Sploder

Sploder is a flash game with a straightforward objective. Either destroy all the enemies on the playing field, or capture all of the crystals. But playing this game is only half the fun.



I tried to make a simple level that demonstrates the various options, including obstacles, reloads, various enemies, wingmen, turrets and repel/attraction points. If you don't like the level you see embedded here, go make your own. Set up your main fighter, give him some wingmen, then place all the bad guys you want to help destroy him.

Sploder is in Beta, with hopefully more to come. There are already some good suggestions, such as ammo counts, teleporters and doorways, so hopefully there will be more to come. Also, I found the following description of the various obstacles you will find:

  • Wingman: Pretty tough, good all round defense and offense.
  • Obstacles: Indestructable, they are obstacles. Useful for cover and general display.
  • Items: Pickups. Careful you don't blow them up. Wingmen can use pickups.
  • Cruiser: Fires missiles, tough enemy. Beat with any weapon.
  • Guard: A guard. Normal craft.
  • Speeder: Speedy nasties that fire bullets. Weak.
  • Crystals: Adding these makes your game collect the crystals. Indestructible. Hopefully, I mean- I have not been able to blow one up yet.
  • Missile turret: The turrets sometimes bug and don't shoot. However, when they do, this inflicts high damage at a high ROF. Take care of with ray gun from behind, or cannon.
  • Turret: Fires bullets. Try blowing up with missiles.
  • Cannon turret: If you just get up close at moderate speed, it can't hurt you. Fires at one range only. Kill with laser.
  • Magnets attract, repellers repel. Take care of fast.

Issues I had: The more complicated games slow down drastically. Also, some of the turrets are pretty buggy as well as the other fighters. It's almost like they would rather run into the wall rather than come after you.

The game creator (I assume it was him) left a comment asking me to review the game, and I'm glad I did.

  2. You're welcome. It's a fun game to play, but it definitely needs more. I saw a suggestion for multiplayer, but I imagine that's a lot harder to implement.

    I am a member of sploder and of sploderx. I go on the two sites every day but there is no suggestion fields. I wish they had one, because I have a lot of good ideas.
