    I ran around for a fair while - it felt pretty good to move around, and the graphics were decent :)

    nice, the game runs smoothly and the movement system is nice.

    So this is a game where you run around and shoot things. Nice graphics. Not terribly original or thematic.

    The connection to Discovery is tenuous at best. I guess you.. discover the contents of the boxes? Solid game otherwise.

    I love the graphics and animations.
    Smooth camera movement and good feel to the movement.
    The loot often ended up inside walls though which was annoying.

    Really nice game!
    What's missing is some win condition. And what's rather annoying is that you can't immediately pick up the items from crates. Other then that very solid.

    Why?!?!?! Why am I a bad-ass mother running around robbing people? What's my motivation, cos it ain't the paltry amount of money that I make doing so!

    The graphics are really well done and the animations are sweet, so great job on those.

    That being said, "gameplay is second" is fairly apparent here. The movement and camera feel nice, but other than that lack of variety and motivation led to me be bored after exploring about a quarter of the map. One big issue is that you can stand just out of range of the thugs and still take them out, after this is discovered it is nearly impossible to die.

    Although seeing as how you also said that you were going to focus on polish this LD, you definitely succeeded in your goal as this is one of my favorite entries as far as graphics is considered.

    Game is not bad you need more time to finish it :D

    I like how the bad guys just stand there shooting at thin air. On one hand it could be harder if you could shoot up and down, but that could also make it easier in some ways...
