    Hello!

    Looks fairly decent. The screen-shake effect does look cool, and the muzzle flashes as well. The guns are epic too!

    As for suggestions, I wouldn't know how hard it is to implement things into the engine. But I'd suggest:

    -Different text fonts, something more military themed.
    -Maybe customizable characters/allies
    -Futuristic/alien guns (maybe as a reward for beating all the missions or something)
    -Improving the background. To be honest, it looks a little bland.
    -Grenades?

    Anyway, keep up the good work! I'll definitely keep an eye on this game!

    Thank you for the reply! As for your first suggestion, text hasn't been worked on very much haha, but thanks :) Also what do you mean the background is bland? As in colors? Oh and there are already grenades I just didn't show them in the video :)

    Thank you again for your support!

    I agreed with BackupHero, especially about the background. I think he means that you guys should not use raw photo textures and need more artistic touch to the whole screen including color and shaping.

    Anyway, your game looks fun! I'll keep an eye on you! Go ahead, bro!

    Yeah, that's basically what I mean. The background textures, at least in this level, are a bit out of place and less artistic. Background textures would work, like a real-photo view of a forest or city, but the hills and ground could probably be improved.

    This is just my suggestion, if you deem it fit to keep it the way it is, I'm cool with it, I just think it might look better different.

    But no problem, we here on Toucharcade are here to support your efforts!

    Thanks :) There will be even more guns coming soon :)

    Awesome, thanks! The game is supposed to have a realistic look so how would I use realistic textures but still make it look good?

    Hmm so maybe I could just make more variation and color or something? Or what?

    I was rewatching the video, it's just that the textures look a little too much repeated. The cutaway view of the ground is okay, but you can clearly see the pattern of textures on larger things such as the hills. Variation in color will probably help. Maybe mixing up textures or tiles.

    Enemies now duck behind cover, and screen shake/smoke/bullet size depend on what gun you chose. Also, the enemies can dismember if they are blown up/ran over.

    This game could have a ton of potential. Do you have any plans for multiplayer? It doesn't have to be live multiplayer, but something like a leaderboard for mission times, least health lost, etc. Also, what vehicles do you plan to add? I think the vehicles are a great touch, by the way.

    Thanks. :) Leaderboards are actually a great idea, thanks! Live multiplayer would be a lot harder to implement of course. My original graphics designer bailed (D:), so I need to find a new one before I can get working on more vehicles. I will probably add a helicopter and a jeep, maybe more. :)

    The background now becomes more blurred and white as it goes further away. Also added watch towers that enemies spawn on :)

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
