totally down.

I'll try and think of a name, too. I'll get back to you with it.
