SPINGUN // Public Beta Sign-Up

Hi there Touchers, Andrew here!

You may remember me from my previous game, David. Well, I've got something new for you...

FermenterGames.com/SPINGUN







TWO BUTTONS. ONE SPACE SHIP. ZERO CHANCE TO SURVIVE.

Fly and steer with either button, or press both buttons at once to fire your ship’s powerful blaster gun. Grab powerups to launch missiles, plasma balls, and flames at your foes. Blast em to bits quick to repair your ship. How long can you fight off Goliath?

As of now, SPINGUN is in public beta, and I need your help. Sign up for a test build, try it out, and let me know what you think. Specifically, I'm looking for critiques to the early-game learning and user experience. Did you figure out how everything works fairly quickly? Does anything need more explanation? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Sign up here on the SPINGUN page:

Cheers!

Ye Gods! this game is an arcade gem, if deathly difficult. Some of those Zones make the harder battles in David. feel like child's play, but if you're willing to let yourself go at it like a wild-eyed berserker every time you pick up a power-up, and if you make a point to try to wipe out freshly-spawned enemies the moment they appear so you can increase your health, you may just have a chance. Wonderful game that I'm sure the grizzled arcade vets here will adore.

Wow, high praise! Thanks Sinagog. I'm glad you're figuring out the best strats. Good to see some David. fans in here too. You all are always so poetic with your feedback, I love it!

Beta Update coming soon. We're closer and closer to launch after all this helpful feedback I'm receiving. (I'm going to have to do this public beta thing more often.)

Cheers!

This looks so, so, so, SO good. Frantic, explosions, retro(y). Wow. My only wish/dream/desire is you'd use me to compose some music for one of your games sometime...

Hey FRACTURES, thanks for the praise! I'll definitely check your tunes out. Currently, I enjoy making the music for my games myself, but maybe for a project in the future I'll need somebody else to handle it. Cheers.
