    Henchmen, Attack! - qrunchmonkey - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    Are you a bad enough dude to escape the endless lair of the League of Malevolence? I'll save you the trouble: No, you aren't. It's endless. So, while you're on the way to the great escape, you might as well wreck the place.

    Aim your gun by pointing the mouse, Fire with the left mouse button, and hit space to jump.

    Made with Flixel, Pixelmator & my voice.

    nice take on the runner-genre. The title is great, as is "League of Malevolence"

    Also, do I spot traces of flixel and the canabalt-sourcecode? :-)

    Very neat and replayable.

    I found the sounds quite charming. Interesting take on a Canabalt type game. Perhaps it could either be a bit faster or have some sort of store based upgrade system between rounds.

    matthias_zarzecki:

    Yes, I used the Flixel engine (I even said that in the description) but there's no trace of the Canabalt source in there - I don't believe the the flash version open source, is it?

    (Though I will admit I took a peak at canabalt-ios to see how they did the gradual acceleration, and then did it in a similar way.)

    I guess it's just Flixel then (the similar font and placement of icons convinced me).

    And the code of Canabalt is actually now open source (which is great), but not the art assets of it.

    I like the take on the runner genre you've gone for with this game. Reminds me of Cannabalt, and I love that game :D

    I love the sound effects, and the game is really fun. The only thing I could possibly fault it for is being yet another cannabalt.

    That was fun :)
    i liked the long window allowed lots of vision. 'jump!!!'

    Quite fun and humorous. Controls maybe a bit too simple, but that didn't stop me from never breaking a minute.

    Gah. I kept doing a two finger click on my track pad and bringing up the Flash menu, and then the space bar wouldn't work. I face planted many times. Nice entry, apart from the menu thing.
