Weak

This game looks weak. I appriciate the effort though. Not impressive.

What do you think I should add to make it better? Just saying it sucks doesn't help anyone

Hi billyfish! I think you should know who I am (creator of Cheese Collect!)

I recognised you from your signature ^^

Welcome to TA

I think your game is great, keep working on it, though don't forget the other one!

One idea: Upgrades for the player..Rate of firing, etc...

I like it! great job! I think the gameplay is great! works smoothly. I'm surprised the memory is only 0.1MB considering the ragdoll physics and the blood splattering effects. Out of curiosity did you do this straight in Xcode or did you use a development package.

The art style reminds me of falling balls.

I think the main thing missing for me is sound effects.

I use: http://www.soundsnap.com for sound effects. There are some other websites too I think.

I think it would be funny if they parachutists said some crazy things when you kill them... "Why me?" "I hate this job!" stuff like that...

The game has come up very well, the Stick anime is EPIC & so the blood splatter fx
I love the part where the Souls go up once the game is over! Its S Kool!
Can be the next big thing , seriously

This one has Great Gfx & concept, Can go a looooooooong way, Just needs some Addos like the one above, couple of weapons,
A Pistol - Kills in 2 (1 + headshot) or 3 shots (bodyshots)
A Shotgun - Kills in 2 shots, has a wider range
A Machine gun - Quick fire rate, Kills in 1 shot
A Bazooka - The one that you have is Purfect!
A hand grenade - Does splash damage

Add a point system, make us buy weapons & ammo.
Make us sell weapons that we are not Good @.
Allow us to change the order of arranging the weapons
You could add Headshot Bonus too!

EDIT:
I re-watchd the video, the trail fx right aftr the rocket are great, you surely pay attention to the details, don't U?

How about adding Torpedoes as anothr set of weapons ?
There are so many things you can do, you have come this far! C'mon!
You could add a couple of crosshair designs where we could pick one.... as in various games

PS : You'll need to change the name of the game thou

EDIT 1 : trying to embed the Video

EDIT 2 : Sheesh, just noticed that the youtube has it as rocket launchr, not the game itself, sorry, no itunes @ office

EDIT 3 : Removd Vid as its added to the OP (Original post, I guess )

Mis-quotes!!!!!!!

i like the screen shot that I'm seeing...the graphics definitely look fun, and the ideas already proposed are really good as well with the upgrades and powerups

...if you have any video showing the game in motion, I would really like to see that, too
