Thanks for the feedback. I agree about the music, but I'm no musician, so I take what I can get! ~.^ I think that my casual game-making days have been at an end for a while, but I am definitely interested in making a sequel to this. I may make a comeback soon.

The blocky movement was intentional, but it really was what made the game a challenge to play. If I made a new version, I would have to make the movement of enemies smooth. The globe really couldn't be any better without a lot more work or a 3D engine. For an old Flash-powered game, I think it looks fairly convincing. Perhaps I should have made it move more slowly? In any case, it is an improvement over the plain white orb I had pre-1.0. I agree, it has a lot of potential. Back then, I was a terrible coder (compared to now). I will consider this as a game I re-release at some point. I really want to add a story to it and remake the concept inside a 3D engine. With a 3D scene, I can make Earth look a lot more realistic.

Great arcade game. It shows the true potential of Game Maker. I liked playing it, but I probably won't play it over again. XD

Hey, thanks for the offer regarding the game engines you've been developing. I'm no coder myself, but I would like to learn how to program in Flashdevelop with AS3 eventually... Don't know if my brain will allow that. Haha. I've got the tools needed (without actually using Flash), so now the challenge is just to find the time to learn, and see if I CAN learn...

There's nothing hard about the first screen. You drop down, wait by the wall for the spike wall to start retracting, follow it, rinse, and repeat. If you were playing on medium, then you have to shoot the save box as you advance along the bottom row because that spike wall will kill you repeatedly as you advance. Also, the entire purpose of the shooting is to hit save boxes, kill bosses and enemies, and, if you go down from the first screen, trigger the loose spike so you can land on it. There is nothing about the game meant to insult the player, just to give them a good challenge that can, at times, be frustrating. But it's not impossible, as someone even managed to beat the game on the &qu
